Examples of Phi Removal Indications are:

  • Permanent Makeup (PMU) or tattoo looks old fashioned
  • PMU or tattoo is of poor quality
  • Pigment migration
  • The client is not satisfied with the shape
  • Unwanted Pigment Evolution
  • Social Causes
  • Operations, Injections
  • Unevenly introduced pigment
  • Uneven depth
  • The shape is not drawn before the procedure
  • Strict or very rounded inner corners of the eyebrows
  • Use of titanium dioxide-based camouflage

About the treatment

PhiRemoval product is based on glycolic acid.  This ingredient features high penetration.  When applied to the skin, it deeply penetrates surrounding tissues as well.  For this reason, there is no need to expose the skin to severe mechanical procedures by PMU machines or manual techniques because the product itself performs some share of work.  We just have to exploit its advantages.  We apply a staccato motion that is well known in music as master motion.  This staccato motion perfectly “opens” the skin, thus avoiding damaging the skin.  Having penetrated into the depositing skin layer, PhiRemoval liquefies it and “pulls” it up.

PhiRemoval is non-color selective (applicable to all tattoo colors), efficient, less scarring and significantly less expensive.  If properly applied, only one treatment or some more is needed for permanent makeup removal.  However, 2-6 treatments are needed for body tattoo removal with minimal scarring risk.  The time required for the treatment depends upon the removal area.  The treated area initially experiences erythema (redness), which gradually diminishes, leaving the skin perfectly normal. PhiRemoval is effective for both body tattoos and permanent makeup, as well as for microblading.

It will be worth saving your money and investing in professional tattoo removal to ensure you get the best removal results and keep in mind that there is something that will make your lives attractive and comfortable again.

After Care & Healing

Your post procedure care consists of cleaning your eyebrows with cotton pads and water every 2–3 hour after your procedure. Apply the healing balm before bed. On the next day clean the balm and then brows should be DRY HEALED for the next 10 days. This means that your brows cannot get wet at all. We will provide you with protective visors for showering. It would be best to wash and cleanse your face with a washcloth or wipes for these ten days to avoid any splashing on your brows. In addition, not profuse sweating (exercising, hot yoga and the sauna will have to be on pause for 10 days), no creams, no makeup directly on the brows, and no sun exposure (if you know you will need to be in the sun for extended periods of time you must wear a wide brimmed hat). You must let the scabbing process happen naturally. This is very important for your retention and skin healing. Do NOT pick at the scabs, scratch your brows, peel your scabs off, or scrub the area. This can result in scarring and will affect your overall retention of the pigment. After 10 days you may resume your normal life and beauty routines.

Micro-blading & Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup can dramatically change your life making it simple and more enjoyable.

Micro-blading Eyebrows

Imagine having fuller looking, perfectly shaped brows everyday. No more worries about your makeup smudging, or getting them wet, or reapplying makeup throughout the day. Micro-blading is a manual technique used to create the appearance of brow hairs. This yields a realistic and natural result that can give the brow a fuller appearance.

Microblading does not require any tweezing, waxing, plucking, or shaving of the brows and does not damage the existing brow hair. Topical anesthetics are applied during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum.

Duration: 2.5 – 3hrs
Price: Initial: $500 | Touchups: $200

PLEASE NOTE: For the first 7-10 days, eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and thicker due to scab formation and the natural skin healing process of the immune system. This is common and to be expected for all permanent makeup procedures. Micro-blading is not for everyone, for clients with oily skin, micro-blading strokes may fade faster and need more touchups. If you have oily skin, we recommend a powder or a combination brows.

Combination of Blade and Machine

Get the best of both worlds with this amazing technique! The combo brow combines the hair strokes of microblading with the shading. This achieves the most natural look possible for the brow with more of a 3D effect. This technique is good for those who have particular emptiness in their brows or patchy spots, and/or for those who just want a fuller looking brow.

