Permanent Cosmetic
Application Process FAQs

Permanent cosmetic procedures are safe when the technician has had proper education and follows CDC and OSHA regulations like single-use sterile needles, and machine parts are correctly used exclusively for each client and properly disposed of at completion. Teresa Rudishauser is licensed in the State of Oregon and subject to regular health & safety inspections regarding permanent cosmetics procedures. 

Using a state-of-the-art digital machine made specifically for permanent cosmetics that allows pigment to glide into the skin with a smooth and gentle vibration. This special digital machine also allows going to the perfect depth for longer-lasting permanent cosmetics with maximum comfort.

If you have allergies to regular make-up your are more than likely the perfect candidate for permanent make up.  We will do a small "patch test" then wait 4-6 weeks before proceeding.

You will rest comfortably in a private room during the procedure. Numbing cream is used prior and during the entire process.

After the procedure you will receive a sheet on post-treatment care and it is important that you follow these instructions. 

A follow-up visit will be scheduled for 4-6 weeks after your initial application. Being conservative with the color and shape during the initial application, the follow-up time can be used to fine-tune and touch-up an area of the skin that may have expelled  the pigmenting process. At the touch up visit clients can say they would like the area darker and thicker.

Because the pigment of permanent cosmetics heals into the skin and doesn't wash off, it is considered permanent. Ultra-violet exposure from sun or tanning booths, after care, and skin treatments all may affect the permanence of the micropigmentation.  Fading does occur requiring periodic maintenance to keep permanent cosmetics fresh.

Your permanent cosmetic make-up procedure depends on the skill of the technician, the products used for application, how deep the cosmetic tattoo is made into the skin, how well you take care of the treated area while it is healing and whether or not you use a total sun block after the procedure has completely healed.

All of these factors will determine how long the permanent cosmetics will last. Color enhancers are also suggested "as needed" to keep the procedure looking fresh and new.

(Areola Repigmentation may also be called Areola Tattooing, Areola Micropigmentation, Areola Pigmentation, Areola Recoloring, Areola Restoration, or Areola Simulation.)
