Permanent Makeup Tourism
A new trend that is making waves in the media, “permanent makeup tourism” refers to traveling to another state or country for Permanent makeup. With an estimated 75,000 people from the United States traveling abroad each year, it’s clear that this trend is becoming increasingly popular. Permanent cosmetic are among the most common procedures sought by travelers.
Because artist in other countries may not be held to the same rigorous standards as the ones certified in the U.S., traveling abroad for Permanent Cosmetics can be a dangerous prospect. Tamara D. Ferrigno a certified Micropigmentation artist, does not advocate for international permanent makeup tourism and emphasizes the importance of keeping your Permanent Cosmetic travels limited to the United States.
At MM Brows, we see subjects from all over the globe who are seeking a variety of procedures from an experienced cosmetic MIcropigmentation expert. Mrs. Tamara D. Ferrigno is dedicated to assisting out of town Guest and strive to provide resources that benefit Permanent makeup tourists visiting Las Vegas and make the process safe, successful, and rewarding.
Deciding to Travel for Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic makeup results may be with you for a lifetime and finding a permanent cosmetic artist who has the right training, expertise, and aesthetic style to meet your needs is essential. Traveling opens up your options for finding the Permanent cosmetic artist who is right for you, if not close to you.
Whether coming from overseas or trekking domestically, traveling to or within the U.S. in pursuit of the results you want can be done safely and successfully. There are a multitude of reasons people to choose to travel for cosmetic Permanent Makeup, including avoiding excessive wait times in their countries or seeking procedural expertise not available in their town.
Some patients travel to keep their cosmetic permanent makeup “under the radar,” which can be difficult in some smaller towns. Spending your initial Healing period away from home can also allow you to focus solely on relaxing and recuperating during this important part of the permanent cosmetic process.
Whatever the reason, there is a right and safe way to approach Permanent cosmetic tourism.
