What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is the implantation of micro pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. The process used is similar to that of a tattoo but the depth of implantation is 0.55m instead of .75mm. Numbing agents are used through out the process for client comfort. Permanent makeup can be used to reshape and colour over plucked eyebrows, it can be used to create beautiful subtle or dramatic eyeliner, or to reinvigorate lips, returning shape and colour. It can also be used medically to recreate Areola lost to mastectomy. The permanent make up process is 3 treatments, a consultation, the enhancement and a fine tuning treatment.


Permanent makeup has many benefits, it is mainly used as a cosmetic purpose, many of my ladies and gentleman have sparse eyebrows due to over plucking or a medical condition. There are however many other uses. Did you know for example tattooed make up is used to recreate the areola for breast cancer patients? or did you know permanent makeup is used for conditions such as Alopecia? One of the fastest growing areas of permanent makeup is scar camouflage, this is the process of implanting tiny micropigments into the skin to match the surrounding tissue, blending the scar tissue. Can Permanent makeup help you?
