Groupon take a look into the procedure of semi-permanent make-up application...
What is semi-permanent make-up?
Semi-permanent pigments are applied to the surface layer of skin, designed to define and enhance natural facial features. The pigments are implanted using microfine needles, a process which is also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing. Effects will gradually fade over time, depending on factors such as age, exposure to sun and general skin care; however, top-ups can rectify this.
What areas can be worked on?
This deal is for: eyebrows, which are designed to look like natural hair, eyeliner, for a more dramatic look, drawing attention to the eyes, or lipliner, which aims to create fuller-looking lips.
What happens at sessions? A patch test will be carried out, before a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the area worked on, and the make-up is applied by implanting colour into the skin, a technique inspired by tattooing.
What about recovery?
Clients are likely to experience minor swelling of the treated area, which should fade over the following one or two days. The area will also look darker in colour immediately afterwards, with final results taking a few days to appear.
