Permanent Makeup is cosmetic tattooing. Also known as "Micropigmentation". Permanent cosmetics procedures are performed using various devices, including the traditional tattoo coil machines, the pen or rotary machine (includes the digital rotary machines) and the non-machine or hand device. The process includes a consultation, the application of pigment, and at least one or more follow up visits for evaluating the healed design work and color of the pigment.
Depending on your own personal tastes and the desired finished product, Permanent Cosmetic procedures can be very subtle or dramatic depending on what you are looking for. Options include:
-Eyeliner (Top and/or Bottom)
-Lip Color & Lip Liner
-Hair Imitation, Areola Repigmentation & Scar Camouflage
Permanent cosmetic 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 pigment, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance referred to as color re-enhancement or a touch-up.
The average cost per procedure varies but usually averages between $350-$800. Advanced work may be charged at $150 to $250 per hour. Many of these procedures are commonly referred to as para-medical procedures. The cost of the procedure should not be the most important issue when consulting a potential permanent cosmetic professional. Most important is the training and skill of the person performing the procedure.
The initial procedure will generally take approximately 2 to 2 ½ hours. There are records to establish; photographs to take; desired design and color to discuss; and the procedure to perform.
Often the tattooed color is not perfect after the initial procedure heals. Permanent cosmetic procedures are a process and at least one follow-up to the initial procedure should be scheduled. It is recommended that any required detail work to the original procedure be performed no sooner than 3 weeks after the original procedure.The minimum standard for follow-up detail work for lip procedures is 5 weeks. Lips have a different healing agenda than procedures performed on other parts of the face due to their delicate nature. The cited time frames will vary depending on the health profile and age of the client, but these are good minimum standards for consideration.
