The technique is intended for anyone over the age of 18 who may want to correct aesthetic problems of their lips, brows and eyelids, or for those who like some subtle looking make-up always present. Pain during the treatment is relative. Anxious clients usually feel more discomfort, while other clients compare pain to brow tweezing or mild scratching. In addition, women in the middle of their period will have increased sensitivity to pain, so it is not recommended to do the treatment while ladies are on their period. Anaesthetic creams and gels are usually used for each procedure to minimise discomfort.
All treatments are done with sterile, hygienic and disposable tools that offer the clients the highest and safest standards.

During the first day gently, (without rubbing), cleanse the area treated with damp cotton pads every 30-60 minutes. Remove lymph to prevent scabs and apply the aftercare cream provided to the area. This cream can be applied any time you feel tightening of the area within the following 7 days. During the first 7 days avoid the sauna, swimming pools, make-up in the area, sun tanning, cosmetic treatments. Initial top-up treatment is recommended 6-8 weeks later when the lips/eyelids/brows are fully regenerated (healed).
PhiContour colour refresh is recommended every 18-24 months. Oily skin types may need a top-up sooner.
In order to preserve the colour for as long as possible, use SPF daily. Clients may experience some swelling the next day after lip colour or eyeliner, not usually after brow micro pigmentation. In this case, you can get cream from your doctor to reduce swelling if you are worried about it.
