LIP BLUSHING

Preparation

  • If you have a history of cold sores, it is essential to see a health consultant (pharmacist or Doctor) at least 4-days prior to treatment, and request preventative intervention.

  • Ensure the lip area is not sunburnt, damaged, chapped or too dry.

  • Gently exfoliate 1-week prior to treatment and sleep with a hydrating product (e.g. PawPaw balm, lip treatment or Bepanthen) on the lip area.

  • Repeat the above step every second night until the day of treatment.

  • Avoid Laser within 2-weeks of your appointment.

  • You’ll need to avoid laser on or near the lip area post-tattooing. I recommend ensuring any laser treatment courses are completed prior to having Lip Blushing.

Aftercare

  • Swelling may be expected after treatment. This normally subsides throughout the day, however, may last 3-5 days.

  • Apply a cold compress or ice to the area immediately after treatment, for just a few minutes, and repeat every few hours that day.

  • Avoid applying ice directly to exposed skin, a clean tissue may be used as a barrier.

  • Avoid consuming hot drinks or alcohol for the first few days post-treatment.

  • Using a clean cotton tip, apply a very thin layer of recommended Aftercare product to the area, regularly, throughout the day.

  • Do not apply makeup to the area or touch with fingers until healed (1 week).

  • Dryness, flaking, and peeling may be expected within the first few days and is normally completed within a week.

  • The colour normally disappears at first, due to the changes in new skin. Colour will return at around 7-weeks.

  • If you experience symptoms of cold sores, inflammation, or tenderness at the treated area, notify your Artist and consult a pharmacist immediately.

  • Return for a touch up at 8-weeks.
