How safe is permanent makeup?Last Updated: June 04, 2019
The art of tattooing and permanent makeup have been practiced for centuries all around the world. All the pigments that we use are cosmetic-grade, which means that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. The ingredients used in the ink are also approved by the FDA for cosmetic applications. The brand that we use also meets EU guidelines for cosmetics.
Be careful with artists using low-quality brands or counterfeit products which have not met stringent safety standards. It is the technician’s responsibility to ensure proper sanitation and prevent possible infection. Clients should advise their service provider if they plan to undergo laser treatment, Botox, dermabrasion, peels, etc. MRIs do not present a problem with the type of ink we use, but it is always good to inform your service provider if you have concerns.
