Will My Permanent Eyebrow Makeup Results Fade Over Time?

By July 6, 2023No Comments

Permanent makeup refers to a variety of techniques, some of which use a tattoo-like process to inject pigment into the skin for long-lasting results. At Soha Spa and Wellness in Gaithersburg, MD, our team offers clients a variety of long-term permanent eyebrow techniques to get the perfect brows without the daily effort. Keep reading to find out how long the results of these techniques last and if any permanent makeup is truly “permanent.”

How does permanent eyebrow makeup work?

At Soha Spa and Wellness, our team offers three methods of permanent eyebrow makeup application for clients who want long-lasting eyebrows:

  • Microblading – This offers a bold, filled-in brow that requires each individual “hair” to be drawn on individually.
  • PowderBrows – Instead of drawing hairs, this service uses tiny dots to create a shadow that helps fill in sparse areas throughout the brow.
  • Combination Tech – A technique that combines microblading and PowderBrows for full and natural brows.

How long does permanent eyebrow makeup last?

Even tattoos don’t last forever. Permanent eyebrow makeup is actually a semi-permanent service. However, it lasts so much longer than daily makeup applications that people typically refer to it as permanent.

How long your permanent eyebrow makeup will last depends on your skin, your skincare routine, your sun exposure, and how well you follow aftercare instructions. However, ideally, your beautiful new brows can last from 10 – 14 months before needing a touch-up.

Over time, ink fades, and this is especially the case in areas that we touch or wash frequently.

In many ways, it’s preferable to have semi-permanent makeup that fades over time. Since our faces and styles change, it allows patients to make adjustments that suit them better over the years. And if you do enjoy your permanent makeup, getting it touched up every 10 – 14 months is still much simpler and cost-effective than spending time on daily makeup applications.

How is permanent eyebrow makeup applied?

When we apply your permanent eyebrow makeup, we can take custom measurements to map out the shape that looks best on you. We’ll take the structure of your face, your skin tone, and your hair color into consideration. But you’ll also be able to make the adjustments that suit your personal style.

The team at Soha Spa and Wellness only uses heavy metal-free microblading pigments from PhiBrows. So while brows may fade over time, they won’t become discolored, patchy, or smeared. The process only requires you to lie back while we apply the makeup. In just two appointments spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, you’ll walk away with brows that last a year or longer.

While you’ll be given personalized aftercare instructions, it’s helpful to plan your appointments around times when you can avoid unprotected sun exposure, pools, and beaches immediately after treatment. It’s also helpful to discontinue the use of eye makeup, topical medications, and serums or lotions on the upper eye area until your skin heals.
