Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • What is PhiBrows?
    PhiBrows is a type of microblading for which the artist has trained with PhiAcademy. PhiAcademy is known for its rigorous training with many levels in order to be certified. PHI aka the Golden Ratio (1:1.618) is present in the most visually appealing objects in life and our eyes are naturally attracted to them. When mapping eyebrows for treatment, Phi artists use a compass which measures the Golden Ratio of the eyebrows according to each individual face. Stencils are never used. The outcome is perfectly proportioned eyebrows for each individual face.
  • What is the difference between Microblading, Powder Brows, Combo Brows and Blading + Shading?
    Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique where pigment is inserted into the skin with a hand tool one hair stroke at a time resulting in natural looking brows. Powder Brows is a semi-permanent makeup technique where pigment is shaded into the skin using a hand held machine resulting in completely filled-in brows resembling a soft powdered makeup look. ​ Combo Brows is a combination of microblading and powder brows. There are microblading hair-like strokes from the beginning to the middle of the brow to give the brow a natural look, which then transitions to a powdered effect to the body and tail of the brow to give the brow more fullness and density. Blading + Shading is where the entire brow is microbladed first, then adding shading in the areas between the newly created hair strokes resulting in natural looking brows with more depth. The amount of shading can be customized to each person's preference. Includes one touch-up session.
  • Is the 6 Week Touch Up Necessary?
    Yes! We highly recommend the touch up session. During the healing process, pigment may settle unevenly and look patchy leaving some areas more faded than others. Everyone heals and retains pigment differently. There may be some areas that required more fine tuning and shaping. These can all be addressed at the Touch Up Session, which will lead to longer lasting retention.

  • How long do the results last?
    Brow permanent makeup can last around 12-36 months depending on the individual. Much depends on the person's skin type, hormones, metabolism and lifestyle. It typically lasts longer on individuals with normal to dry skin as opposed to those with oily skin. To keep your brows looking their best, an annual touchup is recommended for those with oily skin and a 1-2 year touch up is usually recommended for those with normal to dry skin.

  • Can I go on vacation (sunny destination) right before or after doing my brows?
    Your brows will be going through the healing process at least 2 weeks after your appointment and you should not be exposing them to the sun, humidity, or water during this time. Everyone is different in how long it takes to heal but waiting 2 weeks minimum is recommended. Upon return of your trip, it is recommended to wait 1 week to ensure your skin is not burnt or sensitive. You cannot attend the session with a sunburn.
  • Can I get Botox?
    It is recommended to wait at least 2 weeks after Botox for the microblading appointment and 3-4 weeks after microblading before getting Botox.
