Lips are much more sensitive than your eyebrows, and hence, you can expect some pain during the procedure. How much pain depends entirely on your pain tolerance and your makeup artist. Our clients rate their pain a 3 or 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. But then, we also had clients with high pain tolerance who claimed that they felt nothing but a slight discomfort.
The pain is minimized with the application of numbing cream. Some makeup artists also administer anesthesia to completely eradicate the pain, however, it might cost some extra amount.
If you are highly concerned with pain, you can also take Tylenol or any other pain reliever before the procedure. Make sure to avoid aspirin and ibuprofen at all costs, since they are well-known blood thinners and can cause even more sensitivity during the procedure. Other supplements to avoid include fish oil and vitamin E, as they are also likely to cause you more pain during the procedure.
We suggest going for an anesthetic as it makes the procedure a painless experience and it also happens much faster. If you feel unbearable pain at any time during the procedure, don’t hesitate to ask your artist to stop and administer more anesthetic or apply some more numbing cream.
Be completely prepared to experience bleeding and swelling during and after the procedure. However, both should subside after a few minutes. After the procedure, it takes about 8-weeks for the lips to completely heal and show the final results.
Your makeup artist will also inform you about the after-care, and over the next couple of days, you’d need lots of balms and antiseptic mouth rinse.
One of the most obvious reasons people prefer lip bushing is due to the rich and healthy color it brings to the lips. The lips appear more defined and shaped and give you natural allure and a sensual appearance. Despite the obvious, there are a couple of benefits of lip blushing. Some of them are:
Yes. We recommend a minimum of 3 weeks between filler and lip blush appointments. Any sooner and lip blush may cause filler migration.
Depending on initial aftercare and long-term care. Over-exfoliation, prolonged sun exposure, and how each client metabolizes the pigment will all play a role. On average clients will have their initial session and second session to achieve the desired result, some clients may need additional sessions. On average a client will notice healed results 1-2 years before refreshers are needed.
Yes. If you have had a cold sore in the past or believe you may be susceptible to them, it is recommended you see your doctor (2 weeks before your appointment). Applying medication prescribed by your doctor before your lip blush service will help to prevent any outbreaks. If an outbreak does occur during healing, it may result in loss of pigment and undesirable patches in pigment affect.
If you have an ideal shape and color in mind, it’s best to bring reference photos with you to your appointment. Please exfoliate your lips and ensure there are no dry patches on your lips before your appointment. We recommend no alcohol or caffeine within 24 hours of your appointment as this can increase your chance of bleeding and will most likely end with a patchy, healed result because of poor implantation of pigment. We suggest you drink plenty of water before your appointment and ensure that your lips are moisturized. We require our clients to avoid any blood thinning medication for a minimum of 72 hours before their appointment. This includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, and Ibuprofen. If you are planning a vacation, we advise you to plan your trip a minimum of 14 days after the procedure. If you have previously been prescribed Accutane, you MUST wait at least one year before considering this procedure. It is recommended that you avoid the sun and tanning bed exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. Showing up for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn will result in having to reschedule until a later date and you will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the pigment with it.
