Do you want to have a more youthful appearance, with bigger looking, more defined natural lips? If you answered yes then you are a perfect candidate! This includes those busy parents or business people who don’t have much time to apply make up, active people who don’t want to worry about wearing makeup, any person who has lips that look the same color as their skin, or those who have white spots on their lips.
If you are currently pregnant or nursing, have a history of keloid scarring, have you used Accutane within the last year, and if you have a previous lip tattoo then unfortunately, you are not a good candidate.
A tiny pen-like machine is used to gently deposit pigment into the lips, slowly building a beautifully natural lip color. This allows us to build the color gradually so that we have full control over the boldness of the lip color. Color and boldness is based on individual preference.
We strive to offer services that are luxurious and natural-looking. Lip Blush is a natural lip enhancement that defines the lips and corrects any imperfections while maintaining your naturally beautiful size and shape. We do not carry bold lip colors like red or purple, and we do not offer bold techniques or solely lip liner.
The retention rate of Lip Blush is dependent on different factors such as the color you choose, your lifestyle, and how you care for them before and after your appointment. On average, Lip Blush fades away within 2-3 years, with most people wanting a touch up every 12-18 months, depending on how bold you want your lips to look.
Most people describe it as a mild discomfort, and we numb! It is a tattoo, so you will feel some discomfort, but it’s very manageable.
The first appointment takes 2-3 hours, and the touch up takes about 1.5-2 hours. Most of this time is spent mapping and numbing in order to create the perfect lip.
Some swelling and tenderness after the procedure is normal and may last a day or so. Your lips may look like you got lip filler, however this is normal and typically tapers off within the first 24 hours. Also, your lips will appear darker and bigger for a couple of days. Lips are super easy to heal as our technique is gentle. It only takes about 4-5 days, on average, to heal and during that time they may feel tight and chapped.
It usually takes at least 2 sessions or more to complete your desired lip colour. The first initial appointment is neutralize your lip color. After 6 weeks you need to come back for touch up. The body usually absorb the pigment unevenly. It is like applying your nail colour. It needs at least 2-3 coats to achieve a solid colour.

Lip blushing is a great alternative to fillers or surgery. It can also be done in conjunction with these procedures! Many of our clients do both to maximize the effectiveness of lip enhancement treatments.

You must be 18 years or older to receive Permanent Makeup at TLC
As a precaution, TLC does NOT perform cosmetic tattooing on pregnant or nursing women.

Of all permanent makeup procedures, the permanent lip enhancement procedure is the most sensitive. However we do numb your lips prior to and throughout the procedure with a highly effective topical anesthetic for your comfort.

Pre-Care Instructions are designed and MUST BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service. Excessing bleeding and sensitivity during the procedure will dilute and expel the pigment color and lead to poor results.

* Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.

* If you are a frequent smoker or “sun worshipper” the topical anesthetics used during the treatment may not last as long and also can lead to poor retention and poor lasting results.

You and your artist will discuss which colors suit you based on your natural lip color. Once your lips have healed, you may still enhance or change the color of your lips at anytime with conventional makeup. Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a base, so it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all.
Your lips will look swollen and slightly larger than normal and look as though you may have had a slight lip filler injection. The degree of this varies from person to person. The pigment and lip color will look darker initially, like a bold lipstick. The size of your lips will shrink back to normal and the color will significantly fade up to 50% within the first 4 days. You will lose color on the inside of your lips first, the edges last. Right after the procedure lips normally feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. Similar to how a sunburn feels.
Expect moderate swelling up to three days following the procedure. Scabbing may make the lips feel thick. Lip pigment color may fade up to 50% after the first few days. While healing you lip color will look spotty. This is due to oxidation of the pigment and the regeneration of the skin. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired lip results. Your Complimentary Enhancement Session must be scheduled 6-12 weeks after your first initial appointment and is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color, achieve symmetry, and density in the shape.
Lip Blushing is a form of permanent cosmetic tattooing. The pigment will remain in your skin forever, but will fade over time. We recommend getting a touch up every 1-3 years.
