I had a really great experience going to school at Biotouch. I went for the 6 day pmu course in April 2021 with zero... experience in the field.Julia was an excellent teacher, she is very knowledgeable and talented. She explained lessons very clearly and always had answers to my questions.At first I felt working on people with only theory and watching a live demo was very nerve racking and that I wasn't quite ready, but in hind sight I realize it was the very best way to learn. Hands on gave me a different level of confidence, and made me realize that I can do this. I now truly believe it is the only way to learn.The Biotouch site is a very clean and professional work space. Getting to work in a running place really shows you what this job in tails.You learn alot in a very short time.This place. Has set me up with the very best skills I could ask for going ahead with my new career, feeling confident in what I have learned there.I can't thank Julia and Biotouch enough. I highly recommend this place!read more

I have had my eyebrows microbladed/powdered by Lisa (the Master Technician/Instructor) and I could not be happier with... the results! It was mostly painless and she was very attentive and listened to what I wanted. I have referred so many people here to see her and even the students during courses. They offer great discounts for models so tell your friends! The office is beautiful and the staff are all so friendly and down to earth and professional too! Updating this to make a note that the Venus Versa treatments are amazing as well. The IPL is noticeably effective after only 1 treatment and the contouring feels amazing.read more

The entire experience was profoundly professional beginning with Julia greeting me and explaining the procedure that I... would be undergoing. Finer details were clearly outlined like taking before and after photos and aftercare service with instructions that were immensely valuable not to mention helpful. The procedure itself was undertaken by Daisy. She has a superb bedside manner, calming any anxieties and asking pertinent questions. Always checking to see if one felt uncomfortable or was the neck in the correct place. There was great care taken to address details. The procedure was painless and carefully explained. The results are stunning and has drawn many positive and rave reviews from my friends and colleagues. It’s rare to find such consummate professionals. So thank you to the wonderful team at Bio- touch Canada . Daisy and Julia you are both so professional and made my experience , a great one. Will definitely be recommending your stellar services.read more

I did my comprehensive permanent make up course, and loved it. We got to do hands on with multiple helpers. If there... were questions, there was always someone with an answer. They also made sure to let us know and remind us, that even after the course we always have their number for questions if any. They even sent me a text after the course to see how I was doing with everything. Felt very secure, and well guided; everything was well thought of right down to the actual business part. They also have rlly great products and prices. The course was about 5k, which rlly is great considering we got their silvera machine, ( which is a rlly nice piece), endless amounts of pigment to practice with during the 6 days, along with all 4 different skins to practice on, needles, pigment rings. Along with the book with all the answers and everything explained. To say less they give you all the tools you need, after the 6 days it’s all up to you! I can say I left there more confident everyday. If you’re looking into doing permanent make up I highly recommend biotouch Canada located in Vancouver !read more

Amid the covid19 crisis, I was lucky to have a one-on-one class for the BioTouch 3-Day Eyebrow Course with Julia... Russell as my teacher. She was very welcoming, patient, informative with a passion for what she does. She answered all my questions happily and always made me feel like my questions were valid. I learnt a LOT in 3 days. Jam-packed with very good info, and lots of practice time. I really enjoyed the course, and it's very likely i will be taking some more of the other courses in the next little while. Thanks so much!! Loved it!read more

The worst training ever. Outdated bad techniques from 20+ years ago. If you apply techniques they teach you, you end up... with a bad job that you get a complain from clients. Don’t buy any of their Biotouch products, their price are totally rip off new students. I have to take many other courses to be able to do permanent makeup properly.read more

I just finished my Comprehensive Permanent Makeup class and I have to say that I am totally happy. I chose to go to... biotouch based on the reviews and then when I called the school, Julia was super friendly and helpful and answered all my questions. When I went in to give my deposit the space was super clean and felt like a dentist office (a good thing in my opinion) Once I started, Danielle and Lisa were amazing. Very knowledgeable and caring. Their attention to me felt calm and not overwhelming. I didnt feel like I was left on my own at any point. My models (I was lucky to have many friends that trusted me) Said they loved the environment and felt at ease. I would highly recommend Biotouch to anyone looking to take this class.read more

