Latisse with micro pigmentation and or permanent eyeliner.

There is no contra indication to use on lids with pigmentation or permanent tattooing.  Latisse is biologically active on the hair folicles of the eyelashes and the secretions of the eye.

Shouldn't be a problem.

Latisse was not specifically studies in patients with tattooing or permanent eyeliner. It some individuals, it can darken the skin. For women, especially, this may actually be beneficial because in this rare occurence, it can mimic brown eyeliner.

Of course, you should not apply Latisse on any open wounds, inflamed or irritated areas, which includes your healing period after having micropigmentation or permanent makeup.

Latisse won't change colour

Latisse won't change the colour of your permanent makeup, but it shouldn't be used for a while after you've had your permanent makeup treatment. This is because your eyes will probably need to recover.

Latisse and Permanent Eyeliner

There is certainly no reason not to use Latisse if you have had permanent eyeliner. If anything, Latisse will give an additional effect and magnify the desired result.

Latisse may enhance permanent makeup

Because Latisse can darken skin, it might actually enhance your permanent makeup.  I have noticed on my own permanent eyeliner that I have not needed to touch it up since I starting using bimatoprost and then Latisse 3 years ago for eyelash enhancement, while previously I had to have it touched up every 2 years.

Latisse and micropigmentation

Latisse should not change the color of the eyeliner or micropigmentation, but in some individuals, it can cause darkened pigmentation of the skin and in rare instances, even cause darkening of the iris if it gets into the eyes.
