Permanent makeup is the art and science of implanting organic and inorganic ink into the dermal and epidermal layer of skin – more commonly known as tattooing.
Immediately after the procedure is completed the overall color will appear darker than the final result approximately one week later when the skin begins to heal and the colors change to natural and soft shades as the outer epidermal layer of skin renews itself.
Permanent makeup procedures at Kirkland Skin Care can take 1 hour to 1 hour & 30 minutes per procedure type. Please be on time for your permanent cosmetic appointment as a specific amount of time is necessary.
Permanent makeup is long lasting. After your initial touch-up, you may need a maintenance touch-up in one to three years. Exposure to sun, water, and cleansers will cause your makeup to fade over time. Just be sure to maintain your beautiful makeup with refresher touch-ups.
New topical anesthetics have been developed especially for these procedures. Everyone has different tolerance to pain, but pain is kept to a minimum. Because permanent makeup procedures require the use of topical anesthetics, avoiding caffeine before your appointment can help with your comfort level.
