Permanent make-up is a cosmetic treatment that involves tattooing long-lasting inks into areas of the face where make-up is applied, such as on the eyelids, brows or lips. It can be done with a natural appearance or in a more dramatic way. Permanent make-up is also used to help cover areas of irregular pigmentation.
Permanent make-up procedures are done by Melissa Miles, licensed master esthetician and cosmetic tattooer, who has over eighteen years of experience with permanent makeup. She will discuss your color choices and desired look with you before the procedure. The ink is actually implanted into the skin with a hand held device and, like a regular tattoo, cannot be washed off. Because permanent make-up is typically placed over such a fine area, the pigment will tend to fade over time. As a result, touch ups may be required, usually in three to seven years. The average amount of time taken to apply permanent make-up is about two to three hours.
Do not take any anti-inflammatory medications, including ibuprofen and aspirin, Vitamin E, or fish oil for two weeks before the procedure. Do not drink alcohol for three days before the procedure.
The areas where the permanent make-up is applied may be very shiny for several days following the procedure because that area is healing and requires a little ointment to aid in the process. There will be some swelling especially with lip tattooing. Lips tend to take a bit longer to heal than the eyes and eyebrows.
