FAQ about Permanent makeup

  • What exactly is permanent makeup?

    Permanent cosmetics are a safe, natural alternative to the hassle of putting on makeup every day. This state-of-the-art technique is accomplished via intradermal micropigmentation. When done by an experienced technician, this makeup looks significantly more natural than conventional cosmetics.

  • Is permanent makeup really safe?

    Yes, it is safe when you work with a trained and licensed technician. Reputable professionals utilize disposable, single-use application systems and safe, gentle pigments.

  • Is it painful?

    Before cosmetic tattooing, you'll receive a topical anesthetic that will ensure your comfort. If anything, you might feel a tickling sensation as the coloring is applied.

  • Does it look fake?

    Not at all. These long-lasting cosmetics are designed to provide a more natural look than traditional makeup. In fact, no one will know that you have permanent makeup unless you tell them.

  • What is the healing process?

    You'll need to apply a special ointment to your procedure site for five to seven days following application. Otherwise, you should be able to resume your normal activities as soon as your appointment is done.

  • How many appointments will I need?

    Most clients need just one or two appointments to achieve their target look.

  • How should I choose my makeup technician?

    Research a potential technician by evaluating their portfolio and asking friends and family for recommendations. Ask technicians where they were trained and if they hold any special certifications.

  • How long will my appointment take?

    Initial appointments generally take 90 minute to two hours. Follow-up appointments to perfect your look take about an hour.

  • Do I have options when it comes to makeup colors?

    Yes. You can choose from a wide variety of color options that can be lightened or darkened according to your preferences. If you're unsure of the color you'd like to use, talk with your technician. Learning how to choose the right colors is an integral part of any aesthetic professional's training.

  • I have sensitive eyes. Will permanent makeup work for me?

    It probably will. Many women with sensitive skin choose permanent cosmetics as an alternate to the eye irritation caused by traditional cosmetics. If you have very sensitive skin, an initial patch test can rule out allergies.

  • What are my options if I don't like the results?

    It's essential to remember that permanent makeup is true to its name. Having the results corrected if you don't like them can be costly and time consuming. Spend time choosing the right technician for your needs.

  • Does permanent makeup last a lifetime?

    Not entirely. Permanent cosmetics last a lifetime in the sense that you'll always have a marking on your skin, but the pigments will fade over time. This can be an advantage as your makeup will age with you.

What Is Permanent Makeup

Micropigmentation  Process

Imagine rolling out of bed and instantly having a fresh face full of vibrant color. Imagine never having to feel self-conscious about your thin eyebrows or lips. Imagine going camping or to the gym and not having to worry about your makeup smearing or running. Now, imagine that all of this is not only possible, but is permanent!

Permanent makeup is a growing sensation perfect for people who are allergic to even the most sensitive makeup, people with medical conditions that cause unsteady hands, such as rheumatoid arthritis or stroke which makes it difficult to apply traditional makeup, and people who simply have a busy lifestyle who would enjoy the ease of getting ready without bothering with applying makeup. When applied correctly and safely by a properly trained professional, permanent makeup can offer freedom to those who wish to look and feel their best with minimal effort.

Permanent makeup is applied through a process called micropigmentation. Organic pigmentation is embedded under the skin with a very thin needle that is attached to a hand-held device that is used by the trained professional. Most clients have little to no pain during the procedure! Your trained professional can achieve permanent blush to the cheeks, eyeliner that will never run when you cry or sweat, and even 3D hair-strokes to the brow line, mimicking perfectly plucked, life-like and full eyebrows.

People who suffer from alopecia, or spotty hair loss, can greatly benefit by the micropigmentation technique which makes the spots softer looking and less noticeable. Permanent makeup also benefits those who have oily skin that causes traditional makeup to smudge, smear and wear off prematurely.
