How To Prepare For Your Micropigmentation Procedure

Posted on: 4 August 2015


Sometimes, your facial features are not the shade that you would like them to be. This can be frustrating because it could result in you  having to spend hours every day applying and reapplying makeup so that you can feel comfortable in your own skin. If you want to avoid having to continue spending this large amount of money and time on cosmetics to change the shade of your facial features, you might want to consider undergoing micropigmentation in order to give your face permanent makeup. Here's how you prepare for a micropigmentation procedure.

1. Decide What You Want

There are several different options for micropigmentation that you can consider. You could have your eyebrows permanently darkened and defined. You could add eyeliner to your eyes that will never come off. You could even change the color of your lips so that you don't have to wear lip liner every day in order to give them definition. Talk to your plastic surgeon about what you would like and the technical limits of the procedure. Many doctors will have a computer program that will scan your face and allow you to try out different micropigmentation augmentations to see what they look like before you commit.

2. Keep Your Skin Healthy

Every plastic surgeon will have a different time frame during which he or she would like your skin to be kept safe. However, each plastic surgeon is going to ask you to wear sunscreen on a regular basis in order to make sure that your skin is not damaged by the sun on the day of your procedure because this could increase the pain that you feel. He or she will also ask you to avoid shaving and tanning a few days before your procedure.

3. Drink a Lot of Water

Finally, your plastic surgeon is going to ask you to to drink lots of water at least one day before your procedure. You want to drink a great deal of water in order to reveal the true definition of your face and decrease bloating. If you drink a lot of water, your body will be much less likely to retain it, allowing any extra water in your body to be purged when you go to the bathroom. This will leave your face closer to its true form because it won't have extra mass due to the water, allowing your plastic surgeon to be more accurate with less effort. You will want to continue drinking water after your procedure in order to make sure that you heal as quickly as possible.
