WHAT TO EXPECT
After filling out your medical history forms we discuss the result you are hoping to achieve with your lips. Once we have a clear understanding of colour we will show you examples of colours on your lips. Once the colour has been determined the drawing process begins. This is the most important part of the process so please be patient. Some lips take longer than others to get the perfect shape. A cosmetic tattoo machine is then used to implant the pigment. Every lip is different so we recommend allowing 2 hours for the procedure.
Results may vary depending on the client’s exposure to sun and their resistance to pigment, but the pigment will fade during the healing process anywhere from 50-80% in the healing process. Immediately after the procedure your lips will appear very dark/bright and a lot more colour than the desired healed result, they can also continue to darken the following day.
HOW WILL MY LIPS HEAL?
After care product is given to you on the day of the appointment which you will need to use for 5-7 days. Your lips will get extremely flaky, scabby and dry. It is recommended to have your lips done when you will not be as concerned about this as you will not be allowed to pull the scabbing/flakiness off until it is ready to naturally fall off. Please do not have this procedure done a week before a big event or holiday. Your lips will heal in 5 days with all scabbing dropping off within this time. The colour of your lips will then continue to develop over the next 6 weeks. 6 weeks later you will have a touchup appointment to perfect the colour and deposit more pigment to even out the lip colour and add more longevity. Touchups are then recommended every 12months – 2 years to keep your lips looking full and fresh.
