Micropigmentation (known as Semi Permanent Make Up) is a procedure which should only be carried out by a trained specialist using approved equipment to implant quality coloured pigments into the skin using sterile needles. All treatments require your full consent and a medical history disclosure. Catrina will need to be sure that you are a suitable candidate for our proposed procedure.


Semi Permanent Make Up is a process that may require more than the two procedures to achieve the desired result. Further applications will be chargeable at the discretion of Catrina Valentine SPMU. If a stronger look is required through personal preference, this will be chargeable. It is extremely important that you adhere to your Aftercare Instructions to ensure that you are not vulnerable to infection once you have left the environment of the clinic. If a treated area is picked, pulled or accidentally knocked, not only is it more susceptible to infection it may also effect the healed result and the pigment could migrate outside of the treated area and therefore appear uneven and require more work, for which there will be an extra charge.


Catrina will describe the benefits and risks of your proposed treatment and record your consultation on a form. This form will be used for reference and referred to on subsequent visits. All forms must be signed by both the client and the practitioner in order to proceed.


Catrina will discuss what the procedure is likely to involve and about subsequent treatments. You will be given After Care Information verbally and you will be furnished with a hard copy to take home.  Additionally you will be sent an email of the same.


Semi Permanent Make Up is a process that will require more than one application to achieve the desired result. A second application, 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment, is included in the cost of the original procedure. Single applications are not available for any new treatments. Appointments not taken within 8 weeks will be chargeable.  Further applications will be fully charged.  


There can be no guarantee that correctional work undertaken by CVSPMU from other technicians will only require one treatment. Furthermore, there can be no guarantee that any refresh treatments taken on by CVSPMU from other technicians will be compatible to the precious pigments used by CVSPMU and will therefore possibly require several procedures and each treatment will be chargeable.




  • You have chosen a procedure, which is not medically necessary.

  • Microppigmentation is an art process, not an exact science, and cannot guarantee you an exact colour   result, as colours heal differently in all individuals. The elected colour will be darker immediately after the treatment. This darker colour should exfoliate and lighten up to at least 50% within 7/14 days. Lighter colours fade faster than darker colours, and all colours will change with time.

  • You may need to return for additional treatments before your procedure is deemed complete. The payment for additional work - if applicable will be agreed prior to any work commencing. Additional work cannot be carried out for 4 - 8 weeks, to allow the area to heal fully. Colour will continue to change up to a period of 13 weeks.

  • Catrina Valentine will keep a Treatment Plan to keep a log of the colours you have chosen, as well as anaesthetic, and needles used, along with your pre and post treatment photographs. This information will be held securely in your Consultation Record.

  • The skin type of every client is different and colour should stay visible in the skin for several years (and in some cases indefinitely).  The ingredient iron oxide in the pigment will be present permanently but will not necessarily be visible. A re-touch procedure will be required periodically to keep the procedure looking fresh. This is dependant on age, skin type and chosen colour.

  • After each treatment the treated area will swell and distort. This should settle with 2 – 3 days following the treatment. Immediately following the treatment a white hue will be visible or show redness and, in some cases, bruising, Catrina will recommend how to take care of this. You may experience some discomfort but she will reassure you throughout and will endeavour to make you feel comfortable.

  • Pigments are made from iron oxides and are not the same as tattoo inks and therefore compatibility is questionable.

  • It is important to note that if you have an MRI or CAT scan you must tell the radiologist that you have had a medical tattoo. You may experience a slight tingling in the treated area.
