Important Information

Prior to all procedures:
  • A consultation is NOT needed prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure appointment. On the day of your appointment, before the actual procedure, you will have a full consultation. This will include a brief medical history review; procedure options; pigment choices; design styles; overall expectations, and after care instructions. Appropriate time is taken to individualize each permanent cosmetic procedure.
    Think about the look that you wish to achieve. As a specialist, your permanent cosmetic artist will ensure that the right color and styles are chosen for you, however you are very much a part of the decision making process.
  • Please make sure you schedule enough time to complete a proper permanent cosmetic procedure. You should plan on 2- 2 1⁄2 hours in the office. This time includes consultation, proper numbing, the permanent cosmetic procedure, and after care instructions. None of these activities should be rushed. For follow-up appointments you should schedule 1-1 1/2 hours in the office.
    Swelling, dry skin, itching and tenderness are common after the permanent cosmetic procedure. These symptoms will dissipate more each day and vary on an individual basis.
  • Color can fade/soften as much as 50% or more. Your, follow up permanent cosmetic appointment will enhance any area that has faded too much; healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 2-3 years to maintain the procedure’s fresh, natural appearance. If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, use retinol products, get regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently you will probably need a color boost every year. The better you take care of the permanent cosmetic area, the longer it will last.
  • If you have oily skin, your results WILL appear softer (eyebrows can look solid) in appearance and may require additional procedures.
    On a case by case basis we do limited permanent cosmetic corrections on work originally done by other technicians. We will work over still visible pigments. Corrections are complicated. If you have previously had permanent cosmetics done by another technician and fail to tell us, we reserve the right to refuse service and you will forfeit your deposit.
  • Remember, no one has two sides of the face that are the same. Enhancing your features is the goal. Note that nothing is PERFECT. We do not use the “P” word when doing permanent cosmetics.
  • If you are pregnant or breast feeding you are NOT candidates for permanent cosmetics.
    Darker skinned clients, clients with melasma or a history of hyper-pigmentation may NOT be candidates for permanent cosmetics. When making an appointment please disclose any hyper-pigmentation/healing issues.
  • It is critical that you are NOT taking or have not taken Accutane within the last 6 months before a permanent cosmetic procedure.
    BOTOX should be performed AFTER your permanent cosmetic procedure and follow up are completed.
  • Injectable FILLERS may be done 6 weeks or more prior to your scheduled permanent cosmetic procedure. However, to avoid complications it is best to do fillers 6 weeks after your permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • Do not have any laser or light-based treatments one week prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure. Do not have any laser treatments until your permanent cosmetic procedure healing is complete.
  • Do not have professional microdermabrasion or acid “peels” for one week prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • Do not have any facial waxing for one week prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • Absolutely NO sun or tanning prior to the permanent cosmetic procedure or for one week after the procedure. Prior to your procedure do not have a sun burn on your face as that is a sign of inflammation in the skin. In addition, the skin will exfoliate after healing from a sun burn and takes the permanent cosmetic pigment color with it as it fades. If you have a sun burn at the time of your procedure appointment you will be required to reschedule and your deposit will be forfeited.
  • It is recommended to stop using topical or oral steroids (creams or pills), and Retin A/Retinoid (topical or oral) 5 days prior to any permanent cosmetic procedure. You must discontinue all retinoid products for one month after a procedure. Using retinoid products before one month after the procedure can cause the pigments to fade prematurely. Consult with your doctor before discontinuing any topical or oral steroid.
  • Do not use any aggressive skin-care products such as glycolic or salicylic acids and abrasive scrubs for 3 days prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure appointment.
  • Herbal remedies” and “herbal supplements” such as fish oils are to be avoided for 3 days pre-procedure.
    Do NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary for 48-72 hours prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure. Tylenol is fine.
  • It is recommended that you avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours pre-procedure. Alcohol thins the blood and caffeine might make it difficult to relax during treatment. In addition, avoiding these will minimize any swelling after the permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • No swimming until the permanent cosmetic area is completely healed. Salt water/chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change in color. Even after healing, it is recommended that you apply Vaseline to the treated area/s prior to swimming to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from fading the area. Please schedule accordingly.
  • You should avoid sweating for one week after your permanent cosmetic procedure, which means avoid all exercise. Sweat is salty and can prematurely fade the treated area!
  • You should wash your hair the morning of your permanent cosmetic procedure, since it is recommended to keep your face dry/out of the water for at least 5 days after your permanent cosmetic procedure. No water, no makeup, no lotions, no pencil etc. absolutely NOTHING should be put on the treated area for 7 days. After 10 days, use a gentle cleanser to clean the area. Avoid scrubbing the treated area for 4 weeks.
  • For most people, permanent cosmetics are well tolerated procedures. Topical anesthetic (numbing cream) is used before every procedure. If you feel that you will require “relaxing” medication for extra comfort, discuss this with your doctor and obtain a prescription for medication prior to procedure. Let the permanent cosmetics professional know of any and all medications the day of the procedure.
  • You may drive to and from your appointment. If you require oral “relaxing” medications, please arrange for someone to drive you home.
    Getting a permanent cosmetic procedure while menstruating can make you extra sensitive to the procedure. Schedule accordingly.
  • Slight swelling is normal for all permanent cosmetic procedures. Due to thin skin eyeliner and lip color procedures tend to have the most swelling. It is advisable to have ice packs ready at home. Ice gel packs can be provided for a small fee. Clients often have two bags of frozen peas at home for use as ice packs.
  • Wellbeing is important. Drink plenty of water the week before your permanent cosmetic treatment for proper hydration. The day of your procedure, eat a light meal at least two hours before your permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • You should plan to schedule your touch-up within the 4-6 weeks of your initial permanent cosmetic procedure and no longer than 2 months after the initial procedure.
  • If you need to make an adjustment to your appointment please give at least 72 hours’ notice.
    You should ask questions and feel free to contact the office if you need any additional information.
Additional Information

