Put simply, permanent makeup is a form of tattoo that’s typically used to enhance eyebrows, eyes, eyelashes, and lips. Unlike tattoos, however, the treatment uses pigments that are developed exclusively for permanent makeup, meaning they’re designed to enhance skin tones and appear more natural-looking than standard tattoo inks.
You may be an ideal candidate for permanent makeup if:
You may want to think of permanent makeup as a kind of “facial lingerie” that never leaves you naked, and can be dressed up with topical makeup whenever you want a more dramatic look.

Microblading is the name of the technique used to fill in sparse eyebrows with permanent cosmetic tattoos. It involves the application of pigments through fine needles so that the added colors look like natural eyebrow hairs. If you’re not sure whether you want permanent makeup for your eyebrows, Ms. Freehling can show you what your brows would look like during an initial, no-obligation brow appointment.
Ahead of any permanent makeup procedure, you’ll receive detailed pre- and post-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results. At the start of the procedure, you’ll receive a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and help you stay comfortable during pigment application. Most clients are surprised by how relaxing the application process can be. Once the treatment is complete, ointment will be applied to keep the area soft and help facilitate healing.
All permanent cosmetic procedures are multi-treatment processes, meaning you’ll have to return for at least one perfecting session before it can be determined if your makeup is complete. All sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart to allow ample time for healing.
Yes. Permanent makeup is actually designed to fade naturally every time your skin exfoliates, giving you room to adjust your makeup as your skin matures with age. Although many factors affect just how quickly your permanent makeup fades, lighter colors tend to fade faster. Yearly touch-ups, which are available at moderate prices, are recommended to keep permanent makeup looking fresh.
