How long does Microblading last?

Microblading eyebrows how long does it last


Microblading is a semipermanent eyebrow procedure that can last up to 3 years. The longevity of your procedure comes down to the following factors:


The procedure is able to hold its colour for so long because we deposit pigment into the epidermal layer, below the surface of the skin. During the recovery period (10 days) the skin forms a light scab over the incisions. These scabs eventually slough away leaving the pigment enclosed in the epidermis. As the skin continues to regenerate through the years, the pigment is eventually pushed up to the outermost layer of the skin and is shed along with the skin.

This process can take up to 3 years with proper care and maintenance. Knowing how deep to go when making the incisions is a key factor (along with pretreating the skin and of course, following post care instructions) in the longevity of your microblading. Making the incisions too deep will cause the pigment to be deposited in the dermis layer of your skin thereby making your procedure permanent and increases the risk of scarring over the treatment site. Not going deep enough will make your brows fade prematurely.


As skin experts, knowledge of the skin gives Dérmica comprehensive insight of this procedure. Typically, the head area of the brow has thicker skin in comparison to the arch and the tail. Skin thickness varies by sex, age, skin type, skin tone, health, and lifestyle.

Thicker skin generally means that there are more pores and the skin is oilier. The skin thins as we age so typically, older people have thinner skin, as well as people with a fair skin tone. Also, because older skin does not regenerate as quickly, it has shown to hold pigment better since it is not as oily. This understanding helps us use correct amount of pressure on the skin in order to get to the depth we want.


During your microblading procedure, we use a fine sharp blade to make incisions into the skin in order to insert pigment. As a result your skin experiences a bit of trauma, which is why preparation and post care play such an important role.

By providing you with Pre-Treatment guidelines and a Care kit, we encourage you to take necessary precautions prior to treatment to ensure that your treatment can be performed safely and effectively, and increase the success rate of your microblading.
