Permanent makeup can enhance your life! Wake up with makeup perfectly applied every day.

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids. It is also used to produce artificial eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast's areola, such as after breast surgery.

Most commonly called permanent cosmetics, other names include dermapigmentation, micropigmentation, and cosmetic tattooing, the latter being most appropriate since permanent makeup is, in fact, tattooing.

How Is Permanent Makeup Applied?

Typically, permanent makeup can be applied in an office setting. The procedure will be performed with a pen-like instrument or standard tattoo gun. Your doctor or specialist will wear medical gloves when performing the procedure. The procedure itself will take a short amount of time, perhaps 20 minutes to a half hour at most.
If you are receiving anesthesia, you will be required to arrive earlier in order to let the anesthesia take effect. After the procedure, your specialist or doctor will provide you with an antiseptic to cleanse the treated region.

What Should I Expect After Getting Permanent Makeup?

You will be sent home the same day you get permanent makeup. You should expect swelling in the treated region. Your doctor or specialist will instruct you on how often you should ice the area and what type of ointment you can apply to the area.
If you are having the procedure performed in your eye region, you should plan to have someone drive you to the office and home again. You may experience watery eyes, which is normal.
The pigmentation typically will appear darker in the weeks following the procedure, but will fade over time.
Follow your doctor's instructions on what to avoid such as peroxide and sunlight. Either of these can damage your new look.
