Frequently Asked Questions

What is permanent make up?

This medically developed procedure is a method of implanting color pigments into the skin to create a lasting cosmetic effect.

Why use permanent make up?

  • Permanent make up gives you the freedom to swim, exercise, shower, and even cry – without worrying about your make up smearing or coming off. It can also save you time in your daily routine.
  • Permanent make up allows you the option to enhance your natural features or to create a dramatic effect. The choice is yours!
  • Permanent make up is perfect for the woman who is allergic to standard cosmetics on the market.
  • It is ideal for women with poor eyesight – a polished look without the daily hassle.
  • It is ideal for cancer or thyroid patients.

What can permanent make up do for me?

Eyebrows: Permanent eyebrows will make the brows look fuller and more natural, and add the perfect balance to your face. You will never need to use brow pencil again! Permanent make up can be applied in the hair stroke or solid technique. 

Eyeliner: Eyeliner is applied in the lash line to enhance your eyelashes and to make your eyes stand out. You choose from a natural look or a dramatic look.

Lips and lip liner: Permanent lipstick and lip liner are available in almost any color. You can enhance the shape of your lips, enlarge or reduce the appearance of your lips. Colors can be custom blended. Lip color will fade up to 70% after the first time and some people may not see lip color at all depending on the color that they choose. Lips may have to be done more than once. To see a lot of color in the final result you may want to choose a darker color.

How long does permanent make up last?

The treatment is permanent. It will not wash off. However it will soften with age, sun, skin peel, cleansing lotions and will sometimes need to be re-touched. A retouch will depend on each individual person to how soon they will need to be done.

How long does it take?

Most sessions take one to two hours. Eyebrow applications may take longer- due to the design time. A retouch (which is included in the original fee) will take one half hour – one hour.

Does it hurt?

A topical numbing cream is applied. It is important that you do NOT use an injection to numb the area as this will cause the pigment to migrate in the skin. Comfort levels vary from person to person.

Could I have an allergic reaction?

There is very little chance of an allergic reaction, the pigments that are used are safe and approved for use on the face. A patch test is administered before proceeding.

Is it safe?

Yes, this procedure is done under strict sterilization rules.

Can I go back to work the same day?

Yes, most people do return to work the same day. You may have swelling or puffiness. Your eyes will look like you had a good cry after the eyeliner. The lips stay swollen for about three days. The eyebrows have very little swelling. Bruising and swelling may occur differently in each individual; this may last 3-5 days. The intensity of the color will be about 50% darker in the first week or two. Instructions will be given to care for your permanent make up following the procedure.

Is it safe?

Yes, this procedure is done under strict sterilization rules.
