What is Lip Blushing / Aquarelle Lips?
Lip blushing is a semi-permanent lip tattoo. Not quite like a lipstick, It's designed to enhance your lip tone so although it appears bright at first this will fade by 50% to a sheer soft blush effect. Its a perfect enhancement without looking overdone. Lip Blushing makes your lips have an illusion of fullness.
How long does it last?
Lip blushing usually lasts between 2-3 years . A touch up is recommended annually as the colour will eventually fade back to your natural lip colour.
How long does it take to heal?
Lip Blush usually remains bright on your lips for 1 week following the procedure. Lips will be dry, can flake and peel during this healing process. Swelling usually subsides within 48 hours. You can also have slight bruising this will go away within the first 1 hour after treatment. We recommend being diligent with aftercare to help nourish and repair your lips (aftercare instructions are provided after Lip blushing treatment).
Are there any contraindications?
Lip blushing is performed with a machine which has a very fine needle that imbeds the colour using a special pixelating technique. As any cosmetic procedure is damaging to the skin and because we are irritating the lip tissue, you may suffer a cold sore outbreak. If you are a cold sore sufferer there is a very high chance that you will have a breakout following the procedure. Its highly recommended speaking with your doctor to gain advice of prescription preventatives 1-2 weeks prior to your appointment.
Whilst every precaution is taken, the most advanced technician cannot prevent a cold sore outbreak. Other contraindications included are if you are prone to keloid scarring, hyperpigmentation, suffer from skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, diabetes, pregnant or breast feeding, on blood thinners, taking Accutane or steroids or suffer from any healing conditions.
Can I over-line the lips?
Unfortunately, lip blushing should only be performed in the natural line of the lips. Your lip and skin have different textures therefore your finish will have an obvious uneven healing of pigment.
Does it hurt?
There is some discomfort however it is very tolerable. We will insure to keep you comfortable throughout the whole service.
How do we find a colour that suits me?
There are many pigments to choose from, We recommend bringing your favourite lipstick or providing photos of what you are after.
We will show you options that will best suit your skin tone prior to the service, ensuring you are happy with the colour and understand what you can expect for your final result.
What factors will affect the result of my lip tattoo?
The amount of pigment retention may reduce when there is an excessive bleeding during the procedure. Certain food or drink, such as alcohol and caffeine, certain vitamins or medications may act as stimulants. Thus, you should avoid them at least 48 hours before your appointment. In addition, sun exposure must be avoided 30 days before and after the procedure. This is because the sun may change the colour appearance of the pigment and extremely soften the look of your lip blushing.
