Lip Blush is a form of cosmetic tattoo that implants pigment in the lips using a permanent makeup machine with small needles. It is meant to heal like a soft lip tint or stain. It adds a nice hint of color to pale lips and enhances your natural lip shape.
HOW DO WE CHOOSE THE
I offer a variety of different pigment colors to match all lip colors. Color selection is done after evaluating your lips undertones as well as your personal preference. If there is any darkness to you Iips, we must first neutralize that darkness with an orange color which will heal nude. Then once your lips are healed and all the darkness is neutralized, we can make the color more pink during your touchup. If we use a nude or cool color without neutralizing the lips first, those colors will not stay and may also darken the lips.
WHAT ARE THE PRE CARE
I would recommend exfoliating your lips three days before your procedure.
Stay hydrated and keep lips moisturized.
No alcohol or caffeinated products for 24 hours before treatment and no aspirin or or blood - thinning medications five days prior.
For clients with any history of cold sores/ fever blisters/ herpes, even if it was when you were a child, contact your physician and request a prescription for Zovirax, Valtrex, Famvir or the like. Take 2 days before the procedure, the day of the procedure and 2 days after the procedures as directed and repeat on all visits.
IS IT A PAINFUL
Though the sensation of micropigmentation implantation is minimal, every client responds differently. Some may feel more discomfort than others. I do use a pre numbing cream as well as a numbing gel during the procedure to help keep you more comfortable.
Your lips will be swollen and a little tender.
Swelling should subside after 24-48 hrs.
The color will be very vibrant and defined initially.
The next couple of days your lips feel the driest they have ever been, so make sure to moisturize lips at all times.
Healing varies for each individual. Usually by day 3 three lips will start to peel, lips will still feel very dry and chapped. By the 5th day most of the peeling is done. The lips will appear much softer.
WHAT ARE THE
Clients who are on the Fitz Patrick scale 3 and above may unpredictably experience Hypopigmentation or Hyperpigmentation. This is an “Active” response and is temporary. This will appear as spots of discoloration. If this occurs, I would advise to wait at least 6-8 weeks for the color to even out.
