Brow Lamination Candidates
Individuals with all hair types and colors can benefit from brow lamination. It is also a great option for those with thin and minimal hair growth that do not wish to undergo microblading. However, this treatment is not recommended for those who have scars, burns, or scratches near their eyes, have skin conditions or inflammation in the brow area, have a history of severe allergies, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The Brow Lamination Treatment
Before your brow lamination treatment, your practitioner may have you take certain steps to prepare, including avoiding the use of Retin-A, AHA, and exfoliating in the days leading up to treatment. It is also advised that you let your eyebrow hair grow in for 3-4 weeks before your appointment.
During treatment, you will lie back on a comfortable treatment table. A cream to lift up your brow hairs will first be applied, and then the hairs will be brushed upward. A neutralizer will then be applied to keep your brows in place. Lastly, nourishing oil is applied to help prevent skin irritation or hair dryness. Treatment usually takes about one hour to complete.
Patients can also choose to add on eyebrow waxing to their brow lamination treatment to help create their desired eyebrow shape.
After Brow Lamination
Following your brow lamination, you may experience slight redness or minor irritation to the skin of the brows. It is important that you avoid rubbing your brows and getting your brows wet for 24 hours and avoid contact with saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools, tanning beds, and direct sunlight for 48 hours. It can also be helpful to sleep on your back during the first night to prevent your brows from pushing up against your pillow. You will need to apply a cream or oil every night to keep your brows in place. Results can last for 6-8 weeks before another treatment is needed.
