Phibrows Treatment

The best brows in the world

About Phibrows Treatment

PhiBrows is a manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing. Shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to the golden intersection (phi 1.618) and face morphology.

The pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using sterilized tools.

The pigment is chosen so to match the natural hair or eyebrows’ colour. After the healing, the colour may become several hues lighter that the natural hairs’ colour.

Symmetry is achieved through PhiBrows application and it is calculated while the clients’ eyes are closed because in that way mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrows’ symmetry are relaxed.

Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hairs’ growth to achieve hyper-realistic look.

Benefits of Phibrow Treatment.

Eyebrows are the frame of the face and when designed correctly they can add symmetry and definition to lift the eyes and create a more youthful appearance. Those who have sparse or light eyebrows can enjoy a perfectly shaped natural looking brow created with single hair strokes or a soft textured look. Even those with non-existent brows can have the benefit of looking their best all day everyday.

Questions & Answers.

  • How long does the treatment take?

    Permanent Make Up is a 2 step process.

    Step 1. The initial procedure takes one hour. During this time, a consultation is undertaken, a colour tone is selected and the initial outline of the procedure area is drawn for the client to approve. Once the client is completely satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and the permanent pigmentation is applied.

    Step 2. The second stage of the treatment is called a ‘touch up’ and takes up to forty minutes. This usually happens after thirty days because it takes that time for the pigment to settle in the skin. The ‘touch up’ gives the client an opportunity to get used to the initial finish before the final touch up consolidates the pigment into the skin preventing fading

  • How long does Permanent Make Up last?

    Some therapists will quote two to five years. However, experience has taught Elizabeth that there is no guarantee as each individual will respond differently. In order to keep the look fresh, a ‘touch up’ is advisable every 12– 18 months. More frequent ‘touch ups’ may be required where the client chooses a soft lighter shade.

  • Are permanent cosmetics really permanent?

    Technically, permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the colour is implanted into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo, fading can and often does occur requiring periodic ‘touch ups’.

  • Does it hurt?

    Not usually. However, everyone has a different level of sensitivity so topical anesthetics are applied during the treatment to alleviate any sensation or discomfort.

  • Will I be able to go out after the procedure without people noticing?

    After the procedure, the area treated will be darker and more intense. This will last for a few days until the area exfoliates and the true colour emerges. Generally, only the client will notice the change. Other people may notice that “something” is different, but they are unlikely to identify the source of the difference.

    Those who:

    • Apply their Make Up daily
