Eyebrows with well-defined and flawless design is the dream of all women and also of many men, after all, eyebrows are responsible for about 30% of our facial harmonization.
No matter what your concern with the eyebrows is – gaps, thinning, excess slack, irregularity – the lamination of the eyebrows is an incredible solution and a great alternative to microblading.
What is Eyebrow Lamination?
This innovative technique originated in Russia and is already taking over the North American market and inflating instagram feeds. In it, the gaps in the eyebrows are filled, which gives them the illusion of fullness and growth in a quick and non-invasive way. The treatment raises the unruly or faded strands of the eyebrows in a more vertical direction, smoothing with a semi permanent ink.
The eyebrow lamination treats the eyebrow hair in order to align them and display them in a more vertical position, that is, following a pattern and reinforcing its design. Another great benefit is that the eyebrow hair, which may also be faded, have their color uniform and highlighted.
This procedure smoothes and straightens the hair, helping to redirect its natural growth pattern to a more desirable and uniform shape. If your hair is thin, thin or straight, the lamination of the eyebrow will fix it, creating a smooth pattern that looks like eyebrow gel.
Who is Brow Lamination indicated for?
If you have unruly eyebrows and do not want to spend hours of your life fixing them, or, alternatively, if you have almost no eyebrows and want to give them the appearance of thicker and feathered arches, lamination of the eyebrows is necessary.
The treatment is indicated for clients looking for the growth of spaced areas of the hair and want to improve the shape of the eyebrows, but have problems with hair fading with other procedures.
It is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing mothers and allergy sufferers.
How is the application carried out?
In this treatment, specific products are used to keep the eyebrows aligned and combed in the same direction, without using micropigmentation, the most popular technique for eyebrows. Lamination products combine moisturizing and lifting properties with pigment to create the fixing effect. After the hair are combed upwards, an oil is applied to hydrate the area.
The summary of the steps is as follows:
1. Initially, a consultation is carried out to find the right shape and style for your face.
2. A mild, vegan solution is applied to make the hair smooth and supple.
3. A moisturizing serum is applied to moisturize the hair.
4. A natural-looking shade is then applied (the shade depends on the color of your eyebrow).
5. Finally, a nutrient serum is applied.
The treatment begins with the application of a lifting cream on the eyebrow that creates a chemical process that breaks the bonds in each hair, allowing them to be moved to a new shape. Then, the eyebrow hairs are combed in place and a neutralizer is applied to reform the ties in their new shape.
A plastic cover is inserted over the eyebrows and the treatment products and remains for a few minutes. The eyebrows become fuller, more voluminous and more uniform. After removing the plastic, a new application of lamination cream is carried out and the process is repeated until the final application of the hardening cream.
A nourishing oil is then applied to the eyebrows to replenish the moisture after the chemical treatment process. From there, the eyebrows can be pinched, waxed or painted, depending on the desired appearance.
This entire procedure takes, on average, about 50 minutes to be applied. It is painless and comfortable, with no itching, tingling or burning.
What to know before applying?
The lamination treatment, performed by skilled and skilled hands, will not harm your eyebrows but, although the chemicals used are milder than a permanent one, they can still irritate the eye area and eyelids when the skin is exposed to them . If you are concerned about having a reaction, remember that it is always important to visit a professional you trust.
The amateur application can cause breakage, dryness and even hair loss due to excessive applications of chemicals or incorrect choice of chemicals. It is essential to condition and nourish the eyebrows with oil and moisturizing cream in the same way that we do with hair after chemical treatment.
Before the procedure, it is recommended to stop using retinoids, AHAs, BHAs and physical scrubs to ensure that the skin is prepared and ready.
How long does it last?
The lamination of the eyebrow is impressively long-lasting; a treatment can keep the eyebrows looking ‘brushed’ and beautiful for up to 2 months. Maintenance is recommended every 6-8 weeks.
During the first 24 hours:
• Do not wet your eyebrows.
• Avoid touching the treated area and do not apply makeup on the eyebrows.
• Do not apply any cream or oil around the eyebrow area.
• Avoid saunas, steam baths or activities that cause excessive sweating.
During the first 72 hours:
• Avoid using retinoids, AHAs, BHAs and scrubs.
During the first week:
• Epilation or shaping of the eyebrow is not recommended within a week after treatment. The unwanted hair will have been removed after the service.
From the second day, it is recommended to use a nutritious balm in the treated area.
