Permanent eyebrows are becoming more and more popular. Permanent eyebrows are no longer the chunky, marker-filled in tattoos. Today’s eyebrows are performed by highly-trained professions to provide the correct color and techniques for natural looking blended eyebrows.

JMarie Skin Studio is a boutique medical spa that offers a full line of skin care treatment options and serving all permanent makeup needs.

Although the application of permanent eyebrows or nipple tattoos are safe, the procedures are not free of potential problems. As with anything, the more you know, the more you can protect yourself and avoid issues.

Many of these issues can be avoided by simply keeping the area clean. Avoid using makeup or anything on the site until your skin heals.

One issue that occurs regularly is redness around the site. Some slight redness around the site is normal. This will usually clear up in 2-3 days. Anything beyond that could be a sign of infection. An infection can turn into cellulitis and needs to be treated immediately. Most infections can be treated with an antibiotic cream.

Another normal condition is scabbing which can last up to seven days.

Swelling is another symptom that occurs frequently. If the swelling does occur, apply a cold pack to the skin to reduce swelling, pain, and tenderness.

Avoid using a triple antibiotic ointment which contains neomycin. Many people develop a rash when this is applied to the tattooed area.

Tell the technician if you have a wound, cut, burn or rash at the site where the tattoo will be applied. There is an increased risk of skin infections if a nipple tattoo or permanent eyebrows are applied in that area.

Although problems associated with permanent eyebrows or nipple tattoos are low, more information is always helpful. The main thing to consider is keeping the site clean.
