Permanent Makeup FAQ

IS PERMANENT MAKE-UP "PERMANENT"?

Your permanent cosmetic make-up procedure depends upon the technician, the products used for the application, how deep the cosmetic tattoo was placed into the skin, how well you take care of the procedural area while it is healing, and whether or not you use a total sun block after the procedure area has completely healed. All these factors will determine how long the procedure will last. Colour enhancers are also suggested "as needed" to keep the procedure looking "fresh and new".


WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING MY PROCEDURE?

our procedure area may be slightly swollen and irritated. This is called a "wheal and flare" reaction. The area may also be darker for a few days while it is healing because of the lymph and blood droplets that may have been brought to the surface during your application. While our procedure area is healing, it must go through three phases before you will experience your final results. The procedure area must first heal, peel and fade final results may take 4-8 weeks to completely heal.


IS THIS PROCEDURE SAFE?

Permanent cosmetic procedures are safe if the technician has had a proper education and follows all of OSHA and CDC guidelines. Single use, sterile needles and machine parts are used for each client then properly disposed of.


HOW DO I CARE FOR MY "NEW" PERMANENT MAKEUP PROCEDURE?

After completion, you will receive a post-treatment care instructional sheet. The overall success of your procedure is contingent upon you following these instructions. A follow-up visit will be scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks from your initial application. This is to fine tune and touch-up any area of the skin that may have expelled the pigment.


DO I HAVE TO TAKE ANY PRECAUTIONS PRIOR TO A LIP PROCEDURE?

If you have ever had a cold sore or fever blister, you must take and antiviral pre-procedure. Your physician may prescribe Valtrex, Famvir or Zovirax. Herpetic outbreaks usually occur on the 3rd day post procedure and taking antivirals will lessen your chance of an outbreak, you may lose the implanted pigment colour in the area of the outbreak.


HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

In most cases it should last 2-5 years. A touch up will help to rejuvenate the color.
