What is Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent Cosmetics is a 4,000 year
old process that has been brought into vogue the past 15 years.
Permanent Cosmetics is the permanent application of pigment into the
skin for eyebrows, eyeliner. lip liner, complete lip shape
reconstruction, birthmarks, nipple arcolae (after reconstructive
surgery of mastectomy patients),scar camouflage for hypo and
hyperpigmented scars (this could include burn victins as well as
vitiligo patients), spider vein camouflag, and hair simulation in
scalp for alopecia areata patients otherwise known as tattooing. In
ancient times this process could only be afforded by the elite and
very wealthy. Today, technology and new innovative processes have
made the price affordable for anybody to have this process done.
How does Permanent Cosmetics
At SofTap® Permanent Cosmetics the
process is done by the manual SofTap® method. SofTap® is a registered
trademark of SofTap® Permanent Cosmetics. We use a set of several
fine single needles that are dipped into a permanent pigment mixture
and then applied into the skin according to the desired shape or
design that is pleasing to the client having the procedure done.
What is the SofTap® Technique?
The SofTap® technique is a registered
trademark. Only our graduates have mastered this permanent makeup
technique. The SofTap® technique is a very controlled, gentle and
safe technique compared to other methods. It's so gentle that many
times a topical anesthetic does not have to be applied.
Why do clients prefer the
SofTap® technique over all other permanent makeup procedures?
Simply said, it is the most gentle and
comfortable procedure and it looks the most natural. With the SofTap®
technique individual fine hairs can be easily and artistically draw
on. The final look is natural, soft, powdery and subtle.The method
tries to give you a natural look and is not comparable with the
traditional Tattoo - method! It has much more to do with Cosmetics
than with anything else.
Is it safe?
Of course! The SofTap® technique is
quite safe. With each procedure, fresh pigments are used which
contain safe inorganic ingredients. In addition, only disposable
probes, brushes, and spatulas are used. All non disposable equipment
is thoroughly sterilized via OSHA sterilization procedures such as a
dry heat sterilizer or autoclave. A patch test is suggested to
qualify any color changes that may take place with the undertones of
an individual's skin.The fresh pigment is desposited by the needles
that softly tap and lift the skin, thereby depositing color
permanently into the skin. Traditional methods of tattooing use a
reciprocating needle which pushes the color into the skin. The
SofTap® method gently lifts the skin to deposit color. As a result,
there is a definite difference in the amount of pain experienced by
the client. Many clients, who have had permanent makeup with the
traditional tattoo machine can attest to the fact that the SofTap®
method is far gentler, the skin recovers faster. Clients have been
known to go out on the town immediately after their procedure. The
SofTap® colors have earned their excellent reputation because they
look so natural. They are thick, reach and creamy which allows to the
permanent cosmetic technician complete control in color selection.
