What Are Permanent Cosmetics?

Permanent cosmetics are the perfect solution for the busy and/or athlete, or those who just want a beautiful, hassle-free look.

Permanent cosmetics is a process also known as “Micro-pigment implantation.” Tiny pixels of pigment are implanted into the skin to create an illusion or enhancement where hair or color is lacking. There is, however, more than one technique with which to apply color to the skin. A properly trained and certified derma-pigmentation specialist performs each procedure through the modern, safe method of micro-pigment implantation. Though often compared to standard tattooing in concept (both apply permanent color to the skin), our technique is actually much closer to electrolysis. Using an extremely mild application, in a most delicate procedure, M.P.I. uses a completely controlled method of applying subtle micro insertions to create a “natural” look.
When complete, the individual does not look as if he or she is wearing cosmetics, but rather appears as if the person just naturally doesn’t need any make-up at all!

What Are The Advantages of Permanent Cosmetics?

Permanent make-up is perfect for the busy person who has little time to apply make-up.

Is Permanent Make-up Really Permanent?

Here at Laser Center of Orlando many of our patients wonder if permanent make up is really permanent. The answer to this question is although some minor “fading” may occur, the pigment will remain in the skin for a long period of time. With proper skin care, the effect of the cosmetics should last roughly a few years between “touch-ups”.

The Procedure

Is There Discomfort Involved?

In the most delicate areas, some minor discomfort may be experienced. The use of topical anesthetic helps to lessen most discomfort. Everyone has a different threshold of pain but overall the discomfort is short lived in exchange for long term reward that you get from the procedure.

How Safe is the Procedure?

The procedure is performed in a clinical environment using new, sterile probes for each individual. This minimizes risks to the patient.
