Lauren shares some of her insight and expertise gained from 24 years of experience in the esthetics industry.
Q: How did you get started in the business?
A: It all started when my skin began to show signs of severe sun damage. I was told by my esthetician that the damage was permanent and would never be healed. I could not accept this opinion, which led me to my journey of discovering how to heal the skin.
I began as a medical esthetician with a well-known plastic surgeon. I learned symmetry and what is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I also learned modalities for assisting the body in healing post-operative in conjunction with lymphatic drainage.
I realized throughout my journey that implementing a holistic approach to skin and body care was the best way to achieve long-term results.
Q: What do you enjoy most about running Brow Radiance?
A: I love helping women achieve their goals of having natural looking brows. After 20+ years in the field of esthetics, I have seen firsthand how full brows are an exception not the rule for most women. Until recently, the only options were to clean around the brow to improve the shape and tinting to darken the existing hair. Most of my clients have turned to traditional tattooing, which has left them with discoloration and/or poor shaping. I love that through microblading, they can experience the desired result of fuller, natural looking brows!
Q: What sets Brow Radiance apart from others?
A: At Brow Radiance, we are leading edge when it comes to perfecting our skills. There is always something new to learn. Continuing education is a constant. We are meticulous with our work and strive to make sure every client leaves satisfied and happy with their results. Obtaining perfect brows starts with knowing where to go. Microblading is an art form not everyone is cut out to do. We recommend that customers see the artist’s work before choosing where to go. With Phiremoval (tattoo removal which does not compromise the integrity of the skin), we are trained and able to make corrections for anyone who has received less than desirable results elsewhere.
Q: What’s important for people to know about Brow Radiance?
A: Each client is unique and special; therefore, treatments are customized to fit their individual needs. We don’t just treat symptoms, we assess and treat the body as a whole.
Q: What are the advantages of shaping your eyebrows?
A: Eyebrows are the most important feature of the face. They frame the eyes and shape the face. Something as simple as cleaning (waxing) around the brow can give the appearance of a “brow lift,” offering a more youthful, brighter look.
Q: How do you determine the best brow shape for clients?
A: The shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to the golden intersection (phi 1.618) and face morphology. Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hair growth to achieve hyperrealistic looks. A Golden Mean caliper tool is used for exact geometric measurement.
Q: How often should clients schedule brow-shaping appointments?
A: Microblading is completed in two appointments. The initial appointment lasts up to two hours and involves the actual shaping of the brow. A follow-up appointment is scheduled four weeks following and will “touch up” any fading that has occurred since the first appointment. After that, yearly touch ups are recommended. Brow waxing and tinting should be scheduled every two to four weeks.
