What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing that allows Atlanta, GA patients at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery the opportunity to have that fresh, new-makeup look all the time. Applying pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, permanent makeup is both an art and science. Furthermore, if you have sensitive skin or an allergy to makeup, permanent makeup can help overcome negative side effects that come along with your makeup use. If you lead an active lifestyle or have a long morning makeup routine, permanent makeup can save you the time of applying and reapplying makeup. If you have vision issues or difficulty applying makeup due to a medical issue, permanent makeup can help you as well. Permanent makeup options include:
- Full lip color: helps your lips to be full of color
- Permanent eyeliner: enhances the look of your eyes
- Permanent lip liner: helps your lips appear more defined, restores color to lips that are pale, eliminates the daily use of pencils to outline, and fill in or reshape lip borders
- Permanent eyebrows: helps your eyebrows to appear full

How Does Getting Permanent Makeup Work?
Before your outpatient surgery, a topical cream will be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure. You and plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang will go over your desires and create a customized treatment plan to fit your style. Once you choose the colors of the makeup you'd like to receive, the chosen color will be applied to ensure you have picked the right color and know what your final results will look like. From there, eyebrows will be drawn on and/or lips filled in or outlined. Once the correct shape, symmetry, and style are determined, you will lie back in one of our comfortable treatment chairs, and we will perform the procedure, which can take up to an hour. You can expect to feel some tenderness after the procedure, but it shouldn't last more than 45 minutes or so. It's important to avoid strenuous activity or anything that will cause sweating, like exercise or hot yoga, a few days before and after your procedure. The sweat can cause the scabbing to come off, as well as "sweat" out the color that was tattooed. Following your procedure, it's important to keep your skin clean by splashing water on your face, using a mild cleanser, then splashing your face clean. It's vitally important that you do not use washcloths or other abrasive scrubs until a time suggested by Dr. Mang or his skilled staff. You should start seeing optimal results after 7 – 10 days. Your results should last one or more years!
What to Expect After Permanent Makeup
Your skin may appear red and swollen immediately after cosmetic tattooing, but this usually resolves within a short period. It's important to follow any guidelines provided by Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery to prevent complications and ensure the best possible results. For example, we recommend avoiding sun exposure until your skin has completely healed. You should also avoid using any products that contain harsh chemicals or fragrances. The great news is that our patients are very satisfied with their results and enjoy the convenience of having low-maintenance makeup that looks natural and lasts for years!
Permanent Makeup FAQ
Is it painful to get permanent makeup?
The level of discomfort during a permanent makeup procedure may vary from person to person, but most patients do not consider it painful. Dr. Mang and his skilled team will use a topical anesthetic to help minimize discomfort during the cosmetic tattooing procedure. If you are especially sensitive to pain, please let us know.
How should I care for my permanent makeup?
After your permanent makeup procedure, the Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery team will provide specific aftercare instructions. In the days following the application of permanent makeup, you should apply a healing ointment to the treated area, avoid touching or picking at the scabs that form, and only take short showers. You should also avoid prolonged exposure to the sun for a few weeks after the procedure.
How long does permanent makeup last?
Permanent makeup typically lasts up to five years for most of our Atlanta, GA-area patients, but the exact duration may vary depending on your skin type, the color and style of pigment used, and the location of the tattoo. Touch-up sessions may be needed on occasion to maintain the color and shape of the permanent makeup.
