The history of permanent makeup
What is permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup is also known by several other terms, such as micro pigmentation, derma-pigmentation, permanent cosmetics and cosmetic tattooing. The last name is perhaps the most appropriate, because, in the simplest of terms, permanent makeup is a technique which is entirely cosmetic and uses a modified version of tattooing. Tattoos are a method by which the dermis is pigmented, and the results are permanent. This tattooing method is used to enhance the appearance of the face, in particular, the lips, eyebrows, and eyelids.
This method can be used to create eyebrows, particularly for people who might have lost them due to trauma, age, chemo-therapy or alopecia totalis. The same method can also be used to cover scars or cuts that might have appeared in the existing eyebrows. For those who have suffered from vitiligo, (a disease where the pigment cells of the skin are destroyed in certain areas and white patches have become very evident), the option of permanent pigmentation through tattooing is extremely welcome. Vitilgo can appear anywhere on the body, but hands and face creates the most anxiety where persons consider treatment, and another related procedure might be the redefinition of the areola for women.
Shear Convenience Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup, medicinally known as micropigmentation, is the exact position of shading into the skin. Through little needles, varying shades of iron oxide colors are set into the more profound bit of the skin, known as the dermis. The exact situation of needle sticks makes many passages into the skin, in turn creating and conveying the shaded colors alongside each needle stick.
Two types of permanent makeup results include: immediate and long-term.
The immediate results:
Immediate result is a redefinition of the face, actually making the face look better. The definition can be provided to the lips, eyes, and eyebrows with the use of client preferred cosmetic colors. The results will be such that the look will appear as if a normal makeup has been applied. In most cases the results will appear very natural and is dependent on how experienced the technician performing the procedure is; the amount of pigment or color being used is also a factor. Talk thoroughly with your technician and understand the procedure and feel comfortable with the artist’s experience before proceeding. Initially, upon completion, the makeup might look very dark, but as the colour begins to settle in, the colours will soften and become subtle so as to appear natural. This darkness can be attributed to the presence of colour in the epidermis. As new epidermal cells appear, the colour will soften, and the look will even out naturally.
The long-term results:
If magnificent colors have been used for the procedure, the effects should last a fairly long time, but over many years, colours will inevitably fade and the work will be less effective. This is not really a problem because follow up sessions will usually brighten up the work and bring a new freshness to your permanent makeup. Environmental factors cannot be avoided such as the sun, dirt, pollution and even exposure to rain could influence the longevity of the procedure. Aside from causing a dulling effect, slight variances in colour can begin to show but can also be balanced out with a minor procedure. A person’s skin tone can also play an important role in how long the composition will continue to look natural, and not faded.
In spite of some minor set-backs in permanent makeup, most individuals who undertake the program know that the advantages outweigh the inconvenience. They know that this procedure can be of great help. Once the permanent makeup has been applied, the need to go through the baffling hour of applying one’s makeup has been greatly reduced. This application is for anyone, but in particular, for those who suffer from arthritis or permanent limb injury can appreciate the benefits.
In addition, the permanent makeup can help you appear younger. This doesn't necessarily mean a a ninety year-old woman would appear thirty, but imagine five to ten years younger if properly designed and placed. Because it’s tattooed on to your skin, it is a permanent, enhancement that in all likelihood, need not be done again except as mentioned above. No need to reapply makeup when one is out for an evening, most women are constantly worried if their appearance has changed throughout an event.
For some ladies, the choice of permanent makeup option is related to their care or diminished care in applying all of the time. Skin issues and facial scars, thinning lips, and hair loss that regular makeup struggles to cover can be a deciding factor in permanent makeup. The process can help with self-consciousness; in fact it can help one to feel very good about themselves; beautiful and ready to take on the world.
