PMU F.A.Q

Constantly being exposed to UV light as well as all kinds of anti-aging, exfoliating and brightening skincare certainly is part of the equation.

The techniques that are used for permanent cosmetics for the eyebrow and lip area are to fade with a purpose. This allows the client to periodically “refresh their look” as they age or their styles change.

The pigment particles DO stay in the skin permanently which is why it is called “permanent makeup”.

In many other countries because the eyebrow does not stay exactly the same from day one, and maintenance is required they prefer to call it “semi-permanent.” The pigment used within the eyelashes is much more permanent because of the color formulation and lip colors are somewhere in the middle. The pigment longevity is not an exact science as there are many factors that can increase or decrease longevity. The client is never “locked” into continuing services with their permanent cosmetics they can simply allow them to fade away and use the gradually disappearing pigment as a guide for their pencil with a perfectly symmetrical shape. Alternatively, you can plan on coming for another service every one to four years to brighten them up or alter your shape.

The easy answer is “No”. However…This is a tattooing procedure. Needles are used to place pigment in the skin.We use topical anesthetics for all of our procedures.

Although the procedure is considered permanent, color and shape may be further augmented and changed. Colors will appear darker following a procedure but will soften, lighten, and blend during the healing process. We offer one free touch-up after healing has concluded 4 to 6 weeks from original procedure. Further sessions can augment, or alter previous procedures.

You can return to work the same day in most cases, depending on the type of environment you work in.

An MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a medical imaging technique used to visualize internal structures, and aid in diagnosing illnesses. A magnetic field is used to scan and take very detailed pictures of, one’s internal organs. Many brands of semi-permanent cosmetic pigment contain iron oxide, a metal which can be drawn to a magnet. There are a small number of reported cases of discomfort around the eyes from those wearing permanent cosmetics while undergoing an MRI. However, test studies have confirmed that the iron particles in pigment are too microscopic to react as true metals. Metal teeth fillings are safe. The same is true of our cosmetics.
