The Lifespan of Microblading: A Comprehensive Guide!


Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique used to enhance eyebrows. The procedure involves using a handheld tool with micro-needles to deposit pigment under the skin's surface, creating hair-like strokes that mimic the natural eyebrows' appearance. While Microblading offers a long-lasting solution to sparse, thin, or poorly shaped brows, it is essential to understand how long the results last before committing to the procedure.

The lifespan of Microblading varies from person to person and depends on several factors. And that is what we have discussed in this blog! So, keep reading!

Factors Affecting the Longevity of Microblading

Microblading can last up to three years. But the pigment will gradually fade over time. And the following factors play a significant role in determining how long the results will last.

Skin Type

People with oily skin experience faster fading than those with dry or normal skin. It's because the excess oil in the skin can cause the pigment to break down faster. On dry skin, they may last a bit longer.

Sun Exposure

Exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can cause the pigment to fade faster. Hence, protect the eyebrows from the sun by wearing a hat or using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Lifestyle Habits

Lifestyle habits such as swimming, sauna, and excessive sweating can cause the pigment to fade faster. Therefore, avoid these activities for at least ten days after the procedure. And apply a protective barrier cream to the brows before participating in these activities.

Aftercare Practices

Following the aftercare instructions provided by your Microblading artist is crucial for the longevity of your results. These instructions typically include avoiding water, touching or scratching the brows, and applying a healing cream as directed.

Remember, the initial session of Microblading is only the beginning of the eyebrow enhancement process. The results will not be fully visible until after the healing process, which can take up to six weeks. A touch-up appointment is usually scheduled six to eight weeks after the initial session to ensure that the desired results are achieved.

During this touch-up appointment, the artist will assess the healed results and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the brows look natural and symmetrical. It’s an opportunity to refresh the pigment and extend the longevity of the results.
