Permanent Cosmetics is considered permanent because once the pigment is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin it cannot be washed off like traditional cosmetics. However, fading can and will occur. When the color is freshly applied it should always look “too dark”. After the healing process is complete there will be an obvious loss of color. After the initial application of color, a follow up procedure may be necessary to achieve the correct level of color saturation. Generally after the initial application and follow up of Permanent Make Up are complete, the longevity of pigment in the skin is 3 to 5 years.  The pigment we use will fade over time.
