Lip blushing is a form of semi-permanent makeup. Essentially, it is a cosmetic tattoo of the lips that enhances the beauty of the natural lip color, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness. This treatment delivers very natural results, once healed. Filler may be great for creating volume in your lips, but lip blush delivers a more natural look and give the illusion of fuller lips.

Here’s how it works: A tiny mechanized needle deposits pigment into the lips, which builds layers of color. It can be a corrective treatment to help even out the tone of the lips, as well as help with asymmetry.

How will I know if I need a touch up?

The best results generally come from a two step process. Touch ups allow us to analyze how the color regenerates beneath the skin and add in areas that may have healed incorrectly. Healed results are unique to each client and we do our best to create a consistent experience. Touch ups are beneficial for layering the pigment for more saturation and must be completed within 10 weeks from the original session for the reduced price-point to be honored.
