It is important to read over the facts of Microblading & Permanent Makeup before scheduling an appointment to assure you are a good candidate.
While eyebrows may show little after effect, eyeliner and lips may show slight to moderate swelling. This is very dependent upon the amount of work performed. An eyelash enhancement will show very little response to the tattooing procedure compared to a more pronounced response from a wide eyeliner procedure. The same situation applies to lip color procedures. A lip liner or blended lip liner will show less effects from the procedure than a full lip color. Also, some people swell more from minor skin infractions than others.
During the procedure there may be some minor bleeding. This again, is client specific. Many people take blood thinners on a daily basis so some slight bleeding would be expected. Others show little or no signs of bleeding. Bruising is rare but again, if a person is on blood thinners, bruising could occur. Eyebrows rarely if ever produce any bruising while minor bruising during a eyeliner procedures is possible since the skin treated is very thin and close to the vascular system. This also applies to lip procedures for older clients. When bruising does occur, it is usually minor and heals in a few days. There is usually some tenderness for a few days. The color is much darker than you may expect for the first six to ten days.
Other less often reported side effects are difficult to determine due to the individuality of each person’s biological system. This is why professional permanent cosmetic technicians require a client history profile be filled out to assess different factors that may contribute to your experience during and after the permanent make up procedure.
Although the procedure is considered permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing color and shape to some extent, depending on the expertise of your technician. Colors will appear darker immediately following the procedure but will soften and lighten during the healing process. The healing time is different for each individual and procedure. It is very important to realize that often the new procedure represents something somewhat different; at times color where there was no color at all or very little.
It takes time to become acclimated to a new look (very often this applies to eyebrows which were sparse and unnoticeable before the permanent cosmetic brow procedure.) Eyeliner color is more evident due to the contrast to the skin color. Lip color can take 6-8 weeks to reflect the final color. Patience during the healing process is essential. Permanent cosmetics are not easily removed. Make good decisions up front. You can enjoy the all of the benefits that permanent cosmetics provide when you do your research and choose a qualified professional that you feel is competent to perform your procedure.
