Permanent makeup (PMU) including micro-blading is also known as cosmetic tattooing or cosmetic pigmentation of the brows, eyeliner and lips.
These micro pigmentation techniques assure a time saving solution for clients on the go. They also supply an ease of application for those who do not like to apply makeup.
Permanent Makeup is recommended for clients who wear pencil or liquid eyeliner daily and would like to save time on applying it. One of the greatest advantages of permanent eyeliner is that it will never run and always have a beautiful shape that is professionally drawn. Permanent eyeliner can be applied on either lower or upper line or both.
Topical anesthetics are applied before and during the procedure and reduce the discomfort greatly. Keep in mind, that colours appear brighter, darker and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As the healing progresses, colour will fade and soften (40-60%).
This takes about 2 - 4 weeks. Every skin is different and will therefor fade differently. Factors such as skin tone, age, medication, sun etc may all have an effect on the end result.
Clients do require a touch-up treatment after 6-8 weeks to penetrate and lock the colour into the skin. PMU is permanent but it does fade with the years. Some clients need another treatment in a year, some clients after 3 or 5 years.
This will also differ from person to person depending on what your skin does with the colour, how it heals, after care and exposure to sun.
