Permanent Cosmetic Make-up, also known as Micro-dermal pigmentation, involves placement of pigment into the dermis to emulate everyday cosmetic makeup. Although similar to tattooing, it differs in technique, pigment and selection of needles. It is used to enhance an individual's unique physical qualities, not to change or alter their appearance. This technique is primarily used for creation, correction, reshaping or enhancing eyebrows, eye lines and lip lines. Lash enhancement and lash perming are simple but unique procedures. Special paramedical applications include areola pigmentation following breast surgery and corrective pigment camouflage for vitiligo and alopecia.
What is Permanent Make-up?
The term Permanent make-up is very confusing for so many people. It is an established beauty procedure that dates back to Cleopatra. The carefully applied hypoallergenic permanent pigments, made of pure, inorganic minerals, are placed in the dermal layer of the skin. There are no fragrances, emollients or other ingredients added. This procedure is considered permanent since the implanted pigment cannot be washed off. Over time however, all of the color will need to be reapplied. Permanent make-up is a safe and painless process, approved by doctors, and favorably reviewed by many respected beauty writers. Prior to the 1990's, this procedure was unregulated and performed usually by untrained individuals. Today, trained and certified personnel who follow the guidelines of the National Board of Micro-pigmentation can only offer permanent make-up.
Benefit of Permanent Make-up?
Potential clients include anyone who desires a natural enhancement and freedom from the daily application of makeup. Individuals with sensitive skin, allergies to conventional makeup or oily skin that does not hold onto ordinary makeup or people with thin or sparse eyelashes or eyebrows, or asymmetric eyebrows are good candidates. Physically active individuals can feel confident that their makeup is not compromised during exercise. Permanent cosmetic make-up is especially helpful for persons facing physical limitations such as arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, limited motor skills, and visual impairment. Eunai Danek remembers a client with trembling hands and poor eyesight who was frustrated as she spent over one hour a day to pencil in eyebrows. After getting permanent eyebrows and eyeliner, she was in tears and said, " I am so happy I had this done! I am going to look great every day without wasting any time putting on makeup." Even her husband appreciated the time saving.
