Add Some Drama to Your Eyes This Holiday Season With Permanent Eyeliner

When people look at you, usually the first thing they notice is your eyes. Eyes hold much of the expressiveness of your face, and when made up well, they can contribute to your looking beautiful. With all the festive holiday gatherings coming up, you want to look your absolute best!

Makeup allows you to craft your signature look and highlight your best features, but it takes time to put on makeup, and it can easily be smudged or ruined by the winter weather. Permanent eyeliner is a great solution that saves you time and money, and it always looks perfect!

At Ventura Eye Institute in Camarillo, California, Dr Michael Ragen and Dr. Kyle Huynh and their professional staff are dedicated to providing you with high-quality eye care in a comfortable environment. They provide eye exams, vision correction, and cosmetic eye procedures to make you see and feel great. 

What is permanent eyeliner?

Permanent eyeliner is a form of micropigmentation that is similar to a tattoo. The procedure involves putting coloring under your top layers of skin.

Benefits of permanent eyeliner

There are many benefits of getting permanent eyeliner, including:

In addition, permanent eyeliner is a great option if you have arthritis hand tremors or vision problems that make it difficult to apply makeup accurately and consistently.

A simple procedure

Before beginning the procedure, Dr. Ragen or Huynh will discuss your aesthetic goals to understand exactly what you want your permanent eyeliner to look like. They will explain the procedure to ensure you understand what will happen and give you time to ask any questions you might have. Once you are ready, your doctor will begin the procedure.

To begin the permanent eyeliner procedure, your doctor will use a local anesthetic to numb the area where the procedure will take place. This will prevent you from experiencing any discomfort during the treatment. Your doctor will use special tools to apply the pigments, and the entire procedure will be completed in about 20 minutes.

You may experience some minor swelling and itching after the procedure, but this should go away after a few days. Be sure to follow any aftercare instructions your doctor gives you, which may include using ice packs for any swelling, avoiding having water on your face, and keeping the treated areas clean.

Permanent makeup is a great option if you like your eyes to look beautiful, but often don’t have the time or the ability to put on makeup accurately. It’s a simple and safe procedure that is completed in an office visit.
