Permanent Makeup – In the hands of a skilled person, the procedures are generally safe. Permanent makeup is considered micro pigmentation, similar to tattoos. It involves using a needle to place pigmented granules beneath the upper layers of the skin. Permanent makeup must be called what it really is: a tattoo, a cosmetic tattoo! When we talk about risk or safety, what do we mostly mean? 1.Allergic reactions 2.Blood-borne diseases 3.Redness and swelling. 4.Removal of permanent makeup 5.MRI complications We have also to talk about the colors/pigments/Ink. 'FDA-approved colors' -- a red flag Don't be lured by ads claiming a practitioner uses FDA-approved colors. "Stay away," says (Dr. Zwerling, AAM). "They're misrepresenting themselves and the profession." FDA approves colors only for specified end uses. When someone says "FDA-approved colors," you have no way of knowing whether the approval applies to cosmetics, food, or automotive paint, but one thing is certain: no color additive has ever been FDA-approved for injection into the skin. Permanent Makeup can be safe if we know what we do and if we work with safe products (Colors).
