We encourage you to explore our full offering of semi-permanent makeup. Among these options you are likely to find a technique that can perfectly suit your needs and personal aesthetic goals.

What Are the Benefits of Semi-Permanent Makeup?

There are many advantages that make semi-permanent makeup an attractive option for both women and men:

  • Save time getting ready and save money on cosmetics. Time and money spent on the daily application of cosmetics and perfecting your look can be reduced tremendously, if not completely, with semi-permanent makeup. You can potentially look forward to years of simplified maintenance ahead.
  • Results are completely customizable to suit your personal style.
  • Enhance your natural features with subtle results.
  • Wake up every morning looking your best and no longer worry about cosmetic products that smudge, run, or wash off.
  • Restore the appearance of hair from the eyebrows to the scalp.
  • Achieve a look that you’ve been unable to create with traditional cosmetics.
  • Semi-permanent pigments and techniques mean your results won’t last forever, so your look can evolve to suit new preferences and changes in your appearance.

Which Semi-Permanent Makeup Options Are Available?

A wide variety of semi-permanent techniques are available at our practice. These techniques are incredibly versatile and customizable to accommodate individuals of all ages who desire any kind of look. For example, semi-permanent makeup can:

  • Reinvent your brows to create symmetry, shape, and fullness. This treatment can be performed to accentuate what you already have or to restore what was once there with a beautiful outcome.
  • Enhance the eyes with classic eyeliner or go for a bolder look with options in color, liner size, and artistic style. You can finally have the perfect winged liner.
  • Revitalize and accentuate the lips with options from a “lip blush” to a “lip tint,” or choose a bold solid lip color for a full-time lipstick look.
  • Rejuvenate or recreate the natural appearance of the nipples and areola. These aspects of the breasts can be perfected and even brought back to life for those who’ve experienced traumatic injury or removal.
  • Add character with natural-looking freckles or beauty marks.
  • Camouflage the appearance of scars on the face and body.
  • Give thinning areas of hair a thicker, darker look with scalp pigmentation.

Our experienced semi-permanent makeup artist will collaborate with you to develop a customized approach that can deliver optimal results based on your natural features and the look you desire.

How is Semi-Permanent Makeup Applied?

During a comprehensive consultation with your artist, you will discuss your personal style and try different looks to solidify your semi-permanent makeup plan. Once ready to start the application process, an effective topical anesthetic is first spread on the treatment area to numb the skin and minimize any discomfort. The plan for your makeup is then drawn onto the skin in fine detail and serves as a guide for the semi-permanent makeup application. You will have a chance to examine and approve the makeup plan before your artist begins with the semi-permanent pigment. Using a digital, hand-held electric device with a fine needle at the end, your artist will then trace lightly over the guide-marks, quickly depositing pigment into the skin. The process typically takes between one to two hours, depending on the area(s) where the semi-permanent makeup is being applied. For larger treatment plans, multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.

Is There Any Healing or Recovery Time After Semi-Permanent Makeup?

While no downtime is required after semi-permanent makeup application, there is a healing process that takes place. Some mild swelling and redness is common in the first 24 hours, which can be relieved with a cold compress. Keeping the treated area clean is important for preventing irritation and infection—this means no makeup for four to five days. It is also imperative that you avoid vigorous exercise and keep out of the sun or tanning beds for the first few days. As healing progresses, you may notice the pigment color lightening and experience some gentle peeling. A follow-up appointment scheduled with your artist provides the opportunity to evaluate your healing, examine your results, and make any minor touch-ups.

How Long Does Semi-Permanent Makeup Last?

While many semi-permanent pigments can last three to five years, some can remain visible for as long as ten years. Gradual fading is to be expected, and our artist will discuss these qualities during your consultation. The length of time your semi-permanent makeup lasts depends on a variety of factors:

  • Color and type of pigment used
  • Density of pigment placement
  • Depth of the pigment placement
  • Application technique
  • Amount of sun exposure
  • Skin type

Touch-ups can be completed on an as-needed basis to maintain your preferred look. As pigments fade, you may also choose to apply a new shade for a subtle or dramatic change.

How Much Does Semi-Permanent Makeup Cost?

The cost for your semi-permanent makeup is as unique as your treatment plan. There are many variables to consider before an overall estimate can be reached:

  • Number of areas treated
  • Specific areas treated
  • Number of sessions required
  • Complexity of the treatment plan
