From the beginning of time, women have used their eyes and lips to communicate. Eyebrows, eyes are lips are the focal points of facial expression. Sparse eyebrows, either as a result of nature or over tweezing, non-existent brows caused, for example, by alopecia can be corrected. Eyes can be given definition and structure by creating a fine line close to the upper and lower lashes. In the case of people without real lashes, it can create the illusion of lashes. The shape of the lip can be improved, and imperfections such as arched, flat or asymmetric lips can be corrected giving you the confidence of long lasting beauty that goes on....and on.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Permanent Make-up?
Permanent Make-up is a form of cosmetic tattoo. Tiny amounts of natural pigments are inserted into dermal layer of the skin. The result is “ Permanent Makeup”----a desired cosmetic effect that last for years.
How long will my permanent make-up last?
Permanent make-up will fade over time as the pigment is inserted only into the upper layer of the dermis - as the skin gets replaced, over a period of two or three years, the color fades.
How long do I need to be absent from my job?
Normally, you could have your treatment in the morning, and be back to work the same afternoon. But you may have some swelling on the lip and eyeliner. The color may appear 20-30% darker than the finial result. It takes about 4 to 6 days for the skin to completely heal.
What color and shape is best for me?
First of all, nothing is done without your approval. I work with you to design the most attractive style and shape based on your facial features and personal preference. Then, individualized color is mixed according to your skin tone.
Is it painful?
There is only a small amount of discomfort, with a plucking like sensation. Most people can manage our process very easily and a topical numbing agent is applied to desensitize the area.

All needles are disposable new and sterile for each client.
