Micropigmentation, also known as semi-permanent makeup, enhances facial features such as eyebrows, lashes, and lips, and improves conditions like scarring and uneven pigmentation. Correct all those years of over plucking and take hours off your daily regime with a set of beautifully symmetrical eyebrows that will instantly enhance all your facial features.
People typically choose micropigmentation either because they have physical limitations that make applying makeup difficult on a regular basis, or simply as a way to save time. People with alopecia, a form of hair loss, may choose micropigmentation to create an appearance of eyebrows where the hair has been lost.

The Micropigmentation Procedure
Since the surface layer of the skin (epidermis) continually undergoes a natural exfoliation process, the colour is tattooed on both the surface skin layer and the skin layer below (dermis layer). A topical aesthetic is applied before and after treatment to reduce discomfort. Tiny, metabolically inert pigment granules are implanted below the epidermis.
You can discuss the lightness and darkness options with the practitioner. Typically, patients use a lighter colour and return for additional treatment to darken the colour if needed.
After the procedure, cool ice packs can be applied to reduce discomfort. Sun protection is important after treatment. If you have a history of cold sores, your doctor can prescribe medication to prevent a reaction.
