Is semi-permanent makeup really permanent?
In short, yes and no. Micropigmentation, also known as semi-permanent makeup (SPMU) and permanent makeup (PMU), is an art form of cosmetic tattooing. It's designed to look and heal like makeup and lasts between 2 - 5 years. However, the initial elected colour will fade over time and indefinite particles of the pigment will always remain in the skin's epidermis. It is not the same art as body tattooing with ink, which is truly permanent.
Micropigmentation is the cosmetic term for long-lasting, professionally applied makeup. Using specialised pigments, it's usually applied to create digital, nano-embellished eyebrows with natural looking hair replications, or an ombré effect, sophisticated eyeliner and stunning lip colour enhancements.
Using a medical-grade digital device gives incredible results which can last anywhere from approximately 12 to 18 months and at times longer. It's perfect for brows, eyeliner and lip colour enhancements. The ability to use various types of specialised needles with the digital device means that delicate techniques can be applied, and hygienic, realistic makeup results can be created.
