Stopping the aging process and living eternally has been an enduring human desire, sought by Egyptian pharaohs, Chinese emperors, and Ponce de Leon's search for the Fountain of Youth. Cosmetic medicine has developed a number of nonsurgical procedures that can camouflage the effects of sun exposure and the passing years. These procedures seem to be gaining in popularity versus surgical procedures.
Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, can eliminate the daily hassle of applying makeup. Permanent cosmetics never run or smear, and are great for people with allergies to traditional cosmetics as well as for those who have a difficult time applying makeup. To produce the desired results, permanent makeup usually requires one or more touch-up procedures after initial application.
Permanent makeup can be applied to create the appearance of hair and is often used to define, shape, and fill in sparse areas of the eyebrows. Arched, feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are defined in any shape you like through this procedure. Permanent eyebrow makeup can also be used to create the look of a full pair of eyebrows for people who have lost all of their facial hair, often due to chemotherapy or other medical conditions.
Permanent lip liner and color can improve the appearance of lips for women and men. It helps lips appear more defined without surgery or fillers and restores color to lips that are too pale. Permanent lip liner eliminates the daily use of pencils to outline, fill-in, or reshape lip borders. Permanent lip color decreases the need to reapply lipstick or lip gloss. Lip tattooing helps correct and balance the symmetry of lips that are uneven, too thin, too thick, or scarred. It can also enhance the natural color and shape of "perfect" lips.
Lower & Upper Eyeliner Permanent makeup can be applied in a variety of ways to help enhance the eyes. Permanent eyeliner is applied to line both the top and bottom lids, to create a soft look, a defined line, or anything in between.
To add glamour and beauty to the eyes, eyelash extensions made from various materials are offered at Elie, ranging from Faux Mink, Faux Fox, Silk and Real Mink to Real Human Hair. Eyelash extensions require a touch-up every 2-3 weeks.
