PERMANENT MAKEUP

Permanent Makeup is a cosmetic procedure of tattooing makeup to eliminate the need to remove and reapply makeup such as eyeliner and lipstick. The best possible color results can stay for many years, however, how much time is individual per person. Generally, two to five years is common. Included with each service is one touch-up session at no charge.

eyelash enhancement

Eyelash line enhancement is designed more to create an effect of darker eyelashes rather than a permanent layer of eyeliner, which gives more of a natural finished look. Eyelash line enhancement usually consists of just one thin line of pigment which is implanted between the eyelashes. This procedure will give the client the most natural look while enhancing lash thickness and create the softest, most natural look possible. This procedure is safe for those considering an eye lift in the future. 

Your procedure area may be slightly swollen and irritated and possibly darker for a few days while it is healing. Final results will be noticeable once the area has healed, peeled and faded. The healing process can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks.

Eye liner

Permanent Eyeliner creates natural looking defined eyes 24/7 no matter what you are doing. Pencil liners are inconvenient — smearing and smudging constantly — and impossible to use in any situation that involves water, sweating or humidity.  Eyeliner procedure takes approximately one hour. Medical grade numbing solution approved for permanent makeup procedure is used during procedure as needed  for comfort. Follow up is required in 4 weeks for touch up, and to ensure the client is happy with the color, thickness and shape of the liner.

Eye Shadow

Beautiful, natural looking, multi-dimensional looks can be created to look like natural eyeshadow. Permanent eyeshadow is intended to give you gentle tones that give you that every day make-up look that never smears or wears off. Multiple colors will be mixed and used to create soft customized look after complimentary consultation with the client. Because the skin on the eyelid is so delicate, some swelling may be experienced after procedure. Using Bromelain and Arnica helps to reduce swelling before and after procedure.

MICROBLADING

While it falls under the permanent makeup category, it is much less invasive than getting an actual tattoo since the pigment is not deeply inserted into the skin. It will fade over time simply because a much smaller amount of pigment is inserted into the skin as compared to fully/solidly filled eyebrow tattoos.

During the microblading process  a manual method of implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the epidermis is used to create the look of fuller brows. By utilizing the manual method and hand-held blade, we are able to achieve natural-looking results. Instead of outlining and completely filling in the outline of your brows with color (like permanent makeup brows), microblading allows for the placement of hair like strokes into the skin. Traditional tattooing uses needles on a rotary/coil machine to push ink 7 layers deep into the skin, microblading uses a manual blade and only targets 3 layers of skin. Because the pigment sits so superficially in the skin the strokes are sharp, crisp, and they mimic the look of real hair.

powder brows

With permanent makeup that involves the brows, usually a powder fill technique is used to make the brows look more dense and full. Powder Brows technique is popular in Hollywood among models and actresses due to the soft, natural look. Procedure will take one hour followed by a touch up in four weeks. Skin care product with after- care instruction will be provided to the patient.

Areola restoration

Areola Tattooing is a specialty area of medical tattooing that requires advanced education, training, and experience. These procedures help improve the appearance and self esteem of women who have undergone breast surgery. Areola tattooing techniques can “create” an areola after breast reconstruction, minimize the appearance of scars, or restore an areola to a more natural looking color and shape.

The areola plays a key role in the aesthetic look of a breast. Since a woman’s self-image can depend on the appearance of her breasts, a missing areola can be psychologically devastating. A woman can survive breast cancer after undergoing a mastectomy, and she can regain her figure with a breast reconstruction. However, she may not feel “complete” without an areola. A woman can become emotionally distressed from a scarred areola as well. Areola tattooing provides the “finishing touch” after breast surgery. Patients feel the tattooing process helps them during the last part of their recovery to look complete and feel “whole” and “normal” again.

Surgical procedures on the breast can create a scar if they require an incision at or around the edge of the areola. The scar that is left is called a peri-areolar scar. Some breast surgeries also create a vertical scar from the nipple through the lower portion of the breast that may need to be camouflaged. The following are breast surgical procedures that may create a scar: Breast Augmentation or Enlargement (Augmentation Mammoplasty); Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty); Breast Lift (Mastopexy); and Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia).

  • Areola-Nipple Complex Simulation: This procedure is for patients who have had breast reconstruction after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Cosmetic tattooing techniques and color pigments are used to create the appearance of an areola. For a unilateral mastectomy patient, this process helps the reconstructed breast to match the natural breast. For patients with bilateral breast reconstruction, both areolas are recreated. Areola complex simulation can be achieved with or without a nipple button created by the surgeon.
  • Areola Scar Camouflage: Many breast operations require one or more incisions at or around the edge of the areola which may produce scarring. The most common peri-areolar scars are from breast augmentation or reduction surgeries. A scar’s appearance can be softened, blended, or reduced by tattooing the areola scar using corrective pigment camouflage techniques.
  • Areola Size or Color Adjustment: The color of an areola can be darkened, balanced, or enhanced with tattooing. The process helps women who have discolored or lightened areolas after breastfeeding or patients who have had areola graft surgery. Patients with skin discoloration disorders (e.g. Vitiligo) can also benefit from areola tattooing. Also, individuals who have not had breast surgery but are self-conscious about their areola color or size (too light or too small) may choose this procedure to adjust their appearance.

Scar camouflage can usually be performed as soon as 6 months after surgery, but you should first ask your physician.

There is a complete assortment of hypo-allergenic areola pigment colors. We will work with you to select a color or colors that look the most natural for you. For scar camouflage or unilateral areola recreation, we recommend a spot color test before the actual procedure is performed. A patient’s skin tone and body chemistry will affect the healed color of their tattooed areas. Therefore, the spot test is the safest way to determine the formula for the closest color match to an existing areola. The color spot test is scheduled as an individual appointment. It should be completed 4 to 6 weeks before the actual tattooing procedure to allow for healing and color stabilization. Once the spot is healed and the color is evaluated, the areola tattooing sessions can begin. You should also keep in mind that a simulated or scarred areola will probably need more than one tattooing session to achieve the best looking result.

After Your Procedure

You will need to follow specific steps for one week after each areola tattooing session. We will give you an after care kit with medical grade supplies and detailed instructions. Although you will not need to take time off from work, you should keep your recovery period and after care in mind when scheduling your procedure appointments around work, social, or travel plans.
