What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup, or micropigmentation, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tattooing to enhance your features. At The Spa at South Bay Plastic Surgeons, micropigmentation is most often used for 2 purposes:
Permanent makeup can fill in your brows, define your eyes or emphasize your lips. This technique can eliminate the need for certain cosmetic products and streamline your beauty routine. With Valerie’s skillful application, you’ll look effortlessly polished night and day.
Reconstructive Surgery & Scarring
Patients who are faced with reconstructive breast surgery as a result of breast cancer can use permanent makeup to create natural-looking areolas or to reduce visible scarring. This procedure, called nipple-areola tattooing, is often covered by insurance and can be very rewarding. Valerie’s focus on precision and color-matching ensures that your results will appear authentic.
The design is sketched on and approved by you prior to the start of the procedure. You will see exactly what is going to be done before anything permanent is applied. A topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area, and then a single-use sterilized needle is used to tattoo the skin. This process is easily tolerated by most people, many of whom describe the feeling as a “scratching” sensation.
The length of the procedure will vary depending on the amount of work being done, but it usually takes approximately 2 hours. You will need to come back in 6 to 8 weeks for a follow-up treatment to refresh the color. After that, your results can last for 1 to 3 years or longer.
