Medical permanent makeup, AKA micropigmentation, implants pigments into the skin (by a cosmetic tattoo specialist) using a hand tool or digital machine. The colors appear vivid after a treatment but patients often need a touch-up procedure to achieve the desired results. Patients that have difficulty applying makeup thanks to arthritis or age, as well those with allergies to cosmetics, find the help they need with this treatment. Patients trying to cover hair loss on their eyebrows have microblading to apply ink and create hair-like strokes to fill-in eyebrows that are thinning. The pigment is implanted using a hand tool that mimics the appearance of natural brow hair in the eyebrows.
