ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED



WHAT IS LIP BLUSHING?


LIP BLUSHING IS A SEMI-PERMANENT TATTOO, THIS TREATMENT IS AN AMAZING ALTERNATIVE TO LIP FILLERS/SURGERY OR IT CAN ALSO BE DONE IN CONJUCTION WITH THOSE PROCEDURES TO MAXIMIZE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF LIP ENHANCEMENT TREATMENTS!


DURING YOUR CONSULT WE WILL DISCUS THE PIGMENT & STYLE YOU ARE WANTING. WETHER IT BE A BLEND, CONTOURED, OR FULL LIP COLOR, IT’S ENTIRELY CUSTOMIZED TO FIT YOU! IT TAKES ABOUT 6-8 WEEKS FOR FULL HEALING AFTER THE INITIAL LIP BLUSHING SESSION. THE COLOR WILL FADE ABOUT 50-70%.


OUR LIP BLUSHING METHODS AT FACE HAVEN CREATE A SOFT AND NATURAL BLENDING OF PIGMENT COLOR INTO THE LIPS. THERE IS NO DEMARCATION, JUST SOFT BEAUTIFUL BLUSHING, ENHANCING THE FULLNESS OF THE LIPS. THIS IS A MULTIPLE-STEP PROCESS DONE IN A MINIMUM OF TWO SESSIONS. LIP BLUSHING CAN LAST APPROXIMATELY 1-3 YEARS AND WILL VARY DEPENDING ON SKIN TYPE AND LIFESTYLE.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LIP BLUSHING?

Q & As



                         LIP FILLER


I’VE ALREADY HAD MY LIPS INJECTED CAN I DO LIP BLUSHING? LIP FILLERS ARE GREAT PAIRING WITH LIP BLUSHING SINCE IT CAN HELP PERFECT THE OVERALL SHAPE! IF YOU’VE ALREADY GOTTEN LIP FILLERS, PLEASE WAIT A MINIMUM OF 4 WEEKS AFTER INJECTIONS, BEFORE SCHEDULING A LIP BLUSHING TREATMENT.



                         UNEVEN LIPS

MY LIPS ARE NATURALLY UNEVEN, CAN THIS BE FIXED WITH LIP BLUSHING? LIP BLUSHING CAN DEFINITELY HELP SOFTEN THE APPEARANCE OF ASYMMETRY, HOWEVER IT CAN ONLY BE BLADED A 1-2 MILLIMETERS FROM NATURAL LIP CONTOUR FOR INK TO DEPOSIT CORRECTLY. DURING YOUR SESSION IT CAN BE DISCUSSED WITH YOU ON WHAT IS REALISTIC TO ACHIEVE.



                         DISCOLORATION

I HAVE DISCOLORATION, CAN I STILL DO LIP BLUSH? YES! LIP BLUSHING IS STILL AN AMAZING OPTION, AGAIN JUST KEEP IN MIND IT WILL FOR SURE BE MORE THAN 2 SESSIONS TO CAMOUFLAGE DISCOLORATION. & THE FIRST SESSION MUST BE ORANGE. THERE’S NO WAY AROUND IT. IF WE TRY TO PUT ANY COLOR BEFORE IT IS CORRECTED IT MAY TURN ASHY/DARK BROWN AND IS JUST NOT FLATTERING.



                           NOT CANDIDATE

WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LIP BLUSHING?

  • UNDER THE AGE OF 18

  • PREGNANT OR NURSING. WHY? THIS EFFECTS RETENTION.

  • HAVE BEEN ON ACCUTANE WITHIN THE PAST YEAR

  • CURRENTLY UNDERGOING CHEMOTHERAPY

  • HIV OR HEPATITIS OR ANY OTHER INFECTIONS OR VIRAL DISEASES


                              NUMBING

DOES IT HURT?

EVERYONES RESPONSE TO PAIN AND LIDOCAINE IS DIFFERENT. SO A GOOD QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF IS… WHEN YOU’RE AT THE DENTIST, DO THEY NEED TO NUMB YOU A FEW TIMES? IF SO, YOU’RE PROBABLY SOMEONE WHO MAY FEEL MORE SENSATION VERSUS SOMEONE WHO HAS A HIGHER PAIN TOLERANCE. MOSTLY I HEAR FROM MY CLIENTS THAT THE TREATMENT IS “TOLERABLE” AND THAT THERE ARE SOME SPOTS THAT ARE MORE SENSITIVE THAN OTHERS. DURING YOUR LIP ENHANCEMENT SESSION A HIGHLY EFFECTIVE MEDICAL GRADE TOPICAL NUMBING IS USED TO MINIMIZE THE PAIN AND KEEP YOU COMFORTABLE.



                            LIP COLOUR   

HOW IS MY COLOR CHOSEN?

