What is Cosmetic Tattooing?
Cosmetic tattooing, also called Semi-Permanent Make up or micropigmentation, is the process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin by means of a tiny, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of cosmetic makeup or to enhance the natural feature.
How long does it last?
The treatment is considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, it will fade over time and may need a touch up every 1-3 years. Frequency will vary depending on a number of factors, which are: The pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas. Please note the final results can not be guaranteed as each individuals unique skin type will hold the pigments differently and break down at different rates. The tattooed hair strokes tend to have a more crisp look once healed on dry skin compared to more blurry strokes on oily skin.
Touch ups are normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, as our faces are constantly shedding and regenerating new skin. Each procedure requiring 2 visits, the initial procedure and the follow up procedure that comes 6-8 weeks after healing.
Can I get my eyebrows microbladed if they were previously tattooed?
I do cover ups of old method/others work. However these appointments require a consultation to make sure the previous work is coverable. I also have a specific package for these types of brows because they require more sessions when covering other pigment done in other methods or by another individual other then myself.
Two treatments are usually needed, at least 6 weeks apart. Sometimes just one treatment is sufficient, but a touch up appointment is offered with your first session if needed. With most procedures, the color looks dramatically lighter after the first week of healing. Some clients prefer this, while others prefer a bolder look. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, that is what our touch up session is for.
How many treatments are needed?
Your semi-permanent makeup will appear darker and bigger than expected for the first week. They will gradually lighten during the healing process. Which will happen in stages. One being the fact that your brows will appear different tones in areas as you shed the flakes. Do not panic, this is natural and means they are healing properly. Let them flake and fall off on their own.
How will I look immediately after? What is the healing process?
Pain can cause false labor and pregnancy tends to make the body highly sensitive. Therefore as a precaution to any complications I do not do cosmetic or traditional tattoos on pregnant women.
