Lip and eyebrow tattoo: before and after
We ask professionals all the main questions about tattooing and microblading and decide: do we need makeup that lasts a year or longer? Spoiler alert: tattooing is more than lazy makeup. It also allows you to correct burn marks and scars.
How is modern permanent makeup different from old techniques? Are crooked arrows and leaden eyebrows a thing of the past?
The main mistake of the masters is that they inject the pigment too profoundly. As a result, the colour of the tattoo distorted, the eyebrows stop growing (due to damage to the hair follicles). Some experts generally convinced that things were better in the 1990s. Fewer specialists were, but they were more experienced. However, there is good news: modern devices allow masters to work accurately in the upper layers of the skin. Such tattooing lasts less but looks more natural. But the shape of the arrows still depends on the hand of a specialist.
What is tattooing used for today?
The most popular procedures are
filling in the lips with pigment to make them brighter,
applying shaded arrows to the eyelids and tattooing the space between the eyelashes.
With tattooing, they mask dark circles, even out the face’s tone and even create a blush effect. But cosmetologists do not recommend the latter: peels contraindicated for skin with tattooing. “A new trend is the visual correction of the shape of the nose (“subcutaneous contouring”) and the creation of freckles. – says Olha Pokatilova, head of the Face Figurati studio of permanent makeup, “A separate direction is aesthetic derma pigmentation, correction of scars, vitiligo, restoration of areolas after breast augmentation and even imitation of hair in case of baldness.”
Isn’t it dangerous to do “lashline”?
“The fear is connected with the fact that the pigment is injected close to the eyeball. It really cannot but seem like something unpleasant and dangerous. However, it is this procedure that is easiest and most painless to do:
the master uses two types of anesthesia
and holds the eyelid firmly while working,” explains Olha.
Lip tattooing is said to lead to herpes. Is it true?
According to statistics, 90% of the world’s population has the herpes virus in a “dormant” state, and whether it appears or not depends on your immunity. Any invasive procedure on the lips’ mucous membrane (for example, correction with fillers), and not just tattooing, can provoke its appearance. Usually, on the day of the procedure, for prevention, it is advised to take an antiviral drug – the doctor will recommend which one.
How long does permanent makeup last?
one to three years. “Service life” depends on your age, skin type, climate, application technique. The eyelids’ permanent makeup lasts the longest (from two and a half to ten years). Least of all – tattooing eyebrows (fading in the sun) and lips (we often bite them).
To help your permanent makeup last longer, use daytime SPF products. The sun’s rays discolour the pigment, making it dull.
What if the Cosmetic Tattoo is brighter than you wanted?
Easy to fix: the master can soften the shade. However, the right specialist always makes makeup a little lighter than the client’s wishes so that later, if necessary, “increase the brightness” is still more comfortable. Worse, if, for example, you do not like the shape of your eyebrows, you will have to get used to it or remove the pigment with a laser. Before the procedure, discuss the form in detail with the master, ask them to draw – right on the face, with a pencil.
How to understand that a master is a professional?
“Look at his work, flip through Instagram (he definitely posts photos of his work – or have you seen it somewhere before?). So you will understand whether your artistic vision coincides and whether the master does not make all the eyebrows “like a carbon copy” (this is an indicator of a low level). The office must be sterile because we are talking about an invasive procedure, which means there is a risk of infection,” says Olga, a permanent makeup master at the Face Figurati studio. Be suspicious of too low prices: cosmetic tattoo makeup, for example, cannot cost less than 400 AUD in Melbourne today.
Pay attention to what pigments the masterworks with and how many of them. If there are three of them in the arsenal: red, black, brown, you will not like the result, to put it mildly (a good master has at least 20 of them). Pigments tested over the years are produced by PermaBlend, Biotek, Ami, Nouveau Contour, Colour. But if the master says that he orders pigments on “Aliexpress”, then politely say goodbye to him.
What are the contraindications of Cosmetic Tattoo?
“Contraindications for permanent makeup are divided into absolute and short-term. Absolute: pregnancy and breastfeeding (due to the high level of prolactin, healing will be very slow), acute inflammation, cancer, poor blood clotting, the tendency to scarring. Short-term: any diseases (even a slight runny nose) and the period of menstruation, when blood clotting decreases, “explains Olga Pokatilova.
