For permanent makeup (PMU) to be retained in the skin,
must be taken into consideration the following, pre-treatment
recommendations, medical conditions, medications,
exfoliations, aftercare, the skin type, and last but not
least, the lifestyle. All of them will be crucial in the
pigment retention and general result. Here I talk about
each one so that you take it into account before doing
any permanent makeup.

Medical Conditions
There are medical conditions, such as diabetes or
autoimmune diseases that it is not advisable to do a
PMU, however, well-controlled diabetes will not be an
obstacle to obtaining good results. In the case of
autoimmune diseases, the situation is different. Although
the technology of pigments is very advanced, the
possibility of the body reacting against this foreign body
in these cases is very possible and it’d be better to not
take the risk. In the case of patients with cancer or
receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy, it is important
to have the approval of the doctor, since the immune

system could be suppressed; permanent makeup consists
of introducing pigments under the skin, which is a micro
wound that will need the body to be in the best
conditions for a good heal, this avoids infections,
allergies or complications that in normal situations would
not occur.

Drugs or medicines
Some treatments can also interfere with pigment
retention such as antibiotics, kidney treatments, or
increased urine discharge. Oily vitamins also interfere as
it rejects the pigment or mixes with it, (depending on the
base that has the pigment) creating poor results.

Chemical treatments on the skin should be avoided
depending on how strong they are from a month before
or up to a year in the case of acne treatments. These
treatments remove the skin layer from the face so when
performing a PMU we will be depositing the pigment in
deeper layers giving dark or ashy results, plus the high
sensitivity due to the chemical attack.

Skin Type
Most skin types are ideal for microblading, but there are
exceptions. Oily skin wouldn’t be good for microblading,
as they repel the ink. For these skin types, the techniques
that favor them are Powder Brows and Nano Strokes,
both techniques are performed with an electric machine.
Skin with constant peeling or flaking, with active acne,
warts, psoriasis, or just in any altered state won’t favor
the retaining of the pigment.

The aftercare
It is important to follow the after-care indicated by your
artist. The worked area should be cleaned with wet
wipes for the first 24 hours, and you should avoid water,
sweat, steam, and the sun for 7 days to gain the best

If you exercise a lot or expose yourself a lot to the sun,
this will shorten the life of your permanent makeup,

because the sweat and peeling of the tanned skin will
eliminate pigment faster than normal. In these cases, the
use of sunscreen will be indicated. For people who sweat
a lot, more frequent pigment touch-ups are indicated,
every 10-12 months.
