What is Permanent Cosmetics?
Makeup, also referred to as Micro-pigmentation or
Cosmetic Tattooing, Is a procedure of applying micro
insertions of pigment onto the dermal layer of the
skin. For centuries, men and women have been utilizing
this practice to enhance or correct their skin color.
The most common applications involve the eyebrows,
lips, and eyeliner. The procedure is also used for
correction of scars, cleft lips, areola restoration,
and vitiligo. Man women who have had this procedure
find they wear much less makeup than before, while
others continue to apply regular makeup for the
more finished look and enjoy the color the permanent
cosmetics add to their facial features, especially
when no makeup is applied at all.
