WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?

What is permanent makeup? 
Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” or “dermagraphics”. The cosmetic implantation technique deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. Permanent makeup cosmetics is a safe and natural-looking alternative to the expense and daily routine of applying makeup upon waking in the morning and often times throughout the day. It is a state-of-the-art technique of permanently applying makeup via intradermal micropigmentation. Properly applied by an experienced technician, permanent makeup will be more natural and realistic in appearance as compared to conventional cosmetics.

BROWS

image24

Do you do hair strokes, powdering or microblading?

Michelle is a promoter of very realistic and natural looking Permanent Cosmetics. For brows Michelle can imitate natural brow hairs, whether you have any or not. Alternatively, if you desire hair strokes, powdering or microblading, that can also be achieved. Michelle will work with you to achieve the perfect brow style for you.

Do I have to have all my eyebrows shaved off?

No. It’s better to keep your own brows, Michelle advise not to even tweeze them before you come in so we can review your natural shape. Michelle always try and work with what you have there already and subtly integrate the design to suit your natural brow shape to match your face shape.

Can I have my brows waxed before having a brow treatment?

Yes, but any waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the treatment.

Can I have electrolysis on my brows before having a brow treatment? 

Yes, but you should wait a minimum of five days after having electrolysis before your procedure day.

Should I bring my brow pencil or wear my usual make up?

Yes, it can be useful to see what colour tones and shape you usually choose for your brows, but you don’t have to. Michelle is a professional so she will help you choose the right color to compliment your skin tone.

Will you need to remove any of my natural brow hairs?

The idea is to work with whatever brow hairs you have. It’s often incorrectly assumed that brow hairs need to be shaved off for Permanent Cosmetics treatments. This is not the case! The only time brow hairs may need to be removed (twizzled) is if there is any errant growth which needs tidying up, either through tweezing or plucking.

Will my brows look very dark after the treatment?

The colour intensity will be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. This will subside and become lighter as the skin heals. This process can take up to 10 days.

Will I need to tweeze and/or tint my brows in the future?

Yes! you may have to depending on your natural hair color. Permanent makeup does not change the color of your eyebrow hairs.

EYELINER

image25

Will I need to remove my eye makeup for the treatment?

Yes, you will need to remove eye makeup prior to any eye treatment. However, please wear your usual makeup for the appointment so Michelle  can see your style. 

Should I bring my favorite eyeliner pencil?

You can but you don’t have to. If you wish a particular colour tone of eyeliner pencil to be replicated, please bring it with you to the treatment. This will help to custom blend an appropriate Permanent Cosmetics pigment.

I’ve had my lashes tinted / permed, can I still have an eye treatment?

It’s advised that any eyelash tinting or perming should be carried out at least a week before, or two weeks after the treatment.

I have sensitive eyes and I’m worried about blinking and my eyes watering during the treatment. Is that an issue?

This is not a problem; it’s actually a normal concern by first time clients but nothing to worry about. Your eyes will be closed the entire procedure time.

Will my eyes swell a lot after the treatment?

They may, it is different for everyone but the swelling is relatively minimal and usually lasts for up to 12 to 24 hours after the treatment. Ice packs can be used to minimise this.

Will I need to arrange someone to drive me home after having an eye treatment?

It’s possible that your eyes could be a little watery after the treatment. As you are advised not to drive yourself following any eye treatments, please arrange alternative travel arrangements. 

Will my eyeliner look very dark after the treatment?

The colour intensity will be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. The look can be compared with an evening eyeliner look. This will subside and become lighter as the skin heals. This process can take up to 10 days.

Can I apply mascara after the treatment?

It’s advised to wait until the treatment area has healed before applying makeup on the treated area. If you have had an eye treatment new mascara is also recommended.

LIPS

image26

Should I bring my favorite lipstick?

If you wish to achieve your favourite lipstick look, please bring it with you to the consultation. Michelle will help you find the matching color or similar.

Can permanent cosmetics cause cold sores?

No, Permanent Cosmetics do not cause or create cold sores, however, if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the body and can be aroused by the treatment.

I have a history of cold sores, can I have a lip treatment?

If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex) it’s advised that you contact your General Practitioner to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks, or obtain and use your regular medication from your local chemist. You should begin using the medication one week before and continue one week after your treatment. This will help to minimise an outbreak.

I have a cold sore on my lip at the moment; can I have a lip treatment?

No. The lips must be fully healed in order for a Permanent Cosmetics lip treatment to be performed.

