Lip Blush / Lip Neutralization
Pre-Care Instructions


  • Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oils, vitamin E, niacin, or drink excessive alcohol at least 48 hours prior to and after your procedure.


  • Do not take any prescription blood thinners at least 48 hours prior to and after your procedure.


  • Discontinue any vitamin A skin care products (Retin-A, retinols) close to the enhancement area at least two weeks prior to your procedure.


  • Discontinue use of AHA (chemical exfoliation) skin care products close to the area to be tattooed at least one week prior to your procedure.


  • No laser or electrolysis on or around the treatment area one week prior to procedure.


  • Clients with lip filler cannot book within 6 weeks of last lip injection.

  • Plan trips or events a minimum of 14 days after the procedure. 


  • No caffeine of any kind for 72 hours prior to procedure.


  • Do not have any chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense facial treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure.


  • If you have been on prescription Accutane in the past, you MUST wait at least one year before considering this procedure.


  • It is highly recommended that you avoid SUN and TANNING BED exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure.


  • Bring in your favorite lip color if you have a specific color you're wanting to achieve.



If you are prone to cold sores, it is highly likely that lip blushing will trigger an outbreak, which will also result in loss of pigment and patchy results.


Due to the nature of this technique ALL clients, whether or not they have a history of cold sores, must consult with their doctor or dentist for a prescription of Valtrex, Zovirax or any other Anti-viral medication for both pre-care and post-care. Medication is taken 5 days prior to the procedure, the day of the procedure, and 5 days after, totaling 11 days.

Consult with your doctor for any additional questions. If you have an outbreak, or any other type of scratch/acne on or around your lip area around the time of your scheduled appointment then your appointment must be rescheduled until the area is completely clear.

1 Week Prior to Lip Service:

  • Exfoliate your lips lightly with a lip scrub every morning and every night.

  • Immediately after exfoliation apply a lip balm or Aquaphor for hydration.

  • Keep lips moisturized at ALL times and reapply balm/ Aquaphor throughout the day to maintain maximum moisture.


High quality lip scrubs, balms and ointments are recommended for best results.


It is VERY difficult to implant pigment properly on dry, chapped lips. Proper pre-care instructions are very important to follow to prevent dry lips from occurring on the day of your service.
