What exactly is lip blushing?
Lip blushing is a semi-permanent tattoo that can improve the colour and contour of your lips while giving greater fullness. First, colour ink is deposited into your lips and along your lip line to boost the overall appearance. Then, the colour is subtly applied to produce natural-looking results.
What is the difference between lip flushing and popular lip fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®?

Some fillers are as thin as water, while others are as rigid as Jell-OTM. We assess which product is ideal for customers based on their aspirations.”
Lip blushing improves your lip colour and gives the appearance of larger lips without adding volume, whereas lip fillers add volume but not colour.
What is the duration of lip blushing?
According to some estimates, lip blushing can persist for up to two years, but outcomes can vary from person to person. Sun exposure and smoking can hasten the fading of your pigment.
Lip blushing would need to be done regularly to keep the results.
However, because it is a semi-permanent tattoo, it is difficult to reverse if you are unhappy with the results.
Insurance does not cover lip blushing. Services can range from $500 to $1,500 per session, depending on where you live.
How does the technique work?
Lip blushing, unlike a traditional tattoo, employs a tiny blade to produce wounds on your flesh. Each cut is filled with ink.
You can apply a layer of colour at a time until you achieve the desired effect. It is usually done in several sessions until the desired outcomes are obtained.
A tattoo artist or an esthetician typically does lip blushing.
The pain has been regarded as minor. A topical anaesthetic is normally used for around 20 minutes to numb your lips. The technician will then outline what you want your lips to appear like.
You can make your cupid’s bow more prominent or your lips more symmetrical. Ink is frequently accumulated on the sides of the lips, which tend to lose their natural colour as you age. Your technician will walk you through what they want to accomplish, and you will have the opportunity to make any changes or revisions before they begin.
You may have swelling, redness, and possibly bruising after the operation, which should take around an hour.
To assist minimise swelling, apply ice or a cold compress. Avoid smoking, and tell the technician ahead of time if you have a history of cold sores.
There is a remote possibility of infection. Keep your lips clean and avoid picking at scabs. Make sure to follow any aftercare instructions you may be given. The final results could take up to four weeks.
Is lip blushing safe?
There are various hazards associated with getting a tattoo. You may be allergic to the tattoo dye, especially if it is a red variety.
One of the most common allergic tattoo colours is red. You risk an allergic reaction when you deposit pink or red lipstick on your lips.
Furthermore, when tiny wounds are made to deposit pigment, there is a possibility of scar tissue formation.
Lip blushing may be beneficial for those concerned about the colour of their lips or have uneven pigmentation that they would like to correct.
However, doing your homework pays off. For example, having a pre-consultation with the tattoo artist or esthetician.
Inquire about cleaning methods and the sterilising process. Inquire how many lip blushing treatments they’ve performed and examine before and after images. You want to be sure you enjoy their approach and that it will produce the natural effects you desire.
