Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup dates back at least to the start of the 20th century, though its nature was often concealed in its early days. The tattooist George Burchett, a major developer of the technique when it become fashionable in the 1930s, described in his memoirs how beauty salons tattooed many women without their knowledge, offering it as a “complexion treatment … of injecting vegetable dyes under the top layer of the skin.

Permanent makeup

is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eye-lining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids.

Who should consider permanent cosmetics?  Women who apply makeup on a daily basis and have for many years, are the first to consider permanent makeup for themselves. A woman’s natural coloring begins to fade as she ages and with repeated exposures to toxins in our environment such as pollutants, chemicals and with the effects of the sun. Gone are the rosy colored lips of our youth that we now find needing a touch of lipstick several times throughout the day.

Women who are allergic to conventional makeup often consider permanent makeup as an alternative. Aging and the need for eye glasses as well as other health issues related to loss of motor skills such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, stroke or Parkinson’s disease are practical reasons for considering permanent cosmetic application. Active women who want to look their best no matter the circumstances, such as during swimming, a game of tennis, bicycling, aerobics and dancing often worry about sweating off and having to reapply their cosmetics. Permanent cosmetics is the ideal solution!
