What is permanent make-up or micropigmentation?
Micropigmentation or permanent make-up (PMU) is the revolutionary method of depositing hypoallergenic mineral pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. With an ultra-thin needle and pigment, the shape of the eyebrows, eyes or lips is enhanced. Micropigmentation is also known as permanent make-up or cosmetic tattooing. It is sometimes wrongly confused with cosmetic tattoos (e.g. eyebrow tattoos or eyeliner tattoos). However, the pigments used for permanent make-up are introduced less deeply into the skin layer and have a different composition from tattoo inks. Micropigmentation devices are also more refined than tattoo machines, and the techniques that are used are different.

Permanent make-up allows you to subtly give features shape and definition to enhance natural beauty. Besides boosting self-confidence, micropigmentation can also lead to a more active lifestyle, personal freedom and save quite a bit of time on make-up application. In addition, micropigmentation procedures have a stunning smudge-free effect that will last for several years. PMU is also very suitable for people with allergies to regular make-up, contact lens wearers with sensitive eyes, people with glasses or people who are active in sports.
