Cosmetic Tatooing (Permanent Makeup)

 

Permanent Makeup is ideal for people with fair features, people who are allergic to makeup or people looking to save time when getting ready. 

These procedures are fast, simple and done with very limited discomfort. We use topical anesthetic before each procedure, and use more anesthetic throughout to minimize pain for each client.

1. Overview
 

Leah Grandmaison

Permanent Makeup Artist

Permanent makeup is performed by Leah Grandmaison in our clinic. Andrea has been fully certified in Medical & Cosmetic tattooing, as well as Skin Revisions using the needling technique and heat therapy machine.

Permanent Makeup for Lips is ideal for clients with very thin, pale, or uneven lips. We can restore symmetry and bring colour to the lips.

2. Lips and Lip Liner
3. Needle Dermabrasion

This is done using the tattoo machine without pigment. It creates dermal damage by making multiple shallow punctures through the skin. Collagen and elasticity is stimulated and helps to smooth and correct scars, deep wrinkles and acne pits.

4. Colour and Shape Correction

Cosmetic tattooing can be used to correct faded or to correct the shape of permanent makeup. You will often see tattoos that have turned blue or orange. This can be fixed.

5. Eyeliner

The eyeliner procedure adds pigment close to the lash line to give the illusion of a thicker fuller lash and also helps to define the eye. We can create a natural looking fine line or a darker, dramatic line.

6. Eyebrows

Permanent Makeup can be used to darken the colour and define a client’s existing brows. It can also replace eyebrows that have lost hair with age, over plucking, injury or hair loss.

If you have extremely fair hair that makes lashes nearly invisible or your eyebrows are a different color than your hair is, you may be the perfect candidate for eyelash and eyebrow tinting. Likewise if you’re tired of runny mascara or if you’re finally noticing grays sprouting in your brows.

7. Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting
8. Preoperative Considerations

Bring any makeup (pencils, liners, shadows or powders) that you are currently using to draw in your eyebrows, lips or eyeliner. Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before and after procedure Avoid Advil or Aspirin for 24 hours before and after procedure Please let us know if you are susceptible to infections.

After a procedure, there is always a small amount of swelling. After having eyeliner done, you should expect to have swollen eyes for 2 days after the procedure. After all procedures, you should avoid wearing makeup on the treated area for 3 days. If you are considering having your lips done, please let us know if you have ever had a cold sore. The tattoos can look quite dark for the first 3-5 days and will fade over time.