Eyebrows:

  • Come to your appointment with your eyebrows penciled the way you like them (optional), and bring your eyebrow pencil.
    If you get your eyebrows tinted, please have this done at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled procedure. It is recommended to wait at least two weeks to have them tinted after the procedure.
  • Your eyebrows WILL appear bolder immediately after the procedure. This is common in all permanent cosmetic applications. It will begin to soften after a few days. Hair strokes appear crisp and bold at first, but will soften as the tissue heals.
  • Clients with darker skin (Indian, African American, Filipino, etc.), please know that due to your skin color that is naturally darker pigment, the Hair Stroke Eyebrows and Eye Liners will NOT appear as defined or as dark as on lighter skin types.

Eyeliner:

  • In order to determine if you are a good candidate for an eyeliner procedure, it is your responsibility to inform your technician of any eye surgeries you have had or eye conditions you currently have. If you have had any eye surgery, i.e.; Lasik, Cornea surgery, Upper or Lower Blepharoplasty, Lens repair, etc. you will need to wait at least 6 months before getting permanent eyeliner. A doctor’s note may be requested. If you have tear duct plugs, you are not a candidate for an eyeliner procedure. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  • You must discontinue use of any eyelash growth serum (Latisse, Revitalash, etc.) 2 weeks prior to a permanent cosmetic procedure and you cannot use it again until three weeks after a procedure.
  • Absolutely no mascara for 5 days after the eyeliner procedure. To reduce the risk of infection, you must buy and use a new tube of mascara after the permanent cosmetic procedure. If you prefer to create a more dramatic look occasionally you must also buy new eyeliner to be used on the third week after the eyeliner procedure area has healed.

Lips:

  • If you have a history of “cold sores” or peri-oral HSV, you must take prescribed medication (such as Valtrex) two days prior to your permanent cosmetic LIP procedure and three days after to minimize the possibility of an outbreak following your lip procedure. No exceptions! Ask your doctor for the medicine.
  • Smoking will increase your risks of poor color retention for lip procedures. It is imperative that you refrain from smoking one week prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure and one month after the procedure.
  • After the permanent cosmetic procedure you should be careful as you pull shirts or other garments over your face so you don’t hit/brush the lips.
  • Lip procedure clients should avoid salty foods, hot beverages, and drink through a straw when possible for the first week after a permanent cosmetic procedure. Avoid biting and licking your lips.
  • Lips can take 1-3 treatments for desired depth of color. Keeping lips moist daily will lengthen the time the pigment will last. Remember everyone heals differently.

