About Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup procedures are performed using traditional tattoo or coil machines, the pen or rotary machine and the non-machine or hand method. After an initial consultation, the technician will apply the pigment to the desired area. Permanent cosmetics may required at least one or more follow up visits for adjusting the shape and color or density of the pigment. Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the upper dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. As with any tattoo, fading can occur, requiring periodic maintenance, color re-enhancement or color re-freshing. It is important to consider your personal desires carefully when selecting a potential permanent cosmetic makeup technician.
