Permanent Makeup is a procedure used to add colour to your skin, specifically eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. The effect will last 1-3 years instead of needing daily application. This will save valuable time and allow you to look your best at all times.
Why Do People Have Permanent Makeup
It is mostly used by women and common reasons would be :
- Over-plucked eyebrows, leading to sparse areas
- Chemo treatments, Trichotillomania, Loss of, or poor sight, Parkinson’s
- Allergies to conventional makeup
- Loss of colour in lips due to the ageing process, to correct asymmetries in lips
- Those that like to swim, go to the gym or other forms of exercise
- Those that want thicker, fuller looking lashes
- Busy women who want to save time in the morning and want to look their best at all times
How Is Permanent Makeup Applied?
Semi-permanent make-up is applied either by hand (microblading) or machine under the epidermal layer of skin. Since epidermal skin cells die and regenerate the effects of the make-up will not last forever, unlike a normal tattoo. Permanent makeup is for individuals who want to change subtle things about their look to accent or improve certain features. It is important to note that permanent makeup is about subtleties. While semi-permanent make-up is an art form, it is not an obvious art form like a tattoo.
What Is a Normal Process from Start to Finish?
Applying permanent makeup is a process that starts with a consultation. At the consultation, a patch test will be carried out to ensure the client is not allergic to any of the pigments used. Pigment tone, shape, and colour are examined before starting the first procedure.
On the first appointment eyebrows will be drawn on with pencil to show the client the exact shape they will be once completed. Once the technician, and client are happy with the shape the pigmentation process will begin. The technician will insert pigment into the epidermis of your skin using a specially designed permanent makeup machine (this is different to a conventional tattoo machine).
Once the procedure is complete, a special aftercare cream will be added to help the skin heal. Your technician should also give you full aftercare advice. Clients return 6 weeks later later for a follow-up to check on how the pigment is staying applied after the skin heals.
As mentioned above, epidermal skin cells regenerate, so the death and rebirth of cells changes the tone of the makeup, especially within the first few weeks after the procedure. Thus, there is a touch-up procedure to finalise the new permanent look for each client. Treatments such as eyeliner where a thick or bold look is required takes multiple sessions and creates a gradual change in one’s appearance.
Who Can I Trust To Perform Permanent Makeup On My Face?
The quality of the equipment, materials that create the pigment, and the shape of the makeup are important factors to consider if you choose to get permanent makeup. Since permanent makeup is about subtleties, it helps to have a professional who is well versed on a variety of pigment tones and facial shapes. With a procedure as delicate as applying chemicals under layers of skin, having higher quality equipment will reduce any risks which might arise in the procedure.
Why Permanent Makeup?
Permanent Makeup is one of the most rapidly growing beauty trends. Permanent makeup lasts for one to three years before needing a colour boost and can be used to add depth to eyelashes, shape to lips, or create fuller eyebrows. The procedure is a gradual change, utilising the epidermal layer’s ability to create new skin cells in order to enhance beauty. Permanent makeup is applied with multiple treatments.
