Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which uses tattoos to give the appearance of makeup. At Body Sculpting Med Spa, we are committed to using the newest and safest technologies in order to produce the best possible results, and maintain high standards of sterilization and safety to ensure that your treatment is hygienic and that you will not experience any complications in the future.
Prior to receiving permanent makeup, we will meet with you in a one-on-one consultation to discuss the look you want to achieve and how we can help you achieve it.
When you receive permanent makeup, we will provide you with a topical anesthetic to minimize pain and discomfort. Please do not apply makeup prior to your procedure. We will then implant the pigment into your skin using a sterile surgical pen, and tattoo your permanent make up onto the top layer of your skin.
After your permanent makeup session, you should avoid sun exposure and ultra-violet exposure, especially from tanning booths, for at least 10 days. Also avoid using Alpha-hydroxy products and Rein-A during that time. Your skin may be swollen and red, though this should fade within a day or so.
Results from permanent makeup are immediate. Your makeup may seem darker at first due to color remaining in the outermost layer of skin. The colors of your permanent makeup with soften over the next 3 weeks as the healing process replaces your upper layers of skin. Your results may last for many years, though they will fade over time depending on environmental, procedural, and individual factors, such as sun exposure, the amount and color of the pigment used, and your skin tone
