Permanent Cosmetics vs. Permanent Tattoo


Permanent Cosmetics vs. Permanent Tattoo


The major difference between Permanent Cosmetics and Permanent

Tattoo is the depth of the penetration of the skin and the types of

ink/pigments that are used.

Microblading is considered permanent because the pigments are

deposited into the epidermal layer of skin, barely touching the dermis.

The cells in the epidermis layer continuously divide, thus the pigment

is then broken down and will eventually migrate to the surface and

exfoliates off, causing the pigment to fade away.

A 4-6 week touchup is required (Highly Recommended) to perfect the

procedure and fix any loss or over healed pigment. A yearly touchup is

to keep your eyebrows looking crisp and the color refreshed. If you opt

out of any of the touchups and no touchup is done, the Microblading

will start to fade away.

The purpose of Microblading was brought into the beauty industry as a

safer and more conservative approach to a regular eyebrow tattoo.

With the beauty trends revolving and changing, the Semi-Permanent

nature of Microblading is an ideal treatment.


Microblading may not last as long as a permanent tattoo, however,

the results are very pleasing and most importantly, looks natural! 


Permanent Tattooed eyebrows use tattoo ink, while Permanent

Cosmetics use a totally different type called pigment. This specialized

pigment is formulated with no heavy metals or other harsh chemicals

and it allows the pigment to fade into a lighter shade of the color used.

This is the reasoning behind needing periodic touchups. As per the

tattoo ink, it is filled with many harsh chemicals and heavy metals like

chromium and lead and your system cannot break them down.
