"non-surgical procedures, that entails implanting pigment into the shallow dermal layers of the skin using a sterile needle and state of the art machinery".
"Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which implants micro- pigmentation into the dermis as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining, lips and eyebrows." Most commonly called semi-permanent makeup, other names include dermapigmentation, micropigmentation and cosmetic tattooing, the latter being most appropriate since permanent makeup is, in fact, a form of tattooing.
What are the results when you opt for permanent makeup?
There are immediate results and long term results. At first the pigment may look darker than desired. This is due to colour remaining in the outermost epidermal layers of skin at the start. In the next few days the colours will soften because of the healing process as the upper layers of epidermis slough and are replaced by new epidermal cells. How long your micropigmentation will last depends from person to person and will be influenced by different factors. For example, sun exposure will fade the colors faster. Frequent excess sweating from sports related activities and saunas can also cause pigment loss and patchiness.
What if you don't like the results?
It is possible to remove the permanent makeup, BUT... it is difficult and expensive. Do take in mind that the removal is often more painful than the tattooing itself!
