How Long Does Brow Lamination Last?

How Long Does Brow Lamination Last?

If you’re tired of filling in your brows and constantly trying to make them appear fuller, brow lamination is about to become your best friend. Brow lamination, where soap brows were born, is a brilliant treatment that relaxes your brow hairs and suspends them in a brushed-up style. 

There are a million and one reasons why they’re perfectly complementary for all make-up looks and occasions, so let’s break down the core reasons you’re going to fall in love with these brows!

Factors that influence how long your brow lamination lasts

Who doesn’t want to redesign their brows to create a fuller, more beautiful, and bushy look? For anyone with thinning brows or those who just prefer the appearance of brushed-up brows, brow lamination is a great alternative to more invasive procedures like microblading. There are some prominent factors that determine how long your brow lamination treatment will last.

Your skin type

Genetics determine everything. Our parents and their parents before them have passed on all the genes–good, bad, or ugly. And with those genes, your skin type alone plays a huge role in determining how long brow lamination will last. 

For some people with oily skin, taking special precautions to keep their skin from building up too much sweat or moisture around or on the brows is essential. And if your skin is too dry, that’s an issue that might require more frequent trips to your brow specialist–but only if you don’t take good care of your skin throughout the whole process.

Your brow hair and the speed of your hair growth cycle

Everyone has a different biological makeup, making every ounce of you, down to your body hair, completely different than your neighbor, and even your cousin. Your brow hair is subject to the same growth cycles as your body hair. So if you shave your brows, or pluck them, it’s important to remember that those hairs are going to grow back at different times.

If you get a brow lift or a brow tint, you might want to add a brow lamination to your services to enhance your new look. And if you’re really looking to grow those brows, take a spoolie, run some Jamaican black castor oil through them, and thank us later.

The quality of the product used by your esthetician

The esthetics industry is known for so many incredible things, and perhaps most distinctly, the will to change some lives along the way. There’s just something so magical about helping people find and harness their true beauty, inside and out. 

The truth is, your esthetician is only as good as the products they use, and you’ll need to follow up with that at home. Using high-quality skincare products when you’re winding down for bed at night is a small investment for such an enormous return–the absolute luxury of done-up brows with no upkeep required until your next appointment.

Can you extend the life of your brow lamination?

Eyebrow lamination has a shelf life, but that shelf life can be extended by taking a few extra steps to preserve your lamination treatment. Even the smallest maintenance steps make a huge difference. brow lamination

Following your brow lamination aftercare steps are essential to long-lasting brows

Brow lamination aftercare is easy to follow. And remember, the better job you do of following those instructions, the better the brow outcome.

After your brow lamination appointment, be sure to avoid getting water around the brow area for at least 24 hours. You’ll also want to steer clear of direct sunlight, sun beds, tanning, steam, rooms, or swimming pools for at least 48 hours. You’ll also want to stop using exfoliating scrub about three days before and after your appointment.

When should you book your follow-up brow appointment

You can book a laminated brow appointment every four to six weeks to keep up with care and give your stylist a chance to give you feedback and see how you’re loving living in your new brows.
