All color fades and cosmetic tattoo color is no exception. It is designed to gradually fade and lighten over time. How long your semi-permanent makeup will last is difficult to pinpoint. Skin condition, sun exposure, and skin type all affect color retention. Periodic maintenance (touch ups/color refreshing) is recommended every 1-2 years to keep your makeup looking fresh. As an existing client, any and all future touch ups are priced at 50% off the initial procedure price within the first three years following your initial appointment. If I have not seen you in over three years pricing is based on new procedure rates.
