Whether you are suffering from alopecia, have had cancer or are seeking to improve your look and how you feel by redefining brows, eyeliners and lips, micro-pigmentation, otherwise known as cosmetic tattooing or permanent cosmetics can simply be life changing for many people in the same way as other paramedical procedures are.
There is, however, a problem when it comes to the technicians. While there are many highly experienced quality technicians available, there are also many who are inexperienced and rather than enhance the client’s looks, the exact opposite can be the result!
It is therefore fundamental that before undertaking any invasive procedure, you do your research. Find out how many years experience the technician has; whether they are insured; do they have a license? And most importantly, ask to see a portfolio of THEIR work!
Permanent cosmetic pigments have been specifically designed to fade through time as the face and body changes with age allowing the procedures to be modified. However when it comes to tattoo inks, this isn’t the case! The molecules are finer and are therefore permanent and these inks were not designed for use in micro-pigmentation. Unfortunately however, they are sometimes used in just this scenario.
There are not many people in the country who undertake cosmetic tattooing removals, and as one who does, I can confirm that it can take up to six procedures to completely remove such a tattoo. It is also necessary to wait six weeks between each procedure and this whole process does not entirely guaranteed that all the pigment can be removed. Once the tattoo is there, it is a lengthy, uncomfortable and costly procedure to remove it.
So the next time you are looking for a permanent cosmetic practitioner, my advice would be to really do your research and to remember that the old adage of ‘you get what you pay for‘ is a true one – when the technician is expensive, there is a valid reason as to why. It is not a cheap procedure and it takes years to master the ‘art’ of permanent make up.
