What to avoid before the micropigmentation, cosmetic tattooing or the SPMU procedure?

The pre-treatment instructions may vary depending on the clinic, your medical history, and the specific procedure used. However, some general guidelines may include:

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin for at least 24 hours before the procedure
  • Avoid any blood-thinning medications or supplements for at least one week prior to the treatment
  • Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, or spray tans for at least one week prior to the procedure
  • Do not wax or pluck the treatment area before the procedure
  • Arrive at the clinic with a clean and makeup-free face

What are the benefits of using permanent makeup or semi-permanent makeup, and how long do the results normally last?

Permanent makeup or micropigmentation can provide many benefits, such as hiding scars, correcting asymmetry, and enhancing features like eyebrows and lips. The results of permanent makeup can last for several years, depending on factors like the area treated, skin type, and lifestyle habits. Semi-permanent makeup may require touch-ups every few months to maintain the desired results.

What to avoid post micropigmentation, cosmetic tattooing or SMPU treatment ?

  • Avoid touching or scratching the treated area for at least one week after the procedure
  • Avoid water, makeup, or other products on the treated area for at least one week
  • Avoid direct sun exposure, tanning beds, or spray tans for at least two weeks after the procedure
  • Avoid swimming, hot tubs, and saunas for at least two weeks after the procedure
  • Apply any prescribed ointment or cream
  • Do not pick at scabs or crusts that may form during the healing process

What is SPMU?

‘SPMU’ means semi-permanent makeup. It’s a delicate process that deposits high-grade pigment into the skin’s epidermis using extremely fine tools called microneedles and microblades. A range of highly realistic effects can be achieved such as hair strokes, powder effects, or shading.

What’s the difference between regular tattoo and cosmetic tattoo?

Regular tattooing is typically for decorative purposes and is permanent, while cosmetic and medical tattooing serve functional roles. Cosmetic tattooing enhances facial features like eyebrows, lips, or eyeliner. Medical tattooing is often used to address issues such as scar camouflage, areola restoration after breast surgery, or the replication of hair follicles on the scalp for those with hair loss. These procedures are also semi-permanent and employ specialized techniques and pigments, distinct from those used in regular tattooing, tailored to their specific applications.
