Common Questions

Are Permanent Cosmetics Permanent?
Technically, permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the dermal layer. Fading can and often does occur requiring periodic maintenance.

What is healing like?
There will be mild swelling of the area you have pigmented for 24-48 hours. Eyes will look like you had been crying. Brows will look slightly darker with hardly any swelling. Lips will look as if you had collagen injections (puffy or full). The color will be darker for 4-5 days. You will see a light flaking of color revealing the permanent color under the skin which is a softer tone of the initially applied color.

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 reactions. It is also MRI safe.

What if I change my mind afterwards?
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 procedure takes.

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 initial procedure.

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 get older?
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 softer.

How is Permanent Makeup done?
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..
