Permanent Lip Color is the truly smudge proof answer to all day, perfect lip color. Using a hand-held device, we are able to apply full or partial color to naturally blush the lips, making them appear more youthful. We use cosmetic pigments to correct irregularities in color and lip symmetry. We can even adjust the lip line to make your lips appear fuller if desired. Permanent Lip Color is also known as Permanent Lipstick, Permanent Lip Tattoo, Lip Blushing and Permanent Lip Tinting.
Step 1 : We Consult With You
Once you’ve booked your appointment, we’ll interview you about your daily makeup routine. What colors do you enjoy wearing? Pinks, nudes, browns, or corals? We’ll work with you to find the perfect shade that best complements your skin tone. We’ll discuss symmetry and any color correction that may be recommended also at this time.
Step 2 : We Outline Your New Lips
After we’ve gone over all of your options and chosen a color that you love, we’ll outline your lips. This is to ensure perfect symmetry, as well as a shape that complements the natural highlights and contours of your face.
Step 3 : We Numb Your Lips
Before we begin, we’ll numb your lips with a topical anesthetic. We will let this sit for 20 minutes to minimize discomfort as much as possible.
Step 4 : We Begin
We begin applying lip color once we have determined you are feeling relaxed and pain free. Lip color is applied meticulously with a sterile, medical grade applicator designed specifically for detailed cosmetic application. (All items that touch your skin are one time use only and are disposed of after the treatment.) We apply lip color to the entire lip surface. This can take 1-1.5 hours.
Step 4 : We REVEAL YOUR NEW LIP COLOR!
After your treatment is complete, we reveal your new full lip color!
You can now enjoy all day, smudge-proof lip color
A complimentary perfection visit is recommended after 30-60 days.
Days 1-2: You love your new lip color!
Your lip color will appear brighter than it will heal. Your lips will also feel swollen and tender. Your color will begin to darken temporarily throughout the day as the pigment oxidizes.
Days 3-14: Swelling will have finished.
Your lips will feel dry and start the flaking process. Allow shedding to happen naturally. As your lips flake, it will appear that your lip color is very light and "frosty". This is only temporary as you are still healing. Over the next several days your lip color will reappear until it fully blooms.
Days 28-42: It’s time for your follow up.
By this time your lips are fully healed and it’s recommended that you come back in to touch up any color that might have healed too light or at all imperfectly. Applying a second layer of new color will build off of your previous color, creating a more saturated and longer-lasting lip. During this appointment, you also have the opportunity to further adjust the shape if desired.