Can I have a lip wax or bleaching treatment before a lip treatment?

Yes you can but a lip wax or bleaching treatment cannot be undertaken for at least two weeks prior to your Permanent Cosmetics lip treatment.

Will the lips treatment hurt?

Topical numbing cream is used throughout the treatment, to minimise the discomfort but lips can be a little more sensitive than brows or eyes. This is due to the larger surface area and greater blood supply. 

What will my lips look like immediately after the treatment?

You may experience some swelling and redness immediately after the treatment. After this you may experience tenderness, flaking, dryness, swelling and redness for approximately 2-5 days after the treatment. If you are feeling less than 100% healthy it may take longer for your treatment to heal and symptoms may appear more prominent.

Are there any foods I should avoid after the treatment?

If you have had a lip treatment, you should avoid eating spicy, food that contain citrus  and salty foods until the area has healed. You should also drink liquids through a straw and eat all foods with a fork to avoid any possible infection or discomfort.

Is it safe?  YES -- Michelle Campbell is Licensed and Board Certified Medical Micropigmentation Artist with the state of Oklahoma. Michelle is   a trained professional in the medical field with a 4 years of pre-med studies at the University of Central Oklahoma under her belt. She utilizes a 100% single-use, disposable system for each procedure. Her methods of permanent cosmetic application are controlled, gentle and safe as she is a member the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals.  Does it hurt?  Very little, if any, discomfort is experienced during the procedure. In fact, the great majority of her clients describe the sensation as a "'tickling" feeling. The anesthesia Michelle uses is of a superior grade and is extremely effective.   Will it look "natural"?  YES -- It will look more natural than your own conventional make-up. Unless you tell somebody you've had it applied, they'll never know. Michelle uses several  different techniques to create "natural-looking" hair strokes for brows, with natural age-defying shapes. Michelle has been a makeup artist for over 14 years and specializes in "natural-looking" makeup.  Michelle is very precise will use her artist's eyes to create the natural beauty of her client.   Michelle is also currently a professional Master Xtreme Eyelash artist, Threading, Waxing, Microblading, and HydraFacial MD Medical Facials.   Her rich and creamy organic pigments create the most natural shades. Several different methods of permanent cosmetic application are often used during your procedure in order to provide you with the most beautiful results. You can choose between a very dramatic look or one that is soft, powdery and subtle, including the popularly sought-after " lash line" look for eyeliner.    What is the healing period like?  Most of her clients are immediately able to return to work or their other daily activities immediately following their procedure without any embarrassment or discomfort. Her exclusive-blend of superior-strength anesthesia prevents unsightly swelling and bleeding while providing a rapid, healing period for her clients.   For approximately 5-7 days following the procedure, you will need to apply a thin film of ointment to the procedure site. During this healing period, you will notice the color soften into your skin.   How many applications are needed?  Generally, two applications are needed in order to achieve full satisfaction with your desired look. However, many of her clients are fully satisfied with just one application. If a second application is desired, it is scheduled approximately 6 weeks after the initial procedure.  How will I know who is a qualified technician?  It's crucial that you thoroughly investigate the technician's work and experience prior to scheduling a permanent procedure. Be sure to check and see her license and qualifications.   Often, I have great difficulty applying my eyeliner. It usually ends up too thick or it ends up uneven. How will the permanent eyeliner look?  Truthfully, it will look sensational. A very conservative approach is used for those who are unsure of width or color. The second application may be used as an opportunity to add more fullness or color, if desired. Permanent make-up can be applied very evenly, precisely and smoothly.   How long does a procedure take?  Including the consultation, paperwork, and numbing time, the average length of time for one procedure is approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. The second application is usually l hour or less.   May I choose my own colors?  Definitely. Colors and shades are custom-blended to match your favorite pencils. However, should you later decide upon a different color, she can either lighten, darken, or even the change the color at that time. As an expert in the field, a different color choice may be recommended, based on a personal color analysis. Although the final color choice is yours, she strongly recommends natural shades. With each procedure, only fresh and safe ingredients are used. Their rich and creamy pigments are of the highest quality and have an excellent reputation because they look so natural.     I'm allergic to most makeup, especially eye makeup. 

