Lip Tattooing

Semi-Permanent Lips

As we get older our lips shrink and lose shape, those of us who suffer with cold sores will also find a loss in our lips’ natural lines (particularly the vermillion border). Semi-Permanent Cosmetics can give your lips far more definition by using colours that enhance your natural lip colour. For the more adventurous, a more dramatic effect can be achieved by using darker shades. Lip treatments can appear to change the size of your lips achieving an incredibly natural effect. Reshaping your lips can also make them look fuller. The colour and shape are slowly enhanced, and a detailed analysis is performed before the treatment.

Your practitioner will carefully draw the lip line & will not proceed until it is perfect and you are completely satisfied with the shape and colour. The chosen colour at first is 70%-40% darker than the healed result, (this is due to the epidermal cell renewal). Healing usually takes between 3-12 day’s depending on the area treated and how quickly your skin heals, as everyone is different. All procedure photos are taken immediately after treatment.

What can Semi-permanent lips do for me?

A consultation will be arranged to discuss the treatment and to do an allergy test to ensure you’re prepared for treatment. On your treatment date our practitioner will ensure you are happy with your chosen shape and colour. Once ready, a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied, once the numbing process is complete you will be made comfortable and the treatment will begin. Throughout the treatment more anaesthetic will be applied if necessary to ensure you are completely comfortable throughout the process. Once finished, you will see your new shape, and after 3 – 12 days your new lips will begin to look more natural. Your practitioner will go through the aftercare with you, ensure you are happy and that your follow up appointments are scheduled.

What process should I expect if I decide to have Semi-permanent makeup with Bellisimos?

After your treatment your practitioner will advise you to keep your new lips completely dry for 10-12 days, allowing the tattoo to settle into the skin and to heal. Just like any tattoo the area will begin to flake, however this does sound worse than it looks, and is just part of the healing process. Over the next 4 weeks some people find that some sections of the tattoo may disappear, if this happens to you, don’t worry as it’s usually just a “vacation” and the tattoo will usually reappear before your top up. If some of the pigments don’t come back, our practitioner will reapply the pigment again during your follow up appointment. You will also be given a vitamin gel to apply to your lips to help them heal and to stay as soft as possible throughout the healing process.
What’s the aftercare?
Are you tired of perfecting your lip liner every morning?
Some of our clients feel naked without their lip liner shaped to perfection. They tell us that they feel bare and wearing it makes them feel more confident and that without lip liner they feel their lips look too fine. They have also explained that having to reapply it isn’t always convenient, and when it’s looking half worn after a few hours they don’t like the look. If this sounds like you then Semi-Permanent lip liner could be for you. We also create beautifully blushed lip colours if you would like to blend the lip liner into the body of your lips which creates a truly beautiful result. It can transform your smile. Do your eyes make you feel self-conscious in your daily activities?
Do you wish that your lips could look luscious and “done” whilst on holiday by the pool, for the days you’re running late, or even when you’ve just woken up?
We understand that having to face people with the fear that your lip liner isn’t looking as perfect, or even as bold in colour as your first application can make you feel self-conscious, you may also feel tired of reapplying it throughout the day. Having this treatment would mean these issues would be a thing of the past.

Are there any side effects after having Semi-permanent makeup?

An allergy test is done prior to your treatment to ensure you’re not allergic. The only other side effect is, in some rare cases some peoples bodies / immune systems don’t accept the tattoo and rids of it naturally, meaning some tattoos don’t take to the person’s skin, this is very rare but does sometimes happen.
Who cannot have Semi-permanent makeup?
Patients who have immune disorders such as Systemic lupus erythematosus, keloid or hypertrophic scars, HIV, TB, tumours, growths or cysts. Clients who have had chemotherapy need to wait until their antibodies are back to normal. Clients need to wait 6 months after:
  • Roacutane
  • Retin A
  • Steroid treatments
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser
  • ​2 weeks after using aha preparations
How long will the results last?
Semi-permanent makeup can last as long as two years or sometimes more, depending on the person’s skin, most clients will arrange top up appointments at some point in-between to keep their look updated and defined as some fading is normal.
