Will it Hurt? How Long Will it Take?
Most client's would report that permanent makeup is either painless or a minor discomfort. There are topical, over the counter anesthetics that knowledgeable permanent makeup technicians use regularly and Denise is adamant about using these topicals. She will begin every procedure by placing a topical anesthetic onto the area or areas that will be receiving the pigment from 25-35 minutes, depending on the product and location. This will limit the discomfort associated with the first needle pass, but even that pass is very mild. These products not only reduce the pain to almost zero, but the epinephrine also helps limit swelling. The initial procedure will generally take approximately 1 hr 45 min to 2 hours; there are forms to fill out, photographs will be taken, desired design and color to discuss,numbing before the procedure begins, the procedure to perform, and the aftercare requirements to discuss. Follow up and/or the Perfecting Visit procedures usually do not require the same amount of time.
What is Permanent Makeup and is it REALLY Permanent?
Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or colorant (pigment) in general, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance referred to as color re-enhancement or color refreshing. Longevity varies from person to person depending on their life style (sun exposure), the color(s) used for the permanent cosmetic procedure, and are also thought to be affected by topical products applied to the skin. Permanent makeup is essentially a similar to tattoo, in which makes it appear as if you're always wearing makeup. The pigment is applied with a micro-needle (s) and it is recommended that you return for touch-up visits every 1 - 2 years.
