Micropigmentation is also known as permanent cosmetics, semi-permanent cosmetics, permanent makeup, semi-permanent makeup, or tattoo cosmetics.
It is a professional procedure used to give clients the look of long lasting applied makeup. It is done by a skilled, licensed professional,
who uses a handheld machine to gently embed micro pigments into the skin. It is perfect for people who want to enhance their lips, eyes, or eyebrows
without having to extend their daily beauty regime. Micropigmentation is ideal for clients of all types. The main services that are performed are eyeliner and lips.
Clients receiving permanent eyeliner are from every range of need, whether it be someone looking
to have the minimal done with a “lash enhancement eyeliner” or an artistic bold liner, it’s all available.
Clients receiving permanent lip blush or liner tend to be those who want a soft natural blush enhancement
or those who want brighter full lips. Customizing a larger pout or balancing out lip shape are other reasons for a client to receive
permanent lip services. There is a wide range of reasons why each client comes to get this service done, so don’t be shy to ask questions.
A well-experienced and skilled artist can create gorgeous and natural looking full lips.

The questions asked during your initial consultation are critical not only to the end-result…but to your health and safety as well. Answering honestly and being open about things like medications, health concerns and prior procedures is imperative. We cover a lot of information in our consultations and we want you to be confident and ready prior to any work being done…so questions from you are not only welcome…but expected!
Avoid sleeping on your face for 7 days after the procedure.
No Sun, sweating, or tanning after the procedure for 10 days.
No swimming for at least 10 days…or until the area is completely healed. Salt water and chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change color.
Only touch the treated areas with clean hands. Do not rub, scratch or pick the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate. Picking can cause scarring and loss of pigment.
Over the next couple of days, your tattoo will look good and any redness should go away. Then you will notice that it will start to look duller and can even form a little white haze to it. You may see some scabbing form as well, or mild flaking. This is all normal.
Generally, 4 to 6 weeks…but everyone’s skin is different. Color intensity will be darker immediately after the procedure, and will slowly fade more as healing continues. Your new permanent makeup will go through several phases during the healing cycle. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly, but it is a normal part of the process. After the healing process is complete, you will be ready for your touch-up.
Understand that the touch-up appointment is part of the total procedure…and not simply a second full session.
Numbing cream contains Lidocaine. So if you have a Lidocaine allergy be advised you will have to do the procedure with no numbing. This can be more uncomfortable…but is generally tolerable for most people.
Sorry…but if you are pregnant or breast-feeding we can not move forward with the procedure due to hormonal stress factors.
