Permanent Makeup: What is it?
Permanent makeup means a cosmetic tattoo on the face. Compared to a “normal” tattoo , permanent pigments make use of fine pigments in the epidermis. In this case, colors are used that do not pose any toxic or allergic risks.
With permanent make-up certain contours on the face can be emphasized :
- Very thin eyeliner on the upper or lower lash line
- Compaction of the eyebrows ( Microblading )
- Emphasis on lip contours and natural lip color
Permanent make-up lips: why?
A pigmentation of the lips serves to:
- Lip Contouring: Beautification of the lip contour, for example on pale and colorless lips or to compensate for proportional differences between the upper and lower lip.
- Lip modeling (partial shading ): Color pigments shade narrow lips to make them look fuller.
- Refreshing the lip color (full shading): Pale or colorless lips are emphasized by the pigmentation so that it no longer requires lipstick.
Important: The contour color should fit exactly to the natural lip color.

Permanent make-up lips: Does the treatment hurt?

So that the skin can regenerate properly and remains beautifully supple, treat the affected areas with wound and healing ointment. Best with disposable gloves or with a cotton swab apply.
Permanent Makeup Lips: How long does the result last?
The durability of permanent make-up is limited in time, because the color pigments do not penetrate so deeply into the skin. Depending on the skin type, permanent make-up lasts two to five years before it gradually fades. Above all, UV rays can lighten the pigmentation faster. Therefore, definitely on a lip care with UV protection ( SPF 50 ) set! A refresh of the color is possible any time.
Permanent make-up lips: Can the color be removed?
The result is not satisfactory? Darker colors can be offset with brighter nuances. Unattractive contours can be overpainted or adjusted. The permanent make-up can also be completely removed, for example by the use of an acidic solution that attacks the sensitive lip skin. Distance is therefore always associated with risks.
