More Permanent Makeup Information:
Semi-permanent make-up has been around since the times of Cleopatra in the Egyptians.
But as time as moved on, this procedure has become more readily available to everyday people like you and me although it has become more popular due to the big celebrities out there having it done and looking flawless.
But what exactly is this procedure and what can you have done to create long lasting and flawless make up looks for yourself?
Well, semi-permanent make-up is exactly what it says.
It’s make-up that is semi-permanent but can last up to five years meaning that your look will be there for a lot longer than your normal make-up does for just a day.
The process takes a few hours and it is basically a bit like having a tattoo whereby pigmentation is injected just under the dermal layer of the skin.
It is a safe procedure to have done and an allergy test is always carried out first to ensure that you do not have any allergic reaction to it.
It does not involve any chemicals so it is a good procedure for those of you that have sensitive skin.
Anesthetic is used before, during and after the procedure so that you are as comfortable as possible and most people describe the feeling as more of a tingling than a pain as such.
There will be a slight redness and maybe some swelling immediately after your treatment but this will go down over the next few days and leave you with make-up that is flawless and that you don’t have to keep reapplying every day.
More Permanent Makeup FAQ’s:
Have any questions about semi-permanent makeup? Many women new to the treatment do, so here are our answers to those commonly asked questions:
Q. What is Semi-Permanent Makeup?
Semi-permanent makeup isn’t really makeup, but pigments that are inserted beneath the skin using a fine needle. These procedures are performed using a similar method to that used in tattooing to enhance specific features of your face and lessen a person’s need for application and reapplication of cosmetics. Some refer to these treatments as micropigmentation due to their small scale use of pigments and the delicate nature with which they are applied.
Q. Why are these treatments considered to be semi-permanent?
Semi-permanent makeup is only labelled as such because of its tendency to fade over time. This is true with tattooing as well due to some pigment working its way up to the outermost layer of skin. The makeup is still very visible, but in order to have the colours stay as true and vivid as possible, it is recommended that semi-permanent makeup be touched up every nine to eighteen months by a fully trained and certified professional.
Q. What kinds of treatments are available?
Semi-permanent makeup treatments can be done on eyebrows, the lip line, and the lash line in order to provide you with permanent eyeliner, darker and more well-defined brows, and lip liner that helps to enhance the shape of your lips. There are also other procedures in this category that address beauty marks and scarring.
Why Semi-Permanent Makeup Is Better
Q. Why is semi-permanent makeup becoming so popular?
Semi-permanent makeup is popular due to its longevity. It is also preferable to temporary cosmetics because it saves people time, energy, and money that would normally be spent on applying everyday cosmetics. Semi-permanent makeup also gives its wearers a consistently superior look that can be difficult to replicate on a daily basis if the wearer lacks the technique to line eyes and shape brows or lips on their own.
Q. How can semi-permanent makeup help those with medical conditions?
These beauty treatments are extremely helpful for those who have lost their eyebrows and lashes due to chemotherapy, alopecia, or trichotillomania. Semi-permanent makeup can help to provide people suffering from these conditions with a sense of self amidst the chaos of dealing with illness and medical care. It is especially helpful in boosting these clients’ self-esteem and giving them back control over their appearance that may have been believed to be lost through cancer treatment or accelerated hair loss.
Q. Does semi-permanent makeup have a natural look?
Although it is a cosmetic enhancement that uses the same techniques as a typical tattoo artist, the application is done very delicately with a much smaller needle. This makes it possible to give clients a more natural look that isn’t obvious or overdone. Clients are always given the opportunity to assess the colour and style of eyebrow, eyeliner, and lip line to ensure that the colours and shaping of each line is just right before the procedure is performed. The first few weeks after treatment, it may show bolder lines, but these should fade a little during this time, so everything should fall into place quite quickly when attaining a natural look.
Q. Are there any other reasons why someone would feel the need to choose semi-permanent makeup?
Semi-permanent makeup isn’t just for celebrities or people who need to cover up hair loss or give their confidence a boost during cancer treatment. It’s also suitable for people who lack the knowledge to apply cosmetics correctly and in a timely fashion. These beauty treatments are also excellent for people suffering from conditions that prevent them from having hands steady enough to apply makeup or grasp brow pencils and liners in their hands due to arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, or increasing age. Semi-permanent makeup is also very useful for people who have patchy eyebrows from over plucking or lighter brows than is desirable. Maturing women are another group of perfect candidates for lip and eyeliner applications due to definition in these areas being lost over time as skin matures.
Finding The Right Technician
Q. Where can I find a professional trained to apply semi-permanent makeup?
There are plenty of places offering semi-permanent makeup applications all over the UK. A good start would be to consult our directory of local technicians. It is then advisable to phone around, look up any reviews on technicians, and find out what the average cost of having your treatment applied would be.
Q. How can you tell if someone is capable of performing procedures that use semi-permanent makeup?
Technicians should be licensed and accredited with the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology or Confederation of International Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology as Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professionals. Getting semi-permanent makeup is just as serious as getting tattoos; you want to make sure the salon is up to health and safety standards before receiving treatment.
