Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos(permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designsthat resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancingcolors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids. It is also used to produceartificial eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as aconsequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia, chemotherapy, or agenetic disturbance, and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such asin vitiligo. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast's areola, such asafter breast surgery.Most commonly called permanent cosmetics, other names includedermapigmentation, micropigmentation, and cosmetic tattooing, the latterbeing most appropriate since permanent makeup is tattooing. In the UnitedStates and other countries, the inks used in permanent makeup and thepigments in these inks are subject to FDA or similar agency regulation ascosmetics and color additives.
Regulations And Oversight
Permanent makeup regulations vary from country to country: sometimes bystate, province, county or even city to city. In the US, while in most areas itfalls under the cognizance of the Department of Health though State Boardsof Cosmetology are often the oversight agency. In some areas a cosmetologyor esthetics license is required, while in other areas, cosmetologists areprohibited from conducting these procedures. Australian practitioners areprohibited from advertising the procedures as "permanent" since tattoos willfade over time. The purpose of the ACCC action was to inform the publicthat touch ups may be required. Some believe this position is not consistentwith the fact that permanent makeup is tattooing which is permanent.To get natural beauty or health products at low and discount price visit http://www.mallshop2u.com/health.html . 
It is important to ensure that a salon has appropriate approvals from theirlocal health authorities for skin penetration procedures. It is important tonote that just because a salon has local health approvals for general servicesdoes not necessarily mean that they have approval for tattooing.Mobile tattooing (in home) services may be a breach of Health Guidelines insome locations, for example in Melbourne Australia they prohibit mobiletattooing services.
Permanent makeup dates back at least to the start of the 20th century, thoughits nature was often concealed in its early days. The tattooist GeorgeBurchett, a major developer of the technique when it become fashionable inthe 1930s, described in his memoirs how beauty salons tattooed manywomen without their knowledge, offering it as a "complexion treatment ... of injecting vegetable dyes under the top layer of the skin."
Immediate results
Results can imitate topically applied cosmetics or look different dependingupon the design, color value and amount of pigment used.At first, permanent makeup results may look harsh due to color remaining inthe outermost epidermal layers of skin. Color softens within a few days asthe upper layers of epidermis slough and new epidermal cells replace them.
Long term results
While permanent makeup pigment remains in the dermis its "beauty-span"may be influenced by several possible factors. These can be environmental,procedural and/or individual factors. Sun exposure fades color. The amountand color of pigment deposit at the dermal level can affect how long it lasts.Subtle tattoos are more likely to need touch-ups. Skin tones are a factor incolor value changes over time.To get natural beauty or health products at low and discount price visit http://www.mallshop2u.com/health.html .
