What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup, otherwise known as, Intradermal Pigmentation is a revolutionary method of applying micro insertions of natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. Intradermal Pigmentation combined with cosmetic artistry is used for a variety of permanent cosmetic enhancements such as permanent eyebrows, eye liner, lip liner and full lip color. It is also a valuable procedure for camouflaging scars, burns, and skin pigmentation variances caused by Vitiligo, correcting some facial irregularities or to further enhance facial rejuvenation and post-operative treatments.

Who benefits from permanent makeup?

Everyone, from the young to the elderly, who desires a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance. It is especially beneficial to people who can’t wear other cosmetics due to allergies or skin sensitivities; Active people who want to look their best during activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, tennis, aerobics, and those who don't want to worry about "sweating off" or reapplying cosmetics. It is also helpful to people with visual impairment, watery eyes, and those with unsteady or arthritic hands that have difficulty applying makeup.
