Permanent Makeup Basics

Permanent makeup mimics the look of just-applied lipstick, lip liner, eyebrow pencil, and eyeliner. It's done through a process called micropigmentation, where a medical pen is used to inject permanent ink into the skin. Each procedure takes between 30 and 120 minutes, and a local anesthetic to numb the area being tattooed is used. Just like any tattoo, initially the color will appear brighter or darker, then will fade. The area will be swollen for anywhere between 2-5 days and will crust over before healing.

Permanent Makeup vs. Tattooing or Cosmetic Tattoo

It is very similar to Tattooing but different machinery and skill since the gun is designed for medical applications only. A lot of people ask what is the difference between Permanent Makeup and Face Tattooing and it’s essentially the same thing since it can ONLY be performed by a certified Micropigmentation technician. A traditional Tattoo artist by law and under the Bodysafe program is not allowed to Tattoo on the face. Women often search for places to do an Eyebrow Tattoo, Lip Tattoo or Eyeliner Tattoo not knowing that the industry terminology is called Permanent Makeup or Micropigmentation. Often a visit to a Tattoo shop is quickly discovered that they do not offer these services and normally refer to a business that has a certified technician like Glow Day Spa.

Questions & Answers

What is the difference between Permanent Makeup vs.
Microblading for Eyebrows?

Though Microblading and Permanent makeup seem like the same thing, they are actually worlds apart. Let’s explore the difference between Permanent Makeup and Microblading for your eyebrows. It’s an understandable and expected question for those interested in Semi-Permanent Cosmetics for their face to find out the best option for value for money, safety and long term results. So we will focus on all the details between the 2 methods to avoid any confusion during your decision to have Permanent Makeup services done at Glow Day Spa.

Microblading for Eyebrows

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup application that started in Asia in recent years; it can also be called Microstroking. Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the epidermis to create the look of fuller brows. This form of tattooing is Semi-Permanent Makeup that only lasts anywhere between 1-3 years predicated on the environmental exposure it receives. The results are achieved with a sharp, hand-held manual blade made up of 7+ micro needles. Instead of outlining and completely filling in the outline of your brows with color, microblading allows for the placement of hair like strokes into the skin. Microblading uses a manual blade and only targets 3 layers of skin, whereas Micro Pigmentation can push ink 7 layers deep into the skin. Because the pigment sits superficially in the skin the strokes can they mimic the look of real hair since they are light in color. Microblading pigments will slowly change color as they lose saturation over time. With only a 1-2 year expected life of the semi-permanent process of Microblading, the client can change the way their brows look as trends change. Microblading should be preformed using aseptic technique, needles must always be sterile and single use, the technician must disinfect the area of the skin prior to the tattoo service and clinical grade single use associated equipment and sterile consumables are highly recommended.

Permanent Makeup for Eyebrows

Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing also known as micro-pigmentation or derma-pigmentation, and permanent cosmetics. Natural-looking enhancement eyeliner, lips, and eyebrows are all areas that permanent makeup is traditionally applied to. It results in enhanced facial features that would typically be done with cosmetic makeup that looks natural and beautiful. Permanent makeup uses different technology and medically graded tools versus regular tattooing. A Permanent makeup technician will use state-of-the-art computerized technology to implant pigment into the dermis layer. A well informed and experienced permanent makeup artist will always use safe pigments and techniques that are certified and insured. Although Permanent Makeup do many types of medical cosmetic improvements – it’s most popular service is on eyebrows. Your new brows will last anywhere between 3-5 years predicated on the environmental exposure it receives. The benefit with permanent makeup is its ability to create natural and full looking eyebrows versus Microblading which has a cross-stroke effect which doesn’t look as full. There is also a feathering technique which can be used for a more natural look versus “colored in” eyebrow shapes.
