Lip Blush Aftercare Instructions

Lip Blush post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new lips. Please read the following aftercare instructions carefully:
Day 1
Immediately following the procedure, lips will feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. They may appear swollen and bright in color.
For 4 hours after treatment, apply light pressure on lips with a clean paper towel, to remove any lymph. After 4 hours, start applying ointment (Aquaphor) as needed to keep lips constantly moist
No kissing, rubbing or friction on treatment area
Day 1-3
Apply ointment on lips several times a day. Keep lips moist at all times. Avoid oily, spicy and heavily seasoned food and drink with a straw. After every meal gently rinse and clean lips with water and pat dry, then re-apply ointment.
DAY 4-7
Between these days, lips will begin and end the process of peeling, and color will lighten by 30%-50%.
Do not pick or rub your lips and let the peeling happen naturally. Continue keeping your lips moist!
Lips are done peeling, color is light. You may return to normal routines. Lips will continue to heal, up to 6 weeks. Every week more color will surface, it is important to continue keeping lips moist to get the best color at the end of the healing phase.
WEEK 6-8
Your lips are healed and you're feeling unstoppable!!! Just add some lip gloss and go! In most cases it requires two treatments to complete the lip transformation.
The following must be avoided during all 14 days post treatment:
Increased sweating
Practicing sports
Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
Sun tanning or salon tanning
Exposure to UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the treatment area
Touching of the treatment area except for when applying the post-care ointment with a cotton swab
Picking, peeling, or scratching of the treatment area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Viral infections (diseases)
  • Had Botox within 24 hours of appointment
  • Had an organ transplant
  • Epilepsy
  • Sick with a cold or flu-like virus
  • Used Accutane in the past 6 months.


  • Stop using any skin thinners (Vitamin A, glycolic acids, exfoliation) on the brow area 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
  • Any waxing or brow shaping should be done at least 2 days before.
  • If you tint your brows, tint it at least one week prior to the procedure.
  • Cosmetic botox or fillers should be done 2 weeks prior or 2 weeks after.
  • DO NOT consume alcohol, caffeine or take any blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, Niacin 48 hours before your procedure, this will cause excess bleeding and may affect your results).
  • You may come in with how you normally draw in your brows so I can see what you are used to.  This is especially important for clients who desire a specific brow shape. If you are open to suggestions, I am happy to help design a custom brow to personally suit you.
  • You may experience hypersensitivity and more pain around or during your menstrual cycle.
  • For added comfort please feel free to come in prior to your appointment for numbing cream you can apply to make sure you are even more comfortable. Apply it to your brows and cover brows with saran wrap for 60 min before your appointment, then reapply 30 minutes before your appointment.
  • We will not be able to tattoo over any blemishes, sores, and moles in or around the brow area.


After care is crucial, it is very important to follow these instructions for the full 10 day healing period to ensure proper healing and color retention. Results will vary for all individuals and we can not guarantee your results.

  • Use a gentle cleanser (lather it up in your hands) and wash your brows morning and night everyday for 7-10 days or until the flaking has stopped.
  • Make sure you blot completelydry with a clean towel after washing.  Allow NO WATER to collect or sit in the brow area.
  • Apply theointment provided to your brows morning and night.   A very small amount (size of a piece of rice) to each brow with clean fingers.
  • Oily skin types may be told to avoid ointment all together and allow a dry heal process for the 7-10 days.


  • DO NOT expect your brow tattoos to heal perfectly after the first session. This can be a 2 step process. It takes time.  BE PATIENT during your 10 day healing process your brows will change and appear different from day to day.
  • Immediately after your procedure brows will appear darker and more defined and this will last up to 2 weeks . Your brow tattoo can appear more solid, hair strokes may seem to disappear and it may look wet and painted on.
  • Around days 4-5 you will experience flaking and your brows may look dry. DO NOT PICK your brows, let any dryness fall off naturally. If flakes gets picked off prematurely missing hair stokes will result and cause patchy brows which can lead to scarring.
  • Your brow tattoo will take up to 4 weeks to fully heal. When the flaking comes off the hair strokes may seem faint this is because a fresh layer of skin has healed over the brow tattoo. Give your brows a few weeks and the hair strokes will become clearer.  Color will continue to change on a daily basis until all healing is complete at the 4 week mark.
  • You may experience itchiness in the brows after the 10 days for up to 2 months due to the healing process of the dermal layer.
  • Not everyones hairstoke brows can heal clean and crisp. Hairstrokes for oilier skin types tend to heal more solid and powdery while drier skin types tend to heal more crisp and defined. Also for those who bleed more may tend to need more touchups as the blood pushes the pigment out while we tattoo.


  • DO NOT expose your brows to the sun during the healing process.  UV Rays can alter the pigment of your tattoo.  Following the first 10 days SPF is important for the longevity of your nano brows.
  • DO NOT sweat excessively for 10 days. Sweat contains salt and can infect and prematurely fade your brow tattoo. Salt in the sweat may also alter the color of your tattoo.  Moderate exercise is fine.
  • DO NOT run direct water on your brow tattoo. This is especially important in the first few days, you do not want to wash out any pigment.
  • DO NOT use Vaseline on your tattoo.
  • DO NOT use any makeup, creams, exfoliants on the brows for 10 days.
  • DO NOT go into sauna’s, pools, and steam rooms.
  • DO NOT get massages or facials or skin treatments during the healing process.
  • DO NOT go tanning and if you do cover your brow tattoo, UV rays can alter the color of your tattoo.
  • DO not use exfoliants, retinol acids, or AHA’s on the brow area.  It will fade your tattoo prematurely.
  • DO NOT use laser light therapy on your brow tattoo. This can darken, lighten, and distort the pigment.


Allow your brows a MINIMUM of 4 weeks to heal before booking a touch up.  This gives you the time to decide if you do or do not need a touch up appointment. It's takes a full 4 weeks for the color to settle.

It is your responsibility to book your touch up appointments. Please keep the high demand in mind. If your tattoo comes back too faded additional charges may apply.

  • Touch ups are typically done within the first 3 months after the initial appointment.
  • This can be a 2 (and sometimes even 3) step process.
  • The first session is used to build shape and gain symmetry.
  • The second session is used to perfect the brows and add density.
  • This is a process and some clients may need multiple sessions to achieve their desired result.
  • Do not expect perfect results after the first session.
  • Darker skin and oily skin women, permanent makeup will not look as bold or sharp compared to lighter, dryer skin type clients.
  • Some client’s skin may have a harder time retaining pigment and may require additional sessions.


THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF RESULTS as everyone’s result will vary due to skin type, lifestyle and the initial 10 day care and longterm care of your brow tattoo.

  • Use at least SPF 50 to protect your brows, sun exposure will cause fading and can alter the color of your tattoo.
  • Do not use chemical exfoliants on the brows, this will case the brows to fade faster.
  • Do not laser your brow area (IPL etc), some lasers may change the color of the ink.
  • As the tattoo fades the strokes will get fainter and less defined.
  • Maintenance is required to maintain desired results. Touchups are done on average every 9 - 24 months to maintain you brow tattoo.
  • Hairstroke brows typically last 1-3 years.
