The semi-permanent make-up and semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo is a good solution for covering up scars. The process resembles that of tattooing; the main difference is that the pigment is injected at a shallower depth, penetrating only the upper layers of the dermis. The pigments used for this cosmetic process are generally made of pure, inorganic minerals that are hypoallergenic, emollient-free and fragrance-free, leading to a long-lasting effect of over 3 years, this time period being possibly influenced by general health, skin care, exposure to the sun and other harmful factors and individual body chemistry.
The main disadvantages the semi-permanent make-up or semi permanent cosmetic tattoo for scar camouflage presents are: if the procedure is done incorrectly, it can lead to a larger or more visible scar, or if the medical equipment used is not sterilized properly it can lead to an infection and the removal may prove to be very difficult, if the ink used for the semi permanent cosmetic tattooing is of a substandard quality, it can cause further irritation, but all these can be avoided by performing previous tests and by undergoing a thorough prior consultation.
