About Permanent Make-up

Permanent Make-Up, also known as cosmetic tattooing, involves the deposit of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin using a specialized machine. This results in the creation of long-lasting cosmetic effects that can endure for years, providing individuals with the desired look they seek. Experience the convenience and beauty of Permanent Make-Up at MPi Clinic.
People opt for permanent make-up for various reasons. Busy professionals appreciate the time-saving aspect, as it eliminates the need for daily makeup application. Athletes and active individuals value the smudge-proof nature of permanent make-up, which remains intact during workouts or swimming sessions. Additionally, those with light or sparse eyebrows, sensitive eyes, sparse eyelashes, or poorly defined lips find permanent make-up to be a convenient solution to enhance their features.

The duration of the procedure may vary depending on individual factors. At MPi Clinic, Eyebrow and Eyeliner treatments typically take 90 minutes to 2 hours, while Full Lip enhancement may require 2 to 3 hours. These times include the drawing of the pattern and the application of our 3-step numbing technique. Experience personalized and precise cosmetic tattooing procedures at MPi Clinic.

One of the remarkable aspects of Permanent Make-Up is the minimal downtime associated with the procedure. Most individuals can resume their normal activities, including work, immediately afterward. However, it’s common to experience some swelling on the lips and eyeliner area. Additionally, the color of the cosmetic tattoo may initially appear 20-30% darker and bolder than the final result. It typically takes about 5 to 7 days for the skin to completely heal. Experience the convenience and beauty of Permanent Make-Up at MPi Clinic with minimal disruption to your daily routine.
At MPi Clinic, we prioritize your comfort during Permanent Make-Up procedures by utilizing a comprehensive 3-step anesthetic system. This includes a combination of cream, gel, and liquid, along with our specialized technique, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. While some soreness may be expected afterward, the extent varies depending on the area treated. Following Eyebrow enhancement, minimal swelling and redness may occur for about a day. After an Eyeliner enhancement, your eyelids may be swollen and red for 1 to 3 days. Using a cold compress can alleviate much of the discomfort. Similarly, after a Lip procedure, which may experience swelling for 3 to 5 days, cold compresses are recommended for relief.

In simple terms, no, Permanent Make-Up does not last forever. While it is long-lasting, it will gradually fade over time. The term “permanent” is used because pigment is deposited into the dermal layer of the skin, as required by law. However, at MPi Clinic, we use soft, natural colors that fade naturally over time, resulting in a more subtle and natural appearance. Various factors such as body chemistry, medications, and sun exposure can affect the longevity of the cosmetic tattoo. We encourage you to care for your cosmetic tattoo by following our suggestions for longevity and using sunscreen to protect the color.

After the initial application, all pigments may appear darker, bolder, and more dramatic before the healing process begins in the first week. During this time, tiny scabs may form along the treated areas as the body heals. As the healing progresses, the skin may appear faded as the irritated skin sloughs off. Typically, after 4 to 6 weeks, once the skin is completely healed, you will be able to see and enjoy the beautiful, refreshed results of your Permanent Make-Up. Experience the transformation at MPi Clinic and unveil your renewed appearance.
After your procedure, we provide you with the appropriate topical product to use on the treated area. It’s crucial to refrain from applying any other products during the scabbing process, typically during the first 5 days. Keeping the treated area clean and free of bacteria is essential for the healing process. Follow our instructions diligently to ensure optimal healing and long-lasting results. Trust MPi Clinic to guide you through every step of your Permanent Make-Up journey with care and expertise.
