You may have heard of lip blushing, but what is lip blushing? Lip blushing is a semi-permanent tattooing method designed to enhance the natural color and shape of your lips. Using a method called pixelating, the aesthetician deposits small, undetectable dots of pigment to line and shade. The result is a color that looks as if it could be your own—but with a boost (and a more pronounced shape).
Lip Blushing Procedure
First, your aesthetician will numb your lips so that you’ll feel less pain and discomfort.
While you’re waiting for the numbing agent to take full effect, your aesthetician will go over your desired lip shape and tone. Next, they’ll insert a natural-looking pigment into your lips using small needles. This is done in multiple layers to help create an even tone. In all, the process can take between 1-2 hours.
Lip blushing carries the same side effects and risks as traditional tattooing. Minor side effects are to be expected, though they’ll decrease as your lips heal. These include:
When used in conjunction with lip filler our clients achieve amazing results. Below is an example of a client’s lips, the first picture is before filler or lip blushing, the second picture is after filler, and the last picture is after lip blushing.
How Long Does It Last?
Lip blushing is considered a semi-permanent procedure. This means you’ll need to repeat the process every few years to maintain your results depending on your individual circumstances. Frequent lip exfoliation, sun exposure, and smoking can all make the pigment fade more quickly.
