Lip Blushing - Cosmetic Tattooing
Diamond Laser Medispa Cosmetic Tattooing is one of the most unique salons in Taupo. The comfortable and relaxing atmosphere mixed with the exceptional customer service set it above your average clinic.
All Specialized Lip Creations include a full consultation, personalized lip measure & shape, initial first visit AND your follow up perfecting appointment 4-6 weeks later which allows Olivia, or Sylvia to make necessary adjustments.
The mouth area and lips are one of the first parts of the face to show aging. Beautify and enhance the colour and shape of your lips with a permanent lip line, lip line blend or full lip colour.
THIS PROCEDURE IS IDEAL FOR
Reshaping uneven lips.
Restoring colour to faded lips.
Creating fuller looking lips.
Preventing colour from
around the mouth.
Hiding fine lines and scars on/around the mouth.
We start your treatment with a consultation to find out your individual needs. We then go over the many designs, colours and shapes available, plus your underlying skin tone to determine the final colour.
All lip procedures are not considered finished until your second session (perfecting procedure) is complete.
FULL LIP CONTOUR
Asymmetry is very common with lips, impacting on how balanced your overall appearance of the face looks. With a full lip blend procedure, we can transform lips that have lost colour, contour, and volume due to age, or have visible scarring.
Please note we do not tattoo outside your natural lip shape (ie. onto the skin), we can however tattoo back the colour into your original shape that has receded over the years. Lips are outlined and then coloured in fully with one colour, giving a stronger all over appearance in comparison to a lip blend. It means you are able to wake up in the morning and all you need to do is gloss and go. This technique can create a natural finish but is preferred over lip blend if you are wanting to use a more creative colour as opposed to ‘natural’. Some clients observe that they no longer feel the need for fillers now there full lip colour has been restored to correct volume.

Lips are outlined then using the same colour, this colour is blended down into the lips approximately 1/3 to 1/2 way depending on your natural volume of lips.
This style creates a very natural finish, just apply lip gloss to your daily look.
LIP BLUSH TATTOO – AFTERCARE AND HEALING PLAN
This information is to assist with your lip blush tattoo post care. We have provided aftercare information as well as
a healing plan to help you understand what is happening during your healing process and important steps to ensure
Your aftercare is essential to your healing result and can make or break your design. If these rules are not followed
with precision, there is a large possibility of infection, blurred design and/or heavily faded results. Please adhere
to these rules strictly for the next 10 days.
We do note any pre-treatment directions that are not followed on our files and can generally tell if the aftercare
has not been followed correctly.
Your “Healing Time” will vary from around 7 to 10 days. You will know when your lip is healed as it will be soft and
smooth to touch and feel like normal skin with absolutely no flaking or dryness.
Until your lip reaches this “soft and smooth” stage – it has not healed, and you must continue to follow your
aftercare instructions until then.
Not everyone will experience flaking during their healing time….so “how do you know your lips have healed?” If
you are 7 to 10 days into your healing phase, and there are no signs of any dryness or flaking at all then you are
probably healed, and you can therefore stop following the aftercare steps.
1. 3 hours after your appointment is finished, you will need to take a cotton tip, and apply ½ a pea sized blob
of Bepanthan to the lip. Gently smear the Bepanthan cream over the lip on each side, until the lip has a
slight shine. You do not need to apply an excessive amount just enough to hydrate your skin. Less cream
applied more often, is best – excessive amounts will not give the best results. In fact, too much Bepanthan
can produce a poor result and unevenness in the final colour as they cannot breathe. Do not use anything
other than Bepanthan for healing.
2. Your lips will feel swollen and sore at this stage so treat with care.
3. You must apply this cream 2 times a day. You may notice colour rejecting on the cotton tip during
application, and this is fine.
4. You must continue to use the cream, until the lip is soft and smooth.
5. During the healing time of 7 to 10 days:
• DO NOT GET THE LIP WET
• DO NOT EXERCISE OR GET HOT AND SWEATY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE – YOUR RESULTS WILL BLUR.
• DO NOT PICK OR RUB YOUR LIP IF IT IS PEELING – THIS WILL CAUSE PATCHY LIPS
• DO NOT USE ANY MAKEUP OVER OR NEAR THE LIPS ESPECIALLY LIPSTICK.
• DO NOT HAVE ANY FACIAL TREATMENTS FOR 2 WEEKS
• DO NOT GO INTO THE DIRECT SUNLIGHT FOR 2 WEEKS
• DO NOT DO ANY WATERSPORTS
• DO NOT APPLY ANY TANNING LOTIONS/RETINOLS/CREAMS near the lips, other than Bepanthan.
Ten Days Healing
Here is a day to day breakdown of what you may experience during your healing time. This is to reassure you and
to help any questions you may have after your appointment.
Your lips will be swollen and may be uneven. Due to the nature of the treatment, and alternating sides during our
session, the lips will be at different stages when we finish. Don’t worry, this will subside quickly. Please do not
listen to feedback from your partners, friends or relatives at this time. They have not sat with you in the room and
do not understand the process. The colour will be dark today, as we are looking directly into an open “wound” at
the colour inside. Your lips will be tender to the touch.
Days 2 – 3
On days 2 and 3 the colour can look solid, bold and very dark. If you didn’t experience swelling on the 1st Day,
you may wake up with some on the 2nd day. This is because our lymphatic system slows overnight, and can cause
“puffiness” in the mouth. This is all part of the healing process. Be patient your lips will start to slowly go down.
Days 4 – 7
We are now into the middle of the healing phase. During this time the design can feel tight and sometimes a light
scab can start to form. You must not pick at the scab, let is slowly exfoliate and continue to gently apply your cream
to the area, without disturbing the flaking. Sometimes, when the colour is falling off, the lip underneath can appear
very light in colour – some clients can even think the colour has disappeared. During this time the skin is repairing
and the layers of skin healing over the lip underneath making it appear dull or even grey looking. The colour needs
time to settle and you will find that the “richness” of the colour will bloom back by the time we see you at your
Days 7 – 10
By this time most of the flaking (if any) will be finished. The lip should have lightened anywhere from 10-60%
overall and the skin should feel soft and smooth. You may now feel your lip is too light and notice some gaps, this
is normal. Each person is different, and each skin will retain pigment in different ways. We can address all of this
at the perfecting session and adjust, where required. If you are healed, you can now stop using your cream and
you are able to wet the lip and start exercising again.
NOTE – When your lip is healed be careful not to cover them when applying your makeup. You will find that this
considerably dulls the design and can make it look grey. To avoid this, apply your makeup as normal and then use
a cotton tip, with a tiny blob of moisturiser, and wipe over each lip, to reveal the “richness” of the colour.
Be careful to avoid getting any retinols, Vitamin A, exfoliants including AHA Acids (glycolic and Lactic), BHA Acids
(Salicylic), peels, scrubs, and keep lightening products including pigments controllers, away from the eyes at all
times. This will extend the longevity of the colour.
YOU WILL WAIT 4-6 weeks until we see you at your perfecting session, for good reason. It takes this length of
time for the skin to not only heal, but for the colour to settle and reveal its true shade and final shape. At the
perfecting session, we can address shape and colour alterations to suit.
We can assure you that we do this treatment every day and we have compiled this email to let you know that by
the time we see you next, your lip will have settled, and the colour and shape will have softened. We have ensured
that we can adjust your lip where required. Until then, do not worry and let the process take its journey, as
they will change dramatically, over the coming few weeks.
If you have any issues that have not been addressed above, please contact me via email and we will get back to
you as soon as possible.
