The answers to these questions apply for MicroArt only. MicroArt is proprietary, unique, and unlike any other permanent or semi-permanent cosmetic treatment in the market today. It was scientifically developed to look natural — and avoid the many unpleasant or dangerous side effects all too common with other forms of permanent makeup or microblading. (50% of MicroArt clients are repairing bad permanent makeup done elsewhere)
The shape of the lip can be re-designed for a youthful fuller look. The lip is first lined then completely shaded, for a natural appearance. Your technician is a color expert and will help choose the right color or custom blend a color for you.
STEP 2: Pigmentation
MicroArt Semi Permanent Makeup uses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the dermal layers of the skin depositing a mineral-based pigment into the skin.
STEP 3: The Touch Up
You will return for a touch-up appointment 2 weeks after your 1st session to perfect the shape and color of your lips. This touch-up appointment is included in your price.
Your lips will be puffy right after the procedure. The degree of this varies from person to person. In most clients, most of the swelling will be done in a few hours. The lips will appear brighter in color for a few days after the procedure and the color will start lightning up.
We have a wide variety of colors as well as we can custom blend colors. You can bring in your favorite lipstick and we can match the color. Alternatively, work with your technician to pick the right color for you. This procedure is done in two appointments so that you get to see what the color looks like once it settles in and the color can be adjusted on the 2nd session if needed.
MicroArt is nowhere near as pain full as other forms of permanent makeup. MicroArt uses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the outer dermal layers of the skin, therefore discomfort is minimal without downtime.
We also use a strong medical-grade topical numbing cream.
Maintenance appointments are optional. If you do not maintain MicroArt, it will completely fade away over time. We suggest that if you want to maintain your lips so that they always look their best plan for scheduling a touch up once a year for best results.
