Semi-permanent make up is a procedure where permanent pigments are placed in the dermal layer of the skin and then the preferred colour is placed into the lower layer of the skin where it stays for anything up to 3 to 5 years.

This is a form of Cosmetic Tatoo. The skin usually takes 3-7 days to return to normal and it is normal to lose 1/3 of the colour in this initial period.  This is increasingly more common and a few examples are eyebrows, eye liner, lip liner, lip extensions, full lip colour, beauty spots, freckles, Areola darkening / re-pigmenting / creation after surgery etc.

The Risks

  • Herpes (Cold Sore) outbreak if work on lips
  • Discomfort
  • Allergic Reaction
  • Bleeding
  • Spreading of pigments
  • Damage to hair follicles
  • Scarring
  • Infection

Some of these can be caused by the needles being inserted too deeply, lack of hygiene or proper sterilisation or an error made by the practitioner.  Skin Sensitivity tests should also be carried out on an unseen area to check that no allergic / adverse reaction will occur.

If you have suffered from any of the above issues or if you are suffering any other problems after having Semi-Permanent Make-up, contact our all-female specialist team and they will be able to talk to you about your issues and discuss if you have a claim for compensation.

Remedial Procedures – if you have to have your procedure corrected, the additional cost involved could form part of the claim against the practitioner or company that carried out the original procedure.

Loss of income – if you need to take additional days off work or you are unable to go back to work due to the negligence of the practitioner or company carrying out the procedure, your loss of income will form part of your claim.
