How does Dark Circle Concealer Tattooing Work?

With Dark Circles Camouflage / Permanent Concealer application of specially formulated, certified pigments are applied in layers to minimize the dark circles under your eyes. To put it simply: the under-eye tattoo serves as a protective layer between the dark circles themselves and the visible surface skin, which helps reduce the appearance of darker skin under your eyes. Although it is a permanent tattoo, it does fade over the years (3-5) and touchups are required. 

The procedure itself is essentially painless. There can be some redness and swelling immediately after, but these effects should go away within a day or so. Aftercare instructions are given and there is no downtime, meaning you can return to your normal activities. The procedure is extremely safe given that Raquel is a skilled professional in the art of medical and correctional tattooing

Why is Pigment Used?

Unlike a regular tattoo, medical tattooing procedures use a special type of pigment. These pigments are 100% safe and non-irritants. Regular ink molecules are larger and, therefore, permanent. Once the ink is injected into the dermal skin layer, it stays there. Medical pigments have smaller molecules, which are broken down by the body over time. This means medical tattoos fade, although how long this takes will depend on your skin type, the medication you take, your body temperature, and the aftercare treatment. The technique and ink used is different from micro pigmentation so that you can live a normal life and expose it to sunlight.

  1. Is Titanium Dioxide harmful to our body?

  2. Can Titanium Dioxide in white inks turn yellow over time when exposed to heat and sunlight?

 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) categorizes titanium dioxide as Generally Recognized as Safe.

Titanium Dioxide is a component that is in the pigment’s formulation with the function of lightening colours up and normally it is white.

Titanium Dioxide is considered a “heavy” pigment component due to the particle sizes that it has in it. Because of that, the body will take longer to break down the particles than the organism does with the smaller ones.

Through the years, your dark circles camouflage tattooing will fade out and you might need a touch up in the future.