FAQ's

image30

Will permanent makeup be safe for me?  Absolutely. Many women choose permanent eyeliner as the solution to their sensitive eyes. Say "good-bye" to watery, runny eyes and smeary makeup forever!  However, a patch test is recommended.   How much does a permanent procedure cost?  Her permanent cosmetic procedures generally range from $400.00 to $1300.00  (Corrective procedures are generally more expensive, and are individually priced). Make absolutely certain that you understand price is actually one of the least important questions to ask in your search for a technician. A single, misplaced line may alter and detract from the beautiful features of your face.   Often, corrective work is very costly and requires extensive work. There is nothing more important than using extreme caution before selecting a technician. Make sure that she has many years of active experience, because in this business, there is no margin for error, as she is permanently altering the appearance of your face.   What if I don't like the way it looks?  If the artist is truly experienced and focuses on a "natural" look, you will be very happy with the results. However, it is important to know that depending on the pigment used, not all permanent makeup can be bleached outwith lasers, and is truly permanent.   How long does permanent makeup last?  Permanent cosmetics are permanent in that you will always have a permanent marking on your skin. However, over time, you will notice a gradual softening of color occuring each year. Many women feel that this is advantageous, as they feel that their permanent makeup will age with them.   "Color enhancements" are recommended for those who wish to keep their permanent makeup looking as fresh as possible. Generally, every 2-8 years or so, depending on color, individual body chemistry, and lifestyle. Pricing on color enhancements are greatly reduced, and individually assessed. What is the Permanent Makeup Process? 1.

Out of town clients are welcome to do a FaceTime/ Viber/ Skype consultation prior to booking a procedure date.  50% of procedure amount are due on the day of consultation if the client pass the medical history paperwork. 2.

Why does permanent makeup fade and body tattoos don’t?First of all, permanent cosmetics are a form of cosmetic tattooing and should be thought of as being “permanent”, the same as one thinks about traditional tattoos on the body. Traditional body tattoos do fade, however, generally at a slower rate due to several different factors. For instance, body art is generally covered up with clothing most of the year and is not excessively exposed to the UV rays which fade cosmetic tattoos on the face. Also, the skin on the body is much more dense as compared to facial skin, which is much thinner and again, influencing the degree of color retention. Listed are some other factors which cause permanent makeup to fade: body chemistry; cellular turnover - rejuvenation, etc. ; anti-aging products applied directly over the permanent makeup; choice of color applied (i.e., lighter colors will fade quicker than darker colors); and exposure to sunlight (hence the suggestion of wearing an SPF over your permanent makeup); and also, the technician’s choice of pigment(s) used, as well as her experience in applying permanent makeup. I have already had permanent makeup done in the past and it didn’t work on me, why?Again, this is another reason why it is important to take the time and thoroughly investigate your choice of permanent makeup technicians before “settling” on someone based on geographical convenience or pricing. The technician’s experience is key as she must understand and practice proper techniques necessary for pigment retention. Also, find out if your technician “specializes” in permanent makeup…or is this a “sideline” job for her? As in most things, the more experience, the better. Go to a “specialist”.I have already had permanent makeup done and I am unhappy with the results, what can be done now? Feel free to contact Michelle Campbell  for a complimentary consultation and expert advice.

FAQ's

How long does it take for permanent eyebrows to fade?On average, it takes 2-6 years for permanent eyebrows to fade.This mainly depends on application method and pigment color. The hand-held application method is much more delicate and thus, will fade faster. If the pigment is a light color, it will fade faster. This is due to our skin’s self exfoliating mechanism that occurs every 28 to 45 days. To preserve and prolong the appearance of permanent eyebrows, it is important to use gentle cleanser, to not over-exfoliate, and to use sunscreen thoroughly.Are there any risks involved?The treatments involve implanting pigment into the skin, so these are invasive procedures; there are risks as well as benefits. As with any invasive procedures risks can include allergic reactions, undesired results, misplaced colour, infection or scarring. Any risks are minimised due to full adherence to all Health & Safety guidelines as well as the highest quality training.


