WHAT IS A PERMANENT UNDER-EYE CONCEALER
Under-eye concealer tattoo is another form of cosmetic tattooing. Although the method of application may differ, the concept is similar to other forms of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing (think eyebrow, lipstick, and eyeliner). Essentially, pigment is inked into the skin to mimic the look of an under-eye concealer.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
Skin tone Pigment is not implanted in the skin’s surface but rather deposited in one layer beneath the visible under-eye skin. Another benefit of under-eye camouflage is that the needles used to dispense the pigment provide skin-rejuvenating benefits, similar to microneedling: It stimulates collagen and improves the quality of the skin. she explains. In short, it actually can do your skin a lot of good: placing pigment underneath the eyes can aid in smoothing fine lines and plumping up under-eye hollows.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dark circles are the result of – you guessed it – dark tissues and blood vessels underneath the skin. And as the eyelid skin is thin and lacks opacity, they can easily show through. The cosmetic pigment acts as a buffer between the skin and the underlying darkness; consider it the protective barrier that diffuses darkness before it can emerge onto the surface of the skin.
HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM REGULAR CONCEALER?
Think of it this way: your makeup is covering the under-eye darkness that has already penetrated through the skin – so only the surface discoloration is minimized, not the deeper darkness. Whereas the cosmetic pigment acts as a brightening film directly below the actual under-eye skin – bypassing the need for heavy makeup
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO YOU NEED?
For maximum coverage (approximately 70%-80%), 2-3 sessions are recommended. The sessions are spread apart – dispensing too much pigment at once can result in uneven texture, as the pigment needs time to gradually settle and adjust to the under-eye. Although permanent you may require a touch-up session every 3-4 years.
WHAT’S THE RECOVERY LIKE?
Redness may occur immediately after the treatment, so apply a protective ointment to soothe the skin and speed up healing (Bepanthen is a post-tattoo favorite). As the under-eye area is delicate, makeup can only be applied three days post-procedure. Taking extra precautions to protect the sensitized skin from sun exposure is vital, so apply sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 and always wear sunglasses.
