Lip blushing procedure helps cut down makeup time and gives evenly pigmented lips with luxurious color. The cosmetic tattooing industry is going towards more natural and realistic outcomes. If you are looking for a way to avoid reapplying your favorite lip product you should consider lip blush. With lip blush, you can have the best version of your lips with gentle soft lip contour without harsh lip lines. This technique helps to enhance what you already have and provides a natural outcome. As we age we tend to lose pigment in our lips, so lip tattoos give a healthy, girly, young, and plumped look. Since this treatment looks natural once healed it is not only reserved for women. Men can benefit from lip blushing as well.
Immediately after the lip blush tattoo procedure lips look bigger, swelling goes down with every hour and lips go back to normal size. Some clients mistakenly equate "lip blushing" with "lip fillers". Some of the benefits of lip blush include lips look that is more defined without fillers, this plump effect is rather an illusion than actual volume. It is a great addition to lip fillers since they stretch the skin tissue and lips lose definition in borders.
Lip Blushing tattooing procedure usually takes about 2-3 hours. Every lip skin is different and absorbs pigment in different ways. Clients have various needs and expectations, every case requires special care. If the shape of the lips and texture of lip tissue is good it is easier to work. Lip tattooing is a very precise procedure and starts from drawing the shape. The whole preparation for actual tattooing can take about 1 hour. Because lips are very sensitive we have certain time frames that we need to keep in order to not overwork the skin. The pigment is applied to lips with a sterilized needle, you might feel the vibration and some tingling and scratching sensation. If you are scared of needles, don't be, you won't see the needle. The artist is using only the tip of the needle for precise work on the lips surface. The results last for a long time, so go for it.
The colors used for lip blushing are based on existing skin tones and undertones of the client's natural lips and then on the target color that the client is looking for. Permanent Makeup Artist mixes colors to your needs, depending on if your lips need to be warmed up or lightened. Many clients need melanin correction to lift the darkness in their lips. This process is called lip neutralization. It is good to inform the client that the lips will fade after healing, so the initial color will seem vibrant and darker, it will change during healing time but the fully healed result will look softer and beautiful. Trust the process, your permanent makeup artist will help you find the perfect tone.
About 4 weeks from the initial session, it is possible to adjust the color. With most clients, the color looks dramatically lighter after the first week, many clients prefer natural results, but some expect a bolder look. The same color will look and heal differently on every client, so sometimes it will need a small color correction, to warm it up or simply more pigment layers.
Clients who don’t have really dark lips are candidates for lip blushing, if you have darker lips you are more prone to hypo or hyperpigmentation, because of the trauma from tattooing. For clients with dark lips, it is advised to use the lipstick effect technique for color correction. Melanin-rich lips need more pigment saturation to lift the darkness. In some cases, it is a multi-session process. Often clients with light skin tone have darkness in their lips that needs to be canceled.
To make the procedure easier it is recommended to prepare lips for about 7 days before the tattooing. Moisturizing and gently exfoliating the lips with coconut oil and sugar is the key to smooth pigment implantation, it not only helps the color to absorb in but also removes dryness and flakiness.
On the first day of healing the color is very bright, sometimes dark, depending on the color used. The pigment oxidizes in the skin and looks very bold. This process can be a little scary, but every day the color should look more natural. The body naturally pushes the pigment out through the dermis layers, this influences color perception. As the pigment is getting pushed out thru each layer and skin peels, the color changes. Peeling usually starts on days 3-4 and reveals soft color underneath. After the lip blush procedure is fully healed you don't need any lip liners or lipsticks, you can use transparent lip gloss if you like shiny lips look. Treatment should be done once a year because the color will fade.
The color will change a lot during the healing process. Remember you are not allowed to pick your scabs. Avoid touching lips and salty, spicy foods. Lips will heal quicker if you follow the aftercare protocol. It is important to plan the treatment ahead since lips should be dry at all times. A thin layer of ointment should be applied only on clean and dry lips.
