Commonly Asked Questions:
Is This The Same As A Tattoo? Yes, both are permanent. With "permanent makeup," pigments are lighter and generally need touching up within
three to five years. Results will depend on age, skin tone, body chemistry, sun exposure, and exfoliation.
Is It Painful? A topical anesthetic is applied prior to and during each procedure to numb the epidermis. Since Lasting Looks works under a doctor's
supervision, we use prescription anesthetics.
Is It Affordable? Considering that "permanent makeup" lasts for three to five years before a "touch up" is needed, it is relatively inexpensive. When comparing the amount most women spend on hair styling, color, perms, and normal maintenance, then "permanent makeup" is quite the bargain.
How Safe Is It? Lasting Looks follows strict hygiene and sterilization procedures that conform to OSHA and CDC (Center for Disease Control) guidelines. Every client is administered an allergy test prior to their procedure.
What Is The Recovery Period? Most clients can return to normal daily activities immediately. Some clients may experience slight swelling or bruising, but this is usually minimal.
What If I Want To Change My Makeup? Normal cosmetics may be applied over your "permanent makeup" for color variety. Since we work with your own natural facial features to enhance them to their fullest, no applied makeup is necessary.
