About Cosmetic Tattoos
We all have a favourite eyebrow!
Not all things are created equal, especially when it comes to our facial features. No face is perfectly symmetrical. Just as we have a dominant hand, we typically have stronger facial muscles on one side that slightly raise one eyebrow and eyelid higher on that one side. Similarly, our hair does not grow perfectly even on both sides, collagen is not uniformly distributed and skin tones vary. Micro-pigmentation is the art of using tattoo inks to lift, fill, lengthen, colour and shape our facial features to naturally enhance those features we embrace and camouflage those less desirable ones.
Permanent vs. Semi-Permanent
Cosmetic tattoos are different from traditional body ink. We use different equipment, application methods and unique products designed specifically for sensitive skin. The skin on our face, particularly around the eyes and lips is thinner and more delicate. For Facial Tattoos we implant the pigments in a gentle process at a more shallow depth when compared to body tattoos. As such, while cosmetic tattoos are still a “permanent” process, they are meant to appear natural and will fade over time as the skin cells cycle and shed. Cosmetic tattoos are therefore are more suitably characterized as semi-permanent.
Each person’s genetic makeup, age, health, and skin type will have different affects on healing, colour retention and fading. Depending on the tattoo style, location and colour, a cosmetic tattoo will typically require a touch-up and colour renewal in 1 to 3 years. Other factors such as a client’s daily skin care routines and lifestyle will also affect the permanency of the tattoo.
Maintenance is key! Protecting your cosmetic tattoo from harmful ultraviolet sun rays and avoiding exfoliants such as anti-aging and acne products will significantly increase the longevity of your tattoo. However, regular maintenance visits with your tattoo technician will ensure that your tattoo stays vibrant and crisp.
