Permanent makeup is getting popular because:

  • Patients suffering from diseases like muscle weakness, joint pains, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, stroke survivors these conditions make it difficult for them to apply make-up.

 Is permanent make-up really permanent?

  • Yes, it is considered permanent. It lasts for around 2-5 years after which a touch-up might be needed.

  •  Over the time, and with the elements your face is exposed to, there will be some natural fading. The amount of time required for this, varies for each person.

  •  While permanent makeup pigment remains in the dermis its beauty-span may be influenced by several possible factors. These can be environmental, procedural or individual factors. Sun exposure diminishes color. The amount and color of pigment deposit at the dermal level can affect the length of time that permanent makeup looks its best.

 What are the differences between manual hand tool and Digital machine?

  • At Million Dollar Brows we uses both manual tool and digital instrument for different producers. Some clients are comfortable in using the manual one’s while others ask for the Digital procedure through advanced machines.

  • We are expert at using the traditional tattoo coil machines, the pen or rotary machine (includes the digital rotary machines) and the non-machine or hand device. The process includes a consultation, the application of pigment, and at least one or more follow up visits for evaluating the healed design work and color of the pigment.

 How long does it last?

It lasts for approximately 1-5 years.

 How long is the healing process?

For complete healing, the process might take from 4 to 6 weeks depending on your body cells regeneration, age, immune system and lifestyle.

 Does it hurt?

Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. Some clients find the procedure a little painful, whereas other clients report no distress at all.  A combination of anesthetics are used, first a topical numbing cream and then a local anesthetic in order to control any pain.

  • Touch ups are a part of the process.
