Why should I consider PMU?
- If you do not wish to apply makeup every morning
- If your brows, lashes & lips are pale or lacking definition
- If you like to maintain your appearance even while swimming, exercising, and sweating
- If you have a skin or makeup allergy
- You are tired of applying & reapplying makeup throughout the day
- You are having oily skin that make makeup application quite difficult
- You have scars or vitiligo
What’s the difference between Microblading & Microshading (Ombré Powder Brow)?
- Microshading uses pin-like dots of pigmentation to achieve a powdered eyebrow look.
- Microblading uses a bladed needle to apply pigmentation underneath the skin. The technician fills your brows by making hair-like strokes that look like natural eyebrow hair.
Types of PMU?
- Ombré Powder Brows: Ombré Powder Brows is a form of semi-permanent eyebrow styling technique, that creates a soft shaded brow pencil look. This method is great for all skin types and can be done sharp and bold or soft and powdery.
- Lip Blush: Lip Blush is a tattooing of the lips with a semi-permanent tattoo by implanting colored pigment into the lips. A beautiful tint that enhances the natural shape of your lips, giving them a color boost and definition, creating the illusion of fuller lips.
- Eyelash enhancement: or invisible eyeliner, involves tattooing a thin black line along the top lash line to create the illusion of fuller, darker, thicker lashes.
Visiting an PMU Artist
It is always a good idea to schedule a consultation appointment prior to your first treatment, especially if you are new to tattooing treatments. This gives you and your artist a chance to discuss your goals and expectations for the first visit, and long term goals for the future. During a consultation, your artist will go over an extensive intake form, and most likely do a patch test of the ink followed by a detailed skin analysis, including facial mapping. This will give your artist the information she/he needs to create an personalized procedure plan.
What about home care?
Much of the success of beautiful healed results depends on consistent, correct home care. Your artist is trained to select the products that will most benefit your skin, and to advise you on how to maintain your professional results between visits. Like medical or dental care, following the right daily regimen at home is essential if you are to get the most out of your visits to a professional.
