Permanent Makeup Q & A
What is permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup refers to cosmetic tattooing — semi-permanent tattooing to apply makeup to different parts of the body, such as eyeliner around the eyes or filling in the eyebrows with hair-like brush strokes.
Why would I choose permanent makeup?
You might choose permanent makeup:
- To enhance your appearance
- To save you the time you spend applying makeup
- If you have skin sensitivities and can’t wear traditional cosmetics
- If you’re active and want to look your best even when playing sports
- If applying makeup is often difficult due to a condition like arthritis
- If you’re really busy and don’t have enough time to apply makeup
- If you have a loss of eyebrows due to a medical condition
- If you have changes in your vision that make it difficult to apply makeup
- If you’ve had breast surgery, such as a reconstruction following breast cancer
Permanent makeup can be subtle or dramatic depending on your cosmetic goals.
What are some of the available options for permanent makeup?
Aesthetic Therapies provides many permanent makeup options, such as:
- Eyeliner (top and bottom)
- Lip liner and lip color
- Camouflaging a scar or beauty mark
- Lash enhancement
- Areola repigmentation
- Filling in areas of the hairline
Both upper and lower eyeliner can be completed during the same appointment.
Microblading involves tattooing hair-like brush strokes to improve the shape and appearance of your eyebrows and boost thickness.
How is permanent makeup applied?
During your permanent makeup treatment, your licensed specialist takes time to assess the target area, such as your eyebrows, before choosing the desired tattoo color that best matches and complements your skin tone.
Your specialist gently applies a topical anesthetic numbing cream and uses a small handheld tool made of several ultra-fine needles to carefully add semi-permanent pigment to your skin’s upper layers.
If you’re having microblading done on your eyebrows, your licensed specialist manually draws tiny, realistic hair strokes onto your skin in a perfectly applied arch.
One permanent makeup session typically takes around two to three hours with no downtime. Most people don’t report any discomfort.
Your permanent makeup results can last from one to five years or longer, depending on the individual. You can always come back to Aesthetic Therapies for another treatment to maintain your results.
Best results might be achieved with more than one treatment. Treatments are usually spaced around four to six weeks apart. The semi-permanent pigment fades over time and leaves your skin or your eyebrows or hairline just as it was before.
Permanent makeup can be truly and positively life-changing. Learn more and call Aesthetic Therapies or schedule online today.
