What is permanent makeup?
Micro pigmentation is the art and science of implanting color into the upper dermal layer of the skin.
The specialized techniques, state-of-the art equipment, high quality hypoallergenic pigments, medical grade topical anaesthetics let micro pigmentation professionals create the ideas that all women and men can benefit from.
There is no upper age limit on permanent make up. You can sleep, swim, perspire, wash your face and your makeup remains in place. Permanent makeup lasts up to 5 years, often longer.
It is recommended to boost the color every 1-3 years to maintain color freshness. Micro pigmentation is a very safe procedure, if it is done by an experienced and responsible artist. In accordance with Safety Standards only disposable sterile needles and supplies are used for each procedure that is conducted in a professional sanitary environment.
How to choose the right technician
So many bad cases of improperly done permanent makeup pass through my hands, that I want to strongly advise to be very careful and spend a plenty amount of time researching to make a right decision.
The first things you have to ask about:
Licence- Ontario laws state, that you have to be licensed in order to perform permanent makeup or tattooing. Educational and advanced training certificates – It is not possible to perform a good quality micropigmentation procedure without having completed advanced courses. Safety- the first thing you have to see when you enter to the premises is the Body Safe Pass Sign, which is issued by Toronto Public Health once the Personal Service Settings meet the standards of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s Infection Prevention and Control. Portfolio - is a proof of experience, professional and artistic skills , which every artist should be able to demonstrate.
Equipment and products
Permanent makeup procedure is performed with the use of different devices- machines and manual tools. Choosing a device to work with is a matter of experience, knowledge and personal preferences of the technician. I tried and tested many machines and continue to do so, but as of now I can say, that the best ones I used are “Nouveau Contour”, which I’ve been using for the past few years. The digital control unit assures a stable needle frequency that allows the most control and precision of application with flawless results. A patented Safety Needle Cartridge System works to prevent any possibility of cross contamination.
The most recent addition to my inventory, which I was impressed with is the flagship device ORON57, which integrates permanent makeup techniques and hair follicles simulation in one machine. It was invented by the NPM Company, a proud pioneer in the field of revolutionary hi-tech products developed in Israel. The machine comes with a fine line of cartridge needles, is unique in structure, varying in configurations and enables to perform fast and easy injection of the pigment into the skin to achieve perfect results that last a long time.
The integrated micropigmentation device features a roller consisting of a wheel of needles and a spring system, which can be quickly and easily rolled over your scalp to create an illusion of real hair follicles. The development met the needs of both men and women to improve their appearance and self confidence. The roller and needles are used only one time and are sterile.
NPM’s devices, accessories and pigments are manufactured in accordance with strict quality international standards and are officially recognized by medical authorities in Europe CE-NPMSAF-18837C.
The big range of colors especially designed for lips, eyeliner/eye shadow, eyebrows, hair follicles simulation, skin camouflage and areola procedures are always custom-blended to match different skin tones. As an expert in colour analysis and makeovers, I artistically choose the exact color and design that suit you best and harmonize with your personality.
I use high quality medical grade topical anaesthetics, which ensure the maximum comfort during the procedure.
In accordance with Safety Standards and Public Health Guidelines only brand new disposable sterile sealed needles, single used supplies, protection barrier film, surgical gloves and masks are used for each procedure that conducts in a professional sanitary environment.
My premises successfully pass through Toronto Public Health Inspection Control on a regular basis and all the time get their Body Safe Pass Sign, which is you can see in my room among my many certificates.
