Marble Surface

Lip Blush After Care

Immediately After:

  • The area will feel a bit sore and swollen immediately after. This will subside in the first 1-2 days. There may be some minor bruising that only lasts for 1-3 days. The lips will also appear much brighter and more intensely pigmented immediately after,  remember that your lips will fade about 40-60% during the healing process , so be patient!

  • The scab will fall off within 3-10 days depending on your skin and how you care for them.

  •  Fluids will leak from the tattoo to form scabs. You do not want these fluids to sit on your tattoo and form these scabs. You will want to wipe your tattoo every hour with the provided clean Q-tips. You may ice the skin if it is feeling tender or swollen after the procedure. Wrap an ice pack or a ziplock of ice in a napkin and place on the area for as long as desired.

  • THE SAME NIGHT/EVERY MORNING & NIGHT FOR THE NEXT 10 DAYS with clean hands and a clean cotton pad, gently cleanse your lips with a perfume free/paraban free cleanser. Rinse with sterile water ( boil some water and keep it in a container) Apply the provided after care ointment. 

Day 2-10 ( Scabbing Phase) :

  • Do not touch your tattoo with dirty fingers, remember it is an opened and healing wound. An infection could possibly ruin the tattoo.

  • Don't get your tattoo wet for too long. It will make the scabs soggy and easier to fall off prematurely. Remember, you want to keep the scabs on for as long as you can, let them fall off naturally.

  • Moisturize with the recommended or provided ointment. Do not sleep on your face to avoid lifting your scabs prematurely and make sure you’re sleeping on a clean pillowcase to avoid infection.

  • Avoid harsh cleansers, creams, makeup, or any other products on the treated area until all the scabs have naturally fallen off. These things can jeopardize the healing of the tattoo.

  • Don’t pick, scratch or bite off the scabs. Let the scabs fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring, loss of pigment, or an infection.

  • Do not expose your tattoo to UV rays or tanning beds for 4 weeks after the procedure. These things can alter the appearance of your tattoo dramatically.

  • Do not sweat on the tattoo until all the scabs have come off naturally. Sweat will take the pigment from your tattoo. If you do sweat on them, dab it off immediately.

  • Do not get any facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks post appointment date

 

2-6 Weeks (Post Scabbing Phase) :

  • Once the scabs have completely fallen off, you may apply makeup over the area and return back to your normal routine. Note that after the scabs come off your tattoo may have a milky/grey hue to it. This just means that the surface skin is healed but the underneath layers still need time to heal. The complete healing process takes 6 weeks. At 6 weeks the true and final color of the tattoo will show. Touch up appointments can be done during the 4-6 week period.

  • Please note that your tattoo will be softer and not as crisp when healed.

  • Note that results will vary with each individual and are extremely dependent on your skin and how you care for it during healing phase.  4-6 week touch up appointments are required to ensure even pigmentation as well as lasting results.

 

Once Fully Healed:

  • It is strongly recommend that you do not use any of the

    following on your tattoo: Benzoyl Peroxide, Hydrogen Peroxide, Glycolic acid, Apple cider vinegar, Vitamin E and C, and Retinol. these products can lighten or fade your tattoo faster. We also recommend wearing sunscreen as the UV rays will deteriorate the pigment and lighten or fade the tattoo faster as well. Salt water and chlorine can also deteriorate the pigment faster as well. Rinse with water after contact.

  • If you are having any laser or facial beauty treatments please inform your technician before procedures that you have a permanent makeup tattoo.

  • This treatment does fade after 1-3 years depending on your skin and lifestyle. Touch-ups are necessary to maintain the longevity and overall beauty of your tattoo. If you have oily skin, an iron deficiency, or a very strong immune system, your pigment will not last as long and will not heal as crisp as others.

  • Coverup works may need additional appointments to have better results as it is possible that the "coverup" tattoo may not completely cover the old one.
