Are you wondering if Permanent Makeup is right for you?
It’s the perfect choice for anyone who: suffers from allergies and/or has chronically watery eyes, is allergic to cosmetics, leads an active or athletic lifestyle, has dexterity difficulties or arthritis making the application of cosmetics difficult, is unsatisfied with the symmetry of their lip line or eyebrows, has lost their eyebrows due to an autoimmune disease, alopecia, hypothyroidism or chemotherapy treatments or any other condition, or anyone who would simply like to save time and money!
Permanent Makeup Treatment Areas Include:
Eyeliner: Your eyes are the focal point of your face and they say a lot about you. You can choose to have just your upper or lower lids done, or both! Eyeliner can make you look younger, healthier and more “put together”. The problem with most eyeliners is that they smudge or wear off by the end of the day. Permanent Eyeliner can give you beautiful, comfortable and smudge-proof eyeliner everyday, even when you first wake up!
We can give you anything from a natural and subtle eyelash enhancement to full eyeliner tailored exactly to your specifications.
Eyebrows: Balanced, full and well-shaped brows are youthful and attractive. Years of over-tweezing and shaving can cause eyebrows to become sparse, uneven or unshapely. Are you tired of drawing on your eyebrows day after day? You can wake up with beautiful, full and feathery eyebrows everyday.
If you don’t have a shape in mine, don’t worry! Together we will analyze your bone structure and determine which brow shape will give you the most flattering and youthful appearance.
Lips: Your mouth is one of your face’s most prominent features. Do you find yourself reapplying lipstick several times throughout the day? With Permanent Lips your lip liner and color will stay fresh all day even after eating and drinking.
We can give you anything from a slight shape adjustment to a complete re-coloring of your existing lip color. The best part is, only you will know the difference!
- Wear old but comfortable clothing. Pigment may splatter during procedure.
- Allow 3-6 days for healing time; make sure outside chores are done as you don’t want to risk dirt and debris getting on your newly tattooed skin.
- Consider taking Benadryl or Melatonin before the procedure. Both may assists in reducing swelling and help you relax. However, you may need someone available to drive you home after the procedure if you are drowsy.
- Do not wear contact lenses during the procedure or 48 hours after the procedure. Remember to bring your glasses if necessary. (Not applicable to lip procedure).
- Bring sunglasses to wear home as your eyes may be light sensitive. (Not applicable to lip procedure).
- If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with your physician before scheduling permanent eyeliner procedure.
- Purchase a new tube of mascara to avoid infection.
- To help reduce swelling; cool, wet compresses may be used. Do not use ice or ice packs as they may freeze the skin and/or the pigment.
- Healing ointment will be provided to you. Use it 5-7 times a day up to 5 days. Keep the newly tattooed area moist with a thin layer of ointment.
- Expect the new tattoo to ooze a little, scab over then peel. Do not pick at the scab or encourage the peeling process by pulling on the skin; this may pull out pigment.
- If you think you are developing an infection or an allergic reaction discontinue using the healing ointment immediately and notify your permanent makeup technician and/or your physician.
- Avoid strenuous activity for 48 hours post procedure. Increased blood pressure and dilated blood vessels increases swelling and oozing.
- Avoid scrubbing, rubbing, wiping or scratching the area. Use patting or blotting motions only.
- Use a mild anti-bacterial soap if necessary. Avoid cleansers containing alcohol, glycolic acid or AHA/BHA’s (Alpha-Hydroxy and Beta-Hydroxy Acids)
- Do not expose the new tattoo to the full pressure of the shower.
- Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools, sea water and fresh water seven days post-procedure.
- Do not expose the new tattoo to the sun or tanning beds until the outer healing is complete. Use of SPF after healing is complete will help prevent fading of your pigment.
- Do not apply topical cosmetics over the area until outer healing is complete.
- A touch-up may be necessary after your initial application. Your technician will advise you of the best time for a touch-up, typically within 4-6 weeks of the initial application dependent upon the clients age.
