How long will microblading last?
Truth be told this is a hard question to answer, as we’re all unique and different and no two skin complexion’s are the same. 🙂
On average most clients get 18 + months out of their brows however some will need to come for a touch up to keep the hair strokes looking fresh and to avoid the hassle of penciling them in every morning.
Of course, it will depend on your immune system, your skin type, general health and resistance to pigment. These are all critical components to how long your eyebrows last but knowing these few things will definitely help them last longer!
Sun is the #1 reason that pigment fades faster. When you’re outside, make sure you always apply sunscreen. Sunscreen will not only help pigment to last longer but also will prevent wrinkles. 🙂
The second reason our brows will fade quickly is anti aging skin care creams. Retinol, Vitamin A, AHA or Glycolic Acid can cause eyebrows to fade significantly faster, sometimes even overnight! Even if you avoid the eyebrow area, creams tend to travel and can affect eyebrow area. This is one reason I recommend applying coconut oil on your eyebrows, before you use any other skin care product. If you’re a big exfoliator, which causes skin cells to turn over more quickly, this will make them fade faster.
Certain medications are linked to faster fading- i.e. thyroid medication. This can metabolize the pigment a little faster than normal.
Color of your eyebrows will affect the longevity of the pigment as well. The general Color Retention guideline is:
Blondes and light taupes shades need refreshed every 10 to 12 months.
Mid-tone browns may need a yearly touch-up
Brown and dark browns need a touch-up every 12 to 24 months.
The best thing I love about microblading is knowing I can have natural looking eyebrows without spending so much of my mornings and money penciling them in. It’s definitely an investment once a year but totally worth it to look and feel great. We can even sweat and swim with them. 🙂
