Please refer to the pre-care instructions.
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic tattoo that is implanting pigment into the skin.
I use a topical anesthetic for all procedures which eliminates most of the discomfort. Some clients experience discomfort due to the varying pain tolerance and/or resistance to anesthetic. However, it is also dependent on how careful your technician is. I am extremely giving of the application of anesthetics. I commonly have someone fall asleep (and some snore) which is music to my ears as I have done my job.
This will vary upon each client. I always say it is 20% me and 80% you as to how long it will stay. It depends on medications, sun exposure, some creams we use on our skin and so on.
Absolutely! This will just enhance any other cosmetics you use!
My client’s health and safety are the most important parts of any and every procedure. I use pre-sterilized, one-time use needles. All of my non disposable equipment is barrier wrapped and cold solution sterilized before and after each client.
Dark makeup! DO NOT have your permanent makeup applied right before any major events. Wait 5 days for eyeliner and brows and 10 days for any lip procedures. The area will be tender and swollen for a few days. The color will oxidize immediately after the procedure and look “too dark”. This is good! It can mean less of a touch up. The area will peel leaving less intense color within days. You will book your follow up appointment 4-6 weeks out to perfect your makeup.
Yes and no. You should always be cautious, as it is possible to be allergic to the pigment or the topical anesthetic. You can have an allergy scratch test done by request if you are concerned. However, I only use the brands of pigments that have never had any known allergic reactions. Remember, PMU is a wonderful alternative to cosmetics, if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
