About Derma Color

Hello and thank you for your interest in permanent makeup. It has been my privilege to provide a solution for busy and active women for over 20 years as a full time Professional Permanent Makeup Artist. As a pioneer in the profession, I have had the opportunity to study and assist in the development of many different techniques and methods of application of permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, lip color, and scar camouflage. I am certified with all the appropriate regulatory agencies and a member of many professional organizations. I love art. Your permanent makeup is face art … select your artist carefully.

Q. Is this procedure really permanent?

A. How permanent the color is depends upon the skill of the technician, experience, and color selection. Color will fade over time however the basic shape will last many, many years. Darker colors as in eye liner hold up much longer that lighter colors such as in lips. Individual skin type and lifestyle impact permanent makeup longevity.

Q. Does it hurt?

A. Most people experience little discomfort. A topical anesthetizing solution is used to keep the area comfortable.

Q. What about allergic reactions?

A. Allergic reactions are very rare.

Q. How will I know what the results will look like?

A. Your permanent makeup is designed for your bone structure and facial features. The colors are created to compliment your skin tones and eye color. A basic pattern is drawn on your face prior to the permanent makeup application.

Q. Can I go to work the next day?

A. Yes, if you don’t mind your makeup looking dark and dramatic. It lightens and appears healed in 4-5 days. Most people don’t mind the makeup being dark for a few days.

Q. What is the risk of infection?

A. Everything has the potential risk of infection; HOWEVER, with proper hand washing and following of the written aftercare instructions, infection is rare.

Q. Is this like tattooing?

A. Yes. The equipment may be somewhat different however you are having color implanted into the skin for a permanent change.
