Permanent Makeup FAQ: Get Answers from a Professional Makeup Artist

Say goodbye to waking up extra early to put on makeup each morning! Thanks to permanent makeup, you can have beautiful eyes, lips, and brows without the daily effort. 

While permanent cosmetics are becoming more and more popular each day, there is still some confusion surrounding the technique. Our professional permanent makeup artist at AesthetiCare is dedicated to ensuring each client is well educated before making the commitment. That way, everyone who walks into our office is clear and confident about their choice to enhance their natural beauty. 

Keep reading for the answers to our most frequently asked questions about permanent makeup. 

Is permanent makeup the same thing as getting a tattoo?

No, permanent makeup is not the same as a tattoo. Both techniques use needles to push pigment into the skin; however, permanent cosmetic pigments don’t reach the same depth as tattoo ink. Also, the devices are quite different. Tattoo guns aren’t as delicate, meaning they can’t create fine strokes for natural-looking brows or safely add color to lips. 

What are the different types of permanent makeup?

There are many different types of permanent makeup, but the most common ones you’ll find in Kansas City are microblading, permanent eyeliner, and permanent lip color. Each treatment can work by themselves or you can choose multiple treatments—it’s all about what you want

Can I customize my pigment shades?

Of course you can customize your pigment shades! No two faces are alike (unless you’re an identical twin), so not everyone will require the same colors. At AesthetiCare we have a wide variety of shades to create unique colors that consider your skin undertones, hair color, and the look you’re going for.

Does getting permanent makeup hurt?

For most people, getting permanent makeup doesn’t hurt at all. We always apply a local anesthetic with every treatment to ensure you stay comfortable throughout the process. You may feel some vibrations or a pricking sensation, but other than that, the pain shouldn’t be anything intolerable. 

How long does permanent makeup last?

permanent makeup at Aestheticare provides long-lasting results

How long your permanent makeup will last depends on a few things such as:

  • Age
  • Aftercare
  • Skincare products
  • Sun exposure
  • Skin type
  • Medications
  • Immune system
  • And more

Since permanent makeup does fade over time, you will need to return to the office for touch up appointments. 

For microblading: Every 12 to 18 months

For permanent eyeliner: Every 2 to 4 years

For permanent lip color: Every 1 to 2 years

What our clients are saying

Krissy is thorough and easy to talk to. She is confident in her skills and put me at ease.

Jessica is always keeping me up to date on new and exciting treatments. Although I have done multiple Intracel treatments in the past, this time she encouraged me to add on PRP. I highly recommend. Healing time was so fast!

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!

Jennifer explained everything in details and was very diligent in making sure that the procedure and follow up went well

I was given the proper guidance and steps to take to make my skin better. I truly love the honesty, care, and time taken to help find solutions to make my skin better. The before and after pictures truly show a difference on how well the procedure works. And I’m still noticing differences as my skin continues to heal.
