Eyebrows - Light shades of color can be implanted with a "hairline stroke" technique to achieve a very natural appearance. Intradermal Pigmentation procedure can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows, especially those who use a pencil will love the procedure, saving them up to thirty minutes everyday, enabling them to go swimming, play tennis or wipe their forehead without the embarrassment of no eyebrows. Alopecia sufferers are pleasantly surprised at how natural it looks.
Eyeliner - Eyeliner can be applied as a definite line or a subtle shadow in the lashes. Implantation of pigments in the lash line produces a subtle, natural look, mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes, which is popular with both men and women. Additional shadowing of color can create a soft "smudged" look or a more bold definite line that can be created as well. Ophthalmologists recommend Intradermal Cosmetic procedures for those who are allergic to conventional makeup and for those wearing contact lenses.
Lip Liner & Lip Color -The Intradermal Pigmentation procedure for lip liner can appear as if to change the size and shape of the lips as well as the color of the lips. This procedure helps to prevent lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin and camouglages facial lines surrounding the lips as a result of aging. A soft pinkish/red, similar to the lip color of a newborn baby, is popular for those wanting a natural look, while a more dramatic color can also be achieved.
Permanent Cosmetic Makeup
Skin art has been discovered on the skin of Egyptian mummies dating back to 2000 B. C. Tools of the trade were soot, gunpowder, sharpened stones, and other primitive implements. Dermal pigmentation, commonly known as tattooing, has been present for centuries in our cultures for the purpose of body adornment. The implanting of pigments, colors, and/or dyes intradermally results in permanent alteration of tissue to gain a cosmetic effect.
One of the newest additions to the cosmetics world is "permanent makeup," also referred to as dermapigmentation, or micropigmentation. This technique benefits women with poor vision, arthritis, problems with dexterity, allergies to makeup, watery eyes, or problems with contact lenses or oily skin that causes makeup to smear. Also, convenience might be a consideration for an athletic woman who wants to look good during sports or exercise. Some women simply don't like to be seen without makeup.
One of the most beneficial uses for permanent eye makeup is to recreate the illusion of lost lashes and brows due to hair loss induced by chemotherapy, or a condition that causes total hair loss known as alopecia areata. More and more men and women are becoming aware of how the advantages of "natural looking" permanent cosmetic makeup can enhance and accent features of their appearance. It won't wash off, smudge or smear and will always look professionally applied.
Permanent makeup is also used to line and fill in the lips. It can correct irregularly shaped lips, as well as make the lips look fuller. Because of its permanence, many women find it convenient to only apply a lip gloss instead of lip color all the time. It can transform mornings and evenings, of time consuming effort, into minutes; and your look is always great. Now you can have eyeliner, eyebrows, lip liner, or a full color mouth twenty-four hours a day.
There is an expanding field of permanent cosmetics called corrective camouflage. Loss of pigmentation in the skin, either through accidents, birthmarks, vitiligo or a multitude of other skin irregularities and disorders, are problems which may be corrected through pigmentation. Postsurgical scars, if noticeable, can be camouflaged by pigmenting the lighter colored areas of the scar to match the surrounding skin. Many burn survivors can have scar tissue pigmented to create asymmetry to the contour of the lips and eyebrows. The main objective when using corrective cosmetics is to play down the abnormality and draw attention to other areas.
Permanent cosmetic makeup procedures (compared to expenses like hair, nails and cosmetics) are a relatively inexpensive way to improve one's appearance on a permanent basis. Most people absolutely love the end result. It can be a very freeing experience, and change or highlight features. There's beauty in everyone and there's always the possibility that there is something that can be improved.