How quickly will the skin heal? Everyone is different, but as a general rule the surface skin heals between 3-7 days after the treatment, and 10-14 days below the surface. After the initial three days, the healing skin will begin to gently flake off and the treated area will lighten. In some cases it may be too light therefore to achieve the best possible results for you, it’s advised to attend the re-touch appointment (free of charge)  to refine and perfect. Many people will return to work the same day after a treatment, however, its advised not to drive after an eyeliner / lash enhancement, in case your eyes are a little swollen or watery immediately after the treatment. Do I need to take time off work after my treatment? Not unless you choose to do so. You should be able to get straight back to work immediately after your treatment. Your return to work might be affected following the Lash Enhancement or Eyeliner treatment if your work requires you to drive immediately after treatment. Driving immediately after eye procedures is not advised; therefore you should make alternative travel arrangements.Is there anything I will need to avoid doing after the treatment?  It’s recommended not to apply traditional makeup, expose the skin to extreme heat, cold or moisture, kiss, or apply certain petroleum-based ointments immediately after your treatment. Also it’s advised not to drive immediately following eye procedures. The lip area will be sensitive and to avoid the risk of infection. We do not  recommend any food or drink, touching the area immediately post the procedure. We would advise not to “bite” on your food but rather to use a fork. We will also provide you with sterile straws for your drinks to avoid anything touching your lips. These requirements are explained in full in your aftercare advice; you will receive a printed copy post treatment.What if I decide to have plastic surgery at some stage?No problem. The procedures are done conservatively, respecting the natural lines and features of the face.Can I have laser hair removal after a treatment? You must inform your laser technician that you are wearing Permanent Cosmetics prior to the treatment and they will act accordingly to accommodate for this.   Laser hair removal can fade and change the shade of your lip and brow treatment if conducted around the same area. Can I go on a sunshine holiday immediately after my treatment? Strong sun can impact on the success of the result during the immediate healing phase. Its recommended that you leave 4-6 weeks between your final re-touch procedure and your holiday.Why chose Microblading?Microblading is another term for cosmetic tattoeing. It is also known  as eyebrow embroidery, hair stokes techniques,  micro stroking, feather touch and hair like strokes is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.

***PRE PROCEDURE FOR ALL PERMANENT MAKEUP TREATMENT***

• We highly recommend you use the Homeopathic medication Arnica Montana prior to & following your Lip color/ Lip tint procedure. This homeopathic medication reduces swelling & bruising which more typically occurs with lip color than eyeliner or brow color. Arnica can be utilized for all three permanent cosmetic procedures if you bruise extremely easily.

  • Arnica Montana Directions: Can be started up to three days prior to your procedure & continued after your procedure as long as needed. The pellets should be handled as little as possible, but placed directly under the tongue, allowing quick diffusion of the medication into the bloodstream. Place 5 pellets under the tongue,  3 times a day, & allow them to dissolve. Immediately following your procedure, take 5 pellets every 15 minutes for an hour, then continue with the regular dosage until all swelling and bruising has resolved.
  • If you are having Lip color/Lip tint it is recommended to stop the blood thinning agent such as aspirin, Alka Seltzer & any other medications containing aspirin 14 days prior to your procedure, unless otherwise instructed by your physician.

• Ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, Midol, Alleve, Niacin, most migraine medications, Vitamin E, Omega 3 vitamins, fish oil, & alcoholic beverages only need to be stopped 7 days prior to your procedure to help reduce swelling & bruising. *Tylenol is a pain reliever that does not thin the blood & is fine to take prior to your procedure. The above information is not an absolute, but could help reduce swelling, bruising & recovery time!

• If you are having Lip color/Lip tint, you will be given a prescription for an antiviral medication called Valtrex. This medication prevents the aggravation of the virus that causes cold sores. Over 80% of the populations are carriers of this virus and it is a good precaution to take this medication.

  • If you are an anxious person please call your primary doctor and ask for Xanax and Lortab (or generic equivalent). You are to take one of the Xanax and Lortab no later than 45 minutes before your appointment. Be sure to bring the remaining Xanax and Lortab with you on the date of your procedure(s), in case you need to take any additional medication prior to or during your procedure. **You will need a driver to bring you to and from your procedure(s).

  • Do not use Latisse or any other eyelash growth enhancement serum for at least 7 days after the procedure.
  • Remove false eyelash extension 24 hrs prior to eyeliner procedure.

Following Lips Procedure *Keep your lips clean to prevent infection & fever blisters; no licking! for the first three days drink your beverage through a straw. Avoid salty/ spicy/ hot temperature/ acidic foods until healed. After each meal be sure to rinse your lips with cold water and BLOT them dry. 

  • Keep your lips clean to prevent infection & fever blisters; no licking! for the first three days drink your beverage through a straw.   
  • Avoid salty/ spicy/ hot temperature/ acidic foods until healed. After each meal be sure to rinse your lips with cold water and BLOT them dry. 
  • USE only natural toothpaste.
  • DO NOT use toothpaste with bleach, peroxides, chemicals, and abrasives
  • If you get fever blister be sure to purchase ABREVA (over the counter) to apply on it.
  • After scabs have come off use PawPaw ointment until the chapped feeling subsides. 
  • Put ice in a clean zipblock bag and apply it lightly to the lips to helps to reduce swelling when used within the first 48 hours in intervals of 20 minutes on and 40 minutes off. It is important to apply lightly to the lips when put pressure after you’ve put it on the lips to reduce pain. It is helpful to keep pressure on the lips when you feel the pain coming. 

