What is lip blush?

Lip blush is semi permanent makeup, it is the implantation of pigment into the dermis layer of the lips, also known as semi permanent lipstick. At present it is one of Solexis’ most popular treatments and we offer it from our treatment room in Basingstoke. The pigment is implanted into the lip skin by way of tattooing using a tattoo pen which has between 1 – 7 needles. With 30 years in the health and beauty industry and 10 years in advanced semi permanent makeup, we are lucky enough to not only encompass Basingstoke and Hampshire but further afield, leading the way to perfecting the latest techniques in semi permanent makeup.

Does Lip Blush hurt?

The lips are a very sensitive and vascular area but pre numbing is applied for 20 minutes before the treatment and secondary numbing is used throughout the treatment, coupled with 10 years experience with Semi Permanent makeup most of my clients find lip blush a pain free and relaxing treatment.

What is the aftercare procedure for lip blush?

Aftercare for the lip blush treatment is straightforward, clean the lips with damp cotton (bottled water) every 30 minutes until bedtime, pat dry and apply vitamin A & D which I will give before you leave the salon. Sometimes the lips will bruise even after the procedure but do not worry, the bruising will dissipate after a few hours. The lips may be swollen the second day, do not ice but keep applying the vitamin A & D, do not allow the lips to dry out. No sauna, no pools and no sunbathing for 7 days after the procedure the initial healing will now be complete but continue with the vitamin A & D until you come back for your top up/touch up which is best 8 weeks later. If you have questions or worries, please feel free to contact me.
