Are you exhausted by reapplying your lipstick and gloss every day after each meal and after every few hours throughout work or a night out with friends? Are you not satisfied with the thin or the crooked shape of your lips? Or are you frustrated with the darkened shade or the loss of color of your once beautifully healthy lips? If you are, permanent lip makeup is perhaps the most effective solution available to you.
Thanks to permanent lip makeup, now you can bid adieu to all the hassle of applying and reapplying lipstick and the bother (or the embarrassment) of smudged lipstick around your lips and on your teeth. You won’t have to spend troublesome hours trying to paint your lips to get a more luscious pout either. At Care Contour, we offer an array of colors and designs you can choose from to get the pair of lips you so covet after.
How you should prepare for the treatment
While you should allocate about 3 hours’ time for the entire procedure, there will be no downtime. In case you decide to remove your facial hair around your lips using techniques such as tweezing, waxing shaving or threading, you should do it at least three days prior to the permanent lip makeup treatment. If you opt for the technique of laser hair removal, then you should undergo it at least 7 or 8 days before the procedure.
We also encourage you to bring your favorite lipstick or the lip liner pencil when you come to see us, so we can match the pigment colors with it if you want to. Our skilled and experienced technicians will also be happy to consult with you on the designs and the shades.
What is the procedure?
The permanent lip makeup treatment, like any other treatment of permanent makeup, uses the same technique; embedding pigment deposits, which will be selected from the color you prefer or which would suit you the most, onto the dermal layer of the skin to achieve the desired effect.
Prior to the treatment, we would conduct a patch test to examine if you would show any allergic reaction to the products we use. If you show positive results, we would proceed on with the rest of the steps of the treatment.
Unlike in a standard tattooing procedure, the needle will not be inserted five layers deep in to the skin; hence this procedure is a non-invasive one which will reduce, if not altogether eliminate, the risk of infection. A topical anesthetic will be applied on your lips to numb them to any discomfort that may be inflicted on it by the use of the needle.
What to expect after the procedure
Immediately after the procedure you will experience a slight swelling of your lips due to the insertion of the needle on them; however this will be reduced within 24-48 hours. Some patients may even have minor bruising which will fade away within a few days.
During the first 3-6 days the color of the lip makeup will look darker and brighter, but as your lips peel they will lighten in shade over the next few days, until it settles down to the color you originally selected.
Although the results will last a long time, you can always apply traditional lip makeup and change the shade of your lips as you desire. However with the effects of the permanent lip makeup, you will look glamorous and lively, whether you are wearing any makeup or not.
