PERMANENT COSMETIC TATTOO PROCEDURES
Permanent cosmetics procedures are performed using various machines and methods, such as the pen or rotary machine and the non-machine or hand method. These procedures are a process which includes the initial consultation, initial application of pigment, and usually, one or two follow up visits for adjusting the shape and color or density of the pigment.
Is cosmetic tattoo really permanent?
Technically, permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. Cosmetic tattoo requires periodic maintenance because fading does occur often. We recommend color refresher touch ups between 12-18 months.
How long does each procedure take?
The initial procedure will generally take approximately 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours. Follow-up procedures usually do not require as much time as the initial procedure.
Is it painful?
Permanent cosmetics procedures are of a skin invasive nature, as they are a form of cosmetic tattoo and therefore you may experience some discomfort. This may vary according to each individual’s pain threshold. There are different methods available to help with pain management, including various topical anesthetic ointments and anesthetic blocks as well as topical desensitizing products. Micropigmentation is a skin invasive procedure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and OSHA have set standards for a clean and sanitary working environment and sterile equipment.
Things to look for:
- Needles used should be new and sterile for each patient and disposed of properly after each patient.
- Gloves should be used for each client and changed during the procedure when needed.
- Your technician should be clean and neat and knowledgeable of environmental safety requirements.
- Clean sheets should be used for each patient.
- The room or treatment arena should be in an area free from other contaminants as well. Documented allergic reactions to permanent cosmetic procedures are extremely rare. Skin testing may be done by technicians upon request. Regardless, it should be understood that an allergic reaction could occur at any point in time.
What if I don’t like it?
Although the procedure is considered permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing color and shape to some extent. Colors will appear darker immediately following the procedure but will soften and lighten during the healing process, which takes approximately a week.
Tattooed eyebrows healing process
On day 1 to 3 your eyebrows are about 15-40% darker. They will also appear thicker than what we drew on. This is due to oxidation and swelling. Don’t be concerned with the darker, thicker appearance; this is part of the healing process. You may also have redness that will subside within the first 48 hours. Start primocyn right away. Don’t forget to blot off excess fluids.
Day 4 the peeling begins. The dark outer color will start peeling off revealing the softer, lighter color. Keep moist but don’t over do.
Day 5 to 8 dark outer color finishes peeling off. The color is lighter and softer and the brows themselves are a little thinner. The color may have a grayish or ashy tone for a few days until the color clarifies. It could appear that you are missing color and have light areas at this time due to layers of dry skin over the new pigment. Give your eyebrows 3 full weeks to heal and for color to fully bloom.
