Frequently Asked Qestions

Micropigmentation, or permanent make up, is an innovative cosmetic procedure that enables both men and women to enhance the shape of their eyebrows, hairline, lips, eyes, and more, through the process of depositing pigment into the skin’s dermal layer.

This smudge-free treatment lasts for years and is a great way to restore confidence and self esteem in those with alopecia, hair loss, chemotherapy patients, and more.

Permanent make-up is great for both males and females who wish to improve the appearance of their hairline, eyebrows, lips, and more.

It also great for those with allergies to traditional make-up.

Those with physical limitations, such as severe arthritis, may also benefit from permanent make-up. People who wear glasses and contact wearers with sensitive eyes may also be good candidates for this procedure.

Additionally, since permanent make up can also be used for medical purposes, known as dermapigmentation, it can also be used to treat scars, correct cleft lips, and restore areola pigmentation in those who have undergone chemotherapy or breast construction surgery.

After your first treatment you will be invited back within 30 to 60 days.

This visit is for a touch up treatment after your first treatment has healed any corrections needed will be done on this day.
