Semi-permanent makeup which is technically referred to as micropigmentation is a procedure where particles of inert iron oxide pigments are implanted into the dermal layers of the skin. This procedure which is used to enhance facial features such as eyebrows or lips, is achieved with the use of specialist equipment. The equipment incorporates a single use disposable needle which penetrates the skin in what is basically a tattooing process. The implantation depth varies approximately between 1mm and 2mm according to which facial features are enhanced. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour and topical anaesthetic cream is applied to make it more comfortable.
The effects of semi-permanent makeup can remain in the skin between one and three years and sometimes longer.
