The Elements offers several different types of permanent makeup, also known as micro-pigmentation or cosmetic tattooing. Natural pigments are implanted beneath the top layer of skin, into the dermal layer (second layer of skin), by micro insertion. This medically-developed technique is specifically designed for a safe application. The pigments used are specially formulated for cosmetic application and are not the same as those used in traditional tattooing. Permanent makeup can be an easy way to escape the daily hassle of applying traditional cosmetics, and best of all, it never runs or smears.
Why Permanent Makeup?
Did you know that the average woman can spend up to $15,000 for makeup over her lifetime? She may also spend an average of 30 minutes per day getting ready in the morning. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend that time and money on something a little more fun? You can if you have one of our professional estheticians add permanent makeup to your next appointment. For a minimal investment, you could save thousands in future purchases and even give yourself more time to sleep in each day. Permanent makeup may also great for people with:
- Allergies to traditional makeup
- Poor eyesight
- Shaky or unsteady hands
- Not enough time (such as moms or professionals)
- High-profile positions
What can you expect?
Each permanent makeup treatment is different, but the time involved will generally range between one to three hours. A topical anesthetic will be applied to reduce sensitivity and minimize your discomfort. Our licensed, professional estheticians will take the utmost care to provide a relaxing experience that meets your highest expectations.
Available Treatment Areas
Eyebrow ($350 members / $400 non-members)
Before you begin your treatment, one of our professional estheticians will work with you to determine the shape and color of your new eyebrows. It may potentially be the perfect choice for anyone with asymmetrical or thinning brows.
Upper or Lower Lid Eyeliner ($200 members / $250 non-members)
Once you have determined which design and color will be used, topical anesthetics will be applied to numb your eyelids during the treatment. If you normally wear contacts, plan to use glasses for up to 48 hours after your procedure.
Lip Liner ($250 members / $300 non-members)
Permanent lip liner can help correct uneven lips, provide more definition, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Prior to your procedure, you may meet with one of our professional estheticians to determine which shape and color will best suit your style.
Full Lips ($400 members / $450 non-members)
Permanent makeup can potentially create fuller looking lips, correct asymmetry, and improve darkening of lips from smoking. If you’re tired of reapplying your lipstick several times a day, this may be the perfect choice for you!
Often referred to as cosmetic tattooing, permanent makeup uses implantation techniques to add colored pigmentation into the top layer of your skin.
Most clients will experience some discomfort, but this will vary based on the area(s) being treated. A topical anesthetic applied before, during and after the treatment will help keep your pain to a minimum. Most swelling and pain subsides in 24 to 48 hours.
Our estheticians are professionally trained and licensed. We also abide by all safety protocols set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Depending on the area being treated, most procedures take between one and three hours.
Permanent makeup may begin to fade over time, so we recommend scheduling periodic “color refreshing” treatments. It is similar to the same upkeep that a body tattoo would require.
Your permanent makeup may appear darker immediately following the procedure, so be sure you give it a few days to settle in before you decide to change anything. We may be able to adjust the tint color or the shape slightly, but for the most part we suggest taking the time to meet with one of our professional estheticians to see if this is the right choice for you.
When you consider how much money you will be saving on cosmetics, we think that you find the prices to be quite reasonable. Depending on the area(s) being treated, permanent makeup applications can run anywhere from $200 (eyeliner) to $400 (full lips) for members, and $250 (eyeliner) to $450 (full lips) for non-members.
