What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup (also called: micro-pigmentation, derma-pigmentation, permanent cosmetics and cosmetic tattooing) is a specialized technique of cosmetic tattoo that is used to achieve a long-lasting look that mimics makeup. The pigmentation is deposited within the upper dermal layer of the skin.
Although it is called permanent makeup, it does fade over time due to the structure of the pigment molecules changing. Touch up procedures may be necessary to maintain results over time. Plus, individual colour tastes change over time as well, so the black liner might look better as dark brown or the dramatic red lips might look better as a softer neutral red 5 years later.
Permanent Makeup Treatment Options
This is now one of the most common forms of permanent makeup currently being performed. A blade is used to etch pigment into the skin. Mimicking a hair strand, strokes can be etched both fine and thicker, the deeper the pigment is etched into the skin, the broader the hair stroke.
Achieved by using a permanent makeup tattooing machine to fill the area in full. This is a longer treatment than Micro-blading and the pigment will last much longer as it is denser and placed deeper in the skin.
Lips can be filled, lined, straightened, rounded and even create a pout illusion. During your lip treatment, a permanent makeup tattooing machine will be used to deposit the pigment in linear fashion deeper in the skin. At Art of SKIN we don’t allow our patients to experience unnecessary pain. Before your treatment, we can give you a full dental block so the procedure isn’t uncomfortable.
Eye Liner is applied with a permanent makeup tattooing machine. This area can also encompass lash enhancement. Whether you are looking at wanting a lash enhancement, permanent wet/dry pigment liner, a fine line or wing-tipped liner all will save you time each morning. The newest term in eyeliner is “En fleek” which is a well-defined line, instead of a fade or ombré look. During the eyeliner treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before and during the treatment. After the treatment, you will be able to see the results immediately.
