Permanent make up

Permanent make up is the introduction of pigments in the upper layer of the skin with the help of a very thin needle. With permanent makeup eyebrows, eyeliner and lips are pigmented, so that certain parts of the face can be nicely accentuated.

Eyebrows for example, are very decisive and characteristic of the face and facial expression. If one has (almost) no, or narrow eyebrows, beautiful, expressive eyebrows can be created using a special hair stroke technique. By applying this technique the eyebrows appear to have real hairs.

Naturally the shape and the colour will determined beforehand. This should match the colour of your hair and skin.

DermaCenter also mastered the 'HairStroke 3D' technique!

There are several options available for eyeliners. You can choose an eyeliner in the lash, so it looks like you have fuller lashes. Of course, a wide eyeliner also possible and there is a choice of various colours.
