Semi-permanent makeup is a gentle form of tattooing, which is also known as micropigmentation, permanent makeup, cosmetic tattooing – they are all the same treatment. A digital rotary handpiece is used to skilfully implant pigment into the upper dermal layer of the skin.
Many different effects, styles and colours can be achieved taking into consideration skin tone, condition and texture. Pigment, for instance, can be implanted to mimic brow hair by adding hairstrokes to sparse brows to give the illusion of thicker, more uniformed eyebrows. Powder brows can be achieved to give a soft brow effect. Your desired brow effect will be discussed as part of your consultation and, yet again, dependent on your skin and lifestyle, will dictate what effect is best for you.
Semi-permanent makeup is a two-step procedure. At the first appointment we will discuss the procedure, your expectations, what can be achieved and carry out the first treatment. The first appointment takes approximately 2 hours. After this first appointment there is a healing period of 4 weeks, and then a retouch appointment approximately 4-8 weeks later.
The retouch appointment allows us to see how your skin has retained the pigment and the adjustments needed, to give you the desired healed result.
