Many people use makeup daily. And who wouldn’t want to wear fabulous red lips every day? If you are one of those who can not leave the house without color on the lips, surely you have thought about making permanent lip makeup.
But before making such an important decision it is elementary that you know everything about this modern practice.
First of all let’s start at the beginning:
1 What is permanent lip makeup?
Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, is a cosmetic procedure that involves permanently applying color to the lips to eliminate the need to apply makeup. It is a procedure that many people who enjoy makeup, but suffer from allergies, opt for.
The process involves applying the desired pigment through the tattoo technique to the skin covering the lips. To have the desired result, several sessions are usually done. In the same way, it is recommended to retouch the pigment every 5 years.
2 What are the benefits of permanent lip makeup?
Many people have been delighted with the procedure. With micropigmentation you can look from lips of your favorite color 24 hours a day, without having to constantly apply makeup, suffer mishaps such as rolling makeup or getting your teeth dirty.
3 What are the disadvantages of permanent lip makeup?
Like any permanent procedure, lip tattooing is a lifelong commitment. Many people have seen the unpleasant situation of cataloging the procedure as “a serious mistake” since they have not enjoyed the desired results and are forced to pay for a laser procedure – a very expensive and painful procedure – to recover their lips naturally. On the other hand, many people eventually get tired of the color applied.
Complications may also arise during the application of micropigmentation. Like any tattoo, some risks such as bleeding, swelling, pain and even infection are expected to occur if the area has not been properly sterilized. Also, if the procedure is not performed properly, scars and keloids may remain.
4 Where can I perform permanent lip makeup?
There are many aesthetic centers that perform the procedure. Although many of these aesthetic centers are certified to perform these types of procedures, and many do do a good job, it is best to go to a trusted dermatologist. Dermatologists are medical specialists of the skin, and although they have higher rates for the procedure, they are the ones who guarantee good advice and a good performance of micropigmentation.
5 What is the cost of applying permanent lip makeup?
Costs vary from country, city and even cosmetic centers. The cost depends on the experience of the technician performing the procedure and how many sessions are necessary for the desired color.
6 Is it a painful procedure?
This depends on each person’s pain tolerance. Before starting the procedure, the technician must apply a cream that anesthesias the area. However, like any tattoo, some discomfort is expected during the application and in the days to come. Remember that the skin on your lips is particularly sensitive, so be prepared for some discomfort.
