What is Permanent Make Up?

Permanent cosmetic makeup is the art and science of implanting colour into the skin, also known as semi-permanent make up. This is done by using a machine / hand tool which deposits pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. Because the outermost layer of skin, the epidermis, is always shedding and renewing itself, you are looking at the colour through a thin veil of skin. The main aim of permanent make up is to enhance one’s natural beauty, by adding colour, fullness and perfection.


Why does it look so dark at first?
When your procedure is completed, the colour will appear darker, prominent and more vibrant than the final result. This is due to the pigment being in both the epidermis and the dermis. The colour in the top layer of the skin, will flake off during the healing process.


Will I really look like myself?
Due to the pigment that is being placed into as oppose onto the skin it will look more natural and softer once the healing process is finished. Permanent Make Up was designed to enhance the beautiful features of the face.

Does permanent makeup hurt?

New topical anaesthetics have been developed especially for permanent cosmetic procedures. These creams and gels are applied to the desired area before and during the procedure to assure the most comfortable experience possible. Some people may find more discomfort than others, especially around the eye area. The area may be tender after the procedure for about 2 days.

How long is recovery?

This varies from person to person; in most cases it takes 3 to 7 days for a full recovery. Note that the optimal colour result will only be visible from 4 to 8 weeks, due to the colour that needs to resurface.

How long will my permanent makeup last?

Permanent make-up is also known as semi-permanent make up, reason being the depth the pigment is deposited underneath the skin, and over time it will fade, that will requires touch up procedures.

Can I remove my permanent makeup if I change my mind?
With new technology there is a way to remove previous permanent makeup. It is very uncomfortable but possible. Note that with the removal process it may take several sessions for completion of removal.

Can I get my permanent makeup cheaper?

What if I have plastic or laser surgery?

Laser surgery or resurfacing may result in colour loss or darkening of your makeup depending on the laser. It is advisable to wait 6months till after your procedure before proceeding with permanent make up procedure.
