About permanent makeup in questions and answers.
A person’s notions of beauty, the image of an aesthetically attractive appearance are directly related to the healthy, smooth skin of even colour and harmonious, symmetrically located facial elements. How can you achieve an excellent cosmetic result without the use of a scalpel and medicines?
Question: What is the difference between permanent makeup and tattooing?
Answer: First of all, it is necessary to firmly determine what is essentially permanent makeup. Micro pigmentation and cosmetic tattooing are the names of the same procedure. All the leapfrog in the names of techniques and terminology appeared due to the fact that permanent makeup in terms of the formation of the conceptual apparatus, as well as legal, is still in its infancy.
Question: What kind of pigment is used for permanent makeup and how is it selected?
Answer: These are high-quality pigments, which include organic (vegetable) and inorganic (mineral) colour pigments. Plant pigments have a huge variety of natural shades. Although it is the plant components that are destroyed faster, which is due to their “washing out” as a result of blood circulation, cosmetic procedures (massage, peeling, skin nutrition, etc.) that stimulate blood flow. The amount of pigments available to the master largely determines the final result of the makeup: the more shades, the wider the possibilities. The master selects pigment based on his own experience and professionalism. Despite the fact that all pigment manufacturers produce specialised colour cards (by the way, their list is constantly expanding), the pigment in the skin behaves completely differently than decorative cosmetics. Its shade changes every day for a month after the procedure and only the master can predict the possible result. Therefore, it is important that a true professional is also a good colourist.
Question: Many are afraid to do lip tattoo or eyebrow tattoo or any other permanent makeup because they read scary stories about how people remained crooked, disfigured, with uneven arrows, eyebrows, for life. How justified are these fears?
Answer: It is better not to do permanent makeup at all than to do it with a bad specialist and get a problem for life instead of beauty. You need to be very responsible when choosing a master, after all, we are talking about the face.
The first thing to learn: a high-quality procedure cannot be cheap! The price includes not only professionalism (which is priceless), but also materials that are very expensive, but at the same time guarantee high-quality colour for a long time and no complications. In addition, you need to study the track record of the tattoo artist: where did he or she studied, what advanced training events he or she attended, look at the portfolio of works (it is advisable to see these works live), find out what equipment and pigments it works on. In this regard, I would like to appeal to all masters with a request: do not put material benefit above human health!
Permanent makeup is a procedure for introducing a dye (pigment) into the skin (in the papillary layer of the dermis), performed by a professional using special equipment, in order to improve the client’s appearance and create his unique image. The pigment is injected into the papillary layer of the dermis, where the formation of epidermal cells occurs.
First, at such a depth of injection, the risk of any complications, including scarring of the skin, is minimised.
Secondly, the pigment injected at the level of the papillary dermis will be present in the skin for a long time – from six months to five years.
There are a number of contraindications to the permanent makeup procedure.
Systemic autoimmune diseases;
violation of blood clotting;
the presence of neoplasms and a violation of the integrity of the skin in the area of the proposed work;
pregnancy and breastfeeding;
allergic reactions to anaesthetics.
