Semi-Permanent Makeup

What is Semi-Permanent Makeup?

Semi-Permanent Makeup (SPMU) is a tattoo that creates natural-looking makeup enhancements on the face. Leslie Mitchell, BSN, RN, LE, specializes in brow and lip tattoos. It is a two-step process in which brows will have a follow-up visit 6-8 weeks after the initial appointment, and lips will have a follow-up visit 8-10 weeks after the initial visit. The follow-up is where we decide if any adjustments are needed and are included with the initial payment.

How long does it last?

This treatment is considered semi-permanent, meaning the tattoo will fade with time, and a refresh will be required. There are many factors that affect pigment retention, and this will be different for everyone. Typically brows will need a refresh every 1-3 years, and lips will need a refresh every 3-5 years. It is very important for the client to follow pre- and post-care instructions in order to have the best outcome possible.


Microblading is done with a handheld tool. This method is used to create hair strokes on the brow. It is meant to blend with your natural hair and maintain a natural look. It is best for normal/dry and youthful skin types.

Combo Brow

The Combo Brow is a combination of microblading and machine shading. It is best for people lacking brow hairs, brow shape, or those who have coarse brow hair. Microblading strokes can be placed only at the head of the brow with machine shading done on the tails, or it can have microblading done throughout the brow with shading between strokes.

Powder Brows

Powder Brow is a technique that uses a machine for shading throughout the brow. These brows will look tinted or have a soft application of brow pencil. This is good for all skin types.

Lip Blushing

Lip Blushing utilizes only one method, and it is a lip tattoo that is done with a machine. It helps define your natural shape and enhance your lip color. It is meant to give your lips a soft natural tint.


Dermal fillers are injectables used to plump areas where volume is lost due to aging, genetic factors, or sun damage. There are many types of dermal fillers, but we use hyaluronic acid (HA) and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) primarily. While there are many kinds of aesthetic options for anti-aging, CaHA provides results beyond hyaluronic acid’s ability. While HA fillers fill in depleted spaces, that is the extent of their actions. CaHA, on the other hand, is the only injectable option that gives you immediate results plus long-term improvement because it stimulates collagen and elastin production. Both fillers have great benefit and results, and location is the main determining factor of which filler is used. Our board certified nurse practitioner, Brittany Holcomb, FNP-C, utilizes the most up-to-date techniques and advanced technology to reverse time and provide a natural, youthful appearance.

HA fillers are used to brighten the tear troughs, fill in etched lines, in the lips, and around the mouth. CaHA fillers are used to build a bony contour in the cheeks, jawline, and chin. When CaHA is diluted, it can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, arms, thighs, elbows, abdomen, and buttocks.

HA fillers last anywhere from 6-18 months, and CaHA fillers last 18 months when used for volume replacement. When diluted, CaHA can be used to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity. The patient can maintain these results for years.

Fillers can be sensitive in certain areas, mostly the lips. We use our triple numbing technique to make this procedure as comfortable as possible. Other areas, such as the chin, jawline, cheeks, and tear troughs are not generally painful but may be mildly uncomfortable.

Immediate results are seen following filler treatments. Leave the office rested, refreshed, and with a more youthful appearance.
