LIP BLUSH FAQ'S
If I have had a lip filler injection already, am I still a candidate for Lip Blush?
YES! There is an entire demographic of women that have had lip fillers to create a beautiful pout and fullness in their lips. After lip fillers, the lip line can become blurred and faint from this slight stretch and increased volume. This treatment will compliment lip fillers by giving additional color back to the border of the lips, and the overall lip tone. It's also very popular for women that have naturally faint lips or would like to balance an asymmetric lip line.
Will Lip Blush hurt?
Of all permanent makeup procedures, the permanent lip enhancement procedure is the most sensitive. However, we do numb your lips prior to and throughout the procedure with a highly effective topical anesthetic for your comfort.
* Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.
What color will my lips be?
We'll discuss which colors suit you based on your natural lip color. Once your lips have healed, you may still enhance or change the color of your lips at any time with conventional makeup. Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a base, so it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all!
How will my lips look immediately after?
Your lips may look swollen and slightly larger than normal, as though you've had a slight lip filler injection. The degree of this varies from person to person. The pigment and lip color will look darker initially, like a bold lipstick. The size of your lips will shrink back to normal and the color will significantly fade up to 50% within the first 4 days. You will lose color on the inside of your lips first, the edges last. Right after the procedure, lips normally feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. Similar to how a sunburn feels.
But what if I want to wear a different colored lipstick?
Go for it! This does not replace your lipstick, but gives your lips a natural, blushy tint. If you are a person that loves the appearance of "no-makeup makeup" and wants to look like your lips have a little life during the workweek, at the gym, picking up a coffee and running errands, and like to feel "effortlessly put-together" - this is it! On the weekends when you go out for an event and wear heavier makeup, put on some heels and a bright and bold, or dark and grungy lipstick, then have fun with it!
How long is the healing process?
Expect mild to moderate swelling for up to three days following the procedure. Lips may feel thick like you're wearing several layers of matte lipstick. Lip pigment color will fade up to 50% after the first few days. While healing, your lip color may look spotty. This is due to oxidation of the pigment and the regeneration of the skin. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired lip results. Your Perfecting Session should be scheduled 8-10 weeks after your first initial appointment and is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color, achieve symmetry and density in the shape.
How long does Lip Blush last?
Lip Blush is a form of permanent cosmetic tattooing. The pigment will remain in your skin forever but will fade over time. We recommend getting a touch up every 1-3 years.
