Micro-Pigmentation, semi-permanent make up
What is semi permanents makeup/ micropigmentation?
The specialist technique we use to create semi-permanent make-up is often referred to as micro-pigmentation. This involves placing tiny particles of coloured pigment just below the surface of the skin, a machine is used, not unlike a tattoo machine.
These pigments are made from minerals. As natural substances, they rarely cause any allergic reaction. Despite this, you must have a patch test at least 24 hours before you undergo any semi-permanent makeup with the beauticians at our clinic in Chessington. This helps to make absolutely sure there are no issues in your case.
We would advise not using any beauty salons in Chessington or anywhere else that do not ask you in for a patch test prior to a procedure. We also recommend that you ask about hygiene to be sure of reducing the chance of infection. Good beauticians will be able to reassure you of their dedication to cleanliness.
As experienced and highly-qualified beauticians, we ensure that our semi-permanent makeup procedures are safe and clean. The most popular procedures at our Chessington salon are the application of colour to the eyebrows, top and bottom eyeliner shading, beauty spots, full lip blends and lip liner.
How long will my semi-permanent makeup last?
You will have a top up appointment 6/8 weeks after your first treatment, this is included in the price of the treatment Although the colouring from the treatment will fade after 2 to 4 years, some colour will remain. Some people like to return for a top up appointment each year to keep the shape and colour sharp. It is hard to predict in individual cases how long your semi-permanent makeup it will last but if you follow aftercare advice you will not need a top up appointment for 18 months to 2 years.
What can I expect from my semi-permanent makeup appointment?
You will be required come in for a consultation and skin test at least 48 hours prior to your appointment and we will discuss your treatment fully. We will ask details about your medical history to ensure this is the correct treatment for you and discuss after care requirements.
The effect of micro-pigmentation is similar to that of a tattoo as the new pigment is deposited just below the surface of the skin in its dermal layer. For this reason, it is likely there will be a small amount of peeling and scabbing while the area heals. It will not hinder your work or life in general. Initially the colour will be dark and as the area heals it will become lighter and softer.
