4 Things You Must Know About Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment for both men and women, designed to enhance facial features and skin colour, and to disguise scars and pigmentation irregularities.

Permanent makeup (micropigmentation) is an innovative cosmetic skin care treatment that involves applying natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. When performed by a skilled esthetician, permanent makeup can enhance many facial areas, including: 

  • Lips: Add colour, definition, and shape to your mouth. Permanent makeup can also help avoid the appearance of lipstick bleeding into the fine lines around the mouth.
  • Eyebrows: If you have sparse eyebrows, this cosmetic treatment can create a full appearance and flattering shape.
  • Eyeliner: Are you tired of applying eyeliner daily? Subtly boost your eye appearance and eyelashes with permanent makeup eyeliner.
  • Areola reconstruction: After breast reconstruction, permanent makeup can be used for repigmentation of the nipple area.
  • Scars: For patients who have suffered from scars, our skin care specialists can match the affected area to surrounding skin colour for a more even complexion.
