permanent make-up 'permanent'?
Your permanent cosmetic
make-up procedure depends upon the technician, the products used for the
application, how deep the cosmetic tattoo was placed into the skin, how
well you take care of the procedural area while it is healing, and
whether or not you use a total sun block after the procedure area has
completely healed. All these factors will determine how long the
procedure will last. Colour enhancers are also suggested 'as needed'
to keep the procedure looking 'fresh and new'.
I have permanent make-up if I am allergic to regular make-up?
The client who is
allergic to traditional facial make-up is the perfect candidate for a
permanent make-up procedure. The technician will patch test you in the
area of the desired procedure, wait 6-8 weeks, and proceed as
will I look like immediately following my procedure?
Your procedure area may be slightly
swollen and irritated. This is called a 'wheal and flare' reaction.
The area may also be darker for a few days while it is healing because
of the lymph and blood droplets that may have been brought to the
surface during your application. While your procedure area is healing,
it must go through three phases before you will experience your final
results. The procedure area must first heal, peel and fade. Final
results may take 4-8 weeks to completely heal.
procedures are safe if the technician has had a proper education and
follows all of OSHA and CDC guidelines. Single use, sterile needles
and machine parts are used for each client and then properly disposed

After completion, you will receive a
post-treatment care instructional sheet. The overall success of your
procedure is contingent upon you following these instructions. A
follow-up visit will be scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks from your
initial application. This is to fine tune and touch-up any area of the
skin that may have expelled the pigment.
a person on medication have a permanent make-up procedure?
Clients on medication should obtain a release
from their physician prior to any permanent cosmetic make-up
procedure. The release should be written on the physicians
prescription notepad and sent to the technician's office prior to the
start of any procedure.
I have to take any precautions prior to a lip procedure?
If you have ever had a cold sore or fever
blister, you must take an antiviral pre-procedure. Your physician may
prescribe Valtrex, Famvir or Zovirax. Herpetic outbreaks usually occur
on the 3rd day post procedure and taking antivirals will lessen your
chance of an outbreak. If you do experience a herpetic outbreak, you
may lose the implanted pigment colour in the area of the outbreak.
