Permanent Makeup

What is Permanent Makeup?

If you have faint eyebrows, no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, a cosmetic tattoo can help. A lip tattoo can reduce "lipstick bleed," and give definition to the lip line. With a colored lip tattoo, lip scars seem to disappear, plus you can kiss lipstick good-bye. After an eyeliner tattoo, you can put away your eye liner pencils for several years.

Difference between microblading and permanent makeup

Permanent makeup can be done on the eyes, lips, and brows. Microblading is solely for eyebrows. Permanent makeup is done using an electrically powered machine very similar to those regular tattoo artists use. Microblading uses a tool that does not require batteries or electricity.

How Permanent Makeup
Is Done

The process is just like getting a tattoo. Our highly skilled and seasoned practitioner applies permanent makeup by using a needle that penetrates your skin and releases pigment.

You and your artist will choose a color, based on your desires and suggestions from the makeup artist. The technician will then use a sterile surgical pen to sketch the area to be tattooed and then put an anesthetic gel on your skin.

Using a hollow, vibrating needle, the technician will apply the pigment into the top layer of the skin. Each time the needle penetrates the skin, a droplet of pigment is released into the hole the needle makes. You will feel a slight stinging sensation.

After getting permanent makeup, it takes about three weeks for the color to fade to its permanent shade.

At first, the color will likely look dark and shiny. The surrounding tissue will be swollen and red.

You can use a cold compress to reduce swelling and antibiotic ointment to help prevent infection. Strict sun avoidance and use of sunscreens that block the entire ultraviolet light A and B spectrum for several weeks is important to prevent post-inflammatory color changes. Complications are rare but can include infection or allergic reactions to the tattoo dye.

Proper sterilization, techniques, and licensing are key. At Sakoon the Spa we never compromise your safety. Call us or book online for your consultation today!