Prior to the procedure we will shape and customize your brows to a size and shape that compliments your facial features and brings out your eyes. We will also select a color that best matches your natural complexion and skin tone baring in mind undertones and skin conditions. Topical anesthetics are applied during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. A touch up is required 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure

Duration: 2.5 – 3hrs
Price: Initial: $600 | Touchups: $200

PLEASE NOTE: For the first 7-10 days, eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and thicker due to scab formation and the natural skin healing process of the immune system. This is common and to be expected for all permanent makeup procedures.

Powder Eyebrows

No more filling in your brows! This is a machine technique which achieves a natural soft powder look. By brushing the skin with a single nanoneedle, we build the pigment layer by layer, producing a gradient of color from dark to light. This mimics the natural color progression of the brow from the tail and the core to the bulb. Ombre is a technique that is less selective in terms of ideal candidacy and can be more successful for those with oily/acne-prone skin, aging skin, sensitive skin, and even those who have had previous permanent makeup. 

Prior to the procedure, we will shape and customize your brows to a size and shape that compliments your facial features and brings out your eyes. We will also select a color that best matches your natural complexion and skin tone, bearing in mind undertones and skin conditions. Ombre does not require any tweezing, waxing, plucking, or shaving of the brows and does not damage the existing brow hair. Topical anesthetics are applied before and during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. 

Duration: 2.5 – 3hrs
Price: Initial: $550 | Touchups: $200

PLEASE NOTE: For the first 7-10 days, eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and thicker due to scab formation and the natural skin healing process of the immune system. This is common and to be expected for all permanent makeup procedures.

Lip Blush

Beautiful, pouty lips with a natural-looking tint of color? Sounds like every woman’s dream! This service yields soft and natural results while keeping pain and discomfort to a minimum; not to mention, the aftercare process requires no downtime! Tinted lips help to enhance your natural shape, giving your lips a contour without seeing a defining line. It can even help with scarring on the lips and uneven skin tone.

Tinted lips do not impact your ability to wear lipstick, and it can fully be covered by any lip product whenever you want. This technique is so soft, people will be wondering what lip product gives you such a balanced look! A touch up is required 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. After that, touch ups are determined on an individual basis.

Duration: 2.5 – 3hrs
Price: Initial: $600 | Touchups: $200

PLEASE NOTE: For the first 4-5 days, lips may be sensitive to touch, slightly swollen, appear uneven, and the color may be brighter than desired. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic lip procedures.

Shaded Eyeliner

Effortlessly glamorous and soft, this technique is the ultimate PMU for eyes. Dusty eyeliner is a multi-faceted technique which creates eyeliner and shading. A natural gradient of “dusty” color is created from the top line of the eyeliner. This is a unique technique that gives your eyes a bold and sexy look while maintaining a soft delicate effect.

The best part is you never have to worry about smudging or your eye makeup running. Topical anesthetic is applied before and during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. The procedure requires approximately 3 hours and there is no “downtime”. A touch up is required 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure. After that, touch ups are determined on an individual basis.

Duration: 2.5 – 3hrs
Price: Initial: $350 | Touchups: $120

PLEASE NOTE: For the first 4-5 days, eyes may be slightly swollen, appear uneven, and may be sensitive to the touch.

Beautiful salon! Such a warm, relaxing atmosphere. Had a micro dermabrasion facial/ treatment with Adriana, who was very knowledgeable. She explained everything she was doing and recommended future treatments in a way I could understand. Not pushy at all which I appreciated. I plan on returning in the near future!

Her results speak for themselves! I get compliments on my brows all the time. She is extremely professional and meticulous in her approach. Her salon is immaculate, her prices are fair for the quality of her work, and I will continue to use her services. I've been a repeat customer for 3 years now.

This is the second time I used Greta’s services. Both times her work came out incredible. The atmosphere was very welcoming. Greta was very professional, keen to detail, and she made me feel very taken care of. I would recommend her to anyone over and over again. Very satisfied costumer.

I cannot recommend Greta more! I got my eye brows microbladed for the first time last year and just visited again for my one year touch up. The shape that Greta created for my eyebrows completely transformed my face! She takes her time, is meticulous and her work is amazing! Not to mention, the salon is beautiful and so clean.
