No more lining, brushing and filling eyebrows for you. This permanent makeup has garnered lots of attention, mostly due to the celebrities suddenly rocking amazing eyebrows. Naturally, people are curious and have lots of questions.

One of the biggest and most frequent questions asked is, how long does microblading last? We are answering that question and a lot of others in this guide:

What is Microblading

First and foremost, you need to understand how microblading works so you are 100% confident when you go for the procedure. The easiest way to understand microblading is to think of semi-permanent eyebrow tattoos. The artist injects skin-safe ink into your eyebrows, in the same way, color, and direction your natural eyebrow hair would have been. As a result, your eyebrows look naturally dark and fuller. This is possible because of the device used for microblading, this handheld device has a blade with fine micro needles at its end. In addition to giving you fuller eyebrows, microblading also gives them a definite shape.

The ink is introduced only to the uppermost layer of the skin, combined with the fact that the area is numbed, the entire procedure is pain-free. This procedure is also an excellent option for people who have perfectly nice eyebrows but with little gaps in them. While microblading is called permanent makeup, it is semi-permanent and lasts longer than any other eyebrow treatments that have been introduced so far.

Benefits of Microblading

Why should you go for microblading instead of any other procedure to get fuller eyebrows? We have more than one reason to make your team microblading. Here are some of the top perks of the procedure:

  1. In microblading, the makeup artists use ink that ends up breaking down and fading over time. This gives you flexibility and saves you from ending up with the same kind of eyebrows all your life. As we all know, eyebrow trends fluctuate on the opposite spectrum. Once upon a time, people would make their eyebrows as thin as possible, remember?
  2.  If you feel like getting a different look, you can go to one of the touch-up sessions and ask for it. It is as simple as that.
  3. In case you end up going to an inexperienced and unprofessional artist, your eyebrows might not exactly look like the way you expected. Thankfully, you can let your eyebrows return to their natural state before you try microblading once again, but from a professional and much more reputed artist this time. 
  4.  With microblade treated eyebrows, you can wake up 10-minutes late and still have perfect eyebrows to begin your day. 

How Long Does Microblading Last?

While microblading is often termed as permanent makeup, in practice it is semi-permanent. It does not last permanently and fades over time. With regular touch-ups and upkeep, you can expect the results to last between 18 months to 30 months.

How long the microblading lasts also depends on different factors and differs from person to person. Some of the key factors that decide the fate of microblading include the lifestyle of an individual, their skin type, type of work, exposure to the sun, exposure to saltwater, smoking habits, usage of chemical peels, deficiencies, etc.

It should also be taken into account that darker shades last longer and require less maintenance. Lighters shades fade faster and require frequent touch-ups to last longer.

One thing to keep in mind is that these pigments will fade and lighten over time, but won’t disappear completely. Pointedly, that is why it is called permanent makeup.  

You’d be asked to come for touch-ups every 6-months, and you can also go for a boost after a year or so. We suggest that the best time to come for a touch-up is when you start noticing even a tiny bit of fading.

Extending the Life of Microbladed Eyebrows

The best way to ensure your eyebrows last as long as possible is to take some precautions. For instance, minimize your exposure to sun and UV Rays. Avoid the eyebrows area during chemical peels.

You might also need to minimize your time swimming in the ocean if you do that frequently. Smoking is another habit that accelerates the breakdown of the pigment in the skin.

The makeup artist and their skills also work itself in extending the life of the eyebrows. If the pigment is injected only on the surface of the skin, then the pigment would fade extremely fast given that the epidermis goes through the renewal cycle continuously.

And lastly, take all the precautions and follow the aftercare rules down to the tee. The more attentive you are, the longer your thick and luscious eyebrows will last.

Take Away

Microblading is an amazing new technique that gives everyone a chance to get the eyebrows of their dreams and that too for at least 2-years. Most times, it isn’t solely about fashion at all. A lot of our clients started feeling confident after they have felt self-conscious about their eyebrows all their lives. Postpartum, surgical procedures, and major surgeries also often cause shedding of eyebrow hairs and cause gaps in the eyebrows.

Microblading is a revolutionary technique that allows everyone out there to feel just as beautiful on the outside and they are on the inside.