THE BEST PART! PICKING OUT YOUR PERFECT LIP PIGMENT, ITS KINDA A DIVINE PARTNERSHIP. THIS IS WHY TIME IS ALLOTTED TO DISCUSSING IT DURING YOUR TREATMENT, WE WILL GO OVER COLOR SWATCHES THAT PAIR PERFECTLY BASED ON YOUR SKIN AND LIP TONE.

                PRE CARE BEFORE YOUR APPOINMENT

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE MY LIP BLUSHING APPOINTMENT? AS A NECESSARY PRECAUTION FOR CLIENTS WHO HAVE OR HAVE EVER HAD A COLD SORE OUT BREAK, YOU’LL BE REQUIRED TO TAKE AN ANTI-VIRAL MEDICATION FOR A TOTAL OF 5 DAYS (2 DAYS PRIOR TO PROCEDURE, 1 DAY-OF, AND 2 DAYS POST-PROCEDURE). EXAMPLES OF ANTIVIRAL MEDICATIONS: ZOVIRAX, FAMVIR OR VALTREX. THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE! FOR THOSE THAT HAVE COLD SORES THIS RULE WILL HOLD TRUE EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU HAVE YOUR LIPS TATTOOED. YOU WILL NEED TO CONTACT YOUR PHYSICIAN IN ORDER TO OBTAIN YOUR PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH ANTI-VIRAL MEDICATION. YOU MUST INFORM THEM OF YOUR DECISION TO HAVE PERMANENT COSMETICS APPLIED TO YOUR LIPS AND THEY WILL NEED TO CALL YOUR PRESCRIPTION IN FOR YOU TO PICK UP AT YOUR PHARMACY.


PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS ARE DESIGNED TO LIMIT BLEEDING AND SKIN SENSITIVITIES DURING THE TREATMENT. THE PRODUCTS LISTED NOT TO USE 24 HOURS PRIOR TO TREATMENT IS BECAUSE THEY CONTRIBUTE TO THINNING OUT THE BLOOD. OUR LIPS ONLY HAVE 3-5 CELLULAR LAYERS WHERE AS OTHER AREAS OF OUR BODY HAVE UP TO 16, THIS IS WHY OUR LIPS ARE MUCH MORE SENSITIVE AND TEND TO BLEED EASIER. EXCESS BLEEDING DURING THE PROCEDURE WILL DILUTE AND EXPEL THE PIGMENT COLOR AND LEAD TO POOR RESULTS/RETENTION.

PRO TIP:

* HAVING THIS SERVICE PERFORMED DURING YOUR MENSTRUAL CYCLE MAY INCREASE DISCOMFORT DURING YOUR PROCEDURE.


PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE, AVOID THE FOLLOWING:

  • ASPIRIN, IBUPROFEN, ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

  • CAFFEINE (COFFEE AND TEA)

  • FISH OIL

  • NIACIN

  • VITAMIN E

  • ALCOHOL


                          AFTER TREATMENT

WHAT WILL MY LIPS LOOK LIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER?

YOUR LIPS WILL LOOK SWOLLEN AND SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN NORMAL. THE DEGREE OF SWELLING VARIES FROM PERSON TO PERSON. THE LIP PIGMENT WILL LOOK DARKER INITIALLY. ONCE THE SWELLING HAS REDUCED YOUR LIPS WILL RETURN TO THEIR NORMAL SIZE AND THE COLOR WILL FADE UP TO 50% WITHIN THE FIRST 4 DAYS. COLOR IS FIRST LOST ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR LIPS, AND THE EDGES LAST. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROCEDURE LIPS TEND TO FEEL DRY, TIGHT, AND TENDER TO THE TOUCH. SIMILAR TO A SUNBURN SENSATION.


WHAT IS THE HEALING PROCESS LIKE? EXPECT MODERATE SWELLING FOR UP TO THREE DAYS FOLLOWING THE PROCEDURE. THE FLAKINESS MAY MAKE THE LIPS FEEL THICK. WHILE HEALING YOU LIP COLOR WILL LOOK SPOTTY. THIS IS DUE TO OXIDATION OF THE PIGMENT AND THE REGENERATION OF THE SKIN. THE FIRST 7 DAYS ARE WHAT I LIKE TO CALL “THE UGLY STAGE.”


LIP BLUSHING HEALING STAGES:

  1. INITIALLY THEY WILL BE BRIGHT, SWOLLEN, MAY BRUISE, AND TENDERNESS (ALL VARIOUS DEGREES DEPENDING ON EACH INDIVIDUAL)

  2. LIPS WILL BEGIN TO CRUST AND PEEL (DON’T PICK IT!)

  3. COLOR WILL THEN “FADE AWAY” BUT REALLY, IT’S BEING PROTECTED BY A LAYER OF TISSUE WHICH IN TIME, WILL DEVELOP TO ITS TRUE COLOR

  4. 6-8 WEEKS AFTER TREATMENT THE COLOR WILL HAVE FADED ABOUT 50-70% (VARIES DEPENDING ON INDIVIDUAL)

  5. YOU’RE READY FOR YOUR TOUCH-UP WHERE WE WILL PERFECT


                       TOUCH UPS & RETENTION

HOW LONG DOES LIP BLUSHING LAST?

