Permanent Makeup - The Treatment Process

Our team of professionals, led by the esteemed Dr. Emilio Justo, contains within its ranks a number of specialists, so that we can provide superb treatment across multiple disciplines. The permanent makeup procedure is performed by our Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional, Stephanie Morlock. A member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, Stephanie has years of experience in the cosmetic industry and is extremely talented. She takes a conservative approach to permanent makeup, as she believes that permanent makeup should subtly enhance your natural beauty, not overshadow it.

Permanent makeup is typically used to accent the eyes and face; upper and lower eyeliner, and eyebrow coloring are available as permanent makeup. During the procedure, you will likely experience some slight discomfort, typical of that associated with tattoos. Though treatment time varies, typically the process takes no more than an hour or two, given the localized nature of permanent makeup. The results of the procedure are immediate, but as with traditional tattoos, the true color will likely not be evident until the treatment area has fully healed. Do not be alarmed if you feel the outcome appears harsh or conspicuous, as the colors will fade in the week following treatment. As with cosmetic tattoos, the color may fade in the years and decades following your procedure due to sun exposure and a breakdown of pigmentation. If this occurs, follow-up treatment can revive the color.

Permanent Makeup

Stephanie Morlock is a certified permanent cosmetic professional at Arizona Eye Institute. She explains how she performs cosmetic procedures to enhance a patient's facial appearance. After over two decades, she still enjoys her job, her co-workers, and helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals with permanent makeup.

Risks and Benefits

Infection, discomfort, allergic reactions, peeling, and scars are all possible side effects of permanent makeup. Rest assured however, Stephanie is an experienced, knowledgeable, and capable Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional, and will be sure to address any concerns you may have before the treatment begins. These risks can be greatly alleviated or eliminated altogether through the training, education, and experience of your permanent makeup artist, as well as her adherence to strict safety measures. At our centers in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg, we take every measure feasible to ensure that our procedures meet the highest standards for safety.

The benefits of permanent makeup are somewhat self-evident. Having makeup that is permanent allows you to avoid the hassle and time of putting on makeup every day, as well as partake in activities such as swimming, sports, or exercise without worrying whether your makeup will run or ruin. Always looking refreshed and presentable can have a real impact on your self-confidence and improve the way that you carry yourself. Why put on makeup every day when you can have your makeup applied once?
