Permanent makeup demystified

visage maquillageIt is wrong to believe that permanent makeup is another name for the tattoo

Several points differentiate these two techniques: permanent makeup pigments are implanted in the superficial layers of the skin; the duration of my makeup varies between 5 to 15 years; the pigment being natural is quietly absorbed by the body and needs to be revived; the needles that I use for permanent makeup are finer and allow me to make lines of extreme precision. On the other hand, for both techniques, the laser treatments are to be proscribed on the treated area.

No sting of anesthetic is needed to freeze the area to be treated

A topical anesthetic is applied on the area to make up and already after a few minutes, I can proceed to your permanent makeup. The majority of my clients tell me that they have had almost no pain, you will only feel the vibration of my tool. Return to work or routine may be scheduled the day after treatment. However, it should be 2 to 8 weeks for complete healing of the treated area.

Permanent makeup is often confused with microblading

Microblading is a semi-permanent make-up using microblades. This treatment must be restored every 12 to 15 months. Permanent makeup is done by means of a dermograph and lasts between 5 to 15 years. Microblading is used on the eyes, lips and eyebrows, while I use permanent makeup also for camouflage scars or vitiligo and as a baldness care technique. For both techniques, the choice of colors is unlimited since I create it for you. I consider the hue of your skin and your needs, but I can also take inspiration from your favorite lipstick or eyeshadow.
