Permanent Make-Up

Permanent Make-up, is a procedure applyling pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. This state of the art procedure has been performed for a variety of make-up enhancements at Sheila's Day Spa and Laser Centre for over 16 years. Cosmetic tatooing can offer subtle encouragement and enhances lip liner and lip color, upper and lower eyeliners, and eyebrows. In more recent years, this technique has been used to perform camouflage therapy such as creating the illusion of areolas and nipple restoration, vitiligo, hypo-pigmentation, and hairline scars.

 

Permanent Make-Up

How is it Done?  
Sheila's Day Spa and Laser Centre uses a state-of-the-art, Swedish permanent make-up system. Sterilized, disposable needles are used to implant desired color into the dermis layer.   

Is it painful?
Highly effective topical anesthetics are applied to the area to numb and provide comfort to ensure a perfect procedure. Depending on which anesthetics are used, generally there is minimal, if any, discomfort.

Will I need a patch test?
A patch test may be performed at the time fo the digital skin assessment to assess for allergies and/or color match. This patch test is simple and is done either on the scalp, behind the ear, or directly over the area to be tattooed if color matching is in question. This will help ensure that their is no allergic reaction to the product.

What is involved in the healing and post-treatment care?
There is some redness and slight swelling immediately following the procedure. This disappears quickly after the procedure. Applying ice is helpful for some people. Applying Polysporin or petroleum jelly for 5-7 days after the procedure is critical to keep the area moist. Products are supplied with the procedure.

Will I need more than one appointment?
Yes, the second appointment will perfect and detail the final look. As the years pass(5-10 years), re-enhancements or maintenance may be desired for some people.

What is the pigment composed of?
Pigments are made of mineral, ironoxide-based colorants. These colorants and dispersing solutions are FDA, Food, Drug, and Cosmetic approved.

Who performs these procdures?
Trained and qualified micro-pigment technicians will consult and review your best choice of colors and shape.

Lip Liner

A lip liner not only defines the existing lip line, but may also augment the size or camouflage any scars, such as hair lips. Lip augmentation appears to increase the size and fullness of the natural lip line. Loss of natural lip color through the aging process benefits dramatically from this procedure. $500

Eye Liner

An eyeliner procedure defines the lash line and enhances your eye shape. Thickness and color may vary according to a client's request. Pigment is implanted close tot he lash line to ensure a natural appearance. Single liner, lower or upper, $450. Upper and lower set is $750.

Eyebrows

If you use a pencil to define your eyebrows, permanent eybrows would certainly rid you of that burden. Keep your eyebrows during swimming, exercise, and while you sleep. And eyebrow procedure may take on the appearance of simulated hair stroks or a very light shading of color underneath existing light, sparse, eyebrow hairs. $350 and up, depending on the size and desired appearance of the brows.
