Eyebrow lamination - the better alternative to microblading.
Beauty care has many facets, because from skin care to make-up to the care of our eyebrows and eyelashes, there are several steps and many different challenges. At the same time, especially well groomed and styled eyebrows can affect our appearance. Eyebrows play a crucial role as they give structure and expression to the face. In the field of eyebrow care, an innovative method has become popular in recent years that can be used to shape the brows: eyebrow lamination. In this blog post, we would like to present why lamination is considered the better alternative to microblading.
What is eyebrow lamination?
Eyebrow lamination - also called browlifting - is a kind of "perm" for your eyebrows, so it's roughly like a perm. The semi-permanent procedure aims to make your eyebrows look thicker, fuller and perfectly shaped.
The process of lamination basically involves the application of a special serum to the eyebrows. In the first step, the keratin structure of the brow hairs is broken and they are made stretchy. In the second step, the hairs are treated with a preparation and then the eyebrows are shaped and fixed. This allows you to style the eyebrows as you wish and they look denser. The end result is a smoother, more textured eyebrow with a brushed "up" look. The entire process takes no more than 20 minutes and you can save yourself a trip to the beauty salon.
Lamination is ideal for you if you tend to struggle with thin, sparse or unruly hair. A brow lift fills in the gaps, adds volume, and creates an even, symmetrical eyebrow shape that can transform your entire look. Another great benefit of eyebrow lamination is that it's completely customizable. Depending on how much you want your eyebrows brushed and shaped - you can easily achieve anything from subtle to dramatic.
Overall, eyebrow lamination is a fantastic way to bring out the full potential of your natural brows without the use of invasive procedures and without it lasting too long.
Eyebrow lamination compared to microblading.
Besides lamination with keratin, one of the most popular techniques in recent years is microblading. Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that creates the illusion of denser and fuller eyebrows. You will have numerous hairs tattooed on your eyebrows. However, while microblading is very popular, it also comes with some disadvantages. We have summarized three disadvantages for you:
- Microblading is painful: Microblading can be painful and require a local anesthetic. In addition, it may take a few days for the redness and swelling to subside after the treatment.
- Allergic reactions may occur: Microblading is just like any normal tattoo - there is always a risk of infection or allergic reactions.
- A professional must be at work: Microblading requires a professional and experienced cosmetologist, as poorly executed microblading can result in uneven and unnatural eyebrows.
- Lasts up to two years: While the results of microblading can last up to two years, the results of eyebrow lamination typically last six to eight weeks. However, this is definitely an advantage because it allows you to change your look regularly and experiment with different styles. Also, if the microblading has a poor result, you will have to tattoo again or wait for the microblading to fade on its own.
In comparison, eyebrow lamination with keratin is a non-invasive, painless process with no to minimal side effects. No needles or ink are used in the lamination process. During the borwlift, the eyebrow hairs are brushed into shape and shaped by filling in and smoothing the hairs, and then fixed in place. Eyebrow lamination offers an easier and less risky way to improve the look of your eyebrows.
Who is eyebrow lamination suitable for?
Eyebrow lamination is a versatile process that is suitable for many individuals. If you struggle with thin, sparse, or wild eyebrows, eyebrow lamination is a great solution for taking control of your brows and shaping them into a beautiful, defined shape.
However, if you have very sensitive skin, you should do an allergy test before the treatment, as the serums used may cause skin irritation. It's also important to have enough eyebrow hair, as the lamination works to shape and define your existing hairs.
Overall, eyebrow lamination is a fantastic way to improve the shape and fullness of your eyebrows. It's a quick, safe, and effective way to get the most out of your natural look and give your eyebrows the wow effect you want.

What you should take care of after a brow lamination.
There are a few simple but crucial steps you should follow after a brow lamination to keep your newly laminated brows in tip-top shape.
First of all, you should avoid putting your eyebrows in contact with water for the first 24 hours after the lift. So, don't wash your face and avoid exercising as it might make you sweat. Water can affect the effectiveness of the fixative used, thus compromising the result of the lamination.
Moreover, it is advisable to avoid aggressive facial cleansing products and scrubs that might stress the eyebrow area. Refrain from using greasy face creams or facial or cleansing oils.
After the first 24 hours, you can follow your normal skincare routine. Use additional skin care products if you feel that your eyebrows appear brittle. A normal conditioner can also help in this case.
As with any cosmetic treatment, it is important to be thorough about it. Everyone has different needs, so it's crucial to choose a treatment that suits you.
