Micropigmentation has been growing in popularity in recent years. Instead of wasting time to “putting on your face” each day, permanent makeup techniques let you look your best anytime of the day or night, regardless where you are or what you’re doing.
What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic procedure that uses tattooing techniques to embed pigment under the skin to give the look of permanent perfectly applied makeup to the eyes, brows, or lips. The procedures are performed by a technician or doctor especially trained in performing these cosmetic treatments. There are several permanent tattoo makeup procedures you can choose from.
What is Microblading?
Microblading, or brow tattooing is the most popular permanent cosmetic procedure. It is called Microblading because small blades or a fine rotary pen are used to cut tiny incisions into the brow line so pigment can be directly applied under the skin. Once finished, your permanent eyebrows will look fuller and shapelier. The permanent eyebrows are made using small strokes to look like real hairs so your permanent brows will look like real eyebrows. The technique is also called micro-shading or brow feathering
After each micropigmentation treatment, you should refrain from wearing makeup or exposing the area to direct sunlight for the first 24 hours. Also, keep the area clean and monitor for signs of infection.
Microblading ranges in cost between $500 to $3,000 depending the size of the area being treated.
If you are always worrying that your lipstick will wear off or smudge, Lip Blushing easily solves that problem. Also called lip tinting, the technician uses a fine tipped rotary pen to inject a subtle permanent lipstick colouring into your lips.
The cost of getting permanent lipstick can range between $700 to $3,000
Permanent eyeliner is a tattoo that is done just above or along the lash line on the eyelid. Lines tattooed above the lash line like traditional eyeliner applications help your eyes look bigger and more distinctive while a permanent line applied within the eyelashes makes your eyelashes look fuller. A European acupuncture technique is used to embed the tattoo ink into your upper eyelid.
Eyeliner tattoos cost between $400 to $1,500.
Scar camouflage tattoos use skin tone coloured pigments to conceal scars. The micropigmentation procedure is most commonly used to cover mastectomy scars however, it can also be used to cover other types of scars including acne scars and stretch marks.
The cost of scar camouflage tattoos ranges between $2,500 to $4,500.
