The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Process of Permanent Makeup
• Permanent makeup by hanna •
Permanent makeup is considered micro-pigmentation, similar to tattoos. It involves using a needle to place pigmented granules beneath the upper layers of the skin. Although pigment is applied to the top layer of skin only, the procedure may still sting -- just like it does when you get a tattoo. It takes about three weeks for the pigment to fade to the color you selected Permanent makeup is essentially a tattoo that makes you appear as if you're always wearing makeup.
Step 1: Consultation
Lola Beauti the lead Permanent Makeup Artist will go through a thorough consultation before starting the procedure. The Consultation will be set on a different day from the procedure. We believe the consultation is the most important part of the procedure and makes up about 90% of it. During the consultation, we ask clients to show us any photos they like and don’t like to get an idea of the client’s unique style.
Step 2: Shape
Lola will then measure all the points of the client’s face with a ruler to ensure symmetry and precision. Once Lola finds what she needs to make a perfect pair of eyebrows, lips, or eyes she begins designing based on the client’s natural eyebrow hair, lip line, or eyelash line and their desired look. This is all done with a pencil first to ensure that the shape can be adjusted if needed before the procedure starts.
Step 3: Color
Once our client approves the shape drawn, a color is selected between the artist and the client. Lola will swatch colors on the forehead or chin based on their natural eyebrow color or lip color and the client’s unique style.
Step 4: Numbing
We want to ensure your utmost comfort so we apply a topical numbing cream for 20 minutes before your procedure however Lola does not apply numbing when doing the outline for lips, brows, and eyes. She will then place it on top of the outline and cover it with saran wrap to seal in the numbing as much as possible.
Step 5: Process
Only after the client has approved the shape, color, and numbing are completed, then Lola proceeds with the procedure. That's when the magic happens! Lola will open a sterile needle in front of the client and start the procedure. The Pigment is then implanted into the skin in a form of pixels to give it the illusion of naturalness. Proper stretching, wiping. and numbing is applied throughout the procedure to ensure the utmost comfort.
Step 6: Reveal
Once the procedure is complete, the big reveal happens. We show our clients their new beautiful Permanent Makeup and ask the client if they would like to make any adjustments before they leave. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction so we always make sure you walk out the door happy.
Step: Touch up
All permanent makeup is a multisession process, meaning, touch-ups are necessary. Think of this as the second coat of nail polish, the first one is alright, but the second one seals the deal. This session is done 1-3 months after the initial procedure. At this session, our client and lead artist Lola Beauti will go over any concerns they may have had during the healing, and fill in any areas that may have faded. or simply go thicker or darker than the first time! We go conservative on the first session to ensure the client is satisfied so adding on the touch-up is a piece of cake! Again, steps 1-4 are followed on the touch-up and make sure the client leaves satisfied. Free touch-ups for new clients!
