Permanent makeup is a cosmetic procedure involving the placement of a mineral based pigment into the skin for cosmetic or aesthetic reasons.
A SofTaptm technique is used in which pigment is carefully placed into the upper layer of the dermis for a natural look. With the assistance of the esthetician, a color choice will be made by the patient to give the most natural and aesthetically pleasing look.
Some individuals choose permanent makeup procedures to avoid the time consuming task of daily application. However, makeup also has a number of medically related applications. For instance, permanent makeup may be used to alter the appearance of the areola after breast surgery to a more "natural" look. Individuals who experience vision or coordination difficulties may choose a permanent makeup procedure to bypass obstacles in the application of cosmetics.
The appearance of permanent makeup may change over time. Multiple treatments are typically required for best results and to maintain color.
To determine if permanent cosmetics are the right decision for you, please schedule a complimentary consultation with our esthetician.
