Micropigmentation is a medical term for permanent makeup.
With our lives getting more and more hectic, it is no wonder we are always seeking to cut off some of the time spent doing things. And with that comes the invention of permanent makeup. Think about it. How much time does the average female spend putting on their makeup in the morning, wouldn't it be quicker and simpler if some of that was already done for you each morning.
Micropigmentation is actually a beauty procedure which actually involves the application of makeup in the form of a tattoo. Typically, this type of makeup is applied to the eyebrows, eyeliner and even the lips. This is a non-surgical treatment.
What is the recovery time for Micropigmentation?
Everyone is different, but a general rule would be 3-7 days on the surface, and another 10-14 days below the surface. It is common for a person to return to work the same day. Lips will have some residual swelling and will chap. There may be slight swelling after the eyeliner; brows may look darker than usual - all of which softens in a few days.
How long will it last?
Normally one to five years maybe longer. Re-enhancements otherwise known as "touchups' or "refresher color boosts" are recommended for maintenance. You must remember that permanent makeup is a "low", not a "no" maintenance procedure. You eventually will need a color touchup when your color fades. Once the color lightens you will know that you are ready for your refresher color boost! You cannot avoid this fact - everything fades with time, especially anything out in the sun.
What if the shape isn't what I want?
Everything is drawn on with semi-permanent marker prior to the start of any procedure, so you will see exactly what is going to be done before anything permanent is applied.
