FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • I SUFFER FROM COLD COLD SORES CAN I GET LIP BLUSH?
    Yes you can!! If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex) and are scheduling a lip tattoo we advise you to use anti-herpes medication for example Zovirax ointment that can be obtained from a chemist. Use the preparation 1-week prior and 1-week after your enhancement 5 times a day to reduce the incidence of outbreak by 50%. Oral anti-herpes medication (Acyclovir) will control the incidence of an outbreak more or less completely. PMU does not cause cold sores, however if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the nervous system and can be aroused by the infusion process.
  • HOW LONG DOES LIP BLUSH LAST?
    Results will always vary from person to person, after your initial session and the touch up, your results should last between 2-5 years. Additional touch ups may be required depending on the person and look desired.
  • DOES LIP BLUSH HURT?
    Pain levels vary from person to person. Strong medical grade topical anesthetic cream is used before and during your procedure to keep you as pain free as possible.
  • CAN I STILL WEAR OTHER LIPSTICK COLOURS?
    The colors Rachel tattoo with are natural and intended to look very natural. We can certainly enhance your natural color or add color if your lacking, or add a specific tint that your looking for, but it remains soft and natural. That way when you do decide to change it up and want to wear lipstick it will still look great over top, and can cover you tattoo with whatever color we decide to use.
