Question: Has anyone ever had micropigmentation (permanent make-up) done? Can micropigmentation (permanent) make-up be used to cover areas of skin that are darker than the rest of your skin tone
Answer: yes, if applied by someone with an inkling of talent. always look at their work first and ask them about their experience. this procedure can flatten raised scars and cover up stretch marks - i have had this done myself, and it worked. i also had a lash fill, which is a series of dots placed between my eyelashes. it makes the lashline look fuller without mascara or pencil liner. this industry has progressed a lot in the past few years, but be sure to check your technicians cosmetic backround thouroughly first.

Question: Micropigmentation - freckles - PRO'S HELP!!!? Hi there,
I am a brunette and have a few freckles on my face that are disappearing (...)I like my freckles around the nose pretty much and a friend advised me to get them done by the micropigmentation technique. But she also gave me the idea of doing them myself. So I bought some brown pigment and some needles and tested it. When it finally healed no pigment stayed there... I guess I should have put the needles deeper and they applied the pigment... I just want sone tiny dots on my nose - to make the ones that are already there darker.
( I know I could have it done on the saloon, but the lady told me she would have to gave anesthesia... Wow.. just for a few spots.. I don't want that)
I need a pros advise....
Answer: Your freckles appear because your body produces melanin [the color] as a defense mechanism to UV rays.
So basically, it's your skin telling you it's damaged. I wouldn't recommend going out in the sun because it's horrible for your skin.
All Micropigmentation is, is permanent make up. It's like giving yourself a tattoo. It's so dangerous to do yourself, and I certainly would not recommend that.
If you really want it done, you should have it done by a professional. Make sure the salon or wherever you went is licensed in this procedure. There are many places that do this sort of stuff without permission, and ruin peoples skin.
Question: i want to know about micropigmentation.?
Answer: Micropigmentation has been called permanent make-up for the skin. The treatment is basically a tattooing procedure. Micropigmentation is used either as a cosmetic enhancement or as a corrective procedure for uneven skin pigmentation. It can also be used to improve the appearance of scarring to the skin or to reconstruct the nipple area.
In its cosmetic use, micropigmentation can be used to enhance the lips and eyes. Small amounts of colored granules are implanted by injection into the surface of the skin. When the pigment granules are injected into the lips, they make the lips look darker. Over time, skin pigmentation in the lips fades, and this procedure is used to bring back color to these areas.
Question: does insurance pay for micropigmentation? had breast reduction surgery. aerola needs some "touching up" will insurance pay?
Answer: I'd say no to micropigmentation being covered, because it is for cosmetic reasons. But I'm not 100% sure.
I know some girls who have had that done on a site I frequent, you could ask one of them... http://www.breasthealthonline.com
There is a post about it here: http://www.breasthealthonline.org/cgi-bin/mwf/topic_show.pl?tid=110733&pid=908663&hl=micropigmentation&hlm=phrase#908663
With her explanation of what occurs, I'd say no it is not covered by insurance.
Question: Does hydroquonone lighten permanent makeup? I know that hydroquonone lightens the skin by blocking the formation of melanin in the skin, but can it also lighten permanent makeup? my eyebrows turned out darker than i hoped and i was wanting to try a cheaper, less invasive, at home process than laser removal of the micropigmentation.
Answer: Hydroquinone is not recommended to be put over tattoos. That said, is this a new tattoo? Brow tattooing lightens considerably during a two week healing period.
Question: Getting rid of Spots and Scars? I have eczema and sensitive skin that is subject to scarring. As a kid I was a tom boy and accumulated many scars all over. Now almost every part of my body has spots and scars from previous and current "hardships" I have looked into micropigmentation which is basically filling in the dark spots as if getting a tattoo to match my skin color. But does anyone know a less drastic approach to getting even skin tone all over my body?
Answer: Go to boots and ask about Bio Oil
My mum bought it, I really didn't believe it would work
I had these awful chicken pox scars, because I was dangerously young when I got the pox so the hospital wouldn't permit scratch mits :- \
So I tried that oil and it REALLY works
It makes your skin look so much nicer
Buy a small bottle first and give it a try
If you like it, go for a bigger bottle :]
Rub it in in circles and its more effective I have found

