Now combine this with the steep costs associated with purchasing makeup and it is not surprising the demand for Quality Permanent Makeup Solutions here in the Fredericksburg VA | Stafford VA area as well as any other areas has been rapidly increasing!
What exactly is Permanent Makeup:
Permanent Makeup also known as Micro-pigmentation or Cosmetic Tattooing, consists of placing natural pigments (color) under the upper layers of the skin using a small Pen-Like tool. The results of Permanent Makeup create a naturally painless lasting result that lasts for years. Permanent Makeup is similar to tatooing, but is much less invasive and differs in the types the of color used crearing a much more subtle approach than conventional tatooing.
Is the Treatment Safe?
Permanent Makeup is a very minor procedure, but still we follow the strictest of regulations. Our Office, and the equipment used complies with all relevant health and safety requirements. All needles are disposable, sterile and of the highest quality. Sterilization and hygiene are of the utmost importance before, during, and after our treatment.
Eyebrows: (Our Specialty)
Eyebrows are the cornerstone to any perfect face, they support and complement the eyes, and play a large part in facial expressions. Eyebrows that are exceedingly sparse or missing entirely at birth, genetics, improper plucking, or scars, can definitely be enhanced by providing a natural permanent eyebrow. Eyebrows are not just marked on, but are drawn in a very detailed form showing the fine hairs, and blending in with your existing brows thus making it difficult to distinguish between our work and naturally prepared brows.
Permanent Eyeliner is placed within the upper or lower Lash Line emphasizing your eyes and making your lashes appear darker and fuller. The exact color or thickness can be customized according to your wishes.
Thin, unsymmetrical, and color-faded lips; unfortunately, only a few of us were born with perfect lips. Besides genetics, and the environment, the aging process can cause our lips to age faster than skin on any other part of our body, and, lips can actually appear to get smaller. This is a normal part of aging process. Permanent Makeup can be a great solution to fix the problem. Stunning- sexy lips are created by adding natural color where needed, achieving instant fullness and definition. Subtle corrections can be made to thin, uneven or unsymmetrical lips and the size and shape can be altered as desired. Facial lines around the mouth are instantly camouflaged and best of all lipstick bleed will become a thing of the past.
Areola Restoration, Scarring, Color matching and other misc procedures
Permanent makeup can be applied to areolas to hide scars left behind after surgery, including producing a new areola in the case of mastectomy. Discolorations of the skin can be covered with permanent makeup, adding color to the areas that lack color thus disguising the problem. Please contact us for other specific requests.
All appointments in our Fredericksburg office are precluded by an extensive Consultation which is designed to provide qualified prospective clients information about the procedure, maintenance, and expectations etc. , and also to screen for clients with certain medical conditions who should not have Permanent Make up (see Faqs section).
Your decision to do Permanent Makeup can be a stressful and emotional one. It is critical when working with areas like eyebrows, for proper placement, alignment, and correctly shaded colors, otherwise, this could ruin your result. At Cool Looks Salon we understand this and with this in mind, our technician will actually draw in your eyebrows with a semi- permanent material in the same manner in which you decided during your consultation. This will allow you to actually temporarily experience your results for a few days and note concerns that you may have before they are made permanent. All too often we have seen clients who rushed into the procedure and noted after the fact that their placement and / or symmetry, or color was off.
Our procedure includes a free follow up visit approx 1 month from the day you had the procedure for any touch up work that may be necessary.
