Permanent MakeUp


Similar to tattooing, Permanent Makeup is a non-surgical technique in which a tiny quantity of color pigment is placed in the skin and settles under the top layer of the skin. However, unlike a tattoo, the objective is a very subtle enhancement of color that looks as natural as possible. The end result should look similar to professionally applied makeup, with the exception that it will stay on permanently day and night and can last for years. Permanent Makeup procedures are made comfortable for the client by applying a topical anesthetic. The recovery time is typically minimal. Permanent Makeup is care free, waterproof and will not smudge or run. It can also be referred to as Permanent Cosmetic, Micropigmentation, Dermapigmentation, Semi Permanent Makeup and Embroidery. However, the pigments do fade over a period of 1-3 years, depending on skin health and lifestyle.

Permanent cosmetics are not necessarily intended to replace makeup completely. When you want to kick up your heels and go out for a night on the town, or simply want a different look, you can apply as much additional makeup as you wish. Permanent cosmetics can provide a great alternative to those who suffer from hair loss, alopecia, over-tweezing or thinning eyebrows.  It is also a great alternative for the busy professional or athlete who needs to look her best all the time.

A few other cosmetic procedure that are done using the same technique as Permanent Makeup are Paramedical tattooing which helps to restore pigment, matching a person's natural skin tone. Also scar camouflage is a procedure of implanting the natural skin color over scars, burns, injuries and unwanted surgery scars. Repigmentation of the breast is meant to redesign and replace one or both areolas usually from a mastectomy. The loss of color pigment in the skin from Vitiligo can also be replaced by implanting color that matches the skin.

Can I choose the shape and the color?

You will have discuss shape and color with your PMU Artist. In proposing a design for you, we will consider age, personality, current use of makeup, daily activities and the color and undertones of your skin.  The artist will also consider the shape of your lips, structure of your brow bone, or curvature of your eyelid before creating the shape outline. Once the design has been drawn on, you must approve before the procedure occurs. 


Will my eyebrow hair continue to grow?

Yes. To maintain the shape of the tattoo, we recommend tweezing, threading, or getting electrolysis to remove any hairs that grow outside of your PMU brows pattern. We do not advise waxing.


Is this the same as a tattoo?

Microblading and Permanent Makeup are similar to tattoo. However, instead of using regular tattoo equipment and needles, we use only state of the art digital technology specifically formulated for Permanent Makeup procedures. Our equipment is quiet, precise and more gentle for use on the face. 

Are the pigments safe?

We only use pigments specially-formulated for the face. Our pigments are of the highest grade and quality, and are strictly tested and regulated. 


What is the difference between Permanent and Semi-Permanent?

All are permanent, since something is being implanted into the skin. Even with removal, there will always be traces of pigment left behind.


How long will the Permanent Makeup last?

Even though we call as Permanent, the color will fade naturally over time and you will need to have the color touched up. The time it takes to fade depends on the client's skin, health, lifestyle and touch-up maintentence. Generally, this is between one to five years depending on procedure. 

The following timeframes are typically recommended for touch ups:

  • Permanent Brows : 2 years

  • Permanent Eyeliner : 2-5 years

  • Permanent Lips : 2-5 years

  • Hairline Receding :  1-2 years

  • Scalp Micro-Pigmentation : 2-5 years

  • Paramedical Areolas : 2-5 years

  • Dark eye circle Camouflage : 2-3 years

How long does an appointment normally take?

The average time for a permanent makeup procedure is three hours. Before application, the client will undergo a consultation which includes discussion of medical history, lifestyle, personality, design, color, and any questions or concerns. After a topical numbing agent has been applied, the design will be drawn on for review. Tattooing itself takes between 30 and 90 minutes depending on tissue response.   


I have a darker complexion, is the procedure ideal for me?

Yes! Permanent cosmetics are beneficial for all skin types and ages.


Does age matter?

No!  We treat a wide range of clients.  The only restriction by law is that you must be 18 years of age.  We have found this treatment particularly beneficial for seniors who have lost the dexterity and steadiness needed to apply makeup.  We want everyone to feel beautiful!


Do you shave the eyebrow before you do an eyebrow procedure?

No, the hair is left in place. Any excess hair that is outside of the new design pattern will be removed as desired.  


I don't have any eyebrow hair at all — will this look fake?

3D Permanent Hairstroke Brows are meant to look as real as possible. Each individual stroke resembles an eyebrow hair, so the result is a realistic permanent brow. Hair stroke permanent brows look much more real than the pencil you may be applying.


Do microblading or permanent makeup procedures hurt?

Here at Anna Jasmiez Beaute we do our best to keep you comfortable and relaxed with a gentle touch and topical numbing agents. The majority of our clients are pleasantly surprised by the pain level experienced, and many consider it less painful than a regular tattoo since there are less needles involved and a numbing agent is applied. We recommend that clients take Tylenol prior to the procedure and drink plenty of water to hydrate the skin. Do not take Motrin, Aspirin or any type of blood thinner prior to a procedure.
