How long with it last?

Permanent makeup is long-lasting and will slowly fade over time. As you become accustomed to your makeup it’s not uncommon to want more. To keep your makeup looking it’s best, you should refresh it every couple of years. The darker the color, such as black, the longer it will last. Natural, delicate colors are more vulnerable to the effects of sun, swimming and breakdown by the body.

Is it safe?

Yes. The strictest sanitation and safety standards are followed by using only single-use needles and parts. Also, hypo-allergenic pigments containing no fragrances, emollients or other irritants are used during the procedure.

How will I look immediately after?

The color will look darker and more defined for the first week. After one week, the intensity will soften as the pigment heals into the skin, about 40%. Detailed aftercare instructions and ointment are provided.

Does it hurt?

Topical anesthetics may be used during the procedure. The anesthetic is applied to the area before and during the procedure to assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. Some people describe the sensation as a “scratching” feeling. It is common to hear that there was not as much pain as was expected.

How is it done?

First, Melissa will carefully analyze your features and pinpoint enhancements that will compliment you. Maybe your eyebrows are too low, causing your eyes to look droopy. Maybe you’re not applying you eyeliner properly. Regardless of your situation, she will show you how to achieve a complimentary look, as well as know what your concerns and needs may be. As a professionally trained colour analyst, Melissa will advise you on the most appropriate colors to compliment your skin and hair tone. Using cosmetic pencils, she will create a variety of designs to allow you to visualize the end results. Once you are happy with the proposed design, Melissa will apply the permanent cosmetics. Each procedure takes 1-2 hours.
