Maximized lips are the most important point of sexual attractiveness in women. Full lips in scarlet color are believed to have an implication on women’s luck with money and of course for fascinating the opposite sex.
Semi-permanent cosmetic technique is applied on to the lips by using natural pigments in order to brighten, highlight, define shape, and brings more emphasis to it. This is also known as “ Nano Crystal Lip Lining, Brightening, and Coloring.”
- True color will be visible in 3 months
- For color correction, you will be asked to come back after a month to see how the correction procedure have taken place and a retouch will be done in conjunction with your visit.
Who needs it?
- Anyone who looks unattractive as the color of the top and bottom lips is different from one another
- Anyone whose lip color flows and line is unclear
- Anyone whose lips had turned dark due to smoking and other related factors or as a hereditary feature
- Anyone whose upper and lower lips are obviously asymmetrical and wanted to make corrections thru the procedure
- No eating of hot and spicy food on the day of the procedure
- You should not eat for 3 hours after the procedure
- Use straw in drinking liquid beverages for 24 hours after the procedure
- If you get cold sores you will need an antiviral prescription. Physician usually instructs to begin taking it 3 days before procedure, for a 7-10 day course. (Acyclovir 2 tabs 2x a day for 3-5 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.
- Oral prosthesis dentures/ partials/ braces and tongue piercing bars may increase risk of getting bacterial and/or fungal infection from the mouth to the lips.
- Lips will ooze a couple of days. Blot and reapply ointment. After sleeping, crust will have dried on the lips. Rinse with water or put more ointment on to loosen crust, blot and reapply ointment. Most tissues like the ones you blow your nose with will leave lint on the lips. Use something stronger and lint-free like Bounty hand towels. A soaking wet cloth feels good to blot with.
- Lips will be tender at first. Drink through a straw. Choose foods you can place in your mouth with a fork without touching lips.
- Place an old but clean towel on the pillow you will sleep on until the oozing stops so you won’t ruin good pillowcases or pillows and won’t acquire infection.
- Do not excessively stretch lips while they are healing with big smiles, or pucker lips with smoking. Those motions push and pull against the lip edges, applying tension and friction between the strong normal skin surrounding the mouth and the broken inflamed lip edges. Lip skin is a continuation of the delicate mucous membrane in the mouth. It is not strong like normal skin.
- On the third day, lips stop oozing and start peeling. This is when the chapped lip feeling is strongest. You may relieve the chapped lip feeling by lightly massaging the lips after placing a thick layer of ointment on them and making gentle circular motions with one finger. The light, wet massage helps get loose skin off that is ready to come off without yanking out skin that is not ready to come off. The massage relieves the chapped feeling for several hours, then it returns, and you can massage again.
- Lips will peel for a week. Other than the massage mentioned above, allow it to flake off on its own. Picking and pulling off skin that is not ready to come off will cause pigment loss and can pull out deeper tissue. The edges or lip liner will be the last to fall off. Pulling this off will result in an uneven splotchy line or an indented scar (like messing with a pimple).
- Try to keep toothpaste off lips while healing.
- Do not have teeth bleached while healing.
- During the peeling process it may look like there is not much color there. Color is more apparent by the second week. Final result is not judged for 2 months.
- It is normal to have discomfort or a feeling of pressure the day of the lip procedure. The next day should be minimal. If you begin having pain on the 3rd or 4th day after being pain-free, it is a signal that something is wrong. It is usually one of three things: 1) Infection, 2) Cold sore, or 3) Allergic contact dermatitis from antibiotic ointment. Switch ointments to rule out that as the cause.
- After the lips are healed over and all is well, they still feel more chapped than normal. The chapped feeling subsides over a period of weeks to months. Certain lip balms create the problem. Do not use anything made for cold sores or blisters (carmex, blistex) because although they initially feel moisturizing, they turn around and dry the lips out. Some do more damage than that, especially if applied on broken lip tissue during the healing process. Applying vitamin E will usually help.