Areola/Nipple Re-pigmentation:

  • Clients must be off Chemotherapy/Radiation treatment for at least 4 to 6 months. Permanent cosmetic procedure appointments should be at least 6 months after the surgery. No exceptions. A surgical report may be requested.

Your Procedure Day:

  • Eat a light meal before your permanent cosmetic appointment. Do not eat a heavy meal.
    Your permanent cosmetic procedures will be performed at the Pink Sands Spa (829 Third Ave) or in the doctor’s office.
  • Do NOT wear eye make-up/mascara or lip color to the office (exception is for eyebrow pencil). Removing your make-up prior to your permanent cosmetic procedure causes excess inflammation to the procedure area. Although most patients don’t, you may re-apply your make-up after your treatment to areas other than the procedure area. Do not wear heavy make-up to the office.
  • If you are having an eyeliner procedure, do NOT wear contact lenses to your appointment. Wear your eyeglasses. Clean contacts can be worn 48 hours after the procedure. You should not use Saline to wet the eyes. You should only use Sterile Water. Check that the wash is NOT SALINE, because it will fade the eyeliner out instantly.
  • If you were prescribed oral “relaxing” medication, take it upon arrival at the office, to allow time for it to take effect.
  • Your permanent cosmetic procedure will be performed with topical anesthesia. The topical anesthetic will be applied and allowed to work for 20 minutes.
  • Your procedure will last 1 hour although the allocated time for your appointment will be at least 2 hours.
  • Before you go home make sure to review your written post treatment instructions. Please ask any questions that you may have.
  • It is best to schedule your touch up procedure 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure.
  • After your treatment you will experience some slight redness and/or mild swelling. Apply a cold pack to the treatment area for ten minutes at a time for several hours after treatment. This is most important in the first hour after your procedure.
  • Most clients can return to work the same day, depending on your comfort level.

Post Instructions for Permanent Cosmetics:

  • You will leave the office with a general healing schedule and permanent cosmetic after care information.
  • Some clients benefit from Benadryl and Ibuprofen for the first 24-48 hours after a permanent cosmetic procedure. It is acceptable to use these over-the-counter medications.
  • Active tanning must be discontinued; both sun tanning and tanning booths must be avoided for one week after your permanent cosmetic procedure. Limit sun exposure as much as possible for several weeks afterward. Wear a hat, and use sunscreen!
  • Do not wet the permanent cosmetic procedure area. You may wash your face with a soft cloth and gentle cleanser, such as Cetaphil, around the procedure area.
  • Try to avoid sweating for several days after treatment, as the salt in your sweat may fade the pigment prematurely (salt is sometimes used in the permanent cosmetic removal process). This includes no exercise.
  • Sun avoidance and use of sunscreens (after the second week) is critical to healing. Use a daily sunscreen SPF 30 or higher on your third week after a permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • Avoid harsh irritating products on your skin for 10 days after your permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • You may shower and wash your hair on the 5th day after your permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • Eyeliner and lip clients may notice swelling is worse on the morning after your permanent cosmetic procedure. Swelling will typically last 1-3 days, depending on the sensitivity of your eyes or lips
  • Do not apply makeup to the treatment area until it is healed.
  • Regular exercise can be resumed in 5 days after a permanent cosmetic procedure.
  • Do not swim until the treatment area is healed, as chlorine and salt water can fade or alter your pigment. Lakes can have bacteria. It is best to avoid lake swimming during the healing process. Even after the treatment area has healed, it is wise to apply a barrier ointment (such as Aquaphor or Vaseline) to the area before a swim.
  • DO NOT RUB, SCRATCH, OR PICK the permanent cosmetic procedure area –This is a must, because you do not want an infection. Let the sloughing skin exfoliate naturally to avoid scarring or premature loss of pigment. To avoid infections, use clean hands or Q-tips to touch the treatment area during the healing process.
  • You can resume the Retin-A or Retinols after 30 days, but please know that continued use will fade your permanent cosmetics and require more frequent touch ups.
  • Some clients may have pigment fade unevenly. Faded areas will be filled during the follow-up to create a more even appearance. Follow up appointments must be scheduled 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment.
Please contact the office should you have any questions.
IF YOU DO NOT ADHERE TO ALL OF THE LISTED INSTRUCTIONS AND THERE IS LACK OF PIGMENT RETENTION DUE TO NON COMPLIANCE, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS AT $150 PER RETOUCH DURING THE FIRST YEAR AFTER YOUR INITIAL PROCEDURE.

