Questions & Answers
Q: What is Permanent Makeup (PMU)
A: Permanent Makeup, also known as micropigmentation, is a method of inserting small amounts of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin in order to enhance facial features such as eyebrows, eyes and lips. It helps to replenish what time has taken away, gives back precious time you normally spend “putting on your face". It is also helpful to those who are allergic to conventional cosmetics, those with visual impairment, watery eyes, and those with unsteady or arthritic hands that have difficulty applying makeup.
Q: How "permanent" is it?
A: Permanent makeup is long lasting and can remain in the skin for 1 to 5 years depending on the color, placement, and your skin type, although some may not fade for as long as 10 years. Periodic touchups are recommended to maintain the desired look. You can also choose to change colors of your permanent makeup.
Q: Does it fade or requires any maintenance
A: Over time, your permanent makeup will fade due to many factors such as: natural skin exfoliation, sun exposure, medications and the use of creams/chemicals. To maintain the color and shape it is advisable to touch up the treated area every 1 to 2 years. A good indication of needing maintenance is when you start having to add to your permanent makeup with pencil or other cosmetics.
Q: Can permanent makeup be removed
A: Saline correction can significantly lighten and remove unwanted semi permanent makeup or microblading. This method is safe for removal of eyebrows, lips and even eyeliner. LI-FT® saline pigment and Ink remover is an efficient and safe method for removing poor quality or old permanent makeup.
Q: Is the procedure painful?
A:You may experience a minor and tolerable degree of scratching/pricking during the procedure. A topical anesthetic is used to reduce discomfort and promote relaxation. The treated area may be slightly tender immediately following the procedure. Tenderness will diminish within a few days post-treatment.
