Creating Permanent Beauty
The principle of Permanent Make Up is as simple as it is effective. Also known as semi permanent makeup and cosmetic micropigmentation, a term used for applying coloured pigments into the epidermal layer of the skin enhancing Mother Nature’s gifts without ever having to reach for your makeup bag. Women of all ages are experiencing the difference permanent makeup and micropigmentation can make. After just one treatment course of permanent make up you can have stunning smudge free make-up that will last for years to come.
Who Will Benefit from Permanent Make Up?
Anyone who requires emphasis of the ‘brows’ 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 you will be amazed to see the difference balanced brows can make.
Make the most of your eyes with micropigmentation. From subtle to dramatic, eyelash enhancement or eyeliner can dramatically define eyes, creating great looks that are long-lasting and always perfect.
For a truly subtle and beautiful cosmetic effect, micropigmentation is an excellent way of enhancing the shape and colour of your lips. With a skilled application, lips can look fuller and more shapely.
Permanent Make Up – Questions and Answers
Q. Who decides the shape and colour?
A. You do. There are a vast number of colours and any bespoke colour can be mixed to compliment your natural skin tones. The new shape and colour is always drawn on for your approval prior to applying the permanent colour.
Q. Is Permanent Make Up safe?
A. Yes. The strictest hygiene and sterilisation standards are followed. Everything used is new for each client.
Q. Is it painful?
A. It’s no problem for most people, a little uncomfortable for some e.g. eyebrow enhancement is compared to plucking your brows. The procedure takes about 30 – 45 minutes and many years of looking great will outweigh any momentary discomfort.
In some cases, there may be slight swelling or redness to the treated area, this will subside very quickly. You may resume your normal activities immediately following the procedure. You will be given aftercare instructions at your treatment. Your Permanent Make Up treatment will last for up to 2 to 3 years, by which time it will have faded. In the UAE we recommend a retouch at 12 to 18 months after the initial treatment or when you feel the micropigmentation has faded. The time permanent make up lasts heavily depends on skin type and exposure to UV rays therefore in the Middle East permanent make up usually lasts nearer 2 years.

Permanent Make Up Pigments
Permanent Make Up Pigments (we use the term Semi Permanent Makeup) are designed to degrade over time. No semi permanent make up pigments contain blue, not even the blue has a blue hue in it. Blue pigment is often associated with cheaper body art tattoo pigment and if this is used for permanent makeup procedures, results in the horror stories we hear about where eyebrows have turned blue or green.
