PLEASE BE READY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. We work on a strict schedule and allow 3 hours per appointment. This includes answering questions you may have regarding the procedure. It is important that you trust our artistry and work. Do not book your appointment if you are hesitant, unsure, or apprehensive about the procedure. Book when you are 100% ready for your lip enhancement. We understand everyone is a little bit nervous but this creates a safe space for both you and the artist, allowing us to do our best work!
*FAILURE TO FOLLOW PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS CAN ALTER THE OUTCOME OF YOUR HEALED RESULTS.*
AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT:
The mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria, which means there is high risk of infection when getting the lip blush procedure done. Avoid eating & drinking for at least 5 hours after your appointment. Do not drink tap water.
Antiviral medication for cold sore must be continued for 7 days post the lip treatment.
Rinse your mouth with antiseptic mouthwash at least 4 times a day until you are done healing. Be sure to rinse after eating/drinking.
Do not eat spicy, oily, acidic or greasy foods. Do not stretch lips to take large bites.
Once shedding begins, do not pick, peel or pull the skin.
Do not use saline water as it will cause ink to be pulled from the skin.
Apply ointment several times a day for 10 days to keep lips moisturized. Do not rub- dab.
Avoid getting lips wet. Apply the ointment before brushing teeth.
Do not use any soaps/chemicals on your lips. Be careful when washing your face. Use a washcloth to better control any liquid substance.
Use a minimal amount of non-whitening toothpaste. Use a straw when swishing water.
Do not expose lips to direct sunlight/tanning beds. Since this is new skin, it’s prone to sunburn, which could change the color and cause scarring.
Do not smoke or kiss for at least 10 days.
Keep your hands clean and avoid touching your lips until they are done healing.
