Will it fade?
The first two weeks after a procedure is called the color stabilization time. The first few hours after a procedure, the color will darken as the swelling subsides. In three to seven days, the epidermal (outer) layer of skin will gradually peel or flake off as the new layer re-grows. Some of the color will come off with this layer. Allow a 10% to 30% fade during this time. Your color will soften with time. Using total sun block and avoiding tanning beds and chlorinated water will help prolong the duration of your color.
Is it expensive?
Looking at the long-term cost that you spend each year on cosmetics and the time spent applying makeup, it's worth every penny! For some of my aging clients who struggle to get their brows even and the frustrating time they spend getting ready for a function, they always leave on cloud nine wondering why they never knew about permanent makeup before!
How long does my permanent makeup last?
This varies with the lifestyle and care of each individual person. Typically, the duration is between two to five years. Following post-procedure care of the treated area will help prolong the results as well as using sunscreen, avoiding tanning beds and minimal exposure to chlorinated water.
