Permanent Cosmetics

Permanent cosmetics is a form of tattooing that works to eliminate the need for daily makeup application and enhance a client’s natural beauty. It can last anywhere between 1 – 5 years depending on the area treated and can either be customized in a natural or more dramatic form.

It short, no, it does not hurt. Some people compare the sensation to a light sunburn, but most feel nothing at all. We always strive to ensure your comfort, and so we apply a very effective numbing cream prior to and during the procedure.

Here are few tips to get you ready for your appointment:

  • 24 hours prior to your appointment, DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL or CAFFEINE.
  • 72 hours prior to your appointment, DO NOT TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Niacin or Vitamin E unless medically necessary.
  • Botox and fillers should be done 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the procedure.
  • Avoid booking during your menstrual cycle as it can increase your pain.
  • No waxing, tanning or tinting 3 days before.
  • Be prepared for your procedural area to look a little red and really dark! – don’t worry, they will fade in color 30-50% over the next few days.
  • If you traditionally wear makeup on the area, come in with it on! It will give us an idea of the shape and colour you prefer. We will however choose the final design together and ensure the most flattering results.

Glad you asked! Each treated area requires something a little different from the other to ensure their longevity. Most are low-maintenance, but each client receives and in-depth brochure on how to care for their permanent cosmetics immediately after their appointment and well into the future.

If you would like specific details please call us at 905-818-2885 and we’d be happy to help.

With proper after care, and depending on your skin type, results can last between 1-5 years. For brows however, most clients enjoy returning for a yearly touch-up to keep their colour and hair strokes looking like new.

Lashes

Great question! It’s a technique that attaches one synthetic mink eyelash to one natural eyelash using a hypoallergenic medical-grade adhesive. It can last between 2 – 4 weeks depending on each individual’s natural lash cycle and with the proper care. The final product will leave you looking like a bombshell! Best part is you can shower, swim, tan and live your life without having to worry about applying mascara or it washing away.

Here are a few tips to get you ready for your appointment: 

First, we recommend that you avoid any eye makeup and do not curl your lashes at least two days prior to your visit. Be sure to give them a good cleaning on the day of!

Second, arrive to your appointment on time so that we can ensure your lashes get all the attention they deserve.

Third, prepare to be wowed by the results!

Glad you asked! Caring for your new lashes is the most important step to keeping them healthy and strong. Here’s what we recommend:

Make sure you gently cleanse them at least every other day.

Brush them with your complimentary mascara wand daily. 

Do not pull, tug or rub your lashes.

Ensure that any products used around the eyes are oil-free, including makeup.

No eyelash curlers ladies! You won’t need them anyway.

Do not sleep on them directly.

Take care when opening the oven door. We don’t want the lashes to melt!

Traditional eyelash adhesive dictates that you should wait at least 24 hours before getting your new lashes wet. This will ensure a strong bond, so avoid the shower, pool and Jacuzzi, and steam until then. Your lashes will thank you.

Ladies, we shed about 2-5 lashes per day, which amounts to approximately 14-35 per week! Since your extensions are carefully bonded to your natural lash, they will shed together, and this can leave gaps in your glamorous full set. That’s why it’s recommended you return within 2-4 weeks so that we can fill them up again and keep you looking flirty!

A lash lift is a zero-maintenance treatment that allows the lashes to be gently lifted from the base to give the perfect curl and the appearance of added length. It takes only an hour to complete and results last on average between 6-8 weeks.
