Should I Consider Permanent Makeup?

Should I Consider Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is a type of cosmetic tattoo that creates a flawless, semi-permanent look. Many people are opting for permanent makeup for a variety of reasons:

  • Poor eyesight/unsteady hands
  • Unable to find makeup that lasts
  • Little to no time to put on makeup
  • Medical reasons

Many millennials are choosing permanent makeup to save themselves time when getting ready for the day or settling in for the night. Permanent makeup is perfectly flawless when you wake up and you don’t have to worry about washing it off at night.

Flying Horse Medical Center offers a variety of aesthetic services including permanent makeup. In this article, we’ll explore a few things to consider when deciding if you should get this cosmetic procedure.

How Does it Work?

Permanent makeup, also referred to as micro-pigmentation, is done with a pen containing iron oxide, which tattoos the skin, creating the appearance of makeup. It can be used for a variety of things including:

  • Creating the appearance of lipstick or eyeliner
  • Creating darker, thicker eyebrows
  • Camouflage scars
  • Create an even hairline

Who May Want Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is a great option for busy professionals who don’t have time to apply a full face of makeup every day. In addition, patients with medical conditions including Parkinson’s diseasemultiple sclerosis, cataracts, arthritis, or have suffered a stroke may be interested in this procedure. Finally, with so many allergies, many people can’t wear traditional makeup. Permanent makeup is a viable alternative.

What are the Risks Associated with Permanent Makeup?

Overall, permanent makeup is safe, and recovery usually only takes about 3 to 5 days.

The primary risks are allergic reaction and infection. However, you can mitigate these risks by verifying that you do not have an allergy to any of the products being used. Also, make sure that you use a professional that you can trust such as the aestheticians at Flying Horse Medical Center.

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost varies based on the complexity of the work and the experience/expertise of the practitioner you are working with. Since it is a cosmetic procedure, most insurance providers will not cover it.

How to Find a Practitioner

Permanent makeup is a great option for busy professionals who don’t have time to put on a full face of makeup every day or who are allergic to traditional cosmetics.

If you are interested in permanent makeup, you’ll want to find someone who understands how it works and is familiar with the process. You’ll want to ask a few questions including:

  • How long have you been doing this procedure?
  • Can I view your credentials?
  • Can I see photos of your previous clients?

In addition, you’ll want to make sure that you know your skin type. The aestheticians at Flying Horse Medical Center offer permanent tattoos along with a variety of additional services.

What is Permanent Makeup?

What is Permanent Makeup?

Vania Silva

Do you ever wake up in the morning with a full face of makeup on, or what’s left of it, and dread the process of taking it off just to put it back on? We all have those little beauty routines that no matter what, before you leave the house, you just HAVE to do. But what if you didn’t have to do it? What if you could wake up with makeup?

Now you can. With the growing number of beauty techniques, permanent makeup is the new cosmetic trend that will lighten up your morning routine for years!

Permanent Makeup

Also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, Permanent Makeup is a technique which involves permanent pigmentation of the dermis. It’s achieved by inserting colored, natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. It produces articulate designs that resemble makeup.

Permanent Makeup offered at Flying Horse Medical Center:

  • Eyebrows (power, microblading, combination)
  • Beauty marks (freckles)
  • Eyeliner (upper, lower, combination)
  • Lip Blush
  • Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation

Permanent Makeup can reach beyond cosmetic purposes. Flying Horse Medical Center also offers Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP).  This process may be useful for people who experience all forms of hair loss. This includes clients with:

  • Cancer
  • Alopecia
  • Thinning hair
  • Male and female pattern baldness

This procedure creates the illusion of fuller hair. The goal of SMP isn’t to create hairlike lines as you would when microblading eyebrows, but instead to use tiny, layered dots in different hues of black to replicate the look of a shadow on your scalp. This style, referred to as pointillism, is done to create natural-looking depth and definition.
