Whether you are looking to replenish thinning brows, accentuate your eyes, or brighten your lips, permanent makeup can be a highly satisfying procedure. Permanent makeup application is the tattooing of iron oxide pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This procedures saves women time and the additional expense of makeup application. While those with permanent makeup may require a ‘touch-up’ every two years or so, the procedure is long-lasting, with long-term satisfaction.

Candidates for Permanent Makeup
Many people from different walks of life choose to have a permanent cosmetics procedure done in order to streamline their lifestyle. Permanent makeup allows those who otherwise would spend time and money on makeup to simplify their routine. While most candidates for permanent cosmetics are simply people who would like to minimize their time in front of the mirror in the morning, some who choose to have this treatment done are affected by:
- sparse brows / lashes
- hair loss for any reason
What to Expect At Your Initial Consultation
Anastasia Wooten, Beleza’s permanent makeup artist, is a Certified Permanent Cosmetics Professional, and a member of the SPCP.
Anastasia will first consult with you regarding the procedure you want to have done. You will need to know which procedure(s) you are interested in when you come to meet with her.
- permanent makeup on the eyebrow(s)
- permanent eyeliner
- lash liner (to subtly augment the appearance of lashes)
- permanent lip liner
- full lip color
- areola tattooing (which can be for breast cancer reconstruction patients, or for those who wish to emphasize pale nipples)
Together, you and Anastasia will select pigments that best suit your skin color as well as your aesthetic goals.
The Permanent Makeup Procedure
Prior to treatment, you will be numbed with a topical gel solution. This will not take long to absorb into the skin and become effective – about an hour at the most.
The treatment itself will also not take long – likely a half an hour, depending on your circumstances. Your procedure will be done here in our office, in clean and sanitary conditions.
Following treatment, the site treatment will be cleaned, and you will be ready to go. You may be unnerved by the initial result. The pigment will look much darker immediately following treatment than what your result will actually look like. In the coming weeks, your pigment will fade up to 40%!
Follow-up Care after Permanent Makeup
Touch-ups are required in order for you to achieve your optimal result. We will schedule a six week follow-up for you to return after your procedure and have Anastasia take a look at you.
