What is Micropigmentation?

Permanent make up is the art and science of implanting color into your skin. It is putting the right color in the right place, so you can look better naturally. Specialized instruments allow your Micropigmentation professional to place color into the layer of skin known as the dermis. Because the outermost layer on skin, the epidermis, is always shedding and renewing itself, you are looking at the color through a thin veil of skin. When a procedure is completed, the color will flake off during the healing process, lightening the overall effect. Because the color is placed in your skin and not on your skin, a more natural, softer look results. Cosmetic tattoo is a way to save time and make your life easier. Wake up every morning with perfect make up. Go for a swim, to the gym, have a run, play tennis, golf, shower or perspire, your make up won’t smudge or run of.


Reasons for Micropigmentation

  • Convenience. You just need more time.
  • Sensitive skin or allergies.
  • You wear glasses or contact lenses or had Lasik surgery.
  • Arthritis or painful hands.
  • Difficulty applying make up, or you don’t like the way it smears and disappears.
  • Aging changes in brows, lips, eyes.
  • Active, outdoor lifestyles.

How long will my make up last?

Micropigmentation last a long time, but not forever. As you become accustomed to your new make up, it’s not uncommon to want more. You will want to freshen up your new make up every couple of years. The darker the color, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin. Natural, delicate colors are oftentimes more vulnerable to the effects of sun, swimming and breakdown by body’s natural response.

How long would procedure take?

Color, shade and definition are build up over two or more if needed applications one 3 to 6 weeks apart. In this approach color can be accurately blended with person’s undertones. By proceeding cautiously and slowly, I can make adjustments in color, tones and shading. I also believe in a “less is more” approach when proceeding. It is easier to add more later, than be aggressive in the beginning.
The initial procedure  will generally take  approximately from 1, 1/2 to 2, 1/2 hours. Follow up procedure usually do not take as much time as initial procedure.

What is involved in recovery?

There may be slight swelling or redness in the skin, but not usually. You may resume your normal activities immediately after procedure. Complete healing takes 14-20 days while pigmentation matures and reaches it’s final color. Health indications play a part in pigment retention, as well as how careful the aftercare instructions are followed during the healing process. You will be given post care instructions and Vitamin A & D ointment skin protectant.

I am afraid of pain.... Do procedures hurt?

Topical anesthetics developed especially for permanent make up procedures. These creams and gels are applied to desired area before and during the procedure to assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. Because I am working under doctors supervision our office is able to provide a dental block, pain reliving injections during procedure of full lip color.
Some people describe the sensation as a "tangling" feeling. How much pain? On the scale of 1-10, you will usually be somewhere between 0-3. Rarely is anything stronger than a Tylenol necessary for discomfort and you won’t have to miss or take time off to recover.

Are there any precautions that should be taken before any procedure?

Only with the lips if you ever had blisters. I suggest that you obtain a prescription for Zovitrax or Valtrex capsules from your physician and begin taking them two days prior to the procedure ( 5 days total )

What about Sterilization, Sanitation and infections?

Please be assure that your health and safety are most important to me. Sanitary surroundings, sterile equipment, disposable needles and quality products are a must at my work.


 

Give Yourself Healing Time…

Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly, or redden, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day.

For all procedures

Please wear your normal make-up to the procedure. Bring your favorite eyebrow and eyeliner pencils as well as your favorite lip color.
Some medications and herbs can increase bleeding and swelling, i.e.; aspirin, blood thinners, diet pills, vitamin E, multi-vitamins, niacin, st john’s wart, evening primrose oil, and ginkgo-biloba. Please discontinue use of these for at least 24 hours before all procedures. However, NEVER DISCONTINUE A MEDICATION YOUR PHYSICIAN HAS RECOMMENDED WITHOUT CONSULTING HIM OR HER.
Please avoid alcohol the day of the procedure as this also increases bleeding and swelling.
If you are required to take an antibiotic pre-med before dental treatments, you must take it before any permanent makeup procedure.

Eyeliner

  • Do not wear contact lenses to the procedure or for 24 hrs after.
  • Bring sunglasses to wear home. Eyes may be light sensitive.
  • Do not dye or perm lashes for 2 days prior and for one week after.
  • Do not use eyelash curler the day of the procedure.
  • If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure
Eyebrows
  • Do not tweeze, wax or dye brows for 2 days prior and one week after.
  • Electrolysis should not be done for a week prior
Lips

Understand that Fever Blisters are a very common side effect of lip tattooing. I strongly suggest getting your doctor or dentist to prescribe an oral medication prior to any Lip procedures.
If you ever suffered from Fever Blisters or Cold Sores, you need to take Valtrex 2 days prior procedure, on a day of procedure and 2 days after procedure.
If you have had any type of lip surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent makeup procedure on the lips. Most physicians are giving a 3 week ok after lip filler injections like collagen or Restylane.
If the lip surgery involves an incision (like a lip implant), the incision needs to mature about 6 months before tattooing on top of it.