The Day of your Procedure

To secure an appointment over the phone, your details (name, address, phone) must be entered into the database booking system and a non-refundable $50 deposit is required. This deposit will be deducted from your total fee. Failure to cancel or reschedule your appointment within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment will result in forfeiting the deposit.

 

Read ALL of the Important Information Section on this page prior to procedure.

 

On the day of your permanent cosmetic appointment arrive with a clean face, except if you are coming in for an eyebrow procedure. This is especially important for an eyeliner procedure. Rubbing your eyes to remove eye makeup causes too much irritation prior to the procedure. Eyebrow clients should come in with their eyebrow makeup penciled/powdered as they normally wear it.

  • Bring some of your favorite makeup colors so that your permanent cosmetic technician can match the color. You can also bring some photos that you have seen online, to indicate what you DO and DON’T like. Since the consultation includes looking at actual client photos, to determine your design preference, it is not necessary to search for photos.
  • When you arrive, at the time of your appointment, your permanent cosmetic technician will explain the procedure. This is an in-depth thorough consultation, discussing what you want to achieve, and the most appropriate shape, design and color for you.
  • The permanent cosmetic technician will clean and prepare the area. While you complete consultation forms, a topical numbing cream is applied. During this time (approximately 15-20 minutes) the cream will have time to work.
  • Pigments are selected to complement your skin tone and hair coloring. We work together to achieve the most suitable results for you.
  • The numbing cream is removed and the permanent cosmetic procedure area is photographed.
  • Measurements are taken and the new brow, lip or eyeliner contour is designed. When you are happy with the shape, the pigment implanting begins.

Really effective numbing agents are used during the treatment – You may experience a slight vibrating/scratchy or pinching sensation similar to tweezing your eyebrows. During the permanent cosmetic procedure your technician will apply a second type of numbing gel to further numb the permanent cosmetic procedure area.

  • The permanent cosmetic process is the same, regardless of the machine/tools used. A small grouping of needles will penetrate the superficial layers of the dermis, implanting color. When the skin heals, the color pigment stays in the skin.
  • Most of the anxiety surrounding eye procedures is fear that the needle will touch the eye. The needles do not protrude far enough from the tube to penetrate deeper than the second layer of skin. The permanent cosmetic technician holds your eye shut during the eyeliner application. You do not have to worry that the needle will “accidentally” penetrate the eye or harm your vision.
  • Immediately after the permanent cosmetic procedure you may see some swelling and possibly redness. This will subside in 1-2 days. Applying a cold compress to the area will greatly reduce swelling and discomfort. Over the next few days if you still experience these symptoms, ice the area and be patient.
  • After the procedure the area will feel tender and slightly irritated for a few days. The discomfort is unpleasant, but expected.
  • *For some clients the color may be darker than anticipated. Be aware that this is NOT the final color. Pigment is on both the epidermis (top layers of skin) and the dermis (lower layers of skin). The treated area will form a thin scab, the same color as the permanent cosmetic pigment chosen.
  • *After the treatment, we will review all the important permanent cosmetic aftercare instructions. You will take home the written healing schedule along with the aftercare instructions. Everyone who has a lip procedure will leave with a soothing aftercare balm.
  • * Within a week after the permanent cosmetic procedure, the treated epidermis will slough off, lightening the overall effect. After the area has completely exfoliated, you may apply traditional cosmetics. Once the permanent cosmetic area is fully healed the color will be lighter, lines will soften, the area will be smoother, and the overall look will be more natural.
  • * You are required to return in 4-6 weeks for a follow up visit. The first visit of the process is considered the saturation visit. The following visit is known as the focus visit. As the names imply, the saturation appointment accomplishes the basic design and color saturation. The “focus” follow-up appointment addresses any additionally needs; symmetry and detail of the healed result. This follow up appointment is part of the permanent cosmetic procedure and is included in the treatment price. During the follow up appointment the permanent cosmetics technician may or may not adjust the color, design, or any uneven spots if needed.
  • Over time you will begin to lose permanent cosmetic pigment color, as the skin naturally exfoliates and regenerates. This lightening process generally takes a few years; however chemical peels/retinal products, excessive tanning/exposure to UV rays, etc. can expedite the exfoliating process.

