If you are active on social media, you would have realized that aesthetically, it is all about lips these days. In the past, lip fillers were an undiscussed topic. However, now people in Dubai or other regions of the world have become candid about them. They discuss their injectors openly. In short words, fillers provided unbeatable lip services for the non-invasive cosmetic industry.
From receiving lip filler in Dubai to adding filler under the bottom lip to make your lips look more pronounced and plumper, there are many alternatives that can increase your lip aesthetics. It also includes tattooing. It is not a novel cosmetic procedure, as permanent makeup has been around for years.
So, let’s meet lip blushing! It will prove fruitful to learn about the tattoo that not only corrects the color but also enhances the size and shapes of your lips:
What is Lip Blushing?
Lip blushing is the new semi permanent makeup procedure on lips. Compared to semi permanent makeup services such as brow microblading and tattooed eyeliner, lip blushing makes you wake up with picturesque, beautifully flushed lips without applying a little amount of lip balm, lipstick or gloss.
The surgeon deposits colored ink on lips through a mechanical needle. Thanks to the advancements in semipermanent procedures, the resulting lips are subtle but not saturated. Unlike lip fillers that make lip plump, lip blushing creates an illusion of fuller lips by adding more definition to them. Therefore, despite being an expensive treatment, people praise it to the skies due to its natural-looking results and time-saving benefit.
How Does The Process Work?
It is nothing like traditional permanent makeup treatments that use synthetic pigments, strong machines, and stresses being embedded deep in the dermis. This treatment uses more organic pigments and modern and digitized tools.
So what happens after booking the appointment? First, the process includes pout preparation. You and the cosmetic surgeon will work together to customize and finalize the perfect lip shade. Consider soft pinks, mauves, neutrals, and corals.
If you have a medium or dark complexion with cool undertones, your artist may first apply a “vibrant orange pigment” to neutralize your natural lip color and let you achieve the color of your dreams. If you want bold shades, you need to manage your expectations because lip blush will not mimic the shade of your favorite dark lipstick.
Once you decide upon the color tint, the doctor applies the topical anesthetic to pre-numb the area for 20 minutes. Then, he or she draws the new shape of lips so the client can evaluate and request to make necessary changes.
Next, the doctor deposits the pigment on the lips with a mechanical needle. The process almost takes about an hour and a half, building layers of color to even the lip tone. Your lips will appear significantly darker immediately following your session than they will in their recovered state. However, the healed color will be around 30 to 50% lighter than the original findings within a few days.
What is the Aftercare Process?
The healing process for lip blushing treatment extends from five to ten days. Within 24 hours of receiving the treatment, you can apply an ice pack wrapped in clean towels to reduce the swelling tenderness.
It is crucial to keep the lip area protected from irritants and infections. Therefore, experts would recommend you avoid activities that involve sun exposure, makeup, spicy foods and sweating to maintain an adequate lip protection barrier as they heal.
Also, expect your peel to fall off naturally. It is best to resist the urge to prick or scrub at flaky spots as it can lead to scarring and poor results. It includes premature pigment loss and patchiness.
How Permanent is Lip Blushing?
Lip blushing typically lasts two to three years. It progressively lightens and fades over time until your lips gradually revert to their original shade. Your lifestyle influences how well it lasts. For instance, smoking and sun exposure can hasten the fading process. Also, if you have oil-prone skin, have an iron deficiency, or use a bunch of exfoliating items in your skincare routine, the pigment may fade faster as well.
The Final Takeaway
A tattoo on the lips seems uncomfortable and painful, especially for someone searching for an alternative to filler injections. However, lip blushing followed by a Hydrafacial will give you a natural and more radiant look. It will restore the skin and lip tone and make you look fresh and younger!
