As women, most of our time is spent thinking about and caring for others. Whether you are a mom, a caretaker to a family member, engrossed in a demanding career, or all the above, my guess is that if you’re reading this you are overdue for some self-care.

During a time where trends are constantly cycling, why not invest in something timeless? Permanent cosmetics are entirely customizable and unique to you, so there is truly something for everyone. At The Permanent Cosmetic & Lash Studio in Chadds Ford, PA, the artists gift women every single day with an affordable and priceless confidence boost to make them look more like their vibrant and youthful selves. The services at The Studio can last anywhere from 1-15 years, making it a true investment in yourself and your confidence.

Your permanent cosmetic journey starts with a consultation. You’ll meet with your artist and discuss exactly what the procedure will be like, discuss pigment choices, post treatment, and the healing process. It will all be absolutely perfect, and your artist will ensure you are completely comfortable before the procedure begins.

Drawing on your eyebrows every day isn’t just time consuming, but it is near impossible to get the same look each time. Microblading and/or powder-fill techniques from artists that have a combined 38 years in the beauty industry can give you brows that last for 1-3 years before even needing a touch up!

Permanent eyeliner is truly instant gratification and entirely customizable to your vibe. You can work with our artists to ensure that the color, shape, and thickness is absolutely perfect before the procedure begins. Eyeliner tends to be the longest lasting permanent cosmetic procedure, as we have seen clients’ liner that has stuck with them for 15+ years!

Finishing the trifecta of permanent cosmetics, lip blushing is essential. As we age, we tend to lose the pigment in our lips, thus losing that shape and color. Lip blushing is a way to customize the color and correct any undertones in your natural lip while restoring lost pigment. The lip blushing procedure typically lasts 3-5 years before needing a touch up.

After the procedure, you will be given a home care bag with products to aid in the healing process, and a hard copy of post treatment instructions which are gone over with both the artist and our front desk before and after the procedure.

One of the best things about permanent cosmetics is that there is hardly any down time! The day after the procedure you may experience minimal swelling that should dissipate within a day or so. It is important to note that immediately after the procedure, within the first week or so, your makeup will appear much darker than what the end result will be. The pigment adheres to the surface cells of the skin and that will typically flake off within 5-10 days. Because the healing process actually overshadows the pigment, color will begin to come back through the skin over a few weeks. You can’t rush Mother Nature!
