Did you know your eyebrows can be treated better with microblading procedures that a simple good ol’ threading just cannot do? Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that helps provide the illusion of naturally vibrant, fuller eyebrows. We use specialized medical-grade blades to appropriately mimic eyebrow hairs right below the top-most layer of your skin. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the beauty industry, microblading offers a hassle-free eyebrow solution.
We, at Soft Touch Studio, Toronto, head an experienced team of microblading professionals with our PhiBrow Master Taiyaba. We gauge the best microblading procedures suited for your facial composition and structure, and advise you accordingly. Let the brow pencils, powders, and gels collect some dust, for there’s a world of semi-permanent plush, smudge-proof and waterproof eyebrows waiting at our studio!
Are You Eligible for Microblading/ PhiBlading?
If you are wondering if you qualify as the right candidate for a microblading treatment, make sure you check off a short list: if you have thinning or sparse eyebrows or experience hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia, over-plucking, or age-related hair-thinning symptoms, microblading can be the perfect solution!
Make sure you disclose all medical conditions and clarify your skin type, history, proneness to sensitivity, healing propensity, and hair growth patterns to our PhiBrow Master, Taiyaba before getting started with the process.
Microblading is not recommended for the demographic with the following conditions:
- Skin condition patients with Eczema, Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Rosacea, Shingles, or general tendencies of skin rashes
- Extremely oily skin or eyebrows that can affect color retention
- Pigmentation, large pores, or raised moles that can cause a powdered tinge
- Eyebrow hair transplant
- Pre-existing eyebrow tattoos and/or permanent makeup
- Undergoing acne medication such as Accutane
- Having tanned or sunburned skin during the procedure
- Any eyebrow growth conditioner that can cause hypersensitive
- Forehead injections such as Botox
- Pregnant or nursing individuals
- Proneness to keloids and/or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Diabetic patients without medical approval
- Chemotherapy patients without medical approval
- Hepatitis, Hemophilia, and HIV patients
How is Microblading/ PhiBlading Done?
We will measure your facial angles and features to find the perfect shape and length for your specific face, with the help of our PhiBrow Academy’s Golden Ratio technique. Pigment selection follows suit, where we guarantee long-lasting color pigment for the brows by factoring in the client’s lifestyle, natural hair and skin color, and level of exposure to the Sun.
Next in line is the blading process, where we use a pen-like bladed tool and carefully insert the medical-grade pigment in hair-like strokes right under the surface of the epidermis. We only penetrate the topmost layers of the skin with no residual scarring. The area is bladed 3 times to allow higher color retention and clearer visibility. The process is of approximately 2 hours
You will have to go through a follow-up procedure to complete any minor touch-ups. This has to be scheduled 6 to 8 weeks after the first procedure to let the brows heal in time. In the follow up session, Taiyaba will examine your healed brows and put in additional pigment through microblading to encourage increased longevity. This will take nearly an hour.
After Care and Longevity of MicroBlading/ PhiBlading
Since the process involves only the topmost layers of your skin, there is a little healing time required. Right after your procedure, the skin will seem slightly inflamed and your brows will appear darker than usual. Know that this is perfectly normal. Over the next two weeks, you will experience some scabbing as your eyebrows gradually lighten and the pigmentation settles. Right around this time, your skin will take on an opaque milky-color but that is a part of the process as well, as the skin tissues continue healing from within.
The whole healing process will require 2 weeks and it takes about a month for the pigmentation to settle in. Try to avoid touching your eyebrows unnecessarily or getting them wet for at least a week after the procedure. Apply antibiotic ointment or arnica pills/gel after 24 hours of the procedure to expedite the healing process. The longevity of the pigmentation and the procedure in general depends on chemical exposure to hyaluronic acid or chlorine, sun exposure, or frequent facials or skin peeling. You can expect microbladed eyebrows to last for an average of 18 to 24 months but you can opt for touch ups or color boosts after a year to extend the longevity.
An experienced technician and medical-grade color pigments are essential to avoid oxidation and gradual changes in your eyebrow tint over time, and our PhiBrow professionals are qualified to provide just that! We guarantee that your microbladed eyebrows will never fade to a purple, blue, or red tinge. We always use the best in class equipment and pigments for our PhiBlading/ microblading procedures.
