Permanent Make up F.A.Q

Is the procedure safe?

Strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are followed in accordance with the CDC (Center For Disease Control) and Florida Health Department. Single use, disposable needles are used with each application. Pigments are all made from approved compounds, and most are mixed specifically for permanent cosmetic use.

Is the procedure painful?

There are different methods available to help with pain management, including various topical anesthetic ointments. There may be some discomfort, although each individual's tolerance level is different. Steps are taken to make sure the client is as comfortable as possible.

What if I don't like it?

Remember, although the procedures are considered permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing color and shape. Colors will appear darker immediately following the procedure but will soften and lighten during the healing process. Based on the way you currently wear your makeup, we will work to create your desired look. Any necessary additions or changes can be done on your follow-up visit.

What is "Permanent Cosmetics"?

Permanent Cosmetics, 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

How long does each procedure take?

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 - 2 hours for eyeliner, eyebrows or lipliner.

2 + hours for full lip color.

How many appointments will be necessary?

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 muchtime as the initial procedure.

There is $20 charge for touch up.

What will I look like post procedure?

Your permanent makeup will definitely look darker and heavier than you want. There can also be some unevenness, but this is temporary. This is because of 3 things.

  1. Large amounts of pigment are intentionally implanted in order to acquire enough color after the healing process. During the next 3-4 days, your makeup will go through changes of exfoliation and will peel and fade to a soft shade. It is not uncommon to go 70% lighter.
  2. Immediately after tattooing, the skin goes through a process of oxidation . This is caused by wet pigments' exposure to air. This gives the work a darker appearance. It lighten as it dries into the skin. It is very important that the client follow all instructions given to insure a successful result. I always advise clients to bring sunglasses or a hat to bring to ensure privacy and anonymity
  3. There is immediate swelling and tenderness thereby causing a more darker and wider appearance. This subsides within 12 hours. Apply the neosporin . Again, patience is a virtue. Within 4-6 days, your tattoo will peel and reveal a much softer and lighter shade. You might even complain that there is not enough color. Do not make a judgment of the color until you are fully healed. believe it or not, the color comes back and you will see a much more demure version of your original tattoo.

How long will my permanent makeup last?

All tattoos fade with time and expose to the elements. It’s inevitable. Generally, your permanent makeup should last about 2-5 yrs. However, everyone has different skin and heal in differently. The darker the tattoo is, the less time it will take to fade. Your skin naturally exfoliates to regenerate new skin for protection. During this process, some pigment may slough. Using alpha hydroxy acids such as Vitamin A,C,E can strip the pigment over long use also. Swimming in salt water and chlorine water acts a bleach to fade the makeup too. The elements both natural and man-made will also determine how long the permanent makeup will stay. Continuous time exposure to the sun will not only fade the tattoo it can take it out almost completely.
