ABOUT PERMANENT MAKEUP
Permanent makeup is possible through a procedure called micro-pigmentation, 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. In addition to defining the eyes, micro-pigmentation is used to enhance eyebrows and lips and can permanently create the look of blush and eye-shadow.
HOW ARE PERMANENT COSMETIC PROCEDURES PERFORMED
Permanent cosmetic procedures are performed using various devices, including the traditional pen, rotary machine, non-machine, or hand device. The procedure includes a consultation, the application of pigment, and at least one or more follow up visits for evaluating the healed design work and color of the pigment.

ARE PERMANENT COSMETICS REALLY PERMANENT?
Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or colorant (pigment) in general, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance referred to as color re-enhancement or color refreshing. The scientific structure of pigments and the requirement for periodic refreshing is identical to that of tinted hair color; faded material on furniture that may be located near a window and subject to sun exposure; house paint that is exposed to the sun and other environmental elements; pigment implanted in the skin may fade with time. This colorant periodic maintenance requirement is a good opportunity to reevaluate ones colorant design preferences.
