What kinds of pigments are there?
 

PMU pigments fall into two categories:  Inorganic and Organic.

 

ORGANIC PIGMENTS

organic pigments are much brighter, richer, luminous and intense

more translucent 

better colour retention

more vibrant and easier to implant

less resistant to sunlight, humidity and chemicals

when you want to wash organic pigment of your skin its very hard  because they stain a lot

their are less stable but much easier to remove with laser
the most important is they are shorter lasting (fading faster)

 

INORGANIC PIGMENTS

more matte and opaque colours

little bit more difficult to implant

more stable ( end the most used element is Iron)

easy to wash from skin

harder to remove with laser

the most important longer lasting (fading slower)

What does that mean for me?

All brown pigments are actually made up of three colors: BLACK, YELLOW, RED - all in different levels depending on the color chosen.

  • ORGANIC PIGMENTS: Our bodies tend to metabolize and process the RED & YELLOW more quickly. And the BLACK tends to hang around longer before fading. This can result in a bluish tone around touchup time.

  • INORGANIC PIGMENTS: Our bodies tend to metabolize and process the BLACK & YELLOW more quickly. And the RED tends to hang around longer before fading. This can result in a pink tone around touchup time.

Is this normal?

Yes, this is completely normal and happens to everyone at some point. Whether it be 9 months or 9 years. When you come in for your touchup we replace the pigment that has naturally faded and this neutralizes the unwanted tone.