LIP BLUSHING PIGMENT REMAINS IN YOUR SKIN, BUT WILL FADE OVER TIME. DUE TO THE LIPS BEING VERY VASCULAR AND METABOLIZING PIGMENT AT A RAPID RATE COMPARED TO OTHER BODY PARTS WHICH ARE NOT AS VASCULARIZED IT DOES REQUIRE MORE FREQUENT TOUCH-UPS. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO GET A TOUCH UP ANNUALLY. RESULTS VARY PERSON TO PERSON AS EACH INDIVIDUALS SKIN TYPE IS UNIQUE. EACH INDIVIDUAL SKIN HOLDS PIGMENTS DIFFERENTLY AND BREAKS THEM DOWN AT DIFFERENT RATES. AT YOUR ENHANCEMENT SESSION WE WILL ASSESS HOW YOUR SKIN HAS RECEIVED AND RETAINED THE PIGMENT AND MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS IF NECESSARY. TWO APPOINTMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED INITIALLY. EACH OF THESE APPOINTMENTS BEING 6-12 WEEKS APART.


WHY DO I HAVE TO SCHEDULE 2 SESSIONS?

EVERYONE HEALS DIFFERENTLY AND OF COURSE AT DIFFERENT RATES. IF YOUR COSMETIC TATTOO DOES NOT HEAL PERFECTLY THE FIRST TIME, DON’T WORRY! WE CAN ALWAYS MAKE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO GET THEM ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.


WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED MORE THAN 2 SESSIONS?

WE HAVE SPECIAL RATES FOR ADDITIONAL TOUCH-UPS FOR RETURNING CLIENTS ONLY. IF YOU HAVE HAD PREVIOUS WORK DONE SOMEWHERE ELSE, YOU WILL NEED TO SCHEDULE THE FIRST LIP BLUSHING SESSIONS.


                             ODDS AND ENDS


IS THIS THE SAME PROCEDURE AS MICROBLADING? LIP BLUSHING AND MICROBLADING ARE SIMILAR AS THEY BOTH USE A MACHINE TO INSERT PIGMENT INTO THE LIPS OR BROWS. HOWEVER THE NEEDLE USED DURING LIP BLUSHING IS A SINGLE NEEDLE WHEREAS MICROBLADING USES A BUNDLE OF NEEDLES. MICROBLADING CAN BE PERFORMED MANUALLY OR WITH A MACHINE WHEREAS LIP BLUSH IS BY MACHINE ONLY.


WHAT FACTORS WILL AFFECT HOW MY LIP BLUSHING LOOKS?

EXCESSIVE BLEEDING DURING A LIP BLUSHING PROCEDURE WILL DILUTE THE PIGMENT AND CAUSE POOR ABSORPTION. CAFFEINE, ALCOHOL, AND CERTAIN MEDICATIONS OR VITAMINS MAY ACT AS STIMULANTS AND/OR BLOOD-THINNERS. THEY SHOULD AVOIDED FOR A MINIMUM 48 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.

SUN EXPOSURE: THE SUN CAN SOFTEN THE LOOK OF YOUR LIP TATTOO.

LIFESTYLE: SMOKING, TANNING, OR ANYONE WITH SKIN THAT IS IN A STATE OF DISTRESS MAY HAVE LESS DESIRABLE RESULTS.

IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU AVOID TANNING BED EXPOSURE FOR 30 DAYS BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE. IF YOU SHOW UP FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW TAN OR A SUNBURN, YOU WILL NEED TO RESCHEDULE AND PAY A RESCHEDULING FEE. AS YOUR SKIN EXFOLIATES FROM A SUNBURN, IT WILL TAKE THE PIGMENT WITH IT.


LONG TERM AFTERCARE?

  • IF YOU ARE RECEIVING AN MRI , PLEASE INFORM THE TECHNICIAN THAT YOU HAVE HAD AN IRON-OXIDE COSMETIC TATTOO.

  • IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO HAVE LASER TREATMENTS, YOU MUST COVER YOUR LIP TATTOO WITH 20% ZINC OXIDE TO AVOID PREMATURE FADING OF YOUR TATTOO.

  • IF YOU ARE APPLYING ACIDIC OR BRIGHTENING SKINCARE (AHA’S, RETINOL, PEELS, GLYCOLICS, SALICYLIC ACID, ETC.) PLEASE FIRST COVER Y

  • OUR LIP TATTOO WITH VASELINE TO AVOID PREMATURE PIGMENT FADING
