Permanent makeup is a convenient alternative to traditional makeup. This cosmetic procedure is ideal if you have hair loss, scars or burns, or poor vision that makes it difficult to apply your own makeup. Permanent makeup is also convenient, if you have an active lifestyle or are allergic to ingredients in makeup.
This makeup technique applies pigment at a very shallow level in your skin, compared with the depth used for a tattoo. That’s why the color fades over the course of a few years. The advantage to applying the pigment to a layer just beneath your epidermis is the shading looks natural.
If you use facial products, know that active ingredients such as retinol or vitamin C can fade the permanent makeup on your brows and lips faster than normal. Sun exposure can also shorten the life of your new makeup.
Dr. Ahdoot has an expert in permanent makeup on his team. Her name is Mojee, and she’s certified in using permanent makeup to enhance your appearance and your self-esteem. A trusted professional in her field, she’s a member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, the industry’s leading professional organization.
Permanent makeup can be applied to your eyes, brows, and lips. Your eyes’ appearance is enhanced with “eyeliner.” Thin brows are permanently “penciled” in. Lips, which tend to thin and fade as you age, are repigmented, making them look a little plumper and fuller.
You receive a numbing cream to reduce any discomfort during this process. The needles used to apply the pigment are small but held close to your eyes and face, which can make you feel uncomfortable. Mojee is likely to ask you to close your eyes during the procedure, to increase your emotional comfort.
You don’t need much follow-up care after a permanent makeup application. You may have slight redness around your eyes or a little swelling in your lips, depending on your treatment.
The initial application color should mellow within five to seven days — the effect softens by about half.
Permanent makeup ensures you always look your best: morning, afternoon, and night. Call Cosmetic Laser Center of Irvine or book an appointment online to find out how this procedure can change your look and daily routine for the better.
