Taking good care of your permanent makeup is crucial to achieving the best result.


  •  For the 10 days following the permanent makeup procedure

  • 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 the first few nights to reduce swelling.

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

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


  • If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing can cause outbreaks. If this occurs the following actions may help:

  • Do not pick at the treated lip at any time during healing.

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

  • 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.

  • Do not scrub, scratch or pick the treated lip or you will lose color that may not be repairable.

  • Do not expose the treated lip to sun or tanning beds without using sun block. This can cause pre-mature 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.

  • Laser procedures done within 3 inches of permanent makeup can cause fading

  • Face peels, even mild ones, may cause permanent makeup to lighten.

  • Microdermabrasion in the permanent makeup area can fade permanent makeup.

  • Any removal of dead cells on permanent makeup area can cause pre-mature fading.

  • No exercising for 24 hours, avoid direct contact with animals and no gardening for a week.

What to Expect

  • There may be moderate swelling, redness and bruising for the first 5 days. Apply a Ziploc bag filled with water and ice for no more than 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling.

  • During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own.

  • 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.


  • You can make a touch-up appointment 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure if needed

  • Want to refresh your color? Get an annual touch-up or as needed.

  • Touch-ups scheduled more than 2 years after the initial is considered as a full service again.
