How Long Does Microblading Last? Isn’t It Permanent?


It’s confession time: Are you someone having sparse or uneven brows? Or do you have almost no brow hair? Then, Microblading treatment can be the best way to go. This cosmetic tattooing process can help you achieve the brows you dream of.

Of course, microblading lasts longer than your usual brow pens or pomades since the artists use several needles to implant the pigments beneath your skin to give a look of fine hair. After the procedure, you get natural and fluffy hair-like brows.

But a question may come to your mind, “How Long Does Microblading Last?” Well, this answer depends on how you care for the brow after treatment.

Things Affect How Long Microblading Can Last

Most people think microblading lasts forever since it’s a tattooing technique. But that’s not TRUE! According to our experts, the best microblading treatment can last between 18 to 30 months, which means around two years on average, depending on your aftercare. Within that time, your tattoo will start to fade.

And if you want your microblading to last even up to a couple of years, it requires a touch-up session after four to eight weeks of the treatment apart from proper aftercare. It’s because pigment can fade away while healing since the strokes is not so deep. During touch up, the artists add the final strokes and give your brows a perfect look!

Skin Type

Here’s another thing that affects how long microblading will last in your case. For example, this eyebrow tattoo can last best if you have normal or dry skin since it heals aesthetically on such skin types. But the hair strokes usually fade away or get blurred on oily skin quickly in most cases. However, it doesn’t mean that microblading can’t achieve a great look for eyebrows on oily skin.

How to Make Your Microblading Last

No matter you have normal, oily, or dry skin, following these tips may help you make your microblading last longer:

  • Try to avoid direct exposure to excessive sunlight or LED lights.

  • Never rub or itch your skin, even if you experience these common side effects, like inflammation or itching, after the treatment. All these problems go away after two weeks!

  • Avoid getting your eyebrows wet in the first week of healing. It may loosen and lighten the pigments.
