WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?

 Permanent makeup is the art and application of custom color blended pigments inserted into the 
dermal layer of skin to create a tri-dimensional eyebrow, soft subtle eyeliner or a beautiful lip color.
It's a very natural looking tatoo when applied correctly.  Color that doesn't wash or smudge off!
 

IS PERMANENT MAKEUP SAFE?

 Yes, it is totally safe if:
You have a technician that is licensed and well educated 
The technician is licensed by the Health Department 
The technician is current with their Blood Borne Pathogen (BBP) education
The technician follows all of OSHA and CDC guidelines for cross contamination
The  technician uses only single, sterile, one time use needles and machine  parts as well as all products and they are properly disposed of after  your procedure.
The technician uses products that are made in the USA and have been used by professionals for years with no complications. 

DOES IT LOOK NATURAL?

 If the permanent makeup is applied by a licensed, well-educated  technician who knows how to design your makeup and uses the correct  pigment colours the results should appear very natural. 

HOW LONG DOES PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?

 With age, sun exposure, metabolism and natural skin exfoliation it will  fade somewhat after 3-5 years and can be "freshened" with a maintenance  touch-up.  However, the darker the color the longer it will stay  unchanged in your skin.  This process varies from individual to  individual according to skin type an lifestyle. Wearing sunscreen, hats,  sunglasses and using proper skin helps color hold longer.   

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS OF PERMANENT MAKEUP?

 Your technician will schedule a consultation with you  to discuss the  procedure you are interested in, sign Consent and Release Forms, a  Medical History Form, discuss your Pre and Post Care Instructions, and  discuss any contraindications to your having a permanent makeup  procedure. With your guidance  your technician will draw on your  eyebrows or lip liner and you will  both critique the procedure to  double check for symmetry. The technician will follow the exact lines  you have drawn on so you will see exactly how the procedure will look  when the application is completed. For an eyeliner procedure the  technician will follow your lash line so you do not need to draw the  lines on. Approximately 4-6 weeks later a touch up appointment will be  scheduled. During this appointment we will fine tune the design shape  and if necessary add more colour.
 

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

 Plan to schedule at least 1 to 2 hours for your procedure.  Anesthesia  will be placed on the procedure area for approximately 15-20 minutes.  The procedure area will be drawn on and the implantation of pigment  should take approximately 30-45 minutes.
Your color refresher (or  touch -up) appointment will be quicker as the technician only needs to  work on the areas that need to be fine tuned.

ARE THE PROCEDURES PAINFUL?

 

Some say tweezing their eyebrows is more painful than having  permanent makeup while others say it feels like a tickle or vibration.

Effective topical (rub on) anesthetics that are developed for permanent cosmetics are used before and during procedure!
 If  you are anxious or tense when you are having any type of procedure you  will feel more discomfort. In this instance- we suggest contacting your  health care provider for an anti-anxiety medication. If you take any  medication you should not drive to or from the procedure. Have someone  drive you. There are also several homeopathic remedies that will calm  you.
 We also use  essential oils to help you relax. There are  several things to consider prior to your procedure, no caffeine, no  alcohol, do not schedule your appointment around your menstrual cycle as  all of these make you more sensitive.
If you have had a traditional  artistic tattoo or have piercings you will find that permanent makeup is  easier to tolerate than these procedures.

ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP?

 Yes, if you are under a physician’s care we want you to obtain a release  written on their prescription note pad stating that it is safe for you  to have a procedure(cosmetic tattoo) performed. Your health care  provider will know if you will heal without any complications , if you  are prone to infections or have a compromised immune system. 


 Contraindications include but are not limited to: Blood thinners, heart  medications, aspirin or products containing aspirin, medications for any  disease like diabetes, lupus or any autoimmune disease. 
 

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE TAKE A BENADRYL OR ANTIHISTAMINE PRIOR TO THEIR PROCEDURE?

 Any type of antihistamine will slow down the release of histamine in the procedure area. This serves a three-fold purpose:

 1. The antihistamine will dry up your tears making your eyeliner procedure easier for the technician.

 2.  The antihistamine will lessen the swelling effect on the procedure area  making the insertion of pigment easier for the technician.

 3. The antihistamine helps many people to relax and fall asleep during the procedure.

Always  consult with your health care provider before taking any medication. If  you take any medication do not drive to or from your procedure. Have  someone drive you and pick you up. 

WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER MY PROCEDURE?

 Depending on how many times we had to go over an area to implant the  pigment, your skin may show very little signs of trauma or may be  swollen and red. If you have taken an antihistamine, your swelling will  be less than if you have not taken any medication. You may notice  swelling for 24-48 hours. You can ice the area for 10 minutes and then  follow with heat for 10 minutes several times a day. This will bring the  swelling down faster.
The area will appear darker at first because  of the blood and lymph that has been brought to the surface during the  permanent makeup application. The procedure area tissue will crust a bit  and this tissue will slough off usually within 5-7 days leaving you  with a softer colour. The healing process depends on how healthy you are  and how hydrated your skin is. The younger you are the faster you will  heal and if you are older your skin will take longer to regenerate. All  of this is explained in your paperwork at your consultation. This will  be repeated at your colour refresher appointment.
Do not have your  permanent makeup applied prior to attending functions that you must look  your best. Have your makeup applied at least 2 weeks prior to your  function or wait until after your function is over. 

DO TECHNICIANS EVER REUSE THEIR NEEDLES?

 Needles should be used once and disposed of in a sharps container. The  technician should open the needle being used for your procedure in front  of you and disposed of at the end of the procedure while you are  watching them. 

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY PROCEDURE AFTER?

 You will also receive an ‘After Care ‘pack consisting of paperwork with  explicit instructions on how to care for your procedure area for the  next week, a packet of petroleum and several cotton swabs.
 We prefer  that you use only the petroleum as it is non-reactive on the skin.  Using Neosporin, bacitracin or other products may cause an allergic  reaction on open skin. If you experience any type of redness, irritation  or pain stop using the product and phone your technician who will  advise you what to do. If you have received an eyeliner procedure, do  not rub or touch your eyes with your fingers as they are laden with  bacteria. You may also create a corneal abrasion (scratches on the  cornea) Use a cotton swab to apply your petroleum.
 Follow your aftercare instructions exactly and you will have a beautiful results.
We do our best to give you a beautiful procedure…. While you are responsible to do your best with your aftercare.
 Together we can create a long lasting, beautiful, natural permanent makeup procedure!
