Micropigmentation is the process of applying color to the face with the use of microdermabrasion technology. Permanent makeup is a popular cosmetic technique that makes use of tiny tattoos as an alternative to traditional cosmetics, including lipsticks and eyeliners, to the surface of the skin, cheeks, and eyes. It is one of the most popular ways of changing the natural look of the face to make it more attractive. However, some people are concerned about the risks associated with this cosmetic technique.
One of the major concerns is that permanent makeup can create unattractive lines between the eyebrows, or puffiness around the lips. Another worry is that permanent makeup may leave unwanted scars on the face. There are ways, however, to avoid these risks. One way is to consult with a dermatologist who will analyze your skin before applying micropigsmentation to minimize risks. Skin type, he may advise, should be first considered before trying any cosmetic technique, to ensure the best results. This will also allow you to choose among available cosmetic techniques, including micropigmentation.
A micropigmentation procedure does not involve needles. Rather, a technician injects a special dye into the area to be treated. The dye has been developed for use against a variety of skin colors and is safe for all skin types. The dye is added to a carrier oil, which is then injected into the skin, along with the pigment. The carrier oil is infused with color pigment, so that the skin is illuminated with the light from the device.
One method of micropigmentation used to create eyeliner on the upper part of the eyelid, known as eyeliner penciling, is not the same as micropigmentation. Instead of adding colour to the upper lip using a liner, this technique involves using a stencil on the outside of each eyelid, to create the black or brown lines. Eyeliner pencils are not usually used for this application, due to possible damage to the eyelid and skin around it. The result is an artificial eyelid that lasts longer than the application of liner. There is some discomfort during and after the procedure, but this fades quickly and is no more uncomfortable than the other methods of applying colour to the upper lip.
Another method for creating the appearance of a hairline is called strand pigmentation. In this treatment, tiny plastic trays containing a colourant solution are placed on the hairline. After a short period of time, the trays are removed and the colorant is removed with a cotton swab. The advantage of strand pigmentation over micropigmentation lies in the fact that it does not change the colouration of the hairline. In this method, you can try out different colours and see which suits you best.
There are also cosmetic treatments for eyebrows that do not involve injections or dermal filling. For example, you can enhance your natural features by lightly drawing and sculpting your eyebrows. However, if you want to go the natural way, and avoid the risks involved in cosmetic treatments such as injections and dermal fillers, then there is another option: fake eyebrows. The fake eyebrows can be coloured to match your natural eyebrows; or you can choose to have botanical or herbal eyebrows.
In addition to injecting and using dermal fillers to enhance the volume and shape of your eyes, you can use permanent makeup. If you opt for the traditional permanent makeup techniques, which involve applying a thin layer of pigments under the skin with a brush or sponge, then you will have to wait for several weeks to several months to notice visible results. With the revolutionary micropigmentation techniques, pigments are applied directly to your skin without the need for a brush or sponge.
It is important to note that the application of micropigmentation products will never make you look like a “Hollywood star.” That is, there is no such thing as achieving a Hollywood-style look through microdermabrasion. What this technique will do is make your skin appear to be slightly thicker, which can make you appear to have more depth and youth. In fact, the “look” you get from this treatment is actually closer to “glow” than traditional tattooing.
