What is semi-permanent makeup?

Semi-permanent makeup is a cosmetic treatment that involves inserting pigment into your skin. The process is similar to tattooing, but the pigment is not permanent. Semi-permanent makeup is ideal if you enjoy the appearance of wearing makeup daily but don’t have the time or patience to apply it. 

The most popular areas for semi-permanent makeup are the eyebrows, eyes, and lips. Since the skin in these areas is thin, delicate, and sensitive, treatment from a trained specialist is essential. Specializing in dermatology, the team at Ross Dermatology provides expert care and precision when applying semi-permanent makeup.

What are the different types of semi-permanent makeup?

The three most popular types of semi-permanent makeup that the team offers are:

Eyebrow pigment

Also called microblading, eyebrow pigment helps your eyebrows appear darker, fuller, and shapelier. The team applies pigment one hair at a time to blend in with the natural appearance of your eyebrows. Results can last longer than most types of semi-permanent makeup. Many people continue to see results for 18 to 30 months* after their treatment.

Lip color

If you’re tired of reapplying lipstick multiple times a day, the team can help you choose a long-lasting lip pigment that gives you the perfect pout. Semi-permanent lip pigment can last up to three years* with routine touch-ups.


Eyeliner is one of the most popular types of semi-permanent makeup. The treatment involves injecting pigment across the lash line to mimic the appearance of freshly applied eyeliner. You can enjoy long-lasting results for up to 12 to 18 months*.

What can I expect from semi-permanent makeup?

Before your treatment, it’s important to avoid irritating skin products, like glycolic acid and retinoids. You should also avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen whenever you’re outside.

 After an initial consultation, the team will discuss your pigment options to find the shade that complements your skin tone and produces the highest quality results.

Your specialist applies a numbing anesthetic to your skin before your treatment to ensure your comfort. Once your treatment ends, you can apply ice to the area to reduce swelling and redness. The team may recommend returning for touch-up treatments to maintain your results.
