ABOUT WOMEN’S PERMANENT COSMETICS
What were after is an adjustment in shade that looks like it could be your own, so to do that, we implant pigment into a very shallow layer beneath the epidermis, slightly to the upper dermis. It’s very shallow and allows for fading over the course of two to three years.You will not see any tattoo ink, our technicians work with high-quality pigments, which are shade-matched to be an exact reflection of the hairs on your eyebrows and lashes, or the pink of your lips. We work with a variety of needles, ranging from a single needle to multi-prong needles depending on the desired effect.Every appointment begins with a consultation. We always begin by discussing the end goal, and from there, we draw a template of what will be done. Once the client approves, we work with you to pick the proper shade.If you’re on blood thinners, you wouldn’t be a good candidate for permanent cosmetics, but everyone else should qualify. At The Parlor & we see a lot of demand for eyebrows, the lash line, and lips, so we have included details on on each procedure, along with what to expect.
Before the Appointment
Do research on the places you’re considering and look up reviews, as well as before and after pictures and always ask to see permits. If they don’t have a permit don’t do business with them. Liability insurance is important in the case that something goes wrong, and be sure to look around and use your judgement, the office should be clean and sterile. One way to know you’re in good hands is the use of a one-way needle. Any needles that arrive in pre-packaged and sanitized from the company are what you want, and the proper ink (not tattoo ink) should to be used.
We suggest arriving for your appointment a half hour early so that the appropriate numbing measures are taken, though be assured that your technician will continue numbing you throughout the process. After the first pass, the client is usually good to go, and they say it was more painless than they thought it would be.
Recreate your eyebrows to give you a fuller and more feathery look. Our technicians use the microblading technique to give you the best shape for your face. The process is very precise, like a very fine pen with tiny little needles at the end – needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface. The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.
Though “tattoo eyeliner” was once considered the norm, it isn’t something we do in every case. Rather we opt for a lash enhancement, which involves implanting the pigment in between the lashes to create a fuller effect over a harsh line. We follow the natural shape of the eye and place them a little thicker on the outer corners, and get thinner as I work inward. We don’t go above or below the natural lash border, and will only put a small amount at the bottom lashes to balance. It adds thickness to the lash base, and when you wake up in the morning you never look tired.
As people get older, some women will lose pigment around their lips, and the pink fades away, so we work to match the natural pink color on the inside portion of your bottom lip. We repigment the lips, and there’s the possibility to make the lips look a bit larger. We start by tracing your vermillion border, then fill in the rest of the lips with the a pink shade, and is no more than a shade or two darker than your natural hue. Healing takes about a week, and although you can expect the lips to swell a bit, we have found that most of our clients love the effect and are disappointed once it goes down.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a hair follicle replication process that helps men, women, and others suffering from Alopocia, or other types of hair loss. We have been trained by one of the top leaders in the industry, specializing in hairline tattoo treatment, care products and more worldwide. Priced around $500-$4500 depending on needs.

After the Appointment
Although there is very little downtime associated with semi-permanent makeup, you can expect your lips to be slightly swollen immediately after, your lash line to be a bit red (almost as if you’ve been crying, nothing too dramatic), and your brows will be somewhat crisp and dark. All of it should fade by a few shades within five to seven days, where the effect is softened by 50%. You can expect, the semi-permanent makeup to last anywhere from a year and a half to three years, just be careful of the ingredients in your anti-aging serums and moisturizers. “If you use retinol, vitamin C, or hydroquinone, those ingredients can and will fade the brows and lips faster almost by half, and remember sun exposure can shorten the life of semi-permanent makeup. We would recommend getting them touched up every two years.
