Permanent Makeup

Available in Pittsburgh, PA

What is permanent makeup?

Permanent* makeup helps simplify the lives of women who apply makeup every day. It is ideal for those who enjoy an active lifestyle, but not the inconvenience of having to continuously reapply makeup.

Types of permanent makeup

  • Permanent lip makeup
  • Lip liner
  • Permanent eye makeup
  • Eyeliner
  • Permanent eyebrow makeup

Performed in Pittsburgh, permanent makeup is ideal for women who may suffer allergic reactions to the ingredients found in makeup, while other women use permanent makeup because it may be difficult to apply makeup evenly due to age or physical impairment.

Treatment information

Semi-permanent makeup and permanent makeup application, which usually takes an hour or longer, involves the micro-implantation of mineral extract into the skin. The colors used for permanent makeup application are selected based on individual skin tone and preference. All of the pigments used in permanent makeup and semi permanent makeup application are FDA-approved and allergy-tested. Immediately following the procedure there may be some slight swelling at the treatment area. The area must be kept clean and excessive sun exposure should be avoided.

The benefits of semi permanent makeup and permanent makeup application at The Skin Center Medical Spa include:

  • Long-lasting results
  • FDA approved pigments
  • Allergy tested ingredients
  • Wide variety of colors to suit every skin tone
  • Topical anesthetic minimizes discomfort

In Pittsburgh, permanent makeup treatments are performed in our Mt. Lebanon, PA med spa location.

Does permanent makeup application hurt?

Prior to the application, a topical desensitizing gel may be applied to the treatment area to help minimize any discomfort. Most individuals describe the permanent makeup application as feeling like a slight prickling sensation.

How long does permanent makeup last?

Gradual fading of the makeup can be expected. The fading process varies among individuals and is dependent on the specific shade used during permanent makeup application. Most colors last 3 to 5 years, although some may not fade for as long as ten years.

How do I decide which color pigment to use on my skin?

Prior to your treatment you will have a private skin consultation. During the consultation your medical esthetician will discuss the reasons for choosing permanent makeup application and assess your natural skin tone. Most people choose permanent make to enhance their facial features—lining or deepening the lip color; highlighting the eye area or adding color to the cheeks—and therefore choose a neutral color that is not driven by the latest fads.
