Q. What do you advise for rosacea patients who are considering permanent (tattoo) makeup rather than tolerating the reactions of regular makeup?
A. The ink in tattoos may be irritating to the sensitive skin of rosacea patients, and because tattoo makeup is permanent, any irritation caused by the ink may be present as long as the ink is present. While tattoos may be removed, the process may be difficult and unsuccessful, and is costly and time-consuming as well.
