Renew Skin and Health Clinic welcomes people in Northampton to benefit from the advantages of semi-permanent make-up or cosmetic tattoo procedure performed by our cosmetic specialist. The two categories of a semi-permanent make-up procedure include semi-permanent make-up which is used for eyes - eyeline and lips - lip line and semi-permanent tattoo for cosmetic issues used for scar camouflage, hair simulation and areola repigmentation. Both categories are referred to as micropigmentation due to the fact that the cosmetic procedure consists in mechanically introducing a hypoallergenic pigment under the skin.

The semi-permanent make-up is used for over-plucked eyebrows and thin and rare eyelashes to create a semi-permanent eyeliner effect, or for fuller, colored lips that have a well-defined lip line, which may rquire two sessions to get the desired color. This type of make-up is great for those who have an active lifestyle and do not have the necessary time to apply or constantly retouch the regular make-up or who need a make-up that will last no matter what, for those who have difficulties in applying classical make-up or those who are allergic to it.

The semi permanent cosmetic tattoo for cosmetic issues is usually used for scar camouflage or scar concealment, areola reconstruction through repigmentation and even 3D nipples if necessary for patients who have had mastectomies or breast reconstruction surgery, and for hair simulation in hair loss sufferers, the cosmetic process implying the drawing of natural-looking hair follicles on the bald areas of the scalp or eyebrows, this especially in people dealing with alopecia, chemotherapy, hair transplants gone bad or various accidents that lead to hair loss.

Both the semi-permanent make-up and cosmetic tattoo procedures are performed for cosmetic reasons, and although minimally invasive, these treatments require a prior specialized consultation. At Renew Skin and Health Clinic, our cosmetic specialist can help you get the results that you desire, with little to no discomfort at all, although some minor swelling and redness may be present for a day or two after the procedure.

During the consultation, our specialist will help you pick the desired colors and definitions for the eyeline and lipline, or any other procedure that you may require; she will take careful measurements and draw guiding lines until you are pleased both with the colors and the definitions. The semi-permanent make-up procedure is performed under a local anesthetic so that you won’t be feeling any pain, it lasts between one and two hours and the results may resist for 2 to 5 years, this also depending on your skin type and lifestyle. Some people also call the semi permanent make-up as “permanent”, due to the extended life-span of the effects, but keep in mind that despite the fact that the pigment remains in your skin for a couple of years, it will start to wear off, and follows-ups are necessary if you want to maintain the make-up.
