Post care:


No cleansers, makeup, swimming, spas or direct water on the area until the healing phase has finished (usually 7-10 days)

Two hours after your procedure has finished gently wipe area with a damp cotton round and pat dry with a dry tissue then apply your first layer of barrier cream.

  • apply cream 3-4 times a day
  • always wipe off old cream with a dry tissue or cotton round before applying fresh cream
  • apply cream with cotton tips, do not use your fingers
  • around day 3-4 the area may start flaking, this is normal. Do not pick at it. It will be over in a few days
  • the area may be itchy, this means it is healing. Just apply a little more cream for comfort
  • once the healing process is complete the colour underneath will be much lighter in appearance.
  • sunscreen is advised after healing process to help prevent premature fading
  • immediately after treatment lips will be swollen and tender to touch and colour will be much darker than chosen during the consultation
  • apply cream constantly to keep them moist. This will help with soreness and keeping the colour in
  • the skin will flake, this is normal, do not pick at the flaking, it will come off naturally
  • no hot drinks or spicy food for the first day
  • no lipstick, kissing or direct water for the first 3 days
  • they will take up to one week for the healing process to be complete
  • do not be worried if you lose a lot of colour as you can lose up to 80% the first time
