You’ve probably heard about the benefits of semi-permanent makeup and are thinking about trying it out. Before you do, it’s wise to know what it is first.
It’s actually a procedure where hypoallergenic pigment is injected into the shallow layers of the skin using a sterile needle. If you want semi-permanent makeup to bring out the best in you, you must prepare your skin for the procedure. Here are some ways to do that:
- Don’t Use Other Treatments
Leave your skin in its natural form for at least a week or so before the procedure. If you have eyelash extensions, take them off and avoid wearing them again before the procedure and full healing of your skin.
- Don’t Skimp on Aftercare
After the procedure, your skin will be sensitive to sunlight and UV rays. Allow it to recover in peace by going for a high-protection sunscreen, preferably SPF 50.
- Timing Is Everything
If you have several important events and parties coming up, getting semi-permanent makeup may be a good fit for you. Make sure to book your appointment a few weeks before the event. This will allow your skin plenty of time to recover.
- Show Your Technician What You Want
After knowing the semi-permanent makeup treatment you want to be done on you, find some photos of lips, brows, or liner style that you like and show these to your technician. This helps them figure out how you’d like the result to look.
