What is micropigmentation?


Permanent make-up (PMU) or micropigmentation is the revolutionary method of depositing hypoallergenic mineral pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. With an ultra-thin needle and pigment, the shape of the eyebrows, eyes or lips is enhanced.

This treatment is also known as permanent make-up or cosmetic tattooing. It is sometimes wrongly confused with cosmetic tattoos (e.g. eyebrow tattoos or eyeliner tattoos). However, the pigments used for permanent make-up are introduced less deeply into the skin layer and have a different composition from tattoo inks. Micropigmentation devices are also more refined than tattoo machines, and the techniques that are used are different.

Permanent make-up allows you to subtly give features shape and definition to enhance natural beauty in both men and women. Besides boosting self-confidence, micropigmentation can also lead to a more active lifestyle, personal freedom and save quite a bit of time on make-up application. In addition, the procedures have a stunning smudge-free effect that will last for several years. PMU is also very suitable for people with allergies to regular make-up, contact lens wearers with sensitive eyes, people with glasses or people who are active in sports. The possibilities are endless! In short, permanent-make-up ensures you always look your best.

Nouveau Contour’s advanced devices, pigments and techniques also make micropigmentation especially suitable for medical purposes, such as areola pigmentation and the treatment of scars or correction of cleft lips. This is called dermapigmentation.
