Micropigmentation: Everything you need to know about this procedure!


Do you dream of waking up beautiful and wonderful every day without having to apply makeup? Micropigmentation can help you correct flaws and scars, so you can always feel confident in your own skin!

In this article, we will explore more about micropigmentation, its advantages and the care needed after the treatment. Read on, clear all your doubts and find out if this is the right procedure for you!

What is micropigmentation?

Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent make-up process aimed at improving the appearance of certain areas of the body, such as eyebrows, lips and eye lines, for example.

This procedure is a popular option highly sought after by people who want to improve or change the appearance of their facial features, without having to resort to daily touch-ups and extensions.

Contrary to what many people think, micropigmentation IS NOT a tattoo! Micropigmentation is much more subtle and less invasive than a tattoo. While tattoos reach the three layers of the skin, micropigmentation only affects the most superficial layer.

During micropigmentation, what happens is: the pigment of the right color to the client's need is injected into the upper layer of the skin with the help of a fine needle, in order to create the desired effect.

How long does micropigmentation last?

The duration of micropigmentation varies according to the area where the procedure is applied, the depth of the color used and the type of skin and scarring of each person. Still, in general, the results of micropigmentation can last from a few months to several years. For example, eyebrow micropigmentation can last up to 2 years!

It is considered a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced professional. However, like any procedure of its kind, micropigmentation is not risk-free. This aesthetic intervention can cause infections, allergic reactions, changes in pigment color and scarring. Therefore, it is essential that you choose a trusted professional and follow all post-procedure care instructions, in order to guarantee the best results and minimize risks.

5 Main benefits of micropigmentation:

  1. Saves you time: Micropigmentation allows you to look the way you want without having to waste time on makeup or daily hair extensions;
  2. Natural-looking procedure: Microblading can be done to mimic the natural look of your eyebrows, lips or other areas you want to correct or highlight, improving the overall appearance of your face;
  3. Improves self-esteem: Many people claim to feel more confident in themselves after micropigmentation. This technique is ideal to help correct imbalances in appearance or to complement other aesthetic procedures;
  4. Practical procedure for people with vision or motor difficulties: Micropigmentation can be especially useful for people who have vision or motor difficulties and therefore find it difficult to apply make-up;
  5. It has a lasting effect: Micropigmentation does not last forever, but it has a lasting effect, especially when compared to other methods. It is common for this type of procedure to last up to many months or even years, depending on the type of pigment used and the patient's lifestyle.

After any aesthetic procedure, it is very important to follow all the indications provided by the professional, so that healing takes place without problems and that you can achieve the results you want with micropigmentation.

Precautions to be taken after micropigmentation:

  • Apply sunscreen;
  • Avoid exposure to the sun;
  • Do not rub or scratch the treated area;
  • Avoid immersing the treated area in water.

These are just a few examples of care to be taken with micropigmentation. You should always listen to any indication that the professional who performed the procedure has for you, as there may be other precautions to be taken in your specific case.

Frequently asked questions about micropigmentation:

  • Does micropigmentation hurt? - The level of pain can vary from person to person, but micropigmentation is often described as a stinging sensation. In my case, I always apply an anesthetic for the total comfort of the client. Therefore, in my salon, micropigmentation is a PAINLESS procedure!
  • How long does it last? - The duration of micropigmentation will always vary depending on the type of pigment used, the area treated and the client's lifestyle. However, it is expected to last for many months or even years.
  • How long does it take to heal? - Healing usually takes between 7 to 10 days, during which time the treated area is expected to become red, swollen and more sensitive. Still, it can take up to 30 days to get the perfect result.
  • Does micropigmentation need retouching? - Each case is different and the need for retouching will always depend on the type of skin, the procedure chosen and the care after the procedure. However, for the finish to be perfect, I always recommend an evaluation and touch-up after 30 days, when the micropigmentation has completely healed.
  • Is it possible to remove micropigmentation? - Yes, it is possible to remove micropigmentation. However, it is a very time consuming and very expensive process. It is recommended to wait until the pigment disappears naturally.
  • How to choose a qualified professional? - It is very important to choose a qualified and experienced professional to perform micropigmentation. Always check that the professional has a good reputation, reliable references and a portfolio of work he has done in the past. If you identify with the professional, you can also schedule an evaluation before the procedure to discuss your expectations, expected results and ensure that you feel comfortable moving forward with the procedure.
