The history of Mircopigmentation? 

Tattooing has always been prominent in a decorative and cosmetic capacity for nearly 10,000 years.  Both men and women adorned themselves with tattoos, as a form of identification and beautification. When Permanent Makeup  fist became popular, most people did not want to say it was tattooing.  

It was called Micropigmentation, Intradermal Pigmentation, or Dermagraphics; something that seemed more aesthetic or medical, than Cosmetic Tattooing.

   

What is Micropigmentation or Permanent Makeup (PMU)?  

Micropigmentation or Permanent Makeup (PMU) is the revolutionary process of using an ultra-thin needle to deposit pigment below the epidermis (top layer of skin) into the dermis (2nd layer of skin).  The use of various different techniques, equipment and pigments process allows you to change shape the eyebrows, apply a permanent eyeliner or enhance the overall appearance of the face (i.e., eyes, eyebrows, lips), in as little as one or two sessions. 


What are the benefits of Permanent Makeup (PMU)? 

Permanent Makeup allows you to naturally alter the shape and definition of features for both men and women; boosting self-confidence and allowing more personal freedom.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

The content of this website is intended for general information and is not a substitute for consultation that may be required by a medical professional who specialize in individual in health issues:


What is involved during the consultation?

There is an initial consult where your medical conditions are discussed, any concerns are addressed, and your desired results are considered. From there, you and your practitioner of choice will evaluate and determine color selection, measurements and designs.  The implantation process of micropigmentation or permanent makeup can not begin until an agreement is confirmed between you and your practitioner of choice.  It is strongly suggested that you are 100% confident with every step during the consultation.


What is the process?

During this procedure, the practitioner will numb the eyebrow area and then carefully implants pigment into the skin using a manual microblading hand tool or a machine.  The microblading hand tool looks similar to an exacto knife or surgical blade, but instead of there being one big blade, there is a series of micro needles in one disposable tool. The microblade is dipped into a selected color of pigment and then is used to make a fine cut, or microstroke, in the skin. The end result strokes should appear crisp and fine. 


The pigments used in this method will been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, it will blend perfectly with your natural brows.  The design and color selection will be determined during your consultation.  


For the best possible healed results, its required that you adherence to strict aftercare instructions, and understanding the healing process.


Is it semi-permanent or permanent?

The answer is yes! This is permanent.   Although, mircoblading is being promoted in the industry and being semi-permanent, it’s only right that I provide the most accurate information as possible.  Where the misconception can come into play is that some stokes can be very light and some strokes dark.  The dark strokes mean that the pigment reached the dermis (2nd layer of the skin) with enough pigment, and the light strokes mean that the practitioner didn’t go deep enough, with little pigment being implanted.  


Depending on the depth of each stroke and the amount of pigment that has been absorbed, this will determine the visibility of pigment.  The natural and mechanical elements that we expose our skin to on a daily basis such as; aging, sweating, sun exposure, anti-aging creams, tanning services; its guaranteed to fade the pigment over a period of time, because you don’t see it doesn’t mean that its not there.  To keep your PMU looking its best, its recommended to get touch up to boost pigment vibrant and fresh. 

* This also applies greatly to lip enhancement treatments. 


Does micropigmentation hurt? 

Before the procedure begins, the practitioner will use a topical anesthetic that will numb the area where the PMU is will be applied.  This ensures that the client is as comfortable as possible, minimizing any discomfort.  The amount of pain is subjective according to ones tolerance. Clients have compared the level of pain to that of a light scratch, and possibly falling asleep while having the procedure done.  

It’s up to the practitioner to try and make sure that your experience is as pleasurable and minimal discomfort is felt. However, everyone is different, so therefore pain is possible. 


Is there any downtime?

After the procedure, you may go back to work.  There’s no need to take off.  However, your area that receive mircopigmentation may feel tender, red and slightly swollen, its normal.   These symptoms will disappear in 2 to 3 days, but everyone’s healing process is different.  To ensure the best results, please refer to aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing.


How long does microblading or a PMU session take? 

