Micro-Pigmentation, also known as Permanent Make-Up or Cosmetic Tattooing , is a procedure that uses sterilized disposable needles to apply pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. The pigments are made of mineral, iron oxide base colorants. Topical anesthetics are applied to the area prior to the procedure to provide comfort for the client.
MicroBlading is a process where pigment is manually inserted into the upper dermis layer of the skin providing fine brow hairlike strokes using a handheld device with a bladelike needle. Unlike permanent makeup the procedure will last anywhere from 3 months to a year.
Permanent makeup applied to eyes as eyeliner for the upper and lower lids, to the eyebrows, and to lips as a liner or a full fill, all following the natural contours of the face.
An eyeliner procedure defines the lash line and enhances your eye shape. The thickness and color of the liner may vary according to a client’s preference. Pigment is implanted close to the lash line to ensure a natural line.
If you use pencil to define your eyebrows, permanent eyebrows will relieve you of that daily routine. Your eyebrows will last through swimming, aerobic classes, and while you sleep. An eyebrow procedure may take on the appearance of simulated hair strokes or a very light shading of color underneath existing light or sparse eyebrow hairs.
Lip Liner and Lip Color
A lip liner not only defines the existing lip line, but it will also augment the size of the lid or camouflage many scars, such as a cleft lip. Lip augmentation appears to increase the size and fullness of the natural lip line. Anyone with a loss of natural lip color because of the aging process will benefit dramatically from this procedure as they will always look like they are wearing lipstick.
The Link to Cosmetic Surgery
Micro-pigmentation is an excellent post procedure for tattooing areolas after breast reconstruction surgery. It is also helpful for hypopigmentation, scars from post-op and burns. A consultation with an experienced certified technician provides a client with information on the cosmetic improvements and benefits of camouflage tattooing available to them. Hair transplant patients would also benefit from cosmetic tattooing to cover scars and to re-pigment the scalp.
