PERMANENT OR SEMI-PERMANENT MAKE-UP
Practical and aesthetic solution
As my concern is focused on the harmony of the face, I mainly focus on restoring a natural balance of facial shapes by working the eyebrows, the eyes and sometimes the skin.
My knowledge of color also allows me to practice restorative pigmentation; it’s another field of application that gets great results.
Permanent makeup offers many benefits and is aimed at both men and women, with no age limit.
The Procedure Allows…
The technique consists in implanting natural pigments under the superficial layer of the skin, in the middle dermis, thus giving a visible coloration by transparency. This work is performed using a high-tech electronic device with a disposable needle.
I use natural sterile medical pigments, meeting the highest standards. They are a precise blend of non-toxic organic and inorganic pigments, they have chromatic stability and do not cause allergenic reactions. It is important to point out that because of the quality of my pigments they fade over time and therefore do not change color as some pigments of lower quality.
THE LIFETIME OF PIGMENTATION
The duration of the pigmentation is about 1 to 3 years, depending on the chosen color, cell regeneration, sun exposure and skin type. Moreover, it is highly desirable that the implanted pigments do not last “for life”, since morphology and traits change and evolve over time! The ideal is to revive the color, if necessary to 2 to 3 years, and even to correct if necessary.
CONSULTATION AND PROCEDURE
All the services are carried out under conditions of rigorous hygiene and with equipment of last technology.
It takes from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the type of intervention.
The “typical” service includes a consultation before the session:
The consultation includes the opening of the file, the health check and explanations.
Thereafter I proceed to the delivery with the choice of the color, the drawing-guide and the pigmentation (with anesthesia). Because of a high-tech equipment, the sensation of pain is almost nonexistent.
For the eyebrow procedure, I use the « hair stroke » method, drawing small strokes against each other, to give the impression of provided and natural eyebrows.
Immediately after treatment, redness may be slightly apparent, but it will disappear after one hour. There is no swelling except a few times for the eye area, but all fades after 24 hours.
The color of the pigment will be darker than expected at the beginning and for about 4 to 5 days. The final color will be visible after about 2 weeks.
You can restart your activities normally, from the first day of treatment. However, it is desirable to avoid exposure to the sun for the first 10 days, the pool, steam room and sauna, as well as the exfoliation or peeling.
RETOUCH AND PRICE
Normally only one session is sufficient, but if a touch-up is necessary, it can be done after 4 to 5 weeks.
After 2 to 3 years the color will fade and a refreshment session can be done according to your needs and this at lower costs.
Makeup prices can vary from one technician to another and also fluctuate from one client to another, depending on the work to be done, the type of skin, the requirements and the time required to complete the treatment.

Since this is your face and the makeup will be permanently visible for a while, it is very important to be confident and make the right choice.
In addition, it must be ensured that the technician has professional liability insurance for permanent makeup.
