Permanent Makeup Pre and Post Care Instructions

What to Expect After a Permanent Makeup Procedure

The Day After: When your new makeup is completed it will appear too dark. This is temporary. You are seeing pigment in both layers of your skin (epidermis and dermis). The top layer of your skin sheds and renews itself every few days and with this natural process the pigment in the top layer will peel off. This initial DARK look will not last. Only the color in the dermis (second layer of skin) will be long lasting. If you are happy with your new permanent cosmetic color and darkness when you leave your first session, then you will be unhappy within one to three weeks. For this reason it is important for you to be patient and let your skin heal.

The Process: Permanent makeup is a process of carefully implanting microscopic colorants into the dermis. In cases of camouflaging scars and corrective makeup the goal can only be achieved through repeated applications and refinements to the previous applications after healing. The goal of the first application is to “saturate” the desired area to be pigmented. Your second visit is to shape, smooth irregularities and enhance the color of your permanent makeup.

Most people usually want MORE makeup rather than LESS

This is common because it is better to apply LESS makeup during the first session than TOO MUCH. A rule of thumb is: Eyebrows lose 10% of their original color, Eyeliner loses 10% of their original color. On your second visit, color is layered into the “base” color applied in the first session. Irregularities, color and “holes” are corrected and filled.

Healing: For the first 2-3 days following eyebrows and eyeliner applications you will have swelling, redness and tenderness in the area of your newly applied makeup. It is important to pamper your new makeup and keep a protective veil of Vaseline over the affected area. This prevents scab formation and drying, which can “lift out” the newly implanted color. Always wear sunglasses and sunscreen when outside.

Touch-Up Visit: This is exactly what the name implies. Your permanent makeup will more likely than not need to be touched up within the first year following your initial two visits. The goal of this visit is to fill in any areas that need enhancement. Often this is areas of eyeliner or eyebrow makeup that have healed with a loss of pigment. Every person is unique and we cannot predict how your makeup will appear. Rest assured that I will do my very best to make you happy with your investment in permanent makeup. Your cooperation is vital.
