Permanent Makeup Procedures

Permanent makeup procedures are performed by licensed aestheticians, dermatologists, and tattoo artists. Micropigmentation (permanent makeup) will enhance your natural beauty, plus support your desire to streamline your daily care routine.

Micropigmentation Results

Micropigmentation is often referred to as a permanent process. It is, however, a semi-permanent procedure. Micropigmentation can last for several years. Touch-ups will be needed as pigment fades.

The part of the face that is being treated during a micropigmentation session will influence how long the pigment will last. The pigment that is used to administer a faux lip liner may not last as long as the pigment that is used to create faux brows. This is due to the differentiation in the texture of the lips and the texture of the skin on the face. 

The Intake

The intake process typically involves a consultation. The consultation allows a service provider to learn about the type of makeup techniques that a client uses during their normal care routine.

The service provider will assess a client's facial skin. This assessment will furnish the provider with vital information about a client's skin type. If an individual has oily skin or acne, they may not receive the same results as someone with dry, clear skin.

The Portfolio

Facial tattooing requires great skill. A licensed service provider may have a portfolio of their work. A client can review the examples in the portfolio. The examples may help a client choose a specific micropigmentation process.

The Micropigmentation Process

A numbing agent will prevent discomfort during the micropigmentation process. Micropigmentation is essentially a tattooing technique. A service provider uses a single-use needle to administer pigment to the skin. The needle is injected into clean, dry skin.

If a client would like to receive dramatic results, a service provider may perform a micropigmentation process during multiple sessions. Micropigmentation can be used to mimic eyeliner and lipliner. It can also be used to camouflage facial scars. If a camouflaging technique is going to be conducted, a service provider will use pigment that matches a client's skin tone.

Care Techniques

After a micropigmentation process is complete, a client will need to take good care of their skin.

Tattooed skin is prone to becoming infected. A service provider may recommend that a client refrains from exposing their skin to direct sunlight. They will advise a client on the proper way to clean their skin each day.

The use of exfoliating agents could cause pigmented skin to fade. A cosmetic permanent makeup service provider can recommend some facial products that will preserve the pigment.
