Permanent eyeliner is a tattooing technique that deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. Traditional eyeliner can smudge, smear, or wear off after a few hours. Furthermore, many find it difficult to achieve the consistent eyeliner shape and style they want from day to day. This treatment is ideal for those who want a permanent, waterproof eyeliner that is hassle-free, consistent, and always fresh.
At DermaHealth, we offer a variety of eyeliner shapes and colors to meet each individual’s unique style and preference. Some may feel both upper and lower eyeliner suits their needs best, while others feel only an upper or a lower eyeliner is appropriate for them. From an extra-thin eyeliner that simply enhances the eyelashes to a medium-thick eyeliner that defines and accentuates the eyes, we will work with you to develop your perfect permanent eyeliner solution.
While most of our clients want a black or brown eyeliner, we also offer fashion colors, including blue, green, and violet on request. Due to safety concerns, we do not apply permanent eyeliner to the wet line of the eyelid.
