Kelowna Permanent Makeup: Put Your Best Face Forward

We’ve all had those mornings when you sleep in and find yourself rushing to get ready, wishing that you didn’t have to worry about your makeup every day. Permanent makeup is an ideal cosmetic solution for women who are looking to enhance their natural features, without any of the additional hassle. At Peterson MD, a Kelowna-based plastic surgery clinic, we offer a wide range of permanent makeup services. Today’s blog will outline what permanent makeup entails and the three major procedures - permanent eyeliner, permanent eyebrows and permanent lip make up - which can add enormous benefit to your life.

What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is done through a process called micropigmentation. A tattoo pen injects permanent ink into your skin, giving the appearance of freshly applied makeup. The procedures can take up to 120 minutes and your plastic surgeon will most likely use a local anesthetic to numb the area and make the procedure more comfortable for you. It is important for patients to note that, while the makeup cannot be washed off, permanent cosmetics do fade and require periodic touch-ups.

Permanent Makeup Procedure #1 - Permanent Eyeliner

This form of permanent makeup can be applied in a variety of ways to enhance the look of your eyes in terms of their shape and balance. Depending on your preference and unique eye shape, there are different styles of permanent eyeliner which can be as dramatic or subtle as you want. Some benefits of permanent eyeliner include:

  • Gives the illusion of larger eyes
  • Makes eyelashes look darker, fuller and thicker
  • Whatever activity you are engaging in, be it sports or taking a shower, you never have to worry about permanent eyeliner smudging.
  • It is an extremely convenient and safe option for patients who have low-vision problems or unsteady hands. It is also ideal for contact lens wearers, who may find themselves experiencing watery eyes.
Permanent Makeup Procedure # 2 - Permanent Eyebrows

Groomed, well-balanced and impeccably designed eyebrows can give your face and eyes an instant lift, resulting in a more youthful and beautiful appearance. Concerns such as naturally sparse or light-colored eyebrows can be solved by adding definition and fullness while still maintaining a natural look. Permanent eyebrow makeup has a wide range of advantages, including:

  • Provides an efficient solution to people who have lost their eyebrow hair due to aggressive tweezing, chemotherapy and alopecia, among many other causes
  • Time-saving as you never have to worry about applying brow makeup again
  • Permanent eyebrow makeup can add fullness and thickness to people with sparse or lightly-colored eyebrows
  • As with permanent eyeliner, you never have to worry about your eyebrows being wiped off or smudging
  • The biggest advantage is that it allows you to create the perfect eyebrow shape, color, symmetry and balance for your face, giving you a more youthful and beautiful appearance.
Permanent Makeup Procedure #3 - Permanent Lip Makeup

Permanent lip makeup has the effect of creating a fuller, more defined lip-shape. It comes in a variety of shades so you can pick a color that matches your favorite lipstick, or opt for a more natural look. If you choose the latter, lipstick color can still be applied on top of your lip tattoo. When a bolder, more vivid color is chosen, all that is needed is a simple enhancement by a subtle lip gloss. Some of the advantages of permanent lip makeup are:

  • It enhances the shape, color and youthfulness of your lips
  • For patients with lip ‘wrinkles’ and ‘creases’, permanent lip makeup ensures that you never have to worry about your lipstick bleeding or running into the pesky cracks ever again
  • Eliminates the worry of constantly having to reapply your lipstick
  • By defining your lips borders, permanent lip makeup eliminates the problem of ‘lip-bleeding’ entirely.
  • For those patients who have experienced scarring from medical conditions such as congenital cleft-lip surgical repair, this procedure will prove to be very successful in restoring lip-border shape.

Permanent makeup can be very beneficial to the lives of all women and a great enhancement to their physical appearance. Not only does it save you time, but you also have the peace of mind knowing that your makeup is perfect, no matter what the occasion.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
