SERVICES

**Prices for eyebrows services vary per artist, see the Artists section for details**

 

Microblading

*prices vary per artist

Microblading is a cosmetic procedure that is less permanent than traditional cosmetic tattooing. The results typically last 1-3 years, depending on your skin type and skincare routine.

A hand tool with super fine needles is used for the procedure. After carefully measuring to determine placement and shape, each ‘hair’ stroke is gently etched into the skin. The pigment is chosen to match the natural or desired brow colour, taking into consideration skin tone. The result is an incredibly natural, realistic set of brows.

Microblading is perfect for anyone wanting to enhance their brows. Whether you have little to no brow, thinning or over-plucked brows, the results are beautifully realistic.


Semi permanent procedure that’s done by Shading of the brow area with a machine and a few very thin needles to create a shaded in / soft makeup effect. It’s ideal for any skin type but works very well on oilier skin and combination skin . Powder brows can be made to look more dramatic or very subtle , it depends on the clients needs and what we decide on during the consultation 

Ombré / Powder brows

*prices vary per artist


Combo brows / Microblading and shading 

*prices vary per artist

 Is a combination of Microblading with machine shading in between the Microbladed strokes to create the illusion of hair density and fullness/ darkness  in the brow 


Nano brows - Demi permanent procedure , nano brows are still “hair like strokes “ but they are done with a hand held machine with a single flexible “nano”  needle ,  it’s ideal for everybody but even more so for oilier skin types because it creates less trauma to the epidermis due to the thinness of the needle itself. Nano brows will give you a more structured bolder look while maintaining “hair like “ strokes .

Nano Brows

$650 *with Yael only


Lip Blush

$500

Lip blush - a Semi permanent lip tattoo technique created by tattooing color on to your lips that is sheer, and nothing like the “lipstick” look of past years. Think of it as your lip color, but subtly enhanced by a translucent layer of pigment . Your lips will have a fresh, healthier appearance.


This technique involves creating a very soft and subtle outline of your lips with a lip color that best suits your skin coloring and desired look. This soft line is then blended and shaded when filling in your lips with the pigment. By doing this, we are avoiding the “lined lip” look, and therefore creating the illusion of fuller, natural looking lips.
Think of it as a lip blush that stays on and will keep your lips looking enhanced 


Lash Lift & Tint

$100

Info/description: A beautiful way to enhance your eyes, giving them that extra "pop". This service will lift the lashes, and includes a complimentary upper lash tint as well as an additional deep conditioning treatment that strengthens the natural lash and encourages extended growth. Results last 8-12 weeks

** Please note: Pregnant or breastfeeding women must provide a physician’s note prior to their appointment. People arriving for their lash lift appointment must not be wearing contacts or have mascara on. Not suitable for individuals with excessively watery eyes. 


Permanent eye liner is an easy way to wake up in the morning and be ready to go, one less thing to do! With permanent liner you go for a fine line that perfectly hugs your lash line and enhances your eye shape. Or you can go for a lash enhancement, A lash enhancement is made by creating small dots between every lash to give you a fuller lash look or a tight line eyeliner look.

Eyeliner Tattoo

$500


Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling RF or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles.

Microneedling

$300


Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka: peach fuzz).

Dermaplaning

$95


Phi Carbon Facials are performed by applying a special charcoal gel to the face, which is then activated with the use of the Phi Laser. The carbon in the gel traps impurities and dirt, while the Phi Laser light effectively tightens skin, minimizes pores, slows excess oil production, and speeds up cell regeneration. This service is fantastic for those with acne, oily skin, congested pores, dull complexion, and aging skin. Packages are available for this service to obtain maximum results.

Carbon Facial

Single: $200

Package of 3: $175/session

Package of 5:$150/session


Our Phi Laser effectively breaks up pigment in the skin, using custom frequencies based on the needs of the client. After a laser removal session, our lymphatic system works to flush the pigment molecules out of the skin. Results can be seen approximately 3 weeks post-session, as the body continues to break down the colour. Custom packages may be discussed. A consultation with Christina our laser tech, is a requirement for this service.

Laser Tattoo Removal

$250+ *consultation required


With the use of a machine and a very fine needle, freckles are dotted into the skin using the most natural placement and pigment colours. *Not appropriate for all skin types, please email a photo of your skin prior to booking.

