What is Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing/Permanent Cosmetics/PMU?

Permanent Cosmetics are often referred to as Permanent Makeup (PMU) or Micropigmentation. In principle, color pigments are inserted into the skin through the needle to emulate everyday cosmetic makeup, naturally enhancing facial features. However, recent PMU has been utilized for various purposes such as for cancer patients with damaged skin/tissue. Color theory helps match and mix skin-colored pigments, which is a key element for such a treatment. The most common PMU consists of eyelash enhancement, eyeliners, eyebrows, scalp hair simulation, full lip color and liner, skin needling, scar relaxation, areola repigmentation, and corrective pigment camouflage.
To ensure safety and standard practices for patient care, a PMU professional license and practice works under State Board such as the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR, Virginia), which requires students to complete a minimum 200-hour state-licensed school for training and pass an examination by DPOR.
The PMU industry enjoys a high growth rate with high value-added per hour. As the foundation of Aesthetics Health Academy, we are part of a global movement.

Fundamental Training

Please be aware that not all states or counties require formal fundamental training or licensing; however those that do require a minimum of 200 basic hours (most insurance companies require a basic fundamental course of 200 or more hours), which is important to complete.
Microblading/Microstroking is in fact tattooing and therefore practitioners are required to have a tattoo license and tattoo permit and insurance for their business. 2-3 day micro blading courses are advanced training and should not be taken without a basic fundamental course. Please consider this before taking a course like this, as your state/county may prohibit you from practicing this technique. You may not be able to find an insurance company to insure you without basic fundamentals.
Fundamentals do not require any previous experience. You will be taught everything you need as a foundation for a career in Permanent Cosmetics.
