Some brides prefer bold red lipsticks, while others prefer neutrals regarding bridal makeup. What if we said lipstick could be swapped for a long-lasting cosmetic treatment that will not fade after your first glass? This treatment is available, and brides may want to use it on their big day. Lip blushing is described by Dominique Bossavy, a NanoColor specialist in color infusion. It involves injecting custom-compound pigments into the layers of the lips to improve color loss and create definition.
This procedure is worth it, regardless of whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid or just a guest at a wedding. This information will help you keep your pout perfected throughout the process.
How long does lip blushing take?
This is a great thing. Although several sessions may be required to achieve the best results, they shouldn’t take more than one hour. After a consultation, pigments can be mixed and then applied. Your lips will feel a little reborn. Bossy says, “Think about a child with the cute cupid’s bow–full lips which are balanced, bright and often described as rosy.” The contrasting color fades with time. That is what you need to do. They want to make their faces look better. This is the ultimate goal for lip blushing.
Lip Blushing: Will it Hurt You?
You’ve probably heard the expression, “Beauty can be found in pain.” This procedure won’t make that a problem. Bossy claims that you won’t feel any pain but will feel a slight vibration or ping sensation. You will be able to handle an eyebrow tweeze.
Is it safe for all skin types?
Although the simple answer is yes, however, results can vary. Over time, lighter skin tones will turn to pale pink, while darker skin tones can change into browns and grays. She explains that the lips must be warmed to eliminate their natural gray or dark brown colors. Bossy says hyperpigmentation is more common in women of color and those with darker lips. Sometimes this occurs in a darker or more brown color. If there is a color difference, it may appear in darker or lighter areas. Rosy lips are intended to balance, enhance, or correct skin color and natural lip tissue. To make darker lips look more natural, I warm up grayish-dark colors to create a softer lip tissue that compliments and highlights the other colors, or I would create a more uniform tone across the entire lip area.
How much does lip blushing cost?
This procedure costs $4,000, but you can consider it an investment. It can last well beyond your wedding and even into your honeymoon. Bossy says that pigments can last up to three years based on the experience of thousands of lip-blushing patients.
Do You Need to Get it Before Your Wedding?
It is best to have this procedure performed at least four to six months before your wedding. Bossy says that extreme dryness and sensitivities can develop after a session. Before your first procedure, it is recommended that you moisturize and exfoliate your lips.
What are some maintenance tips?
Bossy advises against saturating your lips with oils, emollients or other barrier protection products. These will stop transferred pigments from properly settling in the tissue. She says, “Aftercare is a salve that I give to all my patients to use religiously.” As this can also disrupt the healing process, she advises against heavy water on your lips and face.
