Many women want to wake up in the morning, look into the mirror, and see rosy lips, perfect eye brows and eye liner. This perk of cosmetic tattoos is all the rage among many women who are tired of having to wake up with remnants of yesterday’s makeup and having to touch up every other hour.
In the capable hands of an expert, permanent make up is considered safe as far as application is concerned. Permanent make up comes under the category of micro pigmentation. The process involves using a needle to put pigmented substances under the skin’s upper layer. This is also treated as medical restoration apart from being referred to as tattoos. It helps hide vitiligo and scars which many other treatments may not be able to.
Risk of Allergies
Allergies from this procedure are a very rare occurrence. This is a general risk when a person has a foreign body implanted into their own. Sometimes, the reaction comes years later in the form of a rash or your immune system reacting out in some other way.
However, iron oxide is the component that never causes any allergic reactions and for this very purpose, it is used in the permanent makeup that is used. The risky components are the ones that most people do not seem to be, these are natural, organic or anything that is vegetable based.
Now that other adverse reactions that you should be wary of are the granulomas, which are basically masses that come from inside tissue around foreign substances; these are basically raised scar tissue.
In July 2004, FDA alerted the masses to the adverse affects of a particular ink shade that was being used in micro pigmentation practices. These were a product of Premier Products from Arlington, Texas.
The potential of it only exists if the practitioner fails to use sterile equipment to administer the tattoos. At makeup by Trinkette, we make sure to follow the top notch safety regulations and expert practices on application. We take permanent to be a serious trade that deserves attention to detail in each step.
The FDA approved colors
Ads that claim they offer FDA approved colors are luring into something that they are probably not even sure of themselves. FDA approved colors do not exist when it comes to micro pigmentation. FDA looks into the adverse affects of such things but never has it ever approved of a color additive that you can stick under your skin.
The only complication that you should be worried about when it comes to getting permanent makeup is the common concern all tattoo bearers have: the prospect of ever having an MRI in the future. There is always a burning sensation and swelling around the tattooed areas after one has had an MRI. This is because of the link between the pigment and the MRI’s magnetic field.
However, this is not a health hazard or any reason for anyone to forgo getting permanent makeup for themselves.
