Permanent Make-Up - Face
Tracey Simpson (Director, Natural Enhancement Permanent Cosmetics) gives expert video advice on: What type of permanent make-up can I have applied to my face?; I have acne, can I still have permanent make-up applied? and more...
What type of permanent make-up can I have applied to my face?
A soft blush of color that enhances the natural skin tones can be applied to the cheek area.
How is this done?
This is done using a hand applicator that is gently tapped across the skin. The needles implant fine dots of color that gradually build up into a blush of color.
Can I still go into the sun?
If you receive a permanent blush procedure, you can still go into the sun, but we do ask you to wear a protective sunscreen, possibly an SPF 25.
I have acne, can I still have permanent make-up applied?
We would not recommend that you apply permanent blush to inflamed acne. This is because we would never implant pigment into open skin.
I have broken blood vessels, can I still have semi permanent make-up applied?
Even though permanent blush doesn't cause broken capillaries, we would not apply permanent blush to those who already have broken capillaries. This is because it could worsen the situation.
Can I use permanent make-up to make me look tanned?
We cannot apply permanent makeup to the whole of the face. Therefore, it couldn't be used to create the appearance of a tan.
Can I cover imperfections with permanent make-up?
Permanent make-up can be used to conceal imperfections that are light to the surrounding skin. Therefore, scars are light to the surrounding skin, and conditions such as vitiligo can be treated with permanent make-up. Where we would be limited is if the imperfection was darker than the surrounding skin, then the permanent make-up would not be able to help conceal that type of imperfection.
