Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes referred to as micro-pigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, permanent makeup is a quick and easy procedure that is practically painless. The technique is similar to that of tattooing but it is more gentle. Pigments are used instead of ink. This is so that it is softer and more natural-looking. This also means it is more gentle on the skin and gradually fades over time, whereas ink is bolder and solid and will be there for life. Richenda uses a small machine to distribute tiny amounts of pigment into your skin’s dermal layers, giving you a perfectly natural, makeup look every day.
