Semi-Permanent Makeup

Semi-Permanent Makeup (also known as Micropigmentation) is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment that offers long lasting results. It can be used in place of traditional make up, saving you time and money.

What is Semi-Permanent Makeup?

Semi-permanent makeup enhances your facial features, giving them shape and definition without the need for cosmetics – and allowing you to look your best from the moment you wake up.

The treatment can also be used for medical reasons, to improve the appearance of scarring, burns, cleft palate, etc, and even restore the areola and/or nipples of patients who have undergone breast surgery.

Why choose semi-permanent makeup?

  • Look your best at all times, even first thing in the morning
  • Long lasting results
  • Saves money and time
  • No smudging or running
  • Choice of colour and placement

What can be treated with semi-permanent makeup?


Eyebrows frame the face, and if they are sparse, undefined or assymmetrical it can affect the whole balance of the face. An eyebrow tattoo can make your brows more prominent, adding instant character and definition.

Depending on your preference and the look you want to achieve, there are different styles available when it comes to semi-permanent eyebrows. You can choose between a soft textured look or realistic hair simulation – the latter being particularly suitable for those who have lost brows through medical conditions like alopecia.

Eyes (Semi-permanent eyeliner and “mascara”)

Semi-permanent eyeliner means no more worries about your eyeliner smudging, whether you are swimming, playing other sports or just out in the rain. A “mascara” effect can also be achieved through precise application of micro dots of pigment in between the natural lashes, creating the illusion of more thickness.

Dramatic results can be achieved with semi-permanent eye makeup, as eyes play such a huge part in the overall appearance of the face.

Lips (Lip liner and full colour)

Semi-permanent makeup can be used both to line the lips, and to apply full colour – doing the job of both lip pencil and lipstick. Choosing semi-permanent makeup on your lips means no more leaving your lipstick on glasses and cups!

Medical tattooing

Also known as cosmetic pigment camouflage (CPC), medical tattooing can be used to camouflage scars and burns, treating the affected areas to match the surrounding skin tone. The technique is also useful for recreating the areola around the nipple if it has been lost through a mastectomy or breast reconstruction surgery (this is known as ‘areola reconstruction’).

What does semi-permanent make-up involve?

The procedure involves applying coloured pigments into the dermal layer of the skin, using exactly the same technique as a tattoo.

There may be some slight swelling immediately after treatment, which may last for a few days, and the colour will initially be darker and more intense. The final colour will be achieved after around 6 weeks, once the pigment has matured.

How long does the treatment take?

Depending on the area to be treated, a session typically lasts around 1-2 hours, with minimal discomfort and recovery time.

How long will the effects last?

The colour will last for several years, though the exact length of time varies depending on a person’s age, skin type, colour choice and lifestyle.
