what is permanent eyeliner?
Permanent eyeliner frames the eyes and can make eyelashes appear thicker, darker and fuller. It may eliminate the need to apply eyeliner with makeup and enhances the eyes on no-makeup days. It can enhance the shape or balance the symmetry of your eyes.
Permanent eyeliner can also enhance or intensify eye color and make eyes appear brighter.
for those who prefer a more natural look, eyeliner is applied along the base of the lashes making it appear as though you have full and thick lashes. This is known as “lash enhancement liner.”
For those who desire a more dramatic look, smokey liner will be a thicker, smokier look with or without a wing.

After Your Appointment
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
No makeup, especially mascara for 7-10 days after. After 7-10 days, it must be a new tube of mascara to reduce the risk of infection
Contact lenses should not be put back in for 5-7 days
No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week
Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks and wear a hat when outdoors

Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
Avoid swimming and chlorinated hot tubs for the first 10 days
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area
