FAQs

Permanent Eyebrow Makeup

How long do eyebrows last?

Semi-permanent treatments will fade over time and on average will need a color touch up every one to two years. Typically, darker colors will last a bit longer than the lighter toned colors and using a shaded method will last longer compared to a hair stroke look.  Typically, microblading touch-ups are every 12-15 months.  Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors such as sun exposure, skin type (thin or oily skin typically fades quicker), facial treatments, skin products, etc. Following the aftercare very closely is crucial and failure to follow instructions fully will result in substandard results.


Does it hurt?

A topical numbing agent is applied to the brows before your appointment and will sit for 30 minutes to ensure it’s working at its full potential. Some clients may still experience sensitivity so I will also apply another numbing agent during the procedure. You will still feel me working but it shouldn’t be painful. I will apply the numbing agent and let it sit longer if you feel any pain during the procedure.


What are pigments made of?

Our pigments are made up of organic and inorganic pigments which are safe for the skin. They’re manufactured in the United States, therefore, we feel confident in knowing the company is meeting all the correct health and safety standards. The pigments have been manufactured for 30 years and have been winning awards for over 25 years. They are tested every 18 months for heavy metals, etc. They are without a doubt the safest pigments in the industry to be deposited into the skin.



Can I get permanent makeup done while pregnant?

Unfortunately, I cannot perform this service during pregnancy.  During pregnancy, facial tissues can be distorted and stretch due to swelling and fluid retention. This means that makeup tattoos applied during pregnancy can change in shape once the baby has been born and the swelling subsides.  When you are breaking the skin, there is a risk of infection as well, and I would never want to put you or baby at risk.  If you’re nursing, the worst-case scenario would be in the event that you get a secondary infection from your tattoo it could then possibly pass through breast milk and onto the baby. Yet however small that risk may actually be, there are other factors that can negatively affect the outcome of a cosmetic tattoo for a pregnant or nursing mother. Because hormones affect the growth and appearance of the skin, hair and nails, hormonal changes during pregnancy and the postpartum period have been known to bring about noticeable changes in appearance for some women, which are usually temporary but sometimes not. Breast feeding while getting permanent makeup done can also affect the color retention. It is recommended to wait 6 weeks after you are done breast feeding to let your hormones level out.

Laser Services

Am I candidate for Laser Hair Removal 

Laser hair removal works best on individuals with pale skin and dark coarse hair. However, here at HoneyBelle Beauty Bar we have technology that is successful for permanent hair reduction in all skin types. Unfortunately, it does not pick up light blonde, red or gray hair successfully.  If you aren’t sure stop in for a free consultation and a spot test. 


Is Laser suitable for PCOS  

If you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and are interested in treating it with laser hair removal, it’s important to have a clear understanding of the treatment and possible results before getting started. 

Many clients with PCOS achieve excellent results from laser hair removal treatment, and it can significantly improve their self-confidence. Although the results for many clients can be successful, and often life changing, they will need to continue to have the treatments on a regular basis to maintain a reduction in hair growth. 

As an existing medical condition like PCOS affects the body’s hair growth, it’s impossible to guarantee a result, as increased hair growth may continue in spite of regular laser hair removal treatments. 

Before starting on a laser hair removal program with HoneyBelle Beauty Bar, you’ll have a complimentary consultation to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment. 


Is Laser Suitable for those pregnant or nursing? 

No, you can't have this treatment while  pregnant or breastfeeding. 

How long does it last? 

Results vary from person to person, and hormonal changes can affect the hair growth as well, but we expect long-term results.

How many treatments should I require for laser hair removal?

The amount of treatments necessary varies from area and skin type but a fair average is between 6 and 10. Approximately,  15 % of hair is in its growth phase at any given time and in order for the laser to work it needs to attack the hair at the root when in this phase. To achieve the best results, it is important to stick closely to the treatment time-line the specialist provides you and maintain good pre-and post-treatment care.

How long should I wait in between appointments?

These treatments are typically performed around 4-6 weeks apart to allow us to target as many hairs as possible throughout the hair growth cycle. It's also important not to wax or epilate in between treatments - but shaving is fine!

What should I do before my treatment?

