Many women spend days of their lifetime just putting on makeup every morning. Wouldn’t it be nice to eliminate the time spent and instead get on with your day without cosmetics? Do you experience allergies to most cosmetics on the market today? Do you want defined brows, eyes, and lips all day, every day? If this sounds like you, you may be a good candidate for permanent makeup.

Permanent makeup is a method of tattooing that can be used to enhance specific areas of the face. It is a wonderful option for patients who are committed to maintaining their makeup application results without the daily routine. Patients who have allergies to makeup or who want to look their best at all times will want to ask the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads about permanent makeup.

Will permanent makeup look fake?

Absolutely not! Our doctors are focused on ensuring our tattooed cosmetics are as natural-looking as possible. We provide coloration that can be used on various areas of the face. We work closely with our patients to get the results they desire!

What can I expect during my procedure?

Cosmetic tattooing at our practice may be done with local anesthetic or sedation, depending on the patient’s pain tolerance. Specialized medical equipment and sterile dyes are used during the tattoo process. Within approximately one week, the final results will be seen, as swelling and discomfort will be gone around day seven through 10. Patients may be sent home with antibiotic ointment to use on the treated area to avoid the development of an infection and other side effects that may occur.

Will my health insurance pay for permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic or “elective” procedure that is not medically necessary, so health insurance plans will not cover or reduce the cost of treatment. However, our practice offers financing options to make permanent makeup an attainable treatment for those on a tight or limited budget!
