Semi-Permanent Makeup

Semi-permanent make-up, also known as Micro-Pigmentation, has become a very popular procedure for those who wish to have a low maintenance method of maintaining and improving their looks.
At YourGP this procedure is carried out by Jacqui Hoitingh (Marshall).

Micro-Pigmentation is a variation of cosmetic tattooing in which hypoallergenic, pharmaceutical grade pigments are introduced into the skin in order to create a shadow of colour that mimics perfectly applied make-up. The most requested treatment is Eyebrows but you can also have all different kinds of Eyeliner and Contourless Lips are very popular. 

The objective of permanent cosmetics is to raise self-esteem and self-confidence. It also allows for aesthetic looks to be maintained throughout active or busy lifestyles, (such as staying put during sporting activities or throughout hectic shifts) thus creating more personal freedom and saving time comparted to traditional make-up.

People of all ages are discovering the benefits of permanent cosmetics. Everyone can benefit from this procedure, be it for cosmetic reasons or medical ones. Micro-Pigmentation can be particularly advantageous to those affected by:

  • Sparse or no eyebrows/eyelashes due to over plucking or trichotillomania
  • Poor vision or unsteady hands
  • Allergies to conventional cosmetics
  • Hay fever or watery/itchy eyes
  • Alopecia sufferers
  • Post treatment and terminal cancer

Natural looking, soft work is the best, no one should know you have Permanent Make Up! Work is always softer on the first treatment then, should you wish it more prominent, this is carried out at the follow up 4-6 weeks later.

Book with confidence: Your Technician has 11 years experience in Permanent Make up.

How It Works

Every treatment is tailor-made to suit your individual desires, and the results will yield perfect results that are designed to your specific requirements.

This treatment uses state of the art digital equipment, medical strength topical anaesthetics (although the treatment itself has a minimal discomfort level) and the experience of one of the most accomplished professionals in this very specialised field.

Depending on your lifestyle, any medication and your skin type, permanent cosmetics will gradually fade over time and a top-up procedure is usually required within 1-3 years of the initial treatment.


Prices start from £100. Due to the individual, tailored nature of this treatment, prices vary from person to person.

What Our Customers Have To Say

“The facilities and patient service are second to none. The treatment I received for my eczema was innovative, holistic and most importantly highly effective. My skin has responded to the treatment I was prescribed. I am delighted with the resultant, significant reduction in my symptoms. I was impressed by the caring, sensitive and professional treatment I received. This was in stark contrast to my experience at my usual GP and at private consultations with supposedly eminent and specialist dermatologists. Thank you.”
