Permanent Cosmetics for Ethnic Skin
Atlanta’s Best Permanent Cosmetics for Men and Women of Color
Permanent Cosmetics are ideal for all individuals who desire to enhance or correct the symmetry and shape of their eyes, lips and brows. Many people of color are concerned whether or not they are good candidates for permanent cosmetics due to their individual ethnic skin characteristics. For best results, it is important that you choose a technician who has had specialized training in the requirements and care of ethnic skin, and how this skin responds to the color application process. The Nouveau Clinic has over 11 years of experience dealing with the specific cosmetic needs of people of color. We are specialists in the application of Permanent Cosmetic colors and camouflage for all skin types and ethnic backgrounds. We work closely with medical estheticians to ensure that we address the special needs of ethnic skin as required.
Preparing Ethnic Skin for Cosmetic Procedures
Depending on their ethnicity, some clients may have a propensity to hyper- pigment (get darker) or hypo-pigment (become lighter) as a result of a cosmetic procedure. As a precautionary measure, depending on the color and condition of your skin, we may recommend that our clients use Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid (licorice product), Vitamin C or lactic acid to bleach the skin for at least 2-4 weeks prior to any initial lip, scar camouflage or scar therapy procedure; or as a follow-up for 2-4 weeks after an initial color application. (Not all people of color will require skin bleaching prior to their initial procedure). If you already have hyper-pigmentation in the areas you are considering for permanent cosmetic color, you will need to lighten these areas in advance of your procedure for best results. Our technicians will be happy to make recommendations for you during your consultation.
Choosing Colors That Look Great and Age Well
Choosing the right colors for ethnic skin can sometimes be challenging. After completing over 9,500 procedures, we have developed color formulations for the eyes, lips and brows that always look beautiful and age very well in the skin regardless of undertones.
