Permanent makeup, also known as micro pigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, is a technique that uses tattooing equipment to apply pigment to the skin. This pigment is applied in a manner that mimics the appearance of makeup, such as eyeliner, lip color, and eyebrows. The goal of Permanent Makeup is to enhance or define facial features, such as the eyes and lips, or to camouflage scars or areas of the skin that have lost pigmentation due to aging or medical conditions.
The procedure involves the use of a needle to deposit pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. This pigment is then absorbed by the skin's cells, creating a long-lasting color. The procedure is typically done in a series of appointments, with the first appointment used to create the initial color and shape, and follow-up appointments used to refine the color and shape. The results of permanent makeup can last for several years, but the color may fade over time and may require touch-up appointments.
Permanent makeup is a popular option for people who want to save time on their daily makeup routine, as well as for people who have difficulty applying makeup due to physical or visual impairments. It can also be used to correct asymmetry or to enhance the shape of the eyes, lips, and eyebrows. It is essential to do your research and find a reputable and experienced artist for the procedure.
