Lip Blushing

Treatment Details

Lip blushing, a semi-permanent tattooing method designed to enhance the natural color and shape of your mouth for one to two years. Leaving your lips Lush and beautiful with no smudging and minimal attention needed.  Using a method called pixilation, the Licensed Permanent Makeup Technician deposits small, undetectable dots of pigment to line and shade. The result is a color that looks as if it could be your own—but with a boost (and a more pronounced shape). This procedure uses organic pigments and modern, digital tools that feature several needle configurations instead of one harsh setting.

Important Information:

What should I expect the day of my appointment?

The appointment will start with us picking out the perfect colour for your lips.  Next we start the pre-draw, during the pre-draw we will work with your feedback to create the lip shape of your dreams.  Next we will pre numb your lips for 20 minutes, once your lips are numb the implanting of pigment will start.  Throughout the session we use a secondary anesthetic to reduce pain, swelling and redness so you are guaranteed to be comfortable.  The total appointment time takes 3 hours, implanting the pigment takes 1 – 1.5 hours.  After the session we will go over the aftercare instructions and you will receive an aftercare kit with cleanser, healing gel and a cool pack for swelling. 

How should I prepare for my appointment?

For one week prior drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, keep your lips moisturized and scrub away any dry skin daily.  We cannot implant pigment into dry lips.  We like to use Aquaphor for a moisturizer and coconut oil and sugar for a scrub.  If you are prone to cold sores you must take an antiviral medication prescribed by your doctor before and after your appointment.

What is the healing like?

Your lips will look like you’re wearing lip colour for the first few days .  Once they have healed they will lighten 50 – 60% and after 4 weeks you can decide if you would like to come in for a touch up.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the downtime?

The only downtime after lip blush is the swelling which will subside within 24 hours.  A lot of our clients say it’s down within a few hours or by the next morning. 

How long does it last?

It lasts 2-5 years which its dependent on lip blush technique, age, skin type and lifestyle.  Also, pigments used in permanent makeup are designed to fade over time.  This allows us to change shape and colour as we age.

Does it hurt?

Everyone experiences pain differently so unfortunately we cannot tell you if you’ll find it painful but our lip blush techniques are non invasive and we numb you before and during the session so a lot of our clients fall asleep. We promise to keep you comfortable.

I have fillers, can I get lip blush?

Yes!  Lip blush and fillers are a great combo.  Lip filler can stretch the border of your lip, leaving it light and without definition.  Lip blush will restore the definition, symmetry and colour to your lips.  You just have to wait 4 weeks in between your appointments.

How do we choose a colour?

It’s easier than you think!  We have a system that allows us to find the perfect colour and we swatch it directly on your lip for you to approve.  We have a section of base lip blush colours and any of these can be mixed to create a custom colour.  We can create the perfect colour for you wether it’s soft or bold and we can also match your favourite lip colour.

Can I get lip blush if I’m prone to cold sores?

Yes you can!  You just have to take an antiviral medication prescribed by your doctor before and after your appointment to prevent an outbreak.
