WHAT IS DARK LIP NEUTRALIZATION?
Melanin rich lips and lip hyperpigmentation is actually a common and harmless issue that many people have.
The darker the skin the higher amount of melanin there is in your skin. It can darken
from sun exposure, so hyperpigmentation on the edge of the upper lip area can be more noticeable.
Different heritages may be predisposed to hyperpigmentation as well as genetics.
Performed with a digital machine to implant pigment into lips, the technique and color applied neutralizes the dark color appearance. It is becoming a very popular procedure.
Keep in mind in order to neutralize the lips, your lips will be reddish/orangish right after the treatment, don't panic it is normal it will heal to a beautiful nude, pink/peachy color. Also some people may experience post- hyperpigmentation which will go back to normal after after sometime.
You may require more than 2 treatments. When lips are neutralized we can then implant a color of your choice.
Ideal for all skin types
FOR LIP BLUSH CAN WE GO OUTSIDE THE LIPLINE?
Yes we can but only 1.5 mm. The skin on the lip doesn't have pore as the rest of the skin on the face has. If more than 1.5 mm the line will heal darker than the rest.
WILL A LIP BLUSH TRIGGER A COLD SORE(S)?
If you are a carrier of herpes simplex virus and had one cold sore in the past, it will definitely trigger one. To prevent see PRE / POST CARE.
I HAVE LIP FILLER, CAN I HAVE A LIP BLUSH?
Absolutely, but you MUST wait 4 weeks after your procedure before your Lip Blush. Lip Fillers will even help to have more plump lips.
