What exactly is Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent Cosmetic Makeup is a revolutionary new procedure of applying micro insertions of natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This premier state of the art technique is medically developed and specifically designed for a completely safe, and virtually painless, procedure. Micropigmentation is a separate specialty within the field of tattooing.
Who Benefits from Permanent Cosmetics?
- Busy women with little time to apply makeup.
- People with allergies to conventional make-up and/or seasonal allergies.
- Those physically or visually incapable of applying makeup, or those with unsteady hands.
- Athletic people and those with oily skin who tend to shed makeup easily.
- Women who wish to look more rested and beautiful in the morning and late evening.
- Women who have sparse or light lashes, and little or no brow hair.
- It is important to discuss your lifestyle and expectations with your technician prior to having permanent cosmetics.
Do I decide the Placement of the Pigments/Color, are Pigments Safe?
Of course. You will be fully aware prior to the procedure as to where I am going to implant the pigments. You will also wear your makeup as you normally do so that we can choose coordinating colors. Pigments used in permanent cosmetics have an extensive record of safety. Used in both the medical and artistic fields for over 20 years, their safety is undisputed.
Will a follow-up appointment be necessary?
At your initial procedure the pigments will be implanted sparingly. During the healing process a large amount of your color will be lost as it migrates into the skin. A follow-up procedure in 4 to 5 weeks is a must. This follow-up procedure fine-tunes your makeup.
Is the Procedure Safe?
Your safety and comfort are my highest concern. Permanent cosmetics are applied using the highest sanitation and sterilization standards available. Sterile, single-use needles are used and properly disposed of after each client. Your artist is gloved at all times.
Is this Procedure Painful?
Although everyone’s pain sensitivity varies, the application of permanent makeup involves minor discomfort. Topical anesthetics are used prior to and during the procedure.
What is involved in Recovery?
In most cases there will be slight swelling and redness of the skin which will subside quickly, usually overnight. You may resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.
