"I really enjoyed the experience I had at IContour Anti Aging Center. I had the iContour Signature Basic Facial with Marie. I liked how the appointment began with a machine taking photos to identify spots, pores, wrinkles, etc. Marie provided a quick overview of what would be focused on during the appointment. The studio was very clean and provided a relaxing environment as soft music played in the background. I would recommend checking this place out if you're looking for a facial treatment in the Newbury Street area."- D.M. / Google / Sep 21, 2021

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Permanent Makeup?
Our staff at iContour Anti-Aging Center are highly experienced in utilizing permanent makeup to enhance various areas of the face, including the:
Eyelids: Typically, eyeliner is how people add additional emphasis to their eyes. However, the process of applying eyeliner can be very time-consuming. Permanent makeup allows people to make their eyelashes appear more lush without having to worry about applying eyeliner every morning. In this way, we can enhance the eyes by bringing out their natural beauty, making them look brighter, and correcting their shape and/or size. Additionally, it has proven to be a popular form of treatment for patients with thin or no eyelashes.
Eyebrows: While they don't get much attention, your eyebrows are an overlooked facial feature that can either help or hurt your appearance. A set of strong and properly groomed eyebrows will enhance and define your face. If you have thin or sparse eyebrows thanks to genetics, overplucking, aging, or another cause, microblading can help you get fuller, natural eyebrows. This newer technique uses a skillful technique to fill in or recreate your eyebrows. You don't have to use makeup pencils and eyebrow gels to define and fill in your eyebrows anymore, thanks to our amazing, long-lasting results.
Lips: Permanent makeup can be used to ensure your lips never look dull or lifeless again. We add pigment to the lips, building layers of color throughout them, which helps to even out the tone of the lips and even correct asymmetry and wrinkles. By adding color to this area of your face, you're sure to always look stunning, professional, and prepared. Perhaps best of all, patients will not have to worry about bleeding lipstick or having to refresh their lipstick every few hours. Our patients usually receive a natural tone during their treatment, which enables them to not wear lipstick or simply apply different shades of lipstick over their permanent makeup to create a more dramatic appearance when the occasion calls for it. Most people find that their lipstick product tends to last longer when applied over permanent makeup than their bare lip.
What Can I Expect from My Permanent Makeup Procedure?
Prior to your permanent makeup procedure, we'll sit down and discuss your goals, desired outcomes, and more. These will help us get to know you and your expectations better while also setting realistic expectations. At the start of your procedure, we'll clean the areas to be tattooed, and we will mix the pigments for your makeup. The needle we use is also new and sterilized to ensure all safety and health measures are taken. The procedure is quite similar to that of getting a tattoo on the body — you may experience some stinging or discomfort, but it's usually manageable. When we are finished tattooing your permanent makeup on, we will provide you with very specific cleaning and at-home care guidelines. It's important to limit sun exposure until your cosmetic tattooing has healed. Please call us if you notice an abnormal amount of swelling or if the tattooed area begins to bleed. While tattoos are long-lasting, they do fade over time — so touch-ups can be scheduled on an as-needed basis.
Wake Up Looking Fresh
