Question:  How long does permanent makeup last?
Answer:
It can last from 3 to 10 years with an average of 7 years. The longevity of your procedure will depend on the oiliness of the skin, environmental exposure, such as tanning beds, facial peels etc and the quality of the inks. Women who use face creams with an exfoliator in them will lighten their procedure much faster.

Question:
Is there Pain with the procedures?
Answer:
A good PM artist will be certified under a doctor and use topical anesthetics to insure their clients comfort. However, there are always people who respond better than others to pain medicines. I use two different anesthetics and 90% of my clients have no pain at all.

Question:
How long does the procedure normally take?
Answer:
Most procedures take between 2 and 3 hours. Lips take the longest. Eyebrow and Lip procedures require more time because they are the larger areas, and also because it is important to select the right color. Eyebrows take additional time to design. It is important that you arrive for your appointment with plenty of time to devote to your procedure.

Question:
How long does it take to heal from a procedure?
Answer:
Almost all procedures are surface healed within 3 to 5 days, however you will continue to heal internally for 5 to 6 weeks. Lip colors will fade in and out and change colors for the first three weeks.

Question:
Will I have to miss work?
Answer:
There is no need to take off work. You will experience some redness and may have slight swelling in the area treated. This will go away within a day or two and should not interfere with your work or daily activities.

Question:
What is included in my Permanent Makeup procedure?
Answer:
The initial consultation
A patch test for allergies
The procedure
A home care kit with instructions
24/7 hot line for question
2 or 3 week follow-up consultation
Six week follow-up treatment, if necessary

Question:
Is this a safe process?
Answer:
This is a skin invasive procedure, with minimal risk. A patch test should be taken before any procedure is done. You should discuss any health concerns you have with your PM technician, during your consultation. In some cases, permission from your doctor might need to be obtained, but this would be very rare. Lip procedures can cause a cold sore breakout in people with a history of cold sores. It is recommended that you use Abreva or Valtrex before and after the procedure to avoid a breakout. It is also important to note that this virus can lay dormant in your body and come to the surface after a lip procedure. So it is possible to have a breakout even though you have never experienced one in the past. The incidence of infection and other complications after a permanent makeup procedure is very low. An experienced Permanet Makeup Artist will make sure her clients have a safe, comfortable procedure.
