Permanent makeup is cosmetic tattooing. There are many fancy marketing terms out there like “micro-pigmentation” and “semi-permanent” and they all mean the same thing…the tattooing of makeup. It is the art and science of implanting pigment through the epidermal layer of the skin into the upper dermal layer of the skin.
Permanent Makeup can help people on many different levels. Everyone can benefit. For some it is convenient and saves time. It can mean feeling like a woman again after breast cancer surgery. Ever feel as if your eye sight is not what it use to be, making it difficult to apply makeup. Or maybe you suffer from allergies or skin sensitivities to topical makeup. Some medical conditions such as parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, having alopecia or being a stroke survivor can make putting on makeup a real challenge or even impossible.
Does It Hurt?
Once again this is where the skill of the technician is very important and not only can but will make all the difference. With the topical anesthetics available to us today, discomfort is very minimal and works for most.
How Long Does It Last?
All color fades and that is just a fact. The color our hairstylist uses for our highlights fade, the paint on our cars fade and at a much faster rate if a car is left outside compared to a car that is parked in the garage, even the professional and industrial paint used on our homes fade in time. Everything has a life span and nothing lasts forever. The expensive fillers millions of people are using like Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm, although they wonderfully get rid of lines and creases which in turn make us look younger, wear off and must be re-applied every three to six months on average. We even see our manicurist every two to four weeks. Everything fades or degrades with time. Permanent Makeup, however, lasts longer than most other beauty/cosmetic procedures while comparably priced. Permanent makeup can last years for some and others will need to refresh their color annually. It is my experience that although some will need to refresh their color annually it will last much longer for most. All permanent makeup fades due to the exfoliation process, this is the process of the epidermis continually shedding and regenerating itself. Permanent makeup will last longer for some and not as long for others due most importantly to lifestyle, health, and skin type. Some contributing factors that will accelerate fading are: sun exposure, using products that promote cell regeneration (Retin-A, Renova, Glycolics and Alpha Hydroxy Acids), extra oily skin which regenerates more rapidly, unhealthy skin, medications, and smoking.
Permanent makeup is done with Pigment and not ink. We use pigments, because we want our eyebrows to look natural. We prefer the soft blondes, the beautiful shades of brown, and taupes for our eyebrows. Some like black for their eyeliners but others prefer the black/browns, charcoal, or the medium and even soft browns. To achieve these beautiful colors we are using pigments formulated specifically for the face.
