Your Permanent Lip Blush Healing Process

While it’s normal to have some initial swelling after having your lip blush, as long as you are in normal health and, have chosen the right artist for you, you should be pleasantly surprised at how easily and quickly your lips safely heal. Proper aftercare will affect how long your permanent lip colour lasts. We’re going to take a look at how your permanent lipstick will look as it’s healing.

How Your Lip Colour Will Heal

Days 1-2: Wow! It’s a bit bright!

Your lip colour will appear brighter than it will when healed. It can fade up to 70% over the coming weeks. Your lips will also look swollen and feel slightly tender but this will have settled over the next 1-2 days. An ice pack helps and using straws to drink. Your color will begin to darken temporarily throughout the day as the pigment oxidizes.

Days 3 -40: Healing continues.

Your lips will feel dry and start the flaking process. Allow shedding to happen naturally. As your lips flake, it will appear that your lip colour is very light and “frosty”. This is only temporary as you are still healing. Over the next several days your lip color will reappear until it fully heals.

Six week touch up. It’s time for Stage 2 of the procedure.

By this time your lips are fully healed and you will need to come back for your touch up and any patches that might have healed too light are fixed. Applying a second layer of colour will build it up and it should last 18 months to 3 years (sometimes longer). You can also choose another colour if you feel they are too orange or pink or you would like them darker.

Having had mine done for many years, I couldn’t imagine not having lip blush now. It really lifts the face and it’s just wonderful to not have to think about applying lipstick/gloss during the day and to wake up with lovely tinted lips each morning.