Areola

You will need to have 3x4 non stick pads, paper tape, and a tube of Lubriderm cream, fragrance fee, for sensitive skin. These products are available at most drug stores and the store brand is just fine. You will need at least 28 pads. Do not wear expensive bras or tops to your appointment as you do not want any color from your pigmentation to accidentally get on clothing after your appointment.

I look forward to working with you. If you have any questions, please call or make notes so I can discuss them with you when you arrive for your appointment.

 

For 14 days Following all procedures:

  • Do not expose treated area to the sun. (Sun exposure during the first week will lead to heat blisters on the lips, which will hurt and result in color loss.)
  • Use a clean Q-tip to apply ointment at least 3 times a day. (More often for lips.)
  • Absolutely no picking or scrubbing, this could cause pigment loss, scarring, and delayed healing. Do not pick at the epithelial crust; allow it to flake off on its own.
  • Do not soak treated area in bath, swimming pool or hot tub. Do not swim in fresh, salt or chlorinated pool water.
  • Do not expose treated area to full pressure of the water in the shower.
  • Avoid touching your procedure area. This can transmit bacteria into the area and lead to an infection.
  •  Avoid environments that would cause dirt or germs to contact area while healing.
  • 1000 mg of Vitamin C twice a day for bruising.
  • Do not smash your face in a pillow while sleeping, especially the first couple of days. The skin is drilled of holes and can tear or kink. The compressed tissue does not get adequate flow of blood and oxygen. The dependent side swells more, can ooze more and have more color loss.
  • Do not use any Ratin A or Glycolic Acids while healing.
  • Do not use Peroxide or Neosporin on ANY areas.
  • Avoid facials for at list 5 days.
  • Avoid strenuous activity for 2 days. Increased blood pressure and dilated blood vessels increases swelling and oozing. Also, sweat running into a wound stings.

Eyeliner 

Expect light to moderate swelling and redness. Apply an icepack to treated area for 10-30 minutes at a time. Ice helps reduce swelling and aids in healing. Use a clean Q-tip to apply ointment at least 3 times a day for 2-3 days following procedure.You must use NEW mascara to avoid contamination.

Eyebrows

Expect slight swelling, thickness and/or redness for 1-2 days following the procedure. You may feel itching after 2 -3 days, this is normal.
Do not scratch!  Keep lightly glossed with A&D Ointment for 2days than switch to Lubriderm, fragrance free, for sensitive skin (Walgreens, Wal-Mart) for next 4 days.  Use a clean Q-tip to apply.
Do not Dye or tweeze eyebrows for one week  after procedure.

Lip Liner/ Lip Color 

Expect moderate swelling, usually 1-2 days following the procedure. Applying ice for the first 2 hours is most important and continue throughout the day. Keep moist with A&D Ointment for next 5-7 days, than switch to chap stick. Drink through a straw for first few days.  Apply pressure to lips with a dry paper towel for 24 hours.
After the procedure, lips may appear to have too much color. After 3-4 days; the color will become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off. It will appear that you have lost all your color; however, when your lips have healed completely, the dermal layer will gradually become darker.   Lips will not have their full color until 8 weeks of healing.

Areola

You may experience slight discomfort after areola tattooing, rather like a "rug burn". If you have very little or no feeling in your reconstructed breast you will have very little tenderness.
The area will begin to feel dry and tight as it heals and exfoliates. It is important to keep the crusted tattoo moist and covered for a at least 7 days after your procedure to protect it and to keep the pigment and body fluids from oozing onto your clothes. Wear loose clothing if you are sensitive. Sports bras or a regular bra will help hold the bandages in place. Use 3x4 nonstick pads and paper tape over the tattoo to minimize sensitivity. Wash area gently; do not use abrasive clothes, let water run over it in the shower to rinse.
Apply a thin coat of Lubriderm (fragrance free, for sensitive skin) healing lotion to tattooed area. Change bandages at least in the morning and evening. Once there is no bleeding or discharge from the tattoo you can leave it uncovered for a few hours in the evening. Do not sleep on your stomach to protect the area.
Over the first 2 weeks you will have flaking of the tattoo, this is normal, just keep it moist. You may experience slight itching as it heals but try not to scratch as this can reopen the wound and cause infection.
Do not swim, sunbathe, or be in ocean or lake water for 2-3 weeks or until completely healed.
Your areolas will appear darker immediately after the procedure but will lighten as they heal.

Failure to follow post-treatment instructions may cause loss of pigment, discoloration or infection.
