Lip blush

"Lip blushing is a form of semi-permanent or makeup where people are looking to rejuvenate the colour of their lip border or the actual substance of the lips. It's natural for people to lose colour as they get older, especially women's lips and lip lines. Many women use lip liner to compensate for the loss of colour and lip definition and to give the lips a little plumper appearance. Once performed, this procedure produces very natural results. Lip filler works well for adding volume to your lips, but lip blush offers the appearance of makeup all the time.

Lips blushing will last for 2- 3 years. Follow up treatments are to be done between 4 weeks to 8 weeks following the procedure. Sometimes follow up can be a bit longer depending on the healing of your lip. In most cases lip blush will for 2-3 years and as the years go by the colour will diminish bit by bit and eventually your natural lip colour will appear

Pre care instructions


  • Avoid lip fillers around the lip area.

  • Avoid Glycolic acid, chemical peels, and laser treatments on the face

  • Avoid Retinols and anti-aging creams eg. Retinol


  • Avoid blood thinners

  • Avoid all facials and being in the sun 

  • Keep your lips well hydrated with a good lip balm

  • If you have ever had a cold sore, been prone to any type of cold sores please let your therapist know so that they advise accordingly.


  • Avoid alcohol and coffee

  • Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water (the first sign of dehydration is dry lips)

Post care instructions

1) Intense lip moisturizer to use for 7 days, apply with a clean q-tip a very . Only a very thin layer is needed to allow the lip skin to breathe.

2) Damp gauze to gently dab your lips to remove any lymph fluid every hour for 5 hours after the appointment ONLY for the first day. This is a very important step because if this mostly clear, yellowish fluid is not removed, it can cause scabbing, and more scabbing means less retention of the pigment. Don't be alarmed if a little pigment comes off onto the gauze. That is from the lymph fluid and completely normal.

3) If you should experience swelling, an ice pack may be applied using a thin protective barrier such as a paper towel. Icing is most effective in the first 24 hours following the procedure.

4) If your lips are really sore or swollen, you can take a pain reliever or anti-inflammatory medication 

5) Avoid touching the lip and do not pick scab

Phases of healing after lip blush

Within 21 days, lips go through 3 phases: 

  • 1st phase "looks too dark": About 3 days with chapping (day 1-3)

  • 2nd phase "looks too light": Frosty and loss of colour (days 4-13)

  • 3rd phase "looks just right": Blooming (days 14-21)

Just relax here, your patience is tasted.  It's a process!

Day 1: Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick with a reddish brick colour

Day 2: Slight swelling, reddish and tender with a slightly metallic flavor

Day 3: Less swelling, thicker texture, sore, hot feeling with an orange color effect

Day 4: Exfoliation/Peeling begins causing very chapped lips

Day 5: Very chapped lips but almost finished with the chapping stage

Day 6: A soft, rich colour begins to appear

Day 7-13: Lip colour disappears and the “frosty” stage begins as a white-ish, lighter haze on the lips

Day 14: Colour slowly and gradually develops from within each day until day 21 or about 3 weeks post-procedure

Day 21: Healing is complete. The true color is revealed as you see it. Your lips will remain a bit dry for 1-2 months. Use a good quality lip balm (with SPF of course)!

Long term care

  • Use a good quality lip balm with sunscreen on your lips daily (sunscreens with zinc or titanium dioxide as the first ingredients)

  • Please inform your technician and/or care provider of your permanent cosmetics with any future MRI scans, chemical peels, or laser procedures

  • Any makeup directly on the lips will make the colour appear different


Additional Important Information: 

Please be aware that the result of the procedure is depending on the following: medications and health conditions, skin conditions such as oily, unhealthy, dry/flaky, loose and/or lax skin, poor diet and not following the aftercare instructions. All of these things can affect your healed results. Antacids, thyroid, and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. With that information, an educated client may have better expectations and know that they may need more frequent adjustments than others. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
