Tint and Lamination Questions

What is brow lamination?

It’s a mini perming service designed specifically for brows. The process involves securing the hair in an upward stroke pattern, then setting them into place with a gentle brow perming solution. Adding tint to your service is a great option for extra richness and depth.

How many times can Brow Lamination be repeated? 

The service can be repeated at any time when the effect weakens around 4-6 weeks.

How safe is the treatment?

The treatment is safe! All products are specially developed for the eye area under the strictest guidelines and are very well tolerated. 

What should be considered after the treatment? 

After lamination, the eyebrows are malleable and still flexible. Therefore, the eyebrows should not come into contact with water or steam for 24 hours after the treatment. Mechanical movements such as rubbing, exfoliating, swimming and going to the sauna should be avoided in the first 24 hours after the treatment. 

Can I get my brows waxed at the same time?

Yes, any type of hair removal will need to be done at the end of your brow lamination and as well after tinting brows.

Is Brow Lamination also suitable for thin and few eyebrows?
Even very thin eyebrows can appear fuller as a result of the treatment. The new shape of the brows makes them appear longer and thicker.

What are the contraindications for brow lamination?

Very dry skin. If you use a retinol cream daily, or AHA/BHA cleansers your skin may be too dry for this service and you should discontinue use 5-7 days prior to your treatment depending how intensive your skin care routine is, to avoid redness and dry skin in the treated brow area. You can not receive this service if you have recently had any aggressive recent facial procedures (chemical peels, microdermabrasion, micro needling, and laser treatments) If you’re experiencing active acne breakouts or wounds in the brow area this service should not be done on open wounds or active breakouts. If you’re experiencing certain types of hormonal changes or thyroid conditions that cause hair loss you should wait to receive this service until things balance out in your system.

Can I get brow lamination if I'm pregnant?
Please check with your physician.
