How Long Does Eyebrow or Eyelash Tinting Last?

Eyelash and eyebrow tinting works much like semi-permanent hair coloring does, in that only the existing lash or brow hairs are dyed. The hairs grow and fall out, and the natural tint slowly fades over time.

Tinting typically lasts for four to six weeks. When the color starts to fade, you simply schedule a follow-up treatment to keep your brows and lashes dark and lush. Your color will last longer if you avoid the use of oil-based facial cleansers, wipes and moisturizers around the eye area, as these products can dissolve the tint much faster.

You can continue to use mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow and eyebrow pencils without a problem — although don’t be surprised if you find you don’t need them any longer!

Eyebrow and Eyelash Tinting Is Safe When Performed by a Professional

Some patients express concern about potential side effects or complications of tinting lashes and brows. When done by a professional aesthetician, however, eyelash and eyebrow tinting is safe. Comprehensive training and extensive experience ensures that the tints are precisely and safely applied.

Getting tinting done at a professional spa treatment facility also guarantees that the best and safest vegetable-based dyes are used. New, single-use applicators and individual containers of tint add an additional layer of safety to the treatment.

We strongly recommend that our patients do not try a home kit, however. Incorrect application or using the wrong tinting product can be dangerous and potentially cause permanent damage to your eyes. Finally, never apply regular hair color or dye to your lashes or brows.
