The Art of Semi Permanent Makeup

The Art of 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.

The term Permanent Makeup (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 3 years depending on exposure to the sun and UV rays. However, 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 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 strong 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.

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!

Debbie - Dubai

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.

Mary Ann - Dubai

I wanted Microblading but then when I spoke to Candice I was told that I actually wanted Micropigmentation. Candice is a true expert at sculpting the perfect eyebrows and I am so pleased with the result.

Maggie - Dubai

Candice is the obvious choice for perfect eyebrows. She has many years of experience and advises on the shape and colour. I love my eyebrows and will always recommend Candice.
