What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup is a technique through which an individual implants pigments, formulated for the face, through the epidermal into the dermal layer of the facial skin. This process inputs permanent colored pigments into eyebrows, eyes, lips, and cheek areas.
What To Expect
People interested in Intradermal Micro-Pigmentation will visit the office for a consultation/procedure appointment. The consultation will take place before and at the time of the procedure. This is when the client and nurse will discuss the procedure, decide on a color and fill out the necessary paperwork.
Every client has the option of taking sedation for relaxation. The sedation is not for pain just for the purposes of relaxing. Anyone who decides to take the sedation will need someone to drop them off at the office and then pick them up after the procedure is over or they may have someone wait for them in the waiting room. Some clients find it helpful to take Extra Strength Tylenol® before the procedure.
The shape and color of the lips will be discussed at the time of the consultations. The client may draw on the shape that they want prior to arrival or they can wait and the nurse may draw on the shape for the client. It is important that anyone who has had herpes simplex viruses and/or has had a cold sore take the prescription medicine Famvir®(anti-viral) prior to the procedure. Another option is to purchase L-Lysine, an over the counter vitamin that seems to inhibit cold sores. Anesthetic will be a combination of topical numbing cream and injections.
This is one of our most common procedures performed. The shape, thickness and color of the clients eyeliner will be discussed at the time of the consultation. On the day of the procedure the client has the option of either wearing their eyeliner to the appointment or she can wait and have the nurse apply it when she arrives. Anesthetic can be topical numbing cream or infiltrations (injections).
The shape, thickness and color of the client's eyebrows will be discussed at the time of the consultation/procedure. On the day of the procedure the client has the option of either drawing on the eyebrows prior to arriving at the appointment or she can wait and have the nurse draw the eyebrows on for her when she arrives. Anesthetic will be injections.
