Maintaining the Color of Microbladed Brows
There are two simple steps that can help preserve the original color of microblading pigment as long as possible. This reduces the frequency of touch-ups, and also helps retain the ideal color tone.
The most important way to protect your freshly microbladed eyebrows is to use sunblock on the brow area. UV rays lighten pigment. This is true of both hair color and microblade pigment. Easy ways to reduce the sun’s effects on your brows are to wear sunblock, and also to wear large sunglasses with a UV filter, when you are outdoors, or at the pool.
The fading effect of UV light is most obvious on the lighter and warmer tones (gold, orange, red tones) of microblade pigments. A person who gets frequent sun exposure on their brow area will notice gold, or red tones fading first. This will tend to cause warm brown colors to look more gray. Protecting the pigment from UV fading will keep warm tones looking great.
Since microblading pigment is deposited just below the surface of the skin, over time it will exfoliate away as the skin naturally sheds, and new layers of skin replace the old. To slow down this process, it is advised to avoid any skincare product on the brow area that is designed to speed up cell turnover. These include retinol, Retin-A, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, or Salicylic Acid. These anti-aging ingredients can still be used on other areas of the face, but should be avoided on the brow area.
Protecting your Eyebrows with these simple steps keeps microblading looking it’s best.
