During a procedure, (time will vary per procedure), an artist deposits pigment (colour) beneath the surface of your skin on the dermis layer. This is done to create your desired look in the pigmented area.It is also known as permanent Makeup. In the medical community the exact same process is referred to in more clinical sounding terms as Micropigmentation.
Most procedures are done on women, but some men opt for it, too. The ages of those who choose this solution range from 18 to those well into senior-citizen status.
Permanent makeup is different than traditional body art tattoos which are usually designed to stand out, generate attention, or make some sort of statement. The best applications are undetectable. It is meant to provide subtle support of a person's natural features. As a result, procedures should be done in a manner which blends with a person's skin tones. Most experienced professionals will advise against trying to match hair colors or using unnatural colors which do not blend with skin tones.
As for the "permanent" label, this process is again different than traditional body art tattooing. Pigments and not inks are used in permanent makeup. Thus, they do not last for a lifetime. Occasional touch ups every few years may be considered depending on a variety of factors, including personal preferences, darkness of facial features, amount of exposure to the sun, and the quality of the procedure performed.
Minor discomfort can be expected.
Everyone’s levels of fear and threshold for pain are different. I make your comfort an integral part of the service I provide.
Getting permanent makeup doesn’t hurt but the described feelings of the experience vary from person to person. Five different people can have five different sensations during their procedure. Here are some examples:
“I made it a whole lot worse in my head than it turned out to be.”
“Oh, it tickles!”
“It feels a little scratchy, like you’re using a pencil that’s not sharp enough.”
“I didn’t really feel a thing.”
“I can’t believe I actually fell asleep.”
For permanent eyeliner and permanent eyebrows, most people say having the procedure done felt like a scratching or tickling sensation. With permanent eyeliner, it is fairly common for you to want to rub an eye after the procedure. Pain is generally not an issue for most women.
For permanent lip colour, I take extra measures for your comfort. This way, you will feel absolutely minimal discomfort while we give you the luscious looking lips you’ve always wanted Fabulous INK uses a topical anaesthetic (Lidocaine) as well as a secondary anaesthetics that gives more comfort.
Not at all. You will still be able to go to work and be seen in public. Aftercare instructions will need to be followed in order for you to get the best healed result possible.
You can resume to your normal activities straight after your treatment but please be aware you may feel slightly tender and may have slight bruising or swelling in which case will usually go down within 24 hours.
For eyebrows it generally takes between 7-10days to heal and scab. Sometimes, depending on overall health, it make take up to 14days. In this time aftercare instructions will need to be followed religiously. Eyeliner takes between 3-5days and lips between 4- 6days. All cosmetic procedures take between 30-60days for true colour to show which means even after the scabs have come off, your skin is still going through a healing process.
