Permanent Make-Up

What is a Permanent Make-Up?
Permanent MakeUp is a revolutionary method of applying natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This state of the art technique is medically proven and specifically designed to be completely safe. Permanent makeup is used for a variety of permanent cosmetic enhancements such as permanent eyebrows, eyeliner and lip liner.
Other permanent cosmetic procedures include scar camaflague areola restoration, cleft lip and more. Micro-pigmentation, semi-permanent make up, cosmetic tattooing and permanent cosmetic enhancement are all the same names for this proceedure. This treatment is used to enhance the eyes, eyebrows, lips and skin using natural pigmentation to permanently apply a natural looking and subtle finish to the skin.
This is medically proven to be safe and effective.

Is Permanent Make-Up “Permanent”?
Your permanent cosmetic make-up procedure depends upon the technician, the products used for the application, how deep the cosmetic tattoo was placed into the skin, how well you take care of the procedural area while it is healing, and whether or not you use a total sun block after the procedure area has completely healed. All these factors will determine how long the procedure will last. Color enhancers are suggested “as needed” to keep the procedure looking ‘fresh and new’.
Can I have Permanent Make-Up if I am allergic to regular make-up?
The client who is allergic to traditional make-up is usually allergic to the fillers, binders, preservatives and fragrances in that make-up. In permanent make-up, we use iron oxides and lakes that are pure and are combined with rewetting agents. Mineral make-up is made up of the same ingredients that we use, and has been used, for decades. These ingredients are innocuous and non-reactive, making them perfect for permanent cosmetic procedures.
What will I look like immediately following my Procedure?
Your procedure area may be slightly swollen and irritated. This is called a “wheal and flare” reaction. The area may also be darker for a few days while it is healing because of the lymph and blood droplets that may have been brought to the surface during your application. While your procedure area is healing, it must go through three phases before you will experience your final results. The procedure area must first heal, peel and fade. Final results may take 4-8 weeks to completely heal.
Is this Procedure Safe?
Permanent cosmetic procedures are safe if the technician has had a proper education. Single use, sterile needles and machine parts are used for each client and then properly disposed of.
How do I care for my “NEW” Permanent Make-Up procedure?
After completion, you will receive a post-treatment care instructional sheet. The overall success of your procedure is contingent upon you following these instructions. A follow-up visit will be scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks from your initial application. This is to “fine tune” and touch-up any area of the skin that may have expelled the pigment.
Do I have to take any precautions prior to a Lip Procedure?
If you have ever had a cold sore or fever blister, you must take an antiviral pre-procedure. Herpetic outbreaks usually occur on the 3rd day post-procedure, and taking antivirals will lessen your chance of an outbreak. If you do experience a herpetic outbreak, you may lose the implanted pigment color in the area of the outbreak.
