Anesthesia: As the procedure is most commonly performed by cosmetologists rather than physicians, anesthesia options are limited. A stiff drink may help.

Technique: Ideally, pigment is place between the lashes as a series of closely-spaced dots rather than as a solid thick line.

Variations: Several different handpieces may be employed using anything from a single vibrating needle to a rotating multi-needle cluster. The dots are applied in single or multiple rows depending upon the desired effect and depth of coloring.

Advantages: Freedom from the sometimes difficult task of applying makeup, especially in patients with poor eyesight, oily skin, allergies, chronic eyelash infection, eyelid scarring, arthritis, or those always in a hurry.
