Can last in the skin 2+ years (depending on your body, lifestyle and skincare routine)

What to expect

To start, we have a full consultation to go over details and discuss your lip goals. This is also our opportunity to answer any questions you may have before starting the procedure. Lip Blushing focuses on colour and shape. Colour options range from pinks, nudes and reds. The desired lip shape will be mapped out for you to look at and approve. They are mapped out based upon natural lips and facial features. Lip Blush needs to stay within the lip tissue and not outside. 

Once colour and design are chosen and mapped on, the procedure begins and numbing agents are used throughout the service to maximize comfort. The process involves using a PMU (permanent makeup machine) and cartridges made of small needles to implant the pigment into your skin. You will feel a slight buzzing where the needle is applying the pigment. All aftercare instructions will be gone over in detail. Colour retention varies according to individual body (thicker skin & oily skin fades faster), lifestyle (sun exposure & smoking can fade faster), body chemistry and skincare routine, all of which will effect the longevity of the lip blush. The fading process is gradual and a touch up colour boost is recommended 6-8 weeks after the first appointment to enforce/balance out any colour and to make any needed adjustments to have lip blush last. If you do not have a touch up colour boost they will likely fade away within a few months.

Lip Blush will slowly fade in colour over time and when to have the next colour boost touch ups will depend on the individual’s needs. Most people want a touch up every 12-18 months, depending on how bold you want your lips to look. Colour can stay in the skin 2-5+ years and will vary from client to client. 

Final healed results are shown at 6-8 weeks after appointment. Peeling can be finished within the first 1-2 weeks, however healing is still occurring under the skin. Any colour boost touch up needs to be done after fully healed.

You can still get it done but it is recommended to get a prescription to avoid any issues. A prescribed anti-viral medication (such as Valtrex) is recommended  to prevent an outbreak. Speak with Doctor for their medical advice.
