What is Micropigmentation and How is it Applied?
Permanent make-up is a non-surgical procedure known as Micropigmentation. Sterilized disposable needles are used to deposit the desired color just beneath the outer layer of the skin to define and enhance eyebrows, the lash line (upper and lower) and lips. Only long-lasting, quality pigments are used. Examples of some of the results are shown below:
- Permanent Eyeliner
- Permanent Lip Liner
- Permanent Eyebrows
Who Would Be a Candidate for This Procedure?
This artistic process is ideal for women who are athletic, have impaired vision, have arthritic hands, are allergic to cosmetics or “on-the-go” women who always want to look their best.
Before the procedure, the patient will draw the desired shape. The technologist, who has over 20 years experience, will assist and make suggestions. When you are completely satisfied, the technologist begins within the created boundaries.
What Outcomes Can You Expect?
The intent of permanent make-up is permanency. Permanence is affected by sun exposure, medications, skin care products and your skin’s ability to retain color. Some fading may occur, and clients may choose to return for a color touch-up in two to five years. Immediately after the procedure, the colors will appear darker. In the following week or two, about 20% of the color will be exfoliated. At approximately one month after the procedure, there will be a touch-up visit, and at this time, color and design adjustments can be made.
