About permanent makeup. Part1.
Someone loves and wants to spend time and money using decorative cosmetics, while someone simply does not have time for this. And even during the holidays, because of swimming and summer heat, it is especially difficult to use makeup. How to stay beautiful 24 hours a day, regardless of the season?
Introducing Questions and Answers about Permanent Makeup.
Permanent makeup is done in the same way as a regular tattoo, but with one important difference. A harmless pigment, which is injected under the skin, penetrates to a depth of only 1 mm, while with a tattoo it penetrates much deeper. Accordingly, the period of “wearing” is also different: a tattoo can remain for a lifetime, and permanent makeup disappears over time.
What can be done with permanent makeup and how much does it cost?
Permanent lip tattoo will improve the lip’s colour, shape, contour, eliminate asymmetry and even visually add volume to the lips. And you will also be relieved of the constant need to use lipsticks and, accordingly, the cost of purchasing them. The contour + shading scheme emphasises the contour of the lips and their natural colour. With the “contour + full fill” scheme, the shape and colour of the lips can be completely changed. Depending on the type of makeup in the salon, the work can cost from $370 to $1500.
Permanent eyelid makeup looks like eyeliner with a pencil or liquid liner and is most often done in black (although if you wish, you can make a line in blue, green, brown). Accentuating the “lash edge” of the upper eyelid makes the eyes more expressive and the lashes appear fluffier. The “arrow” on the upper eyelid will help give the eye a nice almond shape. Drawing the lower eyelid is not suitable for everyone, because it can visually narrow the eyes and lower the level of the eye. In addition, unfortunately, it can lead to the deterioration of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles.
The permanent eyebrow tattoo is a suitable solution if the eyebrows are completely light or simply do not grow. In addition, you can completely change the shape of the eyebrows to your liking. Many Hollywood stars do it.
The soft brow shading technique is preferred because it gives a natural look as if the brows were simply tinted with a pencil. The hair’s technique will help mask the scars or scars in the brow area, but the result will be a rather artificial brow. To make an eyebrow tattoo in the salon costs from $400 to $1200.
Drawing the upper eyelid is similar to pencil eyeliner.
Stages of the procedure:
First, there is a consultation with the master, during which you discuss the sketch of the drawing, technique, colour and other necessary issues. Do not hesitate to ask any questions about what bothers you, because you decide on a rather serious procedure. It will not be superfluous to ask the master for his diploma or certificate, experience and portfolio: nowadays, unfortunately, there are many short-term courses that teach anyone.
The sketch is drawn by the master, but you and no one else approves it. The master has no right to insist on his options if you are dissatisfied.
Pain relief is a necessary part of this complex procedure, take it seriously and be sure to mention if you are allergic to any drug. If you are not sure that you can safely endure the procedure, insist on anaesthesia, even if you are assured that everything will be painless. Due to the anaesthesia, swelling occurs after the procedure, so if you want to avoid them, you will have to endure without anaesthesia.
The duration of the procedure of different types of permanent makeup depends on its complexity and varies. For example, lip tattoo can be performed from 60 minutes to 3 hours, so it is better to be patient. For eyebrows, the duration will be approximately 30 minutes – 2 hours, for eyes, from 20 minutes to 1 hour. Sometimes you may not be able to do it in one go and a second appointment will be required.
Permanent makeup can significantly reshape lips
After the session, the treated areas become quite red and swollen, there is swelling from anaesthesia and crusts of dry skin, which in no case should be peeled off. Proper home care is necessary, about which your tattoo master should tell you about in detail. It includes the need to use special wound-healing preparations, which must be applied regularly until the treated area heals. You should wash your face with clean warm water without the use of cosmetics. It is not recommended sunbathing and steam your face. Herpes prevention is required after the lip procedure. On average, the healing period after permanent makeup procedure last for 3-5 days, sometimes longer. With proper aftercare, in about 5 days, you will already look presentable. Masters believe that the final result of the procedure can be assessed only after 28-30 days.
