Permanent Makeup – A Budget Conscious Enhancement

During the current economic slump, permanent makeup has emerged as an excellent alternative for people to enhance their looks on a budget.  

Permanent makeup artists create the illusion of bold features. They embed  colored pigment into the skin to create perfectly shaped eyebrows, enhance the eyelids with permanent eyeliner, or create the illusion of fuller, younger-looking lips by ‘filling them in’ with a shade of pink or red. 

The procedure creates a subtler look than a traditional tattoo and allows many people to enhance the vibrancy of facial features that have diminished over time.

For pure convenience, permanent makeup shortens the daily ritual of applying makeup before work or other social functions.  Patients say they especially love it in the summer months because it’s waterproof, so their eyes still look attractive and vibrant after activities like swimming or exercising.

To minimize risks, you should always choose a physician with several years of experience in permanent makeup application. Ask to see photos of other patients who received the same treatment, or talk to former patients if possible.

Permanent makeup only requires a topical anesthetic. Healing can take up to two weeks depending on the type of tattoo. For more information, see our permanent makeup web page, or call our skin care counselor Marlene at 909-987-0899.
