Large Particle Pigments
Larger particles reflect more light and appear more opaque. They are also less susceptible to pigment particle movement, commonly referred to as migration.
Quick to Implant
Large particle pigments are suspended in an aqueous dispersion for better color efficiency. In other words, Premier Concentrated Original Formula Colors yield more color per implant, saving time and touch-up applications.
Premier Concentrated Original Colors are manufactured by a true state-of-the-art process to create pigment dispersions of greater tinctorial strength, brighter, and more true to color than ever before.
Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is Micropigmentation/ Permanent Makeup?
Micropigmentation or Permanent Makeup is long-lasting, but one can still wear fashionable make-up at night or apply makeup for a fresh and natural look for daytime. Micropigmentation or Permanent Makeup simply builds the foundation for looking perfect without looking made-up.
If you feel there is a necessity, after the initial procedure, you may want to return for a touch-up. A touch-up is a colour refresher. Permanent cosmetic makeup can be a process. It is recommended that you wait at least 6 weeks before your touch-up so your initial procedure has time to heal properly. To traumatize the skin sooner can be uncomfortable and doesn’t allow enough time for the pigment to settle in the skin.
A new needle is used for each client. Equipment and supplies are kept in a sanitary manner. Gloves are worn during each procedure and changed often.
Your comfort is very important to me! I take pride in making my clients as comfortable as possible. Most people experience some discomfort likened to a plucking or scouring sensation. This will vary according to each individual’s threshold. Using topical anaesthetics that have been medically developed for permanent makeup application makes procedures reasonably comfortable.
Technically, permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the colour implanted into the skin cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance, colour re-enhancement or refreshing. Just like hair colour, furniture located near a window, or even house paint, the implanted colour will fade over time depending on your health, skin type and how well you care for your skin.
Our Permanent cosmetic procedures are performed using a digital, medical grade machine. Your appointment includes a medical overview and a detailed discussion regarding your expectations including design and colour. The application of the pigment is next. You are a part of the whole process during the procedure. Everything is explained to you with total appreciation that you have chosen me and trust me with your permanent cosmetics.

Permanent Cosmetics can be applied to the eyebrow area in such a way that it looks as if more eyebrow hair is growing, framing and lifting the face. Thin Lips – Lip Liner and Full Lip Color can make shrinking lips look fuller and detract from lines around an aging mouth. It helps rebuild the rim of the lip giving a smoother edge to the lips Little or no lash hair – Eyelash hair also thins with age. Permanent Eyeliner gives eyes the illusion of thicker lashes. Visual impairment / Contact lenses – As women get older their vision diminishes. This makes it hard for them to apply their eyeliner and brows. It can also give them a sense of helplessness.

Permanent Cosmetics allow an older woman to feel assured that her makeup looks good and consistent all the time.
