Before your appointment

    • Exfoliate lips once a day for a week with sugar and honey scrub. Keep lips moisturized throughout the day as much as possible for a week.
    • No, drinking excessive alcohol, caffeine, or taking blood thinners as it can increase pain sensitivity and bleeding 24-48 hours before the procedure.
    • Stop using retinoids or vitamin a near procedure area 2 weeks prior to the procedure as it can increase skin natural exfoliation and compromise final results.
    • No filler in the procedure area two weeks before and after lip blushing.
    • Plan trips or events a minimum of 10 days after the procedure. It is highly recommended that you avoid sun and tanning exposure for 14 days before and after your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a sunburn, you will be turned away and charged.
    • If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing can cause an outbreak which can result in loss of pigment. We ask that our clients take their prescribed antiviral medication starting 48 hours prior to the appointment and after the procedure to prevent outbreak. If you don’t have an antiviral at home, we suggest that you consult with your doctor to have Valtrex prescribed to prep for a lip blushing treatment. You can still have lip blushing done, we just want to ensure that you get the best results possible. Please consult with your doctor for any additional questions. If you have an outbreak or any other types of scratch/acne on the area, we ask that you reschedule your appointment as soon as possible.


After Procedure:

  • No makeup, lotion or skin products on the lips until flaking is complete only use provided appointment or Aquaphor.
  • Once flaking is complete, use SPF lip balm to protect and lengthen the life of the lip blush.
  • During the six week healing process, it’s best to not use creams or around the lips that contain acid or ingredients that will lighten or exfoliate skin.
  • No exercise for five days to prevent excess swelling and bruising. Minimal blood flow allows the damaged capillaries to repair faster.
