Semi-Permanent Make-Up

Semi-permanent make-up is a complexion treatment to enhance eyes, brows and lips to add definition to the face.

This technique involves injecting pigment through a fine vibrating needle into the most superficial layers of the skin. A local anaesthetic cream numbs the area pre-treatment. The colour only penetrates 0.2mm deep and unlike a tattoo it fades with time. The pigment is made of a natural iron oxide, which is hypo-allergic so no patch test is required.

Semi-permanent make-up procedures:

  • Eyeliner and Eyelash enhancement
  • Eyebrows
  • Lips
  • Beauty Spot

Paramedical procedures:

  • Nipple and aerola reconstruction
  • Correctional procedures
  • Scars
  • Alopecia sufferers

Micropigmentation of the nipple and areola complex (NAC)

This is an invasive procedure, involving needles to position non-permanent Pigments under the skin of the breast, in the shape of a nipple and areola complex.

This is performed using a local anaesthetic numbing cream. This procedure can give an illusion of an areola and nipple formation using a 3 dimensional effect. The pigments are non permanent and the result often needs to be refreshed or repeated within about 2 years following the first treatment.

This procedure is normally appropriate 3-6 months following a breast reconstruction where the nipple has been removed. The benefit of this procedure is that it may improve the aesthetic appearance of the breast, and can have a positive effect on body image. A top-up treatment is usually required 6-8 weeks after initial procedure.

A patch test will be necessary prior to treatment to assess for any reaction to the pigments. Each appointment may take approximately 2-2.5 hours.

Beauty Spot: Semi-permanent make-up

A strategic dot for a seductive effect. Women throughout history have understood the power and mystery of the beauty spot. In 18th century Venice, women used them as a secret language: a beauty spot near the eye would mean ‘I’m irresistible’. With Cosmetech the beauty spot is so natural only you will know. Extremely popular just above the lip, or high on the cheekbone.

Eyebrow Shaping: Semi-permanent make-up

Eyebrow shaping can make a huge difference to your face. Through using the correct shape and style, a great brow can help to frame your face through adding expression, warmth and depth.

When observing red carpet celebrity eyebrows, such as Megan Fox and Cheryl Cole, they have perfect definition in their eyebrow shaping. This as a result, gives them a groomed, fresh and youthful appearance.

The beauty pages of Vogue, Tatler or InStyle magazine offer endless tips on eyebrow shaping and how to define our brows. However, this advice is little use to those who have naturally sparse brows, those who have over plucked, or those who have suffered total loss through alopecia or cancer.

Eyebrow Shaping with Cosmetech technique is so precise that we can reconstruct your eyebrow shape by replicating each hair at microscopic level through the use of eyebrow tattooing. The end result is incredibly realistic and natural looking. Many of our clients, who have lost their hair for whatever reason, often become overwhelmed with their new eyebrow confidence.

“In many cases, the treatment is a fantastic confidence boost and we feel privileged to be part of that.” – Eva Mylona

Eye liner: Semi-permanent make-up

Bring an end to smudged and smeared eyeliner with a treatment from Cosmetech and the Specialist Make-Up Team.

As we all know, bright and defined eye makeup can help to create a fresh and youthful appearance. What is more, our eyes are the main focus in our body language as they show our human connection and expression.

For many women, applying eye liner to create a defined look can be a tricky or time consuming task. Many well-known makeup artists have often admitted to finding themselves applying, removing and reapply their own eye liner to remove wobbles, smudges or even fading at the end of the day.

If you wish for beautiful defined eyes then you have come to the right place.
Thankfully, Specialist Make-up Services have created a range of bespoke treatments that add sparkle to your eyes and make your lashes look thicker and eyes more defined with delicate definition and a sprinkling of colour. Our fabulous eye makeup treatments will allow you to wake up with brighter, younger, sexier eyes.

Correctional: Semi-permanent make-up

Cosmetech provide reconstructive camouflage and clinical tattooing to conceal scars and patches which could be caused Vitiligo or hair transplants etc.

Aerola Reconstruction: Semi-permanent make-up

Would you like the regain your confidence after undergoing breast reconstructive surgery? Specialist Make-Up Services are here to help you.

Our team of areola reconstruction experts regularly treat patients who have undergone mastectomy by re-pigmenting the areola to provide you with a natural appearance to the breast area.

Areola tattoo treatments create instantaneous results which provide a confidence and self-esteem boost for our clients.

