PERMANENT MAKEUP (TATTOO)


Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo.


Permanent makeup results in enhanced features of the face—definition is rendered to eyebrows, eyes and lips by the use of colors.


Results can imitate topically applied cosmetics or can be quite unnoticeable, depending upon the design, color value and amount of pigment used.


Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, dates back to the early 1980s, when it was developed to address alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss (including eyebrows)



Pre-procedure Instructions


When scheduling an appointment date for a permanent makeup procedure, keep in mind the healing time of the procedure.


You will need a few days afterward without social plans or strenuous activity.


You will not look your best (swelling, oozing, and looks like wet paint).


Plan a shopping trip ahead of time for items you will need: ointments, straws, napkins for blotting, Q-tips, OTC pain reliever or prescriptions.


Exclude chores that will get dirt/ bacteria on the healing area.


Do not have a permanent makeup procedure right before going on vacation because


1) you need healing time – you will not look like you had a makeover at the mall,


2) you may not be able to avoid sun, wind, or other items listed in post-care instructions,


3) if you had a question or permanent makeup problem it would be best to be near your permanent makeup artist and local physician.


Do not wear your good clothes for the procedure because pigment might splatter on them.


Pigment washes out of most clothes, but not your favorite ones.


Wear something comfortable.


Permanent eyebrow procedures do not need sedation.


The brow area numbs easily and the procedure doesn't take long. 


Permanent eyeliner procedures benefit most from relaxation because some people cannot control the squeeze and flinch protective reflexes for the eyes and might cause an error or injury.


Permanent eyeliner and lip procedures take longer (if you want enough pigment in there to last) and the sedation also helps keep you comfortable lying still in one spot. 


Most states do not restrict permanent makeup procedures to doctors offices, so may not have the benefit of prescription strength numbing meds and sedation.


Alternative herbal products being used include Valerian, Kava, Hops, Melatonin, St John’s Wort, Passion Flower Chamomile, Willow Bark, and Theanine.


Antihistamines like Benedryl taken before the permanent makeup procedure may reduce swelling and help you relax.


Benedryl also helps eyes not be so watery during eyeliner procedures.


Watery eyes can dilute the pigment that is being implanted.


Permanent eyebrow swelling is mild and barely noticeable.


Permanent eyeliner swelling is moderate.


Permanent lip color swelling is severe.


Arnica Montana and Bromelain may reduce swelling.


It is rare to have a healing problem with permanent makeup eyebrows or eyeliner.


If there is going to be a permanent makeup problem, it will be with the lips.


Two unpleasant lip complications are Candida infections and hyper-pigmentation.



Immediate results


At first, permanent makeup results may look darker.


This is due to color remaining in the outermost epidermal layers of skin at the start.


Color softens within a few days during the healing process as the upper layers of epidermis slough and are replaced by new epidermal cells.


Long term results


The best possible color results can perform for many years or may begin to fade over time.


How much time is individual per person.


While permanent makeup pigment remains in the dermis its beauty-span may be influenced by several possible factors.


These can be environmental, procedural and/or individual factors.


Sun exposure fades color.


The amount and color of pigment deposit at the dermal level can affect the length of time that permanent makeup looks its best.


Very natural looking applications of permanent makeup are likely to require a touch-up before more dramatic ones for this reason.


Individual influences include lifestyles that find an individual in the sun regularly such as with gardening or swimming.


Skin tones are a factor in color value changes over time.
