Lip blushing is an up and coming semi-permanent makeup treatment (tattooing) providing a consistent flush of color as well as defining the contours of the lip. Once lips are healed to the final result you end up with a very subtle soft natural outcome (tinted lip)
There are multiple pigment colors to choose from. It is important to know that the lips will fade quite a bit, so the initial color will seem dark, but will heal to a much softer neutral tone. Trust Cindi and together you and her will find the perfect tone!
Does it hurt?
Pain is very minimal. A topical anesthetic is applied prior for 25 minutes, and during as often as needed.
Velvet lips often look very bright and bold right after the procedure, clients often experience a slight redness and some swelling.
We send our clients with an ice pack and healing balm as they leave the studio.
The healing process doesn’t finish when the redness goes away.
Clients should keep away from spicy foods, excess smoking or drinking the day of and prescription pain killers. Ibuprofen or an Antihistamine can be taken for swelling, Tylenol is best to avoid bruising.
Clients Should also avoid laying down right after the procedure to allow swelling to decrease
Romance may have to take a pause for the first 48 hours… Avoid kissing, touching, outside body fluids and foreign bacteria on the lips.
Lip healing can last anywhere from 5 days to two weeks.
Clients will need to take special care of the new lips during this time to ensure it looks it’s best once that healing has finished.
Clients need to keep the lips clean and moisturized, careful not to pick at any chapping.
Clients will clean lips by washing them with warm soap (light cleanser and water.)
Clients should use the aftercare chapstick for 5 - 7 days. If the client loses or misplaces it, clients can use Aquaphor as a backup plan.
Do not use other lip products until healed at least 7 days. Lips will appear light after chapping stage for a week or two and then color will return and settle around week 3-6.
Each client is different, so we recommend a touchup no earlier than 6 weeks.
