Lip blushing is the newest and biggest trend in the cosmetic industry. Lip blushing is a semi permanent, cosmetic tattoo that uses medical-grade, hypoallergenic, water-based inks to achieve a tinted, natural-looking lip color. It creates the illusion of fuller, plumper lips by overlining in strategic areas and shading the lips an even color. This service is valued as a less-invasive alternative to lip fillers.
- Restores colour
- Adds fullness (using colour)
- Creates contour
- Bloodless technique
The technique and color choices create a natural, blush, candy or “just bitten” look to the lips. The technique uses a small needle and works softly on the lips to very gently implant the color without creating too heavy of a lip-liner/border appearance. Colors are chosen for the client’s desired results and skin tones, but the overall goal is to give lips life and a natural tint without being too dramatic, creating a soft blush appearance.
After your session you can expect to look like you’re wearing lipstick combined with a mild lip-filler pout. The color looks really vibrant the day of and after the appointment. Around day two-three, the lips will softly flake away, and the following day they appear almost entirely healed. This soft technique I use ensures the lips will heal quickly and with minimal discomfort. A touchup appointment is recommended after 4-6 weeks.
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 (vermillion border) can become blurred and faint from this slight stretch and increased volume. This treatment will compliment lip fillers by giving additional colour 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.
Irregular lip lines can be redefined with a liner procedure. A full color procedure can restore faded lips, giving them a fresher and younger appearance. Permanent cosmetics can make thin lips fuller and drooping corners appear lifted. Having correctly contoured and defined lips creates a youthful appearance.
It is highly recommended that you take Valtrex (prescribed from your doctor) prior to this procedure. Trauma to the lips may cause an outbreak of cold sore if you are prone to them.
Results can last 18months to 3 years. Fading will occur over time due to lifestyle, skin type, cellular turnover and sun exposure. Annual color boosts are recommended.
