Is Permanent Makeup right for you?

There appears to be much confusion and concerns surrounding Permanent Makeup.

  1. Are you thinking about having PMU but worried in case you won’t like the result?
  2. Are you put off in case it looks too heavy or dark?

If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, then rest assured you are not alone.

As the permanent makeup industry is expanding, these are concerns I hear frequently, and it can be confusing if you’re reading or hearing different things.

The good news is that Permanent Makeup when done by an experienced specialist can deliver great results. The effects can be so soft, subtle, and natural-looking, that people won’t even notice you’ve had it done, because it works with your natural features to create a more defined look, without the effort of a time consuming daily makeup routine.

Maybe makeup is not your thing and you don’t wear it at all, but may just want a better shaped brow or fuller lip line, it’s all about enhancing what you already have or restoring what you have lost for whatever reason.

So what is the difference between Permanent, Semi-Permanent and Tattooed Brows?

The answer to this is simple, it all refers to the same process which involves implanting pigment into the uppermost layer of skin using very fine needling techniques, which lasts longer than any conventional makeup you could use.

It involves two visits six weeks apart, the initial treatment and then a top-up.

How long does Permanent Makeup Last?

Permanent Makeup usually lasts between 1-2 years, which varies from person to person depending on age, skin type, lifestyle and general health. The main factor which affects the longevity of the PMU is UV rays from sun exposure or tanning beds.

Over exposure to the sun will cause your Permanent Makeup to fade more quickly, as the sun causes the skin cells to break down and disperse along with the pigment.

I always recommend using a high factor sun screen daily to help protect your PMU and ensure that the colour lasts for as long as possible. It is also important that the aftercare instructions are followed carefully, especially during the initial healing period after treatment.

Making the decision to have PMU is a very personal one, as it affects the way you look and feel, so you want to make sure you find the a good Permanent Makeup Artist that is right for you.
