Everything you should know about lip blushing

lip blushing

It’s 2019 and people are turning away from tattooed lipliner and toward lip blushing. Lip blushing is the latest trend in the cosmetic industry. It uses a customized pigment to enhance the color of your lips, leaving you with that ‘just bitten” look. If you are someone who finds themselves constantly re-applying your favorite shade of lipstick, maybe it is time to consider this lasting, low-maintenance treatment that leaves your always looking full and vibrant!

How does lip blushing work?

The lip blush procedure starts with a topical cream that temporarily numbs your lips to reduce any discomfort. Once you’ve worked with an artist to select the perfect color to match your skin tone, we use a special pencil to shape your lips. From there, we use a handheld device with a very fine needle to apply the pigment.

Check out this brief video for an idea of how the lip blushing treatment works.

Does it hurt?

They say that beauty is pain, but not in this case. Before the treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to your lips, which reduces discomfort during the procedure. Some people report slight irritation after the lip blushing process, but this does not last long.

How long does the treatment take?

Because the mouth is such a delicate area, and the needle used is very fine, the procedure takes slightly longer than some cosmetic treatments. Generally, expect a lip blush treatment to take an hour and a half to two hours.

What are the side effects?

The side effects of a lip blush treatment are minimal. It’s common for individuals to experience swelling after the procedure. The amount of swelling depends on the sensitivity of your lips, but it will go away completely in the first week. Right after the treatment, your lips will look very full and vibrant for the proceeding two to three days. By day five, your lips will have faded to the permanent color.

How many treatments do I need?

Only one treatment is required for lasting results. Some people will return to touch up or change their color.

How long do the results last?

Results typically last two to five years. Imagine – not buying lipstick for two years!