In order to be a good candidate for laser hair removal there are some things you should avoid before your laser treatments. Avoid tanning for 2 to 4 weeks prior if possible.  It is important for you to avoid waxing for six weeks. This is also the case with the use of tweezers. The laser needs to be able to identify the hair follicle. During this time period, shaving is acceptable. Avoid anti-inflammatory medications and antibiotics  5 days prior to treatment. If you are on a regular medication prescribed by a doctor be sure to consult the doctor and/or the laser specialist to see if the medication will be a problem for laser treatments. Make sure to cleanly shave the area the day of your treatment. Please refrain from applying any lotions, oils, deodorants to the area. Be sure to keep your medical history up to date with your specialist/technician. Without knowing the truth, you put yourself in jeopardy and open yourself to the risk of burns


What should I do post treatment?

Post treatment care is necessary to achieve the desired results. We want to make sure you are happy. Be sure to avoid the sun between sessions if possible and if you must be in the sun use an SPF 30 or higher. Avoid any other laser treatments or chemical peels on the area for at least 2 weeks. Do not wax or tweeze between sessions, shaving is okay as it does not disturb the hair root. Avoid and harsh soaps or exfoliating for 48 hours after treatment. Avoid excessive sweating for 48 hours (sorry no hot yoga, saunas, steam rooms). Exfoliate treated areas to avoid the possibility of in-grown hairs.  Make sure to book your next treatment before you leave and to follow the schedule as best as possible


How will I look after my Skin Rejuvenation treatment?

It depends on the treatment. For sun damage and brown spots like freckles, they tend to get darker for a few days before they scab and start to fall off. For veins, the skin may look more red for a few days but make up can be applied directly after the treatment so long as it is applied and removed gently.

There is no down time for this treatment and you can return to work right away.



How many skin rejuvenation treatments will I require?

Some people are pleased with the results after the first treatment and don’t feel the need to return for more but the average number of sessions for the desired results is four.

To achieve the best results, it is important to stick closely to the treatment time-line the specialist provides you and maintain good pre-and post-treatment care.

Body Contouring

What is body contouring?

As we get older, our bodies start to produce less collagen and store more fat. This is what eventually leads to wrinkles, sagging, cellulite and other signs of ageing. Venus Versa™ body shaping treatments use radio frequency technology to naturally boost collagen production and break down fat cells, which diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, tightens sagging skin, reduces the appearance of  cellulite, and makes the body look slimmer, sculpted, and more toned. Radio frequency is proven safe and effective for all skin tones.

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

The best candidate is someone who wants to improve their figure without surgery. They may have cellulite and/or excess body fat that they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise alone. An ideal candidate is also someone who is starting to lose elasticity in their skin and is showing early signs of sagging.

For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:

  • Active inflammation and/or infection in the treatment area

  • Current or history of cancer

  • A degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that’s stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)

  • An Internal defibrillator/pacemaker

  • Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area

  • Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder

  • Varicose veins

  • Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure

  • Skin-related autoimmune diseases

  • Silicone implants and/or injections in the area


Do I need to do anything before my treatment?

Just make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.


How long will the results last and are they permanent?

The treatments are cumulative. After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve for up to 3-4 months. After that, your face and body continue to age, so maintenance is recommended once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on the person.

What is a an OctiPolar Treatment?

Octipolar can be used to help treat cellulite, loose skin on the upper arms, waist line reduction,abdominal tightening, thigh circumference, contouring and lifting of the Buttocks


What is a Diamond Polar facial treatment?

Diamond Polar radio frequency treatments  tighten and contour the skin. It is a non-invasive, virtually pain-free procedure that creates enough thermal effect to induce collagen remodeling.

How does the procedure work?

By stimulating the formation of new collagen and  boosts the production of new elastin fibers and fibroblasts. The result? Skin that is visibly firmer, smoother, and younger-looking.


What areas can be treated with Diamond Polar?

Almost any area of the body that has sagging or wrinkling can be treated.  Common areas include the face, neck, upper arms, and knees.

What can I expect during my treatment?

This treatment feels like similar to a hot stone massage. It’s a quick and easy procedure that gives an immediate lift with no down time.

During the treatment your provider will place a clear gel to the treatment area.  The diamond polar treatment gradually warms the areas to the optimal temperature that stimulates collagen.

Each area will be treated for 10-30 minutes.

How many treatments are recommended?

Best results are obtained by performing 6-8 treatments performed weekly.  The diamond polar can also be used to maintain the results of more invasive laser treatments.

What results can I expect?

You may see firmer, glowing skin in as little as a single treatment but for optimal results it is best to do a series of treatment.

Can I put on makeup after my treatment?

Yes, you can apply makeup and/or lotion immediately after your treatment.
