Phi Brows is another method of semi-permanent eyebrows using the microblading technique. Pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using a sterilised tool. The pigment is chosen to match the natural hair or brow colour. Strokes are drawn in the direction of natural hair growth to achieve a natural looking brow.

What is the difference between emBrowdery and Microblading?
emBrowdery and Microblading both fall under the category of tattoos. Both also use a manual tool. The needle formation used for emBrowdery is exclusive to this treatment whereas microblading can be done with many types of needles from U shape to sloped shaped.
The aim of microblading is to lightly deposit pigment into hair thin cuts which the therapist achieves by blading down into the upper layers of the dermis. The pigment is entrapped in the skin when the micro cuts heal, thus the result is achieved after the first treatment. A top up is usually required to touch up areas where the colour might have faded but only approx 15% of the colour is expected to fade.
The emBrowdery technique is different in that the main aim is to not press down into the skin at all. The technique used is similar to plucking which we know, never scars the skin. emBrowdery only utilises the epidermis of the skin where there are no blood capillaries, thus avoiding bleeding and making it possible to work without anesthetic.
emBrowdery is a building up of pigment into the brow area over a course of 3 treatments. The theory is that the immune system carries the pigment down to the basal layer thereby eliminating the need to push pigment down into the skin. The first treatment cannot last as we know up to 60% of the color will fade in the first month. For those who are nervous about how the brow will suit them, this is the perfect choice.
The end result of both treatments are very similar and the difference mainly lies in the technique used. At Up To My Eyes we also offer Phi Brows but our preferred technique is emBrowdery because the chances of scarring the skin are greatly reduced.
