Permanent makeup - $550
Permanent makeup is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing technique where a hand held micro-needle tool is used to apply pigment directly into the skin, creating natural yet gorgeous looking eyebrows, lips or eyeliner. It is an excellent option for clients who want to fully construct, reconstruct, define, cover gaps/scars, or fill in sparse brows.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THR PROCEDURE & HOW DOES IT WORK?
Plan for your appointment to be 1.5 - 2 hours long. The first half of your appointment will consist of filling out paperwork, taking pre procedure photos, discussing goals, mapping out a foundational pattern for your desired brow or lips shape and choosing your ideal color of pigment. The second half consists of numbing with a topical anesthetic, shading, discussion of aftercare procedure, application of post procedure creams and taking post procedure photo's. At the end of your session you will set a date for your 4-6 week follow up session.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST & WHAT IS INCLUDED?
The current rate for the permanent makeup procedure is $350 for the initial treatment and $200 the 4-6 weeks follow up touch up.
SHOULD I MAKE A CONSULTATION?
Yes, it is definitely recommended. Please note that the cost of the consultation is $50 and is aplicable towards a full treatment. Please note that all though this is semi-permanent, it will be on your face until it naturally fades. I advise every client to take time to consider every aspect of the procedure before comitting to it. You will have a better outcome if you are confident this is a procedure that is best for you.
HOW LONG DOES THE PIGMENT LAST?
Due to varying skin types and life styles, the pigment retention lasts anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. After which the pigment will completely fade if left untouched. Touch up sesssions are recommended in 6 month and or 1 year increments.
DOES IT HURT?
During permanent makeup procedure I definitely use the highest dose of numbing creme possible for the comfort of my clients. With that said, there are many levels of pain tolerence. The overall concensus is that it is bearable. It is recommended to take Tylenol 1 hour before arriving for treatment. Aslo a special note for women - try not to schedule the procedure near or during your monthly cycle as it increases sensitivity.