•Your lips will be feel raw and  swollen for several days. You will experience redness, tenderness, itchiness and/or burning, which will subside over time. Initial bright color will usually begin to peel within 3-4 days, and may continue to peel for up to 10 days. Pigment will look very dark and bright right after the procedure. Color will fade and soften 50%-75% in about 2 weeks.  lips will be tight and dry for several weeks following the procedure. DO NOT expose your lips to prolonged sunlight for several weeks after your procedure. You may continue to use the ointment as a moisturizer after your lips heal, but it does not contain SPF, so it is a good idea to purchase lip balm containing SPF.

  • Do keep lips clean and moist with vitamin E and vaseline , use a clean cool wet washcloth tap on the lips to clean. NEVER GO BACK AND FORTH.  Apply a generous amount of Vaseline as many times as necessary during the day to keep lips moist. Apply only with a q-tip. color will continue to change a great deal after they have peeled. You will see your final color around 4-6 weeks after your procedure. Everyone heals at a slightly different rate and color retention varies for each individual based on age and health.
  • DO NOT  take hot showers or baths and avoid heavy exercise, saunas, and hot tubs for 10 days because this will cause the color to sweat out of the skin.  Apply an extra coat of Vaseline before washing treated areas, same goes for bathing or showering. This will protect the healing area from bacteria, soap and other debris or particles. Always try and wash around the treated area.
  • Avoid the sun as much as you can especially the first week. The sun fades permanent makeup. After 1 week a sun protection moisturizer, balm or chap stick can be worn to protect the color.
  • HEALING TIMELINE: 
  • Everyone heal differently, here’s a general timeline
  • Day 1-2 light to moderate swelling for eyeliner and lips. Everything will appear brighter and darker/ bolder than the healed result. You may experience discomfort for which you can take an over the counter pain reliever. 
  • Day 3 Swelling is typically almost gone. The treated area will feel tight as the scab is forming. Lips will feel very chapped. Apply VASELINE ON IT!
  • Day 4 Scab has formed, treated area feels tight. If you tend to heal faster you will experience peeling now.
  • Day 5-7 Scab will flake and fall off on its own. After the scab falls off, the brow and eyeliner may appear ashy initially due to the thin transparent layer of dead skin. Lips will appear very pale/ bright.
  • Day 14 Final healed color for brows and eyeliner
  • Day 28 Final healed color for lips
  • If your lips have not healed within one week contact our office immediately!!!!

LONG TERM AFTERCARE: PERMANENT MAKEUP

  • Use a good sunscreen (SPF 40+) daily on your permanent makeup treated areas to reduce fading. When using a tanning bed remember it will significantly fade your tattoo.
  • If you go outside a lot and love to be in the water be sure to apply baby sunblock in a stick form so it’s more convenience to re apply as instructed. 
  • Any medical treatments that includes chemicals will cause your pigment to fade quicker. 
  • Always use vaseline to your treated areas (excluding eyeliner) before getting any chemical treatment to the face.
  • Clarisonic and exfoliating products should NOT go near the treated area because it will cause fading.
  • Lips: always use a lip treatment with SPF in it to prevent color fading.

PERMANENT MAKEUP EYEBROW AFTERCARE • Apply ointment sparingly to eyebrows in the morning and the evening. Use a Q tip to apply, NEVER APPLY WITH YOUR FINGERS!!!Following All procedures:• When an area starts to peel, DO NOT PICK or SCRATCH!!!!! Let it flake or peel off on its own, otherwise you could prematurely remove color. Eyeliner usually flakes within 4-6 days. Eyebrows can take up to 10 days to flake. Lips will usually exfoliate within 5-7 days.• ABSOLUTELY no makeup, facial cleansers, chemicals or water for one week on the treated area(s) after the procedure. This includes Latisse or any other eyelash growth enhancement serum (for eyeliner procedure). When cleaning your face, clean around the areas treated.• Keep continuous water away from the treated area(s) as much as possible. DO NOT scrub or clean area. DO NOT soak treated area(s) in bath, swimming pool or hot tub.
