What is PMU (Permanent Makeup)?

Permanent Make Up is a technique that applies permanent pigment into the dermis (skin) that allows a desired look to be achieved that resembles makeup. It can also be used to hide scars (not every type) or help with an uneven hairline. This is preformed under a sterile environment.

Permanent makeup uses iron oxides that pigments the skin. This pigmentation can last between 1-5 years. The pigment will gradually fade over time, however for most people it will not fade completely. ‘Touch ups’ of permanent makeup are advised usually within 1 to 3 months in order to achieve desired results.

With every treatment there are risks involved. It is important that you understand the risks prior to undergoing treatment. Ensuring you provide a full medical history can reduce these risks but even so there may be unforeseen risks that are presented. If you have any concerns regarding these risks, do not hesitate to contact your Healthcare Professional.
