Comments on the personal experience of our readers:
Maria Fedorova, aesthetic cosmetologist at the Beauty Class Clinic.
Permanent make-up (tattooing) is the introduction of dyes into the surface layers of the skin, which ensures the durability of the applied pattern. On average, permanent eyebrow makeup lasts from 6 to 18 months, in the area of the lips - from 6 to 24 months, and tattooing between the eyelashes - 1-2 years. Elena, 23 years old, Zaporozhye Has a positive experience in eyebrow tattooing and is going to make permanent lip makeup. The procedure was painful enough. Even though an anesthetic ointment was twice applied to my eyebrows and the skin around me, I felt everything - the painkillers had almost no effect on me. On the first day after the tattoo, the eyebrows were very sore, but there was no swelling or redness. On the second day, the pain subsided. I managed to avoid side reactions, but I followed all the precautions: while the tattoo was healing, I avoided the eyebrow area in everyday makeup. I was pleased with the result, I hope it will last for a long time. In a month I am going for a correction and soon I am going to make a lip tattoo. Photo of the result one week after the procedure. Expert commentary: There are various methods of permanent makeup on different areas (between the eyelashes, eyebrows, lips) and if you turn to competent specialists, they are absolutely safe. But there are some nuances: for example, the individual characteristics of the patient and the low pain threshold. In this case, pain and healing period are within normal limits: after eyebrow tattooing, crusts form within 3-5 days and gradually peel off (1-2 weeks). You do not need to use any additional funds. The main thing is not to injure the crusts and give them the opportunity to come off on their own. Anna, 52 years old, Moscow Has an unsuccessful experience in tattooing the space between the eyelashes and lips. Local anesthesia did not relieve pain. After tattooing the space between the eyelashes, the eyes were watering for a very long time, there was a feeling of a foreign body in the eye: it was impossible to read, work or just watch TV. A few days later the pain went away, but the swelling remained and the eyelids were swollen. I couldn't disguise it with makeup. The lips healed much faster, although they made me not only the contour, but painted over the main part. But most of all I was upset by the fact that after healing it turned out that the arrows were drawn to me crookedly, and the contour of the lips too. I had to go three times to correct the lashes and four times to correct the lips. And all the same, I'm not happy with my lips - a clear outline did not work out. I won't dare to make my eyebrows. The result of tattooing the space between the eyelashes after three corrections. The result of lip tattoo after four corrections. Expert's comment: Burning sensation in the eyes during tattooing of the inter-eyelash space occurs only if the anesthetic gets on the mucous membrane of the eye. In case of any discomfort during the procedure, the patient should inform the specialist about it. A slight swelling is possible the next day. It is not recommended to use decorative cosmetics for 3-5 days until the crust leaves.
During the healing period of the lips after tattooing, it is recommended to lubricate them with petroleum jelly for a week, and also to take anti-herpetic drugs according to the scheme.
If you don't like the result of tattooing even after several corrections, then it is possible to reduce it. There are 2 techniques for mixing permanent makeup: using a laser and a remover (special composition). Today, the safest and most effective laser.
Beauty department verdict: As you can see, tattooing is not the easiest procedure. But this does not make it less popular, as it solves the problem of daily makeup for a long time. Whatever tattoo you decide to do, the main thing is to choose a competent specialist and follow all the rules of rehabilitation.
