Does permanent makeup hurt?
Everybody is different when it comes to sensitivity. Lola does her very best to make sure you are comfortable from start to finish. To reveal the truth, when getting this form of body art Lola will be working on the most delicate part of the body, the face. The face has many layers of skin but it still holds a thin barrier with a greater density of nerves. With that being said, some clients will feel slightly uncomfortable when getting their face tattooed. It is a similar scratching and light sunburn sensation. The process of tattooing and permanent makeup tends to have a weird scratching sound that is uncomfortable to some clients, therefore I highly recommend bringing in a pair of earplugs or a fidget toy to get distracted. Overall, permanent makeup, lip blushing, ombre powder brows, eyelash enhancements. and tattoos can be a very painless procedure when the right numbing cream is used. However, there will be some uncomfortable sounds involved, but you will be pleasantly surprised about how little pain you feel. You will be numbed with our top of the line numbing topical anesthetic cream or gel, SUSTAIN numbing gel, or NUMQUICK PINK Is applied for numbing during every procedure and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. The numbing cream will ease about 20% of the discomfort.
Is permanent makeup safe?
Yes, Aesthetic tattoos or also known as permanent makeup is safe. The process is very similar to the process of tattoos, so is a big commitment. Some of the most essential things you should know before seeking the most popular permanent cosmetics treatments we offer here at G Beauty Palace in Sterling, IL.

Individuals who are allergic to metal and colour

Individuals prone to keloids
Since permanent makeup punctures the skin, there is always a risk for people that are prone to keloids to heal with keloids scaring
Individuals who used Accutane
Accutane alters the skin and makes it thin, dry, and sensitive. It also weakens your immune system. For those reasons you'll need to one year after your Accutane treatment is completed and your skin is back to its normal state.
Individuals with a dark pre-existing eyebrow tattoo or permanent makeup
The tattoo or permanent makeup must be light enough for us to draw pixels
Individuals who are allergic to lidocaine or epinephrine
Our most used anesthetic is lidocaine and epinephrine so if you are allergic to it, we will not be able to use it during the procedure; however, you will still have an option to proceed but without a numbing agent to reduce the pain.
that are prone to cold sores If you are prone to cold sores, lip blushing may result in an outbreak and cause loss of pigment. You must start taking antiviral medication, prescribed by your doctor and NOT over the counter, 48 hours prior to treatment to prevent an outbreak.
Individuals with a dark spots surrounding the lips are prone to hyperpigmentation. Due to the hyperpigmentation, certain lips or prone to hyperpigmentation have to send us an email with a picture of their bare lips and the surrounding area of their lips with no makeup on, so we can evaluate.
Individuals with sun-damaged skin
It can result in poor retention of pigment. G Beauty Palace and Lola Beauti reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
Individuals undergoing chemotherapyAlthough permanent makeup is great for enhancing your look, we require a doctor’s note in order to perform the procedure for anyone undergoing chemotherapy. Once you're cleared from your oncologist we can book your appointment. Permanent makeup is a great solution for cancer survivors.Individuals with DiabetesIt is important that your condition is stable and under control. Please consult with your physician and provide us with a doctor's note.Individuals with Thyroid ConditionThe color of your brows can fade faster when taken with certain thyroid medications.Individuals with GlaucomaThe risk of developing an eye infection is higher.Individuals with High Blood PressureYour blood pressure has to be at a stable condition. You may have slightly greater bleeding than the norm. Excessive bleeding during the procedure can dilute and expel the pigment color and lead to poor results. Individuals that have any uncertainty regarding their pre-existing conditions, or are under the supervision of a physician, please consult with your doctor before booking an appointment and provide us with a doctor's note.
photos are one of the most important parts of the consultation, I may take them for client's records and promotions for my social media such as "before and after photos". If the client is not comfortable with me sharing/ promoting their photo that is completely fine! I will then only have them for keeping the client's record. Photos will record how the client appeared on the first visit. Permission is always asked first to use clients' photos for advertising and social media.
I allow periodic breaks as needed during the tattooing process. It may be difficult to remain lying down for long periods of time and a short restroom or water break is given to the client to renew energy, plus this is a good time to check the work! Please make sure to let me know!
