Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

– Whats the difference between the Traditional Tattooing process and Permanent Makeup?

Where both procedures involve tattooing the skin, in traditional tattooing, pigment is added to the third layer of the skin, where in permanent makeup pigment is added the second layer of the skin called the Dermis, creating a final result of a soft blend of color to the tattooed area.

– Is this procedure painful?

Topical anesthetic creams/liquids are used to minimize discomfort.

– Do I have a choice of colors?

Definitely! There’s a wide spectrum if colors that you may choose from.

– Do I have a choice in the placement of pigments?

Of course. You will be fully aware during the procedure, instructing the technician where you wish the implants to be located.

– What is involved in recovery?

There will be slight swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color.
