What is semi-permanent cosmetic make-up?

Semi-permanent cosmetic make-up or cosmetic tattooing often referred

to as ‘micropigmentation’ is a procedure that benefits those who

desire a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance. People

with less than steady hands, anyone who is physically active and

is worried about make-up being washed away or getting wiped off

due to sweating and individuals with less than perfect vision can

benefit from permanent cosmetics.

What areas can be treated with this?

  • Eyebrow enhancement

  • Eyeliner- upper lid as well as lower

  • Lip liner and lip colouring


Are permanent cosmetics really permanent?

Permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or colorant (pigment) in general, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance referred to as colour re-enhancement or colour refreshing.

What does the semi-permanent cosmetic make-up procedure entail?

The initial procedure generally takes close to two hours. During this time our doctors will first explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you may. Your expectations from the treatment and expected results are also discussed in detail. At this stage our doctors will also help you decide your desired colour and design.To ensure your comfort, a topical anesthetic agent is applied beforehand.

What if I don’t like it?

Although the procedure is considered permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing colour and shape to some extent, depending on the expertise of your technician. Colours will appear darker immediately following the procedure but will soften and lighten during the healing process. The healing time is different for each individual and procedure.It takes time to get used to a new look this especially applies to eyebrows which were sparse and unnoticeable before the permanent cosmetic brow procedure. Eyeliner colour is more evident due to the contrast to the skin colour.  Lip colour can take up to six weeks to reflect the final colour.
