FAQ

Q: What is "Permanent Makeup"?

A: Permanent Makeup, also referred to as micro-pigmentation, cosmetic tattooing or dermal-pigmentation is a process whereby completely natural pigments are implanted beneath the epidermis (top layer of skin), into the dermal layer (second layer of skin), by micro insertion. This technique has been medically developed and specifically designed for a safe permanent application.

The pigments used have been specially formulated for cosmetic application.

Not to be compared with traditional tattooing, in which permanent skin dyes and inks are placed into the skin.

Q: What are the advantages of Permanent Makeup?

A: Permanent makeup looks more natural than the shiny, waxy, appearance of topical makeup and no one will be able to tell that it is permanent. You will no longer have to worry about smudging, reapplying, or being caught without makeup. Permanent makeup will allow you to look perfect all the time as well as save you time and money.

Q: Does the procedure hurt?

A: This may vary according to each individual's pain threshold, however, topical anesthetics are used to numb the area and minimize discomfort. Most people describe a mild pricking sensation.

Q: Is it safe?

A: Allergic reactions to permanent makeup procedures are extremely rare. The cosmetic pigments are made from completely natural ingredients,and disposable sterile needles and surgical gloves are used for each procedure. However, micro-pigmentation is a skin invasive procedure.It is extremely important to consult an experienced professional technician who is licensed, qualified and conscientious.

Q: How long does each procedure take?

A: Times vary according to the individual's sensitivity, hydration, density, elasticity, and overall condition of the skin.

Allowing time for anesthetics to take effect, implanting of the pigment,and some final fine tuning of the procedure, average time for the initial visit is as follows:

  • 1 + hours for eyeliner
  • 1-2 hours for eyebrows or lipliner
  • 2 + hours for full lip color

Q: How many appointments will be necessary?

A: Four to six weeks after the initial application, a follow-up visit may be required to perfect the lines or color. This visit does not require as much time as the initial procedure. There is no additional charge for this visit.

Q: Can I still wear traditional makeup over the Permanent cosmetics?

A: Permanent cosmetics are designed to enhance your natural beauty. Wearing additional cosmetics is a personal choice.

Q: Can I have Permanent Makeup if I am allergic to regular make-up?

A: The client who is allergic to traditional facial makeup is the perfect candidate for a permanent makeup procedure. We can patch test you in the area of the desired procedure 6-8 weeks prior the initial procedure.

Q: How many colors are there to choose from?

A: There are endless possibilities! We can costume blend any desired color!
It is best to bring in your favorite makeup and we will costume blend for the best match.

Q: How long does Permanent Makeup last?

A: Permanent makeup lasts anywhere from 3-10 years. A variety of factors influence the longevity of Permanent Cosmetics. Ultra-violet exposure from sun or tanning booths, various drugs and excessively dry skin are all factors that may affect permanent cosmetics. Alpha- hydroxy, Retin-A and glycolic acid like fruit acids, which are commonly found in some toners, cleansers and moisturizers (please read the labels) must be kept away from treated areas. These substances slough away top layers of the skin and eventually the layer of skin that the pigment has been implanted into. Wearing sun block on eyebrows, sunglasses for eyeliner, and SPF on lips will greatly prolong the effective life of these procedures.

Q: Is it MRI safe?

A: We use only natural organic pigments that are MRI safe. Also because of the natural ingredients colors stay true, unlike pigments that contain iron oxide.

Q: Do we sterilize?

A: We use only new and disposable products for all of our procedures.

Q: What if I have a history of cold sores or fever blisters?

A: Before a lip procedure you will need to take an anti-viral drug such as Zovirax, Famvir, Valtrex or another prescribed by your Physician. Take the medication as prescribed for 1 week prior and one week after the lip procedure. If you don't, you most likely will have an eruption 3 to 5 days after application of a lip procedure and that will push the color out of the area of the sore.

Q: Do I have to take any precautions prior to a lip procedure?

If you don't, you most likely will have an eruption 3 to 5 days after application of a lip procedure and that will push the color out of the area of the sore.

A: It is usually wise to wait 6 months after you have discontinued use before scheduling an application.
