LIPS - Before your treatment

  • Exfoliate your lips a day before you come in for your procedure, lips cannot be dry, or cracked, if it is, it will be very hard for the artist to do the procedure on your lips.  Exfoliate by using sugar mixed with honey, ratio of 2:1 ( more sugar than honey ) and use a toothbrush to scrub all the dead and dry skin off and rinse.  After that, moisturized your lips with chapstick or vaseline.

  • If you are prone to herpes or cold sores, it is recommend to take anti viral medication a few days before procedure and continue to take after the procedure.  This is to prevent cold sores from arising on your lips.

LIPS - After your procedure

  • DO NOT eat Hot or spicy food, such as soups or anything that can enhance the sensitivies to your new tattooed lips.

  • Wash the treated lips gently with saline water and apply A&D ointment every 3 hours during daytime.

  • Do the same right after eating and rinse your mouth with non-alcohol mouth-wash.

  • Blot the area dry. Do not rub.

  • Using Q-tips to apply A&D ointment, do not double-dip.

  • Use ice-pad for no more than 15 minutes at a time the first few nights to reduce swelling.

  • Do not pick at the treated lip at any time during healing, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own.

  • Do not let the treated lip dry out completely, since this can cause scabbing and cracking of skin surface.

  • After initial healing (7-10 days, completely peeled) use lip gloss with sun block over the treated lip to preserve  color.

  • Continued use of at least SPF 30 sunblock with UVA and UVB protection will help to prevent fading.


 Be careful to avoid infection of the treated lip for 15 days after the procedure:


  • Always wash your hands before touching the treated lip

  • Do not share your aftercare product (A&D ointment) with anyone

  • No facials or masks for 15 days, and avoid them in the permanent makeup area indefinitely.

  • No swimming pools, Jacuzzis or other bodies of water for 15 days.

  • Do not soak your face underwater in a bathtub or allow the hot shower to spray directly in your face for 15 days.

  • Expect the color to eventually lighten by up to 40% once the healing process is complete.

  • Permanent Lip Color is in the skin rather than on top of it like lipstick, so it will have a matte finish unless you apply lip gloss  or lipstick on top of the permanent makeup.

  • Color may appear sketchy at different stages of healing. Be patient. This is a process that does not yield immediate results.

  • Permanent makeup pigment is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink.

  • Permanent Makeup does fade and is expected to last 2 to 5 years before requiring a touch-up.

  • If you develop excessive redness, itchiness, or white pimple-like spots in the treated area, you may be having a reaction to the A&D ointment. If this occurs, wash the area, and stop using A&D ointment or any other product on the area. Allow the reaction to settle down, which it should do in 24-72 hours.

  • The permanent makeup lips cannot be treated again within 30 days or scarring can result. If you see changes that you  would like to make to shape or color, they will need to wait until after this 30-day period. 

Products to Not Use on the treated lip:


  • No Neosporin, Vaseline or other petroleum products while the treated lip is healing.

  • No anti-acne products (e.g. Benzoyl Peroxide, Pro-active) or lightening creams (bleach creams)  hydroquinone around any treated lip, since they will cause rapid fading.

    No anti-aging products or facial products containing Alpha Hydroxyls (AHAs), Retin-A, Lactic or Glycolic Acids. These will fade permanent makeup, since creams do not have assigned seating and travel in the skin.
