Before your phibrows appointment

 

The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated prior to microblading, so here is how you can get your skin ready for the treatment:
No use of accutane within 1 year of treatment.

Please avoid the following for 4 weeks prior to your microblading session:

  1. Botox and/or fillers (in the forehead/eyebrow areas)

  2. Chemical Peels and laser treatments

Please avoid the following for 1 week prior to your phibrows microblading session:

  1. Fish oil or Vitamin E supplements (these are natural blood thinners)

  2. Tanning or heavy sun exposure (especially having a sun-burned face)

  3. Waxing, tinting or tweezing the eyebrow area

Do not take aspirin, niacin, vitamin E, omega 3's, or ibuprofen 48-72 hours before procedure.

In order to avoid any OR excessive bleeding, including poor color deposit, please do not consume any alcohol or caffeine products within 24 hours of your microblading treatment.

No exercising or pre workout on the morning of treatment.

If you have existing tattooed or microbladed eyebrows from another artist, approval must be given PRIOR to booking your treatment.

 

Aftercare for your phibrows 

  • There will be minor redness, bruising, swelling and tenderness immediately post treatment.

  • Whilst the area is healing there can be some mild itching, flaking and crusting, this is normal.

  • Do not pick, peel, rub or touch the treated area with your fingers.

  • One hour after your treatment, wash your hands thoroughly then gently wash your brows with distilled or boiled water. Carefully wipe clean and let dry before sparingly applying the prescribed aftercare cream, with a cotton bud, single use only.

  • Wash every 2-3 hours in the first 12 hours and apply sparingly the prescribed aftercare cream after each wash. Apply aftercare product with a cotton bud, single use only. From day 2 to 7 apply aftercare sparingly 2 times a day.

  • Do not use facial cleanser on treated area for 3 to 4 days post treatment.

  • Do not wear make-up near the treated area for 3-4 days.

  • Do not received any beauty therapy treatments until skin has healed

  • water or direct shower spray

  • Do not use AHA or RetinA products on the bladed area as these products will fade the pigment colour

  • Do not use antibiotic creams on pigmented skin. Only use aftercare cream supply by us.

Journey of microblading healing

The following is a potential journey of what you may experience over 4 to 6 weeks. It is important to remember that not everyone experiences each of these.

  • Day 1-2 your eyebrows will become darker and darker as the pigment and lymph oxidises. You will think and may even regret having your brow done at this point. They may even look like they are too big or not even, this is normal.

  • Day 7-10 the relief moment and a thought of “That’s more like it!” You may have some crusting/flaking starting to form also.

  • Day 14-25 “where on earth have my eyebrows gone?” It hasn’t work!” During this time, your healing skin cells are opaque or see through. With that, you can’t actually see the pigment that was implanted. This is normal and the colour will reappear.

  • Day 21-28 “A-ha! There they are!” and yes they do need a touch up! Having a few hairstrokes missing or parts of hairstrokes missing is quite normal. You can lose up to 40% of your colour and/or stroke between your first and second treatment.

  • Day 28-42 We refresh your brows or do the second treatment. This will go through the same healing process as above. We do not treat single hairstroke, so during the healing cycle your eyebrows can appear very patchy

 

Before your lash appointment

 

Please come without make up to speed up the process.  Overbuild-up mascara is hard to thoroughly cleaned, hence may cause poor retentions.

 

Something to keep in mind that hair appointment straight after your fresh lash extensions may cause some problem on the retentions. This is due to the high humidity and heat from the hair dryer and hair wash.

Eyelash extensions after care

  • Do not wash eyes, swim, shower for 24 hours to allow adequate bonding for the lashes

  • Be gentle with your lashes, never pick or pull at your eyelash extensions

  • Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler

  • Avoid oil based cosmetic products around the eyes. This will dissolve the adhesive

  • Use only water-based facial cleansers

  • Remember to be gentle with your lashes while removing eye make up

  • Routine exposure to heat (e.g steam or heat from the stove or hair dryer may cause loosen the bond)

Lash lift after care

  • Be gentle with your lashes for the first 24 hours (this includes sleep on your face, rub or wet your lashes)

  • Do not use oil-based makeup remover

  • Do not use waterproof mascara

  • Elleevate keratin after care serum or mascara will help nourish your lashes and eliminate dry or frizziness, this two products are recommended to use daily

  • Lash growth serum (not a virgin castor oil) can be apply after 24 hours.

Shedding seasons (Telogen cycle)

 

The lifespan of our eyelashes is between 60 to 90 days. We normally lose about 1 to 5 eyelashes daily over a 2-week period. In spring and autumn, we shed more eyelashes than in summer or winter as our bodies prepare for temperature change. During this time, we also produce more oil to replenish our skin.

 

If you are experiencing this don’t panic. This is great news as it is the natural process of rejuvenating your hair growth.They continually grow, fall out, and regrow over the course of a lifetime. 

 

Understanding this process and learning to adjust your lash extension routine can give you peace of mind, knowing that your eyelash loss isn’t anything to be worried about.
