I wouldn’t be wrong if I said that makeup plays an important role in most people’s morning routines, would I? For most people, makeup is like the Loren to their Hardy, something they can’t live without. This brings me to an intriguing fact: the entertainment industry has played a significant role in the introduction of makeup into most of our lives. We’ve learned everything from the no-makeup look to the glam look thanks to our fellow actors and actresses.
With that said, a component of make-up, such as cosmetic tattooing, has now taken centre stage in our lives.
In this article, we will talk about permanent and semi-permanent makeup, as well as what to expect during the procedure
While both have long-term effects, their duration may differ. “Permanent makeup is the implantation of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, which is a deeper level than just the surface or superficial layer.”
“The majority of the equipment used in the process is digital. “Semi-permanent makeup implants pigment into the skin’s superficial layer, and the process is primarily manual.” Because the ink is applied by hand, the duration of semi-permanent makeup depends on how heavy-handed or light-handed your technician was when applying the pigment.
The major reason would be so that you could save time. Especially if you are someone who does makeup every day. Like, wouldn’t it be great if you could cut your time getting ready in half? Or, even better, getting no makeup, makeup finish even after you wake up. The majority of procedures performed are on areas such as eyeliner, lip colour, lash enhancements, and so on.
If you ask about the time, it doesn’t take long. It takes 1-2 hours depending on the procedure and which part of the body you are having your cosmetic tattoo done on. And don’t worry about the design because the technician will sketch it out for you ahead of time! Your approval means it’s showtime 😉
I’m not going to sugarcoat it, but YES it does! We are referring to microblading or uncontrolled needling! So be prepared for some discomfort and pain. But, as the saying goes, “no pain, no gain…” The light at the end of the tunnel is that numbing agents can be used to reduce future pain. Will not completely eliminate your needle rush, but it will help.
If you mean safe, consider it similar to getting a tattoo. All of the risks of allergy, rash, itchiness, and so on apply here. It would be best if you first recommended a doctor to learn about your skin and possibly gain an advantage in this procedure. I mean, anything that helps keep risks at bay is a good thing, right? There are also various coloured inks used in this procedure, so be careful which ink you choose based on your skin type, as some people have reactions to coloured inks.
In terms of cost, expect to pay anywhere between 300 and 1000 euros, depending on where you have it done and the look you want. Experienced technicians can even provide you with the natural look that everyone desires.
It takes about a week to recover, and I must warn you that vigorous exercises, such as core exercises and swimming, are strictly prohibited until you have recovered. Tanning is not recommended during the healing process. Also, expect some redness or swelling around your tattooed area during the healing process. But don’t worry, it will most likely go away within 24 hours or so. If the swelling or redness lasts longer than expected, see your doctor right away.
So, here is everything you need to know about permanent and semi-permanent makeup.
