DermopigmentationOTHER TREATMENTS

Dermopigmentation (eyebrows, lips and eyelids)

The dermopigmentation technique, also called micropigmentation or permanent makeup, it works at the level of the deep epidermis and for this reason it is a long-term treatment (approximately 3 to 4 years).

It is a procedure fast and effective in order to enhance the features, correct asymmetries, depigmentation and dyschromia achieving immediate changes.

How is it the procedure?

It consists of the superficial implantation in the skin of some pigments, by means of micro-needles. Dermopigmentation or semi-permanent chromatic makeup represents an option to obtain, even if only for simple comfort, a stable and unalterable aesthetic make-up. Everything is done with disposable material, under total quality control.

What kind of pigments do we use?

The pigments are natural of vegetable origin, they do not have preservatives or chemicals, for that reason they do not last a lifetime and are reabsorbed over time (from two to three years). 

It has no contraindications, it is performed under local anesthesia and allows immediate results to be seen.

Before and after

In which parts of the body can it be applied?

It is mainly used in lips, eyebrows and eyelids. It is done on eyebrows sparse and/or asymmetrical, through the hair-to-hair technique, an eyebrow with a natural effect is achieved, leaving them perfect every day with an ideal frame for the face.

In eyes It allows to give it a frame with the technique of dotting on the birth of eyelashes, achieving a delicate finish. With the linear technique, it gives a more rigid outline, achieving an intense look on both the upper and lower eyelids.

In the lips A visual effect of lip augmentation is achieved by simply making a design that improves asymmetries and loss of color, with the pigments the edges are defined and they regain freshness and sensuality.

Micropigmentation is also used for reconstructive purposes, not only aesthetic. In the case of breast reconstruction due to mastectomy or alopecia of the scalp, eyelashes or eyebrows, or due to hair loss due to chemotherapy, the procedure is the same. The area is drawn with the corresponding measurements, anesthetic cream is applied locally and the work is carried out with excellent results that help to overcome these difficulties.
