What are the differences between the permanent and semi-permanent make-up or cosmetic tattoo procedures and which is recommended for an active lifestyle?
The semi-permanent make-up or semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo is called as such because its effects have extended life-spans, lasting between 2-5 years (this also depends on your skin type and lifestyle), period after which the make-up tattoo starts fading and you might want to re-touch it or let it fade away for good. This happens because the semi permanent make-up or semi permanent cosmetic tattoo is a procedure consisting in mechanically inserting pigments into the skin, pigments which are made of inorganic minerals that in time get absorbed by the superior layers of the dermis. These minerals are hypoallergenic, fragrance and emollient-free, so they blend well with your skin's construction. With the semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo you can safely benefit from a hair simulation or a lip line enhancement procedure and even your eyes can be highlighted by choosing to have an eyeliner tattoo or getting your eyebrows thickened or reshaped. Moreover, in case you need to reconstruct your breasts after a mastectomy, you can always choose to have an areola repigmentation or a 3D nipple tattoo. The results are immediate and very long lasting, the semi-permanent make-up or semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo being an excellent choice if you want to wake up in the morning without having to worry about putting on make-up and still have naturally beautiful face for the entire day.
Instead, the permanent make-up or cosmetic tattoo is using the classical tattoo ink, the same one that is used in common tattoos. This ink is made out of pigments that contain heavy metals, iron oxides, metal salts and even plastics. Such a composition is known to cause birth defects and even cancer, among others. Plus, if you need to have an MRI consult, you might get heavy burning sensations on the tattooed area. Generally, the permanent make-up tattoo is just like a common tattoo, the difference is that you are tattooing certain features of your face forever, tattoos which can be very dangerous for your skin and highly bothersome when you eventually get bored of the make-up design.
