a little about Permanent cosmetics...

The hand method of applying permanent color has existed ever since man first learned to tattoo himself with tribal markings. Ancient people of the south pacific islands and from all over the world used natural inks and hand tools to give themselves tattoos--some of them can even be seen on mummified remains today. Permanent makeup is also known as “micropigmentation.” During treatment, I use sterile, single-use needles to implant hypoallergenic pigments into the dermal layer of the skin (just below the epidermis) to enhance, and sometimes create, my client’s features. Because I place the pigment below the epidermis (which is constantly shedding and renewing itself), once the treatment area has healed (generally 4 weeks), the appearance is very soft and natural, because you are looking at the color through a thin veil of skin. My approach is extremely conservative; my goal is not to create the appearance of makeup, but simply to enhance my client’s natural beauty.

What to expect ... 

The first question that client's friends and family ask  is "Did it hurt?" The most common answers are "It wasn't bad at all", "I fell asleep", "Tweezing hurts more", I'm going back to get everything else done" 
Because this is a machine-less method, there is no loud noise or vibrating to worry about. Before treatment , I apply quality  anesthetic cream to the treatment area to ensure the most pleasant experience possible.

After our consultation on color theory, shape and placement.

With modern sterile hand tools I strategically etch a special cosmetic color just below the the surface of the skin.

Softap tools are pre-sterilized and pigments I use are safe and hypoallergenic. Most clients report a mild “stinging” sensation during the procedure and liken the immediate post-procedure sensation to a mild sunburn. Few clients experience any swelling or redness after the procedure, and

most can return to their daily activities immediately after. Finding out is the best way to know . You will have more time to do other things ,instead of worrying about your makeup.