Lips: Semi-permanent make-up

Mother Nature can’t bless us all with the perfect pout, which is why semi-permanent lip liner is a fabulous alternative to get full, luscious lips, without having to undergo surgical procedures.

Our lip liner treatments can replace colour lost from aging and add definition to thin lips. Through applying the correct shade of lip liner to match your complexion, as well as plumping the lip area, our lip tattoo treatments can correct any shape or symmetry concerns.

At the end of the treatment, you will be able to instantly see that Angelina Jolie-esque pout that you have always dreamt about.

After undergoing one of our fabulous treatments simply add a dab of high sheen lip gloss and your best high heels for a glamorous evening look!

Cosmetech specialist make-up services offer a range of lip-liner tattoo treatments to suit you.

Post Treatment: Semi-permanent make-up after care procedures

You may resume your normal activities straight after treatment. There may be slight swelling or redness on the area which will go down quickly. The treated area will always appear darker and more exact immediately after the treatment. This will lighten and soften over the next few days. There may be slight flaking over the area during healing.

Your semi permanent make-up may need a completion visit 4-6 weeks after initial application of pigment, to adjust shape, colour or density.

We recommend that you return to the clinic once a year. Maintenance is minimal.

Other guidelines for getting the best from your permanent makeup will be given to you after your treatment.

Some Things To Remember:

  • Treated area will be more exact, dark and intense when first treated.
  • The skin will take 3-7 days to return to normal.
  • It is normal to loose 1/3 of the colour during this initial period.
  • Always use a sunscreen on make-up to prevent colour change and loss.

Semi-Permanent Make-Up FAQs

Why have permanent makeup?

Everyone wants to look the best they can, naturally.

Think how convenient it would be to enjoy perfectly arched eyebrows, wide-awake, pretty eyes and beautifully contoured lips, without the effort of time-consuming morning and night time makeup rituals. All subtle, soft and perfectly in place with no smudging, no mess, no problem. With permanent makeup you have the confidence of knowing you look the best you can look, right round the clock.

Am I suitable for permanent makeup?

Most people are suitable for some form of permanent makeup.

At Cosmetech we will discuss with you precisely which treatments will suit you best in a one-to-one consultation. This will include an analysis of your natural skin colour and we will discuss of your expectations around any features you wish to correct, mask or balance. This consultation allows us to recommend specific treatments we believes will achieve the effect you want and allow you to put your best face forward to the world.

How long will permanent makeup last?

Permanent Makeup can last for many years and is dependent on several factors including your skin type, your annual sun exposure and lifestyle.

For these reasons, Cosmetech recommends a colour refresher treatment every twelve to eighteen months to maintain perfect results.

Is permanent makeup safe?

Yes absolutely. All of the pigments used are hygienically prepared and packaged and created from natural minerals that are specifically selected for their safe, non-toxic and hypoallergenic properties.

Technicians and cosmetic surgeons throughout the world trust them in everyday use; moreover, ophthalmologists actually recommend eye procedures using permanent make-up for women who are sensitive to conventional cosmetics.

Does permanent makeup hurt?

The treatment is performed with your comfort in mind and we want you to be relaxed during the procedure.

For this reason, an anaesthetic will be applied to the area being worked on prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort.

What if I don’t like the result?

At Cosmetech we take great care to discuss the treatment we know will enhance your face or body the way you want it to.

Due to this initial in-depth personal consultation, no client has ever been unhappy with the end result. Such care may not be universal in the industry, however, and numerous new clients have come to Cosmetech asking us to correct or improve treatments done elsewhere that have not turned out as expected or have gone wrong in some way. As in much of the cosmetic industry, it is usually the higher end of the market that will deliver the most effective results. For this reason, quality of service, comprehensive consultations and the use of high quality pigments by experienced technicians, should guide your decision rather than price alone.

Health & safety standards??

Rest assured the equipment used is the latest and most technologically advanced.

Like medical equipment, permanent cosmetic equipment is safe and designed to remove any possibility of cross contamination. Fully disposable ‘single use only’ applicator cartridges are used, for your complete safety and peace of mind.

Patient Testimonials

"I am extremely happy with the treatment, and with the standard of care I have received. There is no doubt as to whether this treatment is highly effective.

Everyone was excellent, and I mean excellent, i don't normally write congratulatory e-mails so this is high praise in my view. The Senior nurse was excellent, as was the Theatre nurse and the anaesthetist. Even the assistants that helped with catering and other duties. All came together to form a great impression of the establishment." Jason Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Kingsbridge Patient
