PMU LIP BLUSHING & LIP NEUTRALIZATION

LIP NEUTRALIZATION (Darker Tone)

What is Neutralization?

Lip Neutralization involves the use of  Permanent ink to lighten darker tone or hyper pigmented lips. Darker tone lips maybe hereditary or from applying constant heat to lips (smoking or vaping), dietary imbalances, allergens, stretching of the lips with fillers. In order to lighten darker tone lips, the first step is cosmetically performing lip neutralization. 

 

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

We recommended at least three to four sessions 6 weeks apart. After the last session you may schedule touch up sessions. Color correction last for at least a year.

What to Expect After The Procedure:

Immediately after the treatment, the lips appear swollen & full. The pigment will make the lips look brighter the usual. Swelling will decrease over four hours post treatment. Lip pigment will fade from day 5 as the lips heal. Approximately 50% of the pigment will fade leaving a soft natural tone. The healing phase involves peeling, dry, tender to touch lips. This is related to oxidation of the pigment (ink) and new skin formation. Healing may vary person to person with an average of 6 days for the lips to repair. The inner layer of the lip known as dermal layer may take up to 6 weeks for complete healing. 

LIP BLUSHING (Lighter Tone)

Lip Blushing involves the use of  Permanent ink to restore natural to luscious tones. Pale tone lips may fade from maybe smoking, dietary imbalances, allergens, or  stretching of the lips with fillers.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

We recommend one session that typically last for 12-18 months.
