How Long Will My Permanent Makeup Eyebrows Last?
Oftentimes, women get tired of filling in their eyebrows, yet at the same time they get a bit anxious about the idea of not having to fill them in from having them tattooed. There is a lot of information online regarding the question of how long permanent makeup eyebrows will last, but here are the main topics to keep in mind if you are considering having your eyebrows tattooed.
Skin type. Your skin type has a huge impact on your permanent makeup eyebrows and how long they will last. In fact, if you have really oily skin for example, microblading may not be a good option for you, but a powder brow done with a tattoo machine would be a good option. Your results will often fade very quickly; thus, not giving you the biggest bang for your buck. Be sure to have an open discussion with your artist so they can lead you in the right direction regarding the best modality for your skin.
Sun exposure. How often are you in the sun? Are you in a climate that is warm and sunny all year round? Do you wear sunscreen on your face? Do you lay out in the sun or spend time in a tanning bed? Excessive sun exposure can make your eyebrows fade faster resulting in touch up sessions more regularly.
Skincare products. The products you use on your face can definitely impact the longevity of your eyebrows. The daily products you use on your face can definitely impact the longevity of your eyebrows. If you use products that have a lot of active ingredients in them, such as lightening agents to reverse sun damage or aging skin, your permanent makeup can fade faster. In addition, if you have facial peels it can break down the pigment in your tattooed eyebrows.
Permanent makeup results will vary for everybody. There is no way to guarantee what your eyebrows will look like in 6 months, 1 year, or 5 years for that matter. There is a lot of information online that indicates your permanent makeup will just fade out in 1-3 years, but don’t be fooled by these generalized statements, as there is no way to know for sure.
Touch up appointments are to be expected, but knowing the indicators that can directly impact how long your permanent makeup will last can help guide you in determining if PMU is right for you.
