Is Permanent Makeup Right for You?

Women spend an average of 55 minutes every day getting their hair and makeup ready. What if you could cut this time down but still look beautiful and feel confident?

The highly trained team at Breast Body Beauty Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, under the leadership of board-certified plastic surgeon Aisha Baron, MD, offers permanent makeup to give you time back. The natural pigments enhance your features. Best of all, it doesn’t require daily application and removal. 

Here’s what you should know about this minimally invasive, convenient aesthetic treatment. We want to help you decide if it’s the right way for you to achieve your best look.

All about permanent makeup

Permanent makeup is similar to a tattoo. It uses natural pigments to color your lips, fill in your brows, or line your eyes. Your makeup artist applies the makeup pigments to your skin using a sterile needle. 

Naturally-sourced iron oxides make up the pigments in permanent makeup. These ingredients rarely irritate the skin or cause allergic reactions. You can expect your permanent makeup results to last for 1-3 years after your treatment. That means waking up each day and looking beautiful and ready to take on the world. It also means less time at night removing your makeup. 

The permanent makeup offered at Breast Body Beauty Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery includes:

Most patients tolerate the application of permanent makeup quite well. Numbing cream, tiny applicators, and expert application make the process comfortable. Any potential side effects, such as swelling or irritation, tend to be mild and temporary.

The best candidates for permanent makeup

Anyone who loves the look of makeup but doesn’t love the time it takes to apply is a strong candidate for permanent makeup. Permanent makeup may also be an ideal solution if you’d like to work out or play sports without having to worry about runny eyeliner. The same applies if you frequently spend time in the public eye or performing under bright lights.

You may also appreciate permanent makeup if you tend to have sensitivities to the ingredients in daily wear products. Patients with a condition like Parkinson’s disease that make daily application of makeup difficult also benefit from permanent makeup. 

Factors that make you a not-so-good candidate for permanent makeup include being younger than 35 years old. You should avoid permanent makeup if you like to spend time tanning or if you have skin that’s prone to hyperpigmentation. In addition, permanent lip color doesn’t tend to work as well on darker skin tones. 

Patients prone to cold sores may need to take an antiviral prescription medication before to prevent a flare-up. We also recommend anyone going through a major life trauma wait until it’s resolved before scheduling your treatment.
