“What is Permanent Makeup?”
Permanent cosmetics, also referred to as micropigmentation, 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 microinsertion. This technique has been medically developed and specifically designed for a safe, permanent application. The pigments used have been specially formulated for cosmetic application. This process is not to be compared with traditional tattooing, in which permanent skin dyes and inks are placed into the skin.
“How much does it cost?”
The average cost per procedure varies. Procedure pricing is available upon request. For new cosmetic procedures, fees consist of a deposit and two affordable payments. The cost of the procedure should not be your deciding factor when selecting a permanent cosmetic professional that is altering your appearance permanently. You will want to choose a certified, experienced master practitioner to perform your procedures.
“Are the pigments safe?”
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.
“How long does it take?”
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.
“Does it hurt?”
Although everyone’s pain sensitivity varies, the application of permanent makeup includes topical anesthetics that greatly reduce sensitivity.
