The result appears sharp just after the application of permanent make-up but becomes natural after a few days or weeks depending on one’s skin and healing power. Generally, the healing time is just one or two days.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr Anup Dhir of Apollo hospital gets three to four enquiries per week. But he says that he would not really advise just about everyone to go for permanent make-up because it is difficult and costly to remove. "Laser treatment, which removes this make-up, is costlier than the make-up itself," he adds.
But people who opt for the permanent make-up procedure generally like what they get.
Founder and director VLCC Vandana Luthra says the technique can mimic eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, lip liner and lipstick. Permanent make-up is ideal for women who cannot afford the time to apply make-up throughout the day. At the end of the day, the make-up looks as though it was just freshened. One can select from a wide variety of shades or a new shade can be created.
