Your permanent cosmetic make-up procedure depends upon the technician, the products used for the application, how deep the cosmetic tattoo was placed into the skin, how well you take care of the procedural area while it is healing, and whether or not you use a total sun block after the procedure area has completely healed.  All these factors will determine how long the procedure will last.  Colour enhancers are also suggested 'as needed' to keep the procedure looking 'fresh and new'.
