About Brow Waxing And Shaping
Some people are gifted with beautiful eyebrows and know exactly how to groom them, but most of us are better off leaving it to the experts. Just like an interior decorator can give you a brand new perspective on your living room, an eyebrow specialist can transform the way you see your facial features. A single hair can change the entire shape of the brow, which in turn, changes the shape of your face. At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, we provide waxing treatments to help shape the eyebrows, which contours the face and enhances the eyes. Our expert staff can precisely remove pesky eyebrow hairs for a more defined shape. If you want to avoid having to constantly pluck or accidentally overplucking your eyebrows, please let us help you attain your cosmetic goals so all you have to do sit back, relax, and let us do the work!
What are the benefits of eyebrow shaping?

Eyebrow shaping is not ideal for candidates who take specific acne medicines, such as Retin-A, Tetracycline, or Accutane.

What to Expect
Our skilled aestheticians will complete a comprehensive assessment of your eyebrows before removing any hair. To understand your desired outcome, we will listen to your cosmetic goals. Usually, our male clients prefer a more masculine shape that cleans up excess or stray hairs on the bottom brows or in between the brows. Women generally want a thinner and shapelier arch to their brows.
After we have discussed your desired eyebrow shape, one of our team members will brush the brow hairs upwards so we can see any extra or long hairs that require trimming. To start, we will clean your brows and place the wax on the designated regions. The wax is applied in small amounts so we can carefully and quickly remove the unwanted hair. Once we remove the wax, our aesthetician will clean the skin and apply a soothing lotion to reduce irritation.
At JEM Medspa, our group uses a gentle wax that works well for most skin types. After your appointment, you may experience some redness near the eyebrow. This side effect is very normal, and it should go away in a few minutes after your appointment. Depending on how fast your brow hairs grow, we suggest scheduling your follow-up sessions every 3 – 6 weeks.
In between appointments, you can remove stray hairs yourself with a pair of slanted tweezers. To avoid any mistakes when plucking your eyebrow, we recommend only tweezing from underneath. It's easier to make mistakes on the tops of your brows. Additionally, just take out what comes in and try to not pluck close to the shape, which may accidentally change the arch. If you ever question whether a hair should come out, the answer is always no. Our aestheticians can help you accurately remove your brow hair.
Eyebrow Shaping FAQ
How long does eyebrow shaping usually last?
It depends on how quickly your eyebrows grow, but most people can expect the results of their eyebrow shaping to last about 3 – 6 weeks.
Does eyebrow shaping hurt?
While eyebrow shaping can cause a few split seconds of discomfort, most patients don’t find it painful. At JEM Medspa, we use a gentle wax that works better for most skin types. After your procedure is finished, your aesthetic team member will apply a soothing lotion to reduce any irritation. Some patients may experience slight redness or irritation afterward, but this typically goes away quickly.
Is eyebrow shaping for men and women?
Yes, it is. Our skilled aestheticians can choose a more masculine or feminine look according to your wants. For a masculine look, this typically means simply cleaning, defining, and trimming the eyebrows. For a feminine look, a finer, more arched look is typically created.
How long does eyebrow shaping take?
It depends on your goals (and your eyebrows), but most procedures can be finished in about 30 minutes or less.
