FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
WHAT IS PERMANENT COSMETICS?
Permanent cosmetics, also known as micro-pigmentation, is a form of cosmetic tattooing used to enhance facial features or as a finishing touch to surgical procedures. The procedure involves a precision application of micro insertions of natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin using a disposable sterile probe. The advanced form of micropigmentation used imitates the most perfectly applied make-up, defining brows, eyes, and lips. The state of the art technique is medically proven and recommended by doctors after surgery or scaring, to bring a natural appearance to the affected area. Whatever procedure is desired, permanent make-up can create a cosmetic or natural look. Because it is permanent, many women elect to have a natural look and dress it up with traditional make-up for an evening look.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM PERMANENT COSMETICS?
Men as well as women. Busy people with little time. Anyone who desires the freedom and convenience of daily cosmetics application. Those who are physically incapable of applying make-up. Athletic people or people with oily skin. Burn survivors or people with scars in their skin. Men & women that need correction of asymmetrical facial features. Men & women who wish to look their best at all times. Alopecia sufferers
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
The use of topical anesthetics minimizes discomfort.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE?
Color: there is a wide spectrum of colors to choose from. You will instruct the certified technician on how you wish the cosmetics to look.
Lips: Can be made fuller, and color enhaned. We can correct their shape, using our revolutionary cosmetic techniques. When definition has been lost through the aging process, we reverse the effects with naturally beautiful results.
Eyebrows: You never have to use a pencil again. Our technique has been perfected to create a soft-penciled look. By using hair strokes that mimic your natural hair, we can make your brows look fuller, longer, and perfectly shaped.
Eyes: We can make small eyes look bigger and emphasize your eye color with our advanced techniques. You can choose from a subtle natural look that can replicate the look of hundreds of tiny lashes or a more defined eyeliner look.
Dramatically improved effects can be achieved by emphasizing the shape and definition of eyes and brows.
RECOVERY - WHAT IS INVOLVED?
You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. In most cases there would be a slight redness of the skin and maybe slight swelling. Complete healing takes approximately one to six weeks. Within that time the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color for most people.

The Intradermal Pigmentation procedure can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows, especially those who use a pencil would love the procedure and the time saved by not applying cosmetics, enabling you to go swimming, play tennis, or wipe their forehead, without the embarrassment of having ones eyebrow smudge off. Alopecia sufferers are pleasantly surprised at how natural it looks. The eyeliner has a natural look, mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes, which is poplar with both men and women. We work closely with medical professionals (e.g. plastic surgeonts, dermatologists, ophthalmologists, oncologists and podiatrists) to extend the benefits of permanent make up to men and women who suffer from visual impairments, physical disfigurements, allergies to traditional make up, alopecia, and any loss of eyebrow hair will greatly benefit from permanent make up. Ophthalmologists recommend these procedures for those who are allergic to conventional cosmetics, and for those who have problems wearing contact lenses.
It has been said that the eyes are the window to the soul. Not only do they make a face more expressive; eyes can be the most standout feature on a visage, if they are played to the hilt. Even the legendary Cleopatra never set foot outside without dramatic, kohi-rimmed eyes. The permanent cosmetics procedure for lip color is beautiful! This procedure can "appear" to change the size, and shape of the lip. This procedure also helps to prevent lipstick from bleeding into the skin. It camouflages facial lines surrounding the lips as a result of aging. A soft pink color (newborn baby look) is popular for those wanting the natural look. Any other lip color desired can be achieved.

Microblading / Microneedling
Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in eyebrows or even those who just want to add a slight arch. The results are a natural, undetectable fringe. During the microblading process we use a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one. It's an extremely meticulous process. The results will last for up to three to four years before beginning to fade. It is important to have a technician that pays extreme attention to detail. This is not a rushed procedure, and should not be completed in under an hour. Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. Some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it's relatively painless. The best part about the technique is that there is no down time. Your new set of brows will be ready for a selfie immediately after the process. A follow-up appointment is required depending on the skin type and recovery time of each individual. The healing process is different for everyone, and it takes between 25 and 30 days.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments necessary varies with each person. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, normal physiologic changes, certain medications and stress influence the treatment program for each individual. It is very important to adhere to the recommended treatment schedule to achieve optimum results in the shortest period of time.
IS ELECTROLYSIS UNCOMFORTABLE?
While electrolysis is a very comfortable procedure, it is impossible to destroy hair growth tissue without any sensation, because each hair follicle is surrounded by its own network of nerve endings. The sensation which may be felt is assurance that destructive activity is taking place. Even though some parts of the body are more sensitive then others, adjustments can be made which will help to make the treatment remain comfortable.
CAN ELECTROLYSIS BE PERFORMED ANYWHERE ON THE BODY?
Unwanted hair can be safely removed from most body areas. The most common areas include the hairline, bridge of nose, eyebrows, upper and lower lip, cheeks, sideburns, chin, neck, shoulders, arms, underarms, breasts, abdomen, bikini line, legs, back, and chest. The inside of the ears and nose should not be treated.
DOES ELECTROLYSIS DAMAGE THE SKIN?
When a competent electrologist using up-to-date equipment and current techniques performs electrolysis, there shouldn't be ANY skin damage. Immediately following treatment, there may be slight redness and/or swelling which usually disappears within a few hours. Occasionally, small whiteheads or minuscule scabs may occur. It is important to remember that scabs are a part of the normal healing process and will not cause any permanent damage if they are not picked off. Your electrolgist will discuss specific post-treatment care to promote proper healing.
ARE ALL HAIRS ELIMINATED IN ONE TREATMENT?
Deep, coarse hairs cannot always be eliminated with one treatment; thus, breaking down the hair germ cells may require additional treatments. During the course of treatment and due to the cyclic nature of hair growth, new hairs as well as hairs emerging from a dormant phase, will be treated and may be visible at the same time as finer reqrowth hairs.
WHAT IS THE NORMAL GROWTH CYCLE OF HAIR?
All hairs have differing cycles of growth activity and are not visible on the surface of the skin at the same time. Hair normally grows for its usual cycle and then naturally sheds and replaces itself. Following active growing periods, hair follicles go into dormant phase. This period of dormancy may last for an indefinite period of time, however, replacement hairs usually appear within 3 to 12 months. The appearance of these coarse replacement hairs from dormant hair follicles should not be mistaken as re-growth from previously treated follicles.
WHAT INFECTION CONTROL PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN?
The American Electrology Association (AEA), with the assistance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), developed national Infection Control Standards that include sterilization of all electrology instruments which may have parenteral contact. Pre-sterilized, single-use disposable needles are recommended. The standards are consistent with standard precautions safety which includes hand washing and use of a fresh pair of disposable gloves for each treatment. Your electrologist will thoroughly discuss this important issue with you.
WHAT IF I'M PREGNANT?
Although electrolysis has never been proven harmful to pregnant women, it is suggested the advice of your physician be sought before treatment. This office will only use Thermolysis in pregnant women.
What is Eyebrow Tinting?
Tinting intensifies the color of the brows or if you have light eyebrows, it can really help to define your face framing your eyes (and means no more eyebrow pencils). The formula is very gentle and is applied for the necessary amount of time to develop. After the hair has achieved the desired color, your brows are cleansed to remove all traces of the formula.
What is Eyebrow Shaping?
Shaping the brows can either be done through plucking or electrolysis, depending on the amount of hair. Plucking is quicker, although not permanent. After the treatment, a soothing lotion is applied to cool and calm the skin.
What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are a fun and safe alternative to mascara or false lashes.
Consumers should make sure that the lash extension professional is certified before choosing this service.
