What is Eyeliner ?

Semi-Permanent Eyeliner is created by mapping a natural looking lash line with or without wings in order to enhance the shape of the eyes. A tattoo machine along with microneedles are used to penetrate the pigment in the outermost layer of the eyelid skin (approximately 0.5mm into the skin). It differs from the traditional cosmetic tattoos in a way that the pigment is not deposited as deep and therefore will eventually lighten and fade over time. The quality of the pigments used are exceptional and so the color of your eyeliner will not fade into a bluish or greenish tone.

The thought of having needles so close to your eyes might initially be intimating and this is why it is crucial for you to choose the right treatment specialist to perform this procedure in a safe yet artistic manner. Semi-Permanent Eyeliner is a safe and minimally invasive procedure and most of the clients are suitable to receive it. However, if you have any of the conditions mentioned below, it is necessary to consult with your physician and obtain an approval prior to arranging your appointment:

  • Diabetes
  • History of Keloid scarring
  • On any type of blood thinner
  • Pregnant/Breastfeeding
  • Have had any invasive or non-invasive procedures on eyes/eyelids in the last 6 months

The eyelids are numbed using topical anesthetics both before and during the procedure. You might feel minor tingling or vibration rather than pain.

The procedure takes approximately 2 hours. It includes measuring and mapping out the eyeliner most suitable for the shape of your eyes and facial structure. The treatment specialist will then confirm and obtain your approval and start the procedure.

Since the procedure is superficial and minimally invasive, there is rarely any bleeding; however, the eyelids will have some swelling in the next 3 days post procedure. It is important to follow instructions provided in order to minimize discomfort and to obtain the best result.

You will be able to open your eyes and drive right after the procedure.

Changes expected within the next 14 days:

  • Day 1- Swollen and potentially crusty eyes upon waking up. Gravity will help reduce the swelling so avoid lying down for an extended period of time and allow circulation to the area by blinking.
  • Day 2- Swelling persists and eyelids feel heavy. Continue to apply ice if it helps relieve the discomfort.
  • Day 3-4- There might be minor flaking of the pigment. Do not pick or pull off the flakes and allow to fall naturally in order to avoid uneven pigmentation.
  • Day 7-9- The line might look very faded and light. This is a normal phase of the healing process. Continue to monitor and the pigment will re-emerge in the next few days.
  • Day 10 onwards: The pigment, if faded, will start to reappear.
