What is Permanent Cosmetics?

     You have probably read about or seen on television the topic of permanent cosmetics, also known as micropigmentation.  Permanent cosmetics is a form of cosmetic tattooing used to enhance facial features and as a finishing touch to surgical procedures.  The procedure involves a needle which inserts pigment under the skin.  Permanent cosmetics are now used for a wide variety of make up enhancements such as beautifully arched eyebrows, soft or bold eyeliner/eye shadow and natural or more dramatic lip liner/full lip color.  Before any procedure a topical cream is used to numb the area making the procedure virtually painless.  

The Benefits

     Imagine never having smeared or disappearing make up again!  More and more women are discovering the benefits of this exciting procedure such as the professional who wants a "worry free" fresh look, avoiding the hassle and time of reapplication.  Older women with poor eyesight and unsteady hands find permanent cosmetics very beneficial.  Women who exercise, travel, swim or camp want to look their best even under the most active conditions.

     Ophthalmologists recommend procedures for those who are allergic to conventional make up or wear contact lenses.  After surgical procedures, women can use permanent color techniques to camouflage scars or to enhance reconstructive surgery.  

     What could be better than to wake up in the morning looking as lovely as you did the evening before?  Many woman chose to have a natural look and dress it up with traditional make up when they want a more dramatic evening look.. But, what ever procedures are desired, permanent make up can create a polished or subtle look.  

Choosing your Technician

     Modern permanent cosmetics is fairly recent, but the concept dates back to ancient Egypt.  Over the last 12 years, the industry has grown rapidly in popularity.  However, because this is such a new field, you must do your research before choosing a technician.

     To choose a technician go for an interview at their office.  Ask about their background.  Do they keep up with their continuing education?  Do they belong to associations relating to this field?  Evaluate the cleanliness of their office and determine if they use heat sterilization on all equipment. Do they run a professional practice?  Ask to see before and after pictures of their work.  Tell the technician what you are interested in having done and listen to their ideas.  Did they listen and properly respond to your requests?  Do you feel comfortable communicating with them?  And finally, are they licensed by the Texas Health Department?  Prices may range from $225-$495 for a single procedure.  Never choose a technician based on price alone.  Base your decision on their competence.  

Permament Cosmetics FAQ's

You may have heard about permanent cosmetics and wondered what it is all about.  Let me take this time to answer some of your questions.

"What does 'permanent' mean?"  

Permanent cosmetics last for many years.  The post-care procedures are very important to the longevity of the color pigmentation and penetration.  This is a permanent procedure.  You may see some fading over time, as with all tattoos.  Again, the importance is how well you take care of the treated area. 

We apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to the procedure and a more activated cream during the procedure. 

"How long does the procedure take?" 

Each new procedure takes one full hour.  If you choose to have 2-3 procedures done at the same time as many clients do, please allow 2-3 full hours.  All individual touch-ups take one hour.  Two touch-ups take 1 1/2 hours and three touch-ups take 2 1/2 hours.

"Does it really make a big enough difference in my appearance and beauty routine?"

Absolutely!  If you apply make-up on a daily basis, you already know the difference it makes in your personal appearance.  The "beauty" of permanent cosmetics is that it takes the place of your normal make-up application and routine.

"Every day, I get up, look in the mirror, and see a beautiful face.  My eyeliner doesn't flake or rub off throughout the day.  My eyebrows are perfectly shaped and filled-in.  My lips always look full and gorgeous.  I am very happy I chose to have permanent cosmetics applied by Laura!" -One happy client! 

"Do men have permanent cosmetic procedures?"

Yes!  Laura has many male clients.  Some have a condition known as "Alopecia," which is the loss of hair.  Laura makes small hair strokes on the brow area-making it look more like a natural brow.  Other cosmetic procedures are performed on the male clients such as lash enhancement, which is tiny little dots placed between the lashes, eyelash perms, eyelash tints, eyebrow tints, and more.  Call us to inquire about your requested procedures.
