Permanent Make-Up

If you are a makeup spaz, like some people (ahem... I won't mention any names) maybe permanent makeup is the right thing for you. We have all tried the eyeliner and love it.

First and foremost we researched and found very reputable aesthetician. This is a must! You don't want to go to just anybody.

And although it's a bit expensive, we think it is worth the money! (Liner & Brows - $500 - $800 depending on where you live. $300-$500 for just eyeliner). You actually look decent in the morning or after swimming and other outdoorsey activities where you might have looked washed out or had black streaks running down your face. You also cut down application time everyday.

Yes, it hurt a little. But, remember the old adage "it hurts to be beautiful."

About.com says:

"Permanent cosmetic makeup is an aesthetic procedure similar to tattooing, designed to benefit anyone who wishes to have a natural enhancement to their appearance without the use of makeup. Some of the other names this process is known by include micropigmentation, dermagraphics, or micropigment implantation. It can be used for eyebrows, eyeliner above and below, eyelashes, lip lines, full lip color, scar camouflage, beauty marks, or as an imitation of hair.

Many people also choose permanent makeup for hiding burns, covering scars following surgery, replacing pigment lost from vitiligo, reconstructing areolas, or redefining weak facial features. Those who are extremely physically active but want to maintain a better appearance can do so with permanent makeup. It is especially beneficial for people who suffer from makeup allergies and can't wear traditional cosmetics.

During cosmetic implantation, tiny individual implants of pigment are deposited into the dermal layer of the skin. There are several methods used today, including the traditional tattoo machines, the pen or rotary machine and the manual or hand method.

Because of the nature of the permanent cosmetics procedure, some patients may experience some discomfort according to their pain tolerance. There are ways of reducing discomfort which you must discuss with the professional who is performing your procedure.

Before undergoing any type of elective procedure, you should feel extremely comfortable with the doctor or aesthetician performing the work. Ask to see examples of previous work and be sure the office is clean and sterile."
