The Do’s And Don’ts Of Brow Lamination Aftercare

Blog Home

At Ballert Medical Aesthetics, we offer brow lamination services, a popular technique for achieving fuller and more defined eyebrows. The cosmetic procedure involves restructuring the brow hairs to create a more uniform and groomed appearance. While the treatment is crucial in enhancing the brows, proper aftercare is equally important to ensure long-lasting and beautiful results.

The Do’s

Keep the Brows Dry

Keeping the treated area dry for the first 24 to 48 hours after brow lamination is crucial. Avoid getting the brows wet during this time, as moisture can interfere with the lamination process. You’ll also want to refrain from activities such as swimming or sweating excessively. By allowing the product set properly, you maximize the effectiveness of the treatment.

Use a Gentle Cleanser

You can start cleansing your brows once the initial drying period is over. However, choosing a gentle cleanser specifically formulated for the eyebrows is essential. Harsh cleansers or products containing alcohol can strip away the lamination solution, causing the effects to fade quickly. Opt for a mild, water-based cleanser that removes dirt and oil without compromising the lamination.

Brush and Style Daily

Brow lamination gives your brows a neat, uniform appearance. Regular brushing is essential to maintain this look. Use a clean, soft spoolie brush to comb your brows every day. Brushing helps to keep the hairs in place and prevents them from becoming unruly. It also encourages healthy hair growth by promoting blood flow to the follicles.

The Don’ts

Avoid Excessive Heat

Heat can disrupt the lamination process and cause the brow hairs to lose shape as well. Therefore, avoiding exposing your brows to excessive heat sources, such as saunas, steam rooms, and hot showers, is crucial. Additionally, be cautious while using heated styling tools near the brows, as the intense heat can damage the treated hairs.

Resist the Temptation To Touch

It’s natural to feel curious about your newly laminated brows but resist the urge to touch or rub them. Constant touching can transfer oils from your fingers onto the brows, causing the lamination solution to break down prematurely. It can also disturb the shape of the brows and lead to unevenness. Remember, the less you touch, the longer your lamination will last.

Avoid Oil-Based Products

Oil-based makeup or skincare products should be avoided in the brow area, as they can compromise the lamination. Oils tend to dissolve the lamination solution, reducing its effectiveness and causing the brows to lose shape. When applying makeup, opt for water-based or powder products, and remove them gently without scrubbing the brows.

Schedule A Consultation

Proper aftercare is essential for maintaining the results of your brow lamination treatment. By incorporating these tips into your aftercare routine, you can enjoy beautifully laminated brows for an extended period.
