What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup (also known as “cosmetic tattooing” or “micropigmentation”) is growing as a popular choice for women who want to define their facial features without having to apply traditional makeup throughout the day. The procedure is short and involves the delicate insertion of pigments into the top layer of your skin with a needle. Results are natural and long-lasting so you may find yourself storing away your makeup brushes and tools after choosing permanent makeup. Permanent makeup comes in a variety of different applications:
- For top and bottom eyeliner
- For eyebrows
- For the lips – including lip liner and full color
- For the areola after breast reconstruction surgery
Am I a Candidate for Permanent Makeup?
A major reason why so many women are choosing permanent makeup is that it’s a solution for a variety of issues. It can be used to as a permanent “scar camouflage” to repigment discolored scars so that they match the surrounding skin. Men who have areas of facial hair loss from scarring or other causes can also benefit from permanent makeup. The tattooing fills in these areas with small dark dots to give a shaved beard appearance. It’s an excellent choice for those who just want better defined, face-framing features with permanent cosmetics. If you want to add volume and thicken up faint eyebrows, have a health condition that keeps you from applying makeup with a steady hand, or want to cover up a scar or skin discoloration, permanent makeup can help. Permanent makeup may be right for you if you have:
- Hair loss problems or are experiencing thinning hair
- Discolored scars
- Sensitivity to cosmetic makeup
- Poor vision or mobility that makes applying makeup difficult
