LIPS

The perfect solution to streamline your beauty regimen or restore missing lip lines or faded lip color. For esthetic reasons lip micropigmentation can be used to enhance the contour of the lips toward a more pleasant, youthful, even pouty or sensual look. This service can help restore the lip edges damaged from cold sore outbreaks or to help reconstruct cleft lips. A variety of colors and techniques are available allowing you the convenience of a smudge free, easy to care for look.

Nowadays the trend is leaning towards a more natural and soft look, and while the full lip color is still a favorite, many are opting for a Lip Blush or tint type of effect.  This technique is accomplished by layering the color in soft layers rather than packing the color in as in the more traditional lipstick look.  Both styles have a place in the permanent makeup world and it's up to the individual to choose based on the everyday look their prefer.

If you are someone who wears minimal makeup then a soft tint is what you would prefer, where as if you live a lifestyle that requires a full makeup look daily, then a more opaque and dense color lip technique would fit your needs best. 

Its all about choosing the right technique that will allow you to simplify your routine and simplify your life.

 

POST PROCEDURE AND AFTERCARE

While we strive for perfection on every procedure, results cannot be guaranteed to be perfect after the initial procedure due to the many factors affecting both integration and retention of pigments in the skin. Permanent and Reconstructive Cosmetic makeup procedures are directly affected by the skin that they are performed on.

Factors ranging from medications, sun exposure, smoking, hormones and age all contribute to fading and must be taken into account during pre and post procedure.

A finishing session must be scheduled between 30 to 90 days after your initial procedure to attain the best results and to keep your procedure looking its best.

Please refrain from altering the post procedure protocol advised, use only ointments and creams provided or recommended by Avarté.

AFTERCARE

  • Immediately after the procedure gently blot any fluids with a lint free tissue twice during the first hour. After said hour proceed to apply with a Q-tip a very light coat of the ointment provided for the next 2 weeks or longer if desired
  • Avoid makeup, Retin-A & glycolic acids on pigmented areas while healing.
  • Avoid touching with fingers, sunscreens, direct sunlight, tanning beds and self-tanners on pigmented areas.
  • Avoid swimming pools, oceans, hot tubs, saunas and hot steamy showers. Shower with back to shower head to avoid water, shampoo and conditioner getting into pigmented area.
  • Avoid dirt (as in gardening), extreme perspiration for the first week to prevent infection.

  • Day 14 to day 29: The color will continue to bloom from within more and more each day until 4 weeks post procedure
