Permanent makeup (also known as Micro Pigmentation) consists of implanting natural pigments under the superficial layers of the skin by means of a small, sterile micro-needle, to create lasting cosmetic definition of the lips, eyes, and eyebrows. Micro Pigmentation can also be used correctively, in areas where hair or colour is missing.
If you are allergic to traditional makeup, are physically active, have sparse, thin or faintly coloured eyebrows and lashes or have a problem with applying or smearing of traditional makeup. Permanent makeup may also be used to camouflage scars and correct skin discolorations such as vitiligo. Individuals with alopecia (abnormal hair loss) and recovering cancer patients can benefit from cosmetic or reconstructive tattooing.
This may vary according to each individual’s pain threshold. Topical anaesthetics, especially designed for permanent make up are applied before and during the procedure and reduce the discomfort greatly.

Permanent makeup fades more rapidly on the face than on the body as it is permanently exposed to daylight. Ideally, the color should be touched-up every one-two years depending on how well the pigment holds. The fading process varies from individual to individual according to body chemistry and lifestyle. With some people, permanent makeup fades after a year while with others there is no change after ten years. Usually light color fades faster than a dark color. Post procedure touch-up is highly recommended, because it helps the ability to retain the color.
For between four to six hours, the area treated will be slightly reddened and a bit swollen. The eyelids can remain puffy for 24 to 48 hours in about fifty percent of cases. Immediate use of ice gel packs will greatly reduce and sometimes eliminate swelling. The lips stay swollen for about three days. The eyebrows have minimal swelling. For approximately 5-7days, the permanent makeup appears somewhat obvious, dark, and intense. By day seven, the top layer of the skin will flake and peel, leaving the color softer. Do not alarm by fading after the first application. The second appointment is to penetrate and lock the color into the dermal layer of the skin.
