Permanent Make-up

Available at Mississauga Clinic Only

The History

Permanent Make-Up dates back to the start of the 20th century, although its nature was often concealed in the early days. A tattooist by the name of George Burchett, a major developer of the technique in the 1930’s, wrote in his memoirs how beauty salons tattoed women without their knowledge, offering it as a complexion treatment. Vegetable and fruit dyes were injected under the top layer of the client’s skin.


How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?

Micropigmentation can last anywhere from 6 months to 5 years depending on the area being worked on and how the client maintains the skin.

Permanent makeup is not permanent. The skin on the face exfoliates more than the body because the face is exposed to the sun more. The sun is constantly drying out the skin. Skin turnover for babies is every 14 days, teenagers 21-28 days, middle aged 28-42 days and fifty years and up 42-84 days.

Eyebrows can last anywhere between 2-5 years depending on the pigment used, black pigment lasts the longest. Eyebrows will require a touch up every 1.5 years as the colour will start to fade with wear.

Eyeliner can last anywhere between 10-15 years depending on the pigment used, again black pigment has a longer lifespan. Eyeliner will require a touch up every 3-5 years to freshen up the colour.

Lip procedures can last anywhere between 5-8 years. If the client gets fillers in the lip area, that will stretch out the skin and may cause the colour to look lighter. Touch ups every 3-5 years may be required to freshen up the colour.


Can Permanent Make-Up be Painful?

The area can be numbed using a topical anesthetic. If the anesthetic is left long enough on the skin, then the procedure should not be too uncomfortable. The client may still experience some discomfort due to the vibration of the machine, but the discomfort is bearable. Everyone has a different pain tolerance, some clients may not feel any pain. If you feel you have a low pain threshold just take some time and take deep breaths in and out.


Number of Treatments

Anyone looking to enhance their natural features or cut down on their daily makeup application time can benefit from permanent cosmetics. It is an excellent way to refresh your current look and regain a more youthful appearance. Permanent makeup is ideal for those with the following:

  • People with seasonal allergies
  • People with makeup allergies
  • Poor vision
  • People who wear contact lenses
  • Shady hands (Arthritis, Parkinson’s Diseas, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke survivors)
  • People who are active daily (sports, gyms, swimming, athletes)
  • People with a busy schedule

How Long Does Each Procedure Take?

Most procedures take anywhere from one hour to an hour and a half. It is very important to spend ample time on the artwork so that the client can see exactly what their end result will be. The numbing cream takes about half an hour to numb the area before starting the procedure.

Eyebrows and eyeliner can take anywhere between 1-2 hours including the artwork and freezing.

Lips can take anywhere between 1-2.5 hours depending on the size of the lips, freezing and artwork.

La Unique is literally the best option for laser hair removal! Their affordable packages allow everyone, no matter their budget to receive the laser they need to change their lives! No more painful waxing or threading! They also make it a point to offer the latest beauty facials or treatments hot in the makers. The staff, including the receptionist and office manager are all very friendly and welcoming. They have many customers who are coming in and out throughout the day and they do a great job of managing the flow! I know I can be in and out and get on with my other daily activities. I always say customer service goes a long way and the culture the owner Rita has developed is noteworthy. I think things would be even better if many of the customers could make sure they came in on time (including myself sometimes). I know the staff is very understanding but it must make things difficult when there are unexplained no shows or excessive lateness. Anyways, this is my laser place for life! I always recommend anyone and everyone to La Unique. Hope this helps if you’re considering them! Cheers.*
