The initial procedure usually takes from 1 to 2.5 hours. You can schedule for a follow-up visit to finalize the shape, color or density of the pigment, and to make sure that the procedure meets your expectations. These touch-ups are done 4-6 weeks later. Colors appear darker immediately following the procedure, but will soften and lighten during healing, which is approximately one week.
Micropigmentation lasts a long time but not forever. As you become accustomed to your new make-up, it is not uncommon to want more. You may want to freshen your make-up every 1 to 5 years (this is done at a substantial discount). The darker the color, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin. Delicate, natural colors are oftentimes more vulnerable to the effects of the Sun, swimming and breakdown by the body’s natural response.
Although everyone’s tolerence level is different, most people agree that permanent make-up procedures are far more comfortable than anticipated. Topical anesthetics are used during the treatment to provide comfort.
Your safety is of the utmost importance. Strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are followed in accordance with OSHA and the Center of Disease Control. Single use sterile needles are used with each application. We use only permanent make-up that is made in the USA and is FDA approved. A patch test is available for those with sensitive skin.
Definitely! There’s a wide spectrum of colors you may choose from.
Of course. During your consultation, design and pigment placement will be determined.
There will be slight swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color.
