Long term benefits of Microblading

"For some women, applying makeup is a highlight of their day. It’s a chance to conceal imperfections and change their look with products and a few simple strokes of a brush. For others, however, it’s a dreaded event, and for some, it can be a difficult or even impossible task. For these clients, there is a solution: permanent makeup. Also known as permanent cosmetics, permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing that involves a technique that deposits colored pigment into the skin. Permanent cosmetic procedures include eyeliner, eyebrows, lip liner, and lash enhancement.

While some clients opt for permanent makeup to achieve a softer and more natural enhancement to their appearance, it is also popular among clients who have allergies or skin sensitivities to traditional cosmetics. Fitness enthusiasts and active clients appreciate that they can always look good without worrying about smearing makeup when sweating and having to reapply after working out. It can even be an option for those who have a hard time applying makeup due to a condition like a stroke or arthritis. Permanent cosmetics is another way to enhance their beauty.

Unlike tattooing, the depth of the needle, type of device, and the techniques used in permanent makeup are designed for the face instead of the body. Permanent makeup differs from traditional tattoos because tattooing is pigmented into the hypodermis, the third layer of the skin, which gives tattoos their permanence on the skin. With permanent makeup, the dermal, or second, a layer of the skin is usually pigmented and therefore offers a degree of permanence. Because the epidermis does shed over time, the result can last anywhere from one to 5 years, depending on the client’s lifestyle, the color used, and topical products applied on the skin post-procedure.

Permanent makeup can be applied using various devices, including manual tools or electronically powered devices.

While permanent makeup procedures are generally safe for most clients, there are some risks involved, as with any tattooing service, because the procedure involves a needle, and the service draws blood. Unsanitary conditions, such as lack of surgical gloves or improperly sterilized equipment, can cause infections.

All new clients should meet with the permanent makeup artist prior to the service for a consultation, just as they would for any cosmetic surgery procedure. During the consultation, the technician answers any questions a client might have, explains how the procedure works and determines what the client hopes to achieve. In the case of eyebrows, the permanent makeup artist always draws the shape so the client sees how it will look and the color is chosen. Also, permanent makeup artist explains in detail information on home care and what can be expected in the days and weeks following the procedure. The area after pigmentation will be darker for a few days to a week. To provide the best results, clients should keep the area moisturized to retain the most color.

With the proper devices and highly skilled technicians, permanent makeup offers an array of benefits that range from shortening the time spent applying cosmetics each day to helping clients feel comfortable and beautiful in their skin. Permanent makeup provides relief from applying makeup throughout the day, saving time and money in the long run. Permanent makeup can recreate the look of eyebrows for clients with hair loss from cancer, alopecia, and over-plucking and helps clients improve their self-confidence in their appearance. "
