Discover the Art of Lip Blushing
What is Lip Blushing?
Lip blushing is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing technique that enhances the natural color and shape of your lips. This modern beauty treatment, often referred to as lip tattooing, is less about ink art and more about subtly boosting lip color and definition for a fresher, more youthful appearance. If you’re considering a change to your lips’ hue or contour, lip blushing could be the perfect option for you.
Considerations Before Lip Blushing:
- Pain tolerance
- Budget for the procedure
- Potential side effects
- The Lip Blushing Process
The journey to revitalised lips involves a few key steps:
- Numbing: To ensure comfort, we apply a topical anaesthetic to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
- Design: As the numbing agent takes effect, we’ll discuss and finalize the desired lip shape and colour, ensuring your complete approval before proceeding.
- Pigmentation: Utilising fine needles, we carefully deposit your chosen pigment into the lips in layers, achieving an even and natural-looking tone.
- Duration: The entire lip blushing session can range from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the complexity of your needs.
We prioritize your comfort. A numbing agent is used to alleviate pain, and the level of discomfort varies with individual pain tolerance. For additional pain management, taking acetaminophen before the appointment is recommended, but please avoid certain medications and supplements that could increase bleeding.
Lip blushing is semi-permanent, typically requiring touch-ups every few years to maintain the vibrant colour. Longevity can be affected by lifestyle factors such as lip exfoliation, sun exposure, and smoking.
Side Effects and Safety
As with any tattooing process, some minor side effects like swelling, redness, and pain are expected during healing. It’s crucial to follow aftercare instructions to avoid infection. If you experience severe symptoms such as excessive swelling, increased pain, or signs of infection, seek medical attention promptly.
Aftercare and Healing
Post-procedure care for lip blushing is akin to tattoo aftercare:
- Initial Healing: Expect swelling and redness; manage these with ice or cold compresses.
- Scabbing: Your lips will scab over as they heal. It’s vital not to pick at the scabs to prevent scarring and uneven healing.
- Protection: Apply petroleum jelly for comfort and to protect the area.
- Lifestyle Adjustments: Limit strenuous exercise and sun exposure immediately post-procedure.
Final Results and Follow-Up
Your lips will fully settle into their new blush about a month after the procedure. We may recommend a follow-up visit to ensure healing is on track and to determine if a touch-up session is needed for perfect colour refinement.
