How Permanent Makeup Works

How Permanent Makeup Works

Depending on how much you use, how often you buy it, and your brands of choice, makeup can get expensive. 

According to industry data, cosmetics companies raked in almost $50 billion in the United States in 2019. Numerous studies have found that Americans spend thousands of dollars every year on makeup, in addition to the time it takes to apply and remove it every day.

If you’ve ever wished that you could just wave a magic wand and have perfectly applied, flawless makeup that doesn’t need to be reapplied, you might be surprised to learn that this is actually an option, thanks to permanent makeup.

At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, our medical director, Dr. Nasrin Ejtemaee, and our team of master estheticians offer permanent makeup applications and a range of skin care and cosmetic treatments at our office in Ashburn, Virginia.

How permanent makeup works

The process for applying permanent makeup is similar to getting a tattoo, but the results are more subtle and natural looking depending on the application you choose. 

If you’ve always wanted thicker or shapelier eyebrows, a permanent makeup application can give you the results you’ve always wanted and free you from the trial and error of the makeup pencil.

Permanent makeup can give you darker and well-defined eyebrows, enhance lip color, provide permanent eyeliner, make your lips look fuller, and more. 

Applying permanent makeup is an art and a science, and our team of master estheticians deliver the results you’re looking for and help you save time and money on your daily makeup application in the process.

The entire process is minimally invasive. We apply a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the application process. We use small needles, similar to the process for getting a tattoo, to apply the color pigments to the top layer of your skin. 

Permanent makeup is generally safe and effective, but as with any cosmetic procedure, you should always go to a licensed and skilled esthetician to minimize your risk of side effects like infection and to ensure that you get the results you want. 

Although the makeup is considered permanent, the pigments we use can eventually fade over time and require touch-ups, but you can expect your results to last for several years or longer.