Micropigmentation or permanent makeup will require 2 to 3 sessions before a “full release” is given.  The majority of the time spent is during the consultation, deciding the appropriate color, measuring, and design before the procedure can even begin. A professional practitioner will never rush a procedure jeopardizing the quality of a good job.  The an average permanent makeup appointment can take 2 to 3 hours.  


When scheduling your appointment, it is recommended that you allow the maximum time needed to allow the practitioner to provide the most beautiful, natural looking results.  


After your initial application, you may be required to follow up at least 2 more times before desired results are achieved.  After all, this is permanent makeup being applied to the face. So please, be patient it doesn’t happen overnight!


Is it safe?

Absolutely!  100% sterile, disposable needles and supplies are used during the process.  All items that come in contact with each client are single used disposable. 


Are there any risk?

As with any invasive procedure, there are risks involved. These include undesired results in color, allergic reactions, infection, or scarring. Its up to you and the practitioner to make sure that these risk are minimized as much as possible.  Therefore, do your research on your practitioner and be truthful about all things regarding your health and expectations.  


How to choose a qualified PMU artist?

When searching for a permanent makeup practitioner its best to be aware of what your state requirements are.  There are a lot of states that are not regulated, therefore allowing people to get away with performing PMU procedures without any regulations.  What in the world!  Can you imagine?  


Here in the State of Virginia, it is required that an individual complete 90 hours of study at a school where the curriculum has been approved.  Upon completion of the hours an examination for license must be passed before a permanent tattoo license is issued.  Not only does the individual need a license, but the location must have a DPOR issued “tattoo parlor license” to operate. The State of Virginia, also requires that a bloodborne pathogen and CPR certification is held by any practitioner.   


Each business location must be approved by the City of Virginia Beach Zoning & Planning Office, and each facility must be inspected and approved by the City of Virginia Beach Health Department. All business, city and state licenses and permits must be displayed in public view and not be expired!  If you don’t see these credentials displayed, it is perfectly acceptable that you ask.  It’s important that the facility is operating within guidelines according to the state and location jurisdiction. In addition, you want to know:


If they are insured? Insurance company’s require that all licenses and permits are valid or the policy is null and void. 


Do they have unedited photos of their work?


Do they have experience in brow shaping and color theory?


Remember, this is a procedure where the contact of blood is possible.  Therefore, strict health and safety regulations should be followed, making sure that clients safety is 1st ! 


Do your research an choose a practitioner by their credentials, not their price. 

WHAT'S THE HEALING PROCESS ?

image4

The content of this website is intended for general information and is not a substitute for consultation that may be required by a medical professional who specialize in individual in health issues.


What is the healing process for permanent makeup?

The healing time is normally 7 to 10 days.  Upon completing the initial appointment the PMU area will appear thicker, bolder and very dark, this is good because as the area heals the pigment will fade about 30 to 50%, swelling and brow thickness will lessen in about 2 to 3 days.    


How soon will I see my results?

Please remember, PMU application may require more than 2 sessions.  However, the healed results afterwards is solely on the client!  I can not stress to you enough how important it is that you following the aftercare instructions that’s provided to you.  In cases, the skin will not retain the pigment at all, even after the perfecting session.  The body is known at times to reject foreign objects such as pigment.   Picking the scabs as the PMU area will result in pigment loss and/or discoloration.   


The best trained and qualified practitioner can never guarantee the final outcome.  Everyone is different!  Your skin, body chemistry, lifestyle and aftercare routine all play an important factor in how your result will look. 


*If you have any questions about aftercare, it is very important that you communicate with your practitioner.   


What is the healing process for the brows (microblading)?

Beautiful, natural looking brows is the best way to enhance the face, but the healing process can be a bit surprising at first.  Without understanding the process, you may cause yourself a bit more stress and worry then needed.  Again remember it’s a “process”, it wont happen over night.  


Since microblading involves penetrating the skin, causing cuts, there must be a healing process, as it would be with any other break in the skin.  However, because its on your face, your initial reaction is OMG! What have I done?  or No, What have you done ( meaning your practitioner)? But, don’t worry its only the begin, trust me it gets better.


To help understand the process, please see the following:


Day 1: YOU EITHER LOVE THEM OR HATE THEM

You love them, they look amazing

You hate them because you’re not use to having brows and now they are big, bold and noticeable.   

