What is Semi-Permanent Make-Up?
Semi-Permanent Make-Up, or Micropigmentation, is a cosmetic technique which creates tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble make-up, such as eyeliner and other permanent enhancing colours to the skin of the face, lips, eyelids & areola. It is also used to create eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, alopecia, chemotherapy and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast’s areola after breast surgery.
How does it work?
Semi-Permanent Make-Up, or SMPU as its often referred to, can be applied in many different ways, shapes, designs or colours. Gone are the days of ‘Scouse-Brows’ and embarrassing permanently surprised high-arched brows! Pigments come in a vast range of colours from black, to brown, to blonde, with every warm and cool tone you can think of. Colour should be chosen to compliment your age, style & skin-tone. Design can be created in a block colour for the more daring and in soft hair strokes for those who prefer the more natural look.
