If waking up with your eyebrows done and defined and your lips plush, perky and perfectly made up sounds good to you, permanent makeup is probably worth your while.
This simple and stunning procedure goes by numerous names, including facial tattooing and micropigmentation. They refer to a set of techniques involving the artistic application of organic pigments beneath your skin’s surface to give you that permanently made-up, beautiful glam and glow.
If you find yourself spending too much time in front of a makeup mirror daily, permanent makeup is an ideal means of achieving naturale cosmetic enhancements that last for years to come. Once you’ve got permanent make-=up, you don’t need to worry about getting new cosmetics or the re-application of makeup. You’ll have a permanent glow-up.
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique wherein organic pigmentation is applied to the skin’s dermis layer to produce results and designs resembling actual makeup. Depending on your cosmetic goals, Dr. Gill will use a variety of techniques to shape, fill in and define the eyebrows, apply a permanent eyeliner, give your lips a natural blush, and more. The results can be as dramatic or natural as you want them to be.
Local anesthesia is administered to make the permanent makeup process virtually pain-free and very comfortable. Your skin will be numb, and you’ll feel minimal discomfort at most.
The entire permanent makeup process concludes in just two visits, scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gill will discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations and together, you’ll come up with a treatment plan that gives you the ideal naturale makeup, according to your unique aesthetic goals.
Next, your skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic before the application of the organic pigments. Dr. Gill will work on the eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip pigmentation—with the total duration of the procedure depending on your specific goals.
At the end of your first visit, you walk out with your desired eyebrows, eyeliner or lip pigmentation. Six to eight weeks later, you will return for a touchup visit to enhance any area that can benefit from a final polish and finesse.
The specific longevity of permanent makeup depends on several factors and varies from one individual to another. Applied correctly, the best results can last for several years, but they’ll eventually start fading away. In most cases, the permanent makeup results start fading away in from 1 to 3 years.
The longevity of the results depends on several factors, including your body’s metabolic rate and external environmental factors. Unfortunately, you can’t necessarily control how fast your body metabolizes the pigment, but you can limit your exposure to the sun and wear adequate sunscreen to enhance the treatment longevity. You can also consider maintenance treatments to extend the results.
In the hands of a skilled artist, the procedure is perfectly safe. The risk of an allergic reaction to the organic pigment is negligible.
