Although it is normal to experience some swelling following a lip color tattoo, as long you are healthy and have chosen a skilled artist, you will be pleased with how quickly and easily your lips safely heal. Your permanent lipstick’s longevity will depend on how well you take care of it. Let’s take a look at the appearance of your permanent lipstick after it heals. We also discuss two popular methods for lip blushing.
How Your Lip Color Can Help You Heal
Days 1 & 2: You love your new lipstick!
The lip color will look brighter than normal. You will feel tender and swollen on your lips. As the pigment oxidizes, your color may temporarily darken.
Days 3-14: The swelling will be over.
The flaking process will begin and your lips will feel dry. Let the natural process of shedding take place. It will appear as though your lips are becoming brittle and pale. It is temporary and you are still healing. Your lip color will gradually return over the next few days until it blooms fully.
Days 28-42: It’s time to do your follow-up
Your lips should be fully healed by this point. It is recommended that you return to touch up any imperfections or excess color. The second layer of color will be added to your existing color. This will make the lips more saturated and last longer. You can also adjust the shape of your lips during this appointment if you wish.
What You Will Need for Your Aftercare
Wet healing is the best way to get your best permanent lip blushing results. These are the best aftercare products you will need.
After the procedure, you’ll be able to clean your lips with cotton pads and water every 15 minutes.
