What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is a professional cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of facial features. It involves implanting pigment within the dermal layer of your skin in a process similar to tattooing, using a precise injection process.

What are the benefits of permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup offers subtle, natural-looking improvements to facial features, such as:

  • Fuller lips
  • Enhanced lip color
  • Cheek color
  • Eyelid color
  • Darker eyebrows
  • Reshaped eyebrows
  • Permanent eyeliner

Permanent makeup can also be used to address concerns on the body, such as surgical scars or stretch marks. It doesn’t need to be reapplied, it won’t smudge or flake, and it’s a good alternative for people who are allergic to standard makeup.

What should I expect during my permanent makeup procedure?

Your specialist at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic numbs your skin with a topical anesthetic before beginning your permanent makeup treatment. They use a sterile, electric device equipped with a fine needle to insert pigment into the upper layers of your skin. You may feel a mild pricking sensation during the procedure, but it isn’t painful.

You should expect some swelling and redness in the treated area for up to 24 hours. As your skin heals, it may flake and peel. Your specialist may recommend that you avoid applying makeup for up to a week after your treatment.

How long will my results last?

How long your results last depends on the pigments you choose, your lifestyle, and other individual factors. Permanent makeup typically lasts three to five years, but it can remain even longer. Occasional touch-up treatments can extend your results.

Is permanent makeup safe?

The expert team at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic performs your permanent makeup procedure in a safe, sterile environment. Each provider has extensive training and experience so that they can perform the procedure safely and effectively.

While there is a slight risk of injury or infection with any procedure that uses a needle, when performed by a licensed and experienced technician, these risks are extremely rare.
