Get an Extra 15 Minutes of Sleep with Permanent Makeup

For working professionals and stay-at-home moms, spending an extra 15 minutes in bed can be the ultimate game changer. Whatever your profession, chances are a good 15 minutes, or more are spent on applying and reapplying makeup. While those precious 15 minutes may not seem like a lot, they can quickly add up. At that rate, the average woman spending 15 minutes per workday on her makeup clocks in nearly 65 hours in a year just doing this task.

Rather than spend that time standing in front of the mirror, put that time back into your sleep with permanent makeup.

Permanent Makeup in 2018

Permanent makeup today is not the same permanent makeup of your grandmother’s time. Today, new techniques in application have made micropigmentation results more natural looking and longer lasting. The wide array of ink options, delicate application, and types of treatment mean that permanent makeup can address diverse concerns in the personalized treatment manner patients are accustomed to.

While options like permanent eyeliner and lip liner remain popular among many of our younger patients, new trends on social media have also led to a popularity boost among younger patients. The desire for full, clean looking eyebrows and luscious lashes has steadily grown in popularity at the same rate that they’re trending on Instagram.

Seal in Your Looks with Permanent Makeup

When our patients come in with questions about the benefits of permanent makeup, many of their queries can be boiled down into one question: How will permanent makeup improve my day-to-day routine?

When it comes down to ranking the benefits of permanent makeup, convenience and flexibility are deciding factors for many patients. In the name of convenience, having professional makeup ready as soon as they’re up in the morning and throughout the day, frees up time spent applying and reapplying makeup.

For others, having a fresh-looking layer of makeup even in the midst of a particularly strenuous day can be game-changing. For athletes and individuals who are in high sweat, physically demanding roles, the piece of mind knowing that their makeup will always stay in place adds an extra boost of confidence and allows women to focus on what is most important.

The benefits of permanent makeup are not exclusive to convenience. For many women, the power of makeup can be life changing. It can not only be a source of creative expression, it can also be a powerful source of self-confidence. For women with health or mobility issues, permanent makeup makes it possible to keep their appearance as beautiful as ever, without feeling limited in any way. For others, permanent makeup helps cover scars and discoloration. At Abadir Associates, permanent makeup has even been used as the final step in reconstructive procedures.

Back to School and Back to Skin – Time to Repair Your Summer Skin

bak-to-skinWhen we think “summer skin,” we’re probably thinking about sun-kissed, bronzed, glowing skin. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Excessive sun damage that accumulated from sun exposure can lead to dry, flaky skin, sagging cheeks, sun spots, advance signs of aging, and even worse—sun burns and hyperpigmentation. If you’re headed back to school you might not be debuting a healthy glow, but rather, overly damaged skin. Want to get fresher, younger skin before heading back to class? Try these tips and treatments to get your skin back on track.

Say Hi to Pretty, with Permanent Makeup

Maybe you’re heading back to school and are dreading having to wake up so early in the morning to put on makeup. Maybe it’s physically very difficult for you to have to “put on your face” every single day. It’s possible that you might have developed darkening scars or skin discoloration from your time in excessive sunlight.

There a lot of reasons why you might want permanent makeup, but one thing’s for sure: it’s unbelievably convenient. Permanent makeup is basically a way to implant pigment on the outer layers of your skin, afterwards, you’ll get long-lasting eyeliner, brows, eyelash extensions, lip liner and lip color that won’t smudge off or wash away with water. Actress Bella Thorne recently got her eyebrows done with permanent makeup– and she loves it!

Say Goodbye to Scarring

Did you know that excessive sun exposure and sun burns can darken your scars, making them even more noticeable? It’s actually why a lot of plastic surgeons and dermatologists recommend reducing any kind of sun exposure after facial rejuvenation treatments or while a person is recovering from a facelift. Facial scarring is actually pretty common in a lot of people, and they usually exist as acne scars, trauma, burn marks, surgical scars, or chicken pox. For a lot of people, facial scarring can cause a lot of embarrassment and feelings of self-consciousness.

Want to get rid scarring or just reverse the effects of sun damage on scars? Try one of (or maybe even a combination of) these scar camouflaging treatments like excisional surgery, grafting, soft tissue augmentation, subcision, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermabrasion.

Dark Eye Circles

Dark eye circles—most people see them as remnants of sleepless nights stressing over tests, papers and assignments. Actually, healthy, relaxed people who’ve gotten lots of summer sleep can get dark eye circles for other reasons: allergies, genetically dark skin pigmentation, and yes, sun exposure. Although it’s not fair, dark eye circles will automatically make you look cranky and tired. Not exactly evidence of a fun, carefree summer. To help with dark eye circles, try a dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm to create volume in thinning, sagging skin that create shadows underneath the eyes.

Summer usually means being out and about, but fall means going back to school and having to look your best all the time. Contact Abadir Associates now, for a consultation on the perfect skin treatment for you to try before fall.

Why Choose Permanent Makeup?

What is Permanent Makeup?

permanent makeup new yorkPermanent makeup (also known as “cosmetic tattooing” or “micropigmentation”) is growing as a popular choice for women who want to define their facial features without having to apply traditional makeup throughout the day. The procedure is short and involves the delicate insertion of pigments into the top layer of your skin with a needle. Results are natural and long-lasting so you may find yourself storing away your makeup brushes and tools after choosing permanent makeup. Permanent makeup comes in a variety of different applications:

  • For top and bottom eyeliner
  • For eyebrows
  • For the lips – including lip liner and full color
  • For the areola after breast reconstruction surgery

Am I a Candidate for Permanent Makeup?

A major reason why so many women are choosing permanent makeup is that it’s a solution for a variety of issues. It can be used to as a permanent “scar camouflage” to repigment discolored scars so that they match the surrounding skin. Men who have areas of facial hair loss from scarring or other causes can also benefit from permanent makeup. The tattooing fills in these areas with small dark dots to give a shaved beard appearance. It’s an excellent choice for those who just want better defined, face-framing features with permanent cosmetics. If you want to add volume and thicken up faint eyebrows, have a health condition that keeps you from applying makeup with a steady hand, or want to cover up a scar or skin discoloration, permanent makeup can help. Permanent makeup may be right for you if you have:

  • Hair loss problems or are experiencing thinning hair
  • Discolored scars
  • Sensitivity to cosmetic makeup
  • Poor vision or mobility that makes applying makeup difficult

The cosmetic technique is suitable for nearly all skin types and can be performed on anyone age 18 or older. The Abadir & Associates team is specially trained and has years of experience with permanent makeup. We take a personalized approach with each client. Schedule a consultation with us to learn more about the technique and to see if it’s the best makeup application for you.
