Applying makeup daily can be time-consuming and exhausting. If you are looking for a quicker, more convenient way to enhance the appearance of your eyes or lips, we have the answer for you. Permanent makeup is applied by using small needles or a microblade to deposit color pigments into the skin. Essential Aesthetics and Laser in Charlotte, NC is pleased to provide microblading, powder brows, lip blushing, and eyeliner. With any of these cosmetic procedures, results are expected to last 1 – 3 years, and touch-up appointments can be made every two years for any color that fades. Schedule a consultation with licensed aesthetician Lori Alessandrini today.

Powder brows, eyeliner, and lip blushing use tiny needles that penetrate your skin to place pigments resembling makeup. On the other hand, microblading is specifically used to create fuller, defined eyebrows by working with a tiny blade to apply pigment to the skin. To start out, a numbing cream will be applied to either the brow, eyelid, or lip area, depending on which treatment you get. You should not experience much discomfort, but you may feel slight pressure while the pigment is being applied. Each process can take up to 1 – 3 hours to complete. It is normal to experience some swelling, flaking, or redness afterward while the area heals.

Kristian is simply amazing! Powder brow perfection. She is patient and explains everything clearly. Don’t wait any longer…call her today!!

The staff is awesome and very kind. They always have your best interest at heart. Gracie is very good at what she does and talks to you so you understand the procedure and does not use all the technical verbiage that sounds good but you have not idea what it means. Lori has built a strong foundation and she treats her employees well. Her employees seem to really love their job and I in turn love that they do to my face.

Does getting permanent makeup hurt?

While some people may find the application of permanent makeup uncomfortable, most don't find it painful. Before we begin, a numbing cream can be applied to the area to keep you comfortable during your procedure. After the procedure is finished, some mild redness, swelling, and/or tenderness is common, but it typically goes away quickly. We will give you aftercare instructions to help speed healing and ensure optimal results.

Is permanent makeup actually permanent?

While permanent makeup can have long-lasting results, it is technically a semi-permanent procedure. After about 1 – 3 years, some of the color may fade, at which time you can always schedule a touch-up procedure at Essential Aesthetics and Laser to refresh your results.

How long is recovery after a permanent makeup application?

During the first 2 – 3 days after having permanent makeup applied there is typically some slight puffiness, redness, tenderness, or swelling. However, this shouldn't keep you from returning to your normal routine immediately. You will be instructed to keep a healing ointment on it for the remainder of your recovery time which is typically about 7 – 10 days.
