Permanent makeup (PMU), traditionally known as micro-pigmentation or permanent cosmetic tattooing, is the implantation of pigment in the second top layer of the skin using specially made fine micro-needles to create beautiful eyebrow, eyeliner, and lip enhancements. The PMU options we offer here at JN PMU are: Microblading, Microblading & Shading Combo, Ombre Powder Shading, Eyeliner Lash Line, Lip Blush, and PMU Angel Removal.
Permanent makeup can be a good option for the vision challenged who have difficulty applying their cosmetics and others with dexterity related conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke survivors, and busy people who don’t have time to spend applying and refreshing makeup throughout the day and evening. Interest in this service spans the young to the more mature; those who desire a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance. It is especially valuable to people who can’t wear traditional makeup due to allergies and skin sensitivities; active people who want to look their best for sports activities, and those who don’t want to worry about “sweating off” or reapplying makeup.
PMU results can last anywhere from 1 to 5 years depending on chosen style/saturation, aftercare, personal lifestyle, and individual skin type. An important tip is to always apply sunscreen to the area once it is completely healed if you are going to be outdoors as exposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause fading and discoloration of pigment. Touch-ups are highly recommended about every 1-2 years to maintain shape and color to keep your PMU looking fresh!
All PMU procedures require a two-step process consisting of an initial session followed by a 6-10 week touch-up session to complete the final look. Our PMU procedure process (2-3 hours) includes a thorough consultation with customized shaping using the golden Phi ratio of balanced proportions to map out each client's unique facial features. Pre-draw and color selection must be agreed upon before the cosmetic tattoo process begins. Topical numbing is continuously applied throughout the entire process to ensure maximum comfort. Clients will be sent home with a complimentary aftercare kit along with detailed aftercare instructions to follow. Failure to follow these instructions will result in loss of pigment and poor healed results. For pre-care and after-care info, please click here.
