How Long Does it Last?

Ombre Powder is permanent, but it does fade overtime. With the first touch up, Ombre Powder brows lasts about 1-3 years depending on several factors.

Longevity depends on the following factors:

  1. Style chosen
    • Soft and natural Ombre Powder brows don’t last as long and require more touch up/maintenance
    • Dark and defined Ombre Powder brows last longer than natural style brows
    • This is a major factor in longevity
  2. Skin type
    • Dry skin retains pigments much longer
    • Oily skin tends to fade faster and needs more maintenance and touch ups
    • This is a major factor in longevity
  3. Aftercare
    • Following the aftercare instructions is crucial to proper healing and therefore better healed results and retention
    • It is very important to avoid water and sweating the first 7 days and avoid picking and touching the brows while they are scabbing. Failure to do so will result in poor healed results and lower retention.
    • This is a major factor in longevity
  4. Skincare
    • Active skincare with anti-aging properties, exfoliants (chemical or physical), AHA, retinols, glycolic, salicylic acids, etc. promote fading and therefore should be avoided around the brow area and the forehead area.
  5. Lifestyle (Sun exposure, medication, skin conditions, etc.)
    • Excessive sun exposure (sunbathing, tanning) may promote fading
    • Excessive sweating can promote fading
    • Some medication affects color longevity as well as promotes residual color (more on that later)
