What is LIP TINT? 

Permanent Makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing, also known as micropigmentation. It is a cosmetic technique where pigment is inserted into the skin to resemble makeup typically achieved using a machine or manual hand tool to create permanent enhancements to the eyebrows, eyes, lips, and body.

 

LIP TINT is a technique of cosmetic tattooing performed specifically on the LIPS. It is done by implanting pigment into the skin by using machine with acupuncture needle. That allows the artist to create the look of very natural, tinted lips.

 

What kind of pigment is used in Lip Tint?

Cosmetic tattoos are made using organic and inorganic pigments that are safe to use and are created to fade over time.

How long will Lip Tint last?

Usually it last 2 years. Factors such as skin type, iron deficiency, pigment color (lighter colors fade faster or have less contrast) and sun exposure can affect time at which these pigments are broken down. For best results it is recommended that you follow our aftercare instructions and touch-up your tattoo every 10-15months (or as needed). Clients with oily skin might need touch-ups more often. Final results are NOT guaranteed as everyone has different skin, and retains pigment differently. Lip Tint is usually 2 appointment process and touch ups are recommended at 5-12 weeks. Please note that it is your responsibility to come back for your touch up  before 12 week mark. (the same rule apply for clients traveling from different states or countries). Any touch up after 12 weeks will be consider Color Boost ( see in pricing tab)

Does Microblading hurt?

Topical anesthetic is used to maximize comfort during the procedure. Every person has different pain tolerance. Receiving the procedure during your menstrual cycle usually increase your sensitivity and makes it more uncomfortable.

What can affect my Lip Tint results?

  • Bleeding during the procedure. It is very important that you follow pre care instructions to help minimize bleeding. You can find all information how to prepare for the service in Pre Care tab.

  • Smoking: Smokers may notice that their Microblading will fade faster

  • Anemia and iron deficiency: Your body will absorb these iron based pigments more quickly.

  • Sun exposure: Increased exposure to the sun will cause premature fading. It is recommended that you use sunscreen on your brows after healing process is complete. 

  • Color of pigment: Lighter colors fade more quickly than darker colors.

What happens during my appointment?

When you arrive for your appointment you will be asked to fill out consent forms. Your lip area will be thoroughly cleaned and topical anesthetic will be applied. While you are numbing, Karolina will go over aftercare instructions and answer all your questions. Once you have finished numbing, lip designing begins. Karolina will recommend design that will suit your face. You will work together to create lips that you like best and will look the most natural. Please keep in mind that Lip Tint is NOT A LIP INJECTION. We will not make your lips look larger as it will look very unnatural. You must approve the shape before Karolina begins the service.  Additional numbing will be applied during procedure to help keep you as comfortable as possible.

How long does the procedure take?

The time can vary depending on the procedure. For the initial appointment Karolina dedicates 2.5 hours. Much of that time is spent choosing colors, design and allowing the topical anesthetics to take effect.

 

Will permanent cosmetics change or look bad as I age?

Permanent cosmetics will fade gradually over time. The color will fade and when you return for a touch-up you can also change the color (within reason) as you age.

 

Are activities restricted during the healing period? 

It is important to avoid saunas, facials, steam baths, activities that will result in extreme sweating, tanning salons, sun and chlorinated or salt water pools for a minimum of a week and preferably two weeks after a procedure. 

What is your lateness policy?

We have a 15 minute late policy. Please call if you are going to be late. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment $100 deposit will be forfeited and your appointment will be cancelled.  If you want to book your next appointment, you will have to pay another deposit.
