Permanent Makeup

Who is a candidate for permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is just like traditional makeup but long-lasting. It’s a great option if you have beauty marks, scars or burns, hair loss, or poor vision that makes it challenging to apply makeup on your own. Permanent makeup is also a convenient option for people who have an active lifestyle, busy schedule, or allergies to ingredients in makeup.

How long does permanent makeup last?

Permanent makeup is long-lasting but can fade over the course of a few years. The makeup technique applies pigment at a very shallow level and not as deeply as a tattoo. A shallower level of application makes for the most natural look.

Avoid using facial products with the active ingredients of retinol (vitamin A) or vitamin C as they can fade your permanent makeup faster than normal. Sun exposure also contributes to the degradation of your permanent makeup.

Several providers at Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics are certified in using permanent makeup to enhance your appearance and your self-esteem. They have an artistic eye and an understanding of facial structure, so your permanent makeup is applied in a way that looks natural but beautiful.

Where is permanent makeup applied?

Permanent makeup uses tattoo ink to give the look of everyday cosmetics. Semi-permanent results help shave time off of your morning routine. can be applied to your lips, eyes, and brows. “Eyeliner” enhances your eyes’ appearance on either or both the upper and lower rim. You can get penciling around thin brows with brow microblading or powder brow.

Does it hurt to get permanent makeup?

Prior to the application of your permanent makeup, you receive a numbing cream in the treatment areas. The needles used to apply the makeup pigment are tiny and fine but do come quite close to your eyes and other sensitive areas of your face. This can create a sense of unease. You’ll be asked to close your eyes during the procedure to avoid emotional discomfort.

Should I schedule downtime after a permanent makeup application?

Expect to have slight redness or swelling around your eyes and lips, depending on your treatment. At first, the coloration of the makeup will be quite noticeable, but it mellows within 5-7 days.

You don’t need to schedule official downtime and can work or do your daily activities, but you might want to avoid getting the makeup around the time of major events like a wedding or reunion, so you have time for it to settle.
