Question: What is Permanent Makeup

Answer: Permanent Cosmetics, also referred to as micro-pigmentation, cosmetic tattooing or dermal-pigmentation, is a process whereby completely natural pigments are implanted beneath the epidermis (top layer of skin), into the dermal layer (second layer of skin), by micro insertion. This technique has been medically developed and specifically designed for a safe permanent application.
The pigments used have been specially formulated for cosmetic application. Not to be compared with traditional tattooing, in which permanent skin dyes and inks are placed into the skin.

Question: Is it ok for pregnant women?

Answer: No. The industry has decided it is better for a pregnant woman to wait until she has delivered and has finished nursing prior to having permanent makeup procedures done.

Question: Does it hurt?

Answer: Although everyone's pain sensitivity varies, the application of permanent makeup involves minor discomfort when topical anesthetics are used during the application

Question: How long does it take?

Answer: Although the length of the procedures may vary, as well as the number of visits required, most procedures generally take less than 1-1/2 hours.

Question: Are the pigments safe?

Answer: Pigments used in permanent cosmetics have an extensive record of safety. Used in both medical and artistic fields for over 20 years, their safety is undisputed. Face Inks pigments are iron oxide pigments which are MRI-safe.

Question: How much does it cost?

Answer: The average cost per procedure varies. The cost of the procedure should not be the most important issue when consulting a potential practitioner. Payment options are available upon request.
