Enhancing Your Unique & Natural Beauty
At Biggs & Collins Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Houston, we help complete your natural assets by enhancing your own unique beauty. The concept behind permanent makeup is twofold: a) to cut back on the valuable time you spend applying makeup to your face, and b) to give you the confidence that comes with both feeling and looking beautiful from the moment you wake up.
Permanent makeup will:
- Save you time and money
- Enhance your natural facial assets
- Give you confidence in your own beauty
What is Permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup, also known as Intradermal Pigmentation, or micro-pigmentation, is a cosmetic tattooing procedure. This state-of-the-art technique inserts microscopic particles made of naturally occurring pigments into the upper dermal layer of skin.
Permanent makeup may be used on:
- Eyelid (eyeliner)
- Lips (lip liner or color)
- Freckles/Age spots
Currently, there are three methods of application: hand-tapped, rotary/coil machine, or via state-of-the-art digital equipment.
Because it's done by hand, the hand-tapped method is a slower process that depends on the skill and artistry of the technician. The rotary/coil machines are among the most used today and are known as the tattoo gun. This method also takes skill, but is more consistent than the hand-tapped method. The most state-of-the-art method is the digital and computerized equipment available and is considered more stable than most, creating beautiful results with a more comfortable experience.
As with any tattooing process, the degree of discomfort will depend on your unique body properties, as well as the location on your body -- some areas of your skin have more nerve endings than others -- and, of course, the use of anesthetics.
Here at Biggs & Collins, the procedure is performed by our highly skilled technicians, and is proven to be not only safe but effective, resulting in immediate results with minor swelling and discoloration for only a few days.
