Permanent Make-Up

Never be caught without make-up again.

Permanent make-up, also called cosmetic tattooing, is the process of depositing color molecules through the epidermis into the dermal layer of the skin. While the molecules remain in the skin permanently, permanent make-up does experience varying degrees of lightening over time, from a gentle softening to a fading that would require an occasional touchup. These procedures are greatly affected by exposure to the sun.

A Permanent Cosmetic treatment is a non-surgical procedure known as Micropigmentation. Tiny droplets of custom blended colors are skillfully deposited into the dermal layer of the skin to simulate natural looking or well-defined makeup.

Custom blended pigments are gently deposited into your skin and for the most natural look, creating dimension and depth of color. .

The exact colors and shapes you desire, alternatives, and results you can expect will be fully discussed during your consultation.

The strictest sanitation and safety standards are followed by using only disposable tools and fresh pigments. Also, all pigments are hypo-allergenic containing no fragrances, emollients or other irritants.



Does it hurt?

Everyone's tolerance level to discomfort is different. Topical anesthetics are applied prior to performing permanent make-up to make you comfortable during the treatment. Some clients feel a slight prickly sensation. For permanent lip color, often a dental block may be offered to numb the lips to make the permanent cosmetic application painless. Delicate or sensitive areas may become slightly red and or swollen from the treatment; therefore it is recommended not to have social plans following the same day the permanent make-up is applied.

How long does it take?

Depending on the procedure, 11/2 to 2 hours should be allotted. A 4 to 6 week follow-up visit is required for evaluation for touch-up and to ensure satisfaction.

Permanent make-up is the perfect solution. Giving a natural, go anywhere look whether you want to accentuate your eyes, lips or eyebrows. Permanent make-up provides a no-fuss look that can be supplemented with regular cosmetics. During your consultation, color selection and the look desired are discussed.
