   WHAT IS PERMANENT COSMETIC MAKEUP?

      The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “Micropigmentation” or ‘Dermagraphics”. The process involves implanting sterile pigments (color) into the dermal layer of the skin. Custom colors are selected to compliment your skin tone, hair and eyes. Permanent cosmetic makeup is a safe nonsurgical procedure, which can restore or improve on the natural youthful color that nature gave you and time has
faded.

    WHAT TYPE OF PERMANENT COSMETIC PROCEDURES CAN BE DONE?

 
Permanent cosmetic procedures can be very subtle or dramatic depending on your desire. Options include:

   Eyebrows—Brows can be shaded, reshaped or recreated.
   Eyelash enhancement—Pigment is placed between the lashes only for a natural looking enhancement of the eves and lashes.
   Eyeliner—Liner may include an eyelash enhancement and also includes the area lust above the lashes for a more dramatic look.
   Lip Liner—Color to the lip line adds more definition to the lip, may correct uneven textures or create more fullness and it will not ‘wick’ through surrounding creases as topical liners and lipsticks do.
   Full Lip Color—This procedure includes lip liner and adds color throughout the lip.
   Beauty Marks—These can add interest to the face or be used as camouflage for a small scar.
   Scar Camouflage—Color is added to soften & blend the white (hypopigmentation) of a scar with surrounding skin.
   Areola Restoration—Restoration, balance or enhance­ment of color on grafted or non-grafted areolas after breast reconstruction.
  _______________________________________    WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM PERMANENT COSMETIC  MAKEUP?

*   Anyone, who desires a soft natural enhancement to their appearance.
*   People who are active with children, careers or athletics who do not want to spend time reapplying makeup.
*   Those with poor eyesight or unsteady hands.
*   Women with allergies to conventional cosmetics
   People with hair or pigment loss due to injury, surgery, vitiligo or alopecia.
   Men desiring to replace color from hair loss, graying or trauma. 

Regardless of the reason for application, permanent cosmetics can be the solution to give you permanent confidence in your appearance..

  ARE PERMANENT COSMETICS REALLY PERMANENT?

  These procedures are considered permanent because the pigments are implanted into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. Some fading may occur and color may be re-enhanced in a maintenance visit for less than the fee for the original service.  Re-enhancement may be needed every six months to three years.  The amount and length of time that color will last depends on factors such as age, skin type, condition of skin as well as the general health and medication regime of the client.

     IS IT PAINFUL?   

The sensation of micropigment implantation varies according to the individual’s pain threshold.  Topical anesthetics are used and nerve blocks (for the lip procedure) are available by request from the supervising physician for an additional fee.  Some clients report a “tweezing” or vibration sensation”. Most clients report that the benefits of permanent cosmetics far outweigh any minor discomfort that they may experience.

  HOW LONG DOES EACH PROCEDURE TAKE? 

Consultations last approximately 30 minutes. During this visit, questions regarding procedures are answered, a health history is collected, and complimentary colors are chosen.  Brows or lip color may be drawn on with a topical makeup pencil. To better determine the final placement of permanent color and to allow the client to think over any possible changes before the procedure.  For camouflage work, a patch test for color accuracy may be done.  A patch test for allergies would also be done at this time.  Finally, pre and post procedure considerations would also be discussed.
 Initial permanent cosmetic procedures take approximately 1 ˝ to 2 hours.  Touches up procedures usually require less time.  Camouflage work can take more time depending on the size of the area to be treated.

   ARE THERE ANY AFTER EFFECTS?

 
 
  There is usually some swelling and tenderness of the areas treated.  The eyebrow area generally, swells less than eyes and lips.  Swelling and sometimes a slight bruising will continue for 24-72 hours after the procedure.   Immediately after the procedure the color will appear much darker.  The third to fifth day after, flaking will occur then the softened color underneath will be revealed.  Although the surface of the skin may appear healed in 7-10 days, touch ups are not recommended for 4-8 weeks to allow adequate time for complete tissue healing.
