Jokes are made about the amount of time women spend applying makeup. For some, this is a lengthy, natural part of their daily lives. Then, some find applying cosmetics to be bothersome and too time consuming. But others have physical conditions that make applying makeup difficult (i.e. allergies, cataracts, sever arthritis, etc.). Plus, cosmetics cost money and only last temporarily. Permanent cosmetics (micropigmentation) provide a way to save time and help women gain the appearance they desire. With micropigmentation, there’s no need to spend time and money on makeup routines that only provide temporary results. Permanent cosmetics can help enhance appearance, and can also correct certain conditions. For those with little or no eyebrow hair, this procedure can provide more natural-looking results. Permanent cosmetics can also help cover up unsightly scars, and do not wash away, smudge, or fade in a few hours. The results can last for years.
With the increasing popularity of various cosmetic surgery procedures, including permanent cosmetics, it is important that the prospective patient research and understand different issues like what the procedure can and cannot treat, inherent risks, costs, and other factors.

While the information contained in this website will provide you with a good introduction to permanent cosmetics, when considering this or any other cosmetic procedure, we recommend that you consult a qualified provider with significant experience.

Is the procedure painful?
Topical anaesthetics are applied to minimize discomfort. Specialized techniques implant the pigments quickly, therefore minimizing the time.
Do I have a choice of color & style?
Of Course! An in depth consultation with your technician will be done to choose the correct color and style.
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. Although the color will look slightly darker at first, this will normalize once the healing takes place. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color. Sometimes a follow-up procedure may be required to achieve optimal results.
