Semi-permanent make up

Semi-permanent make up has been used for many years by celebrities and busy women who want make up looks that last.

Do you have very little hair to your eyebrows or eyelashes and you want to re define them naturally without it looking false or ‘drawn on’?

Are you fed up with applying make up every morning to the same areas to help you feel confident or to improve the look of your skin?

Are you going on holiday and wanting to look fresh and ready, in or out of the water, not having to worry about re-applying your make up?

Do you smoke and feel you want to get back the natural pink or red colour to your lips that you have lost?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then semi-permanent make up (also called micro-pigmentation) might well be for you.

Semi-permanent make up procedures have been successfully undertaken for many years by both celebrities and busy women to create make up looks that last.

Your questions answered

What is semi-permanent makeup?

Semi-permanent make up is pigment implanted into the dermal layer of the skin using a machine designed specifically for the cosmetic and medical market.

The procedure is carried out by a specially-trained micro-pigmentation artist, in accordance with strict health and safety protocols and using single-use sterile needle cartridges.

What areas can be treated?

The areas that can be treated to have that 24/7, beautiful and fresh make up look are:

  • lips
  • eyebrows
  • eyes and eyeliner.

The most popular treatment is the eyebrows. With semi-permanent make up you can add shape and lift to your eyebrows, and define sparse or over-plucked hair.

All of which means no more pencil or redefining your shape of the face, revealing a more youthful appearance with your newly-shaped eyebrows you have always wanted.

Who is suitable?

This is a treatment to think about if you have fair or blonde hairs, have alopecia or had chemotherapy, or if your eyebrows are just so sparse that you can hardly see them.

You will need to collect a test patch from us - to use at home at least 24 hours before your treatment session - to make sure your skin is suitable for semi-permanent make up.

How does the treatment work?

Your coloured pigments will be selected and discussed at your consultation, to find those that suit your skin tone and which you feel happy with.  The aim is to achieve that beautiful, long-lasting look you have always wanted, or always carry out each morning to achieve with your make up secrets.

All procedures need a full consultation with our micro-pigmentation specialist, which we can be arrange.

You will be asked to call in and collect a sensitivity kit containing two patches that you must apply to your skin at least 24 hours before your treatment, to make sure you are safe to have the procedure. Full instructions are contained in the kit.

What is the downtime?

It all depends on the areas you are having treated, so we suggest you speak with the micro-pigmentation specialist when you attend the clinic for your consultation.

How long does it last?

The treatment lasts between 3 and 5 years.
