The rules to follow for good results
Applied using ultra-thin sterile needles that don’t penetrate the deep dermis, permanent makeup is a “surface” tattoo, where the pigments injected show through the epidermis. As each patient has a different skin colour, it is impossible to guarantee the exact colour of the final result. In addition, depending on the area treated, the colour will be deposited at varying depths, which influences its appearance over time.
Nevertheless, it is important to note that while the colour strength of the pigments fades over time, the pigment particles remain for many years after the colour has fully faded. For this reason, it is necessary to use tattooing products that have been formulated to reduce the risk of allergy.
This is why BIOTIC Phocea’s pigments are the reference for safe, successful permanent makeup.
There are many other criteria that influence the pigments’ longevity in skin (such as pH or the grain size of the powder). All of these criteria are taken into account by Laboratoires BIOTIC Phocea in formulating their pigments, which are all manufactured under medical supervision.

Natural effect – Permanent makeup
Applied using a natural technique, permanent makeup enhances the client’s facial features and makes her daily life easier. However, this solution is not permanent, as the pigments do not all act the same over time. Pigments of organic origin fade more quickly than mineral pigments. In addition, the natural exfoliation of the epidermis will slowly hide the colour behind new layers of skin.
Finally, depending on your clients’ lifestyle, more frequent sun exposure also accelerates colour fading. While this long-lasting technique does not last forever, permanent makeup (or micropigmentation) offers spectacular results thanks to the wide range of BIOTIC Phocea pigments.
