Problems with permanent makeup tattoos; New from the Paris Conf (IMCAS)

One important issue discussed at the conference was the increase in permanent makeup tattoos ………with the problems with them increasing as well.  Many times these procedures go well……but when they don’t the very public and visible problem can be devastating and difficult since it’s on the face.

Two important things if you are dealing with this problem of permanent makeup tattoos:

  1.   Absolutely do not try to cover up the problem by covering up the bad tattoo with flesh colored tattoo ink.   The flesh colored tattoo ink is almost impossible to remove with a tattoo removal laser and turns a weird green color.   Better to seek help from an EXPERT tattoo removal dermatologist/plastic surgeon in your area.
  2. If you are really, really in trouble it may be worth considering a trip to Switzerland to get help from one of the world’s experts in the problem.  Her name is Dr. Bettina Claudia Rummelein.

Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
