Permanent Makeup

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is also referred to as micro pigmentation, That is implanted into the skin with either a hand tool or by a machine. Essentially, permanent makeup is a tattoo that resembles makeup to enhance a certain feature of your face, such as beautiful brows, or a defined lash line.

Why permanent makeup?

We all know that living in the hot Arizona desert is a constant battle of trying to keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day without the constant smudging.

With permanent makeup, you can wake up ready to go and looking beautiful with little to no work at all.

Permanent makeup is a convenient time saver with your everyday lifestyle. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who has a vision problem, tremors, shaky hands, seasonal allergies, and or allergies to regular makeup. The list goes on and permanent makeup is the perfect solution for that.

Permanent Makeup Treatments



Hair-like strokes for brows. The Intradermal Pigmentation procedure for eyebrows can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows will love the procedure (and the time saved not applying makeup). Those who used to apply pencil or powder can go swimming, play tennis, or wipe their forehead without the embarrassment of losing their eyebrows. Those suffering from alopecia (hair loss) are pleasantly surprised at how natural it looks.



A subtle, natural look, mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes with the implantation of pigments in the lash line is popular with both male and female clients. Additional shadowing of color can be added for a soft natural liner or a bolder, definite line. Ophthalmologists recommend intradermal cosmetic procedures for those who are allergic to conventional makeup and for those wearing contact lenses.

Scar Camouflage

Price Varies

Scars and skin imperfections from surgeries or other injuries can easily be camouflaged using paramedical cosmetic tattooing. Micro-Pigmentation’s ability to break up scar tissue and color it to match your natural skin tone can provide great results that will build your confidence in your appearance, Scar Camouflage is also a great way to cover Vitiligo (a dermatological condition characterized patches of skin discoloration and pigment destruction.) This may vary from one or two white spots on the skin to large areas of depigmentation. For some people, although not for everyone, the depigmentation is progressive. Permanent Makeup can help cover up and fill-in these light patches of skin by color-matching your skin tone and evening out the color with scar camouflage.

Color Corrections

Price Varies

Unfortunately, there is such a thing as bad permanent makeup. Have you received a permanent cosmetic procedure you aren’t quite happy with? I have helped many of my clients who have had a bad experience with permanent cosmetics achieve a soft natural look while correcting there previous procedure. Please text or email a clear photo of your current permanent makeup to me that you would like corrected and we can discuss further. If you are unable to do either, contact me to set up a consultation.

Full Lip Color/ Lip Blushing


The intradermal pigmentation procedure for lip color is beautiful. It can appear to change the size and shape of the lips as well as the color. This procedure helps prevent lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin. Many people request a soft pink, similar to the lip color of an infant, for a natural look. Others may desire a more dramatic/make up look effect.

Powder Brow


Powder brows is a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup technique designed to create eyebrows with a soft powder effect, very similar to powder makeup. The powder effect is done with a shading technique using a permanent makeup device, which is similar to a tattoo gun.

Frequently Asked Questions

We all no that living in the hot Arizona desert is a constant battle of trying to keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day without the constant smudging.  With permanent makeup you can wake up ready to go and looking beautiful with little to no work at all. Permanent makeup is a convenient time saver with your everyday lifestyle. It's the perfect solution for anybody who has vision problem, tremors, shaky hands, seasonal allergies and or allergies to regular makeup. The list goes on and permanent makeup is the perfect solution for that.

This is the process of infusing pigment into the skin with a sterile micro needle to simulate the appearance of natural hair strokes. Hair strokes are meant to be a subtle, natural enhancement and to create fuller more beautiful brows. They are not meant to replace makeup.

This is the process of infusing pigment into the skin with a permanent makeup machine to simulate the appearance of  filled in brows. This is a good option for you if you consider yourself a perfectionist! You have the options to do microblading and shading separately, or combined! Whatever fits your style.

I use a very high grade Topical anesthetic to make you comfortable during your procedure. Almost all my clients have little to no discomfort. However pain tolerance varies from client to client. Having the procedure done during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity.

There will be slight swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure (Please no Heavy exercise, shower water on brows, or sleeping on face/sides for 7 days after; and no Excessive sun exposure, swimming pools, saunas, brow makeup, facials, etc for 14 days after.) Complete healing takes 1-5 weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color.

Yes! Tattooing has been done for hundreds of years and is very safe if sanitary precautions are followed properly. I employ proper OSHA sterilization and follow strict sanitary guidelines. My room is completely sterilized and wiped down with medical grade antiseptic before and after each client. New gloves are used for every client.  NO needles are ever reused.  EVER!

Initial appointments typically take 2 hours for one procedure. I block this much time away for our discussion, designing process (I draw on the brows initially), numbing, implantation of the pigment process, and then the aftercare. Follow-up (“Retention Check”) session that is scheduled 6 weeks – 10 weeks later only takes about 1 hour and is the same process, before/after care, etc.

Where both procedures involve tattooing the skin, in traditional tattooing, pigment is added to the third layer of the skin, where in permanent makeup pigment is added to the second layer of the skin, called the Dermis, creating a final result of a soft blend of color to the tattooed area.

Depending on what procedure you are getting done, your lifestyle, health, sun exposure, and more, typically permanent makeup will last anywhere between 1-5 yrs.  However Permanent makeup will soften with time. The rate of the fading is determined by your skin (oily or dry), exfoliating agents you may use, sun exposure, medications you take, your health, metabolism, etc. This is why I recommend that you get it touched up every 1-2+ yrs (also known as “color refresh” or “retouch” appointment).

*Please note that final results vary and CANNOT be guaranteed due to the nature of skin as it heals. The follow-up appointment is recommended around 6 weeks where we can assess your pigment retention and make any changes necessary. That first time follow-up appointment done in 6-12 weeks is the same process only quicker!

Oily Skin: Increased oil production can cause hair strokes to blur and heal lighter.

Smoking: Smokers may notice that their Semi-Permanent Cosmetics will fade faster

Anemia and iron deficiency: Your body will absorb these iron based pigments more quickly.

Sun exposure: Increased exposure to the sun will cause premature fading overtime. You will want to use a good quality sunscreen for your Semi-Permanent Makeup after you have healed (2+ weeks after).

Age and metabolism: The Faster your metabolism is, the quicker the pigment will fade.

Bleeding during the procedure: Excessive bleeding during your procedure will greatly affect how your body retains pigment. While this is not entirely in our control, it is important that you follow before care instructions to help minimize bleeding. This includes avoiding caffeine 1-2 hours before, also avoiding blood-thinning medications, aspirin, ibuprofen and alcohol 72 hours before your procedure. (If prescribed by a doctor, it is recommended that you consult with them first*) (Tylenol or acetaminophen is okay!)
