for WOMEN

Enhancements:


We offer highly specialized micropigmentation services using revolutionary techniques designed to enhance the eyes, eyebrows and lips with color that won't wash away and fades naturally over time!



What is Micropigmentation?


The terms Permanent Makeup, Permanent Cosmetics, Eyebrow Feathering and Micro-Blading are often used when referring to Micropigmentology. The process is equated with tattooing (and regulated as such in the state of Massachusetts) because pigments are deposited into the skin in a similar fashion. However, unlike traditional tattoos performed on the body, permanent cosmetics procedures are performed with a gentler, more precise application using a modern electric pen-style hand tool as opposed to a tattoo "gun". We use triple-sterilized ion-oxide cosmetic pigments, not tattoo inks or dyes. These pigments - created specifically for micropigmentation - are much more delicate and designed to work with your skin’s own undertones. The colors are very natural-looking and can be blended to create your perfect shade. Regular touch-ups are required (every 6-12 months) to keep your permanent cosmetics looking fresh. The pigments DO fade naturally over time, yet they cannot be washed away like traditional makeup therefore they are considered to be permanent.



Micropigmentation is perfect for clients who:

• have difficulty applying their own makeup
• have busy schedules
• suffer from traditional makeup allergies
• lead active lifestyles
• have sparse or thinning eyebrows
• suffer from Alopecia (loss of hair)
• want to wake up with make up
• have pale or uneven lips
• wear contact lenses or eyeglasses


WHO SHOULD AVOID MICROPIGMENTATION?


Generally, micropigmentation is not recommended for clients with:

• Hepatitis B/C
• Pink eye
• Active herpes simplex
• Sickle cell
• HIV / Aids



CONSULTATION:


A consultation is required before any new Micropigmentation procedures can be performed. The cost of the consultation is $50.00 which is non-refundable. However, if you should decide to book a procedure, the consultation fee will be deducted from the cost of the procedure (consultation quotes are valid for 6 months).  

Please arrive on time and have a list of medications and vitamins that you are currently taking as well as your physician’s information. You will need to fill out paperwork.

Wear your regular makeup to the consultation and be sure to bring your favorite brow, eye or lip pencils with you.

We will discuss your desired results focusing on shape, style and color.

You will then have a full skin tone analysis in order to determine which pigment shades will be best to achieve your desired results. The design shape is then artistically drawn on the skin using a special makeup pencil and measuring tools, taking into account your individual facial features and desired outcome. Some clients may prefer a more vibrant or bold look while others may prefer a more subtle and natural everyday look.  Brows can be designed to mimic natural hair strokes or a soft powdered makeup effect. 

Photos are taken and pre-procedure instructions are given in order to prepare you for your appointment.




WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE:

A topical anesthetic is applied to the area in order to minimize any discomfort. You may feel a scratchy sensation during the procedure itself, but this will be short lived as the anesthetic begins working. Most clients experience minimal discomfort.

The actual procedure can take 60-90 minutes to complete (depending on the area).

Some clients may experience minor swelling at the treatment site. Cool packs are applied, if necessary to help minimize swelling. There is generally no down time.

After care instructions and products are given at this time. Photographs will then be taken.

A follow up appointment is required with any new micropigmentation procedure. This follow up is scheduled approximately 30 days (but not more than 60 days) after the initial application. This second appointment is necessary in order to perfect your permanent cosmetics. As pigments settle into the dermis, variations in pigment saturation are common and to be expected. In other words, you may not have the final result that you are hoping for after the initial appointment. Color intensity and fine-tuning of the final shape are all adjusted at the follow up appointment.

**It may be necessary to have more than one follow up with a new lip liner procedure.

A color Touch Up is typically necessary every 6-18 months depending on how much your micropigmentation has faded. This can vary according to skin type, intensity of original pigment color used and the use of anti-aging skin products and treatments. Some clients can go as long as 3 years before a touch up is required. 

*Loyalty pricing on touch-ups is only for clients who had their original procedure done with me and schedule their touch-up within 12 months of their original procedure or last touch-up. A touch-up scheduled more than 18 months after the original procedure or last touch-up may require a consultation and is considered a new procedure which will be billed at the current new procedure rate. **Correction of another artist's work is considered a new procedure and not eligible for special touch-up pricing.

WHO SHOULD AVOID PERMANENT COSMETICS?

Latisse: 

It is VERY important to stop using Latisse at least 2 months before having a permanent eyeliner procedure. Failure to do so may result in pigment migration due to the thinning of the eyelid skin. Do not start to use Latisse until at least two weeks after you have completed your final touch-up, for the same reason.

Eyelash Extensions:

​Must be removed before an eyeliner procedure can be performed.
