Cosmetic Tattoo Melbourne

Keep in mind that cosmetic tattoo intended to enhance your lash line, lip line, or brow, not to replace your makeup.
Cosmetic Tattoo, also referred to as micropigmentation, involves the micro-implantation of mineral extracts of various shades into the skin similar to tattooing.

Permanent makeup goes back to the ancient Egyptians when Cleopatra actually wrote an instructional guide to cosmetics.

Both Egyptian men and women wore makeup. They would line their eyes heavily in black, they used malachite to color their eyelids green or blue and they used carmine on their lips. To give their cheeks color they would mix red clay with saffron.

Cosmetic Tattoo Procedure in Melbourne clinic

  • Treatment length will depend on the size of the area you are treating. Typical eyeliner permanent make-up takes up to 60minutes.
  • The pigments used for permanent makeup are available in a variety of earth and flesh tones, and can be mixed to closely match or highlight your skin tone or hair color.
  • Initially the pigment will look much darker than the expected results: this is normal and the pigment will fade to the wanted color over a period of a week or two.
  • Melbourne Clinic Specialist – Moira - apply special natural pigments (not ink) through a delicate hand-piece specifically designed for applying permanent makeup.
  • A topical or local anaesthesia is used to prevent pain and discomfort during the cosmetic tattoo procedure.
  • A complete upper and lower lash enhancement may take about 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Eyebrows and lip liner are also done quickly, with very little discomfort.

  • Topical antibiotic ointment may be used for a few days.
  • You will need to refrain from applying makeup, avoid direct sunlight, and avoid wearing contact lenses for a week.
  • Some patients may experience a slight swelling in the treated areas.
  • This will subside with the use of a cool compress. Even without the cold compress it’ll go within a day or two.
  • If you are having the procedure performed in your eye region, you should plan to have someone drive you to the office and home again.
  • You may experience tearing. Most people can drive themselves and actually return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
  • The pigmentation typically will appear darker in the days following the procedure.
  • Within about 10 days some of the pigment is rejected from the skin.
  • Follow your specialist’s on what to avoid (such as peroxide) or sunlight. Either of these can damage your new look.
  • Your new look requires maintenance. Some people have to undergo two or more treatments.
  • Make sure you understand exactly how many treatments you will need. As the pigment fades over the years, you also may have to undergo additional treatments to maintain the look.
