5 Benefits of getting permanent make up

The use of permanent make up products has risen significantly in the past few years, thanks to its ability to save time and effort. However, some people can understandably be a little daunted by the prospect, especially when hearing the word ‘permanent’. In fact, permanent’ make up products are actually just very long lasting, and so there is no need to worry about entering into a lifelong commitment you may later regret, as with a regular tattoo! To put your mind at ease if you are considering the benefits of permanent make up, we have answered a few of the most common questions.

How do permanent make up treatments work?

The trained artist will use a permanent make up digital machine designed for cosmetic tattooing, with a needle that is similar to those you will have seen in a regular tattooing environment. Following a consultation to determine the best shades and tones to match your requirements and to discuss the style and look you would prefer, the procedure involves implanting minute pigment particles into the reticular layer of skin, or around 1mm below the skin’s surface.

Are permanent make up products safe?

All pigments used in these types of procedures are tested and approved for safety. However, just like regular tattooing or any mildly invasive medical procedure, it is important that all the equipment and needles are sterile and the workspace is clean, so as long as correct sterilisation and hygiene practices are adhered to, there is no need to worry.

Do permanent make up products hurt?

Everybody has different pain thresholds, but most people will feel very little discomfort or pain due to the application of a numbing agent before the procedure begins. The needles used in this type of procedure are extremely fine, so there is rarely bleeding. For anyone that has their eyebrows threaded, it is almost certain to be less painful than that!

How long do permanent make up products last?

How long permanent make up lasts can vary greatly depending on a number of different factors such as the person’s skin type, but it can last up to five years, at which time another procedure will offset any fading that may have taken place. Colour boost treatments are recommended in the interim, as they will keep the make up looking fresh and vibrant.

Hopefully this has answered some of the pressing questions you have had regarding permanent make up products. Although this should have convinced you that it is not intimidating as it can seem, it is also not a treatment to enter into lightly. We advise you to do a little more research, and think about whether it is the right fit for you. If you think it is, you can look forward to the end of your make up woes — it will be perfect every time!
