Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing, is a cosmetic procedure designed to mimic the appearance of conventional makeup like eye liner or lip gloss. It can also be used to make eyebrows look thicker and hide scars, depending on the situation. Like regular tattoos, the colors do eventually fade, so the client should return for touch-ups.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
The client will need to start with a consultation, during which our technician may apply regular makeup to the treatment site to see how it will look. They will experiment with different colors. If the patient is getting permanent makeup to fill in eyebrows, they will also experiment with the shape of the eyebrow to see what shape is the most flattering and natural.
The technician will choose a technique depending on the treatment site. If the client is getting eyebrows done, for example, the technician will use one type of technique. In some cases, the technician will administer a topical anesthetic before beginning the procedure.
Why Would Somebody Get Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup can help people with certain conditions. For example, many types of permanent makeup can be used by people who are allergic to conventional makeup. It can also help people with conditions that impair their manual dexterity like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or arthritis. It is also useful for people with limited vision and for people with conditions like alopecia that cause hair loss. Healthy and active people who simply don’t want to spend a lot of time applying and re-applying makeup can also use permanent makeup.
