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

  • Brow laminating takes approximately an hour to complete. Optional procedure add-ons may include:
    • Removing unwanted hairs with tweezers
    • Waxing to achieve the desired arch
    • Color enhancement or altered tinting

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:

  • swelling
  • redness
  • peeling
  • itching
  • bumps

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
  • rosacea
  • eczema
  • 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.

What is the duration of brow lamination?

Premature exposure to water, sweat, and/or steam can prevent the hairs from processing properly. The growth cycle of eyebrow hair is typically three months.

RECEIVING THE TREATMENT EVERY 2-3 MONTHS IS RECOMMENDED ONCE THE BROW HAIRS HAVE COMPLETED THEIR GROWTH CYCLE TO ENSURE THE INTEGRITY OF THE HAIR IS WELL KEPT.

Yes, as long as there are natural brow hairs present, this is a terrific addition to a client’s brow that has had microblading.

Can I have a brow lamination if I'm allergic to lash and brow tints?

Because the components shown to be most likely to induce sensitivities in a lash or brow tint are not the same as those found in a lamination product, conducting a brow lamination is safe as long as it is not followed by a brow tint. All clients who have expressed sensitivities in previous services should have an ingredient allergy test performed by a dermatologist or allergist. There could be more than one chemical to which they are allergic, and a patch test is required.

What should I do to be ready for a brow lamination appointment?

Maintain your daily skincare routine in the days leading up to your visit. If you use a retinol cream, you should stop using it 5-7 days before your lift/lamination treatment and for 5 days afterwards to avoid drying out your skin from the chemical process. This is something I usually recommend when waxing to keep the skin’s integrity intact. Do not trim or tweeze your own brows for at least 2 weeks before this service to ensure the greatest outcomes with the broadest brow possible.

What brow cosmetics should I avoid after having my brows laminated?

Pomades, brow waxes, some brow pencils, and boy brow are all products that are not good for your hair after brow lamination. I always recommend avoiding wax-based brow style treatments like those listed after laminating since they can clog your pores and trigger hair shedding.

Why can't i get my brows wet after a lamination?

Keeping your brows dry in the 24 hours following your lamination treatment is critical, similar to a lash lift. We utilize a variety of lotions and a permanent gel to relax and contour your brows during the laminating process. If you get your brows wet too soon after we finish applying these treatments, they won’t have time to settle into their new shape.
