What is Lip Blushing?

Lip Blushing enhances the natural shape of your lips, giving them that boost of vitality and even color. This is an extremely popular semi-permanent makeup treatment providing a flush of color as well as defining the contours of the lip. The final result will resemble a very subtle, matte, natural toned lipstick look.

Permanent Lip Makeup

How it works?

Lip blushing is a type of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your lips using a micro needle. You can choose your own color you want applied to your lips and you can still wear your favorite lip color over your blushed lips.

Does it Hurt?

Your lips are the most sensitive part of the face. For this reason I use a topical prescription numbing cream that sits on your lips before I begin and use a secondary numbing throughout the procedure.

Healing

It takes around 5 to 10 days for your lips heal after a lip blushing procedure. Be aware that the color will vary quite a lot during the healing process before reaching your desired color. Following aftercare steps provided are essential for optimal results.

Maintience

Lip Blushing is considered a semi-permanent procedure. This means you'll need to repeat the process every few years to maintain your results. Frequent lip exfoliation, sun exposure, and smoking can make the pigment fade faster over time.

How to Prepare for a Lip Blushing Appointment

Keep lips hydrated with Aquaphor leading up to your appointment. Bring pictures/lipsticks in order to show to your artist the desired color. Exfoliate and moisturize lips 3 days before service. If you are prone to cold sores take preventive tablets daily for 3 days leading up to your appointment, and up to 3 day after procedure. Eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the service.

 What to avoid BEFORE a Lip Blushing Appointment?
Do not consume alcohol, caffeine, fish oil, Vitamin E, aspirin and ibuprofen as they cause the blood to thin and will result of more bleeding during the procedure. (Tylenol is okay to take before  service.)

No Botox or fillers in the lip area less than two weeks prior or after procedure. No laser or electrolysis on or around the treatment area one week prior to procedure. Do not have any chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure.
