FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are Permanent Makeup or Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent makeup or permanent cosmetics describe non-surgical procedures that use specialized tattooing methods. Colored pigments are implanted into the Dermis (middle layer) of the skin through microscopic injections with an extremely fine needle or cluster of needles. This process is also called Micropigmentation, Intradermal Cosmetics, Dermal Implantation, Trico Pigmentation, SMP Microstroking or Microblading. Permanent Makeup is the term used to describe the cosmetic tattooing of facial features (eyebrows, eyelids, lips) to improve color and shape.
What are Medical or Paramedical Permanent Cosmetics?
This is a highly specialized and advanced area of permanent cosmetics that focuses on people with medically-related conditions. Examples include surgical scars (e.g. breast reconstruction, hair transplant), trauma scars (e.g. accidents or burns), or unnatural skin conditions (e.g. Vitiligo, Alopecia). The techniques restore color and symmetry to an affected area. The results can help a person look better and improve his or her self-esteem. This process is also called Medical Tattooing, Paramedical Tattooing, Corrective Tattooing, Reconstructive Tattooing or Restorative Tattooing.
How long does permanent makeup last?
It stays from 2 to 5 year or even longer sometimes. Color should be considered “semi-permanent” because some fading will occur over time. Color retention is affected by different factors including the shade of the original color, the person’s age and metabolism, skin type and condition, exposure to UV radiation (sun, tanning booths), smoking, certain drugs and medications, and skin peeling treatments such as Retin-A or microdermabrasion.
Is the procedure safe?
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), permanent cosmetics are safe when the technician is educated and follows all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines. A client has a supremely safe and sterile procedure because hypodermic needles connected with tips are safely packed and after the procedure needles are disposed to containers that meet all hygiene requirements. A patented system of needle and cassette protects equipment from any organism fluids or used pigment remains.
Is procedure painful?
No. Anesthetic lubricants are used during the procedure in order to relieve pain and discomfort a client might feel. Some people may feel minor discomfort that varies. Some people may sleep during the procedure!
Is correction necessary?
During the initial procedure (first application), the tattooed area will be saturated with as much color as possible. Due to swelling, there may be some areas where the tissue will no longer allow pigment to be implanted. Those areas will show less color after healing and may need another visit to be filled-in (a touch-up). Because everyone’s tissue reaction is different, some clients will need a second visit while others will not. First, the tattooed area must heal before a refinement procedure can be performed. It is best to wait 6 to 8 weeks for complete tissue healing and color stabilization. Many of clients are fully satisfied with just one application. For eyebrows – it is recommended to do it 3-4 weeks after the main (the first) procedure. For lips and eyes – it is done 6 weeks after the first procedure.
How many corrections will I need after the procedure?
It is recommended to do the main procedure and one more correction, however, if pigment does not spreads out in your skin so easily, you might need two corrections. According to statistics, one correction is enough for most of clients. However, many of clients are fully satisfied with just one application.
How long is permanent makeup procedure?
It takes from 2 to 4 hours. It includes a consultation and a review of the person’s medical history. Time is then used for determining the best design, color selection, numbing, the actual procedure, photos, after care instructions, and answering all questions. Follow-up visits usually require less time.
What is the recovery period like?
Immediately following a procedure, there will be mild swelling, redness, or tenderness that lasts a few hours to a few days (eyebrows swell less than eyelids and lips). There may also be slight bruising with lip procedures. The color looks much darker immediately afterward for any procedure. It will lighten a lot within 3 to 7 days and will continue to lighten over several weeks. During the first week ointments must be applied to the tattooed area for protection and to minimize scabbing. Swelling is effectively treated with ice cubes used on damaged area (wrap ice cubes in some fabric). The moment you feel eye irritation symptoms, it is recommended to use anti-inflammatory eye drops. If your eye inflammation gets any worse, you should immediately contact an ophthalmologist. Most people are amazed at how “normal” they look immediately after and do not feel it is necessary to take time off of work.
