Cosmetic Tattoo (Micro-pigmentation)
Cosmetic micro-pigmentation is the tattooing of eyebrows, eyeliner and lips or lip-liner to create long-lasting cosmetic makeup. It has numerous benefits particularly if you have lost your brows and lashes due to alopecia or chemotherapy, or if your brows have simply become sparse or faded.
A lack of eyebrows has an ageing effect and can give a tired, washed-out appearance. Cosmetic micro-pigmentation of eyebrows will give your face colour, definition and structure and a more groomed “complete” look.
Cosmetic micro-pigmentation is ideal if you:
- find it hard to see to apply your makeup
- want makeup that won’t smudge off
- want to be free of daily makeup application
- have undergone chemotherapy
- have alopecia
Micro-pigmentation or Cosmetic Tattooing is different to traditional body tattooing. It is long-lasting but not permanent. With micro-pigmentation the pigments will fade over time depending on various factors, including the health of the skin, UV exposure, the skin’s ability to absorb the pigment, and the colour of the pigments used. The fading period may take anything from 1-5 years before a touch-up is required. For patients for whom micro-pigmentation is not an ideal solution, we can also provide Eyebrow Wigs.
