How long does microblading last?

Beautiful, well-groomed eyebrows every day is every woman’s dream. Modern cosmetology opens up ample opportunities for fashionistas, one of which is permanent makeup. Many are interested in how long microblading lasts. After all, it is this procedure that today is one of the most popular in beauty salons.

What affects the duration of the result?

On average, the result of microblading will stay about two years. But the durability of the pigment depends on many factors. You should know that a month after the first procedure, correction is necessary in most cases. The lymph pushes the pigment out of the skin, so some eyebrows lighten a few weeks after the procedure. It’s a normal, natural process.

The durability of the microblading result depends on the following factors:

  • Firstly, individual characteristics of the skin;
  • Secondly, pigment quality;
  • Thirdly, the professionalism of a cosmetologist;
  • Also, the age of the woman;
  • In conclusion, correct skincare.

What's the impact on the time lasting of microblading?

Suppose the depth of pigment injection during the procedure is incorrect. It will help if you don’t expect long-lasting results. An experienced technician will select the optimum depth based on your skin type. If you entrust your appearance to an amateur, the result may be unpredictable.

Cheap dyes from dubious manufacturers can bleach or significantly change their shade over time. A good artisan can use only colour-tested pigments that will retain their original colour over time.

Young girls’ skin metabolism is more active than that of middle-aged and older women. Therefore, younger women will have a shorter lasting effect. Those with oily skin should not expect long-lasting results. The pigment is gradually displaced from the dermis with the sebum secretion.


Skincare is also necessary. Women who use oily creams spend a lot of time in the sun without protection. They actively remove the crusts that have formed after the treatment. Much of the pigment is removed from the epidermis. Our strong recommendation is to learn more about the microblading healing process in our article.