Question: Hey i was wondering if anyone had experience with permanent makeup? i have draw my eybrows on 4 almos 2 years? If any one cld give me before and after pix of themselves with permanent eyebrow micropigmentation that wld be extremly helpful!!
Answer: Someone i know had this done and highly regrets it.
It will look great and save you A LOT of time at first, but over the years it will fade

Answer: There are creams out there that can help get rid of your stretch marks, but you need to find the right one.
I found this on the site I put in the source box below:
Things to look for in a stretch mark cream
There are a lot of creams and ointments out there that claim to remove stretch marks. The best way to fight stretch marks is to increase your skins flexibility before your stretch marks start appearing by using a topical cream on the area before the skin starts to show stretch marks. If you already have stretch marks, hope is not lost. There are creams out there that contain ingredients that help heal the skin while minimizing scar tissue.
Some of the key ingredients that you will want to make sure your cream contains are:
Vitamin A Palmitate
Vitamin A is an essential vitamin and is best known for having positive effects on vision. However Vitamin A is just as important to the largest organ; the skin.
Clinical studies have shown vitamin A to have properties that block the absorption of harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as a stimulating effect on cell regeneration. It has been clinically shown to improve the appearance of striae (stretch marks) and regulate epidermal (skin) cell growth.
Aloe Vera Extract
Aloe vera has been shown in clinical studies to have a positive effect on wound healing and holds anti-inflammatory properties.
As stretch marks start out as microscopic tears in skin layers due to overstretching of the dermis, aloe vera helps heal these small wounds without causing scar tissue to form, effectively preventing the appearance of stretch marks. Aloe vera has been used for thousands of years by the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Indians and Chinese to decrease the appearance of scars and to moisturize and heal skin.
This extract from the aloe leaf protects skin from environmental factors and promotes skin regeneration.
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Grapefruit seed extract is a natural antibiotic used for many different types of skin ailments. It is a powerful ingredient to aid in the healing of skin damage. Grapefruit seed extract helps to restore damaged collagen and elastin, which strengthens and retextures the skin.
As collagen and elastin are responsible for the skins elasticity, improving and stimulating production of the connective tissue cells will prevent skin from tearing and thus prevent the formation of stretch marks. The condition of the skins connective tissue also dictates how well the skin contracts after pregnancy. So not only does this compound improve the condition of your stretching skin, after the delivery it will also aid in the contraction of your skin to its previous appearance.
DL-Penthenol is the scientific name for pro-vitamin B5. It has healing properties on damaged skin as it works to improve the structure of both the lower and upper skin layers. DL-Panthenol soothes skin while stimulating cell growth and differentiation.
This ingredient aids in the regeneration of the skin, therefore aiding in reducing the appearance of existing stretch marks by replacing the scar tissue with new skin cells. It also acts to prevent stretch marks by promoting collagen and elastin production, which allows your skin to stretch without rupturing and causing stretch marks.
A cream that has shown to be highly effective at preventing stretch marks as well as healing stretch marks that you already have is Stretch Mark Prevention by Revitol.
Whether you are afraid that stretch marks may be in your future of if they are already a part of your life, the Stretch Mark Prevention cream is the product you will want on your side!
Question: i want to know about micropigmentation.?
Answer: The permanent makeup or micro pigmentation is a type of tattoo by means of a demography with disposable needles that deposit pigments in the epidermis and superficial dermis.
Micro pigmentation, also known as permanent makeup, enhances facial features such as eyebrows, lashes, and lips, and improves conditions like scarring and uneven pigmentation. The treatment can also be used to reconstruct the nipple and areola area of the breast.

Question: Has anyone ever had micropigmentation treatment on bodily scars? I've read that the visibility of scars can be reduced non surgically through a procedure called micropigmentation treatment. Have you had this done? What can you tell me about your experience?
Answer: remember that when the skin's matrix is damaged it will never be the same again. sounds like your talking about CO2 laser or microdermabrasion? both treatment will only lesson the discoloration and flatten them out some. the only way to remove a scar is to cut it out but then your left with another scar. if you want something that works and wont cost you a pile of cash, try mederma. you can ask the druggist for it, non Rx. i had a nasty scar from knee surgery at 17 and at 35 i started applying the cream every night. now its flat,smooth and the same color as the surrounding skin. good luck
