Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is possible through a procedure called micropigmentation in which an organic pigment
is
embedded beneath the skin to add permanent color. The procedure involves the use of a hand-held device
that punctures the skin hundreds of times per minute
with a very thin needle and pushes the pigment into
the desired location.
 
In addition to defining the eyes, micropigmentation is used to enhance eyebrows and lips.

Permanent Cosmetics Q & A

Q. How long will it last?
A. The expected life of permanent cosmetics is 3 – 5 years at this time you will need a renewal touch-up. It does fade over time but sun exposure really speeds up the process. This is why sunscreen is recommended for the brows especially.

Q. Does it hurt?
A. You will feel a deep tickling sensation during the first pass. At this time liquid numbing is applied and deposits into the epidermis layer of the skin. At this point you will feel less pain than initially. However, it is a tattoo and the pigment is deposited with needles.

Q. How long is the procedure?
A. Permanent cosmetic appointments usually last 2 hours for one area (Eyebrows, Lip Liner, or Eyeliner). Full Lip Color may take 2 ½ hours. This includes paperwork, pre-numbing and ice application afterwards.

Q. Will it rub off if I sweat or go swimming?
A. Once the permanent make up area has healed (2 weeks post procedure) it will not rub off if you sweat or swim. The colored pigments are placed into the epidermis and skin heals over the pigments allowing its permanence.

Q. What is the difference between a Follow Up and a Renewal Touch Up?
A. A Follow Up is the touch up you might receive during your 6 week follow up appointment after the original procedure and there is no charge. Some people do not need a touch up, others do.
A Renewal Touch Up is the touch up you will need 2 – 5 years after the original procedure in order to keep your permanent makeup looking fresh.  There is a fee required for this procedure.

*However,
  Permanent Cosmetics are considered tattoos by industry standards.
