As we approach the new millennium, advancements for beauty and convenience have reached new levels. Permanent Cosmetic makeup is a revolutionary new procedure of applying micro insertions of natural pigments to the dermal layer of the skin.
This premier state-of-the-art technique is medically developed and specifically designed for a completely safe, permanent application for various procedures: eyebrows, lip liner, scar camouflage, cleft lip repigmentation, eyeliner, full lipstick, areola restoration, and vitiligo.
Who benifits from Permanent Cosmetics? Men as well as women — busy people with little time to apply makeup, people with allergies to conventional makeup, athletic people and those with oily skin who tend to shed makeup easily, and anyone who desires freedom and convenience from daily makeup application. The procuedure has been used by entertainers, actresses, and models such as Elizabeth Taylor, Dolly Parton, Racquel Welch, Cher and others.
Let’s look at the various procedures:
The permanent makeup procedure for lip liner is beautiful! It can appear as if to change the size and shape of the lips as well as the color. This procedure helps to prevent lipstick from bleeding into surrounding skin. It can also camouflage facial lines surrounding the lips as a result of aging. A soft pickish/red similar to the color of a newborn baby, is popular for those wanting a natural look. A more dramatic color can be achieved.
A permanent makeup procedure can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows, especially those who use a pencil will love the procedure saving them up to 30 minutes every day, enabling them to go swimming, play tennis or wipe their forehead without the embarrassment of no eyebrows. Alopecia suffers are pleasantly surprised at how natural it looks.
A subtle natural look, mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes, which is popular with men and women, is achieved by implantation of pigments in the lash line. Additional shadowing of color can create a “smudged” look, or a more bold definite line can be created as well. Ophthalmologists recommend these procedures for those who are allergic to conventional makeup and for those who wear contact lenses.
With permanent makeup, you may choose a wide variety of colors to closely match the colors you are already wearing or have colors custom blended to meet your needs. You choose where the pigments are to be placed and determine the shape you want them to take.
After the procedure, 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.
