What is PMU?

Permanent Makeup is a cosmetic technique used to implant pigment into the dermal layer of the skin to resemble real makeup which lasts longer, does not smear or rub off, and looks flawless at all times.

Who gets PMU?

Permanent makeup is suitable for almost everyone. Both men and women want to look their best at all times, people may be allergic to normal makeup, and if you’re active then permanent makeup is waterproof and will not smear or sweat off of you. Permanent makeup is also a solution to those seeking to hide imperfections or mask/camouflage scars through the art of micro-pigmentation. It is not just about having perfect makeup on though. It’s also about the overall convenience and time saved for years to come.

Is this the same as microblading?

We do not do microblading because it is more outdated, invasive, painful, and leads to inferior results. In fact, many people come to us to have their poorly microblade eyebrows fixed. Microblading creates small cuts on the skin where pigment is then implanted. Instead, we use a nano needle that is much finer, makes no cuts on the skin, and uses a completely different technique to simulate actual realistic hair strokes.

Is PMU safe?

Yes, all of our technicians are not only licensed but carefully monitored for their work to ensure that their skills and techniques are all to standard and up to date. We only work with sterile equipment and sanitation is important to us. Aesthetics Health strictly follows all safety and health regulations within its operating vicinity.

Is it really permanent?

Most procedures will last anywhere from 1-to 3 years depending on skin type, lifestyle, and self-care. Permanent makeup procedures will fade over time and require touch-ups to maintain the color and shade that you want.

What’s the difference between PMU and tattoos?

The idea is similar in the sense that pigment is implanted with a needle but the pigment and techniques used are completely different.

How long does each procedure typically take?

You should expect 2-3 hours for your first appointment. This will include time to get you comfortable, give you consultation, map your brows if required, and allow time for numbing and the actual procedure itself.

Is there anything I shouldn’t do prior to my appointment?

Please abstain from aspirin, any blood thinner, all forms of caffeine, and alcohol 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.

How do I know which style is best for me?

Please abstain from aspirin, any blood thinner, all forms of caffeine, and alcohol 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.

Does PMU hurt?

Topical numbing cream is applied so most clients feel fine and completely comfortable. If you happen to experience any discomfort though, please let your technician know and we can take a short break or work with you in whatever way in order to continue to the procedure.

How long does it take to get the end result?

Although your procedure will be finished the very day you step foot in the door but the true results that you seek require your skin to heal first. (Between 4-8 weeks) Therefore, you can expect your brows to look slightly different week by week depending on what stage of healing it is at.

Can I change what service I want after my appointment is already booked?

Yes of course! Just please note that there are different prices depending on the service. You are also welcome to add on more services but availability will be schedule-dependent.
