Permanent make-up (PMU) offers clients a long-lasting
pleasure of always having great-looking eyebrows,
eyeliner and lips effortlessly
PMU which stands for permanent make-up, is also known as
micropigmentation. Some refer to micropigmentation as cosmetic
tattooing, which is inaccurate. The principle may be similar to tattooing
in that a permanent pigment is implanted into the skin, but the
procedure, pigments and devices used are rather different.
The procedure involves the use of a hand-held device that punctures
