What is semi-permanent make-up?
Semi-permanent make-up also known as micro-pigmentation is a cosmetic procedure to create long lasting eyeliner, lip liner, lip blush and eyebrow definition.
This choice is perfect for those who want to shave time off their beauty routine, or suffer with allergies to conventional makeup, this cosmetic treatment works by inserting micropigments into the skin. The most common services requested include microblading, lip contour, permanent eyeliner, beauty spots and freckles.
A top up is necessary for all semi permanent make-up treatments.
It is advisable to book the top up appointment around six to eight weeks after the initial procedure to achieve the desired result. Semi permanent make-up can last up to two/three years. The duration depends on the area treated, UV exposure, skin type, general health and lifestyle.
Lighter colours fade faster than darker colours and all colours will change with time. SPF 30 is recommended to prevent the semi permanent make-up from fading in the sun.
