PM is a gentle process of implanting pigment into the upper layer of the skin.  PM procedure is performed around eyes, eyebrows and lips, for camouflaging scars, burns, Vitiligo, as well as correcting some facial irregularities. Permanent Makeup (PM) is also known as dermapigmentation, micropigmentation, or cosmetic tattooing, and is an alternative to removable, daily applied cosmetics.  The most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is saving time. 

What is Permanent makeup?

Is it painful to get permanent make up?
 

Because PMU is most often performed on areas of the body that are sensitive, the use of anesthetic agent is not uncommon. The sensation of every person is different. One topical anesthetics is a combination of betacain, lidocaine, tetracain.  Other topicals include epinephrine, which is vasoconstrictive and helps to minimize swelling. These products are effective, quick acting, and have various blends designed for use before a procedure or application, after the skin has broken.  The multiple-application technique works well to make the client comfortable and allows the technician to complete the procedure effectively. 

How will it look?

Immediately after the procedure, some swelling may occur, and the color will appear a bit darker than the healed and final result.  During the procedure, the color of the pigment is mixed with body fluids and is oxidized. The color stays dark for 4-7 days during the healing process, as the upper layers of epidermis are shed and replaced by new epidermal cells.  After the healing process you will be able to see a lighter softer color of the pigment.  The final color will appear in about 4 weeks after the procedure, and is usually about 20-30% lighter than the color after procedure

How long does the procedure take?

.The most important part of the first procedure is drawing and creating a shape of eyebrows, eyeliners or lips, which could take about 15 45 minutes. The procedure itself  takes about  1 hour, So the total time is about 2 hours. The  duration of a touch-up procedure 1 hour.

Is a perfecting visit really needed?

During the healing process, the skin is working on the reparing itself.  The lymphatic system is trying to push out all external particles to prevent contamination.  That explains why the color implanted the first time is not perfect after healing.  Also the first time appointment and procedure is like a sketch. All skin is different and can respond differently by healing and keeping the pigments.  At the perfecting visit, I review me work and add the finishing corrective touches for color and shape. Prices include one perfecting visit (touch up).  However the client should always remember that permanent makeup is almost always a two or more step process.
