Semi Permanent Make Up is a cosmetic technique which involves tattoo-ing the skin using pigments to produce designs that resemble makeup such as eye liner and lipstick. The technique can also be used to create artificial eyebrows, this is particularly desirable for people who have reduced brow coverage as a consequence of old age, medical conditions and treatments such as alopecia, chemotherapy or just due to over tweezing. The effects last anywhere between 1-5 years with recommended refresh treatments from 12mths – 18mths. The long lasting effects of this treatment make it very cost effective for clients.

Most commonly called semi permanent make up, other names include micro-pigmentation and cosmetic tattooing.
