BEFORE & AFTER
How Is Permanent Makeup Done?
In permanent makeup, a tattoo pen is used to inject permanent ink into the skin. The area is numbed with local anesthetic before the procedure. Depending on the areas treated, a session may take approximately thirty minutes to two hours.
Permanent Makeup For Eyes
Permanent makeup for the eyes is extremely popular and the results are stunning. We can use a variety of eyeliner colors for the upper or lower lids. The color can be applied as subtle or as dramatic as you would like. Our patients love their results, and they really love waking up without having to worry about applying eyeliner.
Does Getting Permanent Eyeliner Hurt?
Permanent eyeliner is not a painful procedure. You may experience some redness or swelling for a few hours, just as you would when receiving a tattoo. Cosmetic tattoos are performed in the same way using more natural chemicals that do not cause irritations or skin problems.
Permanent Makeup For Lips
At Avalon Laser, we offer permanent makeup for the lips. You can choose from a range of colors and shades. We can also apply lipliner to make the lips stand out. The beauty of permanent makeup on the lips is that you are always ready to go, yet if you want to switch it up, you can always do so by applying lipstick over your cosmetic lip tattoo.
Permanent Makeup For The Eyebrows
Many patients pursue permanent makeup for the eyebrows because they have thin eyebrows or simply want to achieve a more appealing and dramatic look. Often, we perform eyebrow makeup on patients who have lost brow hair or have scars that need to be covered.
Permanent eyebrow makeup can truly offer excellent and beautiful results regardless of the reason it is being done. Permanent makeup eyebrows can be applied to match your skin tone or hair colors, and we can also use a shade lighter or darker to enhance your facial features.
What Is Recovery Like After Permanent Makeup?
After a permanent makeup procedure, it takes a few weeks for the color to fade to its permanent shade. You may experience swelling and redness at first. Use cold compresses to reduce swelling, avoid the sun, and use sunblock for several weeks after treatment to help prevent color changes.
What are the benefits of permanent makeup?
The most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is waking up in the morning with your face already done. No matter whether you exercise, swim, or shower, you always look well put together and ready to go. This may be an ideal for women with a busy lifestyle, and a great option for someone who has faint or partial eyebrows, lip scars, or lipstick bleed.
