How would you like to wakeup every morning with perfectly applied makeup? Or never have to worry about smudging eyeliner or reapplying lipstick? Permanent cosmetics are the perfect solution for active women looking for a natural, low maintenance look.
Permanent cosmetics involves the application of pigment into the superficial skin layer of the eyebrows, eyelids, and lips. Recovery time is minimal and the improvement in coloration results in a natural and more youthful appearance. The initial treatment provides most of the desired coloration. A second treatment is usually scheduled in one to two months to blend the color evenly.
On the initial visit, the permanent cosmetics professional will discuss the areas to be treated and explain the choices of pigment color and placement. The expected recovery time and appearance after treatment will be reviewed.
A topical anesthetic cream is applied to the areas for about fifteen minutes prior to applying the pigment. A slight stinging may be felt initially but soon lessens when additional anesthetic is applied.
There will be some redness, swelling, and bruising immediately after the procedure, which will last for several days. An ointment can be applied to the eyebrows and eyelids to minimize crusting. For the lips, a lip balm is recommended to moisturize the treated area.
Is the procedure safe?
Permanent cosmetics are applied using standard medical sterilization methods in order to prevent infections. Sterile, single use instrument tips are used with every client. The pigments are composed of iron oxide, which has an extensive record of safety.
How long will the procedure take?
Eyebrows and eyelids take about two hours each. Lip pigmentation requires about two hours. The second application takes less time than the initial procedure.
