What is Permanent Eyeliner?
Permanent eyeliner is a semi-permeant procedure to give you all the benefits of eyeliner without the hassle of daily application and wear of eyeliner makeup. Similar to a tattoo, the permanent eyeliner pigment is inserted into the epidermis of the skin. Using a pinpoint precision technique, Lana will apply the permanent eyeliner and it will appear perfect in a way that is not possible to achieve with standard eyeliner makeup. Permanent eyeliner will give the illusion of thick, dark and dense eyelashes. The procedure is safe, non-invasive and gentle. Because permanent eyeliner it is not as deep as a tattoo, the effect will gradually fade over the course of 1-2 years depending on the client. In addition, the pigmented ink used for this procedure is gentle, safe and effective for semi-permanent use.
Depending on the client’s preferences, the effect of permanent eyeliner can be dramatic or subtle. Clients have complete control over the shape, length and color for the eyeliner. The effect can change the appearance of an eye by creating an optical illusion of abundant, luscious lashes. For a softer look, clients can choose the eyeliner to be “smudged.” Clients can choose to have the eyeliner done only on the upper eyelid or on both the upper and lower eyelids. Lana will work personally with clients to determine the best look for them based on the client’s preferences, features, complexion, and eye shape.
The best part about permanent eyeliner is that it allows clients to forget about eyeliner completely! Clients are free to live their lives without worry about their eyeliner smudging, running or rubbing off even while swimming, sleeping or working out.
The effect of permanent eye makeup will typically last 1-2 years, with some clients experiencing the effects even longer! This varies from client to client depending on the client’s lifestyle, the color of the pigment used, the thickness of the application, skin color and the body’s reaction to the pigment. A client’s lifestyle can also effect the longevity; specifically, factors effecting it include: BOTOX, tone correcting creams, exfoliating creams, lightening skin creams, and sun exposure.
The application process of permanent eyeliner is simple, quick and efficient.
When you arrive for treatment, Lana will personally work with you to find and confirm the perfect look for you. You will work with Lana to decide on a style while considering factors such as: your preferences, complexion, facial features and eye shape. Lana advises that you do not wear makeup or contacts to this appointment.
After the eyelid area is sterilized and any makeup removed, a numbing gel will be applied. The numbing gel will take about 15-20 minutes to take full effect. This gives the client some time to relax before the procedure begins.
Next, Lana will tattoo the eyeliner with pinpoint accuracy for a precision effect. During the process, Lana will apply another type of numbing gel that penetrates the skin in order to ensure your comfort. Once the tattooing process has been completed, the patient will again have some time to relax while Lana explains aftercare.
Lana will also schedule a perfecting session about 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment. The color will settle during this time and the eyelids will be completely healed. Lana will examine your skin and make any minor adjustments to the shape or the color in order to guarantee the client is happy with the look of the eyeliner.
After the initial eyeliner appointment, eyelids can be tender. This is normal for the first few days. During this time, it is important not to scratch or pick at the skin. Lana recommends you wear sunglasses outdoors as much as possible during the healing process, as sunlight can cause the pigment to fade faster.
In addition, the pigment will appear must darker in the first 7 – 30 days. During this time, the pigment will be gradually fading to the desired color. Some of the pigment may appear to fall off, such as when toweling the face dry or after sleeping on a pillow. However, this just means that some of the dry cells and superficial color are shedding. You should not be alarmed because this is normal. The pigment will completely settle after 30 days to the desired effect.
Lana will schedule a perfecting appointment 4-6 weeks following the initial appointment. At this appointment, you can discuss any changes to color, shape or width.
Lana did my eye liner and what a fantastic job she did. People ask how I did such a perfect line and they can’t believe it when I tells them it’s permanent liner. Lana has been working on my face for six weeks and the results are great. I will be one of her long time customers. I love that she is passionate about her work and never try’s to sell you anything you don’t need, where and when have you ever even that. Thank you so much for everything Lana.
