WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading or Feather Touch brows is a semi-permanent brow design and is the most natural looking type of cosmetic tattoo.  A microblade is used to imitate real hairs following the natural hair growth pattern of the brow.  Small micro lines are made in the upper layer of the epidermis where coloured pigment is implanted to create beautiful full brows.  PhiBrow pigments are of the highest quality and  they are the first pigment on the market which comes with the manufacturers guarantee that it will not change its shade with time, in comparison to the after-healing shade.  All pigments are formulated so they will not migrate under the skin meaning that the strokes will be much sharper in appearance.  They are nontoxic, vegan and not tested on animals!!

HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?

Each person will experience slightly different results as not one skin is the same and everyone heals differently!  Microblading can last between 6-18 months but sometimes longer.  Factors such as medication, active skincare, professional skin treatments, sun exposure and lifestyle all reduce the life of your brows!

IS MICROBLADING PAINFUL?

This really depends on the persons pain tolerance.  Initially the first micro strokes are designed with no topical anaesthetic, this is done so we can achieve fine crisp strokes.  Some clients have said that is feels like small pinches and others say it is nothing worse than tweezing!

DO I NEED A CONSULTATION FOR MICROBLADING?

Initially all interested clients are sent a contraindications list to determine weather microblading is suitable for you!  From there we recommend a complimentary consultation to discuss information regarding the microblading process.  In some circumstances such as distance, or if you feel more comfortable with email communication then I am happy to do this also.  If you want to proceed you will need to pay a deposit of $100 to secure your appointment time. There is a 48 hour cancellation fee.  Any appointment cancelled within the 48 hours will lose the deposit!

HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING TREATMENT TAKE?

Please allow up to 3 hours for your initial microblading appointment and 1.5 hours for the touch up.  This may seem like a long time, but I do not like to rush and want to give 100% to every set of brows I do.  On the day of treatment, you are able to ask any additional questions or concerns that we did not discuss in the first consultation.  A brow shape is then drawn onto the skin,  is digitally checked for symmetry and then the microblading procedure is undertaken!

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MICROBLADING?

The following pre care restrictions will ensure your skin is in the best condition for a successful microblading procedure. Please do not work out on the day of the procedure as body heat expands the pores.  No alcohol 24 hours prior.  Avoid asprin or any medications that thin the blood.  Avoid fish oil, ibuprofen and any waxing or tweezing 48 hours prior to the treatment.  No sun exposure, sun tanning, cosmetic surgery or injections and no professional skin treatments 2 weeks beforehand!

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO FOR AFTERCARE & HOW WILL MY EYEBROWS LOOK?

After care is extremely important to follow and contributes to 70% of your treatments success.  You will receive a full aftercare card that has all the instructions for you to follow to take care of your new brows.  The healing process takes 7-10 days to heal, the eyebrows will appear darker,  the colour will then lighten by 40% and will shrink by 15% once healed.  The main post treatment care in the first 7 days includes not getting your eyebrows wet,  you will be provided with and aftercare cream that is to be applied on a regular daily basis,   it is recommended you wash hair just prior to your appointment.  Avoid sweating, excessive heat and sun exposure.  You will need to avoid touching, picking or scratching the brows and avoid sleeping on your face.  No make-up or cream products are to be applied to the brow area and please no professional skin care treatments for up to 30 days.  Also avoid cosmetic injections for the following 2 weeks and always avoid laser treatments over the area as that can destroy the pigment!

DO I NEED A TOUCH UP?

It usually takes 7-10 days for the skin to heal and become smooth.  It takes about 4 weeks for the pigment to settle and by this time we recommend a touch up.  The touch up is important for the overall look of your brows and allows me to add pigment to patchy areas so that we can perfect the brows!
