Permanent makeup is known as cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”.
Permanent Cosmetic procedures can be very subtle or dramatic depending on what you are looking for. Options include:
- Eyeliner, Top and Bottom
- Lipliner, Lip Color, and Blend
- Scar Camouflage, Beauty Marks, Hair imitation, Lash Enhancement, and Areola Repigmentation
Permanent make-up offers you the long-lasting pleasure of always looking good, not feeling so naked when you look into the mirror in the morning and saving quite a bit of time on make-up application.
With permanent make-up, you will not be confronted with your imperfections all the time and you will feel more confident about your looks. When working out, swimming or sweating you will never again have to worry about your eyeliner turning into a black smudge under your eyes, or losing parts of your eyebrows.
People often want an eyeliner, but they give up because their hand is not steady, or because they wear glasses and can’t see it very well. And who enjoys trying to draw a pair of equal eyebrows with a perfect brow line each morning?
The process includes a consultation, the application of pigment, and at least one or two more follow up visits for evaluating the healed design work and color of the pigment.
Permanent make-up does not always have to be notably visible.
Originally, permanent make-up was meant to add natural-looking accents and sometimes it was said that…
<h3><i>“A nice permanent make-up is not noticed, but who has it looks noticeably better”.</i></h3>
The choice is yours, striking or natural.
Permanent make-up gives you a comfort that once you have it, you want to have it always!
A topical anesthetic is used prior to and during each procedure to help with client comfort.
Permanent cosmetics procedures are performed using various devices, including the traditional tattoo coil machines, the pen or rotary machine (includes the digital rotary machines) and the non-machine or hand device.
People who meet minimum age requirements and have the ability to heal properly from minor wounds can benefit from the benefits of permanent makeup. Interest in this service spans the young to the more mature; those who desire a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance. It is especially valuable to people who can’t wear traditional cosmetics due to allergies and skin sensitivities; active people who want to look their best for sports activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, tennis, aerobics; and those who don’t want to worry about “sweating off” or reapplying cosmetics. Permanent makeup also benefits the vision challenged who have difficulty applying their cosmetics; and others with dexterity related conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke survivors, and busy people who don’t have time to spend applying and refreshing makeup throughout the day and evening.
Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or colorant (pigment) in general, fading can and often does occur within two to five years, requiring periodic maintenance referred to as color re-enhancement or color refreshing; and if you wear topical makeup, those colors have changed as well and determine if any changes are appropriate.
Permanent makeup slowly fades due to our skin’s natural “cleaners” which are present in
this skin layer and due to the exposure to UV light, to become most of the time near to
invisible, but some parts of the pigment will always remain in the skin, whether visible or
not, varies with each individual.
