How long does Permanent Makeup last?

1st Aug, 2017

Probably one of the most frequently asked questions, and understandably so.

I can never predict how long your Permanent Makeup will last before you need a colour boost.

In a previous blog I spoke about how our skin is an unbalanced medium and the longevity of your permanent makeup depends on how long the pigment is retained on the skin.

Each time I create a hair stroke, a channel is made for the pigment to sit within. This produces oil and lymph and the level of this produced will depend on your skin type. In turn the amount produced will affect the how your brows heal and by this I mean how much they flake or crust. I hate using those words, but this is what happens.

So in essence your skin type and retention of pigment will affect how well the skin retains this pigment, how your skin heals and therefore how long your colour will last.

Other factors…

…including exposure to sun (yes including sun beds), getting your brows wet, use of anti-ageing products and chlorine etc will have a huge impact on the longevity of your permanent makeup.

I have developed my aftercare package deliberately to contain as much information as possible. It is essential they you adhere to this. Taking good care of your brows post treatment will have a huge impact on your healing process.

Your re-evaluation…

…with me enables me to determine how the healing process is going. I can review if additional strokes are required, if the shape is perfect and assess any colour change.

Remember your brows are designed to soften, so it’s important not to panic if you notice they fade slightly.
