Guide and advice for the achievement of semi-permanent makeup

What is semi-permanent makeup?

It is a revolutionary method of inserting small amounts of mineral pigment -specially created for the semi-permanent makeup- into the dermal layer of the skin using an electric tool with a sterile single use needle to place pigmented granules beneath the upper layers of the skin.

Is it a Tattoo?

No. Even if the techniques are similar, the authorised pigments are different and limited since they are used on the face.
The insertion of minerals pigments is not as deep compared to a tattoo since they are targeting the upper layers of the skin.

How long would a semi-permanent makeup last?

Different factors affect how long a semi-permanent makeup lasts: not only the quality of the pigments used, but also sun exposure, sun protection used as well as skin regeneration that varies from one person to another.
On an average, it lasts between 2 to 4 years, however, it can get lighter over time and correct with a simple touch up.

Is it painful?

The sensitivity to the procedure varies from one person to another. It can cause some discomfort that disappears as soon as the procedure is finished, although, often not anywhere near the pain the person was anticipating.
Luckily, there are now many creams that can be prescribed by your doctor so the technician can use that to reduce any discomfort from the procedure.

Are there any contraindication?

Yes, there are:

We will need you doctor authorisation to process a semi-permanent make up for the following cases:

  • If you have a cardiac prosthesis.
  • In case of renal failure
  • Diabetes
  • Auto immune diseases
  • Any dermatological disease
  • Allergies to metals


You might have to go through a treatment prior to have a semi-permanent makeup in the following cases:

  • Herpes
  • Conjunctivitis

Any possibility of not being satisfied?

No, because the performance takes place only after your agreement following a thorough study of your morphology and a preliminary tracing to highlight the features of your face while respecting your opinion.

What are the safety and hygiene protocols?

The material used for each procedure is one-time use: sterile needles, gloves, wells and pigments are prepared in front of each client.

Would be presentable the same day or the next day?

In most cases, yes, because they are only small superficial lesions.

However, for sensitive and very sensitive skins, redness and a slight swelling can persist up to 24h.

In terms of colour, there is a loss of 20% intensity after 4 days proceeding.

Before the procedure:

Hydrate your skin and put aesthetic cream if you wish.

Avoid the following 48h before the procedure the following:

  • Dyeing the concerned area
  • Scrubbing or peeling
  • Sun exposure
  • Application of a fruit acid-based treatment cream
  • Taking aspirin or anticoagulants

After the procedure:

The pigmented area should be cleaned with clean washed hands, disinfect and apply a healing cream.

For the eyeliner, cold compresses are sufficient until complete healing.

  • Keep hydrated

  • Do not rub wound healing
