TECHNIQUE, DEFINITION, IMPLEMENTATION, TRAINING COURSES. Over the years research and experience have allowed experts to identify several areas of implementation for this technique, so that micropigmentation has developed into three categories: aesthetic, corrective and reconstructive micropigmentation.

Micropigmentation – COURSES

Beauty Medical offers customized Micropigmentation Training Courses. Because of technological innovation, training evolution and constant change in the demand different professional micropigmentation branches have been developed:

All Micropigmentation branches:

  • Aesthetic Micropigmentation or permanent makeup
  • Reconstructive or paramedical Micropigmentation
  • Hair Tricopigmentation

Aesthetic Micropigmentation or Permanent Make-up Courses.

Permanent make-up courses are designed for all candidates who wish to express their artistic talent through the newest techniques of basic corrective make-up. The courses are open to anyone who wants to learn the technique or improve their knowledge in the field of make-up. There is no need for minimum skills for candidates who want to follow the basic micropigmentation training technique.

  • Eyebrows arch
  • Correction of the eye shape
  • Symmetry of the lip mucosa

Corrective and Paramedical Micropigmentation Courses

Paramedical micropigmentation courses are designed for all technicians who are already graduated in micropigmentation basic techniques and want to specialize in a different field. More and more dermatologists, plastic surgeons and oncologists are collaborating with micropigmentation practitioners. Paramedical micropigmentation can be associated with the use of topical or systemical therapy to temporarily camouflage patches resulting from vitiligo, injury scars, breast mastectomy and more.

    Course for areola reconstruction
    Course for scars camouflage
    Camouflage course on vitiligo

    These courses are individual and they last one full day.



The Tricopigmentation training course is designed for all professional figures coming from the medical field as hair restoration surgeons, experts, dermatologists who wish to use Beauty Medical technique as an alternative or complementary technique to pharmacological therapies (in case e.g. the patient does not respond adequately to the therapy), as complementary to the hair transplant (e.g. to improve the density achieved through the hair trasplant) or alternative (in the case the patient’s donor area is not rich enough). All the professionals of hair restoration and surgery, as well as nurses, can approach the world of Tricopigmentation through an intensive personalized training.

The course is designed to learn how to treat indipendently the patient performing several techniques depending on initial conditions:

• Shaved effect
• Density effect
• Scar coverage


The term Micropigmentation has been developed about one decade ago when permanent make-up was ethically distinguished from tattooing acquiring its own identity.
From tattooing to the evolution of micropigmentation.

In the early 90s, the idea of tattooed makeup, which belonged to the previous decade and which had left a negative sign in the collective imagination, paved the way to different and most advanced techniques, such as Micropigmentation, which started to be more and more visible.



There are many synonyms, which are used to distinguish micropigmentation from “tatooed makeup”: from TCP chromed permanent makeup to aesthetics dermography and semi-permanent makeup.
Actually the terms semi-permanent or permanent makeup mean nowadays the same since no practitioner would inoculate in the face dermis pigments commonly used in aesthetic body tattoo.
The word micropigmentation includes all professional techniques which consist in the introduction of specific pigments into the layer of the skin in order to adorn, improve, disguise, mark or uniform facial features.

When we talk about micropigmentation we refer to practitioners who are well trained and who use tested products in order to protect the health of both themselves and their patients.
The hygienic protocol is very rigid. Needles, pigments and materials are sterilezed and disposable. For this reason, companies provide a top quality service in the market. Beauty Medical joins Goldeneye, world leader in the field of cosmetic and paramendical micropigmentation.


Micropigmentation is an aesthetic technique which consists in the introduction of specific pigments into the skin using applicators in order to modify, correct, beautify and balance certain facial or body features. In order to allow a precise pigment deposit in the dermal surface technicians use specifically designed needles and handpieces. Over the years, research and experience have made it possible to identify different implementation cases of this technique, which was originally linked only to the practice of permanent make-up. Nowadays Micropigmentation can be divided into three categories: aesthetic, corrective and paramedical micropigmentation.


Aesthetic Micropigmentation, known as permanent makeup until today, is a technique used to modify, refine and beautify the shape of the eyebrows, eyes and lips; Corrective micropigmentation is used to improve and uniform improper shapes as well as to repair mistakes of wrong treatments; reconstructive micropigmentation, also called paramedical, is applied to camouflage scars and vitiligo or to reconstruct female areolas after surgery, and it could therefore be considered as the natural evolution of camouflage techniques.

Camouflage is a particular form of makeup which requires the use of special cosmetics and which can also be performed inside hospitals as a real cure. However, modern technologies and continuous scientific research made it possible to develop harmless products and pigments such as those used in micropigmentation techniques, which can be applied not only to the skin surface but also within the dermis and which remain unchanged for a long period of time. By this methodology the patient achieves the same objective that can be reached with classic camouflage without having to apply it every day.


Micropigmentation is very similar to tattooing in some aspects but really differs from it for duration, pigments, depth of pigment deposit, equipment and technician skills and education. The pigments that are used in micropigmentation, indeed, are inoculated in the superficial layer of the dermis. They are temporary and so they will be eliminated from our body thanks to the natural process of skin regeneration remaining perfect for an approximate time of 24 months (except rare subjective factors), although an homogeneous and total disappearance of the pigment it is not guaranteed. The pigment used in micropigmentation also differs from the one of tattooing for the chemical composition. The accessories, equipment and applicators used by the technician are totally sterile and disposable, unlike those normally used for tattooing which do not always require sterilization.


The micropigmentation practitioner has all the technical and professional skills that are necessary in the world of aesthetics, such as the knowledge of face morphology and of the skin structure, the basics of make-up and sanitary notions. He then receives a specific training about all the theoretical and practical aspects which are necessary to perform a good micropigmentation treatment. He also needs other characteristics, such as relationship skills, empathy, and humility, since it is always possible to learn something new.
