As a proud member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals, I have found that they have a great article on permanent eyeliner and often times like to share this with clients.
- Is eyeliner important to your appearance and feeling of self confidence?
- Does your eyeliner smudge?
- Does it wear off during the day?
- Do you have trouble getting it straight or even?
- Are you allergic to cosmetic products or your allergies causing you to re-apply several times a day?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, permanent eyeliner may be right for you!
Permanent eyeliner procedures AKA
- permanent cosmetics
- permanent makeup
- cosmetic tattooing
Eyeliner can be applied in many styles and colors, from soft, natural-looking lash enhancement to a defined line–the choice is yours!
Some people feel both upper and lower eyeliner suits their needs best, while others feel only an upper or a lower eyeliner is appropriate for them.
Whatever look you choose, you will wake up, shower, exercise, work, swim, and go to bed always looking your best.
No more tattle tale eyeliner smear or smudge during the day, no more concern when participating in sports activities and best, your appearance remains consistently fresh appearing throughout the day and night.
As with any artistic appearance enhancement service, techniques will vary from technician to technician. Your permanent cosmetic professional may ask you to wear your eyeliner to the consultation the way you would like it to appear after the cosmetic tattoo has healed. Or, you may be asked to bring a pictorial representation of the preferred eyeliner design. Your technician will advise you if the example(s) are age and style appropriate for permanent cosmetic eyeliner.
The actual cosmetic eyeliner process can vary from one technician to another as there are a wide array of permanent make up devices.
The choices are:
- the coil machine
- the linear device (the Neo Tat)
- the digital rotaries
- the permanent cosmetic pen rotaries
- the manual device.
All, when used in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogens guidelines, are safe. Our technicians are all OSHA certified.
Our studio uses all state of the art equipment, so you can rest assured top quality craftsmanship.
The Eyeliner Process
Some technicians will use a pre-procedure anesthetic, some do not. We apply a topical numbing cream and will use an anesthetic with lidocaine through out the procedure.
The work station will be assembled with one-time-use accessories. If a pre-procedure anesthetic was applied, it is removed in a timely manner in accordance with manufacturer instructions, a sterilized needle will be opened, the needle assembled into the device and the procedure begins.
Typically, OTC eye products (eyewash, eye drops, etc.) are used throughout the permanent eyeliner procedure.
A follow up appointment is normally scheduled in four to eight weeks, depending on the age of the client to determine how the eyeliner procedure healed and if any further work is needed.
