Safe Treatment & Lasting Enhancement
Permanent makeup application requires pigment to be placed into the dermis, the middle layer of skin. It may appear darker when first applied but fades to a more natural look as the skin calms and heals. The micro-pigments last a long time but not forever so you may want touchups as the years go by, especially for lighter, more delicate colorations which more easily fade from sun exposure and time.
Minor discomfort from the procedure is managed with topical anesthetics and oral medication. The time needed for application of permanent makeup varies depending upon the condition of the skin and the area(s) being treated. Plan for one to three hours; your Advanced Dermatology professional will give you more details about what to expect during and after your session.
