If you step into the world of PMU, then you just need to expect maintenance over the years to come.
Some techs recommend annual visits . . .
This may be ok in a few cases... but in OUR opinion, this may create excessive scar tissue over a long period of time. So we feel that you should allow your permanent makeup to be your crutch, not expect it to be your wheel chair.
For example, if you just need a stroke or two, here and there, that's fine. But if the skin is opened, across the entire treated area every single year, this will make future touchups more challenging due to damaged skin. You need to give it time to recuperate. So try not to schedule another visit until your PMU fades to the point that :
IT'S TOO LIGHT . . . that the patterns are too hard to follow when applying your makeup.
IT'S TOO DARK . . . that things appear a little too harsh.
COLORS HAVE FADED OR SHIFTED INTO AN UNNATURAL LOOKING COLOR.
WHY IS COLOR THEORY &
WHY IS COLOR BOOSTING IS IMPORTANT?
WHY do the colors change over time?
In the most basic of terms... your brown brows were created using a specific combination of the following colors:
RED + YELLOW + BLACK or BLUE = BROWN
PROBLEM: The color that was once ok, has now shifted into an unnatural look. The reason for this is simple. Our bodies metabolize different colors at various rates. So in a nutshell, the loss of any ONE of these colors can create an unnatural balance.
SOLUTION: Add back the missing color.
The best case scenario is that all colors fade evenly and just get lighter as they fade off, but there is no way to guarantee this to happen. If an imbalance keeps happening, there is a chance that your metabolism absorbs more of the missing color, than the other colors.
TOO DARK: Occasionally, colors may look too dark. If so, you should seek out a form of color reduction. Then, reapply the needed color.
A RECENT STATE LAW HAS MANDATED THAT ARTISTS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO PERFORM REMOVAL OF PIGMENT. THEREFORE. YOU MUST SEEK OUT HELP FROM A QUALIFIED DOCTOR.
