Does anyone have any research on intradermal cosmetics, ie. permanent make-up? Tatoo eyeliner and lipstick? Know anyone with scleroderma who has had this done?
Thanks!

I myself would not advise it. Only because there can be batched up jobs then you will not be happy. I would seriously reconsider it though. But I can't tell you what to do, but no I have not heard of anyone doing this, I do have two tat's but not by my eyes or lips. Sam

A friend of mine with alopecia had her eyebrows tatooed on and she was very disappointed with the results.

The color was not what she had hoped it would be and she was stuck with it. She ended up having to use eyebrow pencil to right the color everyday and she might as well have not had it done at all.

I had my eyeliner tatooed on last month and it looks great! I love it! It healed with no scaring and it all stayed on. (That was my doctors concern-that it may scar or all scab off). I want to have my lips done but everyone tells me is doesn't last.

I just had my rheumatologist appt. I asked him about having my lips injected for fullness. He about jumped out of his seat and said absolutely NOT! He feels strongly that when injecting anything into our bodies with this disease is asking for trouble. Since our bodies don't even know they are killing off good cells now - he said when a person has sclero you just don't know how the immune system is going to see that foreign product. He said he's seen cases with lip injections and eyeliner etc, when the body reacts to it, not sure what it is and the patient ends up with terribly deformed end product.

I'm bummed, but I will abide by his knowledge.
