Latisse and Permanent Makeup
By: Ashley Cohen  -  4/3/2014

It came to my attention last year that using Latisse causes the user’s eyelid skin to become extremely thin and vascular. 

What this means when it comes to the application of permanent cosmetics is that the tissues which are to be perforated and invested with pigment cannot  hold up to the rapid insertion and retraction of needles in the tattooing process.  Delicate eyelid skin made even more fragile from Latisse tears like tissue paper, causing profuse bleeding, which then flushes the pigment away and makes an already somewhat challenging procedure extremely difficult if not impossible. 

I learned more about this issue at the Permanent Cosmetics teaching forum held in Anaheim last year from Jeanee Lusby, founder of Naturalook in La Jolla, California.  The study she and the makers of Latisse collaborated on determined that Latisse users should discontinue use of the product for up to 6 months to allow eyelid skin and vascular structure to return to normal.  This is not to say that every case is the same.  I’ve had good luck with clients returning within 3 months to complete their service, however; the time frame is an excellent reference for anyone needing to make plans for this procedure.

The above picture is an example of a recent permanent makeup client who had been using Latisse.  The red area of her eyelid is a tear that made the surface unsuitable to continue with the tattooing procedure.  What happens in this case is there may be additional follow ups necessary to complete the service to the client’s satisfaction.

All of the risks that normally apply to the application of permanent cosmetics certainly apply to the Latisse user with elevated concern to scaring and pigment migration.  Selecting a permanent makeup artist who has received adequate training and experience in the field of permanent makeup arts is always the best way to assure great results will be safely achieved.

Ashley Cohen, Bellametrics, & Compassion
By: Ashley Cohen  -  2/1/2014

The image of Quan Yin is present throughout the Bellametrics Salon and website.  She is the Eastern Bodhisattva who became the Goddess of Compassion.  Her name literally means, “To observe the cries of the world”.

Too many people are unhappy with the way they look and it is no small thing to lose physical features to age, accident, or disharmony of health.   It is the idea of compassion that’s at the root of my desire to help others achieve somatic balance and beauty wherever the tools of micro pigmentation can be useful.  This includes many areas of concern from paramedical procedures such as putting the finishing touches on a breast reconstruction to simple eyeliner for the active individual.

As people are beginning to understand how critical it is for each of us to have a peaceful and loving relationship with our reflection, permanent makeup is becoming more widely accepted as an alternative investment much like many cosmetic procedures that are available to us today.   Selecting the right design for a brow is comparable (IMO) to a surgeon’s sculpting of a nose.  Many aspects of an individual’s facial morphology have to be taken into account.

My purpose as a permanent cosmetic professional who cares a great deal for her clients is to create a balanced appearance with the right choice of pigments and shape as well as technique for 3 dimensional tattooing. I consider the happiness of my clients my own form of ‘rational selfishness’ and it is my compassionate endeavor to bring my services to those who are in need.
