Semipermanent makeup entails applying cosmetic effects to the epidermis or the upper layer of the skin. As a result, it tends to become lighter as the skin exfoliates.

Semipermanent makeup remains in effect for 1-3 years (depending upon several factors) and fades away naturally without causing discolouration.

Semi permanent make up involves the non-invasive procedure that utilizes the specialized methods of permanent tattooing.

In these procedures, permanent medicated colour pigments are injected into the middle layer of the skin called Dermis by using microscopic injections with extra fine needles.

This process is referred to as:

Nipple and Areola Complex Tattooing

This procedure promotes acceptance of a woman’s self image, as well as closure on the breast cancer experience.

Scar Camouflage

Pigments can generally used a year after a scar has healed to match the scar to the colour of the surrounding skin by using a blending effect through cosmetic tattooing. The Precision Plus machine can also be used with a dry needling and dispersion technique, known as MCA, which relaxes the scar and can cause it to re-pigment naturally.

Cleft Lip

The appearance of a cleft lip can be dramatically improved with micro-pigmentation and lip tattoos.By creating a balanced shape and camouflaging the scars, the lip is given both definition and volume.


Once burnt skin has healed, or a year after any skin graft work, our camouflage pigments can be used to blend colour to existing skin tones.


It is possible in some cases to tattoo colour into patches of vitiligo to match existing skin tones.

Scar Relaxation And Stretch Marks

The dry needling MCA technique can offer dramatic results that are lifelong and permanent. The technique can stimulate the body’s natural collagen and melanin to repair and rejuvenate an area of trauma.
