If you want to keep your new lips looking great, here is where you’ll find a few guidelines to follow before and after your lip blushing sessions.
LIP BLUSH PRE CARE
Refrain from all activities that may cause irritation of the skin or thinning of the blood prior to your appointment:
- 24 hours before receiving Lip Blush No alcohol consumption.
- 24 hours before receiving lip blush No coffee and energy drink.
- 7-10 days Refrain from suntanning, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, laser treatment, and chemical peels before receiving Lip Blush.
- Refrain from all medications that cause thinning of the blood including but not limited to: Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Niacin, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, and
- Ibuprofen. Please consult your physician before stopping any medication.
- 3-7 days before receiving lip blush you must moisturize your lips as much as possible (we recommend using Aquaphor multiple times per day).
Cold sores are a risk of lip blush tattoo only if you have had them in the past. If you have had a cold sore in the past, we advise you to go to the doctor for an anti-viral medication ( MUST take VALTREX for 2-4 days) prior to any lip procedure as a preventative. Even if you have not had a cold sore before, we recommend all of my clients take L-lysine 1000 mg 7 days prior to your appointment to reduce the risk.
Failure to follow these instructions can risk an outbreak that can affect the healing process.
If you are experiencing any blemishes, acne, or skin irritations leading up to your procedure please contact Joblushh Studio.
If you do it regularly, Lip fillers must be done 4weeks prior to scheduling this service. Failure to disclose this information may result in a negative outcome.
LIP BLUSH AFTER CARE
Your lips will feel swollen and dry after your treatment. Apply Aquaphor on lips several times a day. This should be done for at least 14 days post treatment. Do not allow lips to become dry. This may interfere with healed color. Just pat the ointment on the lip and do not rub in.
Always use a wet gauze to clean /sanitized fingers or Q-tip to apply ointment to the lips area. This will reduce the risk of infection.
After your lips are no longer tender to the touch they may become flaky. This is normal and is expected. Please do not pick or scratch at them as this may significantly reduce the amount pigment absorption. Avoid sun and tanning beds pre and post procedure. Always be sure to use a sunblock once lips are healed to preserve the color. Do not use any Glycolic, Hydroxy or fruit acid products on lips. Avoid direct water pressure, pools and other bodies of water, until healed. You can resume wearing lipstick once your lips are healed. Redness, swelling, tenderness, dryness are all common post treatment side effects and will dissipate in a short period of time. Avoid oily, salty, acidic foods and alcohol while healing.
Your lips may require one touch-up session (not included) to complete the process of this procedure. Lip tissue can be unpredictable. Some clients will yield very strong healed lip color while others will only heal with slight color uptake. This will vary on an individual basis. Clients with sun damage, scar tissue (from injury or fever blisters) and clients with implants may not have strong results. Hyperpigmentation can happen on any lip client without warning.
Your lips will heal in three stages:
Too dark – To light – Just right.
This takes one month to occur from start to finish.
