Frequently Asked Questions
What is permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup is a gentle process of depositing pigment into the uppermost layer of skin – the epidermis. Permanent makeup is also known as semi-permanent, micropigmentation, derma pigmentation, or cosmetic tattooing. This is a visible alternative to traditional cosmetics that need to be applied daily.
Does micropigmentation hurt?
Every person is different, but all the procedures are done with your comfort in mind. We do use topical anesthetics prior to the procedure and throughout to minimize discomfort. Most people will feel nothing at all, while some may feel a slight prickling sensation. Any minimal discomfort that a person may experience is definitely outweighed by the stunning results that will be achieved.
What is the difference between permanent makeup and tattooing?
There are several differences between traditional tattooing and permanent makeup. Permanent makeup is deposited into the upper layer of the skin – the epidermis. This is the layer of skin that you can see and that is constantly renewing. Tattooing on the other hand deposits ink deeper into what is called the dermis, or the second layer of the skin.
Am I suitable for permanent makeup?
Most are suitable for some sort of permanent makeup. We will explore with you precisely which procedure is best for you. We do this via a one-on-one consultation that includes a discussion of your wishes, expectations, before and aftercare, pricing, and booking.
