A form of a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that is done to resemble the look of an eyeliner when applied on the inner and outer lines of the eyes.
Who needs it?
- Anyone who hates having panda-like eyes as their eyeliner spreads around their eyes all the time
- Anyone who wants their eyes to look bigger 1.5 times
- Anyone who wants to look fresh and young by making their pupil look bigger
- Anyone who is having bloodshot eyes wherein their eyes become reddish every time they draw an eyeliner or apply mascara
- Anyone who has sensitive eyes and hates putting on makeup eyeliner because aside from the fact that they are not skilled in applying the product, it irritates their skin
- Anyone who admits that even though how much they love the result of eyeliner applied on their eyes, it gives them the hard time in achieving that look everyday
- If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure. Most physicians are allowing permanent eyeliner procedure 2-3 months after cataract, lasik, and blepharoplasty or double-eyelid surgery.
- Do not wear contact lenses during the procedure or for 24 hours after.
- Have sunglasses available. Eyes may be light sensitive or even dilated immediately after. The sunglasses are also handy for hiding puffy eyes.
- Do not dye or tint, curl or perm, eyelash extensions, or use eyelash curler 2 days before and 2 weeks after.
- No make-up in the area for 5 days
- Do not use mascara until outer healing is complete (3-5 days) or better yet extend it until 7 days after. Most clients are returning to work in 2 days and are noncompliant about this, so at least begin with a new tube of mascara due to risk of bacterial presence in used tubes. Stay a little farther out on the lashes, not too close to the liner. Remove with vaseline or baby oil without rubbing it into the liner.
- Eyes will be swollen for a few days. Eyes may feel dry or irritated. Lubricating refresher drops may be used.
- No sun, soap, sauna, chlorinated pools or salt water for 2 weeks
- Apply healing cream 3 times a day for 2 weeks with a cotton tip
- Don’t pick or peel crusting
- No hydroxy acids or retinoids on treated area for 1 month (and if used afterwards will speed up fading)
