PhiBrows is a manual, semi-permanent technique of hyper-realistic eyebrow drawing in which the shape of eyebrows is calculated according to facial morphology and golden proportion (phi 1,618).The technique is intended for anyone over the age of 18 (persons under 18 must be accompanied by their parents) who wants to correct the aesthetic problems of their eyebrows. In order to successfully perform the treatment, the skin must not be in the regeneration process, i.e. it must not be damaged. If there is eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, pimples or any damage in the eyebrows area, seven days before treatment the client can use PhiTopic cream that will eliminate the problems (instructions for use can be found on the package). PhiTopic is available/can be ordered in the salons where the treatments are done.
Pain during the treatment is relative. Scared clients usually feel stronger pain, while the other clients compare such pain with the one that they feel when tweezin out their eyebrows. In addition, with women on their menstrual cycle there is an increased sensitivity to pain, so it is not recommended to do the treatment while ladies have their period. It is possible to use light anesthetics, in the form of cream or liquid, to completely eliminate pain during the treatment.
Abrasive treatments such as peelings, fruit acids, chemical peels, laser treatments and similar should be avoided a month before the treatment. Also, one month before the treatment, botox or fillers should not be used. Pigment is applied manually in the surface layer of the dermis. Pigment is determined according to the natural color of the eyebrows and hair. After healing, pigment can become several nuances brighter compared to natural hair color.
Symmetry is calculated using PhiBrows application. It is calculated while the clients’ eyes are closed because in that way mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrows’ symmetry are relaxed. Pictures of prepared shapes, as well as all other important information, are stored in the application, under the Treatment History section. Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hair growth in order to achieve hyper-realistic eyebrow look.
Treatment is done by using sterile and disposable tools, while pigments are of the highest standard (PhiBrows microblading pigments). Correction is done a month after the treatment as 10-15% of strokes are lost after the first treatment. Inserted pigment is very dark during the first 5 to 7 days. 7 days later, it loses up to 40% of its intensity. If you think that pigment is too dark, do not try to fade it by yourself. Be patient, first wait for 7 days until it fades away naturally. For how long the pigment will be retained mostly depends on the skin oiliness. The oilier the skin is the shorter pigment retention is. Sweating and sun exposure also affect pigment retention. On average, expected time until new refreshment of pigment is 10 to 12 months. If the skin is oily, it takes up to 6 months. Healing is completely done 28 days later and then it is necessary to add the pigment that was lost in the meanwhile. If the skin is problematic and oily, several such corrections can be made.
Post-treatment care makes 70% of total treatment success. Conscientiously adhere to the given advice, because if you don’t do that, you can lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. Rinsing and applying the cream is of great significance.

During the first week of healing avoid all creams, makeup and cleansers (except recommended) in brow area. Avoid excessive sweating, facials and any grooming of brow hair like waxing or threading.
In the next 30 days avoid acne treatments, regenerative creams, excessive sun exposure and always use SPF protection after 7 days.
After the treatment the brows will go through several stages of healing, like any superficial wound on the skin. Keep in mind that the final results are seen after a minimum of 28 days.
The healing process is unique to each individual and you may or may not experience all of these changes. You may also experience them faster or slower depending on your immune system's ability to heal. It is extremely important to let the skin shed naturally and avoid picking, pulling, scrubbing, scratching or exfoliating. Applying a very small amount of Skin Candy will help soothe the skin.
