Lip Blush Post-Care: Can You Kiss After the Treatment?
Lip blush is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure known for its ability to deliver natural-looking tinted lips. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are post-care guidelines that ensure optimal results and longevity. One common question we receive at our Permanent Makeup Studio is, “Can you kiss after getting a lip blush?” Let’s delve into the details.nn
Understanding the Lip Blush Procedure
Lip blush is a form of semi-permanent makeup that uses micropigmentation to infuse the lips with a natural, subtle color. The procedure involves:
- Consultation: Assessing the natural lip color and determining the desired shade.
- Numbing: Applying a numbing cream to reduce discomfort.
- Pigmentation: Using specialized equipment to deposit the chosen pigment into the lips.
- Finalizing: Cleaning the treated area and giving post-care instructions.
Post-Lip Blush: The Immediate Aftercare
Why Kissing is a No-No
After the lip blush procedure, the lips are essentially a treated wound. Engaging in activities like kissing can introduce bacteria, leading to potential infections or complications. Moreover, the pressure from kissing can cause the freshly deposited pigment to shift, compromising the final appearance.
The First 48 Hours: Crucial Care Steps
- Avoid Kissing: For the reasons mentioned above, refrain from any lip-to-lip contact.
- Stay Hydrated: Drink ample water, but be cautious not to wet the treated area.
- Don’t Touch: Resist the urge to touch, scratch, or peel any flaking skin.
- Avoid Hot Foods & Drinks: This can cause unnecessary irritation.
How Long to Wait Before Kissing After Lip Blush?
The general recommendation is to wait at least 7-10 days post-treatment before engaging in any lip activities, including kissing. This gives the lips adequate time to heal and the pigment to settle properly. However, always follow the specific instructions provided by your technician.
Enhancing and Prolonging Your Lip Blush Results
Regular Lip Care
Invest in a good lip balm or moisturizer to keep the lips hydrated. This not only ensures the pigment looks its best but also extends the longevity of the lip blush.
Protect from UV Rays
Exposure to the sun can cause the pigment to fade faster. Always apply a lip balm with SPF when heading outdoors.
Over time, the lip blush may start to fade. Regular touch-ups, usually once a year, can help maintain the vibrancy and freshness of the color.
