WHAT IS MICROPIGMENTATION AND HOW CAN IT BENEFIT ME?
Micropigmentation, or permanent make up, is an innovative cosmetic procedure that enables both men and women to enhance the shape of their eyebrows, hairline, lips, eyes, and more, through the process of depositing pigment into the skin’s dermal layer. This smudge-free treatment lasts for years and is a great way to restore confidence and self-esteem in those with alopecia, hair loss, chemotherapy patients, and more.
How is Permanent Make-up Performed?
Permanent makeup is performed by inserting a small, thin needle and hypoallergenic mineral pigment into the second layer of the skin to lightly contour and enhance the lips, eyes, or eyebrows, and more. Your doctor will wear gloves during the procedure in order to prevent the spread of germs and other issues. This procedure differs from cosmetic tattoos in that it uses a different pigment than tattoo ink, and it also less invasive. The instrument used is also slightly less advanced than tattoo devices. Though, micropigmentation is usually a minimally painful procedure, depending on the area treated, some patients may receive anaesthesia prior to treatment in order to make it more comfortable.
What to Expect Following the Procedure
Following treatment, patients will typically experience some swelling in the area treated. However, your specialist will instruct you on how frequently to apply ice to the area as well as what type of ointment to apply in order to help reduce the swelling. Patients who receive treatment in the eye area may also experience tearing afterwards, which is common. Therefore, your doctor will require that you have someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Following your procedure, your doctor will also provide you with antiseptic to clean the treated area, and she or he may also advise that you avoid sunlight as well as certain products, like peroxide, as these can have a negative effect on your procedure. Your colouring may appear more intense following the procedure; however, it will gradually fade within a few weeks.
Why is micropigmentation done?
Micropigmentation offers a permanent makeup effect. Micropigmentation can be used to produce eyeliner, enhance the lips, eyebrows and can even be used to create the areola in women who have undergone breast reconstruction following breast cancer treatment. Micropigmentation should last for up to five years, but it will generally fade over time.
Micropigmentation offers a solution for the following:
- You want to save time on applying makeup.
- You are allergic to makeup.
- Your eyebrows are thin, asymmetrical or absent due to alopecia or chemotherapy.
- Applying makeup is physically difficult because of another health condition.
- Your lips are thin or lack volume.
- You want to hide a scar.
- To create the appearance of scalp hair for people who’ve suffered hair loss.
