How long an eyebrow piercing will last depends on many variables, such as body chemistry and how well you care for your piercings. Eyebrow piercings tend to migrate toward the surface of the skin over time, but with proper care, they can last anywhere from six months to several years.
We cannot guarantee that your eyebrow piercing will last as long as you'd like, and that time frame varies for everyone. However, if you care for it correctly, you'll have it for at least six months, typically much longer. Most people do end up with an eyebrow-piercing scar.
Eyebrow piercings are generally more difficult to heal than other piercings due to their location and the amount of movement that takes place in that area. It is essential to follow all aftercare instructions provided by the piercer and to clean the piercing area regularly to help ensure a successful healing process.
Take care when getting dressed or undressed, and avoid wearing anything that fits over your face for at least six weeks. You can always talk to your piercer about your lifestyle and see what actions they recommend you take (beyond standard aftercare) when it comes to helping your new piercing heal.
Eyebrow piercing rejection is a hot topic and a significant concern among many of the clients we see. It's not unheard of for eyebrow rings to reject, meaning the body will push out the jewelry over time.
Rejection rates are typically higher for eyebrow piercings, since this area of the body experiences a lot of movement and friction. The location is very flat and thin, with piercings sitting close to the outer skin layers.
If eyebrow piercing rejection concerns you, we advise that you know it's possible, but don't let it stop you from getting the piercing you genuinely want.
