A question that is often asked by people who are considering having permanent eyebrow makeup is, how long does it last?
The answer to this question really depends on a number of different factors. If you get good quality ink and service at a reputable clinic, then your eyebrows should last for around three years each. However many people may require re-powdering after 18 months, or 18-24 months. A poor quality product or lackluster technique can cause eyebrows to fade faster than this. Whereas a well executed treatment will look much better and last much longer. So the reality is that permanent eyebrow makeup is actually semi-permanent.
This article aims to lay out some guidelines as to how long eyebrows are expected to last before you need some form of touch up.
Generally speaking 3 years is the average amount of time that most people will have before they need their first touch up. This will vary depending upon a number of factors, including the depth that you have your eyebrows done and how fast your natural regrowth is. People with light hair will have their new brows show up better. Those who have very dark hair may need to wait a little longer.
People who already have some eyebrow hairs will also find that their permanent makeup lasts longer than those who are completely hairless. The more you have prior to treatment, the longer it will last before touch ups.
Why eyebrow makeup shouldn’t be permanent
Generally you do not want to truly have your eyebrows permanent. The reason is you might want to have a different style, to keep up with the fashion. The aging process and the gravity of the face pulling down the skin over the years. When this happens you would most certainly want a different style.
