Benefits of Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation, offers several benefits:

  • Time-Saving: One of the biggest advantages of permanent makeup is the time it saves. People with busy schedules, mothers, athletes, and those with physical limitations can have a full-face makeup look without spending time applying it daily.
  • Smudge-Proof: Permanent makeup stays in place without smudging or fading throughout the day. It's a great option for those who live in hot climates, people who sweat a lot, or anyone who struggles with keeping their makeup intact all day.
  • Perfect for Sensitive Skin or Allergies: For those who have skin sensitivities or allergies to conventional makeup, permanent makeup can be an excellent alternative.
  • Cost-Effective in the Long Run: While the upfront cost of the procedure might seem high, it can actually save money in the long run when you factor in the cost of buying makeup over the years.

What Can Permanent Makeup Address?

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, can address a variety of cosmetic and medical issues:

  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Permanent makeup can enhance features such as eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips. It's often used to create a natural-looking brow where hair has been lost due to aging or disease, or to add definition to the lash line or fullness to the lips.
  • Allergies to Traditional Makeup: Individuals who are allergic to conventional makeup products can opt for permanent makeup as a way to avoid allergic reactions.
  • Difficulty Applying Makeup: People with physical conditions that make it challenging to apply makeup, such as tremors or vision loss, can benefit from permanent makeup.
  • Active Lifestyle: For those who lead an active lifestyle or participate in sports that cause traditional makeup to sweat off, permanent makeup is a practical solution.

    Treatment Options

    Techniques similar to Permanent Makeup include microblading and tattooing. Dr. Truong will explain the differences and help you choose the best option for your unique needs during your consultation.

    What happens during The Procedure?

    The Permanent Makeup procedure begins with a consultation, followed by designing the desired shapes, choosing the perfect pigment, and then the application process. You may feel a slight discomfort during the procedure, but a topical anesthetic will be used to minimize any pain. Post-procedure, you can expect some swelling and redness which will subside within a few days.


    Recovery from Permanent Makeup involves some initial redness and swelling, which subsides within a few days. The color intensity of your makeup will gradually lighten over the first week. Complete healing takes about 4-6 weeks.

    Post-Operative Care

    After the procedure, it’s important to keep the treated area clean and moisturized. Avoid sun exposure and strenuous activities that may cause sweating for about a week. These steps are crucial to ensure the pigment sets well and to prevent any infections.

    Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

    Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation, can address a variety of mild to moderate issues:

    • Sparse Eyebrows or Lashes: Permanent makeup can help individuals with thin or sparse eyebrows or lashes by creating the appearance of fuller, well-defined brows and lash lines.
    • Pigmentation Issues: Mild pigmentation issues, such as hypo-pigmentation (light spots) or hyper-pigmentation (dark spots), can be camouflaged with permanent makeup.
    • Alopecia: This condition causes hair loss, often in patches. Permanent makeup can be used to simulate the appearance of eyebrows or eyelashes lost due to alopecia.
    • Vitiligo: Permanent makeup can camouflage small areas affected by vitiligo, a skin disorder that causes the loss of skin color in blotches.
