What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as "micro-pigmentation" or "Intra-dermal cosmetics."
The cosmetic implantation technique deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis to restore natural color and stimulate conventional makeup by machine method, which lasts about three to eight years or even a lifetime, depending on skin type, colors used and other factors which will de discussed at the consultation.
Lashes can be made to look darker and fuller. Missing/damaged and or badly shaped brows can be given a more youthful appearance. Finally, lips which have thinned or that have lost their blush color can be re-created to look fuller and more vibrant. On younger clients, permanent makeup adds a professional polish and aids in the dress for success look. On older clients, permanent makeup can take years off a face.

Loss of eyebrows or ill-shaped brows can make you look aged or drawn out. Permanent eyebrows look more natural than pencil and can give back youth and add definition to the face. Hair simulation can mimic the appearance of real brows. This is especially effective for alopecia sufferers. You can swim, play tennis, and wake up without having to re-do your eyebrows. Brows will be cleaned and penciled to the desired shape before the procedure.
This application is great for sparse brows. Soft shadowing and hair strokes are applied under existing brows. It makes it easier for eyebrow tweezing and waxing…and no FUSS with a pencil.
Permanent eyeliner can bring out a more beautiful, defined eye by opening or lifting the eyes. You can go with a bold, defined line; a thin line; or even a smudged look. Ophthalmologists recommend permanent eyeliner to their patients who are allergic to conventional makeup. Say goodbye to runny eyeliner!
This works for both men and woman. Achieve an enhanced look by shadowing with dots or mimicking eyelashes by implanting soft pigment in between the bed of lashes. The pigment is virtually undetectable. Eyelash enhancement makes lashes appear thicker and fuller. This procedure takes minutes after a short preparation time. Many movie stars have this procedure done such as Dustin Hoffmann, Al Pacino and Sylvester Stalone.
As one ages, there is loss of color and definition in the lips. Or you might think your lips are too small. With permanent lip liner, lips can be redefined, made slightly larger, and with a more attractive shape. Your lipstick will not bleed anymore. You can swim, play tennis, and wake up with the custom blend of color that is right for you. An anesthetic (dental) block is optional and given by a plastic surgeon on the premises.
Full Lip Color
Fill in your lips with full lip color highlighting a more solid natural appearance. Soft pink gives you the soft child-like color for something less noticeable but still adds more color and definition. For men, this application can camouflage scars or give more color back.
Unwanted scars can be camouflaged by filling in the area with a close match to the surrounding skin. This will diminish the appearance of scars, but not completely get rid of it. This takes a few sessions and is not good for keyloided or raised scars. (i.e. face lift scar, skin graft from skin cancer etc).
Small bald Spots or Slightly Receding Hair Line
This application is performed by adding color between hair strands with shadowing and hair strokes. This color lasts less time due to constant washing of hair. Maintenance is required.
Areolas and nipple can be created or restored for breast cancer patients who have undergone a mastectomy. Very realistic areolas can be created. Surrounding scars from surgery can also be camouflaged after breast augmentation (reduction or lift) and missing or ill shaped nipples can be reformed or created. Some clients add a little color enhancement to make the areolas appear larger.
There is little or no down time and after care instructions are given the day of the procedure.
All with your makeup on!
