The art of Micro-pigmentation is a unique service developed over the past 15 to 20 years. This art form requires precision and skill on the part of the operator and is quickly becoming a very popular treatment within the cosmetic industry. Micropigmentation is not to be confused with tattooing. While the principle is the same, whereby a pigment is implanted into the skin, the aesthetic result desired is obviously different

A little More About the Procedure
The treatment times vary according to the procedure. It is necessary to retreat the area eight weeks after the original treatment. The pigment can then be expected to last anywhere from two to five years depending on the procedure and pigment color used. Gradual fading will then occur during this period. As aging is a continual process, which means natural lightening of the skin and hair, the fading of the pigment gives the opportunity to change pigment color with each re-touch. Dark colored eyebrows may look great on a twenty or thirty-year-old, but not at all flattering by the age of fifty or sixty.
The discomfort of the procedure varies from one person to another. Some discomfort is to be expected.
Choosing a Technician
The most important factor in choosing a technician is their training and skill rather than cost. Consider the technician’s experience and portfolio. The consultation is of vital importance where confidence in the technician is established. The shape and correct color should be decided leaving no feeling of doubt. Make sure a follow-up procedure is part of the initial cost. Also, ensure that aftercare advice is provided.
