The 10 Major Differences Between
MicroArt™ and Permanent Makeup
#1: THE RESULTS
MicroArt™: Natural, youthful looking results that are so real that no one will know you have had anything done. Its so natural in appearance that even men wear it.
Permanent Makeup: an extremely painful tattoo that looks harsh and unnatural with many side effects some of which can be corrected with MicroArt.
#2: THE PROCEDURE
MicroArt™: Each pair of eyebrows are custom designed to achieve the optimal look, focusing attention on the eyes. Individual hairs are layered onto the skin, creating perfect results.
Permanent Makeup: Solid, unnatural line, colors often change, can only be corrected with laser removal or MicroArt’s camouflaging techniques.
MicroArt™: Precisely placed in the lashes, creating a fuller more natural appearance.
Permanent Makeup: Thick line above lashes .
MicroArt™: Lips are shaped, lined and the color is enhanced and blended.
Permanent Makeup: Usually only lip liner, extremely painful on full lips.
#3: THE EQUIPMENT
MicroArt™: State-of-the-art technology. Costs $15,000, used only by licensed MicroArtists™. Features a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the outer layer of the skin for extreme precision.
MicroArt™ technology uses a single acupuncture needle as thin as a human hair that vibrates on the dermal layer of the skin 80 to 100 times per second. Therefore the results are extremely precise. This level of precision is obtained by using state-of-the-art equipment created exclusively for MicroArt™. As the acupuncture needle gently vibrates on the outer layer of the skin MicroArt’s™ nontoxic mineral-based pigments are absorbed.
Permanent Makeup: Uses standard tattoo equipment, which is available to purchase by anyone without training for $200 and up. Needle: 3 -14 heavy gauge needles are used simultaneously to aggressively puncture the skin.
Because permanent makeup uses a standard tattoo gun, the process of penetrating deep into the skin to place these inks, which are often toxic, will often cause bleeding, bruising, scabbing, scarring and down time. This makes the procedure painful and the results harsh and unnatural in appearance.
#4: THE PRODUCTS
MicroArt™: Only the finest products are used, sourced from all over the world. Pigments are mineral based, non-toxic and cost ten times more than tattoo or permanent makeup inks. There has never been an allergic reaction to any MicroArt pigment. They are commercially manufactured in Europe.
Permanent Makeup: Due to the low cost of permanent makeup lower quality products are used. Permanent makeup inks are inexpensive, sometimes toxic, can cause allergic reactions and often fade to orange, blue and green.
#5: THE PAIN
MicroArt™: Minimal discomfort (similar to waxing), when compared to permanent makeup due to MicroArt’s more advanced equipment products and methods.
Permanent Makeup: Extremely painful, heavy bleeding, scabbing and bruising often occurs. Swelling lasts for many days. Recovery time can last weeks.
#6: THE ARTIST
MicroArt™: Licensed by MicroArt™ and fully insured. MicroArtists™ complete an initial six month, full time intensive training with annual evaluation required for re-licensing.
Furthermore, each MicroArtist™ has to meet all company standards before being licensed, which are the most stringent in the industry. In addition all MicroArtist’s work full time performing MicroArt. Its not something they do on the side as most permanent makeup artist do.
Permanent Makeup: Primarily non-regulated with little to no training. Self determined skill set with no continued education or licensing required.
Permanent makeup training is not regulated by the state and training, if any, is only a few days at most. Their training, the tattoo inks used and the quality of their equipment all create the harsh look commonly associated with permanent makeup.
#7: THE COLORS
MicroArt™: Mineral based pigment colors are customized for each client to achieve the most flawless look.
Over time the pigment gradually fades away. Color can be refreshed and design updated to the client’s desires with a single touch up procedure.
MicroArtist’s all work full time and only perform MicroArt, they are experts in color and have the widest assortment of colors available.
Permanent Makeup inks: Can be toxic and result in allergic reactions. The colors are unnatural and change over time into green, orange or blue.
Usually on the eyeliner, black inks change to blue or green. Over time, as the skin ages, people end up with a thick blue line that stretches and separates from the lash line as the delicate skin around the eyes age.
#8: THE VALUE
MicroArt™ lasts up to 3 years, so as the skin ages and fashions change, clients have the ability to update their style.
Permanent Makeup: Unnatural look that will add time and expense to correct with MicroArt™.
#9: THE SIDE EFFECTS
MicroArt™: None! No bruising, no bleeding, no scarring, no scabbing, no down time. No harsh results. Some clients might experience slight swelling or redness that disappears in about an hour.
