Lip Blush Healing Process

Day 1: Lips are swollen & sore, colour is bright & bold

Day 2: Minor swelling may still be present, lips feel tight, colour has darkened

Day 3-7: Lips begin to peel & flake (no picking!), the colour underneath will appear very soft, lips feel dry (moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!)

4-6 weeks: Colour will “blossom” and slowly return, may appear patchy in some areas. Continue to moisturize!

8 weeks: Touch up day to even/adjust colour & perfect symmetry!

Aftercare:

  • Use clean Q-TIPS to apply antibiotic ointment 3 times daily for 3 days. After 3 days, you can continue to use what is left or use a lip balm to keep them moisturized.
  • Avoid eating spicy and salty food. Use straw to drink for the first few days
  • No direct sun exposure while healing (3-4 weeks) 
  • Avoid soaps/facial cleansers/water/on pigmented areas (wash around them) for 10-14 days.
  • No cosmetics in the area for at least 7-10 days as cosmetics can alter the desired color.
  • DO NOT directly shower the treated area for 10-14 days.
  • DO NOT rub, scratch or pick any crust along the tattooed area. Early removal of pigment crusts may result in lost color.
  • Avoid swimming and exfoliating for at least 2 weeks.
  • Avoid applying exfoliates or AHA/glycolic acid products to the tattooed area for at least 2 weeks.

Long Term Care:

  • Use a good sunscreen daily on tattooed area, otherwise the color will fade faster.
  • Our pigment is iron-oxide based, which your body absorbs as mineral irons, so the color will fade over time. You may need a touch-up every 1-3 years. The fading speed depends on your skin type. Example: Pigment applied to oily skin will fade quicker.
  • If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI or other medical procedure, please say that you had an iron-oxide cosmetic tattoo.
  • If you are planning to have laser treatment, tell your laser specialist to avoid the pigmented area. Laser may cause the pigment to turn black.
