Although there are some considerations that we will discuss further below, semi-permanent eyebrow procedures do not seem to have any kind of lasting effect on the way natural hair grows, even when it seems that the entire eyebrow needs to be reshaped. The eyebrows will continue to lighten for a period of six weeks, as the skin naturally regenerates and exfoliates. But even after this six-week mark, as eyebrow stylist Joey Healy tells Allure, simple things like sun exposure can fade your eyebrows faster than you might expect. His face gets a lot of sun, even in winter and in cold climates, and degrades ink faster, Healy explains.
The sun that hits your face will change the color of the ink so that it sometimes looks orange, blue and I have even seen pink. Therefore, even if your eyebrows are completely healed, you may want to wear large sunglasses and a hat for extra protection. If you hesitated to book your microblading appointment because you were afraid it would ruin your natural eyebrows, don't worry. That title, “The Truth About Microblading”, represents in a disturbing way my overall experience and today I share my story about why I'm taking microblading off.

The main (and most frightening) problem with microblading is that the procedure cuts the skin to deposit the pigment.

Without these tweaks, Menendez says you would see microbladed eyebrows fade and eventually disappear completely after about three years.
I just want people to see both sides of microblading because it's important to understand what it is and what you're getting into. I also said, “I'm sharing this story with you because I want you to think twice about microblading and who you go to. Like any long-lasting beauty treatment, microblading has a good number of advantages and a fair number of disadvantages. That said, it's understandable if you approach the idea of microblading with a little bit of trepidation.
Campbell says he doesn't actually recommend microblading cosmetically, due to the maintenance required and the fact that, like Dr.
