FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I really look like myself…only better?

Permanent makeup is not intended to replace cosmetics completely.  Because the color is placed “in” your skin and not “on” your skin, a more natural, softer look results. When you’re ready for a special occasion, you can apply as much additional makeup as you wish.

How long will my permanent makeup last?  

Permanent makeup is long-lasting.  However, as you become accustomed to your new makeup, it’s not uncommon to want more.  You may want to freshen up your new makeup every couple years.  The darker the color, such as black, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin.  More natural, delicate colors are sometimes vulnerable to the effects of sun, swimming and breakdown by the body.  As a general rule, eyeliner, and lip color have the longest longevity, approximately 2 to 7 years, depending upon the color used.  Eyebrows may not need a touch up for 1 to 5 years. 

How Long Does Each Procedure Take?

Approximately 1 to 2 hours.  There will be an additional follow up procedure that will take place about 30 to 45 days from the day of the initial procedure.

Is Permanent Makeup Painful?

Permanent makeup procedures are semi-invasive and there maybe some discomfort.  It really does vary on each individual’s threshold for pain, but the sensation can be compared to tweezing.  A topical anesthetic is used to numb the areas.

What is the after care?

  • Brows – Do not pick, peel or force exfoliate while they are healing (usually about 7 days). Do not apply any additional makeup to the area while they are healing. Pat Vaseline or Polysporin on with a clean finger and splash only water on them during the healing process.  You will experience 30% to 50% fading with the 1st application.
  • Eyes – Apply a light coat of Vaseline or Polysporin with a Q-tip before washing your face in the PM and wipe excess off with a damp cloth.  Continue this process for 4 days.  You can wear mascara on the tips of your lashes in 24 hours if you purchase a new tube, otherwise don’t wear any eye makeup for 4 days.  You will experience 30% to 50% fading with the 1st application.
  • Lips – Immediately following the treatment there may be some swelling.  This will usually last no more than 24 hours.  Apply Vaseline or Polysporin to lips throughout the day whenever they feel dry.  You will experience dryness, similar to chapped lips.  Do not force peel lips when they start to peel.  You will experience 30% to 50% fading with the 1st application.

What methods of application does Endless Beauty use? What is the difference between the methods?

We use three application methods: digital, softap, and microblading.

Digital micropigmentation, SPMU is colour that is tattooed into the skin using a digital state of the art machine. Semi permanent makeup creates make up that does not wash off, looks good, stays put and lasts for about 3 to 5 years. It is a revolutionary method of inserting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin in order to enhance facial features. Because the colour is placed ‘in’ your skin, for a softer, more natural looking results. From natural hairstroke eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner or full lip colour, you can have make up that lasts 24/7. Colour is added carefully on an initial procedure, and then adjusted/completed in a second session, which is undertaken after 4/6 weeks after allowing the colour to settle.  

Softap: SofTap Permanent Cosmetics is the most natural way to look your best, 24/7. The SofTap hand method use 100% disposable hand tools to gently and delicately implant permanent color into the skin. ... Permanent eyeliner is gentle, long lasting, and permanent lips are soft and full.  Colour is added carefully on an initial procedure, and then admljusted/completed in a second session, which is undertaken after 4/6 weeks after allowing the colour to settle.  

Microblading: The Microblade technique creates natural defined hair strokes using a manual tool. Touch-ups with micro-blading do not produce smudged or blurry hair strokes and this technique is perfect for the oh so natural client seeking perfection. The technician will choose needles and the blade type according to the technique and the skin type. The pigment is bladed just below the epidermis and the most shallow part of the dermis, making extremely fine natural looking hair strokes. A very natural result is achieved, as the hairs are bladed into the skin according to the natural hair growth direction. A touch up is included 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment.

 The hand tool is dipped into pigment and then delicately grazed into the skin. The treatment is still considered a tattoo because the pigment is implanted into the skin but the use of a hand tool and not a machine means that the results are less accurate, giving  realistic hair-like strokes which can mimic the flow of a natural brow. The results of a Microblading treatment are a very natural “fluffy” look which is great for filling in gaps, extending the brow or creating brows where hair has been lost through over plucking or conditions such as Alopecia. Microblading only suits people with very “normal” skin, very dry skin or eczema prone skin can be too delicate for Microblading, very pale translucent skin also causes a problem as the pigment heals a lot cooler and more oily skin will not retain the pigment. Every clients skin retains pigment very differently, the healing process affects the longevity of the treatment, I personally feel microblading is more traumatic to the skin and as a result the skin heals and the strokes fade quicker than digital machine techniques. This however works well for someone who may be nervous about having permanent makeup and is unsure as to whether they will like it. If a client is uncertain I would recommend Microblading over digital as it fads a lot quicker. Microblading also suits very fair skinned, fair haired clients with baby fine hair, who want very natural looking results.

To conclude there isn’t a great deal of difference in the 3 techniques, your skin type and life style will ultimately dictate which treatment will work best for you. Feedback from my clients seems to favour digital because it lasts longer, also there is a distictive grating noise with Microblading, most clients cringe at, which you don’t get with digital.   Which do I prefer doing? I prefer the digital method, the grating noise and physically cutting someones skin isn’t the most pleasant part of my job, whereas the buzzing noise (like and electric toothbrush) and sensation you get with the digital technique is more relaxing.

Is the Treatment Safe?

The equipment used complies with all relevant health and safety requirements.  All needles are disposable, sterile and of the highest quality.  Sterilization and hygiene is of the utmost importance before, during, and after the treatment.
