What is Micropigmentation or Semi-permanent makeup?
Semi-permanent makeup, also referred to as micro-pigmentation, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of long-lasting eyeliner, lip liner, or eyebrow definition. It is a technique that deposits pigment into the dermis layer of the skin to achieve the desired cosmetic effect. Micropigmentation has the potential to provide lasting results for several years, and with periodic colour touch-ups every 1-2 years, the effects can endure even longer.
While it is commonly referred to as permanent, it is important to note that not all pigment particles are guaranteed to completely disappear, although they naturally fade over time. Most people find that semi-permanent makeup lasts up to one and three years, but will likely notice the pigment start to fade after that time.
What are the most common types of semi-permanent make up?
Eyebrow tattooing: This technique involves the precise implantation of pigment into the skin to create eyebrows that appear natural. It is commonly utilised to fill in sparse or thinning eyebrow hair and to achieve the desired shape and fullness.
Semi-permanent eyeliner: By tattooing the skin around the eyes, one can enhance their appearance and simplify the process of applying makeup. This procedure can be used to create a defined cat-eye shape, fill in gaps in the lash line, achieve a long-lasting eyeliner look, or cover up any irregularities in the natural eyeliner.
Lip line tattooing and lip blush: Permanent lip makeup is a suitable choice for individuals who struggle with achieving even application of lipstick or lip gloss, or have naturally thin lips. Semi-permanent lip liners can also be employed to create the illusion of larger, more voluminous lips, resulting in a perfect pout.
Why do you need Micropigmentation and Semi-permanent makeup Insurance?
Clients may become dissatisfied with the appearance of the treatments, and given the semi-permanent nature of the procedure, any dissatisfaction with the results could be a long-term concern. Mistakes in pigment application, such as wrong colour or uneven lines, may require corrective procedures. There is also a risk that the procedures could go wrong and potentially cause harm to the client. This therefore could result in legal action, which could damage your business financially and its reputation. This is why it is essential to have insurance with us at Barry Fenton, specifically tailored for Micropigmentation and Semi-permanent makeup treatments. It can help to ensure the smooth running of your business and offers everything you need to protect yourself and your business should you face any legal problems.
