SEMI-PERMANENT MAKEUP

What is Semi-permanent makeup?

Semi-permanent makeup is skincare trend that has exploded in popularity in the last few years because of the incredibly realistic results this newer, more sophisticated form of makeup “tattooing” can produce. While semi-permanent makeup can encompass a wide variety of areas, at Flash Lab we focus on lip tint, eyeliner and eyebrows (which you can read more in depth about on our microblading page.)

Who is a good candidate for semi-permanent makeup?

Anyone who struggles with evenly applying eyeliner or hates the feel and look or a dry, faded lip at the end of the day will love this built in solution! Semi-permanent makeup saves time and money as it can last up to two years. This is also a great treatment for clients who lack color and form in their lips but don’t want dermal fillers.

What can I expect during my semi-permanent makeup session?

Your time in our office will be about 2 1/2 hours. Your session will begin with an in-depth consultation where you will discuss the shape and color of the makeup to be applied. You can bring photos as a reference if there is a particular style you are looking to achieve. Once you’ve determined the look you want, a numbing cream will be applied to alleviate any discomfort and your artist will apply a temporary outline to be sure you are happy with the final result. Micropigments will then be deposited into the skin with an ultra fine needle. Your lips will be quite colorful on the day of your treatment but will gradually soften into a natural, well defined hue as they heal.

What can I expect after my session?

There is very little downtime with these treatment areas. Some swelling, bruising, minor scabbing and itchiness may occur. We recommend applying additional makeup over the applications and avoid scratching or picking at any rough patches. If you are someone who wears contacts, you may have to switch to glasses for up to four days after an eyeliner treatment.

Who will be performing my semi-permanent makeup application?

Flash Lab only employs highly experienced and certified estheticians to perform our services. When it comes to semi-permanent makeup, choosing a skilled artist with a proven track record of reliable results is of the utmost importance. We encourage our clients to look at the impressive portfolio of our microblading and semi-permanent makeup expert Estefania de Araujo.
