Micropigmentation, or permanent make up, is an innovative cosmetic procedure that enables both men and women to enhance the shape of their eyebrows, hairline, lips, eyes, and more, through the process of depositing pigment into the skin’s dermal layer.Applying some cosmetics can be bothersome, especially if you have a physical condition that makes it difficult (cataracts, severe arthritis, etc.) There’s help. In a procedure known as Micropigmentation, a trained doctor or specialist can inject iron oxide pigment into the middle layer of your skin (dermis) for results that last longer than the eyeliner you have in your bathroom drawer. Micropigmentation has many names, including dermagraphics or permanent make-up.

This smudge-free treatment lasts for years and is a great way to restore confidence and self-esteem in those with alopecia, hair loss, chemotherapy patients, and more.

How is Micropigmentation (Permanent Make-Up) Performed?

Permanent make-up is performed by inserting a small, thin needle and hypoallergenic mineral pigment into the second layer of the skin to lightly contour and enhance the lips, eyes, or eyebrows, and more. Your doctor will wear gloves during the procedure in order to prevent the spread of germs and other issues.

This procedure differs from cosmetic tattoos in that it uses a different pigment than tattoo ink, and it also less invasive. The instrument used is also slightly less advanced than tattoo devices.

The procedure itself takes approximately twenty minutes to a half hour and is typically performed in an office setting, which means you will return home the same day. Though, Micropigmentation is usually a minimally painful procedure, depending on the area treated, some patients may receive anesthesia prior to treatment in order to make it more comfortable.

Who is a candidate for micropigmentation?

Certainly, people 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 an uneven hairline, or allergies to make-up that create a problem? Micropigmentation may be a viable solution and can help enhance certain features.
