PRE CARE FOR LIPS
***** All lip tattoo clients must contact a doctor for a prescription of an antiviral medication (Valtrex) to prevent a herpes outbreak. Start taking medication 2 days prior and continue for 3 days post procedure.
Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
POST CARE FOR LIPS
Lipstick is worn topically on the skin. Lip permanent makeup are implanted/viewed under the skin. During the healing the lip pigments used will revert back to their original state, which is a powder. Lip tattooing does not replace makeup. In fact it is advised to wear some type of lip-gloss to enrich the color tattooed. Lips will vary in color on a daily basis and change color during the day. This depends on if we are hot or cold. Even if we are well hydrated or not.
** Right after the procedure lips normally feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. Lips will feel better with each day. Should anything occur that has not been addressed, please call immediately.**
**Expect moderate swelling, usually one to three days following the procedure. Scabs will make the lips feel thick. Lips will fade up to 50% after the first 5 days. While healing, the tattoo will look spotty. This is due to oxidation of the pigment and the redness of the skin. Two or three permanent makeup applications may be required to achieve the desired results.
The following Pre and Post-Care for lips will affect how quickly or slowly you heal. Mature age, poor diet, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, age, general health, sleep/fatigue. The more fatigued you are the lower your immune system is and infection is more likely to occur. Please get plenty of rest and drink lots of water to hydrate prior to procedure.
**Please be patient. Cosmetic tattooing is a multiple-step appointment process with a healing time of approximately 6 weeks in between touch up appointments.
TANNING WILL LIGHTEN ANY PIGMENTED AREA OVER TIME, SO USE A SUNBLOCK 30+ WHEN TANNING. It is best to fully cover your cosmetic tattoo with a hat once you have healed to avoid premature fading. FAILURE TO FOLLOW PRE OR POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS MAY CAUSE LOSS OF PIGMENT, DISCOLORATION OR INFECTION.
