Get Fuller Brows and Lips With Microblading and Permanent Makeup
We are now offering permanent makeup and microblading as well as eyelash extensions! Permanent Make-Up is a non-surgical micro-procedure known as Micropigmentation.
Tiny droplets of custom blended colors are skillfully deposited into the dermal layer of the skin to simulate natural looking or well-defined Make-Up. This process is a selective art form of traditional tattooing whereby the natural features of the face are enhanced and defined in the form of permanent eyebrows, eyeliner and/or lip liner and color.
The results are beautiful, immediate and permanent! Each treatment is as unique as the individual receiving it.

How long does Permanent Make Up last?
Depends on the following:
- It depends on the color being used how long it will last. The lighter the color and the warmer the color tones are the more frequently a person needs a touch-up to boost up the color.
- If you tan the sun will fade it, remember to protect your investment.
- Eyebrows fade the fastest if not protect with sunscreen.
- Eyeliner last the longest because most people wear sunglasses to protect their eyes.
- Lips can last a long time if you’re using a lip moisturizer with sunscreen.
- Medications you’re taking, can also affect the fading of permanent make-up, such as thyroid medication, birth control and hormone replacement, any hormonal changes and medication will make the color fad more quickly.
- Some Skin care products you may use around the area of permanent make-up can make it fade faster, any product that’s for anti-aging usually will fad the permanent make-up. The key is to stay a half an inch form the area because products can migrate under the skin approximately 1/2 of an inch.
Are permanent cosmetics really permanent?
Permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin. As a result, the iron oxides, or pigmenting components remain in the body regardless of the external visual appearance of the procedure. However, as with any tattoo, fading can and often does occur due to many factors. The predominant reason for the fading of the color of a permanent cosmetic procedure is decomposition of pigments due to exposure to the sun, however, your health, consumption of medications, and use of facial products containing exfoliating properties all contribute to the need for maintenance. At some time in the future, the color in your procedure will in all likelihood require refreshing.
Do permanent makeup treatments hurt?
Our technicians take every precaution possible to ensure that permanent makeup application is as pain-free and comfortable for our clients. Everyone has a different threshold for pain, we work with you personally with a wide range of physician-grade topical anesthetics for your desired comfort during the procedure.
How long does the procedure take?
Usually, each procedure appointment is about one to two hours. The majority of the time is spent in selecting the appropriate color and measuring and mapping your skin before starting. Adequate time is allowed for topical anesthetic to make you completely comfortable. You will also be given thorough aftercare instructions for optimal healing and outcome. Can I resume normal activities after the procedure?
This is unique to each client. Generally, there is some swelling of the treated area. While eyebrows may show little after effect, eyeliner and lip procedures may produce more swelling and it may last anywhere from two to seventy two hours. During the procedure there may be some bleeding and although rare, some bruising. There is usually some tenderness for a few days. The color is much darker than you may expect for the first six to ten days. It is recommend that you do not plan any special events for several days after your procedure.
Please note: Individual results may vary. You must allow up at least 4 to 6 weeks for healing, and you cannot determine full results until area is healed. At your follow up appointment, it will be determined if a touch up is necessary to add more pigments to the area, for some people the pigment may not "hold' as well due to the skin (some people have tough thick skin). Remember, you cannot not determine end result of procedure immediately after appointment. Please adhere to the aftercare instructions that are given to you at the end of your appointment, by failing to follow the aftercare instructions may result is poor color retention and a longer healing process.
What is a touch-up, and do I need one?
Often the tattooed color is not perfect after the initial procedure heals. Permanent cosmetic procedures are a process and at least one follow-up to the initial procedure should be scheduled. It is recommended that any required detail work to the original procedure be performed no sooner than four weeks after the original procedure. The minimum standard for follow-up detail work for lip procedures is six weeks.
Lips have a different healing agenda than procedures performed on other parts of the face due to their delicate nature. The cited time frames will vary depending on the health profile and age of the client, but these are good minimum standards for consideration.
Do the pigments pose allergy problems?
People can develop an allergy to anything, anytime; however, pigment allergies are considered rare. Some doctors recommend that people with environmental allergies or allergies to conventional makeup have permanent cosmetic procedures because they can replace cosmetic products that people are sensitive to.
While allergic reactions to any type of tattooing pigments on the body or on the face through permanent cosmetics may occur at any point in time, they are extremely rare. Ask your technician if their pigments meet their local jurisdictional requirements. Also, SPCP pigment suppliers are required to list the ingredients on their pigment labels.
