What You Should Know About Semi Permanent Make Up

What is semi-permanent make up?

Semi permanent make-up is a simple procedure of implanting colour into the skin borrowing a technique from tattooing. A wide range of colours are available to select from and your practitioner should be able to guide you as to the shades that best suit you.

It can normally be applied to eyebrows, top eyeliner, bottom eyeliner, lipliner and full lip colour.

How does it work?

The way semi-permanent make-up works is via the use of specialised instruments to place the colour through the outermost layer of the skin- the epidermis and into the dermis- the deeper layers. Because the epidermis is always shedding and renewing itself, the colour will be visible through a thin veil of skin. When the procedure is accomplished, the colour will appear darker and more defined than the final result. This is because the colour is located in both the epidermis and the dermis. The colour in the top layer will flake off during the healing process.

How long will it last?

You will find that the semi permanent make-up colour will fade with time and will therefore require top-up procedures every 1-3 years depending on the your skin type, environment and the colours used. Your beauty salon will normally offer a top up service.

Safety Considerations

  • You will be given an allergy test prior to the application of the semi permanent make up.

  • Strict hygiene is applied for the procedure with sterilisation of equipment and individual sterile cartridges for every client.

  • No chemicals are used in the process.

  • Always make sure that the beauty salon has a professionally trained technician to carry out the work.

Will it hurt?

Topical anaesthetics have been developed especially for permanent make-up for eyeliner, eyebrows and lip colour procedures. These creams and gels are applied to the desired area 30-45 minutes before the procedure to ensure you experience minimal discomfort. Generally, semi-permanent make-up procedures are described as causing a "tingling" sensation. Most people experience mild discomfort, particularly for lip colour procedures. The procedure is generally quick and therefore any discomfort is usually short lived.

Am I a good candidate for semi-permanent make-up?

Almost everyone can benefit from the use of semi-permanent make-up. Whether you just want to save time in the mornings, you're tired of drawing in your own eyebrows unevenly or having your eye/lip liner smudge by lunchtime, you will find a semi permanent make a great time saver and have a consistent and professional, long lasting result. Moreover, semi-permanent make-up can also be used as a means to improve your appearance when daily make-up is a difficult or insufficient alternative. Examples of reasons for this include:

1. Sensitive skin or allergies

2. If you wear glasses or contact lenses or have had laser eye surgery

3. Arthritis or painful hands

4. Ageing changes in brows, lips, eyes

5. Active, outdoor lifestyles - an end to make up runs.

6. Loss of hair from alopecia, chemotherapy, accidents, burns or cosmetic surgery.

7. Colour correction. Scar camouflage, breast areola loss, cleft lip and vitiligo

Semi permanent make-up treatments are available for both men and women. The overall impact can be subtle or very striking depending on your requirements. You should consult with your beauty consultant to decide what is perfect for your needs.
