Lips

Lip liner can be applied to give more definition, correct even lips, or add fullness to the mouth. The procedure also helps prevent lipstick from bleeding and can minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

Healing process - What to Expect:

DAY 1:

Lips will be swollen, feel tender and hot, and do well with ice therapy. The lips will appear as though wearing bright or dark vivid lipstick. The color may appear warmer than ultimately desired.  They will feel very dry and you will feel a need to continually apply your aftercare product.

DAY 2:

Lips will usually be less swollen but still tight and dry.

DAY 3:

Even less swollen, still vibrant and might still feel hot.

DAY 4:

Skin begins to peel; you will see much pigment coming off. Do not pick or peel. Lip color under peeling skin will appear very light in color.

DAY 5:

Lips will appear and feel very chapped and dry. Peeling should be complete.

DAY 6-7:

The color appears very soft in color. Keep well moisturized with non-petrolatum products. Color may seem to disappear and almost become 'frosty' in appearance.

DAY 14:

Color begins to 'bloom' little by little each day. Keep well moisturized.

DAY  21-28:

Healing is complete. The color you see is the color you will retain. Keep moisturized.
