Growing Lashes and Brows Naturally

Does coconut oil help eyebrows grow?

growing lashes naturally

Coconut oil is an emollient. It is not going to stimulate or accelerate hair growth, but it will aid in keeping the hair conditioned. This in turn will help keep that hair intact for longer periods of time. As a result, it will extend the life of that strand by preventing breakage prematurely.

Does Vaseline help your eyelashes grow?

growing lashes naturally myths

Vaseline does not have any active ingredients in it; It is strictly a barrier. It does not have any vitamins, minerals, or other hydrating properties. Vaseline is an occluse substance, therefore, it is not good for use in the eyelash area.

This is because the follicles in the lash area are are very fine and vaseline can quickly congest those follicles. This can cause styes and other sebaceous irritations. The pores need to be able to excrete. Applying an occluse substance will block the pores’ ability to breathe sort of speak.

How can I make my eyebrows and eyelashes thicker naturally?

There are a few things you can do at home for growing your lashes naturally.

To begin, removing your makeup properly is very important when growing the lashes naturally. Make sure that your lashes are properly cleansed down to the base.

Remember, the more obstruction you have along that area, the harder it will be for that hair to grow to its fullest potential. Avoid using very drying agents around the eyes. For example, some makeup removers can be very drying which is going to make the lashes a lot more brittle.

Try to avoid astringent or alcohol-based makeup remover on the eyes. Use conditioning serums that will feed your lashes with proper ingredients. Castor oil is a common ingredient in brow and eyelash conditioners. It is known to help promote length and volume in the eyebrows and lashes.

Appearing longer with spa services

Lash lifts go a long way in helping the lashes appear longer for those with shorter or straight lashes. The lash lift creates a natural-looking curl thereby giving the illusion of longer lashes. Lash lifts typically last about 6-8 weeks. Another spa service that gives the illusion of longer lashes is a lash tint. These are great for people with light-coloured lashes.

Mens Waxing YEG

Traditionally, men’s waxing involves the use of warm wax, typically honey or pine resin-based, and cloth strips.

Preparing for your appointment

Located in YEG, Dérmica offers Mens waxing. We are here to help you prepare for your appointment, as well as provide some facts about our waxing service.

mens waxing yeg

What can I expect?

The esthetician first preps the area by disinfecting and applying a protective barrier to the skin. The warm wax is then applied using a wooden spatula and covered with a cloth strip; this is referred to as strip waxing or soft waxing. The strip is then quickly pulled off parallel to the skin and voila your skin is left smooth and hair free!

Prior to booking a wax service ensure your hair is at least ¼ inch long, and has not been sunburned, treated with AHA/BHA, or prescription acne medications. Avoid caffeine for a couple hours before your appointment to reduce sensitivity. Results are visible for about 2 weeks, with 4-6 weeks before you are ready for your next visit. After care for waxing includes: avoiding heat, sun exposure, strong/fragranced, lotions, and washes for 24 hours and frequent skin exfoliation.

Mens waxing facts

  • Results last longer than shaving
  • Hair grows back thinner and less-apparent each time you wax
  • Shows details of chest and back musculature
  • Helps with body odour by removing sweat-producing hair
  • Removes dead skin cells making your skin feel smooth

TIPS for Ingrown hairs

For irritating razor burn and ingrown hairs we recommend picking up some “Bump Stopper”. This solution can be found in the ethnic hair care section at most drug store/supermarkets. You can also try Glo Skin Beauty’s Purifying Gel Cleanser, a great foaming wash with powerful acne-fighting ingredients that stimulate exfoliation and clears pores.

Long term hair removal

For a permanent solution, opt for IPL/Laser hair removal treatments. These advanced treatments should only be performed by trained and certified technicians, so do your research before going for the bargain service. Shaving is the necessary for most IPL/Laser treatments, so it’s best to have it shaved down prior to appointment.

The tech will begin by disinfecting your skin. Next, she will provide you with your protective eyewear before she goes zapping away. For the following 24-48 hours you will be required to avoid direct heat, perspiration, sun exposure, strong/fragranced soaps, lotions and washes.

Like waxing, ensure skin has not been sunburned, treated with AHA/BHA, or medications/vitamins affecting the skin. Typically you will notice a stunt in the growth of hair, followed by what seems to be continued growth. Four to six weeks after, the hair will begin to fall out. At this point you are ready for your next session. Most men require 6-8 treatments to see maximum results, but of course some machines are built better than others, so results may vary.

These treatments are somewhat of an investment and cause injury to your skin if not delivered properly, so do your research and make sure operational requirements are met by both the business and technician.

Stay Sharp Gentlemen!

Brow Lamination Old Strathcona

Located in Old Strathcona in Edmonton, Dérmica offers brow lamination amongst other brow services in our vast spa menu.

Check out before and after pics of the brow service that gives you that “fluffy” look for full, thicker brows.

Before and After Gallery

How does it work?

Eyebrow lamination involves securing the hair in an upward stroke pattern, then setting them into place with a gentle brow perming solution. This simple procedure is generally done in 1 hour and lasts 4-6 weeks.

Does eyebrow lamination cause damage?

Frequent perming of the brows can cause damage to your brows. We recommend waiting 6 weeks between appointments. Exposure to some perm solutions can also cause reactions to sensitive skin such as itching, redness, etc. Certain conditions or medications compromise the skin. In other words, while the perm solution may be safe, other steps in the lamination process make the service unsafe for some clients.

If you are new to Dérmica, your service provider will conduct a consultation through the use of an intake form. If you are a returning guest, please advise your service provider of any changes to your health or medications. This will help us ensure your service goes smoothly.

Edmonton’s Brow Lamination Destination

edmonton brow lamination

Located on Whyte avenue in Edmonton, we offer brow lamination services in our full spa menu.

What does eyebrow lamination do?

To better understand this, think of the typical brow hair pattern. It grows upward at the beginning of the eyebrow, but then starts turning downward as we get closer to the arch. Once past the arch, the hair grows downward.

During your service, we achieve this by chemically straightening the brow hair and then neutralizing it in it’s new position.

How long does brow lamination last?

Depending on a few factors, your service could last up to 6 weeks. One factor to consider when estimating the life of your lamination is your brow hair density. Thicker brows are more likely to “fall” sooner. To clarify, by “falling” we mean the hair looses its new shape and returns to the original shape.

brow gel for great brows

In addition, oily skin types may find the oil from their skin may cause the lamination to fall sooner. But don’t let this deter you from getting this service if you meet those two factors! The post-care instructions are simple to follow and should keep your lamination going strong all month long.

Plus, brow gel can help those thick and stubborn brows reach the full 6 weeks and possibly beyond.

Do brows go back to normal after brow lamination?

Yes, your brows will go back to normal. This is the main reason we don’t trim your brows during the lamination service. Instead of trimming, we teach you how to style your brows. That way, your brows won’t be awkwardly short when they fall.
