It irks me in movies and TV shows when actresses wake up looking beautiful and made up after a long night’s sleep. Who goes to bed with makeup on their face? Growing up, my mom taught me the importance of washing your face before bedtime and never going to bed with a full face of makeup.
Thanks to something called micropigmentation or permanent makeup, those staged scenes from TV and movies can be a reality. Permanent makeup is simply this – a form of tattooing that uses specially formulated pigments for the face to create a long lasting makeup look for eyebrows, eyeliner and lip color. Imagine a world where your makeup doesn’t smudge, smear or rub off.
The experience can be likened to electrolysis or tweezing. A topical anesthetic is used for the patient’s comfort. Despite the word “tattooing”, permanent makeup causes little trauma to your skin, with the exception of lips that may experience swelling. Often, patients can return to work in the same day.
The perfect eyebrows, eyeliner and lip color lasts 1 to 5 years, depending on the depth of the pigment, skin type and proper post care. To learn more about permanent makeup and how it could work for you, contact the licensed medical estheticians at Lebo Skin Care Center for a free consultation.
