Who gets permanent makeup? That's a good question! Alot of women get it for the following reasons:
• To naturally enhance their current appearance.
•To wear makeup when traditional makeup results in allergic reactions or skin sensitivity.
• To look their best even when working out, something that’s especially important for athletes who train all the time.
• To never worry about sweating off or smudging makeup.
• To be able to wear makeup even when visually challenged, which can make applying makeup difficult.
• To be able to wear makeup even when faced with dexterity problems like arthritis.
• To always have makeup applied even when their life or career provides little personal time.
Butttttt permanent makeup has truly evolved! One procedure that I currently offer in my studio is called scalp micropigmentation or scalp esthetics! Scalp micropigmenation is an advanced non-surgical procedure, where cosmetic, semi permanent pigments are used to create the idea of a fuller head of hair. This is a procedure I personally have done on myself and I can tell you, that it has truly done wonders for my self confidence! This procedure isn't just for "balding men". It can be used to treat men AND women whom have areas of density on their scalp. I started losing my hair towards the front of my hairline about 4 years ago (after my pregnancy) and it never grew back in as full as it used to be! You could see my scalp in most pictures if my hair wasn't positioned in just the correct spot! In my mid 30's, I cringed at my options...Hair implants are costly and not an option! Using powders to achieve a more full look just gets messy! Rogaine burned my scalp and didn't do anything! Having scalp micropigmentation as an option was a life saver!
Other services that are offered within the permanent makeup industry include areola tattoos also know as 3D nipples. This procedure is a realistic looking solution for breast cancer survivors, people have very fair areolas and breast reconstruction. (Symmetrically Beautiful by Salina is not currently offering this service) Another procedure offered is scar camoflauge! Have old superficial acne scars that bother you? A darker scar that bothers you? Scar camoflauge might be the answer! Below is an example of a client who has bad scarring from an accident! She has black spots permanently on her face! Picture shows 2 treatments, but we have since completed her 4th treatment and she has about 95% coverage on the areas! She will need to come in every 6 - 12 months for a touchup but otherwise, her treatments are complete!
