PROCEDURE

LIP BLUSH

The process can take up to 3 hrs. I measure your lips to achieve the best symmetry based on your existing lip shape. Here is where I add markings to your lips area to determine the best shape. I will adjust the shape as often as needed until the desired look is achieved. I will not proceed with the procedure until then.

 

The second step is applying a numbing agent to the lips beforehand if needed.  We will also discuss what pigment color will work based on your lip's  undertone.  Then the lip blush procedure begins. I will use a numbing agent before and during the procedure if needed for your comfort.

* Clients who are on their menstrual cycle may be more sensitive and have increased discomfort during the procedure.

AFTERCARE

The aftercare procedures are as important to the retention of the pigment as the actual implantation  process. During this period, the primary objective is to allow the bonding process to be completely sealed inside the dermis. Your compliance will ensure that you  receive maximum benefits from the procedure and reduce inconvenient follow-up visits.

 

  • After you leave, I recommend you apply ice packs to your lips for 10-15 mins each hour for the first 2-3 hours following the procedure. This will help reduce swelling and to provide comfort. After the first 24 hours the use of ice is no longer needed.

  • Wipe the lip with moistened cotton pad every 30 mins and apply healing ointment. Removing lymph( clear fluid) and blood will prevent scab formation.

  • No soap, cleanser or shampoo on the treated area for 7 days. Soap and cleansers are designed to remove any foreign substances. Obviously, this is detrimental to the bonding process required for the pigment to become permanent. Toothpaste and mouthwash are considered “soap” and will remove lip color, so proceed with caution when using. I would recommend applying a liberal amount of Aquaphor on the lips before brushing teeth as to prevent toothpaste from touching the lips.

  • All cleansing should be done with a clean Q Tip dipped in cool water and gently dabbed on the treated area. Under no circumstances should you pick, scratch or rub the treated area or attempt to remove the crusty material. Removing the crusts may result in the removal of the actual pigment and/or infection may occur. It is important that this protective layer stays on during the healing process (3-7days).

  • Apply Aquaphor with a Q Tip to the treated area during the healing process to keep lips moist. Apply to the treated area several times a day.  This is to be done in a gently dabbing motion as to not disrupt the pigmentation bonding process. This keeps  the area moist and accelerates the healing. Do not let the area dry out, keep moist at all times.

  • If any redness, tenderness, swelling, drainage, fever or rash develop, please contact your health care provider immediately.

  • Baths and showers are permitted, but do not wash,scrub or touch the treated area. Hot, steamy baths and showers should be avoided completely. After two weeks, you may resume all regular activities.

  • For the first 2 days, use a straw when drinking liquids., biting into fruit or foods that might cause friction to the lips. Smoking is discouraged for optimal results.
