Is eyebrow tinting safe during pregnancy?

We’ve compiled this list of beauty must-knows for pregnant women. It starts with eyebrow tinting, which is a customer favourite. Is it safe? What are the potential risks? 

What Is Eyebrow Tinting?

We have a short recap on what you can expect from this beauty treatment if you missed our henna eyebrow tinting article!

  • Eyebrow tinting is a semi-permanent dye combination that enhances the overall appearance of your eyebrows.
  • The tinting process can use either regular dyes or natural henna dyes, depending on what results in you are looking for. Henna eyebrow tinting creates a fuller, darker and more defined look, while regular tinting is more subtle and natural.
  • After the procedure, the dye will remain on your skin for approximately 1 to 2 weeks. The actual colour can then last up to 6 weeks. The semi-permanent colour will naturally fade over time as you wash your face, remove makeup, and exfoliate.
  • To maintain the appearance of well-groomed, clean eyebrows, eyebrow tinting can be done safely and regularly. It also helps you save time when applying eyebrow makeup and preparing for the day ahead.

Can I Tint My Eyebrows While Pregnant?

Yes! The good news is eyebrow tinting is one of the appointments. These are safe for pregnant women. Even though regular dyes can contain chemicals, only a small amount of the chemicals are absorbed into the skin. This is not enough to cause any harm to your baby and you.

It is important to consider how your body’s natural hormonal changes may impact your hair. Your hair might react differently to colouring or perming. It may absorb the colour difference if it is tinted with eyebrows. We recommend that you manage your expectations regarding the outcome in such instances. You can rest assured that your baby is safe and healthy.

Safety Tips for Eyebrow Tinting during Pregnancy

Talk to your beauty therapist.

It is always best to seek professional advice before doing any beauty treatment. That’s what we do at Lovoir Skin Body & Beauty. Our goal is to make sure you are happy with the results and keep you safe. That’s why our beauty therapists get to know each customer first. We can discuss your medical history, allergies, desired results and any other questions that you might have by booking a consultation. We can then guarantee you the safest and most effective course of action.

Before you start, do a patch test.

Additionally, we offer our customers the option to get testing. Before they tint their eyebrows, do a patch test. This will allow us to anticipate any reactions you might have to our dye formulation, and we can adjust accordingly for your safety.

Plan your treatment around your due date.

This piece of advice was based on our understanding of the stress that pregnancy can cause, particularly in the months before your due date. Your attention will be on getting your baby ready for the hospital, arranging your nursery, and making any other necessary changes. It’s important to welcome your baby into a comfortable and clean home. We’ll be happy to help you choose the right time for your brow-tinting session.

Safer Treatments During Pregnancy

We must first stress that there are no clear no’s in pregnancy treatments. The following are generally not recommended:

  • The skin may be sensitive to harsh chemicals.
  • Wraps and hot stone massages are two treatments that can significantly raise your body temperature.
  • Botox and fillers are injectables
  • Cool sculpting, sunbeds, and electrical treatments such as galvanic or infusion facials, are all options that can stimulate the skin.

Lash tinting

Lashes tints are similar to eyebrow tinting. However, they give the appearance of darker and fuller hair. Although it involves dyes, they can only be applied to your hair strands and don’t seep into your skin or eyes. This makes it safe and common even for pregnant women.

Eyelash extensions

Eyelash extensions are another safe procedure. Whether you are pregnant or not, the only thing that should concern you is finding the right salon. You are most sensitive to your eyes, so you must find someone who can apply the lash glue without causing any harm.
