- Cancer – The brows need some extra TLC and babying during chemo and the recovery period, which varies from client to client. It’s important not to put any extra stress on you brows. It’s best to refrain from treatment during chemotherapy, and several months after the your last treatment, as the brows are still susceptible to the effects of the drugs. Ideally, you’ll want to wait until the natural brows are less fragile. A letter from your Oncologist stating they are happy for you to receive treatment should be obtained.
- If you have cuts, abrasions, inflammation or swelling in the treatment area or who have experienced a positive reaction to the patch test then you are not suitable for treatment.
Pre Brow Lamination
Prior to treatment you are required to receive a patch test. A patch test must be carried out at least 24-48 hours prior to treatment date.
The result from the test will be either positive or negative.
A positive result will be recognised by irritation, swelling or inflammation of the skin. If this occurs, please inform your technician and you must not proceed with the treatment.
A negative result produces no skin reaction and you can proceed with the treatment.
Please ensure you arrive to your appointment makeup free and if you wear contact lenses they have been removed (remember to bring your glasses).
Brows cannot get wet for at least 24-48hrs post treatment, nor can makeup be worn. So ensure you don’t have any events immediately following your treatment.
This aftercare advice is given to ensure you fully understands what should and should not be done 24-28 hours post treatment for longevity of the brow lamination treatment results

- Avoid swimming/sauna for 24 hours
- Keep brows dry for 24 hours
- Use a brow conditioner daily, this is to be combed through with a mascara wand in the direction of the hair growth.
- Avoid the temptation to over touch the brow area after treatment. Touching can add oils to the area (from fingers/hands) and could clog the open pores, resulting in spots
- Do not allow prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat; the use of sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms and swimming pools
- Tweezing in between appointments is to be avoided to maintain the best long term-shape
- Do not apply Retinol, AHA or exfoliate around the brow area for three days either side of the treatment
- No self-tanning products should be used on the face for 48 hours either side of treatment
- Tinting results will be darker and more defined immediately after your treatment and oil-based makeup remover can cause the tint to fade faster.
