Brows frame the face and can have a profound effect on one’s overall appearance, so a brow treatment can be a game-changer for your aesthetic and routine. That’s why at The Refinery Medspa & Wellness, we’ve adopted and refined a range of brow treatments to best serve the Indian Harbour Beach and West Melbourne community. Let’s answer some important questions, like how long this treatment lasts!
The results of our brow tinting service typically last for several weeks. The exact duration depends on factors such as your skin type, hair growth cycle, and aftercare routine. Additionally, external factors like sun exposure, skincare products used, and daily activities can also impact longevity.

Tips to Prolong Your Brow Treatment Results
Keep Your Brows Dry
After getting your brows tinted, it’s crucial to keep them dry for a minimum of 12 hours: and, in fact, waiting even longer may ensure even better adhesion of the color to the eyebrow hairs. If it’s feasible for you, extending this dry period up to 24 hours or more can be your best bet.
You can maintain facial cleanliness by using a toner on a cotton pad and just carefully avoiding the brow area. This allows the tint to set properly, ensuring that the effects last longer.
Shield Your Brows from the Sun
Sun exposure can cause the tint in your eyebrows to fade faster. For optimal results, it’s wise to stay out of direct sunlight, especially during the initial days after a treatment. If you’re heading outside, always wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and slather on sunscreen. Additionally, avoid chlorinated pools, as the chemicals can adversely affect your tint.
Hydrating the brows helps in retaining the tint’s vibrancy. Use a lightweight serum that’s rich in hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 can be perfect for newly tinted brows: ask us about the options we can recommend.
Apart from keeping the color intact, a good serum gives brows a smooth and glossy appearance. A daily application will ensure your brows remain moisturized and ready for any makeup application.
Limit Exfoliation and Harsh Products
While exfoliation is essential for skin health, it’s best to avoid it, especially around the brows, for the first few days post-treatment. Exfoliating can hasten the fading of your tint. Also, steer clear of harsh skincare products that might affect the tint’s longevity, including anything with acids and makeup removers.
Exercise Gentle Brow Maintenance
While it might be tempting to regularly brush your freshly tinted brows, overdoing it can lift the tint. To maintain the desired shape, brush them lightly and use an eyebrow gel to set them. Once the tint begins to fade, a touch-up using beauty products like brow pencils or tinted gels can help maintain the look until your next appointment.
The Science Behind Brow Tinting
Brow tinting works by depositing pigment on the brow hairs, enhancing natural color, and filling in any sparse areas, resulting in a fuller, more defined look. The type of dye used, combined with the individual’s skin type and brow hair type, can impact the length of time the tint lasts.
Every hair on our body, including eyebrow hairs, goes through a growth cycle that includes phases of growth, rest, and shedding. The average eyebrow hair’s life cycle is around four months, so as these hairs naturally fall out and are replaced by new ones, the tinted hairs are gradually replaced, which in turn affects the longevity of the treatment.
Types of Dyes Used
At The Refinery, we prioritize using high-quality dyes that are both safe and effective. There are generally two types of dyes used for brow tinting: vegetable-based dyes and semi-permanent dyes.
Vegetable-based dyes are typically gentler, making them suitable for those with sensitive skin. However, they might not last as long as their semi-permanent counterparts. Semi-permanent dyes, on the other hand, can provide a more long-lasting result but might be more reactive for individuals with ultra-sensitive skin. Talk to us about the best choices for your needs.
Customizing Brow Treatments
Every individual is unique, and at The Refinery, we believe in tailoring treatments to individual needs. Factors we will consider include:
Oily skin can cause brow tints to fade faster than dry or combination skin types. By understanding the type of skin you have, we can better help you choose the best solutions.
Hair Texture and Color
Coarser brow hairs may retain color better than fine hairs. Likewise, darker brow hairs may show less dramatic results than lighter hairs, but they also might retain their tint for longer.
Some clients prefer a subtle enhancement, while others seek a bold look. By adjusting the time the tint is left on, we can achieve a range of results from natural to dramatic, perfectly in keeping with the aesthetic you want to achieve for yourself!
Waxing and Brow Treatments
Waxing the eyebrow area is an integral part of many brow treatments, as it can help us shape and refine the brows to get you the look you really want. When performed correctly, eyebrow waxing can transform the face, offering symmetry and enhancing the eyes’ natural beauty. Waxing can create a crisp, clean brow line. The wax can grip even the tiniest of hairs, ensuring a well-defined and neat finish.
And, compared to other hair removal methods, waxing can give longer-lasting results. Pulling hair from the root ensures slower regrowth, leading to smoother skin for a more extended period. And while any hair removal method has the potential to cause a little minor skin irritation, when done correctly, waxing usually results in less redness and discomfort than other methods, especially when you’re using high-quality waxes designed for sensitive skin.
How Long Does Waxing Last?
On average, the results of eyebrow waxing can last between 3 to 6 weeks, depending on your individual hair growth rates. And, just like with brow tinting, the results of waxing can be prolonged and improved with the right aftercare.
It’s essential to shield the waxed area from direct sunlight for at least 48 hours post-treatment, and the waxed area should be kept clean, but without using any harsh exfoliants or strong products immediately after waxing. Stick to gentle cleansers and moisturizers.
