Semi-permanent make-up is a cutting edge beauty treatment which employs the latest techniques to achieve lasting colour or definition for eyebrows, lashes, lips or the eyeline.
The treatment which is technically known as Micropigmentation, is a process of pigment implantation which produces flawless makeup that will last between 1 and 3 years.
The procedure is both safe and medically approved when carried out by a competent technician. The products used at The Dermatography Clinic have a history of long-term use and to date there have been no recorded cases of allergic reactions due to applied pigments. Our products are of the highest quality and were developed in Europe by the leading manufacturers of Digital Machines and Semi-permanent Make-up consumables.
Before working with real clients, Micropigmentataion specialists like Rene’e undertake rigorous training in all aspects of the preparation and application of semi-permanent make-up. London women of all ages are already benefitting from her professional approach and skillful touch!

As one of London’s leading semi-permanent make-up practices, The Dermatography Clinic offers a welcoming environment along with extremely strict hygiene standards. Our number one priority is to make our customers feel comfortable and totally at ease during the time they spend with us.
Our expert permanent makeup artist Rene’e has learned from the best in the industry. The intensive training which she has undertaken with leading industry body Smudge-Free is your guarantee that only the latest techniques and equipment will be used. You can rest assured that your treatment will be highly professional and completely safe.
Rene’e uses the most sophisticated and technologically advanced system in the world to achieve excellent results. We only use disposable cartridge systems which are opened in front of each and every client and our pigments are the purest available, carrying a certificate to verify hygiene and pharmaceutical grade.
Semi-Permanent Cosmetics, also known as Permanent Make-up, Derma Graphics or Cosmetic Tattooing, is a procedure whereby minute particles of natural and synthetic iron oxide colour pigments are implanted a little more than 1mm below the skin’s surface using a hand-piece which holds a sterile needle or needle grouping.
After the semi-permanent cosmetics have been applied, the treated area may look a little darker than desired but this will soften by up to 30% during the healing process. The healing process will generally take between 5 and 10 days depending on the individual’s unique recovery rate and how closely the ‘post-procedure’ care instructions are adhered to.
With The Dermatography Clinic treatments there is rarely any swelling and if there is it is minimal. Because the needles we use in the application of our semi-permanent cosmetics are so fine and are made using the latest technology in laser-cutting techniques, trauma is greatly reduced and no scarring will occur unlike with a lot of inferior products still in use today.
Our products are hypoallergenic, so allergy risks are reduced even further. However in the unlikely event that you do experience some swelling, ice packs can be used for short periods to reduce this and it should not last for more than a day or so. You can continue with your schedule as you normally would with no down-time.
To greatly reduce any discomfort, we numb the procedure location with very effective topical anaesthetic before the semi-permanent cosmetic treatment begins. Most people will feel nothing at all, while a few feel a slight, prickly sensation. Also, the needles we use are so fine that trauma is kept to an absolute minimum and there is no bleeding.
At all times, we adhere to the strictest hygiene and sanitation procedures. We only use sterile, disposable needles, which are opened in front of each client, and are used for your complete safety.
In the initial two weeks after treatment, care should be taken not to expose the treated areas to strong UVA rays, chlorine, salts and saunas, as these will reduce the life of your treatment.
As an ongoing precaution we would recommend a total sun block on the treated areas when going on sunning holidays and when using artificial tanning aids since the UVA will eventually bleach out the pigment. To keep your semi-permanent cosmetics in tip-top condition with true colour retention we would recommend a colour booster every year to 18 months.
On the second day after a procedure is performed, a light dryness will form which is only dry to the touch which will fall off in a few days. During this time the pigmented area will look a little darker than your desired shade. However, after the dryness flakes off, the colour will lighten by up to 30%.
A retouch is not always required. In the unlikely event the result still remains too soft after 4 weeks, then a second visit may be necessary to further define your final colour. At The Dermatography Clinic we include a free retouch, if necessary and if needed must be taken within 12 weeks of treatment. No retouch will be carried out before the 4 week period as the skin needs to heal first.
Immediately! As mentioned earlier, the colour may appear a little darker than required for the first few days. With our techniques the dryness is hardly visible and will not be noticeable to others.
The results will appear very natural and your features will look more defined. Your overall look will be brightened and refreshed. Your friends will never know what the difference is unless you choose to tell them. These treatments offer a major breakthrough in semi-permanent cosmetics. When applied correctly they can give the impression of a mini facelift making you appear 10 Years Younger without surgery.
Rene’e’s creative expertise and up-to date knowledge of pigment implantation will always result in a natural and realistic enhancement complementing your features.
