How long do lip tattoos last?

“Depending on the depth of colour and the amount of pigment used, it can generally last 2 to 3 years without requiring any retouching.

What affects how long it lasts?

“The colour retention will depend on exposure to the elements, lifestyle, skin care, etc. Usually

oily skin clients will require more regular visits to refresh the vibrancy of the pigment.”

Procedure:

Your treatment will begin with a consultation in our clinic discussing the shape and the colour of your preference to ensure a first class result! Like all of our procedures, everything is discussed and pencilled in prior to starting to ensure that you have total control with the style, colour and shape of your lip enhancement. You have the option of whether you want a natural or dramatic result and pigments are custom blended to meet your requests. Once the process has been explained and you have agreed to the design, we will start the procedure.

Our numbing process is as good as it gets and we only use top of the line topical anaesthetics to maximise your comfort.  The semi-permanent makeup lips process starts once the treated area is numb. The process itself can take 45 minutes to one-and-a-half hours. You feel pressure on the lips and buzzing from the machine, but some clients have been known to fall asleep! Once the anaesthetic wears off you will not be in pain. You will feel as though the lips are very stimulated.”

Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:

Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. 

If you’re prone to cold sores, you should take anti-viral medication 3 days before the procedure, for a 7-10 day course

The stimulation of the needles may potentially cause cold sores to appear, which can negatively impact the healing process.

Aftercare:

  • The pigmented area should be treated in a particularly delicate way. It is not allowed to soak, rub or touch the pigmented skin. Under no circumstances can the pigmented skin be washed with soap or treated with any cosmetics. You should not use the sauna, solarium, SPA treatments, or go to the swimming pool

  • Apply a healing balm regularly as instruction for at least 7 days

  • * If you have had any type of lip surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent makeup procedure on the lips. Most physicians are giving a 3 week ok after lip filler injections like collagen or Restylane. Permanent makeup artists have noticed poor color retention in lips that have received collagen injections within the previous 6 months, longer for restylane. There has even been a little pigment migration along lip edges with Restylane. It may be best not to have lip filler injections and permanent lip color within the same year. If the lip surgery involves an incision (like a lip implant), the incision needs to mature about 6 months before tattooing on top of it.
    The approximate healing period is 14 days, however it vary based on lifestyle, skin type, health, preferences, etc.

  •  In many cases, some unevenness of colour is to be expected. This is the purpose of the free touch up session allowing us to fine tune your enhancement

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours

  • Lips area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over

  • Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation

  • Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days
