A Mouthful Of Microbladed Lips: The Real Deal About Lip Microblading
People have been talking more and more about microblading, especially those too busy to apply makeup on a daily basis. People are busy—no one needs to wonder how lip microblading became a trend. But for the uninitiated, here’s the real deal about lip microblading.
The real deal about lip microblading
Lip microblading is the most versatile lip enhancement procedure there is.
Our lip enhancement procedures at Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) can cater to everyone’s varying demands. We can change the size, shape, and color of your lips into whichever look you’re going for.
You can have full-looking lips blending with your natural color. You could get soft, pink lips similar to those of a newborn baby’s.
Of course, lip microblading requires prior consultation. Our expert artists can help you decide what look to go for. We carefully consider the frame of your face and the tone of your skin, so you can look your best.
Microblading is an experience
We don’t give you the kind of advice you’re never going to need again. At OPM, we help you have substantial microblading knowledge essential for your lips’ maintenance.
We know how it feels when you’re not sure if the changes in your lips are still normal or not. It’s important to have basic microblading aftercare know-how so you don’t risk anything.
Don’t be worried by slight to moderate swelling during your first three days post-enhancement.
Expect that, on the first two days post-microblading, your lips will feel nothing significant except for slight swelling. On the third day, however, your lips will be thicker and will feel hot or sore, so don’t forget to apply Vaseline.
Note that exfoliation begins on the fourth day and that you’ll have very chapped lips until the fifth day. Until, finally, on the 6th day, a soft and rich color begins to appear.
Your lips will appear pale after the first week. Lip color slowly disappears, and the frosty stage begins, as a grayish haze becomes dominant on the lips.
Don’t be scared—this is normal. The good news is that this is a sign that skin healing has begun. Around this time, the extra pigment trapped in the epidermis will shed as dead skin cells slough off.
Then, as the new skin naturally takes over at the top, the nice pigmented area under the skin can now be viewed. Color blooms from within more and more each day.
After 21 Days
Healing is normally complete on this day, so the color that you’re seeing is the final color of your lips. Lips will remain dry for a month or two, so make sure to wear lip balm. This isn’t just so your lips won’t feel dry—it also means the implanted pigment will be enhanced.
Expected that the color of your lips will also slightly vary on a daily basis. The changing temperature of your environment is one reason for this. Another is the condition of your body, like whether you are hydrated or dehydrated.
One exception for the healing time is when the client is older, say over 50 years of age. Responsible microblading lips procedure suggest on waiting for another one week for the total restoration of the natural collagen of the lip tissue to occur.
Get your best lips today
We will be very honest: a full lipstick look should not be expected after lip microblading. Microblading lip procedures do not replace makeup. However having a simple but effective flush will save you time and energy. You’ll only need simple and fast makeup to do the trick.
