Permanent Makeup in Houston, TX

Permanent Makeup to Look and Feel Your Best

When permanent makeup first came on the beauty scene in the 80s it was very limited—eyebrows and lips were pretty much the only procedures available. Today your options are much broader. From beautifully sculpted eyebrows to areola restoration for breast cancer survivors, today experienced technicians—like the professionals at Aesthetic Surgery Institute—can work wonders.

What Is Permanent Makeup?

Sometimes called micropigmentation or simply cosmetic tattooing, permanent makeup procedures involve depositing colored pigments into the dermis, the top layer of the skin. The technician applies the color using a traditional tattoo device (like a pen or rotary machine) or a manual hand device.

As the name suggests, it’s permanent, but it does fade over time and will require periodic touchups (color re-enhancement or color refreshing).

Permanent makeup can be used for:

  • Lip, eyebrow, and eyelash enhancement
  • Scar camouflage
  • Creating beauty marks
  • Concealing a thin hairline
  • Areola pigmentation
Reasons to Consider

Benefits of Permanent Makeup

There are many reasons women and men seek out permanent makeup procedures.

It’s a good choice for people who want to shorten their makeup routine or avoid having to reapply makeup throughout the day. People who want to subtly enhance their appearance and avoid traditional makeup altogether can also benefit from permanent makeup.

Permanent makeup is ideal for those who have allergies to traditional makeup. And it’s great for active people, like runners and swimmers, who don’t want to worry about “sweating off” their makeup or having to frequently reapply it.

Those who are visually challenged or who have problems with dexterity, including stroke survivors and those with Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis, can also greatly benefit from permanent makeup.

Risks of Permanent Makeup

As with any procedure, there are some risks with permanent makeup, but they’re very low when the procedure is performed by trained professionals, like the team at Aesthetic Surgery Institute.
Risks of Permanent Makeup Can Include:
  • Infection—There’s a very low risk of hepatitis A infection; this is always caused by poor sterilization of instruments, an easily avoidable problem.
  • Adverse Reactions—Allergic reaction to the pigments used in permanent makeup is possible but rare. Other possible adverse reactions include developing a granuloma or keloid; a granuloma is a mass that forms inside the tissue around a foreign substance (in this case, pigment); a keloid is an overgrowth of scar tissue or a raised scar. The risks of developing these are low.
  • MRI Complications—The iron oxide in permanent tattoo pigments can react with the magnets used in an MRI machine, causing a mild inflammatory reaction. A topical steroid cream like Benadryl can help. Let your MRI tech know if you have permanent makeup.
