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.

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.
