Permanent Make-up – A Time Saving Option

Applying some cosmetics can be bothersome, especially if you have a physical condition that makes this difficult. Permanent makeup is possible through a procedure called micropigmentation in which an organic pigment is embedded beneath the skin to add permanent color. The procedure involves the use of a hand-held device that punctures the skin hundreds of times per minute with a very thin needle and pushes the pigment into the desired location. Micropigmentation is used to permanently enhance eyes, eyebrows and lips.

With this procedure, our trained nurse specialist can inject iron oxide pigment into the middle layer of your skin (the dermis) for results that last longer than the eyeliner you have in your bathroom drawer. It can also be known as “dermagraphics” or “permanent make-up.”

Who’s A Candidate For Micropigmentation?

We mentioned that anyone with physical limitations may seek out this procedure, but anyone (male or female) can have it done. Do you want to improve the appearance of thin eyebrows or lips? Do you have allergies to make-up that create a problem? Micropigmentation may be a viable solution. It’s not going to provide a perfect world, but it can help enhance certain features.

What Should I Expect After the Procedure?

You will be sent home the same day. You should expect swelling in the treated region. The pigmentation typically will appear darker in the weeks following the procedure, but will fade over time.
