Skin Micropigmentation in Singapore for Different Skin Types
skin micropigmentation in singapore for different skin types

Skin micropigmentation has been growing in popularity in Singapore, especially for those who no longer want to spend too much time fixing their makeup. If you are experiencing the same issue, it is easy to have the procedure done. Do your research for a credible studio and permanent makeup (PMU) artist, to be sure that you are in the right hands. However, aside from finding a reputable studio and a good PMU artist, there are more things you need to consider.

When you decide to undergo the procedure, you need to take into consideration your skin type. Much like makeup products, skin micropigmentation produces different results for different skin types. It doesn’t mean that you cannot have permanent makeup done just because you have a particular skin type. Your PMU artist should be able to assess aspects of your skin and adapt the procedure accordingly.

It will also help for you to know more about your skin type and how skin micropigmentation pigments may react to it. To help you, here are the different skin types and how they can affect the results of your procedure.

Micropigmentation for Different Skin Types

There are four common skin types that you may fall under: normal, oily, dry, or combination. As we established earlier, each has some considerations when you undergo skin micropigmentation. Also, your skin’s sensitivity should be an essential factor to consider, though it is not a “skin type.” Here is how you can tell which skin type you have and how semi-permanent makeup performs on it.

Normal Skin

People with normal skin are not prone to breakouts. Another indication that you have this skin type is that your t-zone (the area across your brows and the centre of your face) stays hydrated.

Normal skin can adapt to pigments fairly well. The results will heal very evenly. The pigments can last the average length of time, and you’re not expected for touch-ups for at least 1 to 1.5 years unless it becomes necessary.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is naturally supple and hydrated, as very oily skin tends to have larger pores. It is a reason why people with this skin type age very nicely. However, the downside is that excess oil can clog your pores.

Permanent makeup artists are frequently asked whether or not skin micropigmentation works for those who have oily skin. The answer is yes, though your PMU artist should take into consideration how much oil your skin produces.

Generally, skin micropigmentation on oily skin produces results that are more powdery when healed, compared to dry skin types where the result is crisper looking. If your skin only has slight oiliness, it will mostly heal like normal skin types. On the other hand, if you experience extreme oiliness, the results tend to look softer, and the colour may spread out. 

The colour will fade quicker on oily skin, as oil comes through your skin regularly, diluting the pigment. You will most probably be asked to return for touch-ups sooner than the usual one year. However, do not let this stop you from having skin micropigmentation. A good PMU artist will know how to perform this procedure and adapt it to your skin type to produce the best results.

Dry Skin

Nearly invisible pores characterize dry skin. If your skin often feels tight throughout the day, or you experience flaking from time to time, this may be an indication that you have this skin type.

Skin micropigmentation in dry skin heals very cleanly. For other permanent makeup procedures, such as eyebrow microblading, the pigmented hair strokes look very crisp and clean when healed. This skin type also retains the colour for the longest time (about more than 1.5 years). It is because not much oil comes through the skin, not causing the pigment to fade.

Combination Skin

As the name suggests, combinations have the characteristics of normal and dry skin. A sign that you have this skin type is when your t-zone feels hydrated by your cheek area, feels drier or experiences flaking.

If you have this skin type, different types of micropigmentation procedures may yield different results. If you are having eyebrow fixed, it will most react like normal or slightly oily skin, as this area tends to be oilier. For all other permanent makeup procedures, combination skin heals similarly to normal skin types.

Sensitive Skin

People who have sensitive skin will most likely have a different healing experience when undergoing skin micropigmentation. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience slight pinkness, lasting several days or weeks longer than typical. You may also experience some slight swelling during the day of the procedure, which is uncommon for others. Again, sensitive skin is not a skin type but is a characteristic, so no matter what skin type you have, you can still have sensitive skin.
