DIGITAL PERMANENT MAKEUP
Permanent makeup should enhance your natural features, without giving a “made-up” look. Topical makeup trends change from season to season. However, having thick lashes and defined brows and lips will never go out of style. Therefore, permanent makeup is not meant to replace topical makeup. It gives you the advantage of looking natural, only better, even when not wearing conventional makeup.
Eyebrows that are too light, sparse, or nonexistent, can be beautifully enhanced and improved with micropigmentation. Eyebrows are important because they frame your eyes and give your face expression. When the eyebrows are fuller and extended, you get a more youthful appearance. We can extend, augment and improve the appearance of your eyebrows with a soft, powdery eyebrow or by simulated hair strokes with a 3-dimensional effect.
Permanent eyeliner is placed in the lash line, which enhances and defines the beauty of the eyes. Our technique is a very natural look and will make lashes appear thicker when not wearing mascara. It opens the eyes and makes them “pop.”
Permanent lip color is perfect for asymmetrical shaped lips, thick lips, thin lips, or lips with uneven vermillion borders. It will also eliminate the problem of lipstick “bleeding” into the fine lines around the mouth.
Women who have undergone mastectomies, other breast surgery, or who may have irregular or fading areolas, will benefit from paramedical breast restoration. Permanent areola repigmentation and nipple restoration techniques employs cosmetically tattooed micropigmentation as a way to restore the natural beauty of your breasts so you can regain confidence in your own femininity.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL I REALLY LOOK LIKE MYSELF…ONLY BETTER?
Permanent makeup is not intended to replace cosmetics completely. Because the color is placed “in” your skin and not “on” your skin, a more natural, softer look results. When you’re ready for a special occasion, you can apply as much additional makeup as you wish.
Do I need anesthesia for the Refirme™ ST?
No, absolutely not. Refirme™ ST is a gentle treatment, requiring no pain relief with topical or other forms of anesthesia. This is quite different from the Thermage treatments, which are rather unpleasant and are often not tolerated without the help of an anesthesiologist. This increases the cost, not to mention the risk.
HOW LONG WILL MY PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?
Permanent makeup is long-lasting. However, as you become accustomed to your new makeup, it’s not uncommon to want more. You may want to freshen up your new makeup every couple years. The darker the color, such as black, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin. More natural, delicate colors are sometimes vulnerable to the effects of sun, swimming and breakdown by the body. As a general rule, eyeliner, and lip color have the longest longevity, approximately 2 to 5 years, depending upon the color used. Eyebrows may not need a touch up for 1 to 3 years.
HOW LONG DOES EACH PROCEDURE TAKE?
Approximately 1 to 2 hours. There will be an additional follow up procedure that will take place about three to six weeks from the day of the initial procedure.
IS PERMANENT MAKEUP PAINFUL?
Permanent makeup procedures are semi-invasive and there maybe some discomfort. It really does vary on each individual’s threshold for pain, but the sensation can be compared to tweezing. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the areas.
