Lip Blushing

What is Lip blushing?

Lip blushing is a semi-permanent makeup technique that can enhance your current lip shape, size or color. It is great for reshaping asymmetrical lips. Fuller lips can be achieved with lip blushing without the use of fillers. However, if you currently use fillers you may want to define your lip borders and enhance your color with lip blushing. 

How does it work?

Lip blushing is done by depositing colored pigment into your lips and along your lip line to improve the overall look. At NOVA DERM INSTITUTE, soft contouring with a specialized machine is done with best quality lip pigments to help add depth and dimension to the lips. The technician uses a sterilized tool to perform the blushing procedure.

What to expect during your treatment?

The technician should use a sterilized tool to perform the blushing procedure, to carefully deposit the pigment into your lips. Depending on the color of your choice, your technician will either use a single color or mix colors to create the perfect shade for you. The process usually takes 1 to 2 hours.


What to expect after your treatment?

You might experience a degree of discomfort following your Lip blushing treatment. This is to be expected. You might experience a mild burning sensation, dry lips, swelling and peeling in the next few days.


What are the benefits of this treatment?

  • The ability to customize your lip shade.

  • Long-lasting lip color.

  • Color correction for uneven pigmentation and scars.

  • Fuller looking lips without injectables or surgery.

  • Increased pigmentation for aging and pale lips.


Does it hurt?

Lip blushing isn’t considered a very painful procedure, but you may opt for a topical anesthetic to numb your lips, we at NOVA DERM INSTITUTE normally apply numbing for 15-20 minutes before starting the procedure. 


What are the side effects?

 It takes roughly one week for the lip area to heal; mild swelling and dryness is expected for a few days post treatment.

How many treatments will you need?

Lip Blushing is performed in two visits, scheduled four to six weeks apart. 

How to prepare for the treatment?

To prime the lips for blushing, include a lip scrub and moisturizing balm into your daily skincare routine. Pigment applied to smoother, softer lips will maintain a more vibrant and even appearance. Plus you will heal better and faster.


Is this treatment permanent?

Once healed, you can simply apply your favorite lip gloss or lip conditioner and be out the door. The results last one to two years. Touch ups are recommended after one to two years depending on how fast the body metabolizes the color. If you are using retinoids for home care you may need more frequent touch ups.
