Permanent makeup allows women an all day, every day makeup solution. With permanent makeup, you save mirror time while maintaining a natural appearance. Micropigmentation, also known as permanent makeup in Annapolis or cosmetic tattoos, uses state-of-the-art technology to enhance your eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner, or to camouflage scars. Some of the most common uses include:
  • Permanent eyebrows/adding thickness to thinning eyebrows
  • Permanent eyeliner
  • Permanent lipstick (lip color)
  • Camouflaging scars (such as surgical scars from a facelift or breast surgery)
A common misconception is that permanent makeup may result in an unnatural appearance. However, micropigmentation can be adjusted to be as subtle or as standout as you would like – much like traditional makeup. It is important to discuss exactly what you are looking to achieve with our licensed aesthetician, Kathleen Staffini, during your consultation. This will ensure that you are happy with your results.

How Does Micropigmentation Work?

During your permanent makeup procedure, Kathleen will carefully apply the permanent makeup using customized pigments that were discussed during your consultation. About 30 minutes prior to the procedure, a topical numbing gel is applied to the area. The permanent makeup is applied similarly to a tattoo, however the device is much less painful and is specially designed for micropigmentation. After your procedure, your results will take time to heal and may look slightly different for the first couple days or so. Kathleen will provide you with detailed care instructions to ensure proper healing. Like with a tattoo, the skin may be a bit dry or scaly at first, but this will shed on its own to reveal your beautiful results. See below for patient results here at Chesapeake Plastic Surgery.

"The best thing about the surgery for me was how comforting Dr. Barlow was. Getting any surgery is always nerve wracking, but anytime Dr. Barlow came in the room and would begin talking ”all of my fears would go away."