Tattooed Freckles
$275 *Yael only


Saline removal is used in certain cases where the pigment used on the brows to be removed contains certain metals that our PhiLaser doesn’t agree with. Brows that have turned a red, burgundy, or purple tone over time benefit from this removal technique.
A machine is used to deposit a sterile saline solution into the brow that is specifically formulated for removal. The solution breaks up the pigment, which is then pushed to the skin’s surface and sits within the scab that forms and then sheds.
*Please email us a photo of the area, or book a consultation, prior to booking this service

Saline Removal
$275


This removal technique uses glycolic acid to break up the pigment within the skin. This method is very similar to, but a bit more intensive than saline removal, which is necessary for some permanent makeup removals. 

*Please email us a photo of the area, or book a consultation, prior to booking this service

PhiRemoval
$180

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is Microblading?

Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine.  The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each ‘hair’ is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over-tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.


Am I a good candidate

for Microblading?

I’d be happy to consult with you to determine if you are a good candidate for microblading. However, I cannot perform the procedure on those that are: pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic, taking blood thinning medication, or have an autoimmune disorder, or have recently completed chemotherapy.

You may not be a good candidate for microblading if:

  • there is psoriasis/dermatitis, eczema, keratosis pilaris, chronic acne, rosacea (mild cases can be okay) on and around the brow area

  • you are diabetic *Doctor's note required

  • I have epilepsy

  • you are prone to keloids

  • you have previous microblading or permanent makeup

  • you have a heart condition

  • you have taken Accutane in the last year

  • you are taking antibiotics

Please email or call for more information, and to discuss whether you should book a consultation before your microblading appointment.


How long does Microblading take?

For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 1.5 – 2.5 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection.  Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure.

The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Microblading session takes place within 8 weeks of the initial session. This session will take approximately 30 – 45 minutes to complete.


How long does it take

to heal?

The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40%-60% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure.  It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You’ll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.


Does Microblading hurt?

The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none.  Prior to the procedure your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and also reapplied during the procedure.  Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine.

After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal.  Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn.  Clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.


How long does it last?

Since microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime.  Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan, uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid with fade faster as your skin will resurface faster. Each individual’s color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months. Clients can let the microbladed area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain.


What are the PRE CARE INSTRUCTIONS?

7 Days Before Your Appointment:
Discontinue the following (until after your appointment):
-facial acids: retinols, retinoids, glycolic, any exfoliating acids
-multivitamins, vitamins c & e, turmeric, ginger, fish oils (you may continue with iron supplements)

-antibiotics (please contact us immediately if currently on antibiotics, 14 day window required between last dose and your appointment)
-tanning beds

48 Hours Prior To Your Appointment:
Discontinue the following (until after your appointment):
-anti-inflammatories (Advil, ibuprofen, naproxen, Aspirin) **Tylenol is OK
-alcoholic beverages

Day Of Your Appointment:
Discontinue the following (until after your appointment):
-CAFFEINE (coffee, DECAF, caffeinated teas, Coke, Diet Coke, chocolate)
*please lightly exfoliate the brow area the morning of your appointment

IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUS PERMANENT MAKEUP/MICROBLADING, YOU MUST CONTACT US ASAP. We cannot work with all existing permanent makeup. If you do not inform us prior to your appointment, it may result in cancellation of your appointment and a 25% CHARGE.

A Doctors note is required for the following:
-anyone with an existing cancer diagnosis
-Diabetes (types 1 & 2)

These instructions are ESSENTIAL to follow. They are intended to avoid thinning of the blood, which causes bleeding. In turn this causes pigment to be pushed out of the skin leaving you with imperfect, unideal results. We want you to leave with the best brows possible!
(*END of pre care)


Do I need a consultation?

In most cases, no. Consultation is part of your regular microblading appointment. However, if you have had previous microblading or permanent makeup, skin issues, scar tissues, or medical issues requiring discussion, a separate consultation may be needed. Please contact me directly with any questions.


What is the difference between microblading and shading?

Manual shading is a different technique of depositing pigment into the skin by a hand tool and a needle. It gives an illusion of a “fuller”, more “powdered “ or “coloured in” brow, and helps blend areas with very little hair to areas that have thick dense hair.


How do I know if I need shading or not?

We can decide on it together and add the service the day of your appointment.


Do you keep a cancelation list?

Unfortunately, I do not have a cancelation list. As my client, you are able to cancel and rebook your appointments online yourself (as long it’s not within the 48 hours of your original slot). I unfortunately can’t keep track of all my activity online which is why I allow for a “first come first serve” booking. Cancellations do come up so going on line often and checking will be your best bet.

** Having said that, please note: Yael has currently frozen her books. However, we will be opening up her calendar for July on April 1st, and subsequently on the 1st of every month we will be opening her calendar for August, September, and so on.
