You can lose 30% to 60% of the color and intensity as the skin heals. Touch up procedures are to fill, correct and darken to provide the desired look.
Pigment (color) will last 1 to 2 years after a 2 to 3 month touch up. Annual or biannual touch ups are necessary for optimal vibrancy.
Longevity of your brows also depends on your facial creams/cleansers/make-up ingredients, certain chemicals can cause the color to fade or change colors.
Previous eyebrow tattoo
Do you have a previous eyebrow tattoo?
Disclose when you talk to Selena about Microblading options.
Do you want to change or fix what they have previously had done?
I can color correct from red to brown. I can add hair strokes to your existing eyebrow tattoo if light enough. If the previous tattoo is to dark you may have to consider laser removal prior to a procedure.
