Semi Permanent Makeup or Permanent Makeup?

By Candice Watson

There is some confusion when choosing Semi Permanent Makeup (SPMU) or Permanent Makeup (PMU) in the UAE. If done correctly the two are basically the same procedures with a slight name change to adhere to the local views on body tattooing and permanent tattoo procedures.

The term Permanent Makeup is widely used in the UK, Europe and USA and whether it is called Semi or Permanent it is the process of implanting pigments into the upper dermal layer of the skin using ultra-fine needles capable of finer than hair stroke thickness lines.

Pigments should be pharmaceutical grade allowing the pigments to be naturally expelled by the skin over a period of 2 to 3 years. SPMU machines should be medical grade with finely tuned settings for facial use.

Using the correct pigments and machines do not always ensure quality results, the experience of the technician also plays a huge part. The ability to assess a person’s features and draw a shape to suit those features is a skill achieved over many years of practice.

The confusion in name allows technicians to use cheaper machines and chemical pigments usually associated with body tattooing. Pigments are implanted much deeper into the skin hence if a technician is using a much cheaper body tattoo machine with cheaper chemical pigments then the result over time is the area turns blue or grey and is permanent like any other body tattoo. We have all heard horror stories of poorly done SPMU treatments with blue eyebrows in a “spock” shape.

When deciding where to have your SPMU treatments remember cheap is not best when applying procedures to your face that could last up to 5 years.

Permanent Eyebrows

Anyone who requires emphasis of the eyebrows will love this procedure and the time saved not having to pencil every day. If you have no brow hair, or sparse brows due to over plucking the difference balanced brows can make is amazing.

Permanent Eyeliner

Make the most of your eyes with semi permanent makeup and micropigmentation. From subtle to dramatic, eyelash enhancement or eyeliner can dramatically define eyes, creating great looks that are long-lasting and always perfect.

Permanent Lip Liner and Full Lip Colour

For a truly subtle and beautiful cosmetic effect, semi permanent makeup is an excellent way of enhancing the shape and colour of your lips. With skilled application, lips can look fuller and more shapely.
