HEALING SCHEDULE

  • Day 1: Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick look with a bright look.
  • Day 2: Slight selling, reddish and tender with a slight metallic flavor.
  • Day 3: Less swelling, thicker texture, sore, hot feeling before exfoliation with an orange color effect.
  • Day 4: Exfoliation begins…very chapped lips
  • Day 5: Very chapped but almost finished with the first chapping stage.
  • Day 6: A soft rich color begins to appear but often looks a little spotty.
  • Days 7-13: Lip color disappears and the frosty chapping stage begins as a whitish/grey haze appears on the lips.
  • Day 14: color blooms from within more and more each day until day 21.
  • Day 21: Healing complete: the color you see is the color you have. Your lips will remain a bit dry for a month or two, use a good lip balm and they will return to normal but with a nice full color.
  • Colors appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following procedure. As the healing progresses, color will soften but the final color is not visible for about 4 weeks post procedure.
  • Make-up may be used to tone color down until this time.
  • Day 1 Erythema/ Redness appearance will depend on the severity of the treatment performed.
  • Day 2 A red/purple/pink hue will persist like a moderate sunburn. Redness will be more even and more swelling may be noticeable. Mineral makeup can be worn. It is recommended to buy all new products for your freshly treated skin.
  • Day 3 Skin is substantially less pink, and normal coloring starts to return. Swelling begins to subside, some residual flaking/light scabbing will continue in the areas that were treated more aggressively.
