What is permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup uses tattoo techniques to enhance or reproduce your features. Patients often get permanent makeup on their face, eyebrows, lashes, and lips. You can also get cosmetic tattooing to improve scars or uneven coloring of the skin (vitiligo) and restore the areola around a woman’s nipple after breast surgery.
Why get permanent makeup?
If you are looking for a permanent makeup solution or want to correct uneven skin coloring or features lost due to aging, a medical condition, or scarring, permanent makeup may be right for you.
