Permanent Makeup Q&A
What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup is a way of applying pigment in precise areas of the skin’s upper layer. This treatment helps to correct facial and body irregularities and to create makeup that won’t have to be reapplied each day. Areas of primary focus are the eyebrows, eyeliner, lips, and areola (for postmastectomy clients).
Who Gets Permanent Makeup?
Women of all ages choose permanent makeup. There are a number of different motivations, including clients who simply want to spend less time performing their daily makeup applications. Cancer patients who have lost their eyebrows during their treatment process benefit greatly from having this treatment performed. There are some clients who have limited dexterity or poor vision who simply find it easier to have the makeup already in place instead of having to struggle with this daily task. For some clients, years of plucking have left them with little to no visible eyebrows. The 3D Permanent makeup technique utilized at Allure creates beautifully shaped and tinted eyebrows for these clients once again.
Who is a Candidate for Permanent Makeup?
Most clients in good health who want permanent makeup will be good candidates. However, it is always best to check with the physician prior to the procedure. Dr. Scott-Terry at Allure Laser & Med Spa assesses each client prior to the treatment to confirm that they are qualified candidates for this procedure. Clients with diabetes, pregnant women, and those taking certain medications may not be able to have permanent makeup.
What Does the Permanent Makeup Application Feel Like?
The application is typically done on highly sensitive areas, so an anesthetic agent will be used to make the clients more comfortable. The vast majority of clients experience very little discomfort using this technique.
How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?
Permanent makeup may last up to one year but occasional touch-ups of the pigment color may be needed between 6-12 months. Every client is unique and there are some factors that may contribute to how long the pigment lasts. Sun exposure can fade the color of the permanent makeup, as well as treatments like chemical peels. Use of our recommended medical grade moisturizer and sunscreen products will help maximize the longevity of the permanent makeup.
