Here is everything you need to know before booking your appointment.  We answer some questions about Microblading in general.  Have a question not answered here?  Please feel free to call or send us and E-Mail.

What is Lip Blush?

Lip blushing is a semi-permanent tattoo that can enhance the color and shape of your lips and give the impression of more youthful and fullness. This is done by depositing color ink into your lips and along your lip line to improvr the overall look. The color is subtle to give natural-looking results.

How long does Lip Blush last?

Lip Blush treatment is considered semi-permanent, will fade over time and will need a touch-up every 2-3 years to maintain the color. Results will vary from client to client. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: skin type, pigment color used, and sun exposure.

How long does Lip BLush take to heal?

Usually 5-7 days it will superficially heal. The color of the pigment will gradually soften to about 50-70% after the first treatment depending on how well your skin retained the pigment. To fully heal it takes anywhere from 3-5 weeks. We recommend after 30 days to come in for a touch up. In this appointment, Msrisa will “warm up” or “cool down” the colors, to get the desired color.

How long is the Lip Blush appointment?

Within 4 hours you will have a beautiful lips transformation. During your appointment, Marisa will consult with you the entire time ensuring you are on the same page. Much of the time is spent measuring and drawing on a symmetrical of the lips, correct the shape and to create the perfect signature lip shape.

What are cold sores and can they effect healed results?

Lips are especially sensitive. The skin of the lip is very thin compared to the typical facial skin. Blood vessels appear through the skin of the lips which leads to their notable red coloring. Since lips are very vascular and because of a high number of nerve endings any trauma around the mouth area may cause an occurrence of cold sores. Cold sores are caused by Herpes Simplex Virus HSV type 1. Treatment can help but this condition can’t be cured completely. Over 90% of people get at least one cold sore in their life. Cold sores are also called fever blisters, that can show on every part of the body, mostly on lips. When you experience blisters they break and ooze, building yellow scab and eventually they fall off. If your body doesn’t develop antibodies, you might get blisters frequently throughout your life. Cold sores mostly spread from person to person through the exchange of bodily fluids; from mother to child during birth, saliva (mouth-to-mouth kissing or sharing drinks) or unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex.

How Can Lip Blush Affect Herpes?

People sometimes use PMU treatments to cover scars and improve scar tissue texture, including from the effects of previous herpes breakout. Working on scar tissue requires a high skill level and the proper pigment color. I prefer working with gentle movements at a 45° angle and light-value pigments. Note that stress, fever, infection, allergies, sunburns and, yes, a PMU treatment can induce a breakout. Therefore, we suggest that PMU clients with a history of cold sore breakouts consult with their physician if they’d like to take preventive measures. Doctors can prescribe an antiviral treatment to start 2-3 days before the PMU procedure using drugs such as: Valtrex, Valacyclovir, Acyclovir, Famvir and Famciclovir. Clients who have never had sores can take an over-the-counter L-lysine supplement. We also suggest, pending doctor approval, clients continue taking the medication or supplements for up to 6 days after the PMU procedure.
