Lip Blush Healing Process 

Day 1-3: Lips are swollen, color is very bright. Advil can be taken to reduce pain & swelling

Day 4-8: Color will begin to dry & darken as pigment oxidizes. Lips will be extremely dry and flaky. Areas where lips are most used or folded will start to shed first. Likely the inner area of the lips 

Day 8-10: As your lips flake the color will appear extremely faded, light and frosty looking

Day 10-30: As the dead skin flakes the pigment is setting into the lower layers of the skin and will "bloom" be patient 

Touch Up: A touch up is most likely necessary to re-pigment areas such as scarred areas, areas that are frequently moist, and areas with deep folds. Clients who want to achieve lip Neutralization will likely need to attend 3 touch up sessions to achieve desired results.

Month 3-6: As the pigment settles into the skin and all the dead skin is shed you will notice a smoother more even apperance!

Aftercare for lip blush, or lip tattooing, is essential to ensure proper healing and the longevity of the results. Here are some general aftercare tips:

Keep the area clean: Gently clean the lips with a mild, fragrance-free cleanser or saline solution to remove any debris or dried blood. Use a clean cotton pad or swab to apply the cleanser.

Avoid touching: Refrain from touching your lips with your hands to prevent introducing bacteria or irritating the treated area. Apply recommended ointment: Your technician may provide you with a special ointment to apply to your lips to keep them moisturized and aid in healing. Follow their instructions regarding application frequency and duration.

Avoid moisture: Avoid getting the treated area wet for the first few days after the procedure. This includes avoiding swimming, saunas, steam rooms, and excessive sweating.

Avoid sun exposure: Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to fade prematurely. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and apply a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips from the sun.

Avoid certain foods and drinks: Spicy, acidic, and hot foods and drinks may irritate the treated area. Stick to a soft, bland diet for the first few days. Avoid makeup: Refrain from applying lipstick, lip gloss, or any other makeup to the treated area until it has fully healed. This usually takes about 1-2 weeks.

Don't pick or peel: It's normal for the lips to scab and peel during the healing process. Avoid picking or peeling off any scabs, as this can cause pigment loss and scarring.

Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated, which can help with the healing process.

Follow up with your technician: Schedule a follow-up appointment with your technician as recommended. They can assess the healing process and perform any necessary touch-ups.

Remember, everyone's healing process may vary slightly, so it's essential to follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your technician. If you experience any unusual pain, swelling, or signs of infection, contact your technician or a healthcare professional immediately.

Remember: Lip Neutralization requires multiple sessions depending on the level of pigmentation.
