Permanent Make-up is most often called permanent cosmetics, but also includes various other names such as derma-pigmentation, derma-graphics, micro-pigmentation, micro-pigment implantation and cosmetic tattooing; the latter being the most appropriate and accurate, since permanent make-up is basically tattooing.
Permanent Make-up is a specialized cosmetic beauty technique or process which requires the implanting of specially formulated permanent make-up pigments (similar to a tattoo) which are derived from organic and/or inorganic compounds, into the upper reticular layer of the skin (i.e. permanent pigmentation of the skin).
The technique produces designs that create an illusion resembling make-up, such as eye-lining and other permanent enhancing colours to the skin of the face, eyelids and lips.

Benefits of Permanent Make-up
- For those that require scar camouflage work done on any noticeable flaw; permanent make-up covers up scars and other blemishes
- For those with allergies or skin sensitivities to conventional cosmetics
- For those that wear contact lenses or eyeglasses that cause watery eyes or smudged eye-liner
- For those with motor skill impairments, due to Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, tremors or unsteady hands, limiting your ability to put on your make-up
- For those with dexterity difficulties, due to Arthritis, paralysis (from a stroke) or vision impairments or limitations, making it difficult to put on your make-up. Does painful arthritis stop you from putting on makeup? Look great every day without ever having to worry about those pains again.
- For those with Presbyopia (where the eye exhibits a progressively diminished ability to focus on near objects with age) or other visual impairments or limitations. People suffering from presbyopia have a hard time focusing on things close so applying makeup may be difficult. These people no longer need to worry about not being about to see to put on makeup.
- To correct nature's “mistakes” (genetic disturbances), where one eyebrow is higher than the other, lips that shrink or lose colour with age, thin or uneven lips that take away from facial balance, etc
- For those that have Vitiligo (also known as leukoderma or white spots on their skin) to return an even skin tone
- For those that have hair loss or sparse hair due to aging, over-plucking, Chemotherapy treatments or Alopecia Areata (hair loss from all or parts of the body, especially the scalp). Alopecia Areata sufferers can help cover hair loss using permanent makeup. Repair overplucked eyebrows with a permanent eyebrow enhancement, Chemotherapy patients can also use these techniques to hide the side-effects of their treatments.
- For those that require skin re-pigmentation due to Chemotherapy or reconstructive surgery (e.g. enhance or re-create the breast's areola after a mastectomy, disguise the appearance of a surgically corrected cleft lip, etc)
- For those that require skin re-pigmentation due to burns, where burn victims benefit from permanent make-up because the procedure helps with scar relaxation and certain facial features lost to severe burns are restored
- For those suffering from Trichotillomania (also known as trichotillosis or more commonly as trich), characterised as hair loss from a patient's repetitive self-pulling of hair and is typified by the repeated urge to pull out scalp hair, eyelashes, facial hair, nose hair, pubic hair, eyebrows or other body hair, sometimes resulting in noticeable bald patches.
