Dermapigmentation is also known as Permanent Make-Up, Micropigmentation, Permanent Cosmetics, Intradermal Cosmetics, and Pigmentation of the Dermis. It is defined as the result of art and inspiration. This is a great definition, but it is important to be aware that this "art" must be bound by ethical and professional norms and implies both theoretical and practical knowledge. Dermapigmentation techniques require a strong knowledge of Anatomy, Skin Physiology and Pathology, Color Use and Theory, Face Morphology, etc.

The dermapigmentation procedure is long-lasting, but not actually "permanent", since the implantation is performed on a subepidermal, as opposed to intraepidermal, level. Vegetal, natural and hypoallergenic pigments are used, meaning that they do not cause any reaction on the skin.


What is dermapigmentation or permanent makeup?

Dermapigmentation or Permanent MakeUp is a cosmetic tattoo, a procedure consisting on the implantation of pigments into the first layer of the skin –the dermis– in order to create a cosmeticaesthetic effect.

How painful is the application?

The amount of discomfort varies from one person to another, because not all skins react in the same way. I use three different types of topical anesthetic creams for your convenience. Some people may experience a certain amount of discomfort –this depends on their pain tolerance and anesthetic resistance levels, but also on how careful the technician performing the procedure is.

How long does the procedure take?

The amount of time required depends on the complexity of the procedure, but is usually between 1 and 2 hours on average.

How long does it last?

The treatment is permanent, does not disappear, depends on the skin, and usually needs retouching after two or three years. Avoiding the use of tanning lotions and glycolic acids (fruit acids, usually found in tanning lotions, cleaning products and some creams) helps dermapigmentation procedures last longer.

Is the procedure safe?

YES, the procedure is performed in compliance with strict sterilization norms. All materials are pre-sterilized, individually packed and sealed, and only disposable materials are used.

How long does the recovery take?

It takes between four and six days, and –if necessary– a retouch is performed after 25 days, when the skin is back to normal

Can I still use regular make-up?

Absolutely; the procedure will highlight your make-up.

What if I want to change the color of my hair?

That won't be a problem with eyeliner or pigmented lips, and the colors used for the eyebrows are chosen to match your skin and hair type, so any style you choose will look perfectly natural in case you want to change.

What colors are available?

More than 20 natural tones can be combined to create your own, unique color.


Careful and adequate follow up is needed to achieve the best results. Bear in mind that, occasionally, the color might be somehow uneven, which is why it is important to follow up to get it retouched.

  • To reduce swelling, ice might be applied covered in gauze, if necessary. Sleeping with your head a bit raised might also help.
  • Wash your hands before touching the treated area. The area around the eyes may be cleaned by gently tapping it with a piece of cotton.
  • Do not expose the treated are to dirt or unhealthy environments.
  • Wearing sunglasses is a good way to protect recently-applied eyeliner from debris or dust during the healing process.
  • Feeling a piercing sensation is sometimes normal. Do not SQUEZE, PEEL or SCRATCH the treated area; it might lead to uneven healing and/or infection.
  • DO NOT apply make-up on until at least 72 hours after the procedure. If you had eyeliner applied through dermapigmentation, use new mascara.
  • Do not expose the treated area to direct sunlight, tanning lotions, swimming pools with hot water, saunas, salty water, skin creams, lotions, or any other non-prescribed treatment for the healing process for at least 2 weeks.
  • After a lip treatment, keep your lips moisturized at all times. Avoid spicy or hot food. If you use any herpes medication, continue as prescribed.
  • DO NOT wear mascara at least for two weeks.
