Permanent Makeup


What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup, or permanent cosmetics, is tattooing. Specifically, it is a cosmetic technique that implants color pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis, in order to create a lasting cosmetic result. It is performed using micro needles via a  permanent makeup pen and adheres to the same strict sanitary regulations that the field of tattooing requires.

Beauty By Design’s permanent makeup process includes a consultation, implantation of pigment, and a follow-up visit to evaluate the healed design and color of the tattoo and administer final touch ups. As with any tattoo, permanent makeup can fade over time and often requires periodic maintenance, called color refreshing.

What are the benefits of Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup can be especially desirable for those yearning for a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance. It also means less time in front of the mirror in the morning and no more smudges, smears or touch ups throughout the day!

Anyone who has difficulty applying traditional cosmetics can benefit from permanent makeup. Whether it is due to complications of a debilitating disease such as arthritis, Parkinson’s, stroke, multiple sclerosis, etc., or simply a lack of skill in applying makeup, permanent makeup can be a wonderful solution to ensure a naturally beautiful appearance each and every day.

Thanks to permanent makeup, individuals with active lifestyles can look their best without worrying about runny, smeared makeup, as can those who suffer from allergic reactions to traditional makeup. Other potential beneficiaries include individuals who have lost their hair, have trouble seeing or have experienced changes to their brows, lips or eyes due to aging.
