Are you one of those people that needs an hour or two (or three) to get ready in the morning? Wouldn’t you love it if you didn’t have to spend that much time getting ready every day? Here at the office of Dr. Wendy Roberts, MD, in Rancho Mirage, CA, we have the solution. Our permanent makeup options can enhance your lips, eyes, and brows and offer natural-looking results, essentially eliminating your daily makeup routine.
How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?
The pigments applied during the permanent makeup treatment can last anywhere from two to five years. Though it won’t eliminate the need for more makeup when you want to look extra special, it makes it much easier to get ready every morning. As stated earlier, with additional touchups every few years, permanent makeup can last a very long time, as long as you take good care of your skin.
What Exactly Is Permanent Makeup?
Even though you probably spend a lot of time trying to perfect your makeup, it can be pretty tricky. If you’ve ever attempted winged liner or a cat-eye, you know what we mean. Inevitably, one always looks better than the other, unless you’re a professional makeup artist, that is. And let’s not even get started on trying to fill in and shape eyebrows! All of those reasons and more are why our permanent makeup treatments are so popular.
The process is simple: it’s a cosmetic tattoo that allows for pigments of color right into the dermal layer of your skin. This is done with a small, handheld, and sterile tool. It’s the perfect way to enhance your natural beauty and facial features. The best part is, it lasts for a couple of years and can last even longer with additional treatments and touchups.
What Are Some of the Available Treatments?
With our permanent cosmetics treatments, there’s no more checking the mirror every few minutes to ensure your eyeliner isn’t melted in the corner of your eye or that your eyebrows still look relatively normal. Think about it: how many times a day do you have to sneak a look in your compact? That’s why our treatments are designed to give our patients permanent enhancements that boost their self-esteem and make everyday life much easier.
Our permanent eyeliner treatments include traditional and lash line enhancements. The traditional treatment consists of an eyeliner tattoo that’s applied just above the lash line, giving an effect similar to liquid liner. The lash line treatment is applied directly in the lash line instead of above it to give the appearance of beautiful, thick, and full lashes. Depending on your skin and the treatment option you choose, permanent eyeliner can last anywhere from one to three years.
During the lip brushing treatment, Dr. Roberts will add a pigment layer to the skin that’s just a few shades darker than your natural lip color, giving it a subtle color change that beautifully enhances your smile. This subtle color change gives your lips a deeper definition and makes them appear much fuller. It lasts about a year before it needs a touchup treatment since the lips don’t absorb pigment as well as other areas of skin.
Eyebrow tinting is one of the best ways to give your eyebrows a full, natural look. This treatment consists of a semi-permanent dye that fills in the natural shape and arch of your brows so they look neat and defined. If you’ve got thin eyebrows, then this treatment is a great way to eliminate the hours you spend filling in your brows with pencils, gel, or powder. It lasts about four to six weeks and is the most popular treatment with our patients.
If you’re trying to drastically reduce your morning routine, permanent makeup is a great option. However, it’s also ideal for some other uses, including covering up scars. If your scars healed lighter than your skin tone, then permanent cosmetics are a great option that can be used to make them virtually disappear. This treatment adjusts your overall skin tone and balances it out to one uniform color.
If you lack confidence due to scars, permanent cosmetics can be a huge boost to your self-esteem. It can be used to cover up skin damaged by the sun and can also restore and reconstruct the appearance of nipples after having breast cancer or undergoing reconstruction surgery. The results of this treatment vary depending on the location and appearance of your scars and your skin type.
Our lash treatments can give your eyelashes the appearance of being longer, fuller, and darker. If you have thin, fragile lashes, this treatment can be a life-changing procedure. Our lash treatments consist of semi-permanent lashes, which we hand-glue over top of your natural eyelashes, adding volume and making them appear fuller and thicker.
They’re customized to fit your lash length and last much longer than fake lash strips. Once you get our lash extension treatments, they can last anywhere from six to eight weeks and will then fall out naturally, just like natural eyelashes. However, if you care for them properly, they will last the full eight weeks.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Any healthy adult with normal skin who wants to enhance their natural beauty and save time in their morning makeup routine is a suitable candidate for permanent cosmetics. If you have sensitive skin, our team will perform a quick allergy test to determine if you’re a fit candidate for permanent cosmetics. Once you’ve been approved, we’ll proceed with the treatment process so you can start looking beautiful right away.
