Permanent cosmetic makeup is a state of the art form of cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” or “dermagraphics”. The cosmetic makeup implantation technique deposits tiny individual implants of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin.
Permanent cosmetics & makeup procedures are performed using various machines and methods, including the traditional (or specialized) tattoo or coil machines, the pen or rotary machine and the non-machine or hand method. These procedures are commonly performed on eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip color.
These kinds of procedures include the initial consultation, initial application of pigment, and usually one or two follow up visits for adjusting the shape and color or density of the pigment.

Are Permanent Cosmetics really permanent?
Technically, these procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance. It is important to consider this and all aspects of the procedure when selecting a potential technician.
