Permanent Makeup

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is a process that allows women to enjoy the appearance of a freshly done-up face without ever needing to put on their makeup. Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics offers permanent makeup in Scottsdale, AZ including permanent eyeliner, hair stroke eyebrows and lash enhancement to help you feel confident, save time and enjoy a more youthful appearance from morning until night.

Who is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is ideal for women who want to change their appearance and reduce the time necessary to get ready in the morning. There is no upper age limit for permanent makeup. Some medical conditions and prescription medications may impact your ability to safely and effectively enjoy permanent makeup. Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics will conduct a thorough evaluation at your initial consultation to better understand your medical history, goals, concerns and expectations. This information will help us determine if permanent makeup is the right choice for you.

Permanent eyeliner helps to shape and define the eye while enhancing color and beauty. In the hands of Kimberly, our permanent makeup practitioner, micropigmentation (similar to tattoos) produces designs that look like eyeliner and offer permanent results.

The hairstroke eyebrows procedure uses microblading to create thin, hair-like marks on the skin. This creates very natural, fuller, shapely and more defined eyebrows. Results typically last for about 18 months.

Lash enhancement gives the illusion of darker, thicker lashes without the need for fake lashes or mascara. This procedure can elevate your appearance from attractive to stunning with no downtime.

What Should I Expect after Permanent Makeup in Scottsdale, AZ?

Permanent makeup offers some of the most immediate results of any medical aesthetics procedures. Some swelling and redness is normal immediately after your session. As the area heals, results are often more pronounced and impressive. In some cases, two sessions are necessary to achieve your cosmetic goals. This will be discussed with you at your initial consultation, and Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale will also make skincare products and routine recommendations to help you extend and enhance your results.

What Does a Permanent Makeup in Scottsdale, AZ Treatment Consist of?

Permanent makeup is safe and effective for most women. There is no downtime after the procedure, and very little preparation is necessary prior to your appointment. If your procedure of choice is permanent eyeliner, do not use an eyelash curler or wear mascara or eye shadow on the day of your procedure. With hairstroke eyebrows, avoid waxing or plucking the eyebrows for at least three days prior to your appointment. Do not wear makeup to your appointment, and avoid dying your eyebrows for several days prior to your visit with us.

At your appointment in Scottsdale, your skin will be cleansed and the treatment can begin. Plan to spend an hour or more in our facility for your appointment. Permanent eyeliner is applied using a rotary tool or pen to deliver ink to the skin around the eye in the desired shape and form. In most cases, two applications are necessary at separate appointments to achieve the desired results. Hairstroke eyebrows involve applying pigmentation in hair-like strokes using a small microblade. Some discomfort is sometimes involved, but it is easily minimized with the use of a topical anesthetic.

After your procedure is complete, do not pick or scratch the area where permanent makeup was applied. This can cause uneven healing and diminish your results. No makeup should be applied to your brows or lashes for the first 72 hours. The initial color intensity of your eyeliner or brows may be sharper than you expected. It will take a little time to transition to the look you are hoping for. Avoid direct sun contact for a few days, and do not use any lotions or exfoliating products on the treated area. Some redness and swelling is normal and typically easily managed with ice packs and Tylenol.

Frequently Asked Questions About Permanent Makeup in Scottsdale, AZ

Some redness and swelling is normal, but should go away within a day. Do not apply makeup, lotions, exfoliating products for 72 hours after treatment.
Receiving permanent makeup may be slightly uncomfortable, but a topical anesthetic can minimize this temporary discomfort. It’s commonly thought that permanent eyeliner will be painful due to the close proximity to the eye area, but trained, licensed practitioners should be knowledgeable about topical anesthetics and have the ability to make the client feel comfortable throughout the procedure. Speak to your practitioner if you have special concerns regarding your permanent makeup application.
Permanent makeup costs can vary from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. Your total cost will depend on which types of permanent makeup you have applied, where you have them applied, and whether you schedule your appointment with a licensed professional at a qualified medical spa or choose a cheaper, more “budget-friendly” option. Though it may be important to you to save money, consider that permanent makeup can be very unforgiving when applied incorrectly. In contrast to regular makeup, it can’t be easily removed. Consider what is most important to you when scheduling your appointment for permanent makeup: Is it simply saving money, or do you want the assurance that your eyebrows, lips, and the rest of your face are in good hands?
First, you should think about how you normally wear eyeliner. Are you looking for a simple enhancement of your eye area, or do you want to make a stronger statement? Work with us to achieve the look you want, and remember that while it will last for a while, your permanent liner choice is not a lifelong commitment, and it will fade over the next few years. You can also opt to get a thicker line in the future if you want a bolder change. It’s also important to note that this isn’t a traditional tattoo. The ink is only applied to the first few layers of your skin, unlike a tattoo deposited deeper into the skin’s layers. Permanent eyeliner practitioners also use a hypoallergenic ink that is less likely to cause a reaction in sensitive individuals (though if you have concerns about allergies, it’s important to talk to your medical team before receiving any sort of tattoo procedure).
It won’t last forever, but it will remain on your face for quite a long time without needing to be altered or touched up. On average, your new permanent makeup will last for three to five years. If rolling out of bed in the morning with a perfectly made-up face interests you and you don’t mind investing in a high-quality application by a professional, get in touch with us, and we can help you make a plan for your individualized permanent makeup.
If you’re considering permanent eyebrow makeup, you may be thinking of standard “tattoo” makeup that is applied as eyeliner and lip color. You’ve likely heard the term microblading, and while this is a type of semi-permanent makeup, it’s not exactly the same as tattoo makeup. Microblading is used only on eyebrows, and it can be used in conjunction with other permanent makeup techniques or on its own to create the illusion of full, nicely shaped brows. Permanent makeup is another option for those who do not wish to have their brows microbladed. Your makeup professional will likely use a stencil to create the perfect shape for your brows based on your face’s shape and create the look with tiny, upward strokes.
Eyeliner enthusiasts who are shying away from permanent liner application due to the fear that it will look too heavy or “too permanent” may be surprised by the subtle results you can achieve with a professional application. If you’re getting permanent makeup for the first time, try to opt for minimalism over a bold statement. Speak with your practitioner to determine the best look for your face shape.
