Montreal's Premier Lip Blush Permanent Makeup Studio
Lip tattooing can enhance the beauty of the natural lip color, correct asymmetry, and add fullness and definition. With the help of this treatment, it is possible to correct the fading color of lips that is associated with aging. Results are customized for every client, therefore, you can expect to achieve the desired effect that you are looking for.
The lip blush procedure takes about 3 hours. A topical anesthetic is used to minimize pain and keep you as comfortable as possible.
Steps to Take Before the treatment:
It's very important to scrub your lips for 7 days before your appointment in order to remove any dead skin. This ensures good color implementation and nice results .
Do not get lip injections 4 weeks before and after this treatment.
If you have a history of cold sores, It is highly recommended to take an antiviral medication, such as Zovirax, 5 days before, the day of, and then 5 days after, or as advised by your doctor or pharmacist.
What to Expect on the Day of Treatment:
You may bring in your favorite lipstick on the day of your appointment so we can help you choose the right pigment color.
Do not consume caffeine or alcohol for 24 hours prior to your appointment to prevent excessive pain and bleeding.
Do not take Advil or other blood thinners, such as Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen, unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Extra strength Tylenol can be taken if you have low pain tolerance.
Avoid exercising the day of the procedure.
Do not get any chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing, and do not take vitamin E, retinols, or fish oil at least 4 weeks before your appointment.
What to Expect After Treatment:
The area will feel a bit sore and will look quite intense. There may be some swelling that only lasts for 1-2 days.
You will need to wipe your tattoo every hour with a clean, wet cotton pad to ensure no fluids sit and form scabs.
The color of the tattoo will darken as scabs begin to form. There may still be some swelling
The scabs will fall off within 3-10 days, depending on your skin.
Keep the area clean at all times and do not touch your tattoo with dirty fingers. Remember, it is an opened and healing wound. An infection could possibly ruin the tattoo.
Don't get your tattoo too wet for too long. It will make the scabs soggy and possibly lead to them falling off prematurely. Remember, you want to keep the scabs on for as long as you can and let them fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring, loss of pigment, or an infection.
Moisturize with the recommended or provided ointment as often as you like.
Do not sleep on your face to avoid lifting your scabs prematurely and make sure you’re sleeping on a clean pillowcase to avoid infection.
Avoid harsh cleansers, creams, makeup, or any other products on the treated area until all the scabs have naturally fallen off.
Do not expose your tattoo to UV rays or tanning beds for 4 weeks after the procedure. These things can alter the appearance of your tattoo dramatically.
Do not sweat on the tattoo until all the scabs have come off naturally. Sweat will take the pigment from your tattoo. If you do sweat on them, dab it off immediately.
Do not get any facials, Botox, chemical treatments, or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks after the appointment date.
After Scabbing Phase:
Once the scabs have completely fallen off, you may apply makeup over the area and return to your normal routine. Note that after the scabs come off, your tattoo may have a milky/grey hue to it. This just means that the surface skin is healed but the underneath layers still need time to heal. The complete healing process takes 6 weeks. At 6 weeks, the true and final color of the tattoo will show. It is only after 6 weeks that a touch-up to the tattoo can be done.
Please note that your tattoo will be softer and not as crisp when healed.
Results will vary with each individual and are extremely dependent on your skin and how you care for it during healing. It may take more than one session to achieve your desired result.
Once Fully Healed:
It is strongly recommended that you do not use any of the following on your tattoo: benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, glycolic acid, apple cider vinegar, vitamin e and c, and retinol. These products can lighten or fade your tattoo faster. We also recommend wearing sunscreen, as the UV rays will deteriorate the pigment and lighten or fade the tattoo faster, as well. Salt water and chlorine can also deteriorate the pigment faster. Rinse with water after contact.
If you are having any laser or facial beauty treatments, please inform your technician before procedures that you have a permanent makeup tattoo.
This treatment does fade after 1-3 years, depending on your skin and lifestyle. Touch-ups are necessary to maintain the longevity and overall beauty of your tattoo. If you have oily skin, an iron deficiency, or a very strong immune system, your pigment will not last as long and will not heal as crisp as others.
