The idea of breezing out of the house with a selfie-ready face, no effort required, sounds like a dream. But, is permanent makeup really the right choice? If you’re tempted by the thought of hitting the snooze button once more in the morning and cutting your morning grooming time down to a few minutes, it just might be the answer. First, it’s important to understand how the process works, what it entails and what you can expect.
Is Permanent Makeup Really Permanent?
While these procedures are commonly referred to as “permanent makeup” or “cosmetic tattooing,” neither definition quite fits. Micropigmentation is applied similarly to traditional tattoos, substituting a more subtle pigment for the garish, bright inks used in body art. How long your semipermanent cosmetics will last is dependent on a number of factors, including skill of application and the diligence of after-care. They won’t last forever, but they can last for a very long time under proper care.
Advances in semipermanent makeup and the quality of pigments are designed specifically to impart a subtle, natural-looking but still high-impact look without the unflattering color change over decades of wear. As they begin to fade, they’re designed to do so gradually and evenly.
Is Permanent Makeup Worth the Process?
Most people associate tattooing and similar procedures with excruciating pain. While semipermanent makeup is applied similarly to a tattoo, we take a different approach to pain management. Numbing agents are used to minimize discomfort for a less stressful, more rewarding experience. Because your health and safety are as important as the look you walk away with, we take particular care sanitizing stations before and after each procedure. All needles and application kits are single-use, disposable items discarded immediately, so you know you’re getting brand new, sterile supplies.