Choosing a Technician

Properly applied Permanent Cosmetics

looks so natural that your friends never know, however the opposite is also true. You realize, of course, that your face is a very important part of your overall appearance and wellbeing. Choosing the right artist/technician is vital to your wellbeing. Not all permanent cosmetic artists/technicians are equal. Like many things, it is Buyer Beware. Picking a technician based on the lowest price “quoted” without regard to skills and sanitation standards is not recommended. It is suggested that you look for a permanent cosmetic technician in the same way that you research doctor, dentist, etc.

Each state has unique requirements. In New York permanent cosmetics/tattooing is regulated by the Department of Health. There is no prescribed requirement for training, although permits are required for the technician. Reality is that many technicians do not comply with state laws and/or basic standards. There are technicians who seem to simply not care about the consequences of non-compliance. They offer services without training and under some very questionable circumstances.

There are many criteria to consider when seeking a permanent cosmetic technician.

Skills and Experience

Although ethics dictates that a person only offer permanent cosmetic services when he/she is skilled and credentialed to do so, many are not qualified. Tattoo equipment can be purchased online by anyone.

“Artists/Technicians” can purchase video training without having completed any hands on procedures or successfully passing competency examinations. This is clearly dangerous!

To avoid problems, ask the permanent cosmetics technician about his/her background. How long have they been in the permanent cosmetic industry? Since there is no licensing requirement it may be difficult to confirm, but you can ask to see training certificates to verify dates of initial education.

More importantly how many procedures have they done? Many permanent cosmetic professionals do other beauty treatments and only do permanent cosmetic procedures occasionally, a few times a month or less! They may have been in the industry for a while, but they may not have significant permanent makeup experience.

Ask to see all certificates of training and continuing education. Since this field is rapidly evolving, regular continuing education is a must. Ask to see the current Blood borne Pathogens Training certificate. This class is required for professionals who perform invasive procedures so that they learn how to perform safe procedures and prevent cross contamination.

Look at the technician’s photos of before and after work. Make sure to ask if the photos are their own work or stock photos or copied from the internet! Does their work appeal to you and match your own personal style? Photo examples of work should also include examples of “healed work.” The appearance of the permanent cosmetic procedure area changes during the healing process.

Sanitation standards and safety regulations

Permanent cosmetic professionals should work in an environment that is considered safe for conducting invasive procedures. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) set standards for physical cleanliness and a sanitary working environment. Determine if your procedure will take place in a private room dedicated to permanent cosmetics, or in an open area where other services such as nails or hair are being conducted with contaminants circulating in the air? Is there hot and cold running water in the procedure room and not just in a restroom? Cross contamination and infection prevention depends on set criteria, so you should look for a permanent cosmetic technician who is compliant with a code of ethics to safeguard the clients.

Consider how the technician will perform the procedure. Ask if all the supplies used during a permanent cosmetic procedure are new and disposable for each client? Does the permanent cosmetic professional use safe pigments/anesthetics?

Communication and Customer Service

The ability to communicate honestly with your technician is of paramount importance. You will be telling her/him how you want to look, the color(s) and design work you prefer. Your technician will be conveying information during and after the procedure regarding after care, follow up appointments and important details that require you both to understand one another.

