Micropigmentation FAQ!

WHAT IS MICROPIGMENTATION ?

MICROPIGMENTATION ( is also known as semi permanent makeup) is the ART and SCIENCE of implanting color into your skin. It is putting the right pigment in the right place so you can look better naturally. It is also an effective treatment that resolves and/or improves many aesthetic problems.

IS MICROPIGMETATION AND TATTOOING IS THE SAME?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Most people refer to micropigmentation as cosmetic tattooing, which is incorrect. The principle seems to be similar to tattooing in that a pigment is implanted into the skin, but the aesthetic result is quite different. Micropigmentation can not be done with tattoo pigments and machines.

Tattoo Machines are not appropriate to do such a delicate job and provide natural, multidimensional or a stroke by stroke affect. Micropigmentation procedures are much more tolerable. Micropigmentation uses numbing anesthetic cream which is generously applied 30 minutes before the procedure and is reapplied to avoid any uncomfortable pain.

HOW LONG WILL MY PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?

Micropigmentation lasts a long time, but not forever. As you become accustomed to your new makeup look, it’s not uncommon to want more. You will want to freshen up your new makeup every couple of years.

NOTE: Chlorine, sweat, salt water, sun, tanning beds are all reasons why your permanent makeup will fade faster.

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

MICROBLADING is a NEW semi-permanent, superficial, revolutionary procedure that allows people with little or no hair to have natural looking eyebrows. It is perfect for Men and Women, for people going for super natural NO MAKEUP effect and is ideal to cover scars and gaps, define shape, create an arch and fill in brows.

Microblading is a new way of implanting pigment under the epidermis by using a specially designed fine blade that is three times thinner than a machine. This allows you to get fine, crisp hair strokes.
