Tips to Increase the Longevity of Your Brows

The life of your freshly tattooed brows varies based on a number of factors including the individual, but we suggest getting a color boost for your brows every 1-3 years.

That being said, we wanted to give you some tips to increase the time between your color boosts!


At Altered Aesthetics we want you to get the MOST out of your beautiful new brows! There are some factors out of our control such as oily skin or light colored brows, which tend to make brows fade faster but we wanted to give you some tips to ensure the longevity of your brows and to help keep your brows looking fresher, longer. 

  1. Make sure to wear sunscreen when outdoors. This is a great way to increase the longevity of your beautiful new brows as exposure to sun over time can cause fading of the pigment. 

  2. Glycolic acid, retinols, AHA's, salicylic acid, anti-aging lotions and serums, microdermabrasion, chemical face peels and laser treatment must be kept away from the tattooed area, as continued use could lighten the pigment. 

  3. If you are having laser resurfacing or laser hair removal after your brows have healed, please inform the laser technician. Some laser procedures may darken, lighten or discolor the tattooed area. 

MAKEUP TIP: When you apply makeup over the brow area they may appear lighter or powdery. Take a slightly wet q-tip and apply it over the brow area so those beautifully healed brows can SHINE!

Coming Soon to Altered Aesthetics! Brow Immortelle!

This serum is formulated to aid in the preservation of healed permanent makeup and is infused with Immortelle oil. Immortelle oil, is known to reduce scarring, increase hydration and reduce lines and wrinkles.
