WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKE-UP?
Permanent Cosmetics is the art of implanting color to the eyelash line, lips, or eyebrow region in order to improve a client's appearance. This is a great solution for women who pencil their eyebrows, color and re-shape their lips every day, or simply for anyone who wears eyeliner! Women who don't wear makeup can enjoy the benefits of natural permanent cosmetics as well. Experienced professionals apply permanent makeup exactly the way you design it, using either a specially developed machine or gentle hand tools.
WHAT IS THE HAND METHOD?
Also known as the Softap method or Micro-pigmentation, this is the method where pigment is placed between the 5th and 6th layers of the epidermis (the 7 layers of outer skin). There is no electric machine involved and you are prepared with a good numbing agent. The only sensation involved is a “plucking “ feeling. All needles are new, used only once and disposed of. When this method is performed correctly, there is no risk of disease transmission because the single-use tools are sterile and disposable.
The “tapping method” creates very soft color. This method will not destroy the hair follicle and there is very little trauma to the skin and tissues. Healing time is 5-7 days and swelling is minimal; like you had cried.
The slight disadvantage of this method is that applications are usually done twice (about 30 days apart). The results will last 3-5 years with a little maintenance. After that, if not reapplied, it will fade away as the last layer of skin is pushed to the surface. BUT, when you are talking about brows and liner remember styles change. The last thing you want to do is to be wearing a 2015 style in 2025!
HOW DOES PERMANENT MAKE-UP LOOK?
The results of permanent cosmetics vary depending on the method used to implant the color, the colors used, and the environmental factors. The sun, facial cleansers, skin care products, and natural exfoliation will cause your permanent make up to fade faster than other forms of body art, as your face is more exposed to these environments.
DO I HAVE TO MAINTAIN PERMANENT MAKE-UP?
As a result of this, permanent cosmetics do require a small amount of maintenance to stay looking great. This does not mean that the procedure is not permanent! The pigment particles implanted on your first visit do remain in your skin, they just need to be touched up from time to time to look truly fabulous. Our colors are renowned as "the most beautiful and natural pigments."
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER GETTING PERMANENT MAKE-UP APPLIED?
Before any procedures, we spend ample time determining the exact measurements and placement of your permanent cosmetics so you get the precise look you desire.
A topical numbing agent is used for your comfort and safety. Each procedure will take approximately 90 minutes. Most clients are fine to drive home and experience little or no swelling or bruising is expected.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are life-saving but may leave you staring at yourself in the mirror wondering where your hair went. Other conditions such as thyroid disease and alopecia can also cause total hair loss. Then there are also accidental causes such a car accident or a facelift. Sometimes the hair will grow back, however, often times eyelashes and eyebrows do not. Eyelashes and eyebrows can be restored with permanent make up. Learn more..
