Contraindications for Permanent Make up

Candidates who are seeking permanent makeup and who may be contraindicated include people with diabetes, pregnant and lactating women, people with glaucoma and people who are taking blood thinning medicines (e.g., aspirin). People with skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema and undiagnosed rashes or blisters on the site that is to be treated. People with allergies to makeup or colours, and those with easily triggered postinflammatory hyperpigmentation are not good candidates. Also contraindicated are individuals who are attempting to cover or camouflage telangiectasia or birthmarks. If at all worried then a doctors note is required.


Colour Corrections

One school of thought is the best way to correct a mistake is to not make one in the first place. Although this concept sounds great in theory, it is not always possible. Colour correction is not as simple as, for example, painting a room. You cannot just slap another coat of paint on to mask it. Pigments from permanent make up will coexist in the skin. To change a colour, you will need to first neutralise it so that it can then be brought to a correctable state. This modification usually means adding a completely different colour to offset the colour irregularity. For example if you have blue but wanted brown , you will need to add mustard-coloured yellowish orange to the colour needed to achieve a brown with a strong yellowish-orange tone. If the situation is intense, the colour corrector is first tattooed into the skin and then the desired colour is implanted afterwards. For a less intense situation, the modifier is added to the desired brown tone to ensure enough of the corrector colour to counter balance the existing tone.


What is Permanent Make up and Who Benefits?

Permanent Make up is a trade, a skill, a science, and an art. Becoming accomplished as a permanent make up technician requires you to be adept in all of these areas. Permanent make up is also technique sensitive, meaning that the outcome depends on the skill level of the person performing the procedure. One technician will not necessarily be able to reproduce the results of another. The more procedures that have been done the more likely the chance will be for a positive outcome. There is only one chance to get permanent make up right.

For some people, the daily application of makeup is a routine that is too time-consuming, challenging or just inconvenient. Whether the problem is a lack of time or physical limitations, many people are turning to the application of permanent make up. It is a form of tattooing in which colour is applied, usually on the face, eyes, eye brows, lips, in as little as one or two visits, rather than the usual daily application. Doing so has many benefits, a reduction in the amount of time it takes to get ready each day is the most noticeable. Of course also, smearing, running and smudging associated with normal make up. Some one who has this procedure done can add valuable time to the day. Of course the client will also save lots of money in the replacement cost of make up.

Permanent make up is especially useful to people who have physical limitations. Because of advancing age, neurologic disorders, impaired vision, burns of the face or hands and hand injuries, the daily use of applied cosmetics can be a source of difficulty. For many of these people, the decline in their abilities to perform functions, once done without thought, becomes a source of anxiety. By having permanent make up performed, these people have the luxury of looking good without the stress associated with use of applied cosmetics.
