Semi permanent makeup has made a comeback due to the revolutionary breakthrough technique of Microblading. Microblading is a semi permanent make up method for eyebrows.

These deposits mimic the look of an actual eyebrow hair and fill in gaps and voids in the brow line making the eyebrow look fuller, thicker, and much more refined. Eyebrows end up looking incredibly natural with this treatment, and it has caused quite a flurry in the semi permanent make up world. This new technique has made us rethink semi permanent make up for eyelids, lips and under eyes. All these treatments have had a refresh in the industry with new breakthrough applications, and a ton of new and exciting products developed and released into the market.
So how long does Semi permanent makeup last? There are several factors to take into account. Age, skin type and aftercare all play a role in how long any of your permanent make up treatments will last. Mature skin tends to hold pigment for longer thus making semi permanent make up last longer. The reason for this is mature skin regenerates at a slower rate leaving the Semi permanent makeup results for longer. Oily skin can play a role in the length of time semi permanent make up lasts. Oily skin leaves skin lubricated twenty-four hours a day, and this can make semi permanent inks fade faster due to the constant lubrication. People who bleed excessively sometimes have issues with the pigment taking and can need additional treatments. It’s is advisable to avoid taking any blood thinners before your procedure to minimize the possibility of over bleeding. Although some bleeding is necessary for the depth to be correct for the pigment to take at all, bleeding pushes out the pigment if it is excessive. Refrain from all blood thinners such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin and all caffeine products before your appointment. Additionally, Vitamin E can cause bleeding, so stop for seven days before any semi permanent make- up treatments.
Results vary from client to client. Aftercare is a priority and will significantly affect your final results. As it is healing, the pigment will get darker for the first three to five days. Darkening of pigment is usual and required as the ink is going to lighten dramatically upon completion of healing. This pigment will then flake and become 30-50% lighter. So beware. It is necessary for your semi permanent make up to feel uncomfortably dark for it to be the desired color after the healing process has gone through its steps. It is essential to have a touch up in as little as four weeks or as long as eight weeks. Clients who are more mature need a longer healing time in between their initial appointment and touch up.
