Permanent Cosmetic Makeup is an increasingly popular way for today’s woman to look her best and feel confident about herself. A procedure which was once only available to the rich and famous is now available to women in all walks of life. Whether you’re the young mother, the working CEO, or the busy grandmother, you can enjoy this convenient, modern, and safe procedure to enhance your looks and make your life a lot easier.
What is Permanent Cosmetic Makeup? This is a revolutionary procedure of applying micro insertions of natural pigments to the dermal layer of the skin. It has been around for a long time and has been extremely popular on the west coast. Pigments used are hypo-allergenic and can be used to create a natural look, or if desired, a more dramatic look with richer colors. The pigments are MRI safe and fade resistant.
What areas best benefit from Permanent cosmetic makeup? Eyebrows can enhance the face and define the eyes. Unfortunately, some women were not born with full eyebrows and some women, as they age and go through menopause, will lose their eyebrows. No one wants to go around without eyebrows. Applying eyebrow pencil everyday and checking in the mirror every few minutes to make sure the eyebrow pencil hasn’t smudged, or is still there, can be a nuisance. Permanent cosmetic makeup is the smart answer to this embarrassing problem. The procedure looks very natural and the eyebrows can be shaped to bring out the best featuers of the eyes and face. Anyone who desires more dullness of the brows, especially those who use an eyebrow pencil, will love this procedure, saving them up to thirty minures a day enabling them to go swimming, play tennis, or wipe their forehead without the embarrassment of wiping off their brows. Beautiful eyes deserve beautiful brows and permanent cosmetic makeup is the answer.
Eyeliner can open the eyes and give a defined beautiful appearance. Colors can be used to bring out the blue or green in a person’s eye’s without it obviously looking like color has been applied. The greatest benefit from permanent eyeliner is no more runny eyeliner. You can wake up every morning with beautiful eyes and you don’t have that washed out look. A subtle natural look can be created mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes, which is popular with men and women. Additional shadowing of color can create a “smudged” look or a more bold definite line adds to the shape of the eyes. Women who wear glasses or contact lenses have difficulty applying eyeliner and permanent makeup eliminates this problem.
Lips are a natural attraction. Older women can put back the color time has erased. As women age they experience loss of pigment in their lips. Permanent cosmetic make up can redefine the lips and add either a natural color or you can add more color which looks like lipstick. This procedure helps to prevent lipstick from bleeding into the facial lines surronding the lips as a result of aging. The lips can look naturally lined and if you have uneven lips, such as a one sided cupids bow, that can be corrected giving a beautifully even shaped lip. Your certified derma technician can create your own individual color which enhances your skin tone.
Permanent cosmetic makeup can also help women who have had a mastectomy. After the plastic surgeon has removed and reconstructed the breast, permanent cosmetic makeup can be used to recreate the appearance of the areola. If the plastic surgeon has already constructed the areola and nipple, permanent makeup can be used to add natural looking color back to the area.
What is involved in recovery? In most cases there will be slight swelling and redness of the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately following the procedure. Normal healing is a process with final results not fully realized for at least two weeks.
