Micropigmentation refers to the specialist techniques used to create a kind of semi-permanent make-up.
This procedure can simply be described as minute particles of coloured pigment being placed mechanically below the surface of the skin, much like a tattoo. The most frequently requested procedures are permanent colour to the eyebrows, top and bottom eyeliner shading, lip liner and full lips/lip blend, beauty spot and freckle treatments. Although the treatment fades after approximately 2 - 4 years, some colour will remain to a greater or lesser degree.
This treatment can also be used in a medical capacity to correct scarred or discoloured skin following accident, surgery or disease, such as the recreation of an areola (the brown area surrounding the nipple) following reconstructive surgery for breast cancer. It can also be used to create eyebrows lost through alopecia or cancer treatments
The cost of micropigmentation can vary from approx. £75 for beauty spots, to £300 - £500 for eyebrows, top eyeliner and bottom eyeliner and £500 for lip liner.
