What exactly are Semi Permanent Cosmetics?

The term “semi permanent cosmetics” means cosmetic tattooing. Pigment is deposited into the dermal layer of the skin, giving the illusion of traditional makeup. Although eyeliner, eyebrow creation or enhancement, lip colour, and beauty marks are the most common applications, a host of other services are available from specially trained advanced professionals, including the re-pigmentation of areolas, scar camouflage, and hair imitation. Sometimes industry professionals refer to cosmetics as semi permanent make up or micro pigmentation.

How are Semi Permanent Cosmetic procedures performed?

Various tools are used to implant pigment into the skin. These tools range from a traditional tattoo machine (coil machine), to a pen-type (rotary or digital-rotary machine), or a non-mechanized manual device. The process includes an initial consultation, the pigment application procedure, and at least one finishing procedure where adjustments to the colour are made.

Can anyone benefit from Semi Permanent Cosmetics procedure?

Men and women of any age or ethnicity can benefit from a soft natural enhancement to their appearance, or an improvement to the appearance of a scar. It is especially beneficial to people who have allergies or skin sensitivities to traditional cosmetics, who are active sports or gym enthusiasts, or people who are in the public eye and want to look their best al all times, without worry.  People with disorders resulting in hair loss, or with poor vision, or who are suffering from dexterity challenges that make applying makeup difficult, find that semi permanent cosmetics offers an excellent solution for their beauty needs and their self esteem.

Are Semi Permanent Cosmetics really semi permanent?

 Semi Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered semi permanent because the colour is implanted into the skin and cannot be washed off. Even when faded, the pigment components remain in the body regardless of the external visual appearance of the tattoo. As with any tattoo, many factors will cause fading. The predominant reason for colour fading in a semi permanent cosmetic tattoo is the decomposition of pigments due to sun exposure. However, health conditions, medications, and facial products containing strong exfoliation and skin bleaching agents all can contribute to the need for maintenance. Precautions need to be taken with new treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and some laser based treatments so as not to affect your permanent cosmetic colour will need refreshing each year or so.

Which technician should I choose?

First, choose a technician by considering training, experience, portfolio and compliance with local and state laws. A consultation prior to scheduling a procedure provides the opportunity to gauge your comfort level with the technician and the facility and equipment to be used. You need to feel comfortable with your choice of providers. Times of procedures vary according to the procedure.

Are the procedures painful?

The answer to this varies, based on the individuals tolerance to discomfort, and the skills of the technician performing the service. The semi permanent cosmetic industry benefits from several methods available that assist with comfort management. There are various non-prescription and prescription level topical anesthetic cream, ointment and gel preparations. Sometimes the technician will suggest the option of using a doctor to administer local anesthetic injections. Your technician will discuss these methods with you to determine which are offered and which method is most appropriate for your procedure.

Is it safe?

In Queensland, we practice and enforce infection control practices and sterilization guidelines. All technicians must hold a current SKIN PENETRATION LICENSE. If proper guidelines are met and your technician is well trained in the procedure being performed, semi permanent cosmetic procedures should be completely safe. So few pigment reactions have been reported that many physicians suggest that a sensitivity test is not necessary, especially since allergic reactions do not occur immediately upon first exposure to a particular substance. With health standards in place, the possibility that you would have serious medical problems as a result of the semi-permanent cosmetic procedure is remote. You, too, have a role to play in your own safety. You must comply with the post-procedural instructions to help reduce any associated risks from contaminations of the newly pigmented area.

Can I resume normal activities after the procedure?

Each client is unique. Generally, there is some swelling of the tattooed area. While eyebrows may show little after effect, eyeliner and lip procedures may produce more swelling lasting from two to seventy-two hours. During the procedure, there may be some bleeding and although rare, some bruising. There is usually some tenderness for a few days. The immediate post-procedure colour is darker than you may expect after five to ten days of healing.  A good recommendation is to plan your semi permanent cosmetic procedure when you have no special events to attend for several days afterward.

What is a 'touch-up' and when do I need one?

The tattooed colour or design may require adjustment after the initial procedure. The application of semi permanent make up is a process. At least one follow-up visit should be scheduled to determine if additional work is necessary.  Following up “Finishing” visits are scheduled from four to eight weeks after the initial procedure. After the initial and follow up visits are complete, the timing for your future colour refresher depends on your personal preference but is usually at the one year anniversary. No one can really say exactly when you need or want a colour refresher, it is a personal preference and I have a special price for yearly touch-ups. Often, the traditional makeup test is the guide. That is, when you find yourself using traditional makeup to ‘touch up’ your semi permanent cosmetics, it is time for a colour refresher visit.
