1. What is Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent make up is the art and science of implanting pigment into the dermal layer of your skin. Because the color is placed "in" your skin versus "on" your skin a more natural, softer look results.

2. Who benefits from permanent cosmetics?
EVERYONE… from the young to the elderly….anyone who desires a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance.
It is especially beneficial to people who cannot wear other cosmetics due to allergies and skin sensitivities; people who want to look their best for activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, tennis, aerobics and those who do not want to worry about "sweating off" or reapplying cosmetics.
Permanent cosmetics is extremely wonderful for people who have difficulty applying their make up due to vision or motor impairments; people who have arthritis, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis or just have unsteady hands.
Besides being convenient, permanent make-up restores dignity to those whose appearance has suffered, due to diseases like alopecia or cancer or harsh medical treatments.

3. Does the procedure hurt?
No. Topical anesthetics developed especially for permanent cosmetics make the procedure practically painless.

4. What kind of care is needed after the procedure?
A healing ointment is provided that should be applied to the procedural area twice a day for seven days. It is necessary to keep the area clean by refraining from putting make up on the procedure for seven days. To keep swelling to a minimum, it is recommended that you apply ice to the procedural area several times in the first 24 hours.

5. How long will the permanent makeup last?
Permanent make up can last more than 5 years if properly taken care of. One way to increase the longevity of the makeup is to take good care of the procedural area while it is healing. Use total sun block and limit chlorine and Retin A exposure to maximize the lifespan of the permanent makeup.

6. Are there any possible reactions?
We use the beautiful and hypoallergenic pigments. They were developed 15 years ago and have had no reports of allergic reactions. It is very important that clients fill out the medical history form accurately to disclose of any allergies or medical situations that need special consideration. If a client has allergies, a patch test will be done behind the ear prior the procedure.

7. What happens as you age?
Permanent make up ages with you, as it will just subtly fade over time.

8. How long does a procedure take?
Each procedure takes about 2 hours including the preparation, numbing and the icing time.
