Permanent makeup is a cosmetic treatment in which a specialist applies a tattoo in a design that resembles makeup. Many women are electing to have their eyebrows filled in and shaped with permanent makeup. Others find that permanent makeup can help to reduce the appearance of scarring. It is also a common treatment after mastectomy procedures to create an areola.
Your technician spends a lot of time consulting with you about the look that you want and the best shapes and colors to suit your face and your expectations. The treatment itself takes around a half-hour, and you may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired look. Solaris Laser & Skin Care’s policy is to build slowly because once the permanent makeup is applied, it can’t be removed.
If you have permanent makeup done to fill in and shape your eyebrows, you may notice that your brows are darker than you anticipated, but this hyperpigmentation fades within a few days as your skin heals from the treatment. You are left with a natural, but more dramatic, appearance. The Solaris Laser & Skin Care therapists consult with you and make suggestions to complement the shape of your face and your complexion before applying any permanent makeup. Their suggestions help you to look fresh and awake, not like you are made up for a party.
Permanent cosmetics do fade slightly over time, and some clients have touch-up treatments every 12-18 months. Each client has a slightly different experience, depending on their skin tone, their skin texture, and the colors they select for their permanent makeup. With regular touch-ups, you can also change the color slightly over time.
Yes, permanent makeup is suitable for all skin tones and textures. Women of color often find that permanent makeup is very effective for their skin.
When you have permanent makeup applied to your eyebrows, the technician most often suggests a shape that is very close to your natural brow arch. As a result, you keep most of your eyebrows, which helps to create a natural appearance. You can tweeze, wax, or thread any hairs outside of your preferred arch, just as you would maintain your eyebrows without permanent makeup.
