Permanent Makeup

Don’t you get tired of putting on your makeup, day in and day out? Wouldn’t it be nice to be ready in just a few minutes, rather than half an hour or more? If so, permanent makeup might be the right cosmetic treatment for you. Dr. Acosta of Primary Skin Care & Aesthetics can enhance your natural beauty with permanent makeup as he has done for numerous women all over Los Angeles.

What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic procedure that employs tattoos on the face to produce designs that are similar to typical makeup. Since tattoos permanently embed pigments into the dermis of the skin, makeup on the face will never be erased, unless removed professionally. This service includes eyelining and applying other colors to the facial skin of the lips, eyelids, and other parts of the face.

Who are good candidates for permanent makeup?

Good candidates for permanent makeup are women who desire to put on makeup, yet cannot do so because of allergic reactions to makeup components or due to certain health conditions, including vision problems, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions that restrict the hands from moving precisely. Permanent makeup can also be used to conceal scars on the face. During your consultation with Dr. Acosta, he will discuss with you the benefits of permanent makeup and if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

What can you expect during a permanent makeup procedure?

The process of applying permanent makeup is just like tattooing. It requires proper sterilization and precise techniques on the part of the healthcare provider. Before you are tattooed, a patch test will be done to ensure that you have no allergic reactions to the pigment that will be used. A makeup artist will guide you in choosing the right colors for your skin. The technician will then use a surgical pen to sketch your desired appearance into the specific area on the face. Dr. Acosta uses a hollow, vibrating needle to apply the pigment onto the skin’s surface. You can expect slight stinging every time the needle penetrates the skin.

What can you expect after a permanent makeup procedure?

You can expect the color of the permanent makeup to fade into its permanent shade after approximately three weeks. You may notice the color to be shiny and dark at first, but this will fade over time. Apply a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling, and use antibiotics as prescribed to reduce your risk of infection.
