Permanent makeup has increasingly become a go-to solution for individuals looking to save time and effort on their daily beauty routines. If you're considering getting permanent makeup for the first time, here are some key points to keep in mind.
Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing where pigment is implanted into the upper layers of the skin to achieve a makeup-like effect. It's essential to understand the procedure you're getting, whether it's microblading, permanent eyeliner, or permanent lip makeup.
The right technician can make a significant difference in your permanent makeup experience. Choose a certified permanent makeup professional who has ample experience, positive reviews, and a portfolio you can review.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and blood-thinning medications for at least 24 hours before the procedure. These can affect the pigment's ability to settle into the skin properly.
Proper aftercare is crucial for optimal results and to prevent any complications. Your technician will provide you with specific aftercare instructions tailored to your procedure.
While permanent makeup can enhance your natural beauty, it's important to have realistic expectations. Discuss your desired results with your technician to ensure they align with what permanent makeup can achieve.
While called "permanent," this type of makeup usually lasts from one to three years depending on the procedure, your skin type, and lifestyle. You will need touch-ups to maintain the look.
