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)
MicroArt can camouflage all types of scars including those from cosmetic or therapeutic surgeries, burns, suicide attempts, accidents, etc. Different areas of the body have very different skin types and thicknesses.
The Color: Your technician will evaluate your skin color at the beginning of each session and custom blend a color to match your skin tone.
Pigmentation: During each appointment, a layer of pigment is added to the skin. MicroArt uses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates in the dermal layers of the skin depositing a mineral-based pigment until your vitiligo is completely camouflaged and the skin tone matches.
There will be some irritation right after your treatment. This calms down and disappears in 3-10 days after each treatment. The number of irritation varies depending on a number of factors, the general health of the client, what area of the body was worked on, and how much pigment was applied. After a few days, the skin will slightly exfoliate and the pigment settles in.
It is important that you use the MicroArt after-care products provided for 7 days after each session and no makeup or other products should be worn on the area for 7 days after each session.
While pain is minimal, the level of discomfort varies from person to person depending on what area of the body is being camouflaged. A strong topical numbing cream is used.
MicroArt uses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the outer dermal layers of the skin, therefore discomfort is minimal. For extremely sensitive areas numbing injections may be scheduled at an additional cost if requested.
If the procedure is performed on your hands, or if the procedure will exceed three hours, numbing shots are required.
When your skin tans, the mineral-based pigment applied to the skin will not change color or tan with the surrounding skin.
We advise our scar camouflage clients to maintain a constant skin color throughout the year so that their MicroArt makeup will maintain the best color match for as long as possible. However, some clients will schedule a maintenance appointment around the time that they get a tan in early summer so that we can match their MicroArt to that tanned skin color. As the tan lightens up a bit during the winter, MicroArt will gradually fade a little so that it will also lighten up.
