is Semi-Permanent Make-up?
is a tattooing technique that allows the redrawing of facial features for the
eyebrows, eyes or mouth. It is done with an electric pen and a sterile needle
with natural pigments that are “tattooed” under the top layers of skin (between
the dermis and the epidermis). As the deep layers of skin are not involved, the
pigmentation is temporary. It will take 2 years for the design to disappear,
although this may vary from person to person. This temporary aspect allows an
adjustment of the design to the morphology of the face as it changes with age.
is a question all customers ask themselves… I am not going to say that it is
pleasant but wouldn’t call it painful either, it is bearable. It all depends on
the area being worked on: for instance, the eyelid is more sensitive than the

doesn’t look natural?
is the second main fear of our customers. I’m fighting the caricatures:
Semi-Permanent Make-up today is nothing like it was many years ago! Gone are
the highly contrasted lip contour, very thick eyeliner or eyebrows completely
filled in like a marker pen…The techniques and the demand has evolved. Today,
the trend is for very discrete and natural make-up.
the eyebrows, does all the hair have to be epilated?
We leave a maximum of the hair to give relief. That makes it look most natural.
"All the designs we create are unique and adapted to the facial features."
there a risk of allergy? Contraindications?
have never encountered any cases of allergy, but for safety, a test may be done
before the pigmentation. It is important to note that we work with natural
pigments of vegetable or mineral origin and that the device used is loaded with
a single-use sterile needle.
may be slight swelling that lasts for up to 48 hours, particularly around the
eyes. But this is the exception.
the other hand, Semi-Permanent Make-up is not recommended for diabetics,
haemophiliacs, anyone taking anticoagulants, as well as people suffering from
an autoimmune or progressive disease except with medical advice to the
contrary. People prone to herpes should take their usual treatment recommended
by their doctor for 2 weeks beforehand. In fact, an outbreak of herpes on the
day itself will result in postponement of the session.
a general rule, for any hesitation relating to the aforementioned medical
problems, we recommend seeking medical advice prior to implantation.
long does it take to do the make-up?
takes about 2 hours including the morphological study of the face, the pencil
outline and finally, the pigmentation work, as all the designs we create are
unique and adapted to the facial features. A touch-up should also be planned
within 15 days (included in the price). In fact, the skin will naturally reject
the pigments during the first 5 to 6 days. We will also provide retouching at a
preferential rate in the 2 years following initial pigmentation.
colours are used?
range of colours is broad and each profile will be able to find the corresponding
shade. The colour chosen will depend on the customer’s taste, their natural
pigmentation, their natural hair colour, the area to be treated, the desired
result, etc. All within the aim of achieving a transparent and natural result.

activities of the sauna or steam room type and exposure to the sun is prohibited
for 3 weeks following implantation.
the event of hair loss, for instance following chemotherapy or alopecia areata,

work in a completely different way and the support will be more particular. Medical
agreement is required.
