Frequently Asked Questions
Lip blushing is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that involves depositing pigment into the lips to enhance their natural color and shape. The procedure is similar to traditional tattooing, but the pigment is deposited more superficially into the skin, creating a subtle, natural-looking tint.
- Enhanced natural lip colour
- Corrects unevenness or asymmetry
- Long-lasting results
- Minimal maintenance
- Customizable color and shape
During a lip blushing procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the lips for 20-30 minutes to minimize discomfort. We will then use a specialized needle and tattoo gun to deposit pigment into the lips. The procedure typically takes 2-3 hours to complete. After the procedure, the lips may be swollen and tender for a few days. It’s important to avoid picking at any scabs or dry skin that may form during the healing process. Lip blushing typically lasts 2-3 years but may require touch-ups to maintain the desired color and shape.
It’s important to follow proper aftercare instructions after a lip blushing procedure, such as avoiding hot, spicy, or acidic foods, avoiding lip balm or lipstick for the first few days, and keeping the lips moisturized. It’s also important to avoid exposure to sunlight and to use sunscreen to protect the lips from UV damage.
Typically, one session is required for lip blushing. However, some people may require a touch-up session 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure to adjust the color or shape of the lips.
After the initial procedure, the lips will need time to heal, and the color will appear more intense for the first few days. Over the next few weeks, the color will fade slightly as the skin heals and the pigment settles into the skin. This is a normal part of the healing process, and the final color will be visible after several weeks.
