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.
The term Permanent Make Up (PMU) is widely used in the UK, Europe and USA however now permanent makeup is the same process as the more modern name, semi permanent makeup (SPMU). Both, 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 5 years depending on exposure to the sun and UV rays. 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 huge part in the end 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 basically a tattoo, the process is the same, only the pigment is semi permanent and is implanted shallower than traditional permanent body art tattoos allowing the pigment to be expelled over a few years. If implanted too deep then there is a strond possibility the pigment will be permanent and result in the horror stories of eyebrows turning blue and green we have all heard about.
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. Procedures in the Middle East last for 2 – 3 years due to the intensity of the sun. We recommend a top up treatment 12 – 18 months after the initial course of treatments to ensure the pigment looks fresh.
