Questions

  1. What is Permanent Makeup?

    Also known as Permanent Cosmetics, Cosmetic Tattooing or Micropigmentation, is the art of implanting special pigments in the second layer of the skin, the dermis that are formulated from color additives approved for food, drugs and cosmetics use using tattooing techniques in concert with different tattoo devices. When done in natural tones, you can apply over them any regular makeup to change your look becuse the pigment will be under the skin, you can apply over, any regular makeup to be as dramatic as you want, but when those dissapear, you will have alway your beautiful permanent makeup making you looking your best!

  2. How to pick up an adequate technician to do my Permanent Cosmetics?

    As with any medical or cosmetic procedure your best option is to select a Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional that follows the Code of Ethics, State Health Regulations of his organization and stays updated with the continued education offered yearly by them. They must be licensed and insured and able to show these credentials upon request.

  3. How long does it last?

    Permanent Cosmetics is a multi-step process of building layers of pigments. The first time most people will need at least two (2) sessions. Ideally performed 4- 8 weeks apart from each other to perfect color and shape or fill in any pigment lost during the healing progress if necessary, for your complete satisfaction.

    The longevity of your procedures will depend in personal characteristics such as life style, skin type, health conditions, medications you are taking and the adherence to the short and long AFTER CARE instruction. As with any thing exposed to the ultraviolet radiation types A or B of the sun and environmental damages, pigments fade over time to a softer shade of the color applied. I see my clients any where from 1-3 years for evaluation and if necessary, to perform a “Refreshment or Buster Touch Up” to keep their investment looking its best, at half of the price that the original procedure was charged.

  4. Does it hurt?

    Pain sensation is very subjective and different for every person. During the whole process I use topical anesthetics to reduce any discomfort. Most people describe the sensation as the “tweezing hairs or tickling on the skin”. Most evaluate the sensation from the scale of 1-10 less that 4. Some even fall sleep.

  5. Who Benefits from Permanent Makeup?

    Any one that want to look refreshed, younger and allways its best even if working long hours or doing activities as dancing or sports and want to avoid makeup smudges. Clients must be over the age of 18 and not pregnant or nursing. Permanent makeup is long lasting investment taht will make the life happier and easier to those who:

    • Are experiencing signs of normal aging as thinning or dissapearance of hairs in eyebrows or eyelashes, loosing definition and thickness of Lips. The corner of eyebrows, eyelids and lips are “drooping”.
    • Have any medical or visual condition that interferes with the application of regular makeup.
    • Work or play sports and do not want tha bother of running, smearing makeup.Just want to look younger/ refreshed all day, without or even after any plastic surgery procedure.
  6. What to expect after the procedure?

    You will experience some degree of swelling and inflammation that will subside in a few days.

    Pigment will look bolder and thicker during the healing process (5-10 days). After, may fade up to 30%, more for lip procedures; as you are going to see the pigments throughout a renewed epidermal layer with not pigments on it. Proper implanted pigments are deposited in the dermis (second skin layer).

    As you heal a soft crust may appear and will fall by itself in 3-7 days. Do not pick as it may result in lost of pigment that can be replaced at the Touch Up or second visit.
