So, How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?

  • On average, the effects of permanent makeup typically last from 1 to 3 years. However, it's not quite as straightforward as it may seem. Several factors come into play, making it a highly individual experience.

Factors Affecting Permanent Makeup Longevity:

1. Skin Type:

  • Oily skin tends to retain pigment for a shorter duration compared to dry skin. Your skin type plays a significant role in the longevity of your permanent makeup.

2. Age:

  • Age also plays a role; older individuals often experience longer-lasting results as their bodies naturally retain the pigment better than younger ones.

3. Pigment Color:

  • The color you choose matters. Lighter pigments tend to fade faster than darker ones, so your color selection can influence how long your permanent makeup stays vibrant.

4. Ultraviolet (UV) Rays:

  • Exposure to UV rays can break down pigment, causing it to fade faster. To preserve your look, always protect your skin with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) creams when outdoors.

5. Heat Effects:

  • Activities like cosmetic procedures, hot baths, sauna sessions, or tanning beds can accelerate pigment fading due to the heat they generate.

Proper Preparation and Aftercare:

  • Remember, your preparation and aftercare routines play a significant role in the longevity of your permanent makeup. To ensure the best results, please follow our comprehensive guidelines, which you can find here
