What Affects The Longevity Of Microblading?

People who enter a beauty clinic for microblading in Hull often do so in order to reduce the everyday stress that can come with taming unruly brows, and in that regard, few people are disappointed by the longevity.

Much like other forms of semi-permanent makeup, microblading often lasts at least a year, although with semi-regular top-up sessions, it can last an exceptionally long time, at least in most cases.

However, how potent your beauty regime is can affect how long your microblading treatment will last and whether it could potentially fade early.

One of the most obvious treatments that can affect microblading is microdermabrasion, a treatment where fine crystals are applied to the skin that are swiftly vacuumed away.

It typically eradicates dead skin layers, but at the same time, it can also lift away the pigment if used too close to the eyebrows.

A more common concern is retinol, also known as Vitamin A, which is regularly used under the eyes and on the forehead to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but can also

cause the pigment of semi-permanent tattoos to fade if it is a particularly strong formulation.

Finally, there are chemical facial peels, which often cover the entire face and in some cases can affect deeper skin layers if a deeper peel is used.

One of the potential side effects of chemical peels is changing the pigment of the skin, but the strength of the ingredients involved can lift the ink from the microblading treatment as well, so it is important to be very careful when getting a chemical peel applied.

If you can avoid regular exfoliation that can lead to the best outcomes for your microblading treatment, but otherwise try to keep such products away from the tattooed areas as much as possible, even after they have healed.
