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

The Center For Permanent Makeup tries to accommodate everyone's busy schedule when booking their appointment, so when someone cancels at the last minute, most often, that spot is not able to filled, and therefore business and income is lost. The deposit is simply your promise that you are going to come in and have the procedure done, otherwise, someone else will booked into that time slot.  If you cannot make it and need to cancel or reschedule, you must give 48 hours or more notice so there is an opportunity of enough time to fill that time slot.  If you do not do this, then you lose your deposit and another one must be provided to reschedule your next appointment.  If a deposit is taken, and you show up for your appointment, then that deposit amount is applied to the balance which is then paid at the time of the appointment.

Why is a 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 or Makeup 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 makeup/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?

Yes.  We can arrange a time slot to reserve that will allow for more than one procedure to be done on the same day.  A benefit to doing them at the same time is that you will save $ right off the top because a discount is given for multiple procedures, so that's a nice advantage. The second benefit is, if you do both procedures at the same time, which is highly recommended, both areas will heal around at the same time, and you'll come in for a single follow-up instead of two , so it's much easier to do.  When maintenance appointments are necessary, again these may be done together at one convenient appointment.  Clients always seem to prefer and be happier that they had both procedures done at once due to these reasons, but you can do whichever option works best for you.

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

Permanent Cosmetics, Microblading, Medical Tattoo, & Dermagraphics 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 first (saying that they have assessed that you are healthy enough to receive this type of service).  All Permanent Cosmetic Providers 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 the Center For Permanent Makeup does.  In fact, our head Specialist, Desiree Lauterbach is a Certified Instructor in Blood Borne Pathogens, which identifies risk and prevention of infection protocols to ensure protection from workplace exposure to BBP.  In addition to this, only one-time use sterilized items are used on our clients.  This helps to ensure the best possible health and safety exposure.  Both of which can affect results.

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, Microblading, Medical Tattoo, & 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, Microblading, Medical Tattoo, & Dermagraphics really "Permanent"?

The final healed 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 consider them as permanent. There is not such thing as a Semi-Permanent tattoo.  Over time it will fade due to normal exposure and maturity, and require a color maintenance application appointment to refresh the color and keep the desired look.  This is usually annually for Permanent Makeup (Eyebrows, Eyeliner, Lips) and every 6 months for Microblading.  If you keep up the recommended maintenance appointments, you can extend the fresh look of your procedure area for years to come! 

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, looking caked-on, or having to keep checking every few hours  or when you eat or drink so see how your look is holding up again!

Who Benefits?

Microneedling, also called Dry Needling, Skin Needling, or Mesotherapy, 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 and appearance 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 Scarring, Injury or Surgical Scarring, Sun Damage (Face & Chest), Improving skin texture, Cellulite, and More!
