How long does lip blushing/neutralization last?
Lip micropigmentation can last between two to three years depending on the client's body, skin type and lifestyle. Smoking and sun exposure can speed up the fading process, and if you’re oil-prone, have an iron deficiency or use a lot of exfoliating products in your skin regimen, the fading will happen faster.
Lip procedures require two sessions for the desired color and results. During the first session, the main goal is to neutralize the lips so it is even in color. During the second session, another layer of color is added for color results and longevity.
Most of the below circumstances are in direct conflict with a successful and/or safe procedure, but confirmation of eligibility will be assessed on an individual basis:
Additional mental health and/or neurodivergence such as the following will also affect eligibility: extreme anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, OCD, clinical paranoia, trichotillomania, etc.
During your 2nd session, we will go over faded areas + the entire lip to ensure longevity through well-planted pigmented. Think of this session as the final coat to the procedure-it will lock in the initially discussed results.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SECOND SESSION?
We will we book your 6 week follow up at the end of your first appointment.
WHEN WILL I NEED ANOTHER FOLLOW UP AFTER THE SECOND SESSION?
Your next follow up will be every 12-18 months. These appointments will be to color correct over time as the color fades. You may book these as you see fit though we might send an annual reminder.
Be mindful that skincare and lifestyle will also factor into your result longevity. Lip products with SPF will be absolutely essential to the vitality of your lips!
ALL clients prone to cold sores must start a round of anti-viral medication a week prior to appointment. It must be taken until after procedure, when healing is complete. For a prescription, contact a primary physician/dentist. NO EXCEPTIONS. This applies to any & all lip tattoos for anyone who has had cold sores in their lifetime.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY AFFECT THE OUTCOME OF YOUR FINAL RESULTS.
The mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria, so there is higher risk of infection when having a lip procedure done. Avoid eating & drinking for at least 5 hours after your appointment. Do not drink tap water.
