Micropigmentation - Level 4
About the course
The specialist techniques used to create a kind of semi-permanent make-up are often referred to as micropigmentation. This procedure can simply be described as minute particles of coloured pigment being placed mechanically below the surface of the skin. The most frequently requested procedures are permanent colour to the eyebrows, top and bottom eyeliner shading, lip liner and full lips/lip blend, beauty spot and freckle treatments. Although the treatment fades after approximately 2 - 4 years, some colour will remain to a greater or lesser degree.
Micropigmentation can be compared to having a tattoo as the new pigment or colour is deposited in the dermal layer of the skin, just below the surface.
