Hey friends, let's talk about Permanent Makeup and how to care for it.

"What is PMU?"

-It is a cosmetic technique that involves depositing pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. Also known as "micropigmentation" or "cosmetic tattooing", PMU aims to enhance and define various features of the face, including eyebrows, eyeliner, lip color, faux freckles, etc. Unlike traditional makeup, which requires daily application and touch-ups, PMU offers a long-lasting solution to achieve a flawless and natural-looking appearance.

“Does it hurt?”

-No, we use a special numbing cream that helps significantly.

"How often do i need to have it redone?"

-A touch up is recommended 4-6 weeks after your procedure, and ythen once every 1-3 years.

"Can i still wear makeup?"

-Of course. We ask that you wait 72 hours before applying makeup around the area, and one week until you can wear it directly on the area.

"Will they fade?"

-PMU will fade 30-40%, which is why we recommend a touch up.

"How long is the healing time"

About 1.5 weeks.

"How long does it take?"

-for eyeliner, about 2.5 hours.

-for brows, about 3 hours.

-for lips, about 4 hours.

-for freckles, about 30 minutes.

"Can i drive after my procedure"


"How long will the swelling last?"

-Swelling typically goes down within 4-6 hours, but you can use ice/icepack as needed for your comfort.

"Do you accept payment plans?"

-Yes! I offer financing through a company called Klarna. You can apply for that here-


Proper care following your procedure is necessary to achieve the best results.

Keep in mind that in many cases some unevenness of color is to be expected. This is the purpose of the touch-up visit.

Please review the following directions and refer to them as necessary.

If during your healing process you have any questions or concerns, please contact your technician. If necessary, an appointment for a touch-up procedure may be made between 4 and 6 weeks following the initial procedure.

* Day of the Procedure: You will go home with aftercare cream on the procedure area. Leave this on as long as possible. Overnight if possible.

Day After the Procedure: Soak cotton balls in a mixture of antibacterial soap and warm water. Use these cotton balls to cleanse the procedure area in patting motion once daily. You can do this either first thing in the morning or right before bed. After you cleanse the area apply a thin layer of aftercare cream.

Healing Process Instructions: During the rest of your healing process you will cleanse once daily and apply aftercare cream. You should apply your aftercare up to 7 times a day and continue to do this for 7 days after the procedure. On the 8th day after your procedure, you can stop cleansing the area and applying aftercare cream throughout the day.

The following information are tips for your healing process:

1. Ice packs protected with a cloth may be applied as necessary to reduce swelling. Sleeping slightly elevated helps alleviate swelling sometimes seen the morning after facial procedures.

2. Wash your hands before touching any treated area. Cotton-tipped applicators may be used to gently cleanse the eye area and if needed apply Vaseline to the treatment area a few times a day. Less is better. Do not expose the area to dirty or unsanitary conditions. Wearing glasses outdoors is a good way to protect new eyeliner from dust, etc. that can stick to healing agents. Apply recommended healing agents sparingly.

3. Some itching is normal. DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR SCRATCH the treated area or your color may heal unevenly, and you risk scarring and infection.

4. No makeup is to be applied for 72 hours after the procedure. After any eyeliner procedure, use new mascara. Do not use an eyelash curler for two weeks.

5. Do not expose your healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, hot tubs, (tub baths if a body area is treated), saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water, skin creams, ointments or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for 2 weeks following your procedure.

6. After a lip procedure, always keep your lips moist. Avoid spicy foods or heat. If using herpes medication, continue as prescribed.

Long Term Care Use sunscreen daily to keep the color from fading. If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI, or other medical procedure, inform your physician of your permanent cosmetics. If you donate blood, it is Red Cross policy that you must wait one year after any tattooing procedure
