Permanent makeup – benefit or harm?
The procedure of permanent makeup in recent years has evolved and changed. Previously, the tattoo was made so that it was impossible not to notice on the face – bright eyebrows, underlined lip contour. Today, naturalness is a priority, so many new techniques have emerged that are always popular – for example, feathering and “Smokey Aiz.” Permanent make-up allows not only to improve appearance, but to correct some aesthetic imperfections – to mask postoperative scars, the effects of skin diseases (for example, vitiligo), to minimize age-related changes. On the pros and cons of the modern permanent – in the material Valeria Barchenko.4 arguments “for” permanent makeup
The advantages of the procedure of permanent makeup can be attributed, above all, its economic benefits. What is the average color paint on the eyebrows? From the power of 2 weeks, and you need to go to the beauty salon again and put them in order. Eyebrow tattoo will delight you much longer (up to 5 years), while the master will select your color and make the perfect shape. Permanent makeup periodically needs correction – it depends primarily on the individual characteristics of the body and metabolism. If necessary, it can be done every 2-2.5 years. The arrows above the eyes can last up to 10 years, tattooing lips – 2-3 years. And all this time you will not need to spend money on cosmetics, get up in the morning to do makeup – you will always look beautiful. You will not experience discomfort on the beach, in the pool or in the morning after the date.
Another obvious advantage of the procedure of permanent makeup is its painlessness. Even making a tattoo of such a hypersensitive zone as the areola of the nipples, for example, after augmentation mammoplasty, you will not feel pain. Of course, you can ask a tattoo specialist to use anesthetic cream if you are in doubt or if you have an increased sensitivity threshold, but in general this procedure does not require any special anesthesia.
The procedure of permanent makeup does not have a large list of contraindications. This is another argument in favor of this procedure. It is not recommended to be done during pregnancy and the lactation period, with blood diseases, the propensity for scarring, with uncompensated diabetes. With care, permanent makeup is assigned to clients who have a history of stroke or heart attack. For such patients, permission of the attending physician is required.
Another plus of the permanent makeup procedure is that it can always be removed, in some cases, to “clean skin”. To remove permanent makeup, use remuver or neodymium YAG laser. The last option is a priority if you want to get rid of the unsuccessfully made tattoo permanently, because it allows you not immediately, in a few sessions, to remove what you do not like or tired of. It happens that a woman of 10 years old walks with arrows above her eyes, and then realizes that this makeup is not very suitable for her, and you could try something new, more relevant, for example, tattooing eyelids with shading. To do this, of course, she must first carry out the removal procedure, and then make a new permanent makeup.
How to choose a master
Perhaps the main drawback of this procedure can be called the wrong choice of specialist. Because it is precisely this that most often leads to the negative effects of permanent makeup – irregular shooters, incorrectly shaped eyebrows, etc. Keep in mind that important fact that tattoo masters and permanent makeup specialists from specialized clinics work with different pigments. In the latter, they are softer, more natural, better able to be removed in case of failure, but at the same time they require correction from time to time. The choice is, of course, yours, but if we talk about removal, when the red and green hues were present in the tattoo paint, it is very difficult to remove.
Before you decide on permanent makeup, you need to carefully look at the portfolio of masters, learn about the capabilities of the clinic or salon, where you want to go, how big the experience is with the master. Today, many experts are instagram, where they post photos of their work. But not only in the photo you need to pay attention. Be sure to read the reviews and, if possible, communicate with the clients of this wizard. In my opinion, it is best to look for the wizard in the old fashioned way, using the recommendations of his acquaintances who were at his reception – so you can personally see the result of the work, listen to a review from the “first mouth”. If you liked the portfolio, you did not see negative comments, go to the consultation. A good specialist will not talk about what a good fellow he is, but will show certificates that he can provide this service and talk to you about you.
