Brow Lamination in Long Beach
Brow Lamination in Long Beach
The term “laminating” may spark visions of the never-ending office admin, but an innovative beauty treatment has brought us a new, and altogether more appealing meaning to the word. The pursuit of thick, bushy eyebrows is a brutal one, particularly for those lacking in that department, the treatments available to us now are boundless; a decent threading, tinting or microblading can make up for a lack of hairs, shape or strong color. However, nothing has offered that fashionable, feathery look seen so often in editorial shoots and on the runways with any kind of permanence – until now. Welcome to the world of Brow Lamination in Long Beach, where you will find a well experienced and super kind technicians at Brow Heaven.
What is Brow Lamination?
Have you ever seen those pictures of perfectly manicured eyebrows? You know the pictures we are talking about, when every hair seems to be in perfect alignment, going straight up towards the head, and shaped to perfection. You’ve probably thought to yourself, as we have many times before, how in the world can I get my eyebrows to look like that? There’s a trick to it but it’s one that might not seem obvious at first. Many of us try our best at home or go to a stylist we know and trust but still we always seem to fall short of that kind of perfection. Oh well, we think to ourselves, “I don’t have that kind of money or time to spend on my eyebrows every single day.” But that’s where you are wrong and why brow lamination is such a transformative, revolutionary process. You don’t need to set aside a fixed amount of time every day to make sure your eyebrows look good. It’s already handled for you through the process of brow lamination. Let us explain how this is done.
What Happens During Brow Lamination?
The process is simple and pretty straight forward and actually resembles that employed in salons for a perm. Initially, the stylist will treat your eyebrows with a lifting cream that helps separate the individual hairs and make them more malleable and styleable. The stylist will then begin to put the eyebrows into place but brushing them upward and perhaps trimming a few here and there. They will then be “set” in place using what is called a neutralizer. The last stage of the brow lamination process involves a nourishing, moisture-replenishing oil that keeps your eyebrows from becoming brittle and helps maintain the overall shape of the manicured eyebrow.
How Should You Prepare for a Brow Lamination Treatment?
If you take any kind of acne medication for your skin such as retinol and over-the-counter medicines then you should refrain from doing that for at least 48 hours before your brow lamination appointment. You should also arrive at your appointment without any makeup or other product on your skin. The reason for this is that you don’t want the process to dry out your eyebrows which can occur if your skin was treated with these products.
What Should You Do Post-Brow Lamination Treatment?
What can clients expect at the end of the process? For one, many report being much happier with the appearance of their eyebrows. They report a fuller look and more body or volume to them. In addition, clients love the ease of obtaining such a manicured appearance.
To preserve this, you should follow a post-brow lamination treatment plan that seeks to preserve the integrity of the process and aesthetic appearance of your eyebrows.
As with any treatment, you should avoid getting the area wet or rubbing it or disturbing it in any way. You should also hold off on any makeup, creams, oils, or other product for your skin for a little while. If you normally exercise, you’ll probably want to take a break from that for a few days and avoid really hot showers as well.
How Long Does Brow Lamination Last, and How Much Does It Cost?
If you follow proper care guidelines and avoid activities or substances that can damage the integrity of the treatment, you’re looking at anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks per treatment which can cost as little as $80 or as much as $300 in some markets.
Who Should Get Brow Lamination?
Beyond simple aesthetics, clients also discover that eyebrow management is much easier. This is particularly useful for people with “unruly” eyebrows that are difficult to manage. Brow lamination now only makes unruly eyebrows much easier to shape and maintain but also gives them a healthier appearance. The one concern many people have is using chemicals on their face. These concerns are minimal and the risks from dry skin are minimized with the application of a nourishing oil at the end of the process.
Perhaps the best reasons to explore brow lamination include easier eyebrow maintenance, presenting a more manicured appearance, and healthier, fuller eyebrows. Best of all is how long brow lamination lasts. As long as you follow all of your stylist’s instructions after the process is completed, you can expect your nice, manicured brows to last from four to six weeks before you will need another treatment. Again, some clients do have concerns about multiple processes but, as outlined above, the brow lamination is not only safe but also it is good for your eyebrows. The nourishing treatment combined with the general maintenance and care applied during the process means that your eyebrows are better cared for than the vast majority of the population out there.
That said, brow lamination is not recommended for people who have had recent treatments to their skin or people with scratches, burns, or scars near their eyes. People who are prone to allergies should also avoid the treatment.
What Are the Side Effects of Brow Lamination?
Any side effects are temporary and usually mild and involve some irritation where the treatment occurred due to the chemicals used in the process. This isn’t always the case but, because the eyelid is a delicate part of the face, it is somewhat more prone to irritation than other areas.
How Do I Care for My Brows Post-Lamination?
After your lamination treatment, make sure not to get your brows wet for the first 24 hours. Doing so can sometimes interfere with the setting process. This may mean your brow lamination works initially but will not last as long over time.
How Long Do The Results Last?
This semi-permanent treatment lasts between 4 to 6 weeks. Once gravity and natural hair growth begin to take over, you’ll notice the shape lessens and may begin to drop. But, fear not. This treatment is perfectly safe and nourishing. Therefore you’ll be able to get them laminated again once the effects of your initial treatment have worn off.
