Semi-permanent Make-up

Semi-permanent make-up is a complexion treatment to enhance eyes, brows and lips to add definition to the face.

This 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 unlike a tattoo it fades with time. The pigment is made of a natural iron oxide, which is hypo-allergic so no patch test is required.

Semi-permanent make-up procedures:

  • Eyeliner and Eyelash enhancement
  • Eyebrows
  • Lips
  • Beauty Spot

Paramedical procedures:

  • Nipple and aerola reconstruction
  • Correctional procedures
  • Scars
  • Alopecia sufferers


Beauty Spot: Semi-permanent make-up
A strategic dot for a seductive effect. Women throughout history have understood the power and mystery of the beauty spot. In 18th century Venice, women used them as a secret language: a beauty spot near the eye would mean ‘I’m irresistible’. With Cosmetech the beauty spot is so natural only you will know. Extremely popular just above the lip, or high on the cheekbone.


Eyebrow 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 youthful appearance.

The beauty pages of Vogue, Tatler or InStyle magazine offer 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 with Cosmetech technique is so precise that we can reconstruct your eyebrow shape by replicating each hair at microscopic level through the use of eyebrow tattooing. The end result is incredibly realistic and natural looking. Many of our clients, who have lost their hair for whatever reason, often become overwhelmed with their new eyebrow confidence.

“In many cases, the treatment is a fantastic confidence boost and we feel privileged to be part of that.” – Eva Mylona

Post Treatment: Semi-permanent make-up after care procedures
You may resume your normal activities straight after treatment. There may be slight swelling or redness on the area which will go down quickly. The treated area will always appear darker and more exact immediately after the treatment. This will lighten and soften over the next few days. There may be slight flaking over the area during healing.

Your semi permanent make-up may need a completion visit 4-6 weeks after initial application of pigment, to adjust shape, colour or density.

We recommend that you return to the clinic once a year. Maintenance is minimal.

Other guidelines for getting the best from your permanent makeup will be given to you after your treatment.



  • Treated area will be more exact, dark and intense when first treated.
  • The skin will take 3-7 days to return to normal.
  • It is normal to loose 1/3 of the colour during this initial period.
  • Always use a sunscreen on make-up to prevent colour change and loss.

Am I suitable for permanent makeup?
Most people are suitable for some form of permanent makeup. At Cosmetech we will discuss 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 we will discuss of your expectations around any features you wish to correct, mask or balance. This consultation allows us to recommend specific treatments we believes will achieve the effect you want and allow you to put your best face forward to the world.

How long will permanent makeup last?
Permanent Makeup can last for many years and 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?
Yes absolutely. All of the pigments used are hygienically prepared and packaged and created from natural minerals that are specifically selected for their safe, non-toxic and hypoallergenic properties. Technicians and cosmetic surgeons throughout the world trust them in everyday use; moreover, ophthalmologists actually recommend eye procedures using permanent make-up for women who are sensitive to conventional cosmetics.

Does permanent makeup hurt?
The treatment is performed with your comfort in mind and we want you to be relaxed during the procedure. F or 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?
At Cosmetech we take great care to discuss the treatment we know will enhance your face or body the way you want it to. Due to this initial in-depth personal consultation, no client has ever been unhappy 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 have 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 and designed to remove any possibility of cross contamination. Fully disposable ‘single use only’ applicator cartridges are used, for your complete safety and peace of mind.
