Brow Lamination FAQ

Updated: Oct 7, 2020

Brow Lamination Is the Latest Needle-Free Alternative to Microblading


No matter what your brow concern is — gaps, thinning, overplucking, unruliness — brow lamination is an amazing solution and a great microblading alternative.


There are a few different ways to groom your brows these days, whether it be microblading, microfeathering, extensions (I didn’t know this was a thing but it is), or a good old-fashioned brow pencil. While microblading and microfeathering are semi-permanent solutions these treatments aren't for everyone. If you have a needle phobia or are nervous that you'll end up with irreversible botched brows (this is so me!), you've probably sat these two options out. As for extensions your brows may start to look uneven as the fibers fall out.


That's where brow lamination comes in, which is the latest needle-free treatment for thicker, fuller brows. It can give people fuller shaped brows they have always wanted in less than an hour and has the ability to hide small gaps and gives the illusion of major hair growth.


Those clients that are 30s to 50s – they have grown up in the 80’s and 90’s where the trend was super skinny eyebrows - so whether they have lost a lot of their brow hair, either through the natural aging process, illness, or just over-waxing and styling, this is a noninvasive, temporary, but effective way to fix their brows and in an affordable way.


What is the brow lamination process?


Brow lamination is basically a perm for your eyebrows, but without using the same harsh chemicals. It gives them a set, uniform shape for an extended period of time. So, instead of curls, a setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward for about four to six weeks.


The actual treatment begins with brow shaping and brushing the hairs upwards in place, a lifting cream is applied which creates a chemical process that breaks down bonds in each hair, allowing them to be moved into a new shape. Next, a neutralizer is applied to set the brows in their new shape, and finally a nourishing oil is added to the brows to replenish their moisture after the chemical treatment process.


From there, the brows may be styled or tinted, depending on the look you're going for.


What are the downsides of Brow Lamination?


As the eyelid skin itself is the thinnest most delicate of the body, special care and attention needs to be made with the products we use. This area is especially prone to irritation and could cause eczema, which is characterized by red, dry, itchy, and inflamed skin.


Care also has to be taken during brow lamination to ensure that over processing of the brow hairs doesn’t occur. Just as over processing the hair on your scalp with chemicals and bleach can cause breakage, dryness, and even loss of hairs, the same holds true for eyebrow hairs.



With this in mind, conditioning and nourishing the brows afterward with an oil and moisturizing cream in the same way we do so with our hair after chemically treating it is essential. Although the results give a low-maintenance look, just be sure to keep the health of your brows in mind.


How To Prepare for a Brow Lamination Treatment?


It is best to avoid using any over-the-counter topical such as retinol and prescription acne treatments for at least 48 hours before your treatment since these products can sensitize the skin, and potentially lead to irritation. Arriving at your appointment makeup-free with clean skin also helps the process.


Post-Brow Lamination Treatment?


There are a few best practices to follow post-lamination treatment to protect your new brows. Such as:


  • not wetting your brows for 24-48 hours including pools, saunas and excess sweating

  • avoid rubbing the area

  • avoid applying creams including Retin A products, oils, makeup and self tanning products

  • brush them fine new brows daily.


How Long Does Brow Lamination Last?


With proper care, brow lamination can last four to eight weeks. The price ranges from $80 to $300 depending on location and who's performing the treatment.


Is Brow Lamination Good For Everyone?


Brow lamination is generally for everyone however there are a few exceptions. It is not recommended for people who have scratches, burns, or scars near the eyes, if they have eye contamination, skin conditions, or inflammation in the eyebrow area.


You should also steer clear if you have allergies or past reactions to cosmetics, dyes, and semi-permanent tattooing such as microblading.


  • Those with Sparse Brows

  • If you are growing out the brows

  • If you're not ready to commit to Microblading or Micropigmentation

  • If you have unruly brows (Me!)

  • Those that have stubborn natural hair growth patterns (Also me!)

Any Side Effects of Brow Lamination?


Brow lamination isn't going to harm your actual brows, but while the chemicals used are gentler than an actual perm, they can still irritate your eye area when skin is exposed to them. The chemicals from the brow lamination could cause psoriasis/eczema if skin is exposed, which is characterized by red, dry, itchy, and inflamed skin.



Now that you have been educated on Brow Lamination you will see that this is an amazing alternative to microblading that can last weeks. It’s really hard to botch brows in a lamination process because you are relaxing the hairs in which you can style them any which way you like if you don’t love the upright look.


That is what is so great about this process, you can’t really screw up!!
