Permanent makeup is a safe, nonsurgical option for improving the appearance of your lips, eyebrows, or eyes. Not only can permanent makeup save you time during your morning makeup routine, it can also save you money, as you will not have to buy as many makeup products to achieve the look you want.
The process of applying permanent makeup is similar to that of applying a tattoo. Prior to your treatment, you will receive a patch test on your skin to ensure that you will not have an allergic reaction to the pigment that is used. Then, if no reaction occurs, you will choose the color based on advice and suggestions from your makeup artist. Your color will be custom blended to compliment your hair, skin, and eye color.
Using a special needle, the technician will apply the pigment into the top layer of skin at the chosen treatment area. The needle releases droplets of pigment into the skin to help improve the appearance of the chosen area.
A touch-up treatment is recommended 4-8 weeks after your first treatment. This is to make any final adjustments or additions to ensure that you receive perfect results.
There are many reasons why an individual may opt for permanent makeup. Those who live an active lifestyle and would like to save time and money on makeup products can often benefit, as well as those with allergies to conventional cosmetics. Also, those who wear contact lenses may opt for permanent makeup if traditional eye makeup irritates their eyes.

Before your permanent makeup procedure, we will use a topical anesthetic to numb the area, ensuring you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment.
Following your permanent makeup treatment, it can take about three weeks for the color to fade to its long-term shade. You may experience slight redness and swelling the day of and the day after the treatment. The color may appear dark and shiny for the first week, and the surrounding tissue will be swollen and pink. Cold compresses can help to reduce swelling, and antibiotic ointment should be used to prevent infection. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight to the treatment area for several weeks to ensure optimal results.
There is typically no downtime associated with this treatment, and you won't have to take any time off your normal activities (aside from avoiding sunlight) after undergoing the treatment.
