A tiny mechanized needle deposits pigment into the lips, which builds layers of color. it can be a corrective service to help even out the tone of the lips, but it can also help with asymmetry.
Unlike traditional permanent cosmetic tattoos, lip blushing is an evolved service that’s meant to provide natural looking, long-lasting results.
For the first 24 hours, gently blot lips with a wet cotton pad and let them air dry. Avoid kisses,hot drinks, red wine for 4 weeks. This is to keep the lips clean and remove any body fluids that have surfaced and prevent the fluids from forming scabs.
When it comes to scabs, it’s important that they fall off naturally—picking them can result in scarring or loss of pigment in those areas. Avoid workouts and sun exposure for two weeks .
If you plan on getting injections, wait a full month. Sleeping on your face could also cause the scabs to fall off prematurely.
An occlusive ointment like Aquaphor should be worn to keep the lips properly moisturized.
Initially, the color will be super vibrant, almost like a lip stain. It is important not to be misled by the immediate ‘after’ results. The immediate results look nothing like when the lips are healed. Once healed, the color fades approximately 30-50 percent and also blends in with the natural lip color.
Scabbing typically lasts five to seven days, and after four weeks, the lips should be fully healed.
In the event the client wants to alter the shape of the blush, or fill in areas that may have rejected pigment, a touch up appointment can be made around six weeks after treatment. This is not mandatory.
If you have a history of cold sores or herpes, the procedure could trigger an outbreak. Prescribed anti-viral medication should be taken before the appointment, and it should be noted that cold sores can affect the healed results of the lip blush.
