What is permanent makeup, and how exactly does it work?

Permanent makeup is a unique cosmetic procedure in which pigment is inserted into the skin to create the appearance of makeup. The procedure is sometimes called permanent cosmetics, micro pigmentation, or cosmetic tattooing. Permanent makeup enhances the eyebrows, lips, and eyes. It is also used to correct imperfections such as scars and uneven skin pigmentation.

What can I expect from my treatment session?

The pigment is administered into the upper layer of the skin using a fine needle. The needle punctures the skin and deposits the pigment into the dermis, the second layer of the skin.

The procedure is relatively painless and it only takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Recovery time is usually short, and there is minimal discomfort and swelling.

How long does permanent makeup last?

Permanent makeup can last several years but may fade over time. Touch-ups may be required to maintain the desired results. Our team finds that most patients will enjoy the high pigmentation for anywhere from one to three years before these additional treatments might be needed.
