Permanent Makeup and Microblading: Why do I need 2 treatments?

20230726 141239 0000Permanent makeup and Microblading also known as micropigmentation, semi permanent makeup, is typically a two-part process for several reasons:

Initial Application: The first part of the process involves the initial application of the permanent makeup. During this stage, I use specialised equipment to deposit pigments into the dermal layer of the skin, creating the desired effect such as eyebrows, eyeliner, or lip colour. This requires precision and attention to detail to achieve the desired results.

Follow-Up Appointment: After the initial application, a topup appointment is scheduled. This appointment usually takes place several weeks after the first session, allowing the skin to heal and the pigments to settle. The follow-up appointment is crucial because it allows the technician to assess the healed results and make any necessary adjustments or touch-ups.

There are several reasons why the process is divided into two parts:

Colour Adjustment: During the healing process, the initial colour of the pigments may lighten considerably or change slightly. The topup appointment allows me to evaluate the colour outcome and make any necessary adjustments to achieve the desired shade. This ensures that the permanent makeup matches the client's preferences and natural colouring.

Healing and Settling: The skin undergoes a healing process after the initial application and the pigments need time to settle into the skin. The topup appointment allows me to observe how the pigments have settled and make any necessary corrections or touch-ups to areas that may have experienced uneven fading or colour loss.

Client Satisfaction: Permanent makeup is a long-term commitment and it is essential to ensure that the client is satisfied with the results. By dividing the process into two parts, it provides an opportunity for the client to provide feedback and make any desired adjustments to achieve their desired look.

Overall, the two-part process of permanent makeup allows for colour adjustments, healing, settling, and client satisfaction, ensuring that the final results meet the client's expectations.
