Your lip blush post-care can greatly influence the appearance and longevity of your newly tattooed lips.
In this blog, we will discuss permanent lip blush aftercare for all those who have undergone this lip treatment very recently.
Day 1, 2, and 3:
Right after the procedure of permanent lip blush, your lips will feel excessively dry, chapped, and sensitive to the touch. They may also appear more voluminous and brighter in color. It is because of swelling and freshly planted pigments.
Use ice for ten minutes a few times a day for the first few days. Apply an ointment two to three times as recommended by the professional, such as Shea butter, Burts bees wax to keep your lips moisturized all the time.
Avoid any kissing, rubbing, or friction on your lips. While applying ointment, don’t rub onto the lips. Apply it using a clean Q-tip.
Don’t eat any spicy, salty, oily, or heavily seasoned food and drink with a straw. Also, avoid alcohol. After having a meal, gently rinse and clean lips with water, pat dry and then, re-apply the ointment.
Prefer sleeping on your old pillows for several days because some residual pigment might come off the lips and can cause staining. It is highly recommended to brush your teeth with only water during the first three days.
Day 4, 5, 6, and 7:
In this duration, your lips will go through the phase of peeling. Thus, the color will be faded by 30 to 50 percent depending on how your lip skin reacts to pigments. Don’t pick or scratch your lips to remove peeling forcibly. Let them peel away naturally. Continue to moisturize your lips.
By now, your lips have completed the peeling process, and the color has become light in color. Now, you may return to normal routines. However, still, don’t let your lips face friction. Your lips will keep healing for up to 6 weeks. Every week, more color will surface. However, to get the best results, keep your lips moist till the end of the healing phase. Avoid direct water pressure, pools, and other water bodies until your lips are fully healed.
Up to fourteen days after the treatment, you must avoid excess sweating, practicing sports, hot bath, sun/salon tanning, sun exposure, laser or chemical treatment, any cream containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid, heavy household chores, working in a dusty area, and driving in open vehicles.
Sixth to Eighth Week:
Now, your lips will become healed, and you will see the exact result of your lip blush procedure. Just use some lip gloss and you are ready to go. If your lips are still dry, keep moisturizing them.
Usually, it requires two sessions to complete the lip transformation and get excellent results. Be sure to use sun block on your lips after healing. You can start wearing lipsticks after this time and make sure that you use new lipsticks.
Just follow the above instructions, and you will be happy to see how beautifully your lips are transformed. If you notice any symptoms or issues after the procedure, please consult with your artist and physician.
