Longevity Depends On You!
Brow tattoos normally last 1-3 years depending on lifestyle, skin type and aftercare.
Exposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment. Once completely healed, always apply sunscreen (50 SPF or greater) on brow area.
Avoid using chemical exfoliants on the brows, as it will cause fading.
Do not do laser near your brow area (IPL). Some lasers may change the color of the ink.
Additional brow makeup application may still be required post tattoo to achieve your desired look.

Caring For My Brows:
Wash your hands before doing any aftercare. For the first day of your procedure wipe your treated area 3 hours after with a cold lightly damp sterile cloth. Your Microblading/Permanent Cosmetics will produce yellowish or clear fluid which is lymphatic liquid (plasma) this is totally normal as your skin is trying to protect and heal itself, wipe again in the evening and before bed. Beginning the morning after your procedure wipe area gently, with a cold lightly damp sterile cloth. after wiping apply a very small amount of ointment (if needed to reduce itching) (Very Small Amount, Do Not Over Lubricate.). wipe area once more leaving only a residue of ointment, again do not pick or scratch off scabs of any size as ink can sit within these scabbed areas, it will affect the way it will look, be extremely careful when you perform any aftercare procedures or doing anything,
Brow After Care: The results and longevity of your tattoo greatly depend on how you take care of your brows during the healing process. Client’s skin will respond differently, both in the length of time it takes to heal, and the number of sessions needed for your desired results and color retention.
Please keep in mind; color intensity will be sharper, brighter, darker and somewhat larger due to swelling. It will take a minimum of 10-14 days for this transition and the true color and shape to appear. There will be a 20 to 50% change in lightening and softening for brows, In some cases there will be unevenness of pigment or even missing, don’t be alarmed! this is the best time for you to critique any color or design changes prior to our touch up,
