Lip-Blushing Specifics & What to Expect

During the lip-blushing process we use only the best highest quality, lip-blushing tools to outline and fill in the lips giving them a fuller, more youthful appearance. All of our tools are sterilized using EO Gas (sometimes referred to as EtO). We also use only the very best Pigments for even color application and to ensure that the color fades true to tone. The best products for the best results!


Lip-blushing is an extremely meticulous process that takes an hour and a half to two hours to complete. Since results last up to 24 months (lips may be significantly faded at this point), it's good to know that our PMU artists pay so much attention to detail. 

We provide clients with a topical numbing cream which is to be applied 30 minutes prior to your appointment in order to minimize discomfort. If you're worried that the process is painful, Holly assures, "Some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it's relatively painless."


For the first part of the lip-blushing procedure, we are drawing the shape in with lip pencil. During this time, the best customized shape for every client is chosen. To enable women to preview what the finished outcome would look like, Tina Davies created 12 concentrated lip blush products that are matched to each of the lip pigment colors we use. Our clients will preview their lip color with our matching lip gloss prior to the start of the procedure to ensure that the perfect color is selected for each client.

Your procedure includes your first appointment & the “perfecting” appointment. We include one mandatory, perfecting touch-up as part of the initial process which is included in the purchase price. This touch-up is done a five-six weeks after your first appointment. This touch up is scheduled the way that it is because the healing process is different for everyone, and it takes about 40-45 days to allow your pigment color to settle in and your skin to fully heal before we will do your touch-up. Your lips are not considered completed until your touch-up has been done and allowed to heal. 

Pre Appointment:

  • If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing can cause outbreaks. We ask that our clients take their prescribed anti-viral medication a few days prior to their appointment and after the procedure to prevent that. Consult with your doctor for best. 

  • If you have an outbreak, or any other type of scratch/acne we ask that you reschedule your appointment as soon as possible.

  • No alcohol or caffeinated product’s 24 hours before treatment and no aspirin or blood-thinning medication’s five (5) days prior.

  • Absolutely no injections of Novocaine should be administered to you ten (10) days before treatment. 

  • All makeup should be removed and the skin thoroughly cleansed. I prefer you do this before your arrival.

  • For optimal results, the skin to be treated should not be irritated.

Post Appointment:

  • There will be moderate swelling, redness and bruising for the first 5 days.

  • You may apply a Ziploc bag filled with water and ice for no more than 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling. 

  • Color may be quite dark and uneven during the first week with some scabbing and flaking around day four. Lips may lose 50% - 60% of their intensity as they heal, don't panic, the color will return, but will be much more subtle than week one with true depth of color revealed.

  • If you think the color is too dark during the healing process, do not try to remove it yourself by any means. Patiently wait the two weeks for the color to balance out on its own as the skin fully heals. If after healing you feel the color is too light, we can always go bolder at your perfecting appointment. We would rather have them heal too light and then go darker during your perfecting appointment as it is much easier to add color depth than to go lighter after pigment has been deposited into the skin.


And remember, your lips are NOT considered completed until your perfecting touch-up has been completed and allowed to heal!
