WHAT IS MICROPIGMENTATION?
Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent drawing of eyelids, lips, and eyebrows. Micropigmentation offers different techniques to correct natural defects but also to highlight contours, they are Ombre Technique and Microblading.
These are in accordance with the aesthetic rules and not always with the clients’ desires.
Our goal with micro-pigmentation is to make corrections in color and shape, without a heavy make-up effect. In order to successfully perform the treatment, the skin must not be in the regeneration process, i.e. it must not be damaged. If the client is prone to herpes, he/she should reduce the possibility of its occurrence by adding supplements to their diet.
Lip pigments should always match the natural color of the lips, while eyelid pigments should match the natural color of the hairs. The technique is intended for anyone over the age of 18 (persons under 18 must be accompanied by their legal guardian).
Pain during the treatment is relative and can occur. Scared clients usually feel stronger pain, while the other clients compare the pain to an eyebrow plucking pain. In addition, with women having periods there is an increased sensitivity to pain, so it is not recommended to do the treatment while ladies are on their period. It is possible to use light anesthetics, in form of cream or liquid, to completely eliminate pain during the treatment.
All treatments are done with sterile, hygienic, and disposable tools that offer the clients the highest and safest standard by using pigments are of the highest standard. Correction is done a month after the treatment as 10-15% of strokes are lost after the first treatment. The inserted pigment is very dark during the first 5 to 7 days. 7 days later, it loses up to 40% of its intensity. If you think that pigment is too dark, do not try to fade it by yourself.
Be patient, first wait for 7 days until it fades away naturally. How long the pigment will be retained mostly depends on the skin's oiliness. The oilier the skin is the shorter pigment retention is. Sweating and sun exposure also affect pigment retention.
On average, the expected time until new refreshment of pigment is 10 to 12 months. If the skin is oily, it takes up to 6 months. Healing is completely done 28 days later and then it is necessary to add the pigment that was lost in the meanwhile. If the skin is problematic and oily, several such corrections can be made.
Post-treatment care makes up 70% of total treatment success. Conscientiously stick and adhere to the given advice, because if you don’t do that, you can lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. Rinsing and applying the cream is of great significance.-
How successful the treatment will depend on:
• skin quality
• post-treatment care
• exposure to various external influences.
None of these factors are under the Artist’s control, thus providing any guarantee for the treatment is not possible.
