Thinking about introducing permanent makeup support to medical clinics


Permanent makeup as medical

Permanent makeup has been popular with many people in many countries around the world for many years. Each country has different rules and laws regarding permanent makeup technology. In the United States, permanent makeup is considered a "tattoo technique" in most states and requires a tattoo license. Permanent makeup, which is rare in the world, is regarded as a "medical practice" in Japan. Therefore, permanent makeup can only be performed at medical institutions (clinics and hospitals) by doctors and nurse license holders.


However, at present, many doctors and nurses are not trained in make-up design, and the concept of "permanent makeup = medical practice" and "medical workers make up on human faces" is still unclear. It does not penetrate. Permanent makeup treatments by Japanese nurses are gradually expanding due to microblading (eyebrows) around the world. Permanent makeup is a “rewarding” process that allows nurses to work closely with patients and make many women and men smile and regain their confidence with permanent makeup eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. Permanent makeup can be used not only for facial makeup, but also for breast cancer patients' areola regeneration and vitiligo camouflage.

At the Hawaii PMU Academy (HPA), a doctor who is a beginner in makeup uses a technique that is uniquely arranged by an instructor who is active in the United States, who is at the cutting edge of permanent makeup, to suit the faces of Japanese people. The course is A to Z, which is easy for nurses to understand. Start with an online course and take the time to thoroughly train the most important basics.


After the online course is over, you can have a live course under the guidance of HPA instructors and nurses at affiliated clinics in Japan. You can also participate in the Hawaii Permanent Makeup Training Tour, which is held several times a year. Permanent makeup technology is a medical practice in Japan, but it is "art"! Courses will be given from both medical and art perspectives. At HPA, we will provide guidance that is close to each person in order to carefully nurture active permanent makeup artists.


It has been reported that many of the permanent makeup clinics have received more feedback than expected, leading to higher-than-expected sales. There are still few permanent makeup nurses, but the field of activity will expand even more in the future.


For clinics who want to introduce permanent makeup but do not know what to start with, "Art Makeup Introduction Program" and "Nursing" to support nurses who want to start permanent makeup but cannot get the training fee from the clinic at work. There is also a "Teacher Support Scholarship Program", so please contact us for details.

Voice of graduates

I found Instructor Hideko to be a 100% reliable technician and instructor.

First of all, I decided to train under Hideko in Hawaii because my customer was treated by Hideko, and gave her a very natural and beautiful eyebrow treatment. And because I wanted to have a 100% perfect understanding of what constitutes a medical technique in my native language
