Permanent Makeup: Read the Fine Print

Permanent Makeup: Read the Fine Print

A procedure known as cosmetic tattooing allows people to wake up each morning virtually ready for the day, with no need to worry about the fuss of daily makeup application. This tattooing service dates back to the 1980’s and was originally used to address a condition known as alopecia, which causes hair loss (including eyebrows). However, the procedure has gained popularity for many people who just want to avoid the hassle of daily beautification.

Permanent Makeup Removal HoustonWhile the procedure is loved by many, there are a growing number of people who are regretting the decision to go under the needle. Even though the procedure is known as “permanent,” there is a natural fading that occurs over time. In addition, many individuals experience skin reactions such as granulomas, keloids, blisters, and even scars. As with any tattoo procedure, people getting cosmetic tattoos can expect a good amount of pain, especially on the sensitive facial skin.

Permanent cosmetics have recently come under question, and the inks used are under scrutiny by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Cosmetic tattoos are not highly regulated, and many people have started amateur cosmetic tattoo shops in their homes. The minimal regulations have allowed people with inadequate training to perform the procedure. As a result, there are many botched permanent makeup tattoos.

There have been numerous reports of individuals experiencing severe negative reactions after getting permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, lipliner, and even lipstick done. The decision to do this procedure should not be taken lightly.  Here at New Look, we do not treat cosmetic tattoos, as the unpredictable ink can be difficult to remove. Permanent makeup inks have been known to oxidize and change color during the course of laser treatment.  Even though we do not provide treatment for permanent makeup tattoos, we do treat tattoos of all other varieties. If you are considering having a different type of tattoo removed, call New Look at (713) 783-2000 for a free consultation.
