How Long Between Touch-Ups?
Touch-ups are part of the microblading process, but there is no standard answer as to how frequently they will be needed. The amount of Sun a person gets, the type of skincare they use, the thickness of their skin, the color of their microblading pigment, and their natural rate of cell turnover all affect how frequently their microblading will need to be touched-up.
Touch-ups are when the microblade artist applies a fresh layer of pigment over the original microblading, to refresh the color.
As a general rule of thumb, here is an illustration of how the color of pigment can affect the frequency of needing a touch-up
Light Blonde or Light Redhead: 6-9 months
Dark Blonde, Deep redhead, Brunette: 9-12 months
Dark Brunette / Black-Brown: 12-18 months
These approximate timeframes reflect the frequency at which the client will likely need a touch-up. The microblading pigment will still be visible, but it will have lightened enough that a touch up would be ideal.
