Permanent makeup is a great treatment option for anyone who wishes they woke up looking like they are ready to take on the day or are sick of having to spend time every single morning applying makeup before they feel comfortable leaving the house. It is as easy as getting a tattoo and can provide beautifully natural or dramatic results, the final look is up to you.
Permanent makeup is considered to be a minimally-invasive treatment that provides long-lasting results, and is entirely safe as long as it is performed by a reputable provider and the proper safety precautions are taken throughout the healing process. The application of permanent makeup is essentially the process of getting a tattoo, so the surface of the skin is being broken which inherently runs the risk of developing infection. This risk is incredibly small, but as with any procedure that performs any level of invasive procedures, it is very important for your safety to ensure that the provider takes the proper sanitary and health initiatives to maintain the health and safety of every single patient.
A good reputable provider will also ensure that each patient is aware and understands any aftercare instructions to decrease the risk of infection and to allow the permanent makeup to heal beautifully.
While most permanent makeup application sessions will take around 2 hours to complete, the healing process takes a bit of time as the skin has been broken.
Most patients can expect the total healing time to take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks, but this timeline can vary depending on which areas were treated and how quickly the individual heals from the procedure. Most patients will be able to enjoy the fully healed results within the first month, but it is very important that everyone follow the proper aftercare instructions for the allocated timeline to ensure that everything heals properly. Most permanent makeup providers will allow patients to receive touch-up appointments after 45 days have passed since the initial appointment.
To ensure that the area where the permanent makeup is being applied is properly prepped for the appointment, there are several things that should be avoided to help the procedure be done and heal as well as possible. Your permanent makeup provider will not be able to tattoo skin that is sunburned or has recently undergone sun damage, so it is very important to protect the area from sun exposure for the month leading up to the appointment. As well, it is important that any sort of chemical peels or laser treatments have not been performed on the area at least two months before the appointment, and that no injections of Botox or other dermal fillers have been administered within two weeks before the appointment.
Skincare products that contain AHA, retinol, and vitamins A, C, and E should be avoided in the week leading up to the permanent makeup appointment, and excessive consumption of alcohol and caffeine should be avoided in the 48 hours before the appointment. Your permanent makeup provider should be informed of any medications or underlying health conditions you may have that might interfere with the procedure or healing process such as anything causing blood thinning.
Your permanent makeup specialist will make sure to provide you with clear aftercare instructions to ensure you get the most out of your permanent makeup to enjoy the fresh pigmentation for as long as possible, but there are some general rules to keep in mind to support the healing process. For the first 10 days following the appointment, it is highly recommended that patients avoid anything that will cause them to sweat profusely, such as intense workouts, hot tubs, or steam rooms, and avoid submerging the tattooed area in water.
As well, for the first week of the healing process, patients should avoid applying any makeup or anything other than the recommended skincare products onto the freshly tattooed area. Any facial treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion should be avoided for at least one month. Additionally, any sun exposure should be avoided as much as possible, and a proper SPF should be applied to the treated areas once they have fully healed if sun exposure is unavoidable in order to prevent the pigmentation from fading prematurely.
