  • Also known as micropigmentation, semi-permanent makeup and cosmetic tattooing. The technique is derived from traditional tattooing, however the depth of the needle is much shallower to allow gradual fading over time. Fading is desired as it allows the artist to make changes to color and/or shape as client’s natural facial appearance or style changes.

  • Permanent makeup is not recommended if you are Pregnant, Nursing, have Keloid Scarring, Bleeding Disorders, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Currently on Accutane or Retin A, Skin Irritations Near Procedure Area, Viral Infections or Cold, Flu, Etc.

  • Unfortunately we do not accept clients who are pregnant or nursing.

  • Each procedure takes about 90 to 180 minutes.

  • The actual time depends on the client's age, skin type, lifestyle and treatment area. Results usually last between 12-18 months. It is recommended to schedule a Color Refresh every 1 - 1.5 years. All permanent makeup procedures include one Color Refresh session 2-6 months after the initial procedure.

  • We only work with high quality professional supplies from MEI-CHA. All of our PMU tools are single use, disposable and sterile.

  • We only use high quality pigment specifically formulated for permanent makeup for all procedures to ensure the best possible result. Faded salmon brows can occur if you are frequently exposed to the sun or if you have iron deficiency.

  • Lip blush is a semi-permanent form of micropigmentation. Pigment is superficially deposited into the top lip layer using a digital device. It can help to even out the tone of your natural lips, enhance colors, or even subtly correct asymmetry.
