Permanent cosmetics or permanent makeup or micropigmentation, is the process of implanting cosmetic pigments into the dermis layer of the skin to improve one’s appearance and save time compared to traditional makeup. The most common areas where permanent makeup is performed are on eyebrows, eye lines and lip lines.

"Kathryn did my eye brows and my mothers. We both have red hair so our brows were pretty light, now they are visible and sharpe. I would definitely recommend Derma Clinic.
"Kat is a face artist! I took my mom to have her eyebrows redone as I knew she would be able to fix them. She is so happy with her new brows. I had her do mine as well and they are perfect. She is the expert!
"Kat is so precise, professional and just as invested in my brows as I am! I felt totally at ease and knew she’d do her absolute best to do a great job and she did. Don’t wait, go see Kat!
"Literally just walked out of the clinic and I absolutely LOVE my new brows! Kat was very professional, knowledgeable and SO talented! Highly recommend her services for permanent makeup!
I am so beyond happy with my new eyebrows that Kathryn did. She was very professional and detail orientated and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend her! Thanks again Kathryn!
I was thinking about having my brows done for a while, but was a bit nervous about it. Kat did an amazing job! I am so happy with my new brows! If you are thinking about it, she's your girl. Highly recommend!

The duration of permanent or semi-permanent makeup depends on the depth of needle penetration during the procedure. Skin type and after-care are determining factors in achieving lasting results. Clients need to follow all instructions carefully so that their makeup color can last several years. Touch-ups are recommended every few years as necessary.
How safe is it?
The art of tattooing and permanent makeup have been practiced for centuries. All the pigments that we sell are cosmetic grade, meaning that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. Also, the ingredients are approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Be wary of counterfeit products which have not met safety standards. It is the technician’s responsibility to ensure proper sanitation and prevent possible infection. Clients should advise their service provider if they plan to undergo laser treatment, Botox, dermabrasion, peels, etc.
Is there pain or swelling?
Some clients may experience some swelling depending on their skin’s sensitivity. However, most applications look great immediately after the procedure! We have a state-of-the-art anti-pain protocol in which we use a highly effective analgesic ointment. We also offer BioGel, After Care, eye drops and other anti-inflammatory products.
Does it fade?
Some fading will occur, which is normal. Technicians should deposit pigment deep enough to prevent color from scabbing, but diligent after-care will also lock in color. Makeup applied by technicians who strive to perfect their skills will result in better color retention and fewer touch-ups. However, periodic touch-ups are good for a technician’s business!
What can I expect following the procedure for recovery and healing?
Clients will have only temporary restrictions. Right after the procedure, clients must avoid steamy areas, such as spas or hot tubs, as well as contact with chlorine. They must not rub, pick, or apply additional cosmetics to the treated area until it is completely healed. The normal recovery time is 5 to 10 days.
