LIP BLUSH ENHANCEMENT
Lip Blush is a great alternative to fillers or surgery or it can be done in conjunction with these procedures. Lip Enhancement is a subtle approach to a fuller lip using naturally toned pigments to blend and shade within the natural lip line. Whether it is the lip design, shape or color you are interested in, we can help you with the choice of either rich definition or subtle shading. View Gallery

7 – 10 days prior to having your Lip Enhancement appointment we recommend taking either lysine or a cold sore preventative as this will reduce the likelihood of cold sores appearing as a result of the lips healing.
On the day of the procedure an anesthetic is applied to the lips before the artist begins the consult and design process. Generally, a deeper colour is chosen for the outline and then a creamier, softer version with almost no colour in the very centre. This gives the illusion of a ‘pout’ although it is important to note that you can never make the colour tone of your lips lighter.
As the micropigmentation is healing the pigment will deepen in colour so it is best to plan your procedure around any important events such as weddings, birthday parties or important business meetings. If you are unsure please check with your consultant before booking.
The pigment is most dramatic 24 – 48 hours after the initial treatment, following which the outer layer of dry skin will begin to peel. Lip Enhancement after-care is minimal. Refrain from touching the area with fingertips and apply a nourishing antiseptic cream twice daily. It is also important to avoid exfoliants, oils, lipsticks and spicy foods for at least one week.
A retouch follow up appointment is recommended within 6 – 8 weeks as this ensures the artist is able to correct any fading inconsistencies and to ensure the lip line looks crisp. This is also an opportunity to make any minor colour changes. After both sessions, you should expect your lips to fade anywhere from 25 – 50% and peeling to occur for 3 – 7 days depending on your skin type.
Lip Enhancement generally lasts between 2-5 years however this depends on your skin’s chemistry, active ingredients in your skincare and exposure to the elements. It is not recommended to have the procedure done with existing remnants of lip fillers or injections as this will alter the result once the fillers wear off. Please allow 7 days before applying any makeup to areas treated by cosmetic tattoo.
