  • What is permanent makeup? Permanent makeup (or cosmetic tattooing) uses tattoo techniques to semi-permanently add color and definition to facial features like eyebrows, lips, and eyes. Tiny bits of ink are deposited under your skin for enhancement that lasts around 1-5 years.
  • Why get it done? Saves time on makeup routines, hides grey hairs/fading color, restores lost shape from aging, covers mistakes or uneven old tattoos. It just looks gorgeous without daily effort!
  • Is it safe? We only use medical-grade pigments deemed safe for skin and rigorously sterilize equipment between clients. We complete intensive training programs with years of real-world experience. Trust us – we take every precaution to avoid infection and get the best possible results!
  • Will it look fake? Good permanent makeup blends seamlessly with YOUR unique tones and features. The key lies in artistry – avoiding that dreaded drawn-on or overfilled look. We enhance what nature gave you, aligning with current natural trends. Just you, improved!
  • What’s the cost? Pricing averages $400-$800 depending on area and extent of work. Brows alone often start around $450. Pretty competitive once you add up years of makeup costs and lash appointments! I suggest booking a free consultation to get quotes catered specifically to your beauty goals.
  • Does it hurt much? It doesn’t hurt because you are numbed 20 minutes before the procedure begins.. A bit of sensation sure, but most clients agree – not too painful overall!
  • How’s the healing/recovery? Initial healing takes 5-10 days. Treated skin scabs/peels a bit as your body integrates the ink. It WILL appear bolder at first before settling. Just follow our aftercare tips diligently – ointments, avoiding sun/water, etc. Results fully stabilize around 30 days post-procedure.

And don’t worry about other treatments either – we’ll advise on timing/combining things like Botox, peels, and laser work. Comprehensive anti-aging beauty plans are our specialty!
