Permanent Makeup FAQ’s
Is this procedure painful?
Topical anesthetic creams/liquids are used to minimize discomfort. Most find little or no pain.
Do I have a choice of colors?
Definitely! There’s a wide spectrum of colors that you may choose from. You may even choose to have blended colors and two colors.
Do I have a choice in the placement of pigments?
Of course. You will be fully aware during the procedure, instructing the technician where you wish the implants to be located.
What is involved in recovery?
There will be slight swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color.
When will I need a touch-up?
Everyone is different. If you avoid using creams with glycolic acid and use sunscreens, you can expect 3-5 years.
Why is there loss of color over time?
a) Exposure to sunlight or UV light
b) Body breaks down foreign bodies when possible and eliminates them
c) Use of glycolics, Retin-A and other new products for wrinkle treatments are having an adverse effect on permanent makeup. Please avoid contact to your areas “Tattooed”.
