How Long Does A Permanent Makeup Procedure Take?

Each treatment session of microblading eyebrows,ombré brows, permanent eyeliner, lip blushing, skin camouflage and scalp micropigmentation takes about 1.5-2 hours. After the healing period which takes approximately 4-6 weeks, if any adjustments are needed a second session can be booked. The second session takes about thirty minutes to one hour. Normally those with an oily skin type are more likely than others to need more than two sessions to get the perfect outcome.

Am I a Good Candidate for Permanent Makeup?

Due to the probability of premature labour and other adverse events, we don’t perform permanent makeup procedures on pregnant clients. Additionally, those clients with skin conditions such as Eczema, Dermatitis, Rosacea, large facial pores and etc are advised to consult with their Dr before starting their intended permanent makeup procedure.

Are There Any Risks or Side Effects Involved?

Risks though very rare and uncommon are not impossible. Some people may experience allergic reactions. In that case, you may visit your Dr to treat the allergy. Another risk that is even less likely than allergic reactions is infection which usually happens if clients don’t follow the aftercare instructions from the artist. As long as you are in our clinic, you can be sure that we take every necessary step and precaution to minimize the risks involved with permanent makeup.

Are Permanent Makeup Procedures Painful?

If we tell you not at all, it is definitely not true. However, how painful they are is very subjective and varies from person to person. Nonetheless, in all the permanent makeup procedures we use topical anesthetics to numb the area under treatment. We take the utmost care in ensuring your safety and comfort during the permanent makeup procedures.

What Is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation” or “micropigment implantation”. The cosmetic implantation technique deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis.

Is It Really Permanent?

Well, the reason that permanent makeup is also called semi-permanent makeup is that since the pigments are tattooed into the outermost layer of the skin, they eventually start to fade. However, the pigments cannot be washed off and depending on where they are placed, they can last between one to five years.
