Eyebrow Tinting Med Spa | Barrington, IL

Eyebrow Tinting Med Spa | Barrington, IL

Tinting the eyebrows can significantly improve your appearance whether you have altered your hair color recently or just want to make some dramatic changes to your look.

But it is not a good idea to simply slap on some dye on the eyebrows as they are located conspicuously on your face. You should choose a qualified med spa with expertise in procedures such as eyebrow tinting.

Tinting the eyebrows involve dying the brow hairs. It does not involve any type of hair removal. However, it can definitely be done in combination with waxing, threading, or tweezing. The process of eyebrow tinting involves applying a dye to the eyebrows and letting it remain for approximately 10 minutes (in case of a vegetable dye).

But what does the brow tint do? It offers the brow hairs shine and evens out the color creating a smoother appearance. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides eyebrow tinting to individuals in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Suggestions for Brow Tinting

If you are considering a change in your brow color, the following suggestions may help:

Finishing Touches to a New Hair Color

In case you are considering a major change in your hair color and decide to go a few shades darker or lighter or go for an entirely different hue, your natural eyebrow color may not match well with the new hair color. An eyebrow tinting specialist at the med spa will explain that if they are coloring a client’s hair, they usually lighten their brows to an extent as well.

If the expert undertakes a single-process root touch-up, they typically tint the eyebrows with a shade that is one to one-and-a-half hues deeper that the new hair color. This has the benefit of accentuating both the skin tone and eye color.

Do Not Try to Aim for an Exact Match

Going too “matchy-matchy” may not be a good idea. While it does make sense to match the eyebrow color to your hair color, it may not be the most appropriate option. It may be more aesthetically appealing to have a subtle difference between both the shades.

According to tinting experts, you should never use the same hue on the brows as well as the hair. The completely matched look is not necessarily flattering.

Rather, when it comes to deeper shades, she uses the same shade on the eyebrows as she does on hair but also uses 10-volume peroxide on the brows for a contrasting effect. As far as lighter shades are concerned, she uses an oil lightener on the eyebrows for one minute to lighten their appearance.

Leave it to a Pro

While it can be tempting to purchase a boxed hair color at a pharmacy to tint your own eyebrows, but letting a professional med spa colorist work on your eyebrows is ideal. A pro not only has more control over the color in comparison to a box dye, but the application will also be safer in their expert hands.

Specialists recommend that this procedure should only be undertaken as a med spa service due to its proximity to the eyes. Motykie Medical Spa serves people from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for eyebrow tinting.

Eyebrow Waxing Med Spa

Eyebrow waxing can quickly and gently define the eyebrow shape for long-lasting results. A majority of beauty salons offer this treatment on the basis of a pre-booked appointment.

Brow bars also offer eyebrow waxing for “walk-in” clients. But it is advisable to choose a qualified med spa for eyebrow waxing, which follows the best cosmetic and medical practices to ensure safe and desirable outcomes for every individual.

The advantage of eyebrow waxing is that it will only take a few minutes to have the eyebrows waxed and the re-growth of the brows will occur only after many weeks. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides eyebrow waxing to individuals in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations across the horizon.

What to Expect

If the eyebrows are groomed well, they frame the face and highlight facial features dramatically. It is advisable to allow a professional to create the brow shape, even if you subsequently maintain this shape at home. Prior to the shaping appointment, you need to grow out your eyebrows until bearable to enable their natural form to become apparent.

The med spa treatment provider removes dark as well as lighter fuzzy hair in one instance through the use of small strips and hot wax which they apply using a narrow spatula or a roller ball applicator.

The provider will make sure that the eyebrows are in symmetry and will place an imaginary line from the nose’s end to the outer and inner edge of the eyes for guidance.

Primarily, hair is eliminated from beneath and in-between the brows. The beautician may also trim the brows from the top to develop a sharper definition. The provider will apply a soothing gel at the end of the treatment to cool and address any redness. They will offer you a mirror to evaluate the outcomes.

In case you require modifications, you can certainly ask the beautician to shorten the length or the brow or make the arch shaper. However, it is important not to get carried away and end up with a permanently surprised appearance due to misshapen brows. A well-trained expert will guide you against this and the hair typically re-grows after a while anyway.

Suggestions for Eyebrow Waxing

Some tips that can make the eyebrow waxing more effective are as follows:

  • Ensure that your skin is clean and do not use lotions, moisturizers, and makeup before your eyebrow waxing appointment. If the specialist gets a clean canvas, they will be able to shape your brows more effectively.
  • Do not undergo tanning pre and post your eyebrow shaping service. Waxing leads to skin exfoliation which increases the chances of sunburns and may make the treatment more painful.
  • In case you are using any skin medications, do inform the eyebrow shaping treatment provider. Some medications such as Differin, Retin-A or Accutane may lead to skin irritation if the skin undergoes waxing. You should ideally consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Do not tweeze before the eyebrow wax treatment as you may end up overdoing it. It is best to let an expert give your eyebrows the beautiful shape that you desire.

Eco-Certified Ingredients


The FDA approved Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as a color for cosmetic products in the 1970s. It is the active ingredient used most commonly in sunless tanners including self-tanners, moisturizers, and spray tan solutions.

A carbohydrate (monosaccharide sugar) compound, DHA has received FDA approval for sunless tanning solutions that are applied externally. It is often extracted from a vegetable source such as sugar cane or beets. The DHA ingredients in VersaSpa are Eco-Certified. DHA has received FDA-approval for external use on the skin.


Active ingredient Erythrulose is commonly used in tanning products in combination with DHA. The full results of Erythrulose take longer to establish allowing the tan to sustain for a longer duration. Eco-Certified Erythrulose is used to formulate VersaSpa sunless products.

Dimethyl Isosorbide (DMI)

DMI is a solvent with high purity as well as a carrier. It provides an efficient delivery enhancement system for active ingredients in products for personal care. In sunless tanning products, DMI enhances the outcomes of the sunless tan. VersaSpa sunless products contain DMI.

Suggestions for a Smooth Finish

An irregular finish and streaks can be prevented through the use of these simple tips for self-tanning as well as in-salon spray tans.

  • Shave or wax a minimum of 12 hours before the tanning process.
  • Exfoliate the skin to eliminate dead skin for more even results from the tanning.
  • Do not use lotion prior to tanning as lotions can act as a skin barrier leading to streaks.
  • People who are self-tanning can use the VersaSpa Self-Tan Applicator Mitt for a convenient, even, and mess-free application.
  • Do apply behind the thighs.
  • If using a spray-tanning system in a salon with an automated spray tan booth, use Perfector to balance the pH levels of the skin for a darker, deeper, and more natural tan that will develop quickly.
