We’ve all had that morning where we wish we could just spend a few extra minutes getting pampered. But many of us have busy lives and are crunched for time. This is where permanent makeup comes in handy. Permanent makeup is a process that helps women alleviate the hassle of having to put their makeup on every day. It is a serious cosmetic procedure, so only trusted provider should be asked to complete the process.
At Absolute Smile, we now offer permanent makeup procedure at our Bustleton Avenue office location. We are proud to offer this service so that many of our clients can experience the beautiful looks they desire on a regular basis. If you’re wondering how permanent makeup works, we can fill you in on the details.
Permanent makeup mimics the look of makeup that has been freshly applied. For example, permanent makeup can be used for lipstick, lip liner, eyebrow pencils and eyeliner. It’s performed through a process known as micropigmentation. A tattoo pen is used to insert permanent ink into the skin. The procedure itself takes about thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the desired results.
Doctors use a local anesthetic to numb the area that is having permanent makeup applied. As with a tattoo, the color will initially appear brighter and darker but will fade gradually over time. Most people experience swelling for about two to five days after the procedure. The permanent makeup site will then crust over and heal.
If you’re interested in permanent makeup, you’ll want to consider the costs. Each procedure usually runs between $300 to $1,000. Prices vary depending on the quality of the work, the credentials of the person performing the work and the number of areas on the body that need to be worked on.
Most people find that they appreciate the benefits provided by permanent makeup. For example, you can swim, shower and wake up still looking great. You can also wake up you’re your makeup ready to go every day and save time that used to be spent applying lip liner, eyeliner and lipstick. Those who have undergone chemotherapy or have been burned may also benefit from permanent makeup. Those with arthritis also experience benefits with permanent makeup.
