What is Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination aims to produce lustrous, flawless brows. The high-shine effects, which are also occasionally referred to as “brow perms,” are frequently desired by people who may have sparse or unruly brows.
Brow lamination, which is a semi-permanent process, might be a suitable choice if you want to maintain a specific brow style but would like to eliminate using brow gel every day.
The finished product is incredibly smooth brows that appear to have brow gel on them. It is also a great microblading alternative.
“This process relaxes and redirects your brow hairs upwards and into position with a light perm solution, neutralizing lotion, and moisturizing treatment. The relaxed hairs give the illusion of appearing longer and more voluminous. Brow lamination is a great service for those wanting a ‘fluffy’ brow without using brow gel, or if your natural brow hairs are curled, unruly, or point downwards.
Brow lamination benefits
Eyebrow laminating can help with a multitude of issues with your own brows, including:
- hair thinning that may develop with age
- brow gaps caused by overplucking or overwaxing in the past
- wayward hair that, despite brushing, tends to move in opposite directions
an absence of contour or unevenness
Eyebrow lamination is believed to make brows appear larger and fuller. Pulling the hairs up vertically may also give the appearance of fresh growth. The entire procedure is also non-invasive.
Side effects and possible risks
While brow lamination is less intrusive than brow tattooing, or other similar procedures, there are some negative effects to be aware of before scheduling your session. These dangers are largely associated with skin irritation induced by the substances.
These are some examples:
The negative effects may be felt just beneath and above the brows, but they may also affect your eyelids.
This technique is not advised if you have:
- skin sensitivity
- dermatitis from touch
Just as perming your hair on your head can cause dryness and damage, brow laminating may do the same to your brows. If you repeat the operation too frequently or sooner than 6 weeks, your risks increase.
