FUTURE MAINTENANCE IS MANDATORY . . .
If you step into the world of PMU, thinking that your "permanent" makeup will never need any TLC, because after all. . . it's PERMANENT, then you one day learn that by "permanent" really means that it won't wash off. But it WILL change over the years!
So, if you decide on a procedure, then just ACCEPT THE FACT NOW, that maintenance in the years to come, is a necessity - but ONLY if you want to keep things looking fresh and pretty.
We advise a LIGHT follow-up once a year. This way we can stay on top of inevitable changes AS THEY OCCUR instead of waiting five years for them to turn ugly.
RULE OF THUMB: Try to schedule a visit until WHEN your PMU is:
TOO LIGHT . . . that the patterns are too hard to follow when applying your makeup.
TOO DARK . . . that things appear a little too harsh.
COLORS HAVE FADED OR SHIFTED INTO AN UNNATURAL LOOKING COLOR.
What is Color Theory &
Why is Color Boosting 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: 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: SIMPLE . . . just add back the missing color.
The best case (and MOST UNLIKELY) scenario is that all colors fade evenly and they all just get lighter evenly - as they fade off.
Of course this is possible, but there is no way to guarantee this to happen with your skin. If an imbalance keeps happening, there is a chance that your metabolism absorbs more of the missing color, than the other colors. This can happen for multiple reasons such as your exposure to UV light, diet, medications, etc.
TOO DARK: Occasionally, colors may look too dark. If so, you should seek out a form of color reduction. Then, reapply the needed color.
