What is Semi Permanent Makeup?
Semi-Permanent Make-Up (also known as micropigmentation, permanent cosmetics and cosmetic tattooing) is a revolutionary and safe method of inserting small amounts of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. This is achieved by using a state of the art machine specifically designed for the cosmetic market. Treatments last around two to five years and are carried out in accordance with strict Health & Safety guidelines.
What makes semi-permanent make-up different to a tattoo?
A traditional tattoo is placed at 3.5mm under the skin which is below the exfoliating layers whereas Semi Permanent Make-up is placed at around 2mm depending on the area being treated. Tattooists will use inks that contain carbon which is extremely difficult to remove from the skin. Semi Permanent make-up is pigment which contains oxides which leave the body much more easily.
