When people hear about micropigmentation, they tend to think of what is known as "permanent makeup" - which is essentially a tattoo in place of your eyeliner, lipstick, eyebrows and other places makeup is used.
Although many people decide to get permanent makeup done for convenience, (they save time from the daily procedure of applying, reapplying and taking off their makeup,) others turn to micropigmentation for alternative reasons.
1. They have sensitive skin or allergies.
It is reported that there is an average of 5.7 Million doctor visits each year due to "Contact Dermatitis" - this is an allergic reaction to the chemicals or preservatives in the cosmetics and it causes the skin to break out in an itchy rash.
People susceptible to contact dermatitus, or just have sensitive skin, could opt to have micropigmentation done to still look as if they were wearing makeup, without the irritability.
2. They have poor eyesight.
You can't put your eyeliner on if your glasses are in the way, but you can't see to apply it without your glasses on or your contacts in.
3. They have a medical condition preventing proper application of makeup.
Imagine trying to apply makeup with arthritis, carpal tunnel or Parkinson's Disease. It is difficult to keep your hands steady after a stroke, or for people with Multiple Schlerosis. As we age, many people get unsteady hands or pain in their hands and wrists when trying to be precise with their makeup.
