Permanent makeup (also known as cosmetic tattoos) include the usage of hypoallergenic pigments to help aesthetically improve the shape, color and overall appearance of facial features such as lips, eyes and eyebrows. Unlike regular makeup, permanent makeup will last for many years to come. It is a very popular cosmetic procedure, allowing people to participate in everyday activities, from intense physical workouts to a leisurely swim without worrying about ruining their appearance, which is a common occurrence with normal makeup. It is also helpful for people to mask any imperfections or scars on their lips and eyebrows.
Microblading is a common cosmetic technique that utilizes a thin blade to deposit permanent (and safe) pigments into your skin. The certified technician will draw thin and realistic looking lines (resembling hair strands) to give you a natural look. The makeup will last anywhere from one to three years depending on your skin type, lifestyle and your skincare routine.
Micropigmentation is a new practice. It uses ultra-thin needles to place pigments into the dermal layer of the skin resembling “spots”. Unlike the lines used in microblading, this technique uses dots of color to produce the same effect.
