Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing also known as micro-pigmentation, derma-pigmentation, and permanent cosmetics. Permanent makeup artists use tattooing techniques to apply designed that would resemble makeup. Eyelining, color enhancement of skin on the face, eyelids, lips, and eyebrows are all areas that permanent makeup is traditionally applied to. It results in enhanced facial features that would typically be done with temporary makeup. Permanent makeup is the virtually the same thing as getting a typical tattoo. A permanent makeup artist will use tattoo machines to implant ink into the dermis, just getting shy of how deep a regular tattoo will penetrate. Complications with permanent makeup include allergies to pigments, scars, skin cracking, peeling, infection, blistering, granulomas, and keloids. With permanent makeup that involves the brows, usually a powder fill like technique is used to make the brows look denser and fuller. The issue with permanent makeup for brows is its inability to create the natural and full look that microblading successfully achieves. In the worst case scenario, unknowing clients will go to a traditional tattoo artist that will outline brows and fill them with color, making a solid eyebrow look that is very unnatural and usually regrettable. These tattoos are usually much more permanent lasting decades. Whether you are looking to enhance your beauty or save time everyday. Try a new set of eyelash extensions or permanent makeup.

The lash extension procedure is soothing and painless. A full set of lashes can take between 75-120 minutes to apply, depending on the number of lashes applied. Clients lay comfortably on a massage table with their eyes closed, and the lower lashes are covered with a soothing anti wrinkle gel patch to keep the top lashes from sticking to the bottom ones. It is so non-invasive, painless and relaxing the clients often fall asleep during the application. A lash is gently applied to the base of each individual lash with a microdot of black hued glue made out of medical grade acrylic resin, so it is literally an extension of your own eyelash. This results in a very natural look, even if you choose the most dramatic, thickest look. The outcome? Gorgeous eyelashes. • Classic Lashes - 1 false lashes per real lash • Volume Lashes - 2-3 lashes per real lash • Hybrid Lashes - combination of Classic and Volume • and Lash Removal

Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment in hair like strokes in the epidermis to create the look of fuller brows. This form of tattooing is the newest trend in Semi-Permanent Makeup. The natural looking results are achieved with a sharp, hand-held manual blade. Instead of outlining and completely filling in the outline of your brows with color, microblading actually allows for the placement of hair like strokes into the skin. Whereas traditional tattooing uses needles on a rotary/coil machine to push ink 7 layers deep into the skin, microblading uses a manual blade and only targets 3 layers of skin. Because the pigment sits so superficially in the skin the strokes are sharp, crisp, and they mimic the look of real hair! Your new brows will last anywhere between 1-3 years predicated on the environmental exposure it receives. Microblading pigments are all organic and will not change color as they lose saturation over time. Thanks to the 1-3 year expected life of the semi-permanent makeup, the client can change the way their brows look as trends change.
