How Does Permanent Makeup Work?

Permanent makeup is a great way to save time in the morning and still look great all day long. The procedure is similar to getting a tattoo. For permanent makeup, the process is called micro-pigmentation. There are several types of makeup that you can have done permanently.

What is It?

Permanent makeup is also sometimes referred to as micro-pigmentation, derma-pigmentation, or cosmetic tattooing. Since the process is similar to a tattoo, the United States regulates the inks and conditions under which they are applied just like with a tattoo salon.

There are different types of permanent makeup available to you. They include:

  • Lipstick
  • Eyeliner
  • Eyeshadow
  • Scar camouflage

How Does It Work?

A special tool is used to inject the chosen color of ink directly into the skin. When you decide to have this form of makeup applied, the first step is always to have a consultation done. The session (or sessions) to apply the makeup can run anywhere from minutes to hours, depending on what you are having done.

Who Can Benefit?

Anyone who would like to save time during their morning routine can greatly benefit from having permanent makeup applied. It is also very useful for those who have impaired motor or other physical skills. This is particularly true of arthritis and Parkinson’s disease, where applying makeup can be painful or difficult. Permanent makeup can also be a solution for those who suffer from allergies to normal makeup.
