Can Permanent Makeup Cause Allergies to The Skin?

When you undergo permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, you are in fact getting a detailed tattoo on your face. A needle inserts colored pigment ink into your skin to mimic makeup. Some of the most common permanent makeup tattoos are done to look like eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrows and even blush. You can also get a full lip color.

Although permanent makeup is usually quite safe, all types of tattoos carry some health risks, especially an allergic reaction to the pigments or sensitive skin. Here’s what you should know if you fear an allergic reaction.

Can I Use Permanent Makeup Being Allergic?

Cosmetic tattooing, better known as permanent makeup, has become popular in recent decades. This same procedure can be used to camouflage pathological skin conditions, mask scars and complete the aesthetic results of plastic and reconstructive surgeries. Risks and complications of tattooing procedures include infections and allergic reactions. 

The pigments and dyes used in tattoo inks and PMUs are relatively inert and are usually well tolerated. Allergic reactions to dyes are rare, but when they do occur, they can be especially bothersome because the pigments can be difficult to remove. Ask your doctor the type of pigments they use and how you can test them into your skin before a full procedure.

Take Into Consideration These Recommendations 

If you have opted for permanent makeup, follow these hints:

  • Choose the type and color of your permanent makeup carefully. Don’t make a decision based on trends.
  • Check that your tattoo professional is experienced and accredited.
  • Make sure the procedure room is clean and tidy.
  • Check that all needles are new and sterilized. They should be opened from a package in your presence.
