Permanent cosmetic makeup (semi-PMU), also known as micro-pigmentation, is an aesthetic procedure similar to tattooing, designed to benefit anyone who wishes to have a natural enhancement to their appearance without the use of makeup.
It can be used for eyebrows, eyeliner above and below eyelashes, lip lines, full lip color. To produce the desired results, permanent makeup usually requires one or more touch-up procedures after initial application.
Those who are extremely physically active but want to maintain a better appearance can do so with permanent makeup.
It is especially beneficial for people who suffer from makeup allergies and can’t wear traditional cosmetics.
The most obvious benefit of semi-PMU for people with busy schedules is that it can simply save you time.
People with physical disabilities or impaired motor skills, such as arthritis, Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis, may want permanent makeup because it's difficult for them to apply makeup themselves.
People with poor eyesight may invest in permanent makeup for the same reasons.
Do not schedule an appointment prior to major events, such as a vacation, wedding, social outing, etc.
