What is a natural pigment?
This does not mean a pigment of natural origin (such as naturally-sourced iron oxide or cochineal), but a natural colour. Natural colour, in restorative micropigmentation, means the exact colour of the mucous membrane, not a makeup style that is incorrectly considered to look “natural”. “Natural makeup” is often used to mean understated makeup.
The technician must know how to combine organic and mineral pigments and colour the lip while ensuring that the traces of pigmentation are not visible. As an industrial manufacturer, BIOTIC Phocea makes it simpler with its BIOCHROMADERM® pigments and a wide range of colours.
For each person, you must use:
- A pigment identical to the colour of the labial mucosa (which can be pinkish, purplish, golden…),
- The technique does not depend on your normal use of the dermograph, but on the correction to be made, so it is unique for each patient,
- The motor calibration must also be non-standard,
- And you must be able to provide personalized advice.
There is no right answer, only case-by-case solutions.
The reconstruction of a burn scar, a skin or mucous membrane graft or a partial amputation cannot be standardised.
It requires technique and depends on the patient’s characteristics:
- Is it a man or a woman?
- Would the woman accept permanent makeup?
- Does the man wear a beard or moustache? Since when? How would it look if he shaved after the pigment is applied?
This is why Laboratoires BIOTIC Phocea strongly encourages you to follow Corrective Micropigmentation training.
The Pro’s recommendations:
Thoroughly analyse the request: careful, a request for natural pigmentation does not mean the same thing in restorative micropigmentation as in natural makeup:
- A woman who wants “natural” permanent makeup wants it to be understated in form and colour,
- A woman who wants “natural” restorative pigmentation wants the defect to disappear, without changing the shape or colour of her lips.
- Be very careful with men.
