What is lip blushing?

Lip blushing is a natural enhancement of the shape of your lips giving them a boost or vitality and color.  It is semi permanent and subtle, though it still defines and contours the lips and can camouflage scars.  Results yield a subtle, matte, natural toned look.

 

Does it hurt?

Everyone’s pain tolerances vary, so we use two different types of numbing in the procedure.  We use a topical numbing cream before the procedure starts, and then a numbing gel throughout.  You can take Tylenol or any form of acetaminophen ONLY before your appointment to help with pain. 

 

Will there be swelling?

Swelling is to be expected during and after the procedure which is totally normal.  It varies person to person, but there is usually a little more in the upper lip.  It will gradually fade post treatment from 24 hours after to three days.

 

What can I do to help reduce swelling?

There are many things you can do to help avoid excessive swelling.  Before the procedure, avoid any supplements with blood thinning effects that include but are not limited to fish oil, garlic, ginger, ginko bilboa, ginseng, green tea, red clover, and vitamin E.  Discontinue these 7 days before your appointment. It is also important to avoid blood thinning medications if possible 7 days before and 1 day after the procedure.  This includes but is not limited to aspirin, midol, excedrin, Advil, Motrin, naproxen, Aleve.

 

If you are not able to discontinue any blood thinning medications, you will have an increased risk of bruising.

 

No alcohol 24 hours before appointment.

 

What is the healing process like? 

 After the procedure,  expect to have swelling and possible bruising.  This will subside 24 hours to 3 days after.  Day 3-5, your lips will be flakey and dry. Do not pick your scabs! You should be through the scabbing by day 10 and can treat them as normal after that.  The color is considered to be “blooming” until 6 weeks post procedure, so do not be alarmed if color appears extremely light until then.  Touch up is done 6-8 weeks after the first session.

 

Can I get lip blushing if I experience cold sores?

Yes!  Cold sores can flare up post procedure, so if you have had them in the past, being proactive to prevent them is encouraged.  Consult with your physician to receive valtrex or L-lysine.  

 

 

Can I get lip blushing if I have had lip filler?

Yes! please have 4 weeks before or after your lip blush appointment to receive any lip filler.

 

What if I have lots of dry skin on my lips?

Please exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to your Appointment if you experience dry skin.  An easy at home exfoliation is to use coconut oil and sugar mixed together, rinse, and apply balm.  Do this for 7 days before your appt.
