What are the benefits of micropigmentation?

Micropigmentation is a cosmetic tattoo that uses a machine to implant ink pigments into the skin, commonly known as permanent makeup (PMU). It can enhance and define facial features, such as brows, lips, and eyes, providing a more polished and put-together appearance. It can also correct asymmetry or sparse areas, creating a more balanced look. 

PMU offers long-lasting results. Depending on factors such as skin type and lifestyle, results can last for several months to years before requiring touch-ups. It saves time by eliminating the need for daily makeup application and simplifies beauty routines. This can be especially advantageous for those with active lifestyles or for individuals who travel frequently. 

When performed by a skilled technician, PMU can provide natural-looking enhancements and boost confidence, which is particularly appealing for those who prefer a more understated and effortless beauty aesthetic.


THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THE TECHNIQUE USED TO IMPLANT THE PIGMENT.  Permanent Makeup uses a machine tool with a needle instead of a manual blade. It penetrates deeper into the skin layers, usually reaching the upper dermis, where the pigment remains for a longer period of time, often several years. PMU offers a better alternative for individuals with oily or sensitive skin, as microblading may not be suitable and can cause excessive irritation.


While temporary discomfort is common, it is usually manageable. Most clients describe the sensation as a scratching or pinching feeling. A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before the procedure to reduce pain. It's essential to communicate openly with your technician about your experience during the procedure. Everyone's pain tolerance level is different. We can make adjustments to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.

The longevity of PMU varies depending on factors such as skin type, products used, lifestyle, sun exposure and the characteristics of the specific area treated. Generally, micropigmentation can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years before requiring touch-up appointments to maintain the desired appearance.

How long does PMU last? While PMU is often referred to as "permanent," the pigment gradually fades over time. It is considered semi-permanent because it typically lasts for a few years before requiring touch-ups.

When performed by a qualified and experienced technician using sterile equipment and adhering to strict hygiene standards, PMU is generally considered safe. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks of adverse reactions or complications, especially if proper precautions are not taken.

We recommend a patch test test consultation to check for sensitivities, determine the most suitable products and discuss your medical history before your PMU appointment.

How should I choose a PMU technician?

It's essential to research and choose a PMU technician who is certified, experienced, and reputable. Check accreditation qualifications. Look for technicians who have a portfolio of their work, positive reviews from previous clients, and adherence to safety protocols. Schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and ensure you feel comfortable with the technician before proceeding.
