Permanent Cosmetic Procedures Are Popular...
Permanent Makeup continues to gain popularity. Permanent Makeup today is not what it used to be. With advanced devices and education available, permanent makeup is reaching new standards and with local laws set forth by the Health Department, both permanent makeup and the tattooing industry has more rules to follow. "That's definitely a good thing," says Jill. Permanent Makeup involves needles and shouldn't be done on a whim at just any place by just anyone. Do your research and look for a qualified, well educated, health permitted artist to perform these procedures that's considered "permanent" but will fade with time. After all, it's your face.
At Timeless Skin Spa, we believe it's important for you to meet your artist. Jill offer's a complimentary consultation to discuss design, color, pricing and other questions you may have. If you live far and would like to consult over the phone we do accept photos via email prior your consultation.
What is Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent Cosmetics is the sophisticated process of inserting pigment permanently into the skin. Procedures include the eyebrows, eyeliner and lip areas. This ancient practice combined with today's methods of application safely enhances your natural beauty.
Who Benefits from Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent cosmetics benefit many people. Some women are too busy to apply makeup and want to look their best all day or they may find it physically difficult to apply makeup (due to poor eyesight, impaired motor skills, or unsteady hands). Active and athletic people, as well as those with oily skin or little defining facial hair also benefit from the smudge-free and lasting effects of permanent cosmetics.
What to Expect
During a consultation with Jill, your medical history, design and color goals are addressed. Your permanent cosmetic procedure is a safe process conducted by a well-trained technician that follows the strictest OSHA sanitation and sterilization guidelines.
Permanent cosmetics is applied by various methods, we incorporate the use of a state of the art machine with a one time use cartridge system and a hand tool method allowing us the most customized outcome.
Immediately following your procedure your color will appear darker. In the following 1-3 weeks your skin will exfoliate about 20-30% of the color, (sometimes more depending on your skin type).You must follow the after care directions so that your permanent cosmetic design can properly heal. At approximately one month after your procedure you will have a touch up visit. Color and design adjustments can be made at this time. This touch up visit is very important and required before it can be determined that your procedure is complete.
Does it Hurt?I often get asked this during the permanent makeup consultation. Of course the answer is relevant to your pain tolerance and your communication ability. Here's how it works: A topical numbing made for especially for our industry is used prior the procedure.
After a light pass of tattooing and the skin is "broken" or "open", a secondary anesthetic is applied and can be continuously applied during the procedure if needed. So you should be fairly comfortable and should feel mostly pressure during the procedure. At times you may feel a pinch or two but that's when communication on your part comes on. As I'm working, I check in with you to see how your doing. If you need more anesthetic I apply more. In our experience clients report that any discomfort is minimal. In the end, communication is the best way to stay ahead of the pain.
How "Permanent" is Permanent Cosmetics?
Permanent Cosmetics is applied with the intention of permanency. Factors including sun exposure, medications, skin care products, and the skins ability to hold color will affect the color of your design. Some fading may occur and clients may choose to return for a color touch up within 2-5years. Generally speaking, the lighter the color the quicker it fades. However, that certainly isn't a reason to have a really dark, stenciled look applied to your brows! A "natural look" approach is best.

Pricing may vary and can be discussed during your complimentary consultation.
Eyebrows~Eyebrows frame your face and are a very important feature of one's appearance. The brows should be as symmetrical as possible, be soft in color and compliment your face. The design can sometimes take longer than the procedure. Define your eyebrows with a few hairline strokes or a full color application. Hairline stroke effects along with shading techniques create natural looking eyebrows for those with little, light, or no hair. A great solution for alopedic conditions. See options below.
~Powder Fill: Solid, filled in eyebrows in either a soft or darker color.
~Powder Fill with Hairline Strokes: A lighter base with darker hairline strokes over it.
~Hairline Strokes aka Feather Stroke: Either a light or dark color simulating hair, no base color.
~Other options are combining the above.
Eyeliner ~Perfect for those who are accustomed to wearing a daily liner; a liner will show more than a 'Tight Line' which is directly in the lashes. Eyes may be done with subtle color and design or with a more defined look. See Options below:
Upper Tight Line~ A subtle, natural, 'no-makeup' look that defines the upper base of the eyelashes. Implantation of pigment is directly in the lash line. A perfect solution for those with light and medium-dark colored eyelashes.
Lower Tight Line~ A subtle, natural, 'no-makeup' look that defines the lower base of the eyelashes. Implantation of pigment is directly in the lash line.
Upper Eyeliner~ A more defined line directly placed along the top and directly the lash line.
Lower Eyeliner~ Applied amongst the lower lashes, may be in a lighter color than the upper eyeliner for a naturally defined eye.
LipLiner ~Defines the vermilion border only taking into consideration your natural lip color.
LipLine+ ~ An extension of your natural lip line, focusing on both the vermilion border where a lip liner is applied and the areas lacking natural lip color. This procedure balances uneven shaped lips and restores your natural lip color resulting in an overall improved shape, color, and design.
Full Lip~ Although a full lip is not always necessary, if you've lost most of your lip color and more fill is needed than a LipLine+, then this procedure will benefit you.
Nipple Areola Repigmentation~ After breast reconstruction it is possible to re-create a nipple-areola complex. A good candidate is anyone who is completely healed from their last surgery, including nipple reconstruction work. You must be given a release from your plastic surgeon and be in good emotional health. Careful placement, size, shape and color choice will provide for a realistic looking nipple and areola. Price can vary depending on the amount of work. We will assist you for possible reimbursement from your insurance company, as the areola tattooing is considered the last step of your reconstruction. Jill currently is referred to by prominent Bay Area Plastic Surgeons. She is passionate about areola tattooing and is involved with colleagues in establishing areola tattoo awareness and setting forth industry standards.
