Curious about permanent makeup and how it can replace the tedious daily cosmetic routine? When most people hear the term “permanent makeup,” they think dramatic eyebrows and fuller lips. In the traditional sense, yes, permanent makeup can help your eyebrows look more arched and your lips appear more defined, but when this treatment is performed by a Pinnacle Dermatology expert, the results help you achieve a refined look that you’ll love waking up to every morning.
How Does Permanent Makeup Work?
The treatment is performed by applying pigment to the top layer of your skin using a needle (somewhat similar to tattooing). At Pinnacle Dermatology, our talented facial architect uses an exclusive formula that allows her to
complement each patient’s individual facial structure, complexion, and skin tone. Using top-rated organic-based pigments, we offer patients a completely customized treatment option that enhances their everyday appearance.
Does Permanent Makeup Hurt?
As this type of treatment may cause some discomfort, we use a topical anesthetic before and during the procedure to prevent pain. This helps you relax your facial muscles during the procedure—which typically takes 2 hours to complete.
How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?
Our micropigmentation procedure can last up to 7 years. After this timeframe, you will need to schedule an appointment for touch ups.
Is Permanent Makeup a Fad or Here to Stay?
Since the 1980s, permanent makeup has been used for cosmetic purposes, however, some scholars claim that this treatment actually dates back to the early Egyptians. Today, new advances in permanent makeup, including microblading techniques, continue to grow in popularity and help women achieve the overall look they crave. Maybe you desire dramatic eyeliner and luscious lips, or maybe you’d like a new look that blends
highlights and shadows to contour your face and create depth. Whatever you’re after, permanent makeup can make it happen. And at Pinnacle Dermatology, you can always trust that our advanced cosmetic treatments are safe, effective, and tailored to your needs.
