Semi-permanent Make-up is complexion treatment to enhance eyes, brows and lips to add definition to the face.
The technique involves injecting pigment through a fine vibrating needle into the most superficial layers of the skin. A local anaesthetic cream numbs the area pre-treatment. The colour only penetrates 0.2mm deep and fades with time – unlike a tattoo. The pigment is made of a natural iron oxide, which is hypo-allergic so no patch test is required.
Semi-permanent Make-up Procedures
Eye Brow Shaping: Semi-permanent make-up
Eyebrow shaping can make a huge difference to your face. Through using the correct shape and style, a great brow can help to frame your face through adding expression, warmth and depth.
When observing red carpet celebrity eyebrows, such as Megan Fox and Cheryl Cole, they have perfect definition in their eyebrow shaping. This as a result, gives them a groomed, fresh and full youth appearance.
The beauty pages of Vogue, Tatler or InStyle magazine give endless tips on eyebrow shaping and how to define our brows. However, this advice is little use to those who have naturally sparse brows, those who have over plucked, or those who have suffered total loss through alopecia or cancer.
Eyebrow Shaping and Tattooing is so precise that we can reconstruct your eyebrow shape by replicating each hair at microscopic level. The end result is realistic and natural.
Eye liner: Semi-permanent make-up
Bring an end to smudged and smeared eyeliner.
As we all know, bright and defined eye makeup can help to create a fresh and youthful appearance. What is more, our eyes are the main focus in our body language as they show our human connection and expression.
For many women, applying eye liner to create a defined look can be a tricky or time consuming task. Many well-known makeup artists have often admitted to finding themselves applying, removing and reapply their own eye liner to remove wobbles, smudges or even fading at the end of the day.
Thankfully Cosmetech have a range of bespoke treatments that add sparkle to your eyes and make your lashes look thicker and eyes more defined with delicate definition and a sprinkling of colour. Our fabulous eye makeup treatments will allow you to wake up with brighter, younger, sexier eyes.

Am I suitable for permanent makeup?
Most people are suitable for some form of permanent makeup. At Cosmetech we explore with you precisely which treatments will suit you best in a one-to-one consultation. This will include an analysis of your natural skin colour and a discussion of any features you wish to correct, mask or balance. This consultation allows us to recommend specific treatments to achieve the effect you want.
How long will Permanent Makeup last?
Permanent Makeup can last for many years but is dependent on several factors including your skin type, your annual sun exposure and lifestyle.
For these reasons, Cosmetech recommends a colour refresher treatment every twelve to eighteen months to maintain perfect results.
Is Permanent Makeup safe?
Absolutely. All the pigments we use are hygienically prepared and packaged from natural minerals that are specifically selected for their safe, non-toxic and hypoallergenic properties.
Does Permanent Makeup hurt?
The treatment is performed with your comfort in mind and we want you to be relaxed during the procedure. For this reason, an anaesthetic will be applied to the area being worked on prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort.
What if I don’t like the result?
We take great care to discuss the treatments before starting this has led to all our clients being happy with the end result.
Such care may not be universal in the industry however, and numerous new clients have come to Cosmetech asking us to correct or improve treatments done elsewhere that have not turned out as expected or gone wrong in some way.
As in much of the cosmetic industry, it is usually the higher end of the market that will deliver the most effective results. For this reason quality of service, comprehensive consultations and the use of high quality pigments by experienced technicians, should guide your decision rather than price alone.
Health & safety standards?
Rest assured the equipment used is the latest and most technologically advanced. Like medical equipment, permanent cosmetic equipment is safe by design against cross contamination. Fully disposable ‘single use only’ applicator cartridges are used, for your complete safety and peace of mind.
