What Is Microblading Eyebrows?
Microblading eyebrows is a semi-permanent cosmetics technique of manually drawing and shaping eyebrows. It is performed by creating micro incisions on the surface of the skin and filling them with pigments. Microblading starts with the shaping of the eyebrows. The shape is determined according to facial symmetry. In addition to this, professionals from PhiBrows Academy, the leader in the industry, use the golden intersection technique to map out and define the brow to achieve precise proportions.
Once that is done, a microblading artist matches the pigment to natural color of the hair, creates the cuts and inserts the pigment. The entire process gives the brow a thicker, fuller and more natural look.
But to ensure a successful treatment a client has to focus on preparation. Human body is like a canvas, and a great canvas requires serious artist and serious preparation.
Preparation is Simple
Preparing for a microblading treatment is easy. More importantly, it is essential for the success of the whole procedure. There are a couple of pre-set rules to follow, and things to avoid such as:
- Tweezing, waxing, or electrolysis a week before the treatment
- Tanning or having sunburned face
- Taking fish oil or vitamin E a week before the treatment
- Receiving botox three weeks before the treatment
- Drinking alcohol 24-48 hours before the treatment
The eyebrow area must also be clean, non-sensitive, and non-irritated. Keep in mind, the beauty of the brow rests solely on the discipline of the microblading artist and the compliance of their clients.
It’s Easy to Maintain
Microblading eyebrows aftercare is as important as the preparation, maybe even more so. In this phase, the brows are already defined. There are only 3 rules to follow, commonly known as AWM or:
The pigment has to be absorbed, derivatives washed out and the area of treatment moisturized. To ensure clients maintain their outstanding eyebrows results, make sure to avoid:
- Hot showers
- Sleeping on your face
- Rubbing or scratching treated area
The AWM (absorb, wash, moisturize) is the mantra and sole reason for numerous blog posts, Facebook and Instagram stories of satisfied clients, and why true masters take pride in their “before and after” photos.
Mostly, the whole procedure lasts for 2-3 hours, and it’s a 2-step process. The first step lasts for 90 minutes. Here, the style of the brows is defined. From thin to natural and bushy look, its all upon client’s needs and preferences. And all in consultation with a technician who’s professional advice is crucial in achieving the best results.
The second part is when microblading magic happens. It lasts for 1-3 hours based on technician’s skill and expertise. Its when the pigment is deposited into the skin. At Art of Beauty Academy, our master artists use Phibrows method to achieve a natural brows look.
