What is Permanent Makeup?
[ Benefits ] [ Common FAQs ]
Permanent make-up is a non-surgical procedure where tiny droplets of custom colors are precisely deposited into the dermal layer of the skin. I use a hand application method. This is designed to provide maximum comfort, fast healing, little touch-ups, and the most natural look in the world.
Permanent make-up is not necessarily intended to replace cosmetics completely. The color is placed "in" your skin not "on" your skin. Therefore, a more natural, soft look results. If you would like a different look, you can apply as much additional make-up as you wish. Look like yourself, only naturally better.
Permanent make-up is ideal for all women, regardless of lifestyle! Imagine waking up with a presentable appearance. Your make-up will be permanent, waterproof, smudge-proof, hassle-free and always fresh!
What Permanent Cosmetics
Procedures Can Be Done?
Lips and Liner
Can be applied to give definition, correct uneven lips, or add fullness to lips. This procedure also helps prevent lipstick from bleeding and helps diminish the appearence of wrinkles. Color can be natural or vivid. Wear it alone or apply a different shade of lipstick over your permanent lip color, and you will find your lipstick color lasts longer.
Anyone who desires fullness or definition to their eyebrow will benefit from permanent eyebrows. From a few feathered strokes to a total brow recreation, I can give you the freedom to never use a brow pencil again. Wake up with your eyebrows on!

– How long does each procedure take?
The initial procedure usually takes from 1 to 2.5 hours. You can schedule for a follow-up visit to finalize the shape, color or density of the pigment, and to make sure that the procedure meets your expectations. These touch-ups are done 4-6 weeks later. Colors appear darker immediately following the procedure, but will soften and lighten during healing, which is approximately one week.
– How long does the color last?
Micropigmentation lasts a long time but not forever. As you become accustomed to your new make-up, it is not uncommon to want more. You may want to freshen your make-up every 1 to 5 years (this is done at a substantial discount). The darker the color, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin. Delicate, natural colors are oftentimes more vulnerable to the effects of the sun, swimming, medications, and breakdown by the body's own natural response.
– Is this procedure painful?
Although everyone's tolerence level is different, most people agree that permanent make-up procedures are far more comfortable than anticipated. Topical anesthetics are used during the treatment to provide comfort.
– Is it safe?
Your safety is of the utmost importance. Strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are followed in accordance with OSHA and the Center of Disease Control. Single use sterile needles are used with each application. We use only permanent make-up that is made in the USA. A patch test is available for those with sensitive skin.
– Do I have a choice of colors?
Definitely! There’s a wide spectrum of colors you may choose from.
– Do I have a choice in the placement of pigments?
Of course. During your consultation, design and pigment placement will be determined.
– What is involved in recovery?
There will be slight swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color.
