About Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup is a term used to describe cosmetic tattooing or the use of pigment on the face to mimic makeup. While there are many different reasons to elect for permanent makeup, many patients simply want to minimize their daily makeup routine while achieving lasting, natural beauty. Advanced Plastic Surgery Center in Arlington, VA offers standard and 6D microblading, lip lining, and eye lining. Once applied, your results will be lasting and resistant against water, cleanser, sweat, and even makeup remover. Schedule an appointment with our experienced aesthetician to learn more about permanent makeup. In some cases, we can perform your cosmetic tattooing procedure the same day as your consultation!
Microblading – Microblading, or 6D eyebrows, is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing procedure that creates a thick, full brow using gentle strokes that resemble individual brows. Your treatment will be fully tailored to match your facial features and meet your aesthetic goals. Results appear very natural and last but will require touch-ups on occasion to maintain their shape and color.
Eyeliner – Permanent eyeliner can be performed on the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both. The procedure is typically more tolerable than anticipated with results that can last several years when properly cared for. Patients can choose the color of the pigment that will be utilized and can customize the width of the line tattooed along the eyeline.
Lip liner – Lip line tattooing is incredibly popular as it helps the lips to look more defined and fuller without the need for injectable fillers. Lip lining is highly customizable with patients able to choose the pigment color and width of the line before it is created. Results are typically stunning, lasting, and natural, reducing your need for lipstick and lip color.
"Always wonderful Thanks for the great support and kindness."- M.B. / Office Visit / Sep 20, 2018
"From start to finish I have had the best experience with Dr. Munasifi, Ms. Cami (patient coordinator) and the rest of the staff! I had a revision breast augmentation and a full tummy tuck. I decided to add the tummy tuck 5 days before the surgery and both the Dr. and surgery center were completely accommodating. Dr. Munasifi is so gentle during the surgery that you have minimal downtime. As long as you follow all pre and post-op instructions you will feel great after surgery. I had no pain and never had to take any pain medication besides Tylenol. Since the surgery, I have also gotten a facial and my first botox injections from PA Danielle (who is also very gentle). I live 1hr away but I plan to come here for everything in the future, completely worth it! I even have friends from different parts of the US that want to fly to Dr. Munasifi to have procedures done by him because of my experience and incredible heal time and results."- D.S. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

Cosmetic Tattooing FAQs
Although it is called permanent makeup, semi-permanent is a more accurate description. In most cases, your makeup will need touching up to remain vibrant. Like any tattoo, cosmetic makeup fades in time from exposure to the sun and other chemicals and elements. As your pigment fades, you may decide to choose a different color for touch-ups and reapplications.
Is It Painful?
In our experience, patients typically feel less pain than they anticipate. That being said, patients usually experience some degree of discomfort during their permanent makeup procedure. If you have not had a tattoo before and are fearful about the potential pain, ask about the use of topical anesthesia to help you feel more comfortable.
Is It Safe?
When performed by an experienced aesthetician, cosmetic tattooing is actually very safe and poses very few risks. The tools, technologies, and treatment areas will be sanitized prior to your procedure. This is the benefit of having cosmetic tattooing performed at an accredited facility, like Advanced Plastic Surgery Center.
