The most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is a younger, refined, enhanced appearance.

Permanent makeup is essentially a tattoo that makes you appear as if you are always wearing makeup! A topical numbing cream is applied to the area before the technician applies the pigment into the second dermal layer (body tattoos go into the 3rd layer) with a small tattoo machine designed for facial micropigmentation. The entire healing process takes four weeks at which point a touchup will be done to assure even pigmentation and desired results.
