Micropigmentation
Micropigmentation

Makeup helps us look good, and for some it helps to correct skin issues like thinning eyebrows. These days, makeup doesn’t need to be temporary, applied day in and day out. 

 

Micropigmentation, or semi-permanent make-up could make your life that little bit easier. This is a very specialised technique that we provide in line with our very high standards. Vegetable dye is implanted into the skin to create long-lasting definition of eyebrows, eyeliner, beauty spots and lip liner.

Having worked in psychiatry, I’m constantly surprised by how effective cosmetic medicine is at making people look better and feel better.

About

We use a specialised machine and disposable needles in order to implant the colour into your skin with precision. It’s a delicate undertaking that will be performed in the most sterile conditions, in order to guarantee the result you are looking for. We can achieve beautiful results with our micropigmentation procedure – and there are many benefits to take into account when considering the treatment:

  • No more pencil required
  • You will save time on make-up application every day
  • Sparse lashes can look fuller and more luscious
  • Brows can become more even in shape and colour
  • It won’t smudge if you perspire, or rub away when you wash your face
Treatment

Micropigmentation is mildly uncomfortable, but numbing cream will help to reduce the discomfort – and the results are well worth it. Colours will be carefully chosen and blended to find the perfect match for you – resulting in a natural look that will illuminate your eyes and shape your eyebrows.

Treatment will take 30 to 60 minutes, and it may be necessary to re-treat the area 2 to 4 weeks after the original treatment due to initial colour fade. 30–50% of people will experience some fade to start with – but, after the second treatment, it should last from 2 to 5 years, depending on your skin type and chosen colour.
