Wondering what is Lip Blushing?
Well, Lip blushing is nothing but a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that enhances the color and shape of your lips by depositing pigmented ink with a mechanical needle.
“Lip blushing is a form of semi-permanent tattoo or makeup where people are looking to rejuvenate the color of their lip border or the actual substance of the lip,” says Paul Jarrod Frank, a New York-based celebrity dermatologist.”
Before getting lip blushing, you will have to make sure your lips are healthy, soft, smooth, and hydrated. You will have to prep your lips with daily applications of lip scrub as well as lip balm.
Experts recommend skipping lip blushing if you are:
- taking Accutane, steroids, or blood-thinning medication
- suffering from cold sores
- pregnant or nursing
- prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation
Your lip blushing appointment will start with an in-depth consultation. Your esthetician will discuss your desired goal, outcome, possibilities and then draw the shape of your “new” lips.
Your professional will also create a one-of-a-kind shade for your lips based on your natural pigment and desired look. Once the shape and color are both approved, the procedure will begin.
Experts recommend avoiding caffeinated products, alcoholic drinks as well as blood thinning products for at least 72 hours prior. Also, you cannot receive lip fillers at least 2 weeks before your lip blushing procedure.
The actual tattooing will take around 1-2 hours. A topical anesthetic is generally applied to pre-numb the lips for 20 minutes. After the numbing cream takes effect, your esthetician will start tattooing the pigment on your lips using a mechanical gun. The application should be on the low to moderate pain scale. It should feel like small pin pricks on the skin.
Once the procedure is completed, you may notice some redness as well as swelling on your lips. You can ice them or use cold compresses if necessary. Over the next week, your lips will start healing; so, you need to be prepared for some scabbing during this time. You need to make sure you do not pick on the scabs. If you do so, it may leave scars as well as result in an uneven tone.
The amazing procedure will not only enhance the color of your lips but will also define the shape of the lips and make them look slightly larger. The results will last around 2-3 years, depending on your lifestyle, before requiring a touch-up. The best thing about the procedure is that it is completely safe and can work well on all skin types when done by a qualified and experienced professional.
You can expect lip blushing to cost anywhere from $500-$1,500 per appointment, depending on where you live.
