Do you want to replace your thinning eyebrows with full, healthy-looking brows that require little or no daily maintenance? Brow lamination, the latest trend in eyebrow shaping, seeks to help you create beautifully shaped eyebrows for up to six weeks.
Brow Lamination - What is it?
The process of brow lamination, created in Russia, has since been adopted by the western world. Brow lamination has been described as a perm for the eyebrow because it seeks to hold brow hair in place.
Brow lamination provides a low-cost solution to those who experience brow thinning or wish to cover gaps in the eyebrow. This technique gives the illusion of fuller, thicker eyebrows. The illusion happens when your eyebrow hair is lifted in a vertical position, resulting in an eyebrow with a sleek and high shine finish.
Besides giving you the perfectly shaped eyebrow, you will find that brow lamination is an excellent alternative to microblading. Many prefer this technique because it is not invasive and provides striking results. The best part of this service is that you can get the eyebrows you have always wanted in less than an hour. It offers a significant impact on your look for little investment. This service costs about $60.
What You Need to Know about the Brow Lamination Process
In order to undergo the brow lamination process, you will need to stop trimming your eyebrows for about two weeks. You need about two weeks of growth to get the best results. Brow lamination is suitable for most skin types but is not recommended to those who have hypersensitive skin because of the chemicals used in the service. You will want to avoid using products on your eyebrows the day you plan to get the process done. It is recommended that the area is gently cleansed the day of your brow lamination.
Brow lamination gives your over plucked brows a makeover without using needles or having to apply permanent make up. The process is done in three simple parts. First, a lifting cream is applied to the brow in order to allow the hair to be reshaped. Once the hair is brushed into its new shape, a neutralizer is applied. The neutralizer sets the newly created shape. Finally, oil is applied to hydrate the brow hairs that were dried out during the chemical process.
Is Brow Lamination Safe?
While the brow lamination technique can give you a look you want, it is essential to understand the risks associated with the process. The chemicals used can have a drying effect on the surrounding sensitive skin. This may irritate the skin and result in the development of eczema (a skin condition associated with red itchy dry skin.)
The development of eczema is not the most alarming health problem that could arise from undergoing eyebrow lamination. Your eyes and vision have the potential to be permanently damaged by the chemicals used in the process. It would help if you were careful that the chemicals used do not get into your eye. If you plan to get the procedure is done, it is important to find a professional with substantial experience with brow lamination. Home eyebrow perm kits are sold, but I would recommend getting brow lamination done at a qualified cosmetician if you have never done it yourself before.
