What is Semi-Permanent Make-Up?

Semi-permanent make up, also known as micropigmentation, is a form of temporary cosmetic tattooing which allows you to have long lasting makeup, commonly on the eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. The treatment allows definition and enhancement of the treated areas.

The procedure involves tiny particles of pigment being placed beneath the surface of the skin, much like a tattoo. This pigment will stay in the skin for a number of years, gradually breaking down and fading with time, although the longevity of the results will depend on your age and skin type.

Indications for Semi-Permanent Make-Up

Anyone who wears make-up is a potential candidate for semi-permanent make-up.

If you lack colour and shape to your lips and want to enhance them without having dermal fillers; if you regularly pencil in your eyebrows or would like to give them a better shape or fill in gaps where they have been over plucked; if you want to enhance your eyes and want the effects of eyeliner without the running and under eye smudging; if you want to open up your eyes and raise your eyebrows without the need for a brow lift; if you are allergic to traditional cosmetics or if you simply want to save time by not having to apply a full face of make-up every day, then semi-permanent make-up could be an option for you. The ideal candidate for this treatment will also have realistic expectations about what it can achieve.

The technique is also used for medical applications such as:

• Areola (nipple) tattooing following mastectomy
• Eyebrow reconstruction for alopecia patients and those who have lost hair through burns, operations or accidents
• Camouflage of vitiligo
• Cosmetic correction of cleft palate
• Correction of facial asymmetry
• Camouflage of surgical scars (See our section on Medical Tattooing for more information on this)

People who should not have treatment are those with an active skin disease or infection, women who are pregnant or breast feeding, insulin dependent diabetics, people with heart conditions and those who are prone to keloid scarring.

The Treatment

A topical anaesthetic is usually used to minimise discomfort during treatment.

The practitioner will then usually mark out the area being treatment with a cosmetic pencil to act as a guideline. The pigments are then placed under the skin using a very fine needle attached to a hand-held electrical device.

Your treatment may take anywhere between half an hour and two hours depending on the area(s) you are having treated. You will usually need to come in for more than one appointment to achieve the right result as the pigments may be absorbed and need topping up.

Because the techniques used nowadays are more natural and require less pigment, your results may not last as long as in the past where more pigment was used. How long your results last will vary depending on how quickly your body absorbs the pigment but can be anywhere between three months to two years.

After the treatment

There is virtually no downtime with semi-permanent make-up treatment and you will be able to resume normal activities straight away.

The pigment in the treated area may appear to be a little dark for a few days after the procedure and you may have some redness. In some cases, you may get some slight swelling or bruising.

Make sure you follow the post treatment advice given to you by your practitioner carefully. This usually includes staying out of the sun, not going swimming for a couple of weeks, avoiding traditional make-up for three or four days and avoiding picking or scratching at the area. If your eyes have been treated and you are a contact lenses wearer you may need to wear glasses for a few days after treatment.
