What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup is a modern application of the age-old art of tattooing. Permanent makeup provides a safe, natural looking alternative or enhancement to a daily makeup routine. Pigments are permanently inserted into the dermis of the skin resulting in a lasting, waterproof color that remains fresh and beautiful no mater what your activity. Kathleen Czerhoniak, our permanent makeup specialist, uses the highest grade products and equipment to create that most natural, beautiful and long lasting results.

Why Permanent Makeup?
Age-related loss of pigment in the lips or hair loss in the brow area are two major reasons that clients choose treatment. Permanent makeup is able to take away years from the face by rejuvenating and highlighting individual features.
We understand that women and men want to look their, best regardless of age; however, over time the skin begins to lose the natural pigmentation and definition that was enjoyed in youth. We have many permanent cosmetic options for enhancing one’s appearance such as replacing lost color in lips, defining lash lines and restoring the appearance of natural hair in the brows.
Often, clients would like to reduce the time it takes to get ready in the morning. Permanent makeup is an excellent solution for time-strapped individuals who prefer to not be caught “without their face on” during early morning gym trips or errand runs.
Will the color fade?
Colors used in micro pigmentation are cosmetic colorants, and, like all colors, they fade over time. It’s similar to what would happen if you left a colored rug out in the sun for a week or two. All color fades. Clients need to think of permanent makeup as a “low maintenance” procedure, not a “no maintenance” procedure. You should plan to return every few years for a color boost to restore the effect of the desired color and hue temperature.
Does it Hurt?
Over-the-counter and prescription anesthetic agents are used before and during the procedures for comfort. Most people report minimal discomfort.
Is permanent makeup less effective with certain skin types or ethnicities?
The age, health and undertone of a clients skin are all very important factors to consider before proceeding with a permanent cosmetic procedure.
How do I choose the right artist?
It is important to make sure to go onto the American Academy of Micro pigmentation website to find out if your artist is board certified. Ask to see photos of previous procedures.
