Fill Out This Form and We’ll Call You Back with more information about permanent make-up options available at our 3 hospitals in Istanbul, treatment process, prices as well as pre-operation information and the post-operation recovery period.
Permanent make-up is the inoculation of natural water-based ink made from pigments into the epidermis (upper layer of the skin).
The primary difference between permanent make-up and tattoos is that the ink used for permanent ones are derived from the areas of the body it is used. Furthermore, tattoo ink is injected not into the epidermis but into the dermis, ensuring its permanence. However permanent make-up is removed over time by the skin as the cells renew themselves. It is for this reason that the lifespan of permanent make-up depends on the person’s metabolism and ranges from 2-5 years.
The colour of the permanent make-up may begin to blur over time as the pigment is removed from the skin. However, periodic retouches will ensure the same beauty and permanence is kept for many, many years.
Permanent make-up is used for paramedical reasons just as it is used on the eyebrows, as eyeliner, and on the lips. These paramedical uses are:
- On the areolae (nipples)
- Colouring the nipples following a mastectomy.
- Alopecia (partial or complete absence of hair)
- Scars and skin blemishes/spots
Permanent make-up cannot be used on diabetic or haemophilic patients or those who have HIV. The very light pain felt during application varies person to person and on the area in concern. However, this is described as a stinging sensation and local anaesthetic is used to reduce this sensation to a minimum.
Who Can Have Permanent Make-Up?
- Those who love always being well-kept.
- Those who don’t want to lose time applying make-up all the time.
- Those who don’t want to clean away running make-up caused by sweating while swimming or in the sauna (especially those who exercise).
- Those who have difficulty using make-up (eye-problems, shaky hands etc.).
- Those with deformed eyebrows.
- Those whose eyebrows have fallen out or are thinning due to natural reasons or medical interventions.
- Those whose eyelashes have fallen out for one of many reasons (sties etc.) or are thin or undefined.
- Those who have undefined lip edges and those who want fuller lips that have a livelier colour.
- Those who have lost pigment around their lips (for lips that often have cold sores)
- Those with hair lips.
