Semi-Permanent Makeup

Semi-permanent makeup refers to the procedure of adding colour pigments to the skin to enhance features or to give the appearance of wearing makeup. This is usually done by adding colour pigments to the top layers of the skin, thereby reducing the lifespan of the treatment when compared to permanent makeup. Popular semi-permanent procedures include microblading and microshading.  Please note that oily skin may require more frequent touch ups than dry skin, as the colour disintegrates more quickly with the former.

This is an attractive option for many people who have experienced hair loss as a result of an illness, a chronic condition, old age, for those who wish to cut down on their morning routine or who want to alter the shape of their eyebrows without having to pencil them in daily.


This is an artform in itself, requiring specialized skills and a solid artistic ability to draw. This procedure is to enhance the look of your eyebrows by filling them in and shaping them, according to the needs of the client, without damaging your natural eyebrows. Often, clients choose to go a little darker than their natural colour, but there is a range of colours from which to choose. It involves cutting through the top layers of the skin to implant colour pigments in the cuts with a tool containing multiple blades. This requires hundreds of tiny strokes applied in the right direction, and when done by the right expert, it can involve adding shade to those lines to provide the appearance of natural eyebrows.

At Danick Beauty Bar, we want to ensure your satisfaction. To that end, we double check the outline of your new brow for symmetry with the Phi app. We only use the highest quality products in a sanitary environment to avoid the spread of bacteria and reduce the possibility for infection. Immediately prior to the start of the procedure, we show our client their new, sealed blade, then open it on the spot to ensure that it has not come into contact with anything or anyone.


Unlike the full strokes required for microblading, microshading is the process of adding small points throughout the eyebrow to create the impression of a fuller, powdered brow, using a fine-tipped needle. Some clients like to combine the two methods to achieve the right look.

Each procedure take approximately 2 hours (but that will vary based on the needs of the client), involves minimal pain (though this can vary based on the client and the use of a numbing agent is offered), and takes approximately 2 weeks to fully heal. Most people will require a follow up 6 weeks after the initial procedure to finalize the eyebrows and add the necessary corrections. Keep in mind that eyebrows will appear wider and darker during the healing process. Since you cannot have your brows waxed or threaded for at least ten days following the procedure, we recommend that any hair removal be done the day before. It is recommended that clients avoid letting their eyebrows come into contact with water or oily products for the first 72 hours. The results typically last between 6 to 18 months.

Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup, most commonly known as cosmetic tattooing (amongst other monikers), is the art of applying permanent colour pigments to the skin to create a look that resembles makeup. It can be applied to the brows, the eyes, the lips, the cheeks… basically anywhere you would apply makeup. As the name suggests, the pigments are applied permanently and most will remain under the layers of the skin, though touch-ups will become necessary as the colour fades with time. Depending on the skin type and the location to which it is applied, a client may need a couple of touch-ups after the initial application.

The length of time for each procedure will vary based on the needs of the client and the specific location of the cosmetic tattoo. A local anesthetic is usually applied, but the procedure involves some pain. The tattoo must be kept moisturized for several days as the area will swell. The colour will appear darker and will crust before it begins to heal, much like a regular tattoo.

The Healing Process

During the first 1 to 3 days, your brows will appear darker and bolder. Then they will begin to lighten up and flake off for a couple of days. By the end of the first week, your eyebrows will begin to look natural and will have faded by approximately 50%, whereas lips and eyeliner will achieve that within three days of the procedure.

After Care

You will be provided with an aftercare cosmetic tattoo ointment, which you are encouraged to apply 2 to 3 times a day for a period of one week. You must keep the area clean, but you must not scrub or remove the scab. During the first week after the procedure, you should avoid swimming, steam rooms/saunas, or direct sunlight. If you have to be outdoors and/or under the sun, you are strongly recommended to wear a hat. For best results, you should not wear makeup in the area of the procedure for approximately 5 days, and can use a cold compress to help reduce inflammation.
