When deciding on permanent makeup, price shouldn't be the only factor you use when deciding who does your procedure(s). With price comes experience, skill, training, and the demand of the technician, and I can tell you that I have those.  Yes, my prices may be a little more than some others, however, feel secure in knowing that you're in good hands.  I have all the confidence in the world that when you walk into my studio, you will leave extremely happy and completely satisfied.

While shopping around, I noticed that your prices are higher than some? Why is that?

I try to accommodate everyone's busy schedule when booking their appointment, so when someone cancels on me at the last minute, most often, I am not able to fill that time slot, and therefore, I lose business. The deposit is simply your promise to me that you are going to come in and have the procedure done, otherwise, I will book someone else into that time slot.  If you cannot make it and need to cancel or reschedule, you must give me 48 hours or more notice so I can have an opportunity with enough time to fill that time slot.

Why is a $100 deposit required to hold my appointment?

YES. I work with you to to determine what type of Permanent Cosmetic look you wish to have.  Natural or Hollywood (also known as the Glamour look).  If you choose to have your Permanent Cosmetics done with a natural look, I can use your pre-existing natural facial features to enhance them to their fullest. This natural look allows you to apply traditional cosmetics over your "Permanent Makeup". Therefore, without any applied makeup, you are always enhanced with your permanent makeup!  If you choose to have a more "Hollywood" look,  which is Permanent Makeup that looks as though you are always wearing traditional cosmetics, I can do that too and you can apply cosmetics over that as well.   Some traditional makeups cover better than other, so keep this in mind.  The Hollywood look is a great option for those that want a reliable and consistent makeup look that holds up 24/7 no matter what they do.

Can makeup be applied over permanent makeup?

A benefit to doing them at the same time is that you will save $ right off the top because I offer discounts for multiple procedures, so that's a nice advantage. The second benefit is, if you do both procedures at the same time, which I highly recommend, you will heal at the same time, and you'll come in for any potential touch-ups at the same time, so it's much easier to manage.  Clients always seem to prefer and be happier that they had both procedures done at once due to these reasons, but you can do which you prefer.

Can I have more than one procedure done at the same time or should they be done at different times?

Permanent Cosmetics & Dermagraphics / Paramedical Tattoo are relatively safe procedures.  They are often even recommended by doctors to compliment their own post-operative work.  There are some conditions, however, such as heart problems and a few others that might require you to get your doctor's approval (that they have assessed that you are healthy enough to receive this type of service) first.  All Permanent Cosmetic technicians must follow strict hygiene and sterilization procedures that conform to OSHA and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidelines. Having said that, some may not, but I can assure you that I do.

Is It Safe?

Tolerance to discomfort and pain vary from one individual to another, however, most people say they experience no to only mild discomfort when receiving Permanent Cosmetics & Dermagraphic procedures.  For many, we hear that they experience no discomfort at all.  Every effort if made to ensure the comfort of our clients with the use of specially made topical anesthetics made specifically with the procedures we do in mind.

Does it hurt?

Are Permanent Cosmetics & Dermagraphics "Permanent"?

The outcome is dependent on a number of factors (pigments used, pigment placement depth in the skin, technician's technique, the body's absorbancy, and after care followed), but one should treat it as permanent.  Over time, usually over the course of a couple of years, it may fade some and require a color boost to maintain the freshness of the desired look.

Anyone, man or woman, that wants to experience an enhanced look 24/7.  Look like you, only better!  This is an ideal solution for those with active and busy lifestyles, athletes, professionals, for those that have makeup allergies, poor vision, limited ability to apply makeup, hair loss, that lack confidence due to their current look (re makeup, skin pigmentation, scars, birthmarks), and more.  It is also a great option for those that want to wake up looking their best, not wanting to be dependent on products, to have to pay for them regularly, or to have retouch their look throughout the day.  Think about it.  What freedom!  You wouldn't have to ever worry about your makeup melting, running, smearing, coming off, or looking caked-on again!

Who Benefits?

Microneedling, also called Dry Needling, is Skin Rejuvenation Through Collagen Induction Therapy. It is a worldwide centuries old skin treatment. Over the last few decades the demand for this service has taken off, and for good reason.  Tiny needles are used and penetrate into the skin's dermis which stimulates the body to produce collagen and new skin cells, thus naturally restoring the skin.  This is a great option for those that want a more youthful look or a clearer even skin tone without subjecting themselves to the use of often expensive and harsh and/or potentially damaging chemical or acid peels, lasers, dermabrasion, or facelift procedures.  Recovery time is quick and results are usually noticeable soon after treatment.  Microneedling can be used for:  Wrinkles (Face, Neck, Lips, Body), Acne or Trauma Scarring, Stretch Marks, Sun Damage (Face & Chest), Improving skin texture, & Cellulite.

What is Microneedling?

Dermagraphics, Micropigmentation, and Medical Tattoo can be interchangeably used to describe Paramedical Tattoo.  This might include, but is not limited to, procedures that are more restorative and/or corrective in nature, such as: scar or (hypo or hyper) pigment camouflaging, camouflage of lost or thinning hair, simulated Areola reconstruction, tattoo removal or concealment/camouflage, microneedling/collagen induction therapy, cleft palate scar camouflage and restorative enhancement of the mouth area and facial features, and tattooing of simulated eyelashes.

What is Dermagraphics?

Permanent Cosmetics, Permanent Makeup, and Micropigmentation can be used interchangeably as terms to describe tattooing a permanent cosmetic makeup look onto a person.   This is often Eyebrows, Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Eyelash Enhancement, Lipliner, Lip Blush/Lip Tint, Lips (Full Color), Cheek Blush, Cheek Contouring, and Beauty Marks.
