Is Healing From Lip Blushing Treatment Difficult?

By Sep 15, 2022

More than session, people are concerned about the lip blushing healing process. The session only takes 45 to 60 minutes. But, the healing process takes a week or more. So, people think this is the challenging part. But, the fact is lip blushing healing is straightforward. You just have to follow the aftercare instructions given by the artist strictly. Any carelessness during the recovery period will be harmful to you and impact the result of the session.

Stages of lip blushing healing process

For the first 24 hours, your lips will be fairly swollen, normally the swelling levels range from mild to moderate. This is why a patch test is done at least 24 hours before the appointment to ensure you aren’t allergic to the ink.

After 2-3 days, the swelling will reduce but the lip blush hue will get a bit darker than it was right after the procedure.

After 3-4 days, your lips will start to flake and scabs will begin to form to recover from the needle-induced wounds. This stage is very similar to that of a traditional tattoo. You shouldn’t peel off the scabs, no matter how tempting it is. This flaking or peeling stage lasts up to a week.

After 5-6 days, the flakiness will start to subside and the color of your lips will get 30 to 50% lighter than they were during and immediately after the session. The pigment might disappear but you shouldn’t worry as it will return a couple of weeks later.

This is what the healing process of the lip blushing session looks like. If you are worried about swelling, you shouldn’t because it’s very common after any cosmetic session. During the session, the tiny wounds provoke your body’s inflammatory response. And thus, your lips begin to produce lymphatic fluid immediately after the session, causing swelling.

What are your responsibilities during the lip blushing healing period? 

If you are very much concerned about lip blushing healing, you should follow a few dos and don’ts. These things will surely make the process easy for you.

Things to do:

You should use ice packs to reduce swelling. This will eliminate your discomfort as well as work faster on the swelling. Other than this, you should keep your lips using SPF lip balms. This will reduce dryness and flakiness. Most importantly, you will not be tempted to remove scabs. You need to understand that picking scabs will reopen wounds and make you more susceptible to infections. Most importantly, you should be consistent with your washing and lip hygiene routine.

Things not to do:

You should refrain from activities or using products that could irritate your lips. It’s because lip blushing leaves open wounds that are vulnerable to infection. You should avoid sun exposure, intense exercise, swimming, saunas, and any sweat-inducing practice. Other than this, you should skip spicy food, soups, and hot beverages for at least 48 hours after the session. Also, you should prevent eating acidic, oily, or salty food items and drinking alcohol. Lip makeup should also be avoided.

Lip blushing healing is not as challenging as it seems. Or you can say it’s nothing compared to other facial sessions. You just need to understand the stages and follow the aftercare instructions given by your artist.

I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am to have found Neena to do the microblading and shading on my eyebrows. Since I was about 13 years old, I would draw my eyebrows on with makeup since my eyebows were scarce and super blonde. Neena changed all of that today. 12 years later I FINALLY have the eyebrows I’ve always wanted and it’s all thanks to Neena!! She was very detail oriented and made sure I was 100% happy with the result before leaving. Not to mention, she treats you like a friend, not a customer. I highly recommend Strokes of Genius Microblading.