Expect that the pigment will get darker through out the day

DAY 2-5: YOU FREAK OUT! 

They are too dark: The pigment should reach the darkest level by day 2. Don’t worry your brows will lighten over the course of the following weeks. 

They’re too thick:  They may be still swollen.   

They’re flaking:  Remember, its like any other wound that’s healing; a scab begin to form and then fall off.  

DAY 6-10: YOU REGRET GETTING IT DONE

The shape is off.

The color is gone.

DAY 11-15: YOUR ANGRY YOU THINK YOUR BROWS ARE RUINED

DAY  16-30: OK WAIT… YOUR EYEBROWS ARE ON FLEEK!  

At this point, the color should have reappeared and some areas may be patchy.  Remember, that’s why it requires more than one session sometimes.  

DAY 31-45: YOU CANT WAIT FOR YOUR PERFECTING SESSION

Your eyebrows should be fully healed and you’re ready to undergo your perfecting session. 

The purpose of the “perfecting session” is to apply more pigment where color depth is not as deep, or the shape needs to be more defined.  

Your practitioner will not be able to make any adjustments until the brows are fully healed.  Trying to correct brows that are not fully healed, can lead to scar tissue forming. 

6-8 WEEKS: YOU LOVE YOUR BROWS & YOUR PRACTITIONER

Your brows are complete and your should get a full release from your practitioner.  


* Keep in mind, depending on the desired result, some people will require 1 session and some may require 3, it’s all on your personal preference, and the overall recommendation of the practitioner. 

BEFORE & AFTERCARE

image5

The content of this website is intended for general information and is not a substitute for consultation that may be required by a medical professional who specialize in individual in health issues. 


Pre-Procedure

This treatment may not be ideal for you if . . .

  • Do not tweeze, wax or thread or tinting for 7 days prior
  • You have irritation of the skin, such as blemishes, pimples, rash, psoriasis, eczema, or sunburn on or near the area of the procedure.
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You are on Retin-A or Retinols. Please discontinue use of these medications for 7 days before your appointment, and avoid for 30 days after your procedure.
  • You must not have taken Accutane for 1 year prior / NO Exception
  • You have any of the following: Diabetes, Epilepsy, or Viral infections and/or diseases. (If unsure, please contact us).
  • Undergoing chemotherapy (please consult with your doctor).
  • Booking during your menstrual cycle is fine, however, it may increase more pain.
  • No alcohol or caffeine within 24 hours. 
    • This will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.
  • No sleeping on your face: 2 weeks prior.
  • No direct water on the procedure area: 2 weeks prior.
  • No heavy sweating: 2 weeks prior.
  • No exercise: 2 weeks prior and especially the day of your procedure 
    • Body heat expands the pores, which is no good fir the skin.
    • Sweat contains salt and will cause the pigment to prematurely fade, blur or not to take at all.
  • No direct sun exposure: 30 days prior.
  • No Aspirin and/or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Niacin, B6, Omega 3, Gingko Biloba, & St. John’s Wort (these are blood thinners and may have an affect on the anesthetic and Vitamin E (internally): 72 hours unless medically necessary.   Tylenol is fine.
  •  DO NOT tan or get sunburn on your face prior to your procedure. The tan will exfoliate taking pigment with it as it fades. As it heals the pigment will darken making results darker than expected. Also skin that is tanned bleeds easier.
  •  Smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anesthetics will not last as long.   


