Permanent Cosmetics, also referred to as micro-pigmentation, cosmetic tattooing or dermal-pigmentations, is a process where completely natural pigments are implanted beneath the epidermis (top layer of skin), into the dermal layer (second layer of skin), by micro insertion.
This technique has been medically developed and specially designed for a safe permanent application. Natural looking eyeliner, lip-liner and full lip-color can now be safely and comfortably applied to the dermal layer of the skin.
The pigments used have been specially formulated for cosmetic application. Not to be compared with traditional tattooing, in which permanent skin dyes and inks are placed into the skin.
A variety of factors influence the longevity of Permanent Cosmetics.
Ultra-violet exposure from sun or tanning booths, various drugs, excessively dry skin, and smoking are all factors that may affect the lifetime of the cosmetics.
Alpha-hydroxy, Retin-A and glycolic acid must be kept away from treated areas. These kinds of substances slough away top layers of the skin and eventually the layer that the pigment has been implanted into. Avoid using chemical peels and exfoliating scrubs over the permanent makeup.
Sun block on eyebrows, sunglasses and SPF on lips will greatly prolong the effective life of these procedures.
The use of some make up removers may jeopardize the longevity of your permanent makeup.
Be sure to use a sun block once lips are healed. Do not use any Glycolic, Hydroxy, Carmex or Fruit Acid products on lips.
Permanent cosmetics benefit everyone from the young to the elderly, who desire a natural enhancement to their appearance. Whether it has become difficult to apply makeup, or a medical skin condition may be the cause, most everyone can benefit from the conveniences offered by permanent cosmetics.
Permanent cosmetics help one’s self esteem and confidence, others can benefit from the freedom of reapplying eyebrows, lip-liner, eyeliner and full lip color.
Permanent cosmetics are ageless, smudge-proof, permanent make-up that can greatly reduce or eliminate time spent on daily make-up routines.
