A new trend that at first we were a little skeptical about but are now sold on is brow lamination. Brow lamination is essentially a brow hair lift. This service redirects the direction of brow hairs, giving the appearance of fuller and fluffier eyebrows. This look is achieved by using a treatment serum that lasts 4-8 weeks and eliminates the time and hassle of filling them in every single day. After receiving a brow lamination and tint, your brows will be left looking thicker, straighter, fuller and you will be selfie-ready at a moment’s notice. There is little downtime with this service, however you do need to avoid getting the brows wet for 24 hours. If you are someone who religiously waxed and tweezed their eyebrows since your teenage years, this treatment will give life to your thin, sparse eyebrows. If you aren’t ready to take the plunge to receive a more permanent treatment such as microblading but want to make your morning routine a bit easier by not having to fill your brows in daily, then this is the perfect starter treatment for you. There can be a stigma regarding over-treated brows as far as how full and fluffy they can be, but the nice thing about brow lamination is the ability to receive a less dramatic look as well. Once the brow lamination is complete, you can brush the hairs straight up to receive that fluffy, model brow look or leave them; the brows are not stuck that way, they are just more moveable. The process is quick, painless, and quite relaxing. If you do tend to have more sensitive skin, we recommend separating the waxing appointment from the brow lamination appointment because your skin can get a little irritated with a combination of waxing, the brow lamination solution, and the the tint. Afterwards, I like to maintain my brows with a little bit of oil for hydration, and a simple brow gel while doing my makeup.
Brow lamination in combination with a lash lift & tint is the perfect summer service for a makeup free look. No fake eyelashes or extensions, no eyelash curler, just your own gorgeous and natural set of eyelashes! This service is completely natural and utilizes lifting lotion and silicone rods to lift your eyelashes, making them appear longer and fuller. In general, lash lifts last 6-8 weeks, but in some cases they last even longer. At DHH Med Spa in Scottsdale, we use Ellebana Lash Lift, which is one of the most highly recommended esthetician brands for lash lift treatments. For many, mascara becomes optional after this treatment, but if you’re like us we love enhancing this service with mascara too for an even bolder look! After this treatment you will realize how long your lashes really are! Just like brow lamination, the procedure is totally painless. You will have your eyes closed for the entire treatment, so we recommend not overly caffeinating yourself prior to your appointment. This treatment does not damage your natural lashes, and you are able to receive another one 4 weeks after the initial treatment, however you probably won’t need another treatment for 6-8 weeks. After your treatment we ask that you keep your lashes dry, and free of makeup for 24 hours and avoid oil-based creams and lotions for 24 hours as well. This treatment will not be affected by pools or steam, so this is definitely a lower maintenance option when compared to lash extensions.