There are people coming into the US from other countries, conducting procedures at salons or even worse “home parties.” They then return to their home country and the clients who received permanent cosmetics are left without follow up services or anyone to ask questions of during the healing process period. There are also people who are traveling to other countries and during their stay getting permanent cosmetic services and then returning to the US. This is not a great idea for the same obvious reasons; there are no follow up services or person to ask questions. In addition, I’ve seen cases where the results that indicate lack of skill.

Communication and customer service follows through after the procedure until the procedure area is healed. Most permanent cosmetic technicians, who respect their profession and their art, offer one follow up visit after the initial procedure has healed to ensure that both parties are happy with the results. If the follow up visit is not offered, that technician is below the standard of care in the industry

If you are considering permanent cosmetics, the information provided should be educational and helpful to make the right decision. Getting a permanent cosmetic procedure, like choosing a professional to enhance your appearance or any health related services, without doing the proper research can be heartbreaking. The outcome can be disastrous when any of the above requirements is not met. Unfortunately these unsuccessful procedures can lead to removal by laser, or corrections, or both, which costs more money, time, and causes trauma. Take the time to find a qualified professional!

Pricing

How much does it cost?

This is one of the most often asked questions by people interested in permanent cosmetics. Important questions for you to answer include: What are you willing to pay for a fulfilling long lasting beauty service? Do you want the least expensive person you can find?

The US average cost per procedure varies but averages $400-$600. Advanced work, para-medical procedures, are priced at $200 to $250 per hour. Cost should not be the most important factor when choosing a potential permanent cosmetic professional. Most important should be the training and skill of the person performing the procedure and the confidence of the client in that person’s skill. –Data Sourced from Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals www.spcp.org

The fees for permanent cosmetics at Enhancing Beauty are average for the US and very reasonable for New York City. The prices are between the most and least expensive. Technicians who have training, experience, and comply with sanitation and sterilization standards to ensure your safety are probably not the least expensive. Save money on a new outfit but don’t look for a bargain in PERMANENT FACIAL COSMETICS. There are many people with really unattractive (even awful) permanent cosmetics, who regret having made their decision based on price.

A permanent cosmetic technician who is properly trained, attends continuing education classes, uses proper sterilization, good equipment, excellent anesthetics, top of the line pigments, disposable single use products/machine accessories, has suitable insurance, does procedures in a premium facility, and is compliant with ethical business practices has a higher cost of legally doing business than someone who does not follow these practices and is less committed to quality and safety standards. Like most professional services, in the permanent cosmetic industry, you get what you pay for!

What does the price include beyond basic overhead costs?

Skill and 10 years’ experience from a permanent cosmetic artist that has passed the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional (CPCP) examination. The practitioner (Ms. Meese) maintains her credentials with continuing education units (CEU) and proof of OSHA class participation.

Enhancing Beauty specializes in permanent cosmetics and does not offer any other services.

Sanitation and cross-contamination prevention is mandatory. Before and after each client, all work surfaces are disinfected with an EPA registered disinfectant appropriate for cosmetic tattooing.  All other supplies are disposable for single-use.
The operational design and construction of the machines prevents cross contamination. You will see the needle that will be used before it is removed from its package. This ensures sterility and single-use. The sterilization date is stamped on the package.
Only pigments that have been formulated with powders that are listed on the FDA’s Food Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) listing and are made in the USA are used.

  • Top quality anesthetic products are used, to minimize the discomfort of the procedure. The products are purchased directly from the US formulators.
  • For every procedure, only sterile single-use water cups, purchased from a medical supply company, are used, this eliminates any potential bacteria found in normal tap and distilled water.
  • Nitrile gloves are used as some people have allergies to less expensive latex gloves.
  • Prices include a follow-up appointment, after the procedure has healed, to determine if any additional work is needed.
  • Complementary consultations available with all of your questions answered.

The field of permanent cosmetics is a professional career for those of us who have training and experience; not a hobby. Permanent Cosmetics is my passion—to help you look and feel your best!

“It is priceless to look your best all the time!”
