Permanent Cosmetics from The Spa-Midtown
HOW PERMANENT IS PERMANENT?
Permanent Cosmetics is considered permanent because once the pigment is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin it cannot be washed off like traditional cosmetics. However, fading can and will occur.
When the color is freshly applied it should always look "too dark". After the healing process is complete there will be an obvious loss of color. After the initial application of color, a follow up procedure may be necessary to achieve the correct level of color saturation.
Generally after the initial application and follow up of Permanent MakeUp are complete, the longevity of pigment in the skin is 3 to 5 years. The pigment we use will fade over time because of many factors such as skin exfoliation (both natural and chemically induced), sun exposure and medication.
Sun exposure is the major reason pigment fades. Daily use of a sunscreen and an effort to avoid sun exposure will help. Permanent Make Up will look best when the Original Technician maintains it every year, or as needed, depending on the clients pigment retention.
Permanent Cosmetics is not a carbon-based tattoo. A tattoo stays with the recipient for a lifetime. Permanent Cosmetics last 3 to 5 years which allows the client the flexibility to modify their color and design as their taste and age change.
Permanent Eyeliner- Women who have had the procedure comment that if they would have known how convenient it is not to worry with daily eyeliner application, they would have had the procedure done long ago!
Permanent Lip Color- A natural appearing color enhancement is what we try to achieve. This way lipstick can be worn when a color change or a more dramatic look is desired, but the best part is that lipstick isn't needed to look great anytime.
Permanent Eyebrows- Eyebrows look natural and won't smudge or smear off.
