Permanent Makeup

Change your everyday makeup routine for good

Over the last several years, permanent makeup has become a popular procedure among people of all ages. It’s not only a great way to save time, but it can also do wonders for the way you feel in addition to the way you look.

Permanent Makeup

How Does It Work?

Permanent makeup is considered micro-pigmentation, which is essentially a tattoo. We’ll use a thin needle to place pigment underneath the upper layers of your skin. Once we’re finished, your skin will be “permanently” tinted. (We say “permanently” because permanent makeup doesn’t last forever. It will fade and usually requires a touch-up every couple of years.)

What Should I Have Done?

At Medical Cosmetics, we offer permanent makeup for eyebrows, eyeliner (both upper and lower), eyelashes, and lips. If your eyelashes are short or sparse, consider our eyelash enhancement. Or if you need more definition for your lips, consider our lip enhancement. If you’re unsure which procedure would be best for you, you can always talk to our permanent makeup professional to help you decide.

No matter what you decide, we recommend going for a “natural” look for best results.

Microblading

If you have thin eyebrows and just can’t seem to get them to look the way you want, consider trying our most popular permanent makeup technique – microblading. This solution is essentially a tattoo technique done with a hand-held tool (instead of a machine) to give you beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows. We use a hair stroke technique to create feathered brows that look great all day, every day. Our expert will custom design the perfect eyebrow thickness, angle, and stroke for your face to give you fuller, shapely eyebrows that you won’t have to fill in or enhance in any way.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Permanent makeup is essentially a tattoo. You may experience redness, swelling, irritation, bruising or itching as the treatment heals. Our professional technician will give you an ointment packet with instructions about how to apply it to your new permanent makeup for the next several days. This lotion soothes and calms while also aiding the healing process. You may also use ice on the treated area the day of your procedure to sooth your skin and bring down swelling. It is rare, but some people may have more severe reactions to permanent makeup such as a rash, allergic reaction, scarring or bumps. Our technician and facility is reputable and professional and will take every precaution to lessen adverse side effects to give you an overall pleasant experience.

Permanent makeup is the art and science of implanting color into your skin. Permanent makeup helps give back what time has taken away and saves you precious time you normally spend “putting on your face”.  Permanent makeup makes it possible to look better around the clock and be less self conscious.  When you look better you feel better.

Permanent makeup lasts a long time, but not forever. You will need touch-ups approximately every one to two years. The darker colors last the longest. During your treatment medical grade topical creams are used to assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. When your treatment is completed the color will appear darker than the final result. This is because the color is in BOTH the epidermis and dermis. The color in the top layer will flake off during the healing process lightening the overall effect over the next 4-6 weeks. During your consultation you will determine with Michelle, our permanent makeup professional, the look you want. Eyebrows and eyeliner are drawn on first with makeup pencils so you can agree to the shape and color. Michelle uses the latest “hair stroke” micro-blade technique for an amazing natural brow look. Together you and Michelle will create an even more beautiful you. Call today for a free consultation.
