Micropigmentation, also called permanent makeup, is especially helpful if you are a person who wants to look their best while avoiding the physical challenges of applying makeup. Eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids, lips are common treatment areas. Considerations include number of treatments needed, complications and out-of-pocket costs.
What Is Micropigmentation?
Micropigmentation, also known as permanent makeup, permanent cosmetics or cosmetic tattooing, is a cosmetic procedure used to improve or replace lost colouring on your skin. Micropigmentation is most often used on your face – to enhance eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids (as eyeliner) and lips. It’s also used to camouflage or improve scars, even out skin colouring and restore colour to areas of skin that have lost colour
Micropigmentation is semi-permanent makeup treatments performed by a professional. Micropigmentation is sometimes referred to as semi-permanent makeup. It is also a non-invasive semi-permanent makeup treatment. It may be performed to enhance the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids for eyeliner and lips (to colour correct). Micropigmentation can also be used to camouflage or improve the appearance of scars, even out skin tone and restore colour to areas of skin that have lost colour because of conditions like vitiligo. It reduces the time spent on applying makeup and, in the long run, it reduces the cost of buying makeup.
Micropigmentation is popular amongst people who were born with sparse eyebrows, as well as those struggling with hair loss due to a medical condition.
The technique used to deliver pigment during a brows treatment means it’s suitable for all brow and skin types – even oily complexions! Plus, the microdot approach is less traumatic to the skin than microblading, with minimal skin damage.
Micropigmentation machine, needles, and pigment are purpose-built to create a more permanent effect, but are very different from traditional tattooing. Our Micropigmentation Specialists are able to select the size of needle and exact depth of penetration. This allows a much higher degree of precision then standard cosmetic tattooing and a consistent distribution of pigment.
Some Medical Conditions That Make Applying Or Using Makeup Challenging Include:
- Conditions that result in unsteady hands, such as severe arthritis, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.
Micropigmentation May Also Be A Treatment Or Solution To Some Medical Conditions Including:
- To replace eyebrows that are thinning due to age or underlying medical conditions.
- To mimic an areola (the perimeter surrounding the nipple) subsequent to breast interventions.
- As a continuation of facial reconstructive procedures.
- As a permanent solution if you have allergies to traditional, temporary makeup.
- To camouflage lack of colour to the skin due to vitiligo.
Micropigmentation Procedures Are Also Considered For Purely Personal Reasons, Such As:
- You don’t like applying makeup on a daily basis.
- You’d like to have fuller looking or better defined eyebrows or eyelashes.
- You have scars you’d like to improve with tattoo pigment.
- You’d like better defined or richer coloured lips
Special note to young people: If you are a young person, you really need to think carefully if you want a micropigmentation procedure. What’s “hot” in beauty fashion today, may not be tomorrow’s trend and you don’t want to be stuck with an undesirable look. Also, facial features change as you age.
How Is Micropigmentation Done?
Most procedures only require a topical anesthetic to numb the skin and keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Typically, micropigmentation can be performed in an office setting. The procedure is performed with a pen-like instrument or standard attoo gun. The needle will puncture a few millimeters into the middle skin layer (dermis), and an iron oxide pigment is introduced. Your cosmetic specialist will be wearing medical gloves during the process.
What Is The Follow-Up Care After A Micropigmentation Procedure?
Some patients may require more than one treatment to achieve the desired result. Make sure you understand exactly how many treatments you will need for the procedure you want. As the pigment fades over the years, you also may have to undergo additional treatments to maintain the look.
Most procedures take from 30 minutes to several hours to perform (from preparation to end of procedure; time depends on complexity of procedure). After the procedure, your specialist will give you an antiseptic to keep the treated region clean. In addition, you may be given an ointment to keep the area soft and promote healing. Sometimes a bandage may be applied to protect the area for several hours after the procedure.
