Permanent Makeup

Permanent Makeup - Maquillage Permanent
Micro-Pigmentation, also known as permanent makeup, is a procedure applying pigment into the dermal layer of skin. This state of the art procedure has been performed for a variety of makeup enhancements for hundreds of years. Cosmetic tattooing can offer subtle enhancements to lip liner & lip color, upper and lower eyeliners and eyebrows.

In more recent years, permanent color techniques are being widely performed for camouflage therapy such as creating pigmentation for areola and nipple restoration, vitiligo, hypopigmentation and hairline scars.

Aside from the obvious esthetic enhancements and definition, cosmetic tattooing has many ot her benefits. The Visually impaired, handicapped and those who have alopecia benefit tremendously from this service.

EYEBROWS

If you use a pencil to define your eyebrows, permanent make-up would certainly rid you of that burden. Keep your eyebrows on during swimming, aerobic classes and while you sleep. An eyebrow procedure may take on the appearance of simulated hair strokes of color beneath existing light and sparse hairs.

EYELINER

An eyeliner procedure defines the lash line and enhances your eye shape. Thickness and color may vary according to a client’s request. Pigment is implanted close to the lash line to ensure a natural line.

LIP LINER & LIPCOLOR

A lip liner not only defines the existing lip line, but may also augment the size. It can also camouflage any scars and other anomalies such as cleft lip. Lip augmentation appears to increase the size and fullness of the natural lip line. People who lose natural lip color through the aging process benefit dramatically from this procedure. A very popular enhancement and a beautiful one at that.

Permanent makeup such as eyeliner, eyebrow and lip Liners are natural lines of definition.

CAMOUFLAGE & SCARS

Other areas of benefit are corrective cosmetic tattooing and camouflaging. These areas include areola and nipples, vitiligo, scars resulting from burns and plastic surgery hair line face lift scars.