Post-Procedure

  • *1 DAY WILL RUIN THE RESULTS IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE 2 WEEK AFTERCARE PROTOCOL.   RESULTS MAY BECOME INFECTED OR DISCOLORED.
  • **AFTER THE MICROBLADING PROCEDURE, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO PREVENT SOAP, WATER, LOTION, AND MAKEUP FROM COMING IN CONTACT WITH YOUR EYEBROWS FOR 14 DAYS PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION. 
  • Only touch the treated areas with squeaky clean hands during the healing process. Wash your hands before touching any treated area. Cotton-tipped applicators may be used to gently cleanse the eye area. Do not expose the area to dirty or unsanitary conditions. Wearing glasses outdoors is a good way to protect new eyeliner from dust or debris that can stick to healing agents.
  •  Apply recommended healing agents sparingly, as directed.
  •  Heavy application of ointment and/or moisture trapped under ointment will cause adverse healing results. 
    • Blot frequently to make sure that skin and hair in the treated area is thoroughly dry; free from moisture, and natural oils.
    • Use ointment if the area becomes dehydrated. Apply a very thin layer making sure skin and hair are thoroughly dry first.
  • Do not put face under direct shower spray for the first week after your brow or eyeliner procedures.
  • After a lip procedure, keep your lips moist at all times. Avoid spicy foods or heat. If using herpes medication, continue as prescribed. Switch to a waxy lip balm 6-7 days after the procedure. Do not use teeth bleaching products until fully healed.
  • No DIRECT WATER CONTACT: 2 weeks after 
    • While showering it is advise to keep the face completely away from the shower head to microbladed brows from coming in contact with water.
  • No Swimming: 
    • until the area is completely healed, salt water/chlorine WILL cause the pigments to fade or change in color.  It is recommended to apply the Vaseline to the treated area/s prior to swimming even after healed to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area
  • CREAMS: 10 Days
  • LOTION: 2 WEEKS
  • VASELINE:2 WEEKS
  • CLEANSERS: 10 Days
  • MAKEUP: 
    • Until fully healed No makeup is to be applied for 72 hours after the procedure. After any eyeliner procedure, use new mascara. Do not use an eyelash curler for two weeks.
  • DO NOT RAZOR BROWS: USE WAX
  • WAXING: wait at least 10 days
  • TINTING: wait at least 30 days
  • HEAVY SWEATING: 14 Days
  • EXERCISE: 14 Days
  • DIRECT SUN EXPOSURE: 2 WEEKS 
    • Please avoid bright sunlight. I also advise to wear sunglasses for the first 6 hours’ post eyeliner tattoo procedure.
  • TANNING: 30 DAYS PRIOR TO AND AFTERWARDS. NO EXCEPTIONS! 
    • Tanned skin bleeds easily and makes it hard to determine pigment color. If you continue to tan after your procedure, the results will appear darker, fade very fast and will not be retained. Because of scarring you will not be seen again before your scheduled appointment.
  • BOTOX, FACIALS, CHEMICAL TREATMENTS OR MICRODERMABRASION: 4 WEEKS
  • PICKING, RUBBING OR SCRATCHING: 4 WEEKS 
    • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate and fall off on its own. Picking will cause scar tissue, therefore pigment will not be retained. you increase your chances of infection if fingernails are dirty.

Long-Term Care
Use a good sunscreen daily - even the lips require protection. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics and may cause irritation even years later.  If you are planning chemical exfoliation, IPL, MRI, or other medical procedure, please inform your physician of your cosmetic tattoo.  If you donate blood, it is Red Cross policy that you must wait one year after any tattooing procedure in unregulated states – check if restrictions apply to you.


Touch Ups & Recommendations

Within a week of your first treatment the color will fade significantly and over the next four to six weeks can continue to fade as much as 50%. This is considered an extremely positive occurrence as it allows you time to reflect on your shape and color.

With properly healed procedures, micropigmentation in some cases can last up to 3 years before a touch up is needed.  We recommend that touch up services be performed every 24 months after the perfecting service is complete, and you have a “full release” from the practitioner.  Touch up services will keep the permanent makeup looking vibrant. 


However, its up to the trained professional to determine and advise the best possible maintenance schedule for you since the frequent application can also have natural adverse reactions like “scar tissue”.  Because of scar tissue, it is my recommendation that you avoid touches for at least a minimum of 2 after the your perfecting service.  Once scar tissue is more present in the skin, the ability for the skin to retain pigment will be an issue.  The longer time that is waited between touch up services, the better.  Remember, permanent makeup is not a permanent solution.  At some point, micropigmentation or PMU will no longer be an option.



* If skin is oily, the need for more frequent touch ups may be desired.  Oilier skin can be more problematic due to pigment not being retained as long years .
