Is it safe?
Yes,the procedure is quite safe. All
equipment is auto clave sterilized to the set
standards of the Center for Disease Control. All
needles and supplies used for the procedure are
disposable single use only. The pigments used in
the procedures have been used since the 80’s and
haven’t had any reported allergic
is also MRI safe.
What if I change my mind
These procedures are permanent. However, you can
alter almost any small change in either color or
placement of color with a second procedure. If
you desire, the whole procedure can be removed
safely. We recommend always selecting soft,
natural colors and styles so that you always
have prettier face, yet you can still add your
own makeup should you desire a more dramatic
look for evening or special occasions.
Is it comfortable?
These procedures are of a skin invasive nature
and therefore you may experience some mild
discomfort. We use a topical anesthetic
preparation to dull the sensation. Each
individual will experience a different level of
sensitivity, however most describe the procedure
application as a vibrating or tickling feeling.
The results are well worth the minimal time the
How long does it take?
The initial procedure will generally take
approximately 1hour to 11/2 at the most. If a
follow up procedure is needed, it will take
about one hour, about half the time of the
What are the costs for permanent makeup?
The average cost per procedure varies somewhat,
but usually averaging between $300-$600
depending on the area being pigmented and the
desired amount of color requested. The cost of
the procedure should not be the most important
issue when consulting a technician. The skill
and experience of the technician is most
important as your face is your image and you
would want the best results you can get. This
is not the time to hunt for a bargain as you
will get what you pay for.
What happens as I
The colors will slowly fade over time. We
strongly recommend using a sun block of at least
30 SPF on the areas you have pigmented. The
advantage to the slow fading is that as you age
you may want the color to be softer than what
you had a few years back. If desired, you can
come in for enhancement. You will still have
color as the pigment will always be there, only
How is Permanent Makeup
There are several methods and machines on the
market to apply the permanent makeup pigments to
the skin. More important than the machine is the
artistic ability of the technician and their
ability to enhance features naturally to
stimulate soft cosmetics and never look harsh.
At Permanent Solutions we use a digital machine
for precise placement of color.
We first cleanse the area to be pigmented. We
then draw on the shape of the area to be
pigmented with make up pencils so that the
individual is part of the decision making
process of how much color and exactly where it
will be placed. We then lightly apply pigment to
the shape we have drawn and start building up
the color until we have reached the desired
results. We build the permanent make up together
to make sure it is exactly the way you want your
make up to look.
There are several techniques used depending on
the individual's preference in results. The
permanent makeup options are anything from a
soft, feathery enhancement to a more dramatic
make up look..
