Faded permanent makeup can be touched up but you should know that there are limits.
When you first get your permanent makeup done, the color is usually 10-50% darker than how it looks when it heals. When you come to see us for your touch up 4-6 weeks after your appointment, we fine tune any areas that have faded too much because fading does happen after any permanent makeup procedure. You may need still to pencil or powder even after the healed results. Healing is different for every client, and it is important to remember that permanent makeup is not a permanent makeup solution, it is an enhancement to your natural look and at some point you will need a color boost to maintain a fresh appearance.
We recommend color enhancements to your permanent makeup every two years, no sooner. This is because each time a procedure is performed, the pigment takes less and less each time. This is because of scar tissue and at a certain point your skin may not take the pigment and permanent makeup will no longer be an option for you.
If you are the type of person who is out in the sun a lot, has oily skin, uses anti-aging creams or retinA/retinol products, acidic cleansers, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or if you sweat frequently your permanent makeup will fade prematurely. Your skin and lifestyle have a big impact on the outcome of your look, and if you follow the suggested after care then your look will last a lot longer.
