Permanent Cosmetic Makeup


Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”. The cosmetic implantation technique deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. Permanent cosmetics procedures are performed using various devices, including the traditional tattoo coil machines, the pen or rotary machine and the hand device. The process includes a consultation, the application of pigment, and at least one or more follow up visits for evaluating the healed design work and color of the pigment. Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or pigment in general, fading can and often does occur. Longevity varies from person to person depending on their life style (sun exposure); the color(s) used for the permanent cosmetic procedure, and are also thought to be affected by topical products applied to the skin.

The initial procedure will generally take approximately 1½ to 2 hours; there are records to establish; photographs to take; desired design and color to discuss; the procedure to perform; and the aftercare requirements to discuss. Follow up or color refresher procedures usually do not require the same amount of time.
