Service Recommendations:

 When scheduling an appointment date for a semi permanent makeup procedure, you will need 14 days for the treated area to completely heal. It is recommended to have two to three days of down time directly after the procedure. Please keep in mind when booking not make any social plans directly after appointment. If you are planning a hot holiday or vacation, please be aware that your semi permanent makeup needs to heal before jetting off on your holiday. Please plan your application appointment at least 2 weeks before your holiday. Also to make sure that you wear SPF on your treatment area during your vacation because the sun does cause micro-pigmentation to fade faster. When you return, please wait at least 2 weeks for your skin to accustom to our climate again before having a microblading application.

  Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your treatment time to complete a waiver form and go over the aftercare card. Late arrivals can lead to your treatment being postponed to avoid upsetting other clients who may be waiting for their appointments after yours. Please allow the required time for each service. This is not something that can be rushed. If you prefer a certain makeup colour for lips, brows or liner, please bring your makeup to provide a better understanding of what your looking for. 

POST CARE

Please avoid the following after treatment for the next 10 to 14 days: 

  • Scented soaps and lotions

  • Saunas 

  • Hot yoga

  • Sleeping on your stomach or side (if treatment area is sore)

  • Facial Massage 

  • SPF (until fully healed)

  • Coconut Oil

  • Petroleum or Vaseline

  • Heavy sweating at the gym (sweat formed on treatment area can fade your healing colour)

  • Tanning

  • Makeup on brow area until fully healed

  • Picking a scabs if any appear

  • Swimming (pool chemicals can erode healing colour)

  • Outdoor activities such as gardening or golf can be resumed as long as treatment area remains clean, dry and out of the sun

  • There will be a little scabbing. Please do not itch the procedure area or pull any scabs away.

  Permanent makeup will appear extremely intense and thick immediately after the procedure. The colour will appear darker for the first few days. You may experience some swelling and minor bruising.  As swelling goes down the lines will become thinner. Colours will continue to soften and stabilize over the next few weeks. The true colour can take up to 4 weeks from initial treatment to come through. It will look very natural once healed. 

 

  In the first 30 to 60 minutes after the procedure, gently cleanse area with cotton rounds that are slightly damp with cool water. Follow with the aftercare ointment that will be provided to you. Apply ointment with a clean Q-tip. Use patting motions only. Avoid rubbing. Repeat this process 3 to 5 times a day for 14 days. During the healing process, the colour may seem to disappear as it is obscured by the healing skin. Flaking, crusting and itching may also occur as the skin starts the natural healing process. Picking or peeling any flakes can cause loss of implanted pigment and scarring. Refrain from touching the treatment area except when cleaning, applying oil or ointment.

 

  To achieve the desired colour, two applications will be needed. Please schedule second appointment approximately 6 to 8 weeks after the initial procedure. Touch up cost is not including in original pricing. Micro-pigmentation or semi permanent makeup can last for 3 to 4 years depending on colour, individual body chemistry and lifestyle.  ​A colour boost appointment are recommended for those who wish to keep their makeup like enhancements looking as fresh as possible. Different pricing is in place for a colour boost. Pricing depends on the duration of time from the original appointment and are individual assessed.
