*If you need premedication to see a dentist, you must premedicate to get PMU
Permanent makeup (PMU), also known as cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation, is the process of implanting colored pigment beneath the surface of the skin by means of a tiny, sterile needle to produce the appearance of cosmetic makeup or to enhance the natural features of the face.
PMU is meant to be a natural-looking beauty enhancement. Body tattoos use ink, while PMU uses pigments. These pigments are designed to stay in place, and to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the technician to make changes to color and shape over time as the client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.
Highly-effective, topical anesthetic creams and gels are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Receiving the procedure during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity.
Treatments are considered permanent and will not wash off, however, they will fade over time and may require a touch-up every 1-3 years. Fading depends on a number of factors including the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), how much oil your skin produces, and your skin care regimens.
Typically, two initial treatments are needed, at least 6 weeks apart. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your PMU does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go darker or add more density or shape at your next appointment.
Absolutely! Corrections are often made to improve the shape, color, and symmetry of previous PMU. In some cases, removal might be recommended before proceeding.
Please note- If I did not do the original work, your session is considered a correction and is not a touch-up.
Please make sure to read over the FAQ page before booking.
* If you have previous PMU, an in-person or virtual consultation is required. *
