Permanent cosmetic makeup is also known as derma pigmentation or micro pigmentation, but it is all the same thing, the use of a tattoo instead of traditional cosmetics. It is especially popular with people who have sensitive skin and allergies to regular cosmetics. There are lots of looks that can be done, from camouflaging scar tissue to copying regular makeup in things like lip liner and eyebrow enhancement.
The length of time that this will last will depend on many factors, including the type of skin that the procedure is performed on and what dyes are used. The consultant will be able to give a more accurate idea but you can use 3 – 8 years as a guide.
Getting eyeliner just right can be tricky and time consuming, so this procedure is amongst the most popular. It is also a procedure that is regularly recommended to people who have allergies or sensitivities to eye makeup as a better alternative to regular cosmetics.
A common application is on the lips. It is possible to change the shape of lips to something more pleasing with a permanent lip liner. Lips can also be made to look more full and lush. In addition a permanent lip dye can be applied, which will reduce the necessity to apply and reapply lipstick and lip color. This is also great for people who enjoy swimming or indulging in sweaty sports.
Using permanent cosmetic makeup for camouflaging or covering scars and marks is also a common procedure. A way to diminish the appearance of scars is by covering them with a tattoo in the same shade as the surrounding skin. People who have scars from burns can often benefit from this technique. This is a good procedure for people who are self-conscious about their scars.
Many people are now choosing to use this technique after various types of breast surgery, such as lifts and enhancements or even mastectomies. Areolas that are missing can be inked in. Areolas can also be enhanced by making them larger, or giving them a more pleasing color or shape. This technique is especially effective on white scars, such as those left by stitches.
It is usually a good idea to discuss permanent cosmetic makeup procedures, and the desired outcomes with an experienced professional. They will be able to offer individually tailored information and advice in order to allow an informed decision about the required procedures.