The national average time span between touchups is said to be 6-8 years.
Occasionally a person can be found who has had their permanent makeup over 10 years, but it is a rare occasion. There are other people who need a touchup after a couple of years. Lighter colors fade faster than darker colors. Permanent makeup lasts longer on older women because they aren’t out playing in the sun as much, and their cellular turnover rate is slower. The bright side to “Permanent” Makeup fading off is that it makes it easier to change color, shape, and placement over the years.
Do you get your eyebrow hair removed before the procedure?
No. Hair removal is only done for hair which does not fit in the eyebrow shape you want, after the sketch is drawn. Before eyelid micropigmentation is done, you should remove your false eyelashes and take off your contact lenses (if you wear them).
Why do some people not want bottom eyeliner?
Clients think the “uplift” they get from the top eyeliner is enough. A soft bottom liner will further enhance the eyes.
What precautions must I take before having a permanent makeup procedure?
The biggest precaution involve the lips. If you have a history of fever blisters, cold sores, shingles, canker sores or mouth ulcers, you must get a prescription of anti-viral medication prescribed by a doctor prior to the procedure. This helps eliminate a virus from occurring.
How are the procedures performed?
Cosmetic tattooing is performed by Rotary Machine or Computerized Digital Machine method.
Are the permanent makeup pigments that are used safe?
Permanent cosmetics utilize sterile pigments with cosmetic grade colorants that are approved by the FDA as safe for human use. The colored pigments used are non-iron oxides. The microscopic particles that appear to be dissolved are actually suspended in a clear liquid base of alcohol, distilled water and glycerin. The traditional body tattooing process is different because it uses colored “inks” or “dyes” that are completely dissolved liquids with transparent color.
Are people allergic to the colored pigments?
Pigments used for permanent makeup are made to be hypo-allergenic. Immediate allergic reactions to these products are extremely rare. Medical professionals believe reactions are not reactions to the pigments. Reaction is caused by a bacterial infection or an allergic reaction to a topical after care product.
What will the final color look like? Permanent makeup colors should be selected to compliment a person’s skin tone, hair, and eye color. A conservative approach is best because it is easier to make an existing color darker versus lighter. Colors will always look darker and more intense immediately following a procedure, and then gradually lighten and soften upon healing. For medical tattooing (e.g. scar camouflage or areola re-pigmentation), color spot testing is advised to determine the best custom combination of colors for the tattooed area.
Why is the color so dark right after the procedure?
The pigments contain dry microscopic powder particles that are suspended in a clear liquid. As the body absorbs the liquid, the colored particles remain where they were implanted and gradually return to (“dry to”) their original powder color. In addition, the skin underneath the tattoo turns red and “flushed” from blood flow to the area during the process. The background redness contributes to the darker appearance and once the redness subsides, the color appears lighter.
Can I have an MRI procedure after Cosmetic Tattooing?
Yes. We using non iron oxide pigments. It is different from tattoo artists, who applying iron oxide pigments. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and electromagnetic fields which cause mild temporary discomfort in tattoos made with an iron oxide pigments.
Why does permanent makeup fade and body tattoos don’t?
Permanent cosmetics are a form of cosmetic tattooing and should be thought of as being “permanent”. Different from traditional tattoos on the body. Traditional body tattoos do not fade. Or fade at a slow rate due to several different factors. For instance, body art is generally covered up with clothing most of the year and is not excessively exposed to the UV rays which fade cosmetic tattoos on the face. Also, the skin on the body is much denser as compared to facial skin, which is much thinner.
What if styles change?
We never do anything “trendy.” If you wanted to wear a different color lip liner or lipstick, the color you apply would override your permanent color.
Will Permanent Makeup continue to look good as I age?
It is true that as we age, our skin and its elasticity changes. However, there are many older women who look good wearing conventional makeup as long as it is correctly applied. Those women would look just as good with correctly applied permanent makeup.
