What is brow lamination? Brow lamination (also called brow sculpt or brow lift) is the process of taming unruly brow hairs and giving the brows a full, brushed up, defined look with semi-permanent results. Brow lamination changes the direction in which the hair grows. It relaxes your brow hairs so they can be placed into a new direction, and reset. If you have gaps in your brows, or areas that are not growing as fast, brow lamination can lay hairs over areas that are more sparse than others.
How long does brow lamination last? Your brow lamination in West Kelowna can last anywhere from three to eight weeks, depending on your brow hair’s natural growth cycle and your hair type. People with thinner hair will notice longer lasting results as the hair will more easily stay in place. If your brows are thick and/or coarse, the procedure may not last as long, or be as effective.
How do I prepare for brow lamination? You do not need to do anything to prepare for your brow lamination, however, there are some instances when a brow lamination may not be suitable:
You must have brow hair in order to get brow lamination in West Kelowna.
Grow your brows out as much as possible before your procedure to allow as much hair as possible to work with.
Individuals with skin allergies or a history of reactions to skin products should be cautious when it comes to getting a brow lamination.
Avoid brow lamination if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Avoid brow lamination if you have had microdermabrasion or have used retinol, benzoyl, AHAs or BHAs within the past month (such as those in facial peels). These types of products increase the risk of a reaction during the treatment.
Brow lamination can be done if you’ve had microblading, but it is best to wait 12 weeks following the final microblading touch-up before getting laminated.
Brow Lamination Aftercare Proper aftercare following a brow lamination is essential for optimum hair health and will prolong the length of your treatment.
You will be provided with a small jar of castor oil which should be applied to the brows every night to ensure the hairs are kept healthy and hydrated post treatment and do not become brittle and damaged.
Do not get your brows wet within the first 24 hours. This includes but is not limited to excessive moisture and steam from saunas and baths.
Do not apply makeup to the brow area within the first 24 hours.
Avoid contact with direct sunlight or sunbeds for the next 48 hours.
Avoiding excessive rubbing or touching of the brows.
Avoid sleeping on your front within the first 24-48 hours.
Remember, brow lamination is a low maintenance not a no maintenance treatment which means you will need to brush your brows into place each morning and set using a brow gel, balm or styling soap (available on Amazon for approximately $10)
