This treatment adds colour to your eyelashes and/or your eyebrows. The hairs can only be made darker, not lighter with this treatment.
For an eyelash tint the eyelashes are cleansed and petroleum jelly applied around the eye area to protect the skin and to prevent any staining. The tint is carefully applied to the lashes and left on for several minutes until the colour has taken. The tint is removed and you are able to wear make-up as required. The same process is carried out for an eyebrow tint.
A skin test is required at least 24/48 hours prior to having treatment to the eye area. This is very important to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to the product. Without the skin test, the treatment cannot take place. The skin test involves a small amount of tint being applied to the area either behind your ear or on the inside of your elbow.
The test may need to be repeated if you have not had an eyelash or eyebrow tint for a period of six months plus or if your health has changed.
