Facts About Permanent Makeup and Cosmetic Tattooing

If you’re looking for natural-looking permanent makeup, corrective cosmetic tattooing, non-laser tattoo removal and lightening, skin needling, skin color repigmentation, or scar camouflage in the San Francisco Bay Area, you’ve come to the right place.

The cosmetic tattooing procedure – which includes microblading and other permanent makeup – involves implanting pigment (ink formulated for cosmetic tattooing purposes) into the skin for pure cosmetic enhancement or skin or scar camouflage.

Various procedures are available including tattooing of the lips, eyes, eyebrows, scars, vitiligo, and correction of existing permanent makeup. Eyebrow tattoo procedures involve adding color – usually in the form of individual hairstrokes – to the brow area to make them appear more visible, well-shaped, and fuller. There are various ways of performing these procedures and results vary widely. There are also many names for the procedure including Semi-permanent Makeup, Micropigmentation, Dermapigmentation, Cosmetic Tattooing, Eyebrow Feathering, Eyebrow Embroidery, 3-D Eyebrow Tattooing, Paramedical pigmentation, and Microblading. 

One thing common to all styles of permanent makeup is that no matter what type of pigment or tools are used, everything eventually fades and results will vary from client to client because the skin itself has much to do with how the color heals.

Cosmetic tattooing of hair strokes for eyebrows has been around for years and can be achieved by using either a grouping of needles attached to a machine or with those same grouping of needles attached to a simple manually-powered tool.

Microblading is also synonymous with other creative names surrounding the eyebrow craze such as “eyebrow feathering,” “3D eyebrows,” “6D eyebrows, ” “eyebrow microstroking,”  and “eyebrow embroidery.”

A skilled technician, such as Jeannie, will be draw upon a variety of different techniques – not just microblading – to create the most natural-looking new eyebrows most suitable for your skin.

While just about any previous permanent makeup or microblading situation can be improved and corrected, in some cases the existing color first needs to be removed before it can be properly tattooed again.
 
In contrast to laser tattoo removal (which carries the risk of scarring and loss of hair) non-laser tattoo removal delivers immediate results of drawing ink out of the skin. It works much more quickly and efficiently than laser tattoo removal with virtually no risk of injury to the skin (if properly performed).
 
The non-laser permanent makeup removal procedure is almost identical to the permanent makeup tattoo process except instead of using pigment or ink, a specially-formulated non-toxic tattoo removal solution (no acids are involved) is carefully worked into the skin. Once the solution is in contact with the unwanted pigment or ink, it then starts to draw it out of the skin. This method of cosmetic tattoo removal can be safely and effectively used to remove or lighten everything from unwanted eyeliner, eyebrow (including microblading) and lip tattoos –  and works effectively on all colors.
Microneedling is a safe and effective way to stimulate the skin’s own natural collagen production and offers more natural-looking results and longer-lasting benefits over synthetic collagen injections. It also has the added advantage of little to no downtime with all the benefits of a major skin resurfacing treatment.
 
Skin needling is a targeted version of microneedling that can plump up a depressed area such as a deep wrinkle by creating a specific, controlled injury to stimulate collagen production in the dermal layer of skin. The resulting increase in collagen over time gradually diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, improves scars, and even softens crow’s feet.
 
While popular devices such as dermarollers and dermapens work to help improve the skin’s overall elasticity and texture, skin needling is a more precise method of microneedling that relies on a concentrated cluster of needles to target each particular line or scar that needs attention. Skin needling is also known as collagen induction therapy or collagen rejuvenation therapy and, like microneedling, is a great adjunct to existing professional skin care treatments and use of effective home care products.
