Microblading and Cosmetic Tattooing is typically a 3-step building process.
- All procedures need to be completed within 6-months of original application for it to be considered a complete process 'before' any more procedures can be applied.
- Any maintenance procedures must be performed within 2-years of last visit.
- The pigment can remain in the skin for a number of years but, the colors will breakdown and fade within time.
Another factor to consider is that its longevity will depend on how well you take care of the procedural area while it is healing. Using a total sunblock after the procedure areas has completely healed will increase the life of your tattoo. The darker the pigment color, such as with black or dark brown, the longer it will remain unchanged in your skin. However, more natural, delicate colors are sometimes vulnerable to the effects of the sun and swimming and breakdown of the body.
As a general rule, eyeliner and lip color have the longest longevity. We recommend yearly color touchup refreshers.
