Frequently Asked Questions
What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent Makeup is also known as Micro-pigmentation or Tattooing. Pigments are implanted into the dermal layer of the skin. I use either a coil machine, with very fine sterilized (autoclaved) disposable needles and tubes, or the Soft Tap® machineless hand method. All procedures are combinations of pigment color plus the patient's skin undertones. This combination will equal the final color. Results are individual and can last for years if properly taken care of.
Will it hurt?
Everyone's tolerance level is different. I use very effective topical anesthetics developed by a woman anesthesiologist who also practices permanent makeup. Your comfort and safety is my primary concern.
What results can I expect?
Together we will achieve a soft natural enhancement of your eyes, brows and lips. Final results cannot be determined until all applications are completed.
There is usually some redness and swelling which will subside quickly. Individuals vary.
Your first steps toward personal freedom:
Consultation to determine personal color analysis and the proper symmetry for your face.
Patch test to qualify any color changes that take place with the undertones of an individual's skin, sensitivity to pigment, and topical anesthetic.
Medical history: Not everyone is a candidate.
