How Long Does It Last?
Microblading lasts roughly 1-3 years or more in terms of how long it takes for most of the pigment to fade. There is no guarantee that the pigment will fade out completely over time. Fading of strokes varies depending on various lifestyle factors and the client's skin type. For most clients, an annual touch up is recommended to ensure that the color and shape of their new brows are maintained.
