What is semi permanent make-up?

Semi-permanent make-up also known as permanent cosmetics, derma graphic art, micro-pigmentation or cosmetic tattooing is a procedure whereby minute particles of natural and synthetic iron oxide colour pigments are implanted little more than 1.5mm below the skin surface using a hand piece tool that holds a sterile needling group. The depth varies depending on which area of the face is being pigmented.

How is this semi-permanent and not permanent?

A conventional tattoo is implanted into the skin at 3.5mm, below the exfoliating layers of the skin, whereas semi-permanent make-up is implanted at just under the 2mm depending on the area of the skin where the colour is being implanted. Other factors include the inks (pigment) which are being implanted, a permanent tattooist would use inks that contain carbon and carbon does leave the skin easily whereas semi permanent make-up artists use pigments that contain oxides which do.

How long does it last and factors that affect stability ?

Ideally semi permanent make-up can last around 18 months to 5 years , it is important that it fades out as adjustment to the make-up is needed as your client age over the years, ie, skin colour and texture change with age so the colour will need adjusting to suit the client, she may of suited a dark vibrant lip liner or black heavy eyeliner in her twenties but as she ages a more modest discreet look is more suited. Also the skin around the eyes and brows looses elasticity and drops as we age, so tails on brows needs adjusting to lift and open the eyes, creating a more youthful effect.
