Permanent Makeup


Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, eyelids and eyebrows.  The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as "micropigmentation", "micropigment implantation" or "dermagraphics".

Permanent cosmetics procedures are performed using various methods, including the traditional tattoo or coil machines, the pen or rotary machine and the non-machine or hand method. The process includes an initial consultation, then application of pigment, and at least one or more follow up visits for adjusting the shape and color or density of the pigment.

Is Getting Permanent Makeup Painful?

Permanent makeup, permanent cosmetics, micropigmentation, and “semi” permanent makeup are the same procedure: a cosmetic tattoo. And, as such, a cosmetic tattoo utilizes needles to tattoo specialized pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. There is some discomfort associated with permanent makeup but when performed by a proficient technician, the discomfort should be minimal. People are individual and unique and have different tolerance to discomfort. Topical anesthetics are available for technicians and are very effective. Topical anesthetics used in permanent makeup are commonly formulated with lidocaine, tetracaine, benzociane and small amounts (in some) of epinephrine. The most challenging procedure is the eyelids.

Is permanent makeup really permanent?

Permanent makeup procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted in the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, like all tattoos, fading can and does occur, so periodic color refreshing is needed.

How long does each procedure take?

The initial procedure will generally take up to 2½ hours. Touch-up procedures will take less time.
