Permanent Makeup, also known as micropigmentation, is a method of inserting small amounts of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin in order to enhance facial features such as eyebrows, eyes, lips, and provide scar camouflage. It helps to replenish what time has taken away, gives back precious time you normally spend “putting on your face". It is also helpful to those who are allergic to conventional cosmetics, those with visual impairment, watery eyes, and those with unsteady or arthritic hands that have difficulty applying makeup.
You will receive a consultation to determine the colour and shape of the permanent makeup you desire. Factors such as your makeup style, skin tone, hair colour, and desired outcome will be considered to determine the design of the permanent makeup that will be most flattering and suitable for you.
Every cosmetic skin procedure involves a very small degree of risk and, although exceedingly uncommon, it is important that you understand and accept the rare risks involved with Permanent Cosmetic Makeup- these include possible infection, allergic reaction, improper placement, dissatisfaction with the result, permanency and difficulty of removal. An individual’s informed decision to undergo any cosmetic procedure is based upon a comparison of the risks to potential benefits, alternatives, and cost. We take every necessary step and precaution to minimize the risks associated with permanent makeup.
You may experience a minor and tolerable degree of scratching/pricking during the procedure. A topical anesthetic is used to reduce discomfort and promote relaxation. The treated area may be slightly tender immediately following the procedure. Tenderness will diminish within a few days post-treatment.
This will depend on the appearance and design of the previous permanent makeup and is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. You can send clear pictures to for analysis and we can give you a clean answer based on the pictures we receive, and follow up with a consultation if necessary.
Unfortunately, not all clients are good candidates for permanent makeup due to the existence of certain contraindicated skin conditions or pre-existing medical conditions. If you have a contraindicated skin condition you may not retain colour well and thus may not be entirely satisfied with your outcome.

he following medical conditions preclude you from having a procedure: Pregnancy or nursing Hemophilia Heart Conditions/Pacemaker/Defibrillator Body runs hot (increased bleeding) Bleeding disorders Thyroid condition and taking medication for this condition (Hypo, Hyperthyroidism, Graves Disease, Hashimoto’s) Autoimmune Disorder such as LUPUS or Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (MS, RA, Lupus or the like) Trichotillomania (Compulsive pulling of body hair) Upper or lower eyelid surgery

If you are excessively tanned or you have a sunburn, a procedure is not recommended. Wait for the skin to fully heal and return to your natural complexion before going ahead.
Over time, your permanent makeup will fade due to many factors such as: natural skin exfoliation, sun exposure, medications and the use of creams/chemicals. To maintain the colour and shape it is advisable to touch up the treated area every 1 to 2 years. A good indication of needing maintenance is when you start having to add to your permanent makeup with pencil or other cosmetics.
Permanent makeup is long-lasting and can remain in the skin for 1 to 5 years depending on the colour, placement, and your skin type. The most effective and safe removal option is laser tattoo removal, offered by specialist. If you have existing permanent makeup and need corrective work, you will be advised of your best options. Dose of Brows Studio does not perform laser, or any other variety of tattoo removal service.
Permanent makeup is not advised for Fitzpatrick Skin types 1 (light blonde or red heads/translucent skin/light eyes). Due to hypersensitivity and thinness of this skin type, it generally does not hold the colour well and can bleed quite easily.

Our salon is an open-concept microblading and beauty shop. Clients are receiving PMU/Microblading services all throughout the day. Clients require a calm and peaceful atmosphere to receive microblading services, and our technicians need the same stress-free environment to perform their Artistic work optimally. It’s not fair to either to bring your children, as their behavior is sometimes unpredictable. Even if you feel your child is well-behaved and will sit quietly in our waiting area, that is still against our policies and is not permitted - no exceptions. If you arrive at your appointment with a child, you will be rescheduled, and you will be assessed a fee as per our Business Policies.
It is best to avoid swimming, saunas, sun beds, tanning, and steam rooms for at least 48 hours after your Semi-Permanent Hairstroke Brows treatment.

No, we do not recommend tweezing or waxing between threading sessions. Threading slows down and reduces hair growth. ... Tweezing just one time in between will reverse all that is achieved from threading and can further irritate follicles which can cause hair to become ingrown, coarser, and darker.
When it comes to microblading, there is a big difference in the skill level and experience of artists in the industry. Not all microbladers are created equally so even though there are thousands of people performing Microblading across the United States, the way it is done by Dose of Brows is unlike any other in the industry. Having sparse, thin, and uneven brows is a challenge that many of us face today. Even with the rising popularity of microblading eyebrows, most people don’t know that you can have perfectly fluffy brows that look natural.
