Lip blushing tattoo procedure

A lip blushing procedure is similar to lip tattooing. It’s accomplished in the following way:

  1. First, your provider will numb your lips so that you’ll feel less pain and discomfort.
  2. While you’re waiting for the numbing agent to take full effect, your provider will go over your desired lip shape and tone, as well as any sketches that need your approval.
  3. Next, they’ll insert a natural-looking pigment into your lips using small needles. This is done in multiple layers to help create an even tone.
  4. In all, the process can take between 1 and 3 hours.

Does lip blushing hurt?

Your provider will apply a numbing product to your lips beforehand to help minimize pain and discomfort.

The lower your pain tolerance, the more discomfort you might feel. However, some people may not feel much pain at all. You may consider taking acetaminophen before your appointment to decrease your chances of feeling pain.

Avoid taking naproxen, ibuprofen, or aspirin beforehand, as well as supplements like fish oil, garlic, gingko, and vitamin E — these can increase bleeding and bruising.

How permanent is it?

Lip blushing is considered a semipermanent procedure. This means you’ll need to repeat the process every few years to maintain your results.

Frequent lip exfoliation, sun exposure, and smoking can all make the pigment fade quicker

Through the healing process, the color of newly tattooed lips can fade at approximately 40-50% the original color. During the first couple of days and possibly the first week post treatment, the color will become quite faint, however, the color will continue to return slow, and up to 3 months in some cases.

High Melanin lip tattoo treatments – for darker lips, your course of lip tattoo lightening treatment may take between 2-3 sessions to achieve a desired lightened result. On the rare occasions where the natural lip color darker, a 4th treatment touch up session may apply, which will incur a small fee.
