It is an extremely popular semi-permanent make up treatment providing a flush of color as well as defining the lip contours. Lip Blush treatment is a combination of lip liner and lip color. The use of a soft lip liner can redefine the shape of lips and corrections in asymmetry and shape.

Preparing for Your Procedure Appointment:
You should allow at least 3 hours for your initial procedure. If you remove facial hair around your lips by tweezing, shaving, threading, or waxing, that should be done a few days before your appointment. Electrolysis or laser hair removal should be completed 5 to 7 days before. You should wear and bring your favorite color lipstick or lip pencil for color matching. Additional preparation guidelines will be given to you when you schedule your procedure appointment.
If you are planning a lip color procedure and have ever experienced a cold sore, even one time in your life, it is recommended you obtain a prescribed anti-viral medication (Valtrex 2000mg). The medication must be taken the day before and the day of your treatment. Even if you have never experienced a cold sore during your lifetime, it is recommended that you obtain an anti-viral medication (Valtrex) to be on the safe side.
During Your Permanent Lip Color Procedure:
You will fill out forms including a medical history that Shasha will review. She will evaluate the shape of your face and lips including their symmetry and fullness. Shasha will discuss techniques and colors with you. After the best design and color have been determined, a topical anesthetic will be applied to numb your lips. The final pattern will then be drawn and approved by you as the template will follow during your procedure. She will continue to apply anesthetics during the process to keep you comfortable. Before and after photos will also be taken for your confidential file with your colors recorded for future references.
After Your Permanent Lip Color Procedure:
You lips may be temporarily swollen or tender right after your procedure. Your lip color will definitely be brighter and darker than what you want. It will lighten a lot after your lips heal 5 to 7 days. The color will continue to soften and stabilize over the next several weeks. Your lips may be bright and slightly larger than normal (from swelling) during the first week of healing, so you should keep this in mind when scheduling your procedure.
Follow-up and Maintenance Appointments:
Your lips will gradually lighten and the color will stabilize over several weeks following your procedure. Lip tissue is different from regular skin, so it loses the most color following an initial tattooing procedure. Your lips will probably heal lighter than you want, but they can be darkened with a second application of pigment at a follow-up visit (“touch-up”). A follow-up might be needed to adjust shape or add color to areas that healed lighter from tissue swelling and bleeding during the tattooing process. Ideally, your second visit should be completed between 6 to 8 weeks post procedure. Because permanent makeup can fade over time, you can schedule maintenance visits every few years to keep your color looking fresh.
