What Is Micropigmentation (permanent makeup)?

Micropigmentation, aka permanent makeup, is a cosmetic procedure that can help you improve the shape of your eyes, lips, hairline, and eyebrows. In this procedure, the artist deposits pigment into the dermal layer of your skin. Let’s find out more. 

This treatment is smudge-free and lasts for years. Therefore, it helps boost your self-esteem and confidence, especially if you have hair loss or alopecia due to chemotherapy. 

How is Permanent MakeUp Performed?

This treatment is done by inserting the pigment using a thin needle into the dermal layer of your skin. Usually, the procedure takes between 20 and 30 minutes. So, you can get back home the same day. Although the procedure is minimally painful, some patients may get anesthesia to feel comfortable. 

What to Expect After the Procedure

After the treatment, you may experience minor inflammation around the treatment area. Your doctor may ask you to apply ice to reduce the swelling. Besides, you may experience tearing, which is nothing to worry about. 

Your doctor may ask you to use antiseptic to clean the area after the procedure. It’s better to avoid sunlight and products that may contain peroxide. 

In rare cases, patients may develop a rash or fever after the procedure, but it goes away in a day or two. But we suggest that you contact your doctor should you experience these symptoms.
