PhiShading is a technique that involves a combination of microblading and manual shading together.
This technique creates more dense, fuller looking eyebrows that appears to be powdered, but with hair strokes (microblading).
Perfecting and 6-12 week follow up Sessions are included
Sessions are by appointment only.
We recommended to book 3-4 weeks in advance as slots are filling up fast!
Please allow 2-3 hours for your appointment.
Must be booked within 10-24 months.
Anything over 24 months from your last session is full price.
PhiShading is great for:
Clients who have alopecia
Clients that have very thin eyebrows or very little eyebrow hair
Clients who have inconsistent distribution of hair throughout their brows (such as a dense amount of hair at the head of the brow, but little hair at the tail of the brow)
Before your appointment, the skin should not be burnt, nor in recovery or regeneration process.
The following treatments are not recommended 30 days before the treatment:
Botox manipulates the area of the skin and can change the look of your eyebrows entirely.
Botox also moves around the pigment that is placed under your skin leaving you with uneven eyebrows.
Consuming alcohol or caffeine the night before or day of your appointment isn’t recommended.
It’s highly recommended clients do not have sun or tanning bed exposure for 30 days prior to appointment.
The day of the treatment: Absorb
After the procedure, gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until the oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids.
Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don’t worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results after your procedure.
Important note about showering:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
What to expect the next few days:
The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed.
Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker.
There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside.
Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result.
New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.
Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.
The skin begins to flake — peeling from the outside edges first.
Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.
What to aviod in the next 30 days:
The known possible complications are:
Sunbathing, solarium, light therapies, chemical peelings, fruit acids, microdermabrasions, creams that contain regeneration factors.
Always avoid laser treatments over your new eyebrow area (fraxel, laser, ipl) as this can destroy the pigments and cause burns.
Use of antibiotics and hormonal therapy can lead to a faster pigment fading. Always protect the eyebrows from the sun with SPFs (No SPF during the first 7 days).
PhiShading is semi-permanent and lasts between one and three years.
