The semi-permanent cosmetic make-up or cosmetic tattoo has become more prevalent in the past 15 years, and despite the fact that most people resort to it in order to enhance their natural features, because they do not have the patience or the time or even because they cannot apply classical make-up for different reasons, the semi-permanent cosmetic make-up is also used in order to cover up cosmetic issues such as hair loss or to cover up scars, and people who need it, can now benefit from it at our Renew Skin and Health Clinic with the help of our fully qualified and experienced specialist.

In areas where there is hair loss, the semi-permanent cosmetic make-up or semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo is used for hair simulation. The procedure is customized to fit skin tone and hair texture. This is used to restore thinning hair lines, bald spots, alopecia, accident scars, chemotherapy, tricotillamania skin grafts, etc. In order to simulate the naturally growing hair, a highly skilled cosmetic tattooing process is used to produce a realistic simulation of hair in the scalp.

This semi-permanent cosmetic make-up is also referred to as cosmetic tattoo, but hair follicle simulation and scar concealment is different than a traditional tattooing technique, due to the fact that it is a semi-permanent treatment which does not go as deep as the traditional tattooing process and which will have to be enhanced every few years in order to maintain the natural look, the needles used are exclusively “micro” needles and the pigments are less invasive, inorganic and hypoallergenic, unlike the traditional tattooing pigments.

At Renew Skin and Health Clinic, our cosmetic specialist will first perform a specialized consultation in order to choose the pigment, and prior to its application your skin will be pre-treated with an exfoliation treatment in order to remove dead skin and soften the scars. The semi-permanent cosmetic make-up procedure lasts between one and two hours and multiple sessions may be necessary for you to obtain the desired results.

Straight after the procedure, the treated area will be darker and possibly red and swollen, but it will go back to normal in a matter of days. As stated before though, the semi-permanent cosmetic make-up and cosmetic tattoo treatment lasts for up to 5 years and in time the pigment will wear off so, if you want to maintain the full hair appearance and to keep your scar camouflage effect, you might want to do a follow up after. There are cases in which a repigmentation process is necessary once a year, this depending on your skin type, lifestyle and various other factors that have a regular impact on your skin, such as sun exposure.
