What is Permanent Makeup Used For?

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, is a revolutionary method of applying natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. It can be used to enhance many facial areas including:


Permanent makeup can be used for enhanced shape, definition and color of your lips. It can also help avoid the appearance of lipstick bleed into the fine lines around the mouth.


Opt for a eyebrow permanent makeup treatment for a full appearance and flattering shape that doesn’t have to be reapplied daily.


Subtly boost your eyelashes and appearance with permanent makeup eyeliner.

Areola Reconstruction

After breast reconstruction, a permanent makeup treatment can be used for repigmentation of the nipple area.


For patients who have suffered from scars, burns or vitiligo, our skin care specialists can match scars or areas of lost pigmentation to surrounding skin color.


Who Can Benefit From Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is a skin care treatment that is growing in popularity and can have many benefits for both male and female patients.

Those who can benefit most from this cosmetic procedure are patients who have:

  • Allergies to conventional makeup
  • Busy schedules/active lifestyles
  • Physical limitations (e.g. arthritis, vision problems, multiple sclerosis) which make it hard to apply makeup
  • Contact lenses
  • Asymmetrical facial features
  • Cleft lips
  • Skin flaws (e.g. burns, birthmarks etc)
  • Certain jobs (e.g athletes or nurses)

However, before deciding on a permanent makeup procedure, it’s important to speak to a skin care specialist as they can discuss your aesthetic goals, unique skin type and circumstances to determine whether this is a safe and appropriate treatment for you.

4 Things You Should Know About Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup, when applied by a qualified professional, is a safe and effective procedure that will enhance your appearance and boost your self-confidence.

However, like all skin care and cosmetic treatments, it’s best to fully understand the procedure before deciding whether or not it is right for you.

Here are 4 things you should know about permanent makeup before you take the plunge:

Find the right technician

When finding an artist for your permanent makeup procedure, it’s important to find an artist that has the right technique, skill & experience to provide a safe procedure & beautiful, long-lasting results.

Permanent makeup results are long lasting

While the amount of time permanent makeup will stay fresh varies from patient to patient, your results could last anywhere between 2-5 years without a touch-up.

The color is brighter immediately after the treatment

Immediately after your procedure, the color of your makeup will look darker for up to a week. As the skin heals, it will become lighter and after 4 weeks, the final color will appear.

Mostly anyone can benefit from permanent makeup

Men and women of all ages and ethnicities can benefit from this treatment. However, permanent makeup is NOT recommended for those who are:

  • Pregnant/breastfeeding
  • Undergoing cancer treatments
  • Currently on Accutane
