Eyebrows

One of today’s hottest trends are eyebrows! They frame our eyes; help define our features and improve our overall facial presentation. Besides losing our eyebrows as we age or go through medical conditions, no matter contending with melting, smearing eyebrow makeup in the desert heat. Eyebrow hair does not often grow back, and growth can be inconsistent with the original eyebrow lines we once had. But none of this means you cannot have perfect eyebrows 24/7! Permanent eyebrow makeup defines, reshapes, darkens as needed and can fill in sparse or thinning areas in eyebrows. It looks good all the time, whether working, sleeping or swimming!

At Forever Fabulous, Valerie specializes in designing your perfect eyebrows! Tailored to your face and eye bone arch, she incorporates a variety of techniques to achieve a natural style that opens and flatters your eyes while aligning with facial structure. Affordable, professional results that reduces your make up application time and instantly gives you a more youthful and polished look.

Lip Coloring

Tired of constantly reapplying lipstick or receding, thin, faded lips with crooked lines? Permanent makeup can create fuller, more defined lips ensuring a glorious smile all the time! Choose from a variety of shades matching your favorite lipliner and/or lipstick or go with a neutral color for a more natural look. Restoring pigment to aging lip lines adds youthful fullness and even minimizes the appearance of wrinkles around the lips.

When selecting a vivid shade, all that is needed is a subtle lip gloss to enhance the lips. If a more natural color is used, lipstick color can still be applied, and the permanent lip makeup will prevent your color from bleeding. Embrace the ease of a natural look all day and night with permanent and affordable lip color and liner.

3D Areola Pigmentation

For breast cancer patients undergoing reconstruction procedures, breast re-pigmentation can be recreated with or without there actually being a graphed areola and nipple, yet still creating a natural look. Having completed advanced training in the art of 3D areola micro-pigmentation and using a specialized shadowing technique called Simultaneous Contrast, Valerie Polson is skilled at recreating a natural breast look. This technique gives the areola and nipple the appearance of being a 3D structure and can also drastically reduce the appearance of other surgery scars. This procedure is a great confidence builder both physically and emotionally and helps to complete the reconstructive process with a natural look and feel.

Permanent makeup is the art and application of custom color blended pigments inserted into the dermal layer of skin to create a dimensional eyebrow, soft subtle eyeliner or a sparkling lip colour.

Yes, it is totally safe if:

  1. You have a technician that is licensed and well educated (certified)
  2. The technician has a business license
  3. The technician is current with their Blood Borne Pathogen (BBP) education which in most states is required to be taken yearly.
  4. The technician follows all of OSHA and CDC guidelines for cross contamination.
  5. The technician uses only single, sterile, one time use needles and machine parts as well as all products and they are properly disposed of after your procedure.
  6. The technician uses products that are made in the USA and have been used by professionals for years with no complications.

Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that fills in thin eyebrow areas to make them look fuller. During microblading, color pigments are applied to the eyebrow area, to give the appearance of hairs. Valerie uses a microblade, which is a small tool with needles, to delicately apply pigment. The color effect will fade over time, so touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired look.

If the Permanent Makeup is applied correctly (inserted into the dermal layer of skin), the pigments used are of high quality and the client follows their aftercare exactly as prescribed by their technician, the procedure will last a long time. Mitigating circumstances however will dictate how long the procedure application will last. Influences such as your general health, chlorine, sun, tanning beds, medications, skin care products containing exfoliating agents, the use of a total sun block on the procedure area, and smoking can affect the longevity of the pigment color.

Plan to schedule at least 2-3 hours for your procedure. Procedures may take longer depending on the condition and hydration of your skin, your pain threshold, your anxiety level and if you are on any medication or homeopathics that would make you bleed. Anesthesia will be placed on the procedure area for approximately 15-20 minutes. The procedure area will be drawn on and the implantation of pigment takes place.

Pain is relative. I use the most effective topical anesthesia’s available. Using these anesthesia’s together make most people very comfortable during the procedure application.

There are several things to consider prior to your procedure, no caffeine, no alcohol and do not schedule your appointment around your menstrual cycle as all of these will make you more sensitive.

If you have had a traditional artistic tattoo or have had piercings you will find that permanent makeup is easier to tolerate than these procedures! Considering you will be numb unlike when you get a traditional tattoo or piercing!

On average, depending on procedure a patient will be swollen 1-3 days. Most patients are able to return to work after the swelling resolves if not sooner. Topical treatment will be used for 7-10 days after.

Yes, if you are under a physician’s care I want you to obtain a release written on their prescription note pad stating that it is safe for you to have a procedure performed. Your health care provider will know if you will heal without any complications, if you are prone to infections or have a compromised immune system.

Contraindications include but are not limited to: Blood thinners, heart medications, aspirin or products containing aspirin, medications for any disease like diabetes, lupus or any autoimmune disease. Also any vitamins or supplements that thin the blood would need to be stopped prior to your procedure but only with the consent of your health care provider.

Any type of antihistamine will slow down the release of histamine in the procedure area. This serves a three-fold purpose:

  1. The antihistamine will dry up your tears making your eyeliner procedure easier for the technician.
  2. The antihistamine will lessen the swelling effect on the procedure area making the insertion of pigment easier for the technician.
  3. The antihistamine helps many people to relax and fall asleep during the procedure.

Always consult with your health care provider before taking any medication. If you take any medication do not drive to or from your procedure. Have someone drive you and pick you up.

Depending on how many times I had to go over an area to implant the pigment, your skin may show very little signs of trauma or may be swollen and red. If you have taken an antihistamine, your swelling will be less than if you have not taken any medication. You may notice swelling for 24-48 hours.

The area will appear darker at first because of the blood and lymph that has been brought to the surface during the permanent makeup application. The procedure area tissue will crust a bit and this tissue will slough off usually within 5-7 days leaving you with a softer color. The healing process depends on how healthy you are and how hydrated your skin is. The younger you are the faster you will heal and if you are older your skin will take longer to regenerate. All of this is explained in your paperwork at your consultation.

It is suggested that you have your makeup applied at least 8 weeks prior to a special function or wait until after your function is over (such as your wedding! You don’t want to be swollen or still in the healing process on your wedding day. Plan well ahead!).