Theory and hands on gave me a better grasp on the actual course as a whole. Our instructor Danielle did a fantastic... job guiding and teaching us through and so did Lisa showing us the actual procedures for eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. The 'CLINICAL' approach and training struck me the most as the outstanding feature of the entire course which is NOT common with other providers. The small class (5 students) made it possible for a more intended technique and in-depth training. I'm looking forward to the paramedical training in the future as an add-on!read more

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent Makeup, also called Cosmetic Tattooing or Micropigmentation, is the process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin by means of a tiny, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of cosmetic makeup.

What Is The Difference Between Permanent Makeup And Body Tattooing?

The purpose of Permanent Makeup procedures at BioTouch Canada is to enhance our clients’ features, not necessarily create artwork that stands out (such as body tattoos). Permanent Makeup is softer and more subtle – it is meant to be a natural looking beauty enhancement. Body tattoos use ink, Permanent Makeup procedures involve only iron-oxide based pigments designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the technician to make changes to colour and shape over the years as client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.

Does The Permanent Procedure Hurt?

A highly-effective, topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure.

How Safe Is Permanent Makeup?

Each procedure is done under strict sanitation and sterilization rules. A well-trained, certified technician administers each new procedure using disposable needles and parts. All pigments are iron-oxide based and contain FDA approved ingredients for cosmetic use.

What Are The Pigments Made Of?

BioTouch pigments come in a variety of colors specially formulated with iron oxide, an ingredient safe for the skin. We do not use pigments made from organic ingredients, such as vegetables as they have a high risk of carrying bacteria and causing allergic reactions. Because color is implanted just underneath the dermal layer of the skin, the resulting shade is soft and muted, unlike regular cosmetic makeup that sits on the surface of the skin.

What Are The Most Common Procedures Requested?

The most common procedures performed are eyebrows, eyeliner, lips, and color corrections/camouflage. The color and shape are designed to match and complement the client’s features and complexion. Eyebrows can be completely reconstructed in the absence of hair, or a few ‘hair’ strokes may be added to give added fullness to sparse areas – choose either a soft pencil appearance or natural feathering result. Permanent Makeup can enhance the natural features of the eyebrows with customized shaping. According to the shape of the person’s face and bone structure, Permanent Makeup can replace eyebrows that have lost their fullness with age and hair loss, or add defining tones to existing brows. An eyeliner procedure adds pigment close to the lash line for definition to the lashes and contours of the eye. From a natural, softer or smudged look, to a dramatic look, the thickness and color of the line are customized for each client. Following eye surgeries for medical reasons we are able to re-establish balance and correct scars in the eye area. Lip procedures most often requested are full lip color or lip liner. Natural lip lines can be corrected for asymmetries in shape or color as well as size. Lip liner can accentuate the lips by creating a more definite lip shape, enhancing the fullness and bringing more color to the lips. Individuals who suffer from having no definite lip shape, pale and gloomy lips, uneven lips or lips that have lost shape as a result of cold sores or injury can all benefit from this procedure. Please note that clients having a lip procedure done may require a prescription if they ever had cold sores/fever blisters/herpes on or around their lips. Color Correction & Camouflages – Cosmetic tattooing can be used to correct faded and undesired color, as well as camouflaging of scars and re-pigmenting the areola and nipples.

Will My Permanent Makeup Eyebrows Look Natural?

Yes! Many of our clients report that friends and family members did not know they have had a procedure, although they do wonder why they are looking younger. We use soft natural tones on the brows that complement each client and re-create hair strokes that give the illusion of real hair.

What Should I Expect At The First Appointment?

We provide a free consultation to all of our clients. You can arrange your consultation and procedure on separate days, or the same day. During your consultation, the technician will discuss your expectations and the ideal shape and color you are looking to achieve. The technician will do a make-up design preview to give you an idea of how you will look after the procedure, as well as offer some alternative style suggestions.

How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?

