I have always struggled with my lips, they were super small and damaged from a bike accident as a kid. After getting fillers to rebuild part of my lip and add fullness, the colour was still particularly faded. Being super pale in general made this even more noticeable and made me feel lifeless and dull if I didnt have my make up done.
Enter Lip Blushing – Lip Blush is a semi-permanent tattooing procedure that can add vibrancy to your natural lip colour, correct asymmetry, and add fullness and definition. If you have lost lip lines due to age or fillers, lip blush can bring fullness and colour back. If you wear colour most days and just want a pop of colour on your face 24/7 then lip blush might be for you.
Using anaesthetic the treatment is generally super comfortable and can last up to 3 years before a colour refresh is needed. We custom blend colours based on your goals and encourage you to bring any colours along you feel you love!
The prep is easy! Avoid avoid ibuprofen, fish oil, and vitamin E before and no caffeine on the day! The healing takes around 7 days and after this a touch up is completed 6 weeks later to ensure the colour is even and will last as long as possible!
The area may feel sore, slightly swollen, and intense in colour 1-2 days after the procedure. Be careful around super-hot food/drinks or spicy food, and avoid hyper-pigmented food/drinks (ex. red wine, pomegranate juice, beets etc.) until healed.
• The day after, your lips will be darkest at their darkest and begin to feel dry. Over the next days, your lips will flake (looks like chapped Winter-time lips, no scabbing) and get increasing lighter.
• During the flaking period, moisturize with something aftercare provided 2-4 times a day, do not soak your lips in water unnecessarily or pick/bite the flakes.
• After the flaking is finished, usually day 4 or 5, natural moisture will return to lips, you may continue with your regular lip routine (ex. lipsticks, cleaners etc.) while the colour “blooms” over the coming weeks.
