Q:What is Permanent Make-up?

A: Permanent Make-up is a form of cosmetic tattoo. Extremely tiny amounts of natural pigments are inserted into dermal layer of the skin. The result is “ Permanent Makeup”----a desired cosmetic effect that last for years.

Q: Who is the candidate for Permanent Make-up?

A: Men and women who want to look their best all the time. Permanent Makeup is perfect for busy people who don't want to spend too much time each day applying makeup; for people who have light, sparse or half eyebrows; for people who have sensitive eyes or sparse lashes; for people who are physically active or who have oily skin that sheds makeup easily; and for persons with poorly defined or descending lips. Alopecia sufferers can benefit from the application of Permanent Makeup.

Q: May I choose the color and shape?

A: Absolutely. In fact, nothing is done without your approval. First, I work with you to design the most attractive style and shape based on your facial features and personal preference. Then, individualized color is mixed according to your skin tone. I have a large variety of colors from which all different shades of colors can be mixed.

Q: What if I want to change the color after the procedure?

A: No problem. Permanent makeup works to enhance your natural beauty so that you look good all the time. It is applied in the skin and you can always apply conventional makeup on the skin to create the desired look.

Q: Do the pigment pose allergy problems?

A: I use the best pigment which is hypoallergenic. There have been very few reactions to the pigments in Permanent Makeup history. Some doctors recommend that people with allergies have permanent cosmetic procedures because they can avoid cosmetic products that they are sensitive to. If your medical history shows you are highly allergic to many substances, a patch test may be suggested.

Q: Is It Painful?

A: Topical anesthetic ointment is very effective for our procedures. Everyone experiences pain differently. Most people experience some discomfort, from very mild to moderate, comparable to tweezing. This varies according to each individual’s pain threshold.

Q: How Long does the procedure take?

A: Times varies with each individual. It takes our experienced technician an average of one hour for each procedure.

Q: What’s the recovery time?

A: You can go back to work right after the procedure. But you will have some swelling on the lip and eyeliner. The color looks 20-30% stronger than the finial result. It takes about 3 to 4 weeks for the skin to completely heal.

Q: Is it safe?

A: I follow proper sterilization and sanitary guidelines which make me work completely safe. These guidelines include the following:

  • All needles are new and sterile for each client. I use only disposable needles and machine parts.
  • Gloves are new for each client and changed during the procedure when needed.
