What is LIP BLUSHING?
Lip blushing is a form of cosmetic tattooing that enhances the beauty and definition of your natural lip color. The effect looks very natural, improving the shape, giving fullness to lips in an instant! It delivers much more than just volume for those who want fuller lips without going through fillers – it can be used as a quick fix too!
Here’s how it works: A tiny mechanized needle deposits pigment into the lips, which builds layers of color. Lip blushing 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 and long-lasting results.
Similar to a cosmetic service like microblading, lip blushing can last several years. However, your lifestyle contributes greatly into how well it maintains; smoking and sun exposure speeds up fading process while if you’re oil-prone or have an iron deficiency use exfoliating products on your face often pigment could fade more quickly too.
Who is not suited for the procedure?
You are not a suitable candidate for this procedure if you’re pregnant or nursing, diabetic, have glaucoma, and skin diseases such as Shingles. If you’re allergic to makeup and ink, Keloid disorder (scar tissue) sufferer/eczema on the area of treatment-you could be at risk for hypertrophic scars. If there’s any chance that your immune system is compromised by ongoing chemotherapy or pacemaker implants then we can’t do it either because healing would take too long with these conditions in place.
If you are undergoing treatments that compromise your immunity like ongoing chemotherapy -or even just taking steroids-then we won’t be able to proceed.
THE LIP BLUSH PROCESS
So what happens in an appointment? First, there’s pout prep. A topical anesthetic is applied to pre-numb the lips for 20 minutes. (Optional). Afterwards, the technician will draw the shape of the “new” lips so that you can evaluate, approve or make changes.
The procedure takes place over the course of an hour to two hours depending on the look you’re going for. Once your appointment is completed, you may notice swollen lips—it is a tattoo after all! If this concerns you, feel free to ice them as needed.
Over time (less than a week) your new tattoo will start healing and peeling; take care not to have any important engagements during that period so it has sufficient recovery time before being put under stress again!
For the first 24 hours, we advise you to gently blot your lips with a wet cotton pad and allow them to air dry. This will keep your lips clean of any body fluids that have surfaced throughout this time period as well as preventing these fluids from forming scabs on the surface.
Initially, the color will be super vibrant, almost like a lip stain. It is important not to be alarmed by the immediate ‘after’ results. The immediate results look nothing like when the lips are healed. Once healed, the color fades approximately 20%and also blends in with the natural lip color.
Scabbing typically lasts five to seven days, but after four weeks the lips should be fully healed. We suggest a touch-up appointment around 7-8 weeks in case clients want to change their blush or need an added layer of pigment.
Does the lip blushing hurt?
Should I take off work?
In order to ensure the painless and stress-free visit, our team will do everything in their power. We apply numbing cream so you won’t feel any discomfort, while using a friednly voice tone to make you feel at home and relaxed. Our clients are usually pleasantly surprised by how easy it is!
Should you take off work? No need to worry about downtime! Your lips will be as bright and beautiful after the treatment is done!
When it comes to scabs, they should fall off naturally and picking them can lead to scarring or loss of pigment in those areas. Avoid workouts for two weeks (a great excuse not to go) and if you plan on getting injections wait a full month which gives more time before the next cut is made. Sleeping on your face could also cause the scabs prematurely so try using an occlusive ointment like Aquaphor but it’s really best that we all use this stuff anyways because its amazing!
