Feeling Beautiful Always

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Who wouldn’t love to look beautiful always? Makeup is an essential feature of looking beautiful, but sadly, it fades away. Cosmetic tattooing, micropigmentation, permanent makeup or demographic are a way of introducing pigments into the facial skin akin to tattoos which can be as permanent as you want. Eyes and lips, the defining features of our face with regard to make up are the ones that undergo cosmetic tattooing. The process is just like getting a tattoo. A needle containing the pigment releases it into your skin. Proper sterilization, techniques and a valid license are key to safe cosmetic tattooing.

Cosmetic tattooing does fade with time and needs color enhancement or color refreshing.

The pigments are made of inert iron oxides and care should be taken that cobalt and cadmium are not used.

Getting it done

First, you will have to be checked for allergic reaction to the pigment, through a patch test.

After that, in consultation with the make-up expert, you will choose the colors.

Using a sterile surgical pen the outline of the area to be tattooed is drawn. An anesthetic gel is spread over the area to be tattooed.

Using a hollow vibrating needle the pigment is applied into the top layer of the skin. Tattooing machines that are hand built are the best. Coil machines such as a liner machine, shader and color packer are essential for any tattoo artist. Rotary machines are also used, though they are considered unsafe by some. Basically, each time the needle pierces the skin, a droplet of pigment is released into it, causing a brief stinging sensation.

The color initially will be very bright, and the surrounding tissue swollen, but the colour fades into its correct shade after a few weeks and cold compress and antibiotic creams will reduce the swelling and prevent any infection. Going out in the sun should be strictly avoided in order to prevent further color changes. Use of sunscreen during this period, with UV block is recommended.

What parts of the face or make-up are amenable to cosmetic tattooing

· Eyebrows

· Eyeliners top and bottom

· Lip liner, color and blend

· Scar camouflage and Beauty marks, hair imitation eye lash enhancement etc.

What kinds of population benefit from permanent makeup?

· People past a minimum age and those who have a normal healing mechanism

· Sportspeople who want to look their best during any sports activity, be in cycling, playing tennis etc.

· People who tend to sweat a lot

· Those who have allergies to cosmetic ingredients.

· Those who are visually challenged or have difficulty in applying make up due to physically debilitating conditions like arthritis Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis

· Busy people who do not have the time to reapply makeup.

The difference between a tattoo and a cosmetic tattoo is that permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing requires the study of facial features and skin tone. The idea here is to look naturally more attractive not as in regular tattooing which is an adornment. The procedure is basically the same, though.

Cosmetic Tattoo Correction

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Cosmetic tattooing is a way of introducing pigments into the facial skin to improve on the eyes and lips or any blemishes on the face. A needle containing the pigment releases it into the skin. The pigments are made of safe inert iron oxides and care should be taken to avoid cadmium and cobalt which are toxic.

Eyebrows, top and bottom eye lines, lip lines and skin blemishes undergo permanent makeup most often.

The problem with permanent cosmetics is that many clients choose a technician based on the permanent makeup cost and convenience of location. The work they do isn’t up to the mark. On the other hand, they claim that accidents can happen anytime and nobody can predict unfortunate circumstances. The accidents here do not deal with any infection related incidents. It is to do with the unforeseen visible results of permanent makeup.

What are they?

Color migration or what is called a blowout happens in normal tattooing and cosmetic tattooing is not an exception. Migration of color can happen anywhere the pigment is injected, but it seems that the face and certain parts of its tissue structure are prone to it, like the eyeliner. Pigment eyeliner migration is a common mishap.

Lightening of pigment – happens over time, with the use of certain skin lightening peels and creams.

Shape adjustments – a little want of symmetry for eyebrows, lips etc.

The accidents and their medical implications are another whole story.

It is preferable to do this under the supervision of a qualified tattoo artist who takes precautions. Practitioners include dermatologists, cosmetologists, tattooists and nurses. Hepatitis B and C can be contracted with equipment that has not been sterilized appropriately.

Keloid scarring, cold sores, fever blisters, allergies, adverse reactions to MRI on account of the ferromagnetic dyes are all some medical consequences of cosmetic tattooing going wrong. Allergic reactions may occur immediately or even after some years, appearing as a rash. Any pigment that is vegetable based is prone to causing allergies unlike iron oxide, which is the safest pigment.

So what happens when a cosmetic tattoo needs correction?

A cosmetic tattoo correction is required in two cases:

  • When the shape needs to be improved
  • When the color fades

In the first case, there is a product commonly known as magic color which camouflages the earlier tattoo and can be used on eyebrows, eyeliner and the lips. It is suitable for all skin tones, from dark to light.

Color correction – this may need different corrector pigments for different situations. For example, blue eyebrows will need a blue eyebrow corrector pigment, pink or orange eyebrows will need a purple eyebrow corrector pigment.

All corrections usually require more than one sitting and patience is required.

It is important to be trained in pigment colors and skin tones, since some pigment colors do not work well on some skin tones.

The other different methods of removal of cosmetic tattoos are:

  • Laser treatment
  • Dermabrasion
  • TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid)
  • Salabrasion (rubbing the skin with salt)
  • Cryosurgery
  • Excision
  • Microneedling
