Technician Talk and Permanent Makeup FAQ’s

What are permanent cosmetics?

Most cosmetic pigments, or micropigments, are made from a dry, powdery and insoluble substance that is usually pulverized. When suspended in a liquid vehicle, the substance becomes a paint, or type of ink. BioTouch pigments come in a variety of colors specially formulated with iron oxide, an ingredient safe for the skin; pigments made from organic ingredients, such as vegetables, have a high risk of carrying bacteria and causing allergic reactions. Because the color is implanted just underneath the dermis layer of the skin, the resulting shade is soft and muted. The most common procedures for which permanent cosmetics are used are eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner. 

How permanent is it?

The duration of permanent or semi-permanent makeup depends on the depth of needle penetration during the procedure. Skin type and after-care are determining factors in achieving lasting results. Clients need to follow all instructions carefully so that their makeup color can last several years. Touch-ups are recommended every few years as necessary.

How safe is it?

The art of tattooing has been practiced for centuries. Pigments used on the face are made of iron oxide and carbon based ingredients. These compounds are naturally present in the human body. Strict sanitation and sterilization procedures are enforced to reduce the possibility of infection or contamination, but the client also has the responsibility of keeping the treated area clean while it’s healing. Clients should also advise their doctor immediately if they plan to undergo any other procedures, such as laser treatments, Botox, dermabrasion, peels, etc.

Are there risks?

As with any procedure where topical ointments or anesthetics are used, risks may occur if the patient is allergic to certain ingredients containing ‘caine’ such as lidocaine. Most clients however, would know if there has been any previous reaction during routine dental work. Other risks may have to do with the technician’s level of expertise or experience. A fanning or bleeding of color may occur if the technician does not know how to hold the machine or needle properly. A client consultation and medical history form is obtained first, to discuss any known allergies or questions ahead of time. It’s also a good time for the technician to explain the process in general, and to secure a signed release before performing any patch tests prior to the procedure.

Is there pain or swelling?

Some clients may experience some swelling depending on their skin’s sensitivity. However, most applications look great immediately after the procedure! We have a state-of-the-art anti-pain protocol in which we use a highly effective analgesic ointment. We also offer BioGel, After Care, eye drops and other anti-inflammatory products.

Does it fade?

Some fading will occur, which is normal. Technicians should deposit pigment deep enough to prevent color from scabbing, but diligent after-care will also lock in color. Makeup applied by technicians who strive to perfect their skills will result in better color retention and fewer touch-ups. However, periodic touch-ups are good for a technician’s business!

What can I expect following the procedure as far as the client’s recovery and healing ?

Clients will have only temporary restrictions. Right after the procedure, clients must avoid steamy areas, such as spas or hot tubs, as well as contact with chlorine. They must not rub, pick, or apply additional cosmetics to the treated area until it is completely healed. The normal recovery time is 5 to 10 days.
