Lips

Lip liner, lip liner with blend, and full lip color. You can do any or all of these at one visit or multiple visits.

IMPORTANT!

If you have EVER had a cold sore or fever blister at any time in your life it is important that you get a prescription for an anti-viral medication from your Doctor, Dermatologist or Dentist before your appointment. You must start taking the prescription 2 to 4 days before the procedure and continue for 2 to 4 days after. Follow your Doctor’s advice.

CAN THIS CAUSE DAMAGE TO MY TEETH, DENTURES, VENEERS OR OTHER DENTAL WORK?

We use a mouth guard during the procedure to protect your teeth from any damage.

HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

You may experience minor to moderate swelling on the procedure day that may last for up to 3 days. The application of ice packs as home will assist in quickly reducing any inflammation and may be used for 24 hours for effective reduction of swelling. The lips are unique in their healing process from any other permanent makeup. The lip tissue does not have a true dermal layer like the rest of the facial and body skin. Immediately after the lip color procedure the color will look like a medium to dark lipstick even if the healed outcome is super natural. This will resolve in about 3-4 days post procedure after a surface layer “peels” and the natural color tone is revealed underneath.

CAN I HAVE LIP LINER ONLY, AND LEAVE THE LIPS NATURAL?

Yes you can BUT this is not stylistically recommended. It is recommended that the lip liner and lip fill-in color be the same. We offer a lip liner with blend that looks much better if you do not want full lip color. This means that the liner is done in the select color tone and then the color is lightly blended in to look like it becomes a part of your own natural lip tone. It avoids that look of lip liner only but gives beautiful definition, fullness and color-enhancement to a natural lip tone.

CAN I STILL WEAR REGULAR LIPSTICK IF I WANT TO CHANGE THE COLOR SOMETIMES?

Absolutely! Since the permanent lip color is implanted within the lip tissue, you can wear any color you wish over the top and still get variety in your look. The lipstick will “cancel” out the color of the permanent lip makeup.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE THE HEALED RESULTS?

Lip color is unique. For all other areas of permanent makeup, you will heal in approximately 5-10 days with the final result visible at that point. Due to the nature of the lip tissue which is not the same physiological makeup of the rest of the facial or body skin, you can expect that it will be much darker for 3-4 days, you will have a “peeling” process (much like having chapped lips) for a day or so, and then the color will actually appear too light. The initial reaction will be wishing you have chosen a darker, brighter or less natural color. Not to worry – the color is sharing the same space as the blood flow in the lip membrane. It take 3-4 weeks for the color to find a permanent “home” in that lip tissue and develop into the true healed intensity desired. After 4-6 weeks you will return for a follow-up visit to check the results and it is sometimes necessary to have a minor touch up to perfect the results.

I HAVE LIP FILLER INJECTIONS ALREADY. CAN I STILL GET PERMANENT LIP COLOR?

Yes, but it is important to share this information with your permanent makeup technician. The filler and the color will be sharing the same space within the lip tissue. Color selection can need adjustments to ensure that the long-term color results don’t change. It is recommended that the color be implanted first, and after it is healed get the lip augmentation. This ensures proper placement and symmetry of the lip filler that nicely compliments the shape and symmetry of the permanent color.

I AM PLANNING A COSMETIC FACIAL PROCEDURE. SHOULD I WAIT UNTIL AFTER THAT FOR MY PERMANENT MAKEUP?

It is often advised that you have your permanent makeup first. You will have great guidelines to ensure symmetry and placement when adjusting facial structure as is done in a face or brow-lift. When having lip augmentation with temporary or more permanent fillers, I like to do the lip color first. This gives the doctor beautiful guidelines to follow for symmetry and fullness. The other bonus is that you look better when you are healing from surgery while you are not allowed to wear traditional makeup.

 

If you have surgery first, you need to wait until your doctor clears you to have any procedures done, usually 6-12 weeks.

I AM PLANNING ON SOME LASER FACIAL REJUVENATION TREATMENTS. CAN I DO THIS AFTER HAVING PERMANENT MAKEUP?

You may have laser treatments such as IPL for photodamage, fraxel-type lasers for skin tightening and skin restoration but you need to inform the medical professional that you have permanent makeup. Certain colors can turn to an undesirable shade or get lightened or removed. It is simply avoiding direct contact between the laser and the permanent makeup areas.

I HEARD THAT YOU CAN’T HAVE AN MRI IF YOU HAVE PERMANENT MAKEUP. IS THIS TRUE?

No. You can safely have an MRI even if you have permanent makeup. In rare, isolated cases of facial/head MRI scans, a warm sensation can manifest in the makeup areas. Statistical data indicates this is rare and usually related to heavy dark eyeliner. Simply tell the MRI technician that you have had permanent makeup (or any form of tattooing) so they know to watch for any unusual reactions.