I will then apply after-care products to the fresh tattoo. Then, review aftercare instructions and provide FREE mini after-care goodies. Next, we will schedule the FREE follow-up appointment.
What should I expect prior to my procedure?
What should I do beforehand to prepare?
Before the procedure, we recommend our clients to read the aftercare tab to inform clients what to expect. Some of our recommendations include No facials for two weeks before or after and no blood thinners the night before or the day of. No caffeine, alcohol, or pre-workouts the night before or the day of. face waxing two weeks before. No drinking alcohol or smoking two weeks before
How long is the healing process?
For the first 2 weeks, we ask you to be extremely careful with the area; meaning no makeup, sun exposure, or friction of any kind. You will experience some scabbing a few days after the procedure. NO PULLING OR PICKING. Once the scabbing has finished, you may apply any makeup to the area and wash your face normally. 21 days after the procedure, we require you to come back for a perfecting visit (touch-up) to complete the process. Understand this is a multi-session process so a perfecting visit is crucial.
Can you explain more about the consultation process and what goes into this?
When a client comes in for either a consult or initial appointment, our Lola Beauti the lead permanent makeup artist will discuss the client’s goals including what they want to achieve. We are happy for our clients to bring in photos, social media or any other inspirations to help further guide Lola. Lola lets the client know exactly what to expect and lets them know different possible outcomes depending on their skin types and desired look. Our consultations are listening sessions where Lola listens to each of her client’s wants and needs to administer the best look to enable them to feel completely satisfied and live their most beautiful life.
What should I expect after my procedure? What is my aftercare protocol?
After the procedure, the area of service will appear brighter or darker than what it is intended to look like. Some swelling may occur and some redness may show depending on each client, however, this will reduce in a few hours. The area of service has to be left alone for 48 hours and we require our clients to apply AFTER INKED healing cream, twice a day for two weeks or to be kept moist throughout the day for two weeks as needed. Each area should be kept free of any makeup, direct sun exposure, and friction for two weeks. Color following the initial application will fade and show more of the true color after the healing period.
WHY NO SUN EXPOSURE?
For all tattoo procedures. UVA & UVB rays will wreak havoc on the newly introduced pigment and cause the pigment to fade. The sun is a big no-no for any tattoos, particularly for the first two weeks!
WHY AVOID INTENSIVE SWEATING AND SWIMMING?
For all tattoo procedures. I suggest that you avoid any sort of physical activity that results in heavy sweating due to the change in your body temperature. That applies to a sauna, swimming, intensive workout, bathing, etc. In addition to sweating, chlorine will have a negative effect on new tattoos. At least for the first two weeks!
DO NOT CONSIDER THE RESULT OF THE INITIAL PROCEDURE TO BE FINAL!!
Many of my clients have experienced mild anxiety when they have studied how the color of the pigment fades a little during the first couple of weeks after the procedure. This is completely normal and there is no need to worry because of that! Keep in mind that the actual results can be evaluated correctly only after the free touchup procedure has been performed and taken care of.
WHEN SHOULD I COME IN FOR MY FREE TOUCHUP APPOINTMENT?
The second session is scheduled 4-6 weeks after the initial appointment. This gives your brows time to heal. it takes a few weeks for brows to heal and approximately one month for the color to fully settle into the skin. The color appears quite dark initially, but fades with the healing process, resulting in a softer, more desirable shade. One free touch-up includes refilling- if certain areas did not properly retain the pigment; color re-shaping- as individual skin types absorb pigmentations differently and may require deeper shading.
HOW LONG CAN MY PMU LAST?
You can expect your tattoo to last anywhere up to 1-3 years. However, many factors will have a direct bearing on durabilities like skin type, lifestyle, and maintenance all taking in part of the duration. Some clients will lose the pigment entirely over the course of 18 months and some will retain the pigment for longer. For others, it will never fade completely.
(This is why we as PMU artists must represent it as "permanent makeup"!)
Clients should take care of and maintain the integrity of their new PMU treatment. You invested the time and money! for your service and you must do your part at home to maintain your beautiful tattoo.
