Brow Tints

We perform 2 types of brow tint at Mint

Mint-Marvel Brow – a vegetable-based tint –  for which it is not mandatory to have a patch test unless you a have previous history of sensitivity. If a patch test is required for this reason this must be performed at least 48 hours prior to treatment.

Mint Brow Tint – which usually gives a stronger colour and is longer lasting. This requires a patch test if you have not had the treatment previously at any Mint salon. If you have not had a patch test with us before it must have been performed at least 24 hours prior to treatment.

 

There is always a risk that a sensitivity reaction may occur even if you have had a patch test or had the treatment previously so please note the following and inform your therapist prior to undertaking treatment:

  • If your medical condition has changed since your last treatment you should have a patch test prior to treatment.
  • If you have started taking or changed a medication since your last treatment you should have a patch test prior to treatment.
  • If you have had a tattoo since your patch test or last treatment you should have a patch test prior to treatment.

Do not undertake this treatment if any of the following apply:

  • You are pregnant (as if you do have an allergic reaction you will not be able to have medical treatment).
  • You are under 16 years of age.
  • You have any condition which may contraindicate treatment, e.g. Infectious or contagious eye or skin disease, have recently undergone eye surgery, or undergoing chemotherapy. If you are un-sure please ask your therapist.
  • You are wearing contact lenses -we recommend that they are removed prior to treatment.

 

Brow tints, lash tint and party lashes are not available to book online due to the allergy test requirement.
