Permanent Makeup

For women who are looking to either define their natural features or to minimize the appearance of scarring and pigmentation, cosmetic tattooing (or permanent makeup) is an ideal solution to ensure you always look your best.

At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, we specialize in providing our clients with world-class, professional and artistic tattoo makeup services. 

Ideal For:
  • The busy professional who wants to save time.
  • Patients who may have difficulty applying makeup due to physical limitations such as vision loss or age.
  • People with allergies to traditional cosmetics.
  • Active patients who do not want their makeup ‘sweating off.’
  • Those with faint or partial eyebrows.
  • Skin/Scar camoflouge.
  • Nipple/Areola re-pigmentation after breast reconstruction. 

Our skilled and artistic estheticians are committed to providing cosmetic tattoos that are the embodiment of our client’s tastes and preferences, giving you a natural and vibrant look that enhances your unique beauty.

Tattoo makeup treatment is a procedure of implanting colored pigment into the skin in order to create the desired cosmetic effect, whether you are seeking to camouflage imperfections such as scarring or to simply want to look great all day, every day. 

Benefits
  • Quick and effective treatment times
  • Natural, immediate results
  • No downtime required
  • Saves you time
  • Improved physical appearance

It is important to note that although it is called permanent makeup treatment, cosmetic tattoos are in fact semi-permanent. While they will not wash off, they will soften and fade over time and will need to be redone every 1-3 years depending on your skin tone and the depth of color used.

Tattoo makeup is an ideal solution for beautifying:
  • Eyebrows: we offer customized shaping, natural looking hair strokes and facial balance and design.
  • Eyeliner: Our skilled estheticians are able to provide you with permanent eyeliner that is soft and subtle and which accentuates the unique shape of your eyes.
  • Lips: We can create a fuller, more defined lip shape for that voluminous pout you have always wanted.
Medical tattoos are available for:
  • Camouflaging scars and other visible skin pigmentation
  • Rectifying patchy baldness
  • Areola design after a breast reconstruction surgery

At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, our trained estheticians are dedicated to treating your cosmetic tattoos with artistic care and meticulous attention to detail, giving you a natural, youthful and more vibrant appearance.

Permanent Makeup FAQ

How does a cosmetic tattoo treatment work?

Permanent makeup works by implanting color pigment into your skin, making it appear to be like every day makeup. It can be used for areas of the face such as your eyebrows, lips and eyeliner. The entire process includes a consultation, the application of pigment and at least one or more follow up visits so that we can evaluate the healed design work and the color of the pigment.

Will I experience pain while getting my cosmetic tattoo?

While the level of pain experienced varies according to each individual’s pain threshold, topical anesthetics are used to numb the area being treated and minimize any discomfort. The most pain that may be experienced could be described as a mild pricking or a stinging sensation.

What can I do to prepare for my cosmetic tattoo treatment?

Precautions will vary depending on which treatment you are opting for. If you are receiving permanent eyeliner, you should not wear your contact lenses to the appointment. Also, following an eyeliner procedure, you should plan on wearing your glasses for approximately 5 days following the treatment. Prior to getting your cosmetic tattoo, it is recommended that for 1-2 days before your procedure, you abstain from:

  • alcoholic beverages
  • spicy foods
  • blood thinners (e.g. aspirin)

What can I expect from my cosmetic tattoo treatment?

After treatment the area of application may be slightly tender, red and/or swollen. This will generally disappear within a few days. The color of the application may also appear rather dark at first, but the color will lighten to a more natural tone in the following weeks for results lasting up to 3 years.
