A Quick Sneak-Peek at the Lip Blushing Procedure

It’s worth understanding that a lip blush tattoo can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the lips' current condition and the expected results. Before you begin with the procedure, your service provider will thoroughly go through the results you want to achieve.

The procedure usually starts by inserting a numbing agent into the lips to numb them. Since it can get a bit painful while inserting the natural pigment into the lips, the numbing agent is used to balance the situation.

This is followed by the insertion of natural pigment using needles. These pigments are inserted in layers so that you can attain the beautiful lip color and more enhanced lip shape.

How to Prepare for Your Lip-Blushing Procedure

Now, after scheduling your lip-blushing appointment, the next step would be to follow a few practices to ensure you achieve the best results. When it comes to cosmetic procedures like lip blushing, hydration is the key.

Start by applying a lip scrub and moisturising balm on your lips at least a week before the scheduled appointment. This will give you plenty of time to ensure your lips are fully moisturised for the procedure.

Moreover, moisturised lips will also cater to the healing process and help you heal more effectively. In addition to this simple routine, it’s also advised to avoid consuming alcohol at least 24 hours before the appointment.
