Women go through numerous steps and process to look beautiful and glamourous all the time. This often takes immense amounts of time, efforts, and money. However, Whitlock Tulsa cosmetic surgery has found a way to provide a procedure for women or men who are tired of having to put in extensive amounts of time into their appearance every day.
What is Micropigmentation?
Micropigmentation is a process where color is implanted in the epidermis in the facial areas of the eyes, brows, and lips. The procedure, also known as cosmetic tattooing, allows a woman the freedom to forego the use of cosmetic liners for the eyes, mouth, and brows as well as mascara for the lashes and lip color for the mouth. This way you can look amazing all the time, without having to worry about running to the little ladies’ room and touching up your lipstick or mascara. Not only does micropigmentation enable a woman to look good any time she wants – no more quick touchups or taking time out to apply lipstick, eyeliner, or mascara. Plus, the color implantation eliminates those raccoon eyes or smudges that can result every now and then. Micropigmentation makes life easier for a woman, regardless of her reason for opting for the procedure.

Now is cosmetic tattooing a one – time procedure? How many procedures will you need to undergo to achieve a long lasted, beautiful, and natural look.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, most women undergo a couple of treatments – the initial treatment followed by another appointment 6 weeks to two months later. Touch-up treatments and follow up appointments are required as the implantation colors fade over time. Generally, any pigment that has a blue or red base will remain intact longer than pigments with yellow hues. Depending on the individual, color fading can range from a year and a half to as long as half a decade. However, colors usually begin to lose their intensity after a three-year period. Now you will know if this is something you will be able to keep up in the long run, whoever, Whitlock Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery can help assist and make the process easier on you.
What does the micropigmentation process look like?
The entire process is quite fascinating, and many variables need to be taken into consideration during those first few and necessary consultation meetings. This is where you will decide on what area you’re having done, what colors etc. The colors you choose will be based on your skin tone and age. Usually, it’s recommended that older patients, for instance, choose lighter brow colors while younger patients have the latitude to select darker pigments. This is because older patients tend to have lighter hair, and of they were to choose a darker pigment, they would need a touch up or follow appointment more often because when their hair grows out, you’ll see they have lighter tips.
When you undergo the micropigmentation process, a topical anesthetic will be applied before and during the procedure. Our team working here at Whitlock Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery wants to be as comfortable as possible. Therefore, patients experience little pain or discomfort during the treatment. We will also educate you on how you can prepare for your appointment and what you can do post procedure that will ensure a longer micropigmentation period.
After the Procedure
After the procedure is done, you will need to know what the best practices are for taking care of yourself, as well as helping the pigmentation to last as long as possible. In most cases, patients heal after about a week. Patients who opt for full lip micropigmentation, however, take a bit longer to heal. So, there are a few variables as to how long it may take you to heal depending on what service is done, and your age and skin pigmentation. Some patient’s micropigmentation lasts longer because their skin absorbs the pigmentation differently. However, for each particular case, our wonderful staff working for Whitlock Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery will make sure you have all the necessary information you need to enjoy your procedure. Now some common side effects can include flaking or crusting in the treated area. It’s important to highly moisturize these affected areas. After the procedure and during healing, patients will experience a color loss of about 30 percent. Therefore the follow up appointment after a period of six weeks is highly important. It allows us to re pigment the original area, so that the color will last longer.
