HOW LONG DOES THE TATTOO KEEP ITS APPEARANCE? DIFFERENT NUMBERS ARE TRANSLATED EVERYWHERE​

When carrying out the primary permanent makeup with subsequent correction, the result will last for about a year. That is, you need updates about once a year. For girls who have already made several updates, the permanent tattoo sometimes lasts longer: from 1 to 2 years. In all cases, it is impossible to determine in advance how long the tattoo will last. It depends on the correct care, and on metabolism, and lifestyle. For example, those who often sunbathe in the sun will likely need an update much earlier. If the renewal is not done, some permanent makeup marks can remain for years (sometimes up to 3 years). Permanent makeup that lasts a lifetime does not exist. However, this gives you freedom of choice and the ability to periodically change the image!

Why is the correction done only a month or two after the tattoo?

This is exactly how much time it takes for the complete process of tissue regeneration, which takes place both on the surface of the skin and in its layers hidden from the eyes. Correction made prematurely will result in the rejection of most of the pigment. In addition, it is impossible to re-injure the skin that has not yet completely healed, this can complicate the healing process.

What will happen to the tattoo in a year and later?

Cosmetic tattoo (Permanent Meup) will gradually become less saturated. The process often begins after 1 year – 1.5 years, but the timing is always individual. The beginning of such changes signals the need to renew cosmetic tattooing. The skin is constantly regenerating, therefore such a need is quite natural. how eyebrow tattoo looks like in a year you can see in our article.

Is the close location of blood vessels to the skin a contraindication for permanent makeup?

It is not an absolute contraindication, but it complicates the procedure. In work of the master interferes with the blood protruding in the process of introducing the pigment. with the usual arrangement of blood vessels, no. However, I use modern anesthetic drugs, which include adrenaline, which constrict blood vessels, therefore, if desired, tattooing is possible.

My friend advised me an ointment to speed up the healing process, will it harm?

You can be calm because I am no less interested in you both in a successful result and in safety. The procedures are carried out in a medical office that has a medical license and is subject to rigorous checks every month and by the relevant authorities.

How much does an initial consultation for your studio cost?

Is it possible to remove low-quality tattoo with something other than a laser?

You can remove the tattoo with a neodymium laser or a chemical way – remover. However, the latter is not used for eyelid tattoo removal. A remover is sometimes used in conjunction with a laser to remove lip and eyebrow tattoo. Sign up for a consultation with the master to find the best way.

How is the procedure carried out?

First, the future shape is determined, excess hairs are removed. The periobral area is treated with local anesthetic. Next, the master draws the hairs with a special tool along the drawn contour.

Otherwise, due to painful sensations, the Client will often flinch, and the master will not be able to control the whole process and achieve compliance with the desired shape.

Can I do permanent makeup if I have problem skin?

The range of problems and their manifestations on the skin is quite wide, so I recommend that you consult with a dermatologist before getting a tattoo.

What is the cost of a tattoo renewal?

The so-called refresh is a complete tattoo procedure. The cost of permanent make-up, performed both the first time and any subsequent time, is almost the same. To save money, just follow my promotions and discounts! If the word update means fixing poorly performed makeup, then please note: I do not always undertake such work. In most cases, it is simply impossible to correct mistakes without completely removing the tattoo. Therefore, firstly, try to initially choose an experienced master. And, secondly, if you are still disappointed, send me your photos: I will see what can be done in a particular case, and I will definitely give a reasoned answer.

This is a normal healing process. Around the third week, you will see the pigment. recovery takes place in stages, and the result can be assessed only after 1-2 months. You can find out more about the healing period by reading the articles on our website.

I am not happy with the tattoo done in another studio. Can you cover the dark color with the flesh color and make a normal tattoo on top?

Unfortunately, this method does not help. Rather, it can help you get two or three-colored eyebrows that will upset you even more than the existing ones. Most likely, you will have to remove the unsuccessful tattoo, wait for complete healing, and only then do a new one. At a distance, it usually takes 3 to 6 months.

Can I get a tattoo if I am breastfeeding?

Yes. The procedure is safe for nursing mothers. We use anesthetic gel approved for use during lactation. the drug is practically not absorbed into the bloodstream and does absolutely no harm to your health and the health of the baby. Breastfeeding also does not affect the success of the procedure.

On what day, after permanent makeup, can I leave the house in a standard form? Will I have to take a vacation?

3-5 days after the procedure, slight peeling appears on the skin, which lasts about a week. The general appearance of this practice does not suffer from this. Therefore, the cosmetic tattoo does not create obstacles to leaving home and working in Melbourne and Australia.

I have heard of cases where the pigment completely or almost completely disappears. Is this possible?

This happens in about 5% of my clients and successfully copes during the correction. There have been no cases of complete removal of pigment even after correction in my practice. All clients should take care of the skin after the procedure, directly related to the successful result.

You say that you will have to renew your permanent makeup in a year, and have I been told about the results that last for three years or more?

After this time, only traces or remnants of the tattoo may be visible. The only way to prolong its life is to inject the pigment very profoundly. But the tattoo will look unnatural at the same time. Usually, it is blue eyebrows and eyeliner. I do not use such methods of prolonging the life cycle of permanent makeup, as they are at the expense of aesthetics. We recommend that you look at the photos of my studio’s work and make a reasonable choice between an artistic tattoo, emphasising the dignity of natural beauty, or blue eyebrows, which lasts longer but worsens your image.

My friend's tattoo eventually turned blue (red). How to prevent such transformations?

It happens with the wrong selection of shades and low-quality pigments and deeply embedded in the skin surface. Therefore, I only work with pigments tested for years and only with certified ones and try them on myself. When a master uses, for example, only brownish-red colours, the permanent makeup can then turn red. These colours need to add to one or more drops to mix. Deep black turns into blue (except for the eye area, the pigment turns into a dark graphite colour). 

 An excessively bright tattoo is also a big mistake because unlike the eyebrows’ insufficient brightness or width. Which can’t change during the correction. In sporadic cases, the pigment unexpectedly significantly changes colour after the procedure, but only a few persons from thousand of them encounter this.

In my many years of practice, there has not been a single case with a change in pigment shades, so choose the right masters for cosmetic tattooing. After all, a face is the first thing a person looks at when communicating.

After the crusts have disappeared, the pigment has disappeared! the skin is the same as it was before the procedure! have to redo everything?

This is a normal healing process. Around the third week, you will see the pigment. recovery takes place in stages, and the result can be assessed only after 1-2 months. You can find out more about the healing period by reading the articles on our website.

Having done a cosmetic tattoo, will I have to renew it every 1-1.5 years all my life? what if I don't renew?

The tattoo will gradually lose its original saturation, and then completely disappear. Renewal is a voluntary procedure. Of course, most girls do it, because you don’t want to go back to regular makeup after permanent makeup. Just being perfect in any situation is very nice!

How many days will I have to use the ointment after cosmetic tattoo?

The features of care depend on the technique of permanent makeup. The master will advise you in detail either, you can call us or write a question on our website.

Is it possible to remove the tattoo right away or will you have to wait for a while?
