Many women love permanent makeup because it simplifies their routine....
As we age. our facial features begin to lose color. When this begins to happen with our lips, the color starts to fade, the vermillion edges to lose definition and we start looking pale without lipstick. Permanent lip color instantly alleviates this sign of aging by providing you with fuller looking and beautifully colored lips that look very natural giving you a more youthful appearance.

Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink have their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to others compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectation and know that she / he may need more frequent adjustments that others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
To ensure your lips are long-lasting and stay beautiful, proper care & maintenance is a must
You should avoid the following for the next 7/10 days:
- Swimming pools and saunas
- Do not rub the treated area
- Sunbathing, sun-beds and heat treatments
- Steam, facials, scrubs
Please make sure to:
- Pat your lips with oil remover paper (in your aftercare kit) lips should be kept moist and coated at all times even at night.
- Change pillow case
- Come for revisit appointment if needed
We recommend keeping your lips coated and moisturized for 3- 4 weeks post procedure. Your lips may slightly scab and peel. You must let the scabbing process happen naturally.
This is very important for your retention and skin healing. Do NOT pick at the scabs, scratch your lips, peel your scabs off, or scrub the area. This can result in scarring and will affect your overall retention of the pigment.
Remember: first, you will have darker lips, then very light, & after 4/5 weeks they will get to more natural color.
