Permanent cosmetic makeup is a procedure that uses a special tattooing technique to improve the appearance and shape of your eyebrows. It gives you thicker, more uniform eyebrows, and hair strokes of the same color as your natural hair. Since you can't change your brows with cosmetics or do-it-yourself procedures, permanent makeup is a great choice for people who have problems with eyebrows due to overplucking, or who have sparse brows or brows that are slightly off-color from the hair on their head.
Permanent eyebrow makeup services are beneficial for both women and men. For some, it is a matter of convenience, while for many it is a necessity - due to very thin or complete loss of eyebrows. Regardless of the reason, the client should know a few important facts about permanent eyebrows before making an appointment for this permanent facial alteration.
The difference between permanent makeup and microblading is both simple and complex. Permanent makeup is a process that uses needles to embed pigment into the dermis, which is deeper into the skin than microblading. Permanent makeup is not necessarily thicker, but the ink itself can be, and that clearly can make a difference. Permanent makeup is permanent, which means that, unlike microblading, the pigment will not fade over time. Permanent makeup is a serious commitment, and should only be undertaken with a skilled practitioner who can address all of your concerns.
Permanent makeup is a popular choice for those seeking to enhance their looks. When done correctly, it can look completely natural and can last for years. However, there are many in the beauty industry who are trying to capitalize on the popularity of permanent makeup by giving it new names and calling it something else. In recent years, microblading has become a popular trend of cosmetic tattooing. Microblading is NOT permanent makeup. It is a completely different procedure.
After researching your artist it is imperative to educate yourself on the different types of pigments. Semi-permanent and permanent pigments are "permanent", but probably not as you would expect them to be. Both types of pigments fade away over time. Depending on the pigment, an undesirable color may emerge, pink or green, leaving you disappointed and in need of a corrective or touch up procedure.
Although a corrective procedure will fix the immediate issue, there will be long lasting effects. The second application will last for a couple of years and then the fading will again occur. This cycle will continue until the undesirable tint is no longer able to be corrected or covered. There is a risk that even laser permanent makeup removal will not be able to remove that tint and bring you a successful result or the natural brow you desire.
Another aspect of this procedure to be aware of is the possibility of scarring. Anytime you have tattooing done; you are scarring tissue. If this is done too many times, your skin will no longer accept pigment in a way that will look natural or like the original time it was done.
While you are continuing to research and educate yourself about the procedure, process, and artist it is important for you to know that not all artists want the best option for you. Many artists view return customers needing corrective treatments or touch up treatments as a way to make additional revenue, regardless of the well being of the client. This is not how we view and treat our clients at The Weston Center. Your well-being is our #1 concern.
In order to be able to give our clients a professional permanent result the very first time we formulated pigments that would be truly permanent, and not change to undesirable colors over time. What we have created is a state of the art line of pigments that gradually turn from the original color to gray. Meaning that your eyebrows will always match your original hair color with no need to have corrective treatments or touch up procedures. It is our main objective to create for you a natural-looking set of eyebrows that will be with you for the rest of your life.
When you come to The Weston Center for your procedure, you will get the knowledge of Mark Weston, with almost 30 years of experience creating eyebrows, we will give you the professional positive experience you deserve.
