Did you know that in Canada there is no regulatory body for the microblading or permanent makeup industry? This means that absolutely anyone can perform these services AND teach them, with little to no training or education and no permanent makeup or microblading certification. With lack of regulation there has been an exponential increase in quick courses and poor training. Some courses are even offered online, with no hands-on training at all, and many are only 2-3 days long.

Are your permanent makeup pigrments organic? This is a frequent question and one you should understand the answer to, whether you are a permanent makeup client or an artist. Sadly, most of today’s permanent makeup training programs don’t have the time or the understanding to address the chemical structure of pigments. The result is that both consumers and artists are often misinformed.

At Halcyon Cosmetic Solutions, we specialize in permanent makeup tattoo removal and conventional tattoo removal. We are trained and experienced in laser tattoo removal but opt to use Hypertonic Saline tattoo removal solutions for the face. These gentle and effective methods of tattoo removal minimize any chance of permanently altering your skin's integrity or damaging your melanocytes (colour-producing skin cells).