The treatment is permanent and will not wash off. However, it will fade over time and may need a retouch every 1- 5 years. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas. Touch-ups are normal for Permanent Makeup procedures, with each new procedure requiring 2 visits. The initial procedure followed by a free touch-up procedure about 2 months later. Lips may require one additional appointment.

What Should I Do Before My Procedure?

For lips: If you have EVER had cold sores/fever blisters/herpes on or around your lips, you MUST obtain a prescription from your doctor and inform him/her that your intention is to have a lip tattoo. Start taking it 3 days before and 4 days after the procedure (or follow the doctor’s instruction). Failure to take this anti-viral medication may well cause an outbreak, which in turn will compromise the results of your lip procedure. For eyeliner: Wear your regular glasses instead of your contact lenses. Do not wear mascara (especially water-proof mascara, because this is more difficult to remove, and doing so will cause the eyes to be more irritated and sensitive). For eyebrows: If you have an ideal shape and color in mind, bring reference photos and eyebrow pencil or powder. If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan this trip a minimum 10 days after the procedure. We also request our clients avoid prescription blood thinners (if possible) for 24 hours prior to their appointment. This also includes Vitamin E, Aspirin and Alcohol.

How Will I Look Immediately After? What Is The Healing Process?

Your permanent makeup will appear darker and bigger than expected for the first few days. This will gradually lighten over the course of a week. Eyeliner: Expect that your eyes will be swollen for up to 3 days (like how you would look after crying). Some careful maintenance is required to make the swelling go down faster. Eyebrows: Your eyebrows will appear thicker and much darker for up to 5 days post procedure until any scab peels off. The area may also be reddish and tender, so be gentle with your skin during the healing process and keep applying the aftercare product provided. Lips: Your lips will look very intense as well as become swollen for 2-4 days, depending on the individual. Usually the scab will peel off after 4-6 days. During this time, the color will look quite pale, only the lip line will show a light color. Be patient at this time until the skin matures which will take about 1-2 months until you can see a more natural result.

What Should I Do After The Procedure?

We provide very specific post-care instructions after your procedure. It is highly beneficial to follow these instructions to ensure a good healing process and to achieve the best results. The most essential aftercare is to keep the treated area moist, do not rub or pick as the color will peel off, and avoid extreme heat (like in saunas, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, places with hot humidity). For the lips, keep using the aftercare product provided to you (as a regular lip balm) to make the color last longer.

How Will My Permanent Makeup Look In The Future?

We always analyze our client’s skin undertone to anticipate how pigment colors will fade in the future, and we mix special formulas to ensure color remains in the same tone. For the majority of our clients, their Permanent Makeup stays in the ideal and true color. There are some cases however, which make colors fade to different tones according to the individual’s response to the pigments (like skin tone and iron deficiencies). Many factors affect these changes, in your follow up appointment we analyze how your body has responded to the initial color. Special formula alteration to correct the color and to prevent further color change is made at this time.

What Should I Know About Long Term Care?

A good sunscreen applied daily on tattooed area(s) is needed to help keep color true. Sun exposure will make the color fade faster. Our pigment is iron-oxide based. Your body absorb it as mineral irons, so the color will fade over time. You may need a touch-up every 1- 5 years. The fading speed depends on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, pigment color used, broken capillaries, iron deficiency, and if any chemical peels were done after Permanent Makeup. If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI or other medical procedure, please inform the technician that you have had an iron-oxide cosmetic tattoo. Careful application must be taken to avoid affecting the tattooed area. If you are planning to have laser treatments, tell your laser specialist to avoid the pigmented area. Laser may cause pigment to turn black.

How Do I Find The Right Permanent Makeup Artist To Do My Permanent Makeup?

It is so important to have a skilled Permanent Makeup Technician perform these procedures otherwise you may end up with a permanent mistake! The time and expense related with repairing poor quality work are simply not worth it.

  1. Find an experienced technician.
  2. Have a consultation first: – Is the place clean and safe? – Are the needles and accessories disposable? – Does the shape and design work have artistic taste?
  3. Look at non-decorated pictures of the technician’s work.
  4. Ask for references.
