How To Choose
What to look for when choosing the right permanent makeup specialist.
Just like choosing a plastic surgeon, you never want to make decisions based on cost or convenience but rather on experience, education, skill and professionalism. Some important facts to base your decision on….
- Be careful – Many technicians use professional brochures that do not have their own work. This is common in the industry so it is always best to have personally seen their work or to get referrals.
- Are they board certified?
- Are they experienced?
- Are they insured by a professional organization?
- Are they members of the Society of Permanent Makeup Professionals (SPCP)?
- Do they do correction work?
- Do they have a medical background? (not necessary, but very helpful in understanding sterile environments)
- Do they have an occupational license and can they show it?
- Do they have a medical waste permit and can they prove it?
- Do they require using a antiviral prescription for lip procedures on clients with a background of cold sores?
- Do they have a supervising physician? (required by law!)
Sharon Niles can answer YES! to all of the above questions and has over 15 years of expert experience.

General Guidelines for all Procedures:
- Avoid all aspirin products, niacin, Vitamin E, ibuprofen type products (read labels), fish oils, flaxseed oil, etc…, for one to two weeks prior to procedure (exception is 800 mg ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to your procedure – see below).
- If you are on any type of prescribed blood thinners, i.e., coumadin, etc., you must have a doctor’s permission to stop for approximately 4-5 days prior to your appointment.
- Purchase frozen peas to reduce the swelling for lips and eyes.
- Make sure you have Vaseline on hand.
- Drink plenty of water the day prior to having your procedures, pigment is
retained more easily in a well-hydrated skin.
- Avoid alcohol 3-4 days prior and caffeine the day of procedure.
- For best results, no sun or tanning prior to procedure.
- For additional comfort, you may choose to take 800 mg of ibuprofen (i.e. Advil or an equivalent store brand) along with an antihistamine such as Benadryl or an equivalent store brand, 30 minutes prior to your appointment.
Additional Guidelines for Eyeliner:
- Bring your glasses.
- Please come to appointment with eyeliner on, but no mascara.
- If you think you will be nervous, twitchy, or reactive to close work around your eyes, you may consider asking your physician for a one time dose of valium. You would of course then need a driver to take you home from the procedure.
- Do not wear your contact lenses (clean contacts can be worn 72 hours after the application of eyeliner).
- Please buy a new tube of mascara to use after all eyeliner applications.
- Have frozen peas purchased.
- I highly recommend using a very lubricating eye drop or ointment after the procedure for three days.
Additional Guidelines for Eyebrows:
- Bring your favorite eyebrow pencil.
- Please come to appointment with brows on.
- If you have magazine photos of brows you like, please bring them.
Additional Guidelines for Lips:
- If you have ever had a fever blister or cold sore in your life, you MUST get a 1000 mg daily prescription for Zovirax, Valtrex or other antiviral medication from your doctor or dentist (Acyclovir is an inexpensive alternative to Valtrex). This must be taken in ORAL form, not cream. There are no exceptions. You will need to start the medication at one to two days prior to your procedure.
- It is very important to moisturize the lips as much as possible, before procedure.
- Bring your favorite lipsticks.
- Please check with your Health Care Provider before taking any medication.
- Valcyclovir is now available generic for Valtrex.
Post-Procedure Care Instructions
- Maintain an extremely thin coat of Vaseline, Vitamin E, Aquaphor, or Bacitracin on the treated area.
- Apply frozen peas in a baggy to the treated area to reduce swelling as often and as soon as possible.
- You may clean the area with ice water and a very small amount of antibacterial soap for the first four days, always reapplying the Vaseline immediately after.
- There is always a chance of infection or reaction to the Vaseline,
always apply new Vaseline with clean hands!
- Avoid touching the area and stay out of any dusty or dirty environments
for 3-4 days.
- Apply BaciTRacin ointment to the treated area only until the second night.
- DO NOT EXPOSE TREATED AREA TO THE SUN!
