– FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS –
How long does it last?
Permanent makeup is a tattoo. Each person responds differently depending on the type of procedure and their specific skin type and skin conditions. Permanent makeup fades over time, especially when exposed to the sun, chlorine, and some medications. We will discuss aftercare in detail to ensure the best retention and lasting results.

How long will it take to recover?
Some clients choose to avoid social plans the first few days as there may be swelling, intensity of the color, or the appearance of “wet” ointments on the treated area. You can click here for Post Procedure Information, though we will discuss aftercare procedures with you in detail and send you home with any aftercare products and instructions needed to care for your makeup and assist in healing and comfort.
Is it painful?
The anesthetic creams and gels that are used are applied to the desired area before and during the procedure assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. For lip color procedures, a dental block may be arranged if appropriate. Most people experience some discomfort and explain it like a “tickling or tingling”, but express that it was easier than they thought it would be. My sincere desire is for this to be a good experience for you.
What if I have health concerns?
You may have special needs for permanent makeup such as scars, vitiligo, alopecia or health problems. You may need your physician’s release in order to undergo testing and/or procedures that you desire. This is an extra measure of protection for your benefit.
What if I need an MRI?
By all means get the needed MRI. Temporary tingling, redness and swelling and a transient burning sensation have been reported for some with eyeliner tattoos although rare. Advise your physician that you have a cosmetic tattoo. He or she may wish to place a wet cotton round over your eyes during the MRI to avoid any discomfort.
