What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent Makeup, also called Cosmetic Tattooing or Micropigmentation, is the process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin by means of a tiny, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of cosmetic makeup.

Does the Permanent procedure hurt?

A highly-effective, topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure.

What should I expect at the first appointment?

We provide a free consultation to all of our clients. You can arrange your consultation and procedure on separate days, or the same day. During your consultation, the technician will discuss your expectations and the ideal shape and color you are looking to achieve. The technician will do a make-up design preview to give you […]
