Lip Blush is great for anyone wanting to improve the look of their lips. Lip blush is a form of permanent makeup that involves the deposit of ink into the skin of the lips to create a fuller, more defined lip, the result is a flawless, extremely natural looking lip color. The outcome is a tinted lip balm look that enhances your natural shape while remaining undetectably natural. Most people would assume you just have luscious, hydrated, and youthful looking lips!
Who is a good candidate?
Do you want to have a more youthful appearance, with bigger looking, more defined natural lips? If you answered yes then you are a perfect candidate! This includes those busy parents or business people who don’t have much time to apply make up, active people who don’t want to worry about wearing makeup, any person who has lips that look the same color as their skin, or those who have white spots on their lips.
Who is not a good candidate?
If you are currently pregnant or nursing, have a history of keloid scarring, have you used Accutane within the last year, and if you have a previous lip tattoo then unfortunately, you are not a good candidate.
How does it work?
A tiny pen-like machine is used to gently deposit pigment into the lips, slowly building a beautifully natural lip color. This allows us to build the color gradually so that we have full control over the boldness of the lip color. Color and boldness is based on individual preference.
Will it look like lipstick?
We strive to offer services that are luxurious and natural-looking. Lip Blush is a natural lip enhancement that defines the lips and corrects any imperfections while maintaining your naturally beautiful size and shape. We do not carry bold lip colors like red or purple, and we do not offer bold techniques or solely lip liner.
How long does it last?
The retention rate of Lip Blush is dependent on different factors such as the color you choose, your lifestyle, and how you care for them before and after your appointment. On average, Lip Blush fades away within 2-3 years, with most people wanting a touch up every 12-18 months, depending on how bold you want your lips to look.
Does it hurt?
Most people describe it as a mild discomfort, and we numb! It is a tattoo, so you will feel some discomfort, but it's very manageable.
How long does the appointment take?
The first appointment takes 2-3 hours, and the touch up takes about 1.5-2 hours. Most of this time is spent mapping and numbing in order to create the perfect lip.
What is the healing process?
Some swelling and tenderness after the procedure is normal and may last a day or so. Your lips may look like you got lip filler, however this is normal and typically tapers off within the first 24 hours. Also, your lips will appear darker and bigger for a couple of days. Lips are super easy to heal as our technique is gentle. It only takes about 4-5 days, on average, to heal and during that time they may feel tight and chapped. You may apply Aquaphor as needed.
