What is semi permanent makeup?

Semi permanent makeup, also known as micro pigmentation, involves inserting small amounts of pigment into the skin. Pigment is inserted into the top layer of skin where the cells rejuvenate, which is why the makeup fades over time and needs topping up.

The difference between semi permanent makeup and tattooing is the depth of penetration of the pigment. For tattoos, the ink goes deep into the hypodermic level, whereas semi permanent makeup only penetrates into the dermis. Typically, semi permanent makeup technicians refer to the colour as pigment, whereas tattooists call it ink.

I have known Gillian Huntley for 30 years during which time she has continually kept up to date with her Continuing Professional Development and has attended many courses and events. I first met her during some advanced treatment training I was delivering and she was so good she eventually went onto deliver that training on my behalf.

She is not only a caring advanced therapist and a successful business owner, she is professional, empathetic and dedicated to making people’s lives better.

I cannot state how highly I regard her, if only all therapists and beauty business owners had her degree of integrity and passion for customer service.
