Lip Blush Tattoo is Long Lasting

It is a wonderful solution for those of all ages who want freedom from makeup. It’s the allure of all cosmetic tattoo: You can have your lips, eyeliner and brows look perfect 24/7. Lip blush tattoo, like other cosmetic tattoo serves multiple purposes, beyond just easing the daily beauty regime. For those with lips that are fading, have lost their shape, are asymmetrical, have scarring, sun damage or natural mottled color pigmentation, lip blush tattoo can completely refresh your look, hide imperfections, and create an instantly more youthful look. Lip blushing effectively enhances your lip border, increasing the impact of your lips. It’s magical and safe.

How long does lip blush tattoo last?

The answer to this question, at first blush, is simple: Lip blushing lasts 2-3 years on average for most people.

Why has my lip blush faded?

There are many contributing factors to why your lip blush may have faded. These factors include lifestyle and skin type. Those who smoke, spend a lot of time in the sun, have excessively oily skin, exfoliate frequently and have an iron deficiency may experience lip blush that fades quicker than average.  Skin type can play a role as well. Those with dark purple undertones, mottled lip color and dark lips, may have slightly less longevity of color.

How often can I have lip blushing done?

The best thing about lip blushing is that it can be done relatively often. There are more reasons that fading that may compel you to refresh those lips! If your lips have faded because of lifestyle factors, like smoking or sun damage, you can have your lips refreshed as often as every 6 months. Why else would you want to have them refreshed? Fashion.  Our lifestyles change, as does the color of our hair.  You may go from blonde to red and want those lips to pop with your new hair color, or you may want a heavier lipstick look versus a sheer, natural look. Or maybe, you are just obsessed with your lips being ridiculously perfect – permanently.  It’s just about you, your desires and your lifestyle.

Lip blushing is an investment, does every refresh cost the same as my initial appointment?

That will depend on where you have your lip blushing done.  DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo has a scaled touch-up | refresh pricing menu. The less time between appointments, the lower your price.  First of all we want your lips to look fabulous for a long time, so we include a 6-12 week touchup in your initial pricing.  From there your lifestyle, skin type and dedication to fashion will determine how often you refresh.  If you want to come back within 4 months after the touchup that is included in your first appointment, we just charge $200 for a refresh. If you come in at the 6-month mark its half of the price of your initial appointment. If you come in within 2 years, your price will be reduced $200 from the current new appointment pricing for your artist.

How do you Prepare for a Lip Blush Tattoo Appointment?

Preparing for lip blush is quite simple, hydrate and exfoliate a few days prior. 24 hours prior stay away from alcohol, caffeine, and other blood thinners. This is important as they can cause excessive bleeding which can stop the pigments from setting.  You should be free of antibiotics for 4 weeks and not pregnant or breastfeeding. Fillers or Botox should both be healed at least 4 weeks prior. If you are prone to cold sores, please talk to your doctor for a prescription cold sore medication before and after the appointment.

How to Care for Your Lip Blush Tattoo?

In addition to a 5-day cleaning/hydration routine, the first 30 days can determine the long-term results:

  • No application of any lip makeup for 1 week other than the healing balm that is given to you.
  • No scratching, picking, or licking of dry skin or flakiness.
  • No super spicy foods during the first 24 hours.
  • No foreign body fluids in or around the lips for 5 days.
  • No activities that will cause extreme sweating for 5 days.
  • No swimming pools, hot tubs, or other bodies of water for 5 days.
  • No UV exposure (including tanning booths) for 5 days.
  • No laser light therapy, as it can darken/lighten or distort the pigment of the lip color.
  • No exfoliants, retinol acids, glycolic acids, and alpha hydroxy acids on the area for 30 days after the appointment (causes premature fading).
  • No massages, facials, or skin treatments for 5 days.

How can I make my lip blush last a long time?

Initially, make sure you follow the aftercare program for as long as your lip blush artist suggests.  Things that seem silly, probably aren’t. Don’t let your lips dry out during the healing process! Once your lips are healed, the first and foremost preventative you can do is keep your lips protected from the sun.  Wear an SPF lip balm whenever you are outside or in a tanning bed. If you have an iron deficiency, then discuss options to correct the deficiency with your doctor.  If you have a skin regime that includes heavy exfoliants and other treatments that may cause fading, then consider avoiding these techniques on your lips.  If you smoke, well, we will leave that up to you.
