BROW LAMINATION AND TINT VS PMU?

Updated: Jan 9, 2023

Ever wish an expert told you what to do before spending money on a service that did not fulfill your expectations and worse yet was painful, costly and even permanent.




Brows are so important because they frame your face! Most women at some point, usually after 30, start to loose eyebrow hairs at a very slow rate, by the time they reach there 50's they have about 50 percent less hair than when they were in their 20's. This is due to a combination of genetics, aging and excessive brow hair removal. There is no all-in-one solution to this problem because it's multifaceted and tricky. So the best approach is to determine which stage your in and or have a professional brow specialist before deciding which service is right for you.


Below I narrow down the consultation so that you have the knowledge of what stage you fall under so you can make a better decision.


I will divide professional eyebrow services for brow hair loss into three categories:


Stage 1

Subtle loss of brow hair is when you loose less than 25 percent of the hair on your brows, it is very common with almost everyone over 30. You notice that your brow hair is not as full but you can easily fix this in a few seconds with a little brow makeup and besides no one really notices. You wish your brows were thicker but you can live with putting a little brow makeup for that special evening or event.


SOLUTION 1

Wear makeup daily and use growth serum.

Pro- Very simple and effective.

Con- Its temporary and a little costly if you add up the cost of the serums and makeup year after year. ($35-100) monthly


SOLUTION 2

Tint your brows every month. DIY or by a brow expert

Pro- It last for about a month so you have to maintain them which time is money.

Con- It takes planning and costs money month after month similar to your hair. ($5-30) monthly.


Stage 2

Moderate brow hair loss is when you have lost up to 50 percent of your brow hairs, this can be quite significant in people that were not born with a lot of brow hair. This is the stage when you really notice it or you start to become very dependent on brow makeup to fill in the gaps. It's the stage that most start to consider PMU/microblading.


SOLUTION 1

Brow lamination and tint

Pro- Makes your brows look thicker and groomed for up to 8 weeks.

Con- It takes money and time month after month. ($80-100)


SOLUTION 2

Brow make up and growth serum

Pro- Can make a big difference if you have brow guru abilities in applying makeup and a very steady hand.

Con- Its time-consuming and not every one is artistic and has the patience to draw them in on a daily basis. It can be tricky to pick the right product. ($5-50)


SOLUTION 3

Microblading/PMU

Pro- If done well is a game changer! You wake up everyday with great brows.

Pro- Saves you time and energy which is priceless.

Con- Its can hurt if you have low pain tolerance and takes weeks to heal.

Con- Its Pricey compared to makeup, permanent so if you don't like it your stuck with it. That can be scary! ($400-600)

Con- The color fades, so you have to get touch ups to maintain the look every year or so which for some people can be difficult. ($100-175)


Stage 3

Often times stage 3 is when you have lost between 50 to 100 percent of your brows which means you might only have a line or bald spots throughout the majority of your brows or no brows in extreme cases. This can be hard because you have tried many products on the market including growth serums without much success.


SOLUTION 1

Brow Make up daily

Pro- Can temporarily look much better.

Con- Rubs off like lipstick throughout the day if you sweat or get oil or water on your brows. God forbid someone sees you with one eyebrow. (humor.)

Con- Time consuming and if your not a brow makeup guru they can look add. ($5-50)


SOLUTION 2

Microblading/PMU
