Types of Permanent Makeup
Love Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics offers an array of permanent makeup options to suit your individual needs and preferences. Each procedure is tailored to your unique facial features, skin type, and desired results.
- Microblading. One of the most popular types of permanent makeup, microblading is a technique for improving the appearance of your eyebrows. Microblading uses a fine blade to create natural-looking hair-like strokes on the skin, resulting in fuller, more defined eyebrows. This procedure is ideal for individuals with thin, sparse, or uneven eyebrows, as well as those who want to achieve a more polished look.
- Eyeliner. Permanent eyeliner can enhance the eyes and make them appear more awake and youthful. Permanent eyeliner can be applied in a variety of styles and thicknesses, ranging from a natural-looking enhancement to more dramatic and bold. This procedure is ideal for individuals who want to save time on their daily makeup routine. It is also a great option for individuals who have difficulty applying eyeliner due to vision or motor skill issues.
- Lip liner and color. Lip color, also known as lip blushing, and lip liner are other popular types of permanent makeup. This procedure uses pigments to add definition and color to the lips, resulting in a natural-looking and long-lasting lip color. Lip blushing is ideal for individuals who want to improve the shape or color of their lips, as well as those who want to correct asymmetry or add volume.
- Freckle tattoos. A unique type of permanent makeup, freckle tattoos can add a touch of whimsy and personality to your appearance. This procedure uses pigments to create realistic-looking freckles on the skin, creating a youthful and playful effect. Freckle tattoos are ideal for individuals who want to add a bit of character to their appearance or who have naturally occurring freckles they wish to enhance.
Dr. Love and his team will work closely with you to determine which type of permanent makeup is right for you. At Love Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, our goal is to help you achieve a natural look that complements your unique facial features and help you feel more confident and beautiful.
The Permanent Makeup Procedure
Before your permanent makeup procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Love to discuss your goals and concerns. You’ll review the different types of permanent makeup available, and determine which option is right for you. After discussing the color and shape you want, Dr. Love will make recommendations based on your skin tone, facial features, and personal preferences. He will also give you instructions on how to prepare for your permanent makeup procedure, including avoiding certain medications, alcohol, caffeine, and sun exposure.
On the day of your procedure, a topical numbing cream is first applied to the area being treated to minimize discomfort. Next, a fine needle is used to carefully place pigments into the skin, creating the desired shape and color. The length of the procedure depends on the area being treated and the complexity, but most procedures take between one and three hours.
Following your permanent makeup procedure, Dr. Love will give you detailed aftercare instructions, including cleaning and moisturizing the treated area. You may experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness for the first few days, but this is normal and should subside within a week or two. After the initial healing period, you’ll return for a follow-up appointment to ensure that the area has healed properly and to make any necessary touch-ups.

How long does permanent makeup last?
Permanent makeup can last from one to five years, depending on the individual’s skin type, lifestyle, and the type of procedure performed. Touch-ups are recommended to maintain the desired results.
Does it hurt to get permanent makeup?
While everyone’s pain tolerance is different, most patients describe the sensation of permanent makeup as uncomfortable rather than painful. A topical numbing cream can be used to minimize discomfort, though any discomfort following the procedure typically subsides within a week or two.
