Is Permanent Makeup Right For You?

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Tuesday, April 05, 2016

cosmetic tattooCosmetic tattooing is a unique specialty within the tattoo arena. Cosmetic tattooing is the process of applying permanent makeup. It can be used to hide disfigurements or sketch in hair where none exists. Cosmetic tattooing can help camouflage white scarring by using flesh-colored inks.

For those people who have no eyebrows or eyelashes due to alopecia it can be a miracle, adding permanent eyebrows and eyeliner. Or the miracle can be simply having an extra 15 minutes in the morning.

Permanent Makeup May Be a Gamble

For the most part, clients have cosmetic tattooing done for purely cosmetic reasons. This procedure is primarily appealing to those people who are tired of reapplying makeup every day or would prefer never being seen without their makeup.  This permanent pigmentation can basically be applied anywhere that eyeshadow and rouge can go: cheeks, lips, eyelids, and eyebrows.

It is the perfect solution for people who want to wake up ready for the day with makeup in place or for those who don’t wish to sweat their makeup off in a gym. For women who want a permanent solution to overly-thin eyebrows or undefined lip-lines, cosmetic tattooing can do the trick.

The idea of not having to purchase expensive cosmetics again is another point in its favor. Not having to worry about smeared mascara or too pale lips ever again would be nice, right?

But permanent pigmentation is definitely risky business.

Despite choosing a shade carefully, the actual color can end up quite different. Being forced to wear a shade which is just wrong for your skin coloring every single day would be devastating. As with any form of tattooing, nightmare stories abound.

An unskilled technician applying heavy-handed colors with too thick of lines, will make the client look clownish. But even if the technician is highly skilled and applies the makeup with a subtle hand, there is a big chance that when fashions change the client may come to regret the color palette they’ve chosen. A vibrant permanent eyeshadow will suddenly look outdated when neutrals are trending.

If you are a victim of a bad permanent makeup job, or have simply come to regret getting it done, there are a few solutions.

An obvious solution, is to cover the problem area with thick, flesh-colored makeup and then apply lip-liner, eyebrow pencil, etc. over the top of it. Needless to say, this rather defeats the whole purpose of getting the tattoo in the first place since you are now applying more makeup instead of less.

Another option is to find a truly talented tattoo artist who really understands how makeup should be worn. They might be able to alter a shade you are unhappy with or use flesh colors to subtly mask mistakes or too garish of colors.

Quick tip: Homemade remedies such as salt abrasion shouldn’t even be considered because of the risk of permanent scarring.

Although, there is one permanent solution which has a high rate of success and can help give you back the face nature intended. A Q-Switched ND:YAG laser can remove permanent makeup. Of course, the face is a delicate place to treat and precautions need to be taken. Eye protection is necessary when eliminating derma-pigmentation near the eye area. And many dermatologists shy away from directing laser energy too close to the eye, making eyeliner and eyeshadow pigmentation difficult to remove.
