What is Lip Blushing & How Does it Work?
Meet the stunning treatment that is trending everywhere at the moment, the Lip Blush! Lip blushing is a semi-permanent make up treatment, designed to enhance the colour and definition of the lips. Our trained lip blushing expert achieves the lip blush look by inserting a pigment into the lips using small needles. This is carried out in multiple layers to create an even tone and shape.
How many treatments are needed?
This is a two-phase process. Your treatments will be performed 4 weeks apart. The first treatment will take 2 hours. This is where we do an in-depth consultation with colour matching and shaping of the lips. The second treatment will take 1 hour. At this appointment we will do touch ups where necessary. We also discuss your homecare and the healing process. A top up is advised every 12-24 months to maintain definition and colour. Please note frequent lip exfoliation, sun exposure, and smoking could all result in the pigment fading quicker.

What to expect after the treatment?
There will be swelling and possible bruising for the first 3-5 days. As the lips heal, you will experience dryness and flaking. You will receive an aftercare product to minimise these side effects. The colour will appear darker in the days following the treatment but will fade during the 4 week healing period. Please note if you suffer from cold sores, you will get a cold sore after the treatment. Please inform us so we prepare you for this.
Potential Side Effects:
- These side effects will subside as the lips heal, contact MK if there is excessive pain or swelling that worsens
Duration: 2 hours for the first appointment and 1 hour for the follow up.
