Introduction to Permanent Makeup

Tattoos are all around us, some are beautiful works of art, while others are – not. At Aesthetica Med Spa we now offer Permanent Makeup treatments for our Austin patients. This treatment not only saves you time, but it’s also long-lasting to save you money on future makeup products! To learn more about this life-altering treatment, please keep reading the information provided below.

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is achieved through a procedure that deposits tiny particles of pigment into the dermal layer of skin in a process called micropigmentation (also known as microblading, microshading, cosmetic tattooing, dermapigmentation, PMU, permanent cosmetics, semi-permanent makeup/cosmetics, paramedical tattooing, and medical tattooing). This treatment requires tattooing detailed and artistic aspects to add permanent color to areas like your eyebrows, eyeliner, and lipstick, also other parts of the body saving you the hassle of having to apply it as you are getting ready.

At Aesthetica Med Spa, our technicians perform the procedure by hand to ensure optimal results. This process is very similar to getting a tattoo. In addition to defining the eyes, micropigmentation is used to enhance eyebrows and lips to create lovely results that can last for years.

What to Expect on the Day of Getting Permanent Makeup

During your permanent makeup session, you will receive a medical-grade topical numbing agent to help keep you comfortable when undergoing the procedure.

The initial procedure can take about 1-2 hours depending on what service you choose. This includes numbing time, the drawing and mapping process, choosing colors, and the application of the procedure. Most procedures require more than one session to get the desired color you want.

Permanent Makeup Recovery

After your Permanent Makeup treatment, you will be able to return to your normal routine but keep in mind that there may be some redness and swelling in the treated area. You will be provided a list of instructions to follow to achieve the most optimal results, which can include:

  • Carefully blot the area with a clean tissue throughout the first day to absorb excess fluid until it has stopped, which prevents any hardening of the lymphatic fluids.
  • Do not get them wet for 2 weeks or until the scaps have completely come off.
  • DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
  • Initially in your recovery try to avoid getting your face wet in the shower. Avoid creating too much steam by limiting your showers to 5 minutes. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair.

Other little tips to follow include:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure, and hot, sweaty exercise for at least one week, including long, hot showers or hot tubs. Wear a hat when outdoors.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color. DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.
  • No facials, botox, chemical treatments, or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks after
  • Botox 2 weeks before and Lip filler 4 weeks before procedure.
  • Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
