Permanent Makeup, also known as Micro-pigmentation, has a softer, more natural look than you might think! Eliminate the hassle of applying your eyeliner or drawing your eyebrows on everyday. Never worry again about smeared makeup if you've had to rub your eyes or scratch an eyebrow. You can enjoy eating and drinking without having to reapply lipstick to your lips!
You will find Permanent Makeup is great if you suffer from allergies and frequently smear makeup due to itchy or watery eyes. It's also a great alternative if you have allergies or sensitivities to cosmetics. If you are older and have poor vision or an unsteady hand which makes makeup application difficult, Permanent Makeup is right for you!
My name is Heidi Miller, I am a licensed Cosmetologist, and certified in Micro-pigmentation from The Nevada Academy of Micro-pigmentation in 2007. I use the Softap system, which is done by hand rather than a machine. I believe it is the most effective, comfortable technique, while also being kinder to the skin.
Permanent Eyeliner can be applied to upper or lower lash-lines or both. I like to create a natural looking enhancement for you. It can also be just a "lash enhancement" where the eyes are defined with a natural look rather than a distinct line. During the consultation, we will determine which of these, as well as choice of color, best suits your style!
Permanently tattooed eyebrows are done to create the look of a fuller brow. A great choice for anyone with sparse eyebrows or even if you have total hair loss due to age or medical conditions.
Permanent micro-pigmentation on your lips can enhance your natural color or can be fun and vibrant with your favorite lip color! Your shape can be defined and perfected, creating a fuller look. Your lips can be outlined or completely filled in with color. As we age, our natural pigment fades and recedes; Permanent Makeup can restore the youthful color and fullness!
I use a topical anesthetic, which makes it relatively painless! Sometimes slight bleeding will occur during the procedure, swelling will last for about a day, but is relieved with short applications of ice. I will give you exact instructions on how to care for your new permanent makeup, an ointment to apply continually for 10 days, as well as what to expect from day to day of the healing process. I will set up a time for your follow up after 6 weeks, I like to do this to fill in any "holidays" where the pigment may have escaped and make sure you are satisfied with the results. This appointment is included in the price. Our first session usually takes between 90 minutes to 2 1/2 hours, depending on consultation time, the procedure, your level of comfort, and the skin's response. The 2nd application usually takes about an hour.
If you live in Carson City, Reno, Gardnerville, Minden, Lake Tahoe or the surrounding areas schedule an appointment for a complimentary consultation with me, you will be in great hands!
