Semi Permanent Make-up

Semi-permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, is a form of temporary cosmetic tattooing which allows you to have long-lasting semi-permanent eyeliner and lipstick as well as being able to shape and contour your eyebrows and provide your face with an overall light glow or blush.  Our fully trained, insured and licensed semi-permanent makeup artist can perform these treatments at our clinic in Chelmsford, Essex.

The cosmetic-tattoo industry is evolving – traditional tattooing made a solid block of colour lasting over 10 years. Now, the industry uses topical methods to apply a new generation of organic pigments that fade quicker and allow clients to alter the colour or shape every 12 to 18 months.

From Semi-Permanent Eyebrows to Eyeliner, Lipstick and Blush, we have it all!

 

Our therapist performs tattooing for semi-permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, lipstick and blusher alongside eyebrow microblading.  
 
A 30-minute consultation with a patch test is required before treatment can happen. In the consultation, we will cover your medical history, the area to be treated, and what you are looking to achieve. We will study your skin’s colour undertones, blood flow and overall health. This helps us choose a colour that will look natural on your face.  
 
Many clients want the natural look - this is exclusive to our experienced and talented technician. We will work with you to determine if what you want is the best option for you.  
 
Firstly, our technician will let you know these techniques are suitable for your skin. Very thin or brittle skin will not heal well from microblading. Please note, clients with thickened skin may not be able to have tattooing done. 
 
Our technician is fully qualified in cosmetic tattooing or SPMU as well as tattooing. These are two different techniques that allow her to ensure our clients are given her full knowledge, skill and experience in both fields.  
 
Safety and Hygiene are of paramount importance with these treatments - both our technician and our premises are licensed with Chelmsford City Council for these treatments. A compulsory yearly audit is carried out, covering health and safety, infection control and hygiene checks. We must comply with these checks to retain our licensing. Standard requirement of our licensing is that between each client, the floors, couch, and areas of use including equipment within the treatment room are green-soaped and sterilised consistently. 

Any time the skin is opened, there is a risk of infection. Any tattoo, whether artistic or cosmetic, requires skill and precision when using the needles. We adhere to stringent protocols to ensure the safety of all clients.       
 
Thanks to numbing creams, most clients say tattooing and microblading feel like very light scratching (please note, with microblading, you can hear the blade cutting the skin). Brows should be kept dry for at least two days after the treatment. Do not panic if they look too dark at first – colour fades as they heal, and results last for approximately a year to two years with tattooing, and a year to 18 months with microblading. 

 
Tattooing for Semi-Permanent Makeup
This is where our technician uses a hand held needle SMPU tattooing device that finely inserts ink into the skin in a tapping motion.  This movement forces the pigment into the skin creating the defined look of the tattoo.  The hand held device uses disposable needles which are changed between each client and click and lock ink cartridges which can only flow into the needles not back up.  
 
Semi-Permanent Eye-Liner Microblading
Our technician uses a fine purpose made microblade to make a fine slice into the skin to open it and place pigment beneath to produce the tattoo.  When this cut heals, when done correctly, it creates a thin, crisp line that mimics the natural look and texture of hair. Due to the nature of pigment insertion, a lot of pigment cannot be forced into the skin, leading to a shorter lifespan than more traditional tattooing methods.  

 

Micro-feathering can be done with microblading wherein it mimics natural hair so gaps and sparsely covered areas can be filled in resulting in a very natural look, also Ombre can be done with microblading where the brow is slightly more faded towards the front of the face and sharper towards the arch to add depth. 
 
Eyebrow Microblading
There are various looks to be achieved with two ways of creating semi-permanent eyebrows: tattooing and eyebrow microblading. Popular looks include:


​Hair-Stroke or Feathered Brows: This is the closest to microblading, but it has been around much longer. Typically the hair strokes, once healed, will not be as fine or as crisp as the microbladed brows, but it still creates a natural, soft look and has a much longer longevity.

Soft or Powdered Brows: This look is similar to the look most women get when filling in their eyebrows with powdered make-up. This technique is great for women who want a lot of fullness to their brow colour.
 
Hard or Crisp Eyebrow: This is typically what people think of when they think “tattooed eyebrows.” It is an eyebrow with a sharp, defined line. It is typically the most distinct and artificial-looking brow. It produces a look more like an eyebrow pencil or marker.


Lashes

While semi-permanent eyeliner is popular, the latest trend is to have tiny micro-droplets of pigment nestled in between each lash to give the appearance of thick, fluttery lashes. “It creates undetectable definition for your eyes.  The tattoo machine used is incredibly gentle. It uses light vibrations, so feels more like an electric toothbrush but your eyes may feel sore afterwards and need to be kept dry for at least 48 hours afterwards.

Semi-Permanent Lipstick

Replacing lip’s lost border gives a more youthful appearance. Semi-permanent Lipstick is a great way to create the illusion of a fuller pout without injections, while leaving a beautiful hue so you don't need lipstick. Semi-permanent lip blushes get their name from using a dark shade around the lip line blended with a softer shade in the middle with almost no colour in the centre. Expect tenderness afterwards but aftercare is minimal: refrain from touching lips and regularly apply an antiseptic cream.  Our trained technician will colour match with you at your consultation.

This is generally a very comfortable treatment as it’s superficial micro-needling however some tightness and tingling after treatment is totally normal.  You can go back to day to day life however the BB Glow serums that look like a foundation should be left on the skin for 24 hours.  Powder make up can be added after 6 hours.  Your skin may feel a little dry a few days after treatment this is the skins natural inflammatory response to micro-needling.  This is a great standalone treatment especially for a one-off event or a weekend away however for long term results lasting up to 4 months we recommend building up coverage over a course of 3-4 treatments a month apart.
