Micropigmentation is an ancient Asian beautification practice that acts as permanent makeup. Minute, metabolically inert pigment granules are implanted below the skin (epidermis) for either cosmetic or corrective enhancement. The needles penetrate the skin a few millimeters, very similar to a tattoo.
Permanent makeup has become popular around the world, not just in Asia, for enhancing facial features such as eyebrows, lashes, and lips. It is also used to improve conditions like scarring and uneven pigmentation (uneven pigmentation), scars from cleft palates and to reconstruct the nipple/areola breast area.
Permanent makeup allows people to enhance their natural beauty with a lasting application. It is a practical solution for busy women who don’t want to have to apply make-up every day. Athletes prefer the application because it won’t smudge or smear with perspiration and it is not washed off in the pool or shower. Older women whose vision has become impaired and have difficulty putting on their make-up by themselves may prefer a permanent application.
