Cosmetic Tattoo or Micropigmentation
Ever wondered how celebs, models, and entertainers seem to always have the perfect eyebrows, eyes and lip contour? The answer could lie in the new craze that’s taking the cosmetic world by storm. Micropigmentation is Permanent Makeup and a form of tattooing. It’s not uncommon for many professionals to have this state-of the-art procedure. It’s not a main stream form of tattooing, that most of us would be familiar with. This revolutionary digital machine has sloped needles and custom designed lip which allows pigment to be placed effectively into the curves of the skin. Cosmetic tattooing produces lasting effects that will stay perfect for years. Beyond the mere aesthetic value, with savings in time, money and daily frustration, it’s easy to see why permanent cosmetics have been called the ‘makeup of the future’.

What is Micropigmentation?
Micropigmentation is used in the medical field to enhance the final results of the plastic surgeon, often used to camouflage facelift scars. Repigmentation for skin grafts, burns, mastectomy patients for redesign-recolouration of areola/nipple, or the colour camouflage reconstruction or realignment of a cleft lip. To recreate an areola with “3 dimensional” nipple is now achievable through cosmetic tattooing. The lack of areola arises from a complete or partial mastectomy due to the presence of cancer. Some women and men do not like having areola’s that are too small, too pale, or badly defined.
“When I do a woman’s areola after a mastectomy, the pigment gives a more natural appearance to the nipple and areola area. After surgery, whether it be a facelift of other forms of surgeries, the scarring is disguised with camouflage skin tone pigment.”
This is the perfect tool for those who don’t have a lot of time in the morning, anyone who has allergies to ordinary makeup, people who live active outdoor lives wanting their makeup to stay in place. If you’ve lost hair from alopecia, chemotherapy, accidents, burns, cosmetic surgery, or maybe loss of motor skills, cosmetic tattooing can help. If you want a darker shade of areola, have a cleft lip or vitiligo patches, or just simply have difficulty in applying makeup yourself this is a procedure that should be considered with great outcomes. If you’re worried about pain levels, you don’t need to. Working with the right technique and application your discomfort is minimal.
