Permanent Makeup: Forever Fresh-Faced
Permanent makeup makes it easy to exchange your makeup bag for a few extra minutes in bed. Read up on this convenient cosmetic treatment before going under the needle.
Permanent makeup—usually used to define or fill in eyelids, eyebrows, and lips—is essentially a tattoo. But in this case, the lines applied to skin are typically designed not to stand out but to blend in. Using a standard tattoo gun—a cosmetic technician implants micropigments made from inert minerals just below the surface of the skin. The artist may create a solid wash of color to make lips rosier or lash lines darker, or may carefully draw in individual strands of hair along the brow.
Is eyeliner important to your appearance and feeling of self confidence? Does your eyeliner smudge? Does it wear off during the day? Do you have trouble getting it straight or even? Are you allergic to cosmetic products or your allergies causing you to re-apply several times a day? Maybe your job requires that you go make-up free. If so…
Permanent eyeliner procedures, also known as permanent cosmetics, permanent makeup, cosmetic tattooing, and micropigmentation are perfect for you
Eyeliner can be applied in many styles and colors, from soft, natural-looking lash enhancement to a defined line–the choice is yours! Some people feel both upper and lower eyeliner suits their needs best, while others feel only an upper or a lower eyeliner is appropriate for them. Whatever look you choose, you will wake up, shower, exercise, work, swim, and go to bed always looking your best. No more tattle tale eyeliner smear or smudge during the day, no more concern when participating in sports activities and best, your appearance remains consistently fresh appearing throughout the day and night.
As with any artistic appearance enhancement service, techniques will vary from technician to technician. Your permanent cosmetic professional may ask you to wear your eyeliner to the consultation the way you would like it to appear after the cosmetic tattoo has healed. Or, you may be asked to bring a pictorial representation of the preferred eyeliner design. Your technician will advise you if the example(s) are age and style appropriate for permanent cosmetic eyeliner.
The actual cosmetic eyeliner process varies inasmuch as there are numerous devices that prevent cross contamination that the permanent cosmetic professional may use. The choices are the coil machine, the linear device (the Neo Tat) the digital rotaries, the permanent cosmetic pen rotaries and the manual device. All, when used in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogens guidelines, are safe. You may ask to see the attendance certificate indicating your technician has attended an OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens class. If there is permit, registration, or licensing required in your state, you should also look for the appropriate documents, which are required to be posted in plain sight, to ensure the cosmetic tattoo artist is compliant with state and local laws.
The process – Some technicians will use a pre-procedure anesthetic, some do not. If a pre-procedure anesthetic is used and the technician is not a physician or working under the direction of a physician, it will be an over-the-counter (OTC) level anesthetic which has proved to be quite effective. If you are working with an SPCP member technician, the anesthetic is likely to be provided by an SPCP supplier member who ensures anesthetic OTC contents levels are well within the limits of the law. The same applies to anesthetics used during the permanent eyeliner procedure.
The work table will be assembled with one-time-use accessories. If a pre-procedure anesthetic was applied, it is removed in a timely manner in accordance with manufacturer instructions, a sterilized needle will be opened, the needle assembled into the device and the procedure begins.
Typically, OTC eye products (eyewash, eye drops, etc.) are used throughout the permanent eyeliner procedure.
Unlike summer-camp friendships, permanent makeup usually doesn’t last forever. That’s because the face receives more UV exposure than other body parts, so ink there fades more quickly. Touchup sessions may be scheduled as soon as six months or as long as 10 years after the initial session. As with any tattoo, clients likely will experience a bit of swelling for three to seven days, and the pigment will appear darker than the target shade for about six weeks. There is one post-treatment precaution to take: the minerals in permanent makeup can interfere with MRIs, so you should be sure to inform your technician of any micropigmentation you have as well as the number of magnets you’ve swallowed.
- Permanent makeup’s uses go beyond the obvious: in 2007, one artist told Elle that some clients have opted to tattoo already-full brows as a permanent guideline for waxing techs.
- Cosmetic tattooing isn’t a Western invention. Some of the Maori women of New Zealand are reported to have felt that their elaborate, traditional facial tattoos also kept wrinkles from developing around the mouth
Looking Your Best with Permanent Makeup
Permanent Makeup is the perfect solution for those with eyesight impairment or unsteady hands due to medical conditions such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, paralysis, or a host of other problems causing physical restriction.
The uses for permanent makeup expand beyond eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. For those who are convinced that permanent makeup serves only the daily face makeup user, this column will bring new light. There are many medically related reasons for having permanent makeup applied.
Areola Repigmentation is an option. Patients who have had mastectomy surgery and breast reconstruction have two choices when it comes to reconstructing the areola. One option would be a skin graft which requires further plastic surgery. The other option is to simulate the areola through permanent makeup. In this procedure color and shape are matched to the intact side, or a new color and shape are chosen for both breasts, blending with the shape of the new breast and the client’s skin tone. Permanent makeup thus offers a less costly option with a shorter healing time and fewer traumas to the body.
Alopecia is a medical condition, which causes hair loss either in patches or it can affect the entire body. Head hair, brows, lashes and body hair can be lost, causing a great deal of psychological trauma for the patient. Permanent makeup can help bring back self-esteem and confidence to the Alopecia patient. In the hands of a skilled technician, brows can be applied in a natural manner and eyelash enhancement or full eyeliner can be used, either alone or as an adjunct to false eyelashes, creating restored facial features. Patients who are undergoing chemotherapy can benefit in the same was as the alopecia patient when hair loss of brows and lashes occurs from cancer treatment.
Scar Camouflage is an option in several cases. Plastic surgery, even by the best of surgeons can leave some scarring along the perimeter of the surgery site. Accidents or burns may cause scarring. The most successful type of scar to work with is flat, not raised and a lighter color than the intact skin surrounding it. Scars which are located within the hairline, from facelifts or sparse areas after hair transplantation can be camouflaged. The same is true for stabilized male pattern baldness. The technician uses a subtle technique to fill in the sparse area, matching the color to the clients’ existing hair.
Cleft Lip Correction is done surgically but the patient will normally be left with a lip, which appears incomplete. Permanent makeup is ideal for reconstructing the lip line, normally by applying full lip color either in a natural tone or cosmetic color, whichever is preferred by the client.
