    The Art of Micropigmentation and semi permanent makeup

    by Candice Watson, Exclusive Aesthetic

    In the early years of cosmetic micropigmentation makeup procedures were often permanent as body art tattoo machines and pigments were used. Micropigmentation has evolved at a vast rate since to what is now called Semi Permanent Makeup.

    PMU or SPMU?

    Micropigmentation professionals in the UK, Europe and USA use the term Permanent Makeup (PMU); however, now permanent makeup is the same process as the more modern name, Semi Permanent Makeup (SPMU).

    Both SPMU and PMU, if performed correctly, use ultra-fine needles capable of finer than hair stroke thickness lines to implant pharmaceutical pigments into the upper dermal layer of the skin. Pigments should be semi permanent lasting between 2 and 3 years depending on exposure to the sun and UV rays. We recommend a refresher session every 12 to 18 months to keep the pigment looking fresh.

    Micropigmentation machines should be digital, allowing the speed to be adjusted and fine-tuned for use on the delicate areas of the face.

    Using the correct equipment goes a long way to achieving good results; however, the technician also plays a massive part in the final result. Seeking out a technician who is trained to the highest level in most ways ensures your semi permanent makeup treatment looks as you expected. Remember semi permanent makeup is essentially a tattoo, the process is the same, and only the pigment is semi permanent. We implant the pigment shallower than traditional permanent body art tattoos allowing the pigment to expel over a few years. If embedded too deep then there is a strong possibility the pigment will be permanent, resulting in the horror stories of eyebrows turning blue and green we have all heard.

    When deciding where to have your SPMU treatments remember cheap is not best when applying procedures to your face that could last up to 5 years. In the Middle East, Micropigmentation procedures last for 2 to 3 years due to the intensity of the sun. We recommend a top-up treatment 12 to 18 months after the initial course of treatments to ensure the pigment looks fresh.

    What our clients say

    I was recommended Candice by a friend who had her eyebrows done with Candice. I was no confident I could pass the course, but Candice guided me to believe in myself and practised the techniques Candice taught me, and I’m happy to say, I passed and got my certificate!




    I have just completed my semi permanent makeup diploma trained by Candice. Candice is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. I would not have passed without her expert tuition.




    I wanted Microblading, but then when I spoke to Candice, I was told the results I wanted were only achievable with Micropigmentation. Candice is an expert at sculpting the perfect eyebrows, and I am so pleased with the result.




    Candice has many years of experience and advises on the eyebrow look, shape and colour. I love my eyebrows and will always recommend Candice.
