How to: Lip Embroidery Aftercare

Best lip embroidery in singapore 2

The lip embroidery process is a cosmetic procedure that can give you a beautiful, natural-looking lip colour and shape.

But what happens after the first session? How can you make sure your lip embroidery lasts as long as possible?

As professional semi permanent makeup artists, we at 3Beauties understand the importance of proper aftercare and are here to help!

In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of lip embroidery healing and give you some aftercare tips as well.

What can you expect during post-lip embroidery healing?

Traditional lip tattoos use bigger needles and carbon-rich tattoo ink, depositing ink deeper into the skin and causing more trauma.

Lip embroidery, in contrast, uses extremely tiny nanoneedles to implant micropigments into the skin’s surface layer, resulting in minimal harm to the lips and creating a gorgeous tinted lip balm effect.

Thus, your lips will take roughly 7-14 days to heal after lip embroidery. Here’s what you can expect during this period:

Day 1-5

Your lips may feel tight and tender. If you have more sensitive skin, you might also be prone to itching, dryness, peeling, and swelling.

Don’t worry, this is a normal reaction in the days after your lip embroidery appointment.

Day 3-5

Your lips should be noticeably less swollen at this point, but you may notice some mild peeling or dry skin.

It’s important to avoid picking at the skin as this can cause scarring or the pigments to fade – just let the dead skin fall off naturally.

Day 6-10

At this point, you should start to see the final colour of your lip embroidery. You may still experience some tenderness or dryness, but this should be minimal.

Your lips should be fully healed at this point. You can start to enjoy the results of your lip embroidery treatment!

How do I take care of my lips during and after healing?

Proper aftercare is essential to ensure that your lip blush lasts for as long as possible.

So, what are some things you can do to maximise your lip embroidery?

Avoid sun exposure

The sun can cause your lip colour to fade, so it’s important to avoid sun exposure for the first two weeks after the procedure.

It is recommended that you use lip balms with SPF protection to keep your lips moisturized and protected from the sun.

Stay hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is important for keeping your lips hydrated during the healing process. This will help reduce dryness, flaking, and tenderness.

Avoid touching your lips or using lip makeup

You should avoid touching your lips as much as possible when they are healing, as it can cause infections and the pigment to fade.

Similarly, avoid using lip products, like lip gloss and lipstick, for the first two weeks after the procedure. They might contain ingredients that cause the pigment to fade or could be harmful to your healing lips.

Use lip balm and an aftercare cream

As mentioned earlier, lip balms are important for keeping your lips moisturized. However, in addition to SPF, you should look for lip balms that are free of fragrances, colours, and other irritants.

It would also be wise to use an aftercare cream as they are designed to promote healing and reduce inflammation, speeding up the recovery process and reducing the risk of complications.

Foods to avoid

After your lip embroidery process, try not to consume certain foods that could irritate or harm your lips and surrounding skin, such as:

  • Spicy Food: Spice can cause irritation and discomfort to your lips, especially during the healing process.

  • Acidic Food: Food that is high in acid, such as citrus fruits and tomatoes, can cause your lips to become dry, cracked, or even infected.

  • Hot Foods and Beverages: Hot foods and beverages, such as soup or tea, can also cause irritation and discomfort to your lips after your lip embroidery session.

Will I need touch-up sessions?

After your lip micropigmentation procedure, it’s normal for the colour pigments to heal to a lighter tone than expected.

This can be due to various factors, including exposure to the sun, the natural ageing process, or simply the way your body heals.

Touch-up sessions are an opportunity to make any necessary adjustments to your lip embroidery, ensuring that the results are exactly what you wanted.

Similar to the initial lip micropigmentation procedure, touch-ups typically take less time and are less intense.

When to Schedule a Touch-Up Session

It’s recommended to schedule a touch-up session at least 4-6 weeks after your initial lip embroidery procedure.

This will give your lips enough time to fully heal and for you to assess the results. If you feel that the colour or shape of your lips needs to be adjusted, now is the time to schedule a touch-up session.

If you really like the lip colour, regular touch-ups can also keep the colour vibrant for longer.