- After 10 days apply a strong sunscreen to the pigmented area for protection from the sun.
- Prior to facial cleansing, apply treated area with a generous application of Vaseline. DO NOT apply soaps, cleansing creams, or chemicals to the pigmented area for at least 7 days except for a very small amount of antibacterial soap and ice water, as noted above.
- Do NOT soak your face in the shower, hot tub, or chlorinated water for at least 7 days. Chlorine can lighten your permanent makeup.
- Do NOT ever apply Retin-A or any other type of glycolic acids directly to the pigmented area – EVER. Leave at least a 1/4 inch buffer area around your permanent makeup.
- As the TReated area is healing, it may feel exTRemely tight. Use Vaseline, Vitamin E or A&D Ointment continuously to minimize dryness and for protection when washing. It is important to keep the treated area coated in order to prevent scabbing.
- Do NOT ever pick, scratch, or pull at the healing area!
- If it itches, apply Vaseline and gently work into the area in a light circular motion. If you experience increasing redness or itchiness after a few days, discontinue the use of any ointments. You may be reacting to them.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?
Similar to your cosmetic pencil, you may choose soft and natural color or more dramatic and defined. Normal makeup can be applied over it for special occasions.
WHAT DOES PERMANENT MAKEUP COST?
Between two and five hundred dollars per procedure, depending on the work required. Since an eyeliner procedure can last for decades, think of the savings in cosmetic purchases, worry and your valuable time.
DOES PERMANENT MAKEUP HURT?
Permanent makeup is comparable to waxing or plucking! A topical anesthetic is applied to ease any discomfort. Although each client’s tolerance level is different, most will agree that it is more comfortable than anticipated.
IS PERMANENT MAKEUP SAFE?
YES! The procedure is doctor supervised following strict hygiene and sterilization procedures. Following O.S.H.A. guidelines, only single use sterile needles are used with hypoallergenic pigments widely used by cosmetic surgeons.
IS THERE RECOVERY TIME?
Since Micropigmentation is a superficial procedure, there is very little recovery. Some individuals may experience slight swelling or bruising for a day or two.
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Individuals who have:
- An active lifestyle
- Contact lenses or visual impairments
- Hay fever or watery eyes
- Little or no brow hair or light colored hair
- Uneven brows or lips

I had my lip liner done three times before and it never took. Sharon did it one time and my lips look more shapely and full and the color is fantastic! Sharon is an expert in her field and has dramatically changed my appearance for the better.
– Tammy Piepenbrink, Cocoa Beach
I am so happy I had Sharon do my permanent makeup and wish I had done so sooner. I have since referred several other friends to her. We are all pleased with the results.
– Carol Gfeiler, Melbourne
I recently went to Sharon Niles for corrective permanent makeup for my eyebrows because she is well known in the permanent makeup industry.
My eyebrows orignally looked grey in color and the shape was awful. Sharon corrected the color for me and the shape and I was extremely impressed with the difference. She made the shape very natural looking as well as the color. Sharon takes pride in her work and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing corrective work done or getting it done for the first time. My sincere appreciation to her.
– Stacey, Melbourne
I am forever grateful to Sharon for freeing me from the most burdensome daily chore of applying and removing eyeliner. If I had only known that the procedure was truly painless, I would have done it 20 years ago! Her work was so perfect that a followup was not necessary. I also no longer need mascara & there’s no smearing of make-up when my eyes water & itch due to allergies. Because make-up residue is not hanging in the lines around my eyes, I look younger and fresh all day long. I now have more time and much, much less aggravation in my life.
– MaryAnne Gay
I can’t begin to explain how very pleased I am with the outcome of my permanent makeup. I’ve had my brows done before and was not happy with the outcome and thought I was stuck with it forever. Then I met Sharon who fixed it perfectly. I’m now more confident with my appearance and happier than ever.
– Tammy Piepenbrink, Cocoa Beach
