Lip Blushing on Dark Lips

Getting your lips ready for neutralisation

Your lips preparation for the tattooing is an important step to ensure the best possible outcome.

Exfoliation and Moisturization: Before the treatment, gently exfoliate your lips to remove any dry or flaky skin. This can be done using a soft toothbrush or a gentle lip scrub. After exfoliation, make sure to moisturize your lips with a hydrating lip balm.

Cold Sores: While lip cosmetic tattooing itself does not cause cold sores.  If you are prone to cold sores it’s advisable to consult with your healthcare provider for appropriate medication to prevent an outbreak.

Waxing and Bleaching: It is recommended to avoid waxing or bleaching treatments on or around the lips at least two weeks prior to your cosmetic tattooing procedure.

Dermal Fillers: If you have had dermal fillers in your lips, it’s generally advised to wait at least four weeks before undergoing a permanent makeup procedure.

Dark Lip Neutralisation Aftercare

During the healing process, fluid may leak from the tattooed area and form scabs. It is important to keep the area clean and prevent the formation of large, thick scabs. To do this, you can gently wipe the tattooed area with a wet cotton round every hour during the first 16 hours after the procedure. After wiping, pat the area dry to ensure that no fluids sit and form scabs. Only apply a mini minimal !!  amount of ointment as necessary.

The toothpaste and mouthwash can have a lightening effect and may potentially remove lip color. Therefore, it is advised to proceed with caution and avoid using these products directly on the tattooed area.

While showers are generally permitted during the healing process, it is important to avoid washing, scrubbing, or touching the treated area. Hot and steamy baths, on the other hand, should be completely avoided.

Always follow the aftercare instructions provided by us, as they may have specific guidelines tailored to your individual needs. Proper aftercare is crucial for optimal healing and long-lasting results. 

Dark Lip Healing Process

After the initial Dark Lip treatment it is not uncommon for the lips to appear darker or experience post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This can be due to various factors, such as the trauma caused by the tattooing process. However, as the healing progresses, the lips typically lighten up over time.

It’s also possible for some spots on the lips to lighten or darken differently than others. This can be attributed to variations in skin texture, thickness, and the way the pigments interact with the skin. The healing process is gradual, and it may take several weeks for the final results to become apparent.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation can occur as part of the healing process. Hyperpigmentation refers to areas of the lips becoming darker than the surrounding skin, while hypopigmentation refers to areas becoming lighter. In most cases, these changes are temporary and tend to fade as the skin heals and the pigments settle.

The extent of dark lip neutralization depends on the initial darkness and hyperpigmentation of the lips.  It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that the process may take time and commitment to achieve the desired outcome. Darker lips, healing takes 6-10 weeks…
