After care:

Immediately after a Lip Blush Micropigmentation procedure the area treated will look about 50% darker than the final results. This is temporary; the colour will lighten and soften over 14 days. It is normal for the area to feel slightly tender or dry. Expect the lip to be slightly tender 1-3 days. Swelling is minimal and with most people it will subside within 24 hours.

  • Cold pads can be applied to minimise swelling.
  • Do not use any lipsticks for 14 days
  • Avoid swimming pools, the beach, steam rooms and saunas during the healing process (14 days) Steam will open pores and may make the colour bleed out.
  • Apply vitamin E Oil every two hours
  • Bath or shower as normal — NO SOAP or CLEANSERS on the treated area for one day.
  • Keep your hands away from your lips to prevent the possibility of infection.
  • If you are prone to cold sores – apply cold sore cream for 7 days. We recommend that in addition take cold sore preventive supplements as an additional precaution.
  • Do not receive, electrolysis or laser hair removal close to the lip area
