What is Permanent Makeup?
This is the process whereby color pigments are inserted into the dermal layer of the skin to create a soft and natural look. These colored pigments are specifically designed and formulated for permanent makeup and designed to be customized for each individual. Permanent Makeup creates a lasting cosmetic effect. This is also known as Cosmetic Tattooing.
