PERMANENT makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs  permanent pigmentation of the dermis as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup and other permanent enhancing colours to the skin of the face, lips and eyelids.

One of the newest additions to the cosmetic world is "permanent make-up" also referred to as micro pigmentation. It benefits women with poor vision, allergies to makeup and watery eyes.


The process of micro pigmentation: we penetrate through the epidermal layer using a needle that inserts the pigments. This layer of cells changes every few weeks, so this technique will gradually fade but can last up till about four years. Unlike a tattoo which uses a needle that penetrates the layer of the sub cuts, the layer we penetrate has no regeneration of the pigment cells so hair simulation can last for a longer time.


The cause of vitiligo is not known. Vitiligo may be an auto-immune disease. These diseases happen when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. It is also possible that one or more genes may make a person more likely to get the disorder.
Some researchers think that the melanocytes destroy themselves.
Others think that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress can cause vitiligo.
