What is
Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, and cosmetic tattooing is a revolutionary cosmetic technique which involves permanent pigmentation of the dermis. It’s achieved by inserting coloured natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. It produces articulate designs that resemble makeup.

Combo Brows

Combo brows is a combination of two forms of semi-permanent techniques: microblading and powder brows (shading). Microblading hair-strokes are placed with a manual tool around the border of the brow to give the brow a natural look.


Powder Brows

Powder brows is a cosmetic semi permanent makeup technique designed to create eyebrows with soft powder effect, very similar to powder makeup. Powder effect is done with a shading technique using a permanent makeup device, which is similar to a tattoo machine.


Lip Blush

Lip blushing is a type of semipermanent cosmetic tattooing procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your lips using small needles.


Lash Enhancement

Lash enhancement, or invisible eyeliner as it is often called, involves tattooing an ultra-thin black line along the lash line to create the illusion of fuller, darker, thicker lashes.


Eye Liner

Permanent eyeliner involves using a tattooing technique to apply ink along the lashline to create the appearance of eyeliner



As with any PMU procedure, some clients may require additional appointments to achieve their desired look. Please do not expect your brow tattoos to heal perfectly after the first session. Be patient during your 10-day healing period and ensure you are following the post-appointment requirements.


It is important to understand the 10-day healing process is just that, a process. Your brows will change in appearance from day to day. They will first appear very saturated (and you may even think too dark; this stage lasts up to two weeks), then they will likely scab, then you will feel like they have faded, then they will heal into a wonderful powdered brow. 


Do not pick your brows, let any dryness and/or scabbing fall off naturally. If flakes are picked prematurely missing hair stokes will result and cause patchy brows which can lead to scarring. Your brow tattoo will take up to four (4) weeks to completely heal. When the flaking comes off the hair strokes may seem faint this is because a fresh layer of skin has healed over the brow tattoo. Give your brows a few weeks and the hair strokes will become clearer. Colour will continue to change on a daily basis until all healing is complete at the 4-week mark. You may experience itchiness in the brows after the 10 days for up to 2 months due to the healing process of the dermal layer. Not everyone’s hair stroke brows can heal clean and crisp. Hair strokes for oilier skin types tend to heal more solid and powdery while drier skin types tend to heal more crisp and defined. In addition, clients who bleed more tend to require additional touch ups since the blood pushes pigment out during the PMU service. 


I use a topical numbing cream and continue to apply numbing cream throughout the procedure to make sure you're comfortable.


Allow your brows a minimum of four (4) weeks to heal before booking a touch-up. This gives you the time to decide if you require a touch-up appointment. It takes a full 4 weeks for the color to settle. It is your responsibility to book your touch up appointments.

Clients returning for a touch up, whom have visibility neglected to adhere to the post-appointment requirements, and have significant fading may be subject to additional charges. Clients will be advised if such charges are applicable, prior to any service being completed.

Touch ups are typically scheduled within the first three (3) months of the initial appointment. Touch up appointments are used to perfect the brows and add density. This is a process and some clients may need multiple sessions to achieve their desired result. Maintenance appointments are required to maintain desired results. Depending on your skin type, maintenance appointments should be scheduled, on average, every 9 – 24 months.


It is also important to note that all skin types are different. Some client’s skin may have a harder time retaining pigment and may require additional sessions.
