What is dermopigmentation or permanent makeup?

Would you encourage yourself to tattoo your eyeliner? Or the eyebrows? We get all the doubts about this technique that maybe you already knew and that saves you many minutes every morning.

manent makeovers are actually “cosmetic tattoos” and are becoming more and more popular. The technique used to make them is dermopigmentation , which is basically the coloring of the skin.

Unlike tattoos, however, dermopigmentation is a subepidermal technique. This means that it does not reach the deepest layer of the skin (the dermis) and therefore is semi permanent; Does not last for life, but after a few years you have to do the process again .

WHAT IS IT FOR?

Dermopigmentation is used to improve the physical appearance of people in general. That is to say:

– To correct and mitigate imperfections. For example, when there is not a lot of hair on the eyebrows, either by a bad previous hair removal, by a scar … Or even in parts of the head where there is little hair. It is also used when the shape of the lips, for example, is not symmetrical or are very finite.

– In reparative surgeries , to hide areas blurred by interventions, such as breast auras in cases of tumors.

– As a semi permanent makeup, to look flawless and natural at all times without wasting time every day to apply each product. It is ideal for women who want to enhance some feature, such as the outline of the lips, the outline of the eyes, some mole, etc.

THE PROCEDURE

To begin with the process, you must have an interview with the specialist who will do the drawing. In that interview usually, a first preliminary design is made on the skin to see how it would look and choose the right pigments, which vary according to the skin tone.

Once the shape and color of what is to be done is decided, we can submit to the drawing itself. There we apply local anesthesia to eliminate the sensitivity of the area. With a pencil, the lines of the face or area to be treated are defined and then the pigment is applied. The session can last from 30 to 90 minutes , depending on the surface and the level of detail that is required. For example, eyebrows are drawn hair by hair, which can take a long time.

The makeup lasts approximately three to five years , depending on the type of skin, the colored area and the care given (eg, sunscreen).

Likewise, it is necessary to consider that at the month of the treatment, it is necessary to do a retouch, to finish fixing the color. After that, most specialists do the necessary amount of retouching without charge.

The cost of dermopigmentation sessions varies a great deal depending on the different specialists and depending on the area chosen, but to get an idea, the eyelid can cost between $ 2000 and $ 3000, including retouching.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I REPENT OR DO NOT LIKE IT?

Luckily, it is possible to eliminate what is tattooed on the skin with a good aesthetic result with laser treatments. Although it is necessary to take into account that even with this technique can not guarantee a perfect result. In addition, it is necessary to consider the area where the permanent makeup or tattoo was performed. The eyes are a very delicate and difficult area, for example.

Clarification: Pregnant women, cancer patients, patients with diabetes, patients with coagulation problems can not be given dermopigmentation. Neither can those who have active herpes in the area to be treated.
