About Permanent Eyeliner
What is Permanent Eyeliner?

Many have undergone a permanent eyeliner treatment rather than applying eyeliner every morning with a liquid liner or pencil. Getting rid of that daily hassle and, in the process, ensuring perfectly applied eyeliner certainly has its benefits. And for those who have missing lashes or lighter colored eyelashes, permanent eyeliner goes a long way toward making your eyes look fabulous.

What is permanent eyeliner?

It’s more of a semi-permanent makeup procedure; the results, though, do tend to last for 1-2 years with touch ups needed at that time—those who have had permanent eyeliner done, rave about it. The results were time saved, money saved on expensive eyeliner products, and a stunning look.

The process works with ultra-thin needles. The pigment is then injected into the treatment area. The technician will numb the area before actually starting to fill in with the dye. They will, at that point, draw in the shape of the liner, ensuring that it is perfect. The pigment is pixelated into the skin, so it works a little differently than traditional tattooed on eyeliner. Cutting edge equipment doesn’t penetrate as deeply into the layers of skin. It is said that the permanent eyeliner process is not as painful as eyeliner tattooing.

How long does permanent eyeliner last?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions regarding permanent eyeliner. Again, it is essential to note that it is not permanent per se. Instead, it lasts for a couple of years, at which point you will need to get a touchup to restore the vividness of the initial eyeliner application. So there will be some fading after two or sometimes three years.

You can slow down the fading process. Experts suggest staying away from the constant use of various eye creams and lotions. This contributes to fading, but it can also take away from the distinctness of the lines.

What to know before your permanent eyeliner procedure?

Depending on the situation, there may be a skin test done in which the technician will do a tiny patch to see how the skin reacts. This is determined under the initial consultation. Before your treatment, you will review medical history and skin type, and any noted skin conditions with the technician. If there seems to be an issue present, they will likely do a skin test first.

Beyond ensuring the area is safe for permanent eyeliner, other precautions include avoiding caffeine and alcohol before you are appointed to thin your blood. Also, many will suggest that you avoid strenuous activity and work out the day of your procedure. When you work out, your body’s pores open up, creating a less-than-ideal scenario. Avoid heavy sunlight for a few days beforehand as well. Exposure to the sun could cause sunburn. If your skin is in the process of healing, then this is not optimal for applying permanent eyeliner.

Is permanent eyeliner safe?

Another often asked question regarding the permanent eyeliner process regards its overall safety. Of course, the procedure involves thin needles being injected around the eye; this may give some people a moment of pause when thinking about the safety of it all. The key here is to ensure you have it done by an experienced and skilled practitioner. Also, the sterility of the environment in which it is being performed is essential as far as safety factors go—doing your research and looking for reputable spas that perform permanent eyeliner treatment.

Some of the less common risks associated with this procedure include infection if bacteria get into the treated area, allergic reactions, irregular scarring, and migration of pigments. For people who have autoimmune disorders or are pregnant, this may not be the best option as in rare circumstances, complications can occur.

Does permanent eyeliner have any side effects?

Directly following the procedure, you could experience light bleeding, swelling, and bruising. Some people note discomfort around the eye after their treatment accompanied by a burning/itching feeling. Generally lasting only a couple of days if they do occur. Also, keep in mind that the eyeliner will initially look darker—it fades after about a week into its intended tone.

Your technician should carefully review all aftercare instructions with you before sending you home. It is essential to follow the instructions precisely as this will facilitate healing time and help to prevent infection in the eye area. If you experience something strange, you should call the practitioner immediately. You may also want to call your doctor.

It is recommended that you avoid eye makeup, harsher skin cleaners, and tanning creams while the eye area is healing, as these can sometimes compromise the healing process.

Can you choose from different permanent eyeliners?

Many clinics and spas that perform this procedure will have a variety of colors and some different styles that you can choose from. There are various line options as well. So review all choices carefully and ensure that you are happy with your decision before undergoing treatment.

Can the eyeliner be removed?

The good thing about the fact that it is semi-permanent rather than permanent is that you are not stuck with it for life. You can either wait a few years until it fades, or there are procedures for removing the eyeliner that is relatively painless.

If you are considering having permanent eyeliner applied, the important thing is to research the various places around you that perform the service. You want to ensure they have the training and experience to ensure a seamless process. Safety is critical with this type of cosmetic procedure. When you’re done, your eyes will look amazing. They will pop and be more vibrant than before—the best part, you do not have to struggle with eye pencils every morning.
