Beautiful, pouty lips with a natural looking tint of color? Sounds like every woman’s dream! Our amazing tinted lips technique, revolutionized by our artist Kostas Angel, makes that dream a reality! This service yields soft and natural results while keeping pain and discomfort to a minimum; not to mention, the aftercare process requires no down time! Tinted lips help to enhance your natural shape, giving your lips a contour without seeing a defining line. It can even help with scarring on the lips and uneven skin tone. Tinted lips do not impact your ability to wear lipstick, and it can fully be covered by any lip product whenever you want. This technique is so soft, people will be wondering what lip product gives you such a balanced look! It is best to moisturize your lips well in the days leading up to your procedure (with Aquaphor or something similar). Post-procedure lips must be coated with a moisturizing agent throughout the day and before bedtime. The procedure requires approximately 1-1.5 hours, and you can go about your regular routine immediately after. A touch-up is required 6-12 weeks after the initial procedure. After that, touch-ups are determined on an individual basis.
Please note: For the first 4-5 days, lips may be sensitive to touch, slightly swollen, appear uneven, and the color may be brighter than desired. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic lip procedures.

Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink have their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to others compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectation and know that she / he may need more frequent adjustments that others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
Your post procedure lip care consists of cleaning your lips every hour for the first four hours after your procedure and then every three to four hours the day after your procedure using our after care pads which will be provided to you. In between each wipe aquaphor should be applied to your lips and your lips should be kept moist and coated at all times even at night. You must apply a thick coat of aquaphor to your lips before bedtime. We recommend keeping your lips coated and moisturized for 3- 4 weeks post procedure. Your lips may slightly scab and peel. You must let the scabbing process happen naturally. This is very important for your retention and skin healing. Do NOT pick at the scabs, scratch your lips, peel your scabs off, or scrub the area. This can result in scarring and will affect your overall retention of the pigment.
