Everything You Need to Know About Permanent Makeup

If you love the look of freshly applied makeup but hate the time and money you spend on the daily ritual, permanent makeup may be the perfect solution for you. This totally customizable treatment allows you to choose the look you want to see every morning the moment you roll out of bed. 

When you get permanent makeup applied by medical and artistic professionals like our team here at Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics, you can face every morning, evening, and in-between time looking natural, fresh, and beautiful. 

Understanding permanent makeup

Technically, permanent makeup is a tattoo on your face, but rather than inking a message or image, this tattoo adds subtle (or not-so-subtle) color where your natural hue has faded. 

We inject the color just under the surface of your skin, so the shades and tints show through and look like your natural (yet enhanced) skin tone or makeup, not like a tattoo at all. Although it’s called “permanent” makeup, it’s more accurate to call it “semi-permanent” because it doesn’t last forever. But touch-ups are easy every few years, and the time and money you save make it a smart and simple solution.

Permanent makeup is for everyone

If permanent makeup sounds like something for extremists, think again. People of all walks of life choose permanent makeup for its convenience, beauty, and savings. 

Here are just a few of the reasons to consider permanent makeup:

Clearly, permanent makeup addresses concerns for a lot of folks who normally don’t seem like the tattoo type. Whether you relate to one (or more) of the above categories, or you just want to give it a try, you’re not alone if you choose permanent makeup. 

Features that look great with permanent makeup

Wherever you apply blush, liner, shadow, or stain is a great place for permanent makeup. We can enhance your:

We can also help hide scars from injury or acne and birthmarks that make your skin tone blotchy and uneven. 

What to expect when you get permanent makeup

Getting permanent makeup doesn’t hurt, but it can make you feel a little uncomfortable. First, we make sure your skin is numb by applying a topical anesthetic. And while you don’t feel any physical pain, some people feel a little anxious about the process occurring so close to their eyes. We encourage you to relax and think about the incredible benefits of your permanent makeup.

We promise you won’t feel a thing as we gently insert the tiniest needle just under the surface of your skin. Our experts are highly experienced in the art and science of permanent makeup application, so you can rest assured that your face is in good hands. 

After your treatment is done, feel free to go about business as usual for the rest of the day. Other than a little redness and puffiness that subside in a few hours, you have no reason to change your plans. 

It takes about a week for your permanent makeup to settle in and relax into its true color, so expect to see slightly more vibrant tones for the first five days or so. 

Where to get your permanent makeup done

Permanent makeup is more than just a “makeover,” it’s a serious treatment that requires deft hands, extensive knowledge, and medical expertise. And that’s what we offer here at Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
