Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup can give your face a hassle-free way to feel beautiful without wasting time with makeup products. At Smile-Chic, we can provide you with a flawless face that gives you all the desired features that will last.

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup also called micro pigmentation or cosmetic tattoos, is performed using a tattoo pen containing iron oxide, allowing pigments to be tattooed to the desired areas to create the appearance of makeup. This treatment works with micro pigmentation, using a needle to place pigment granules beneath the upper layers of skin, and is considered a popular cosmetic enhancement for those with makeup allergies or those unable to wear makeup daily.

At Smile-Chic, we offer permanent makeup to enhance your features and help you feel as beautiful as you are. Our options for permanent makeup include the following:

  • Permanent Eyeliner: There are multiple types of eyeliner tattoos, as they can be based on the patient’s personal aesthetic choice. However, lash line enhancements can add a base color to your lashes to help them pop and make them look fuller. Semi-permanent eyeliner can be applied above the eyelashes, such as cat’s eyes and smoky wings, for a creative effect.
  • Permanent Lip Blushing: Lip blushing is a permanent makeup technique that adds a sheer color across the entire lip. The color can help define your lip shape without the need for filler. However, considered a more intense process, it’s a semi-permanent treatment that provides subtle lip color lasting between three to five years.
  • Permanent Eyebrows: Also known as microblading, it can restore the eyebrow shape and color with semi-permanent pigment. It is a natural way of achieving fuller-looking eyebrows that last for at least a year until further touchups are needed.
  • Permanent Lip Liner: Permanent lip liners are a permanent makeup technique placed along the outer lip line to enhance symmetry, add pigmentation, and better define the lips.

Most procedures are performed after applying local anesthetic to the skin. Permanent makeup is considered safe when performed by professional estheticians. Most permanent makeup is semi-permanent and requires touchups, but these treatments can last for years, giving you a dazzling, polished look. Because everyone’s skin is unique, It’s essential to speak with our team of estheticians to decide which permanent makeup treatment option will suit your skin and not cause allergic reactions.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
