Keep in mind that less may be best. Avoid regrets by going conservative. Removing permanent makeup is difficult and leaves a change in skin texture, Dixon says. “You can always add [color] but you cannot always take it away,” she says.

Hair-thin needle great for hairstrokes or scalp stippling: Skinmaster REVO Ultrafine

E-mail Print PDF

Its-Great-Lady-Cartoon-Ultrafine REVOCompare the needle on the right with the needle on the left and you'll see the difference! The Skinmaster #654 REVO-1 is the finest single needle available at 0.18 mm makes realistic hairstrokes. A tight “flattening” grip on the brow is the key to success as you’ll feel the vibration under your fingers. Start in the middle of the hairstroke to avoid telltale dots of ink where you begin each hair. Keep the needle upright, not tilted, when working in the skin. You can adjust the flow of the color to the needle through an adjustable 3-way vent hole in the tip. Whether you prefer to dip your needle into the pigment or put a couple of drops in the round hole at the tip is a matter of personal choice. You’ll want to practice your Skinmaster hairstrokes to adjust your needle length and hairstroke pattern. Use a white marking pencil or pen, or a black China marker, for your brow shape before you begin. Pain control? Score the skin lightly and apply Numquick Liquid (or Ultra Duration) before you begin in earnest. You can use a pre-numbing cream or ointment for about 30-40 minutes as well. It’s hard to get the brows really numb before you begin but once the skin is open you should have no problem. Set Skinmaster at low speed and either drag the needle over the skin and work with a very shallow needle and apply Numquick Liquid (or UltraDuration). Wait 10 minutes and proceed. CLICK HERE.

TATTOOING THE WETLINE

E-mail Print PDF

A common question by permanent makeup professionals is if they should tattoo the "wetline" and how to do it successfully. Ophthalmologists say "NO!" Others say proceed with caution.  Here's why: Professionals should appreciate the function of the Meibomian glands along the "wetline", mucosal surface of the inner eyelid.  The Meibomian glands secrete an oily film that coats the tear film to keep the eye moist.  Overworking this area can result in scarring and damage to the Meibomian gland orifices (openings) and result in chronic dry eye. [Thanks to centerforsight.com and wikipedia for valuable illustrations and helpful information.]

Wetline

The meibomian glands (or tarsal glands) are a special kind of sebaceous gland at the rim of the eyelids inside the tarsal plate, responsible for the supply of meibum, an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye's tear film.
