As you guys may or may not know I recently had a lip blush tattoo done (crazy I know) and I promised an update on my results! To read the blog post on the procedure, click here.
So it’s 10 days on! First off I want to talk about the healing process so far! As you can see in the picture taken 5 minutes after leaving the clinic, they were swollen, numb and very red and I was so relieved the whole ordeal was over!!
The following day the numbness had subsided but they still felt very tingly, as If I had pins and needles in my lips… so weird! They also begun to scab over the next day, mostly around the outer line! All I can say is thank goodness I had a week off work! If you have this treatment done I would really advise staying out of the way of the public as it’s not pretty, unless of course you like being stared at strangely ofcourse!
Now i’m really kicking myself because I thought I took a picture 3 days after showing you some lovely scabby lips… nice! But I can’t find it, grrr! So day 3/4 the scabs covered the whole of the lips, not as much as the outer line but still very scabby! They looked sore as anything but they really weren’t! The swelling had gone down and the pins and needles feeling had lessened. It was so hard to not pick the scabs.. seriously hard!
By day 5 the scabs had gone, I was able to give the hubby a big smooch (sorry) but the colour had reeeeally faded! I was told it would fade by 70% and boy they weren’t lying! They now look a more pinky colour, the outline is fab! I love how the shape of my lips are way more defined now! I only had the treatment done to define my lips but if you want to change the shape of them this treatment works wonders!!
So now it’s 10 days on and the colour is changing everyday! The therapists did say that they can take a month to really show their real colour, very strange but it’s true, it looks different every day! I am still using the healing balm as my lips seem to be quite dry still and this works amazingly and just looks like a nice lip gloss, I wish it smelt nicer though!!
So there you have it! 10 days on and i’m really pleased, I wish the colour was darker but i’ll do another update 1 month on and tell you if the colour has changed again!
I really recommend this treatment, it’s so much more natural then fillers, my tips would be, choose a dark/ bright colour and expect some pain.. it’s bearable though! 🙂
