This specialized procedure requires training and certification by an aesthetician. Our permanent makeup expert, April Tourdot, is a licensed cosmetic aesthetician with additional certification in Advanced Permanent Cosmetics.
What to Expect
During an initial consultation, April will determine if you are a good candidate for permanent makeup. She will help you choose pigment colors and explain the procedure. Permanent Makeup takes about 1.5 hours to perform. Typically, 1 or 2 follow-up visits are needed to ensure correct color, shape, and pigment density.
Some discomfort may be associated with the procedure, which is minimized by applying a topical anesthetic. During the procedure, minor bleeding or bruising may occur; swelling may last 2-72 hours; the area may be tender for a few days. During the first 7-10 days, the color will appear darker than the final result.
Permanent Makeup cannot be washed off. The treated area should retain its color for a long time. If the color does fade, it can be refreshed with an additional treatment. Please note, a consultation is required prior to having any treatment done.
