What is Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent Cosmetics, also referred to, as Permanent Makeup is a
relatively recent phenomenon, becoming more popular in the last 20
years. It is implanting the right color in the correct places to enhance your natural beauty. It is revolutionary beauty treatment used to define
eyebrows, eyes and lips. Paramedical procedures can also be offered to individuals who suffer from scaring and alopecia or cancer patients who are in need of reconstructive procedures. Micro Scalp Pigmentation is the newest addition, which helps clients/patients with hairline or full scalp coloring.
Our Permanent Cosmetics Hand Method
Pigmenta uses a highly evolved and unique Hand Method Application, developed and performed by Julia Bowers, to ensure the most natural looking permanent cosmetic results. The Hand Method is the most precise and gentlest way to implant permanent color into the skin. By using small hairline strokes, Julia can mimic individual hairs for eyebrows, creating a 3D Brow effect and she can create a thicker lash line and give the lips an enhanced look when used for liner.
The procedure is done without a machine or stencils and is customized to you using the same principles valued by plastic surgeons and make up artists. Julia takes into consideration your desires, complexion, and facial anatomy, giving a very soft look. Pigmenta’s results are so natural that people unaware of your procedure won’t even notice!
Pigmenta uses hypoallergenic ion-oxide based pigments in a variety of shades to guarantee the perfect custom color that the body won’t reject. Unlike machine methods, the superficial application deposits the pigment no deeper than the layer of skin that rejuvenates itself, preventing allergic reaction. Safety and sanitation is a top priority for Pigmenta, and all regulations are strictly adhered to.
You should get a Boost every 6-12 months to keep their color looking optimal. The original pigment will eventually grow out and disappear without periodic boosts.
After much demand, Pigmenta has developed a safe technique to remove and redo most past brow procedures that were done in a traditional permanent cosmetics method. The process requires multiple visits and a six-month commitment, but you will find it well worth the wait after receiving your new Hand Method Application brows from Julia.

Things to Consider Before Receiving any Permanent Make-Up Procedures:
|Pre-Treatment Advice and Procedures
Following Cosmetic Tattoo Procedure:
- Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly, or redden, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day. Lip liner may appear “crusty” for up to one week.If you are very particular, please wear your normal make-up to the procedure. If you are having lips or eyebrows done, please bring your favorite pencils.
- If unwanted hair is normally removed in the area to be treated, i.e.; tweezing or waxing, the hair removal should be done at least 24 hours prior to your procedure. Electrolysis should not be done within five days of the procedure. Do not resume any method of hair removal for a week after the procedure.
- If eyelashes or eyebrows are normally dyed, do not have that procedure done within 48 hours of this procedure. Wait one week after the eyebrow or eyeliner procedure before dying lashes or brows.
- If you wear contact lenses and are having the eyeliner done, do not wear your lenses to your appointment and do not replace them until the day after the procedure. Please bring your glasses.
- If you are having lip liner done and have had previous problems with cold sores, fever blisters, or mouth ulcers, the procedure is likely to re-activate the problem. We recommend you obtain a prescribed anti viral medication from your doctor or dentist prior to the procedure, which will surpress a breakout
- Do not use aspirin or ibuprofen for 7 days prior to your procedure.
- If you use Retin A, Accutane, Renova, Omega 3’s (Flaxseed/Fish Oil), Tretinon or any lash growth products (i.e Latisse), please make sure you stop treatment one week before and after treatment.
- If you have received any injectables or fillers such as Botox, Juvederm, Restylin please wait a week before receiving any permanent makeup.
- If you have received any deep chemical and/or mechanical peels, or if you have had laser/IPL treatments please wait a week before receiving any permanent make up
- Apply very little Vaseline on the treated area twice a day for 3 days. This is especially important after cleansing in the morning and before bedtime.
- You may apply makeup around the treated area after 72 hours, but remove only with Vaseline. To keep the area sanitary make-up has to be brand new. On the eyes apply make up only after 7 days.
- Avoid sleeping on the treated area. Try to sleep on the back, not the side or on the face.
- Absolutely no cleansing crèmes or chemicals on the treated area.
- Absolutely no scrubbing. Do not pick at the epithelial crust; allow it to flake off on its own.
- Do not soak treated area in bath, swimming pool or hot tub. Do not swim in fresh, salt or chlorinated pool water for at least 5 days.
- Do not expose treated area to full pressure of the water in the shower for at least 5 days.
- Do not to touch the treated area with your hands until healing is complete.
- Do not expose the treated area to a room with a lot of debris, smoke or steam.
- Thicker eyeliner and all full lip color will require more than one session.
- Colors appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As the healing progresses color will soften. This will take approximately 5-10 days.
- After the skin is healing the top color flakes off, your permanent make up will appear spot like and uneven as your skin does not shed the color evenly and all at once. The color my also appear to be “gone” as you go through the frosting stage. Do not worry color will reappear after your skin is completely healed, which can take up to 3 weeks.
- It is normal to lose up to 20% of the color in the initial procedure.
- If a touch up is required an appointment cannot be scheduled sooner than 4 weeks after the procedure.
- Touch ups scheduled later than 8 weeks after the initial procedure are considered a boost for an additional charge.
Failure to follow Post-Procedure instructions may cause loss of pigment, discoloration or infection. If you have any questions please contact your technician.
