How long will semi-permanent makeup last?

Semi-permanent makeup treatments are intended to last for several years. However, there are several factors which affect the length of time semi-permanent makeup treatments last, including skin type, exposure to the sun and your all round lifestyle.

Although long term, one of the many benefits of semi-permanent makeup treatments are that they don’t last forever. This means that whether you want the same style or a different look, your semi-permanent makeup will need to be re-applied over time. Top-ups are recommended every 18 months to 2 years.

Is semi-permanent makeup the same as having a tattoo?

Semi-permanent makeup differs from having a tattoo as the pigments are not applied as deep into the skin with a standard tattoo.

Finally, semi-permanent makeup involves the application of an anaesthetic cream, meaning the procedure is more comfortable for the client.
