Before You Show Up At The Appointment

  • If you are susceptible to cold sores / fever blisters / mouth ulcers / the procedure is very likely to activate these conditions. To help prevent or minimise the outbreak, it is recommended that you start using Zovirax Cream (available from the Chemist), for 2 days prior to your treatment, and for the 5 days immediately after.
  • If you suffer from severe cold sores, it is recommended you take a course of Zovirax, Famvir or similar tablets, commencing the day prior to treatment and then continued for 4 days after a Cosmetic Tattoo Lip treatment. The suggested dose is 1000mg per day (doctor's prescription required)
  • Cosmetic treatments to the lip areas do not cause cold sores. However, if you already carry the virus, then it is dormant in the body and can be activated by the treatment. Taking the proper medications recommended by your doctor will help you to prevent an outbreak.
  • Do NOT undertake any lip wax or bleaching treatments during the 14 days preceding your procedure.
  • Do NOT use Juvederm within 4 weeks prior and 8 weeks after your procedure. If you have had Juvederm, please receive clearance from your Juvederm technician before undergoing the procedure.
  • You can wear your normal make-up on the day of your treatment.
  • Bring your favourite lipsticks and/or lip liner(s) with you.

After Care

Within 21 days, Lips go through three phases: Too Dark, Too light, and Just Right. Relax and trust the process.

  • 1st stage: About 3 days with chapping
  • 2nd stage: Frosty and "loss of color"
  • 3rd stage: Blooming (14-21 days)

Important Rules During Healing and Aftercare

  • Avoid toothpaste on lips during healing.
  • Blot with napkin, don't rub during healing.
  • Drink through a straw for the first 3 - 5 days after your procedure.
  • To avoid infection, do NOT kiss until scabs have completely come off.
  • No oral sexual activity during healing.
  • No conventional lipstick during healing.
  • Put on the gloss given to you several times a day during healing, this helps retain color
  • Use older, darker pillow cases as this will stain
  • Continue on valtrex if necessary for cold sores
  • Do not peel chapping
  • Stay out of sun; after healing use sunscreen as exposure will result in loss of color
  • No soaps, or alpha hydroxides until healed
  • Do not evaluate lip process until 21 days
  • The color you leave with today is not your final color
  • Final color will be soft and natural
  • Keep your 21 day follow up appointment
