Lip Blush is a permanent tattoo that defines your lips, creating volume and fullness. It also corrects any asymmetry or darkness, giving your lips a very youthful appearance.
This varies from person to person depending on the client’s skin, lifestyle and health condition. Lip Blush is considered semi-permanent and they will fade over time. After touch up, the Lip Blush tattoo will last from approximately 2-5 years. If your skin is very oily or has iron deficiency, it will most likely fade faster.
Consultation is done on the actual date of your microblading procedure. However, you are welcome to contact me with any questions you may have. Prior to booking an appointment, please ensure that you have read and understand the FAQ, precare, aftercare and policy information.
Pain tolerance varies from person to person. We use a medical grade topical anesthetic for numbing the treated area before and during your procedure to make you feel comfortable and pain free as possible.

Cold sores is herpes simplex virus and many are not aware that they are a carrier of the virus as the signs are not always visible until it is triggered. Lip blush can trigger cold sores if you are a carrier of this virus therefore as a precaution, it is recommended that you take antiviral medication as cold sores can affect the healing result
- Have previous tattooed lips that is too dark or large (Please send us an email with a clear unedited photo (with no makeup) of your lips for evaluation prior to booking)
This procedure can trigger cold sores for carriers of the herpes simplex virus. To prevent cold sores from flaring up it is recommended to go to your family doctor and get Zovirax or another antiviral medication prescribed to take 5 days prior procedure, the day of, and 5 days after. Note that a cold sore outbreak can alter the healed results of the tattoo.
Touch ups are recommended, however, not necessary. On touch up sessions, we can alter the shape and color of your tattoo or go bolder or fill in spots that didn’t retain pigment as well as others during healing. Touch ups will also add longevity to the life of your tattoo. A touch up can be booked no sooner than 6 weeks of your last appointment.
Lip Blush generally requires two treatments at least 6-10 weeks apart to allow for the healing process to complete. The initial appointment will take approximately 3 hours.
Yes, however, in the first session we will have to color correct your lips to cancel out the cool tones. This means the initial color we tattoo must be orange. If we are to tattoo any other color you risk darkening your lips further or having absolutely no results at all. When healed at 6 weeks, most if not all of the darkness in your lips will be covered and your lips will have a nudey-pink even tone. Note that results cannot be guaranteed and lightening or evening out dark lips may take a few sessions. Under no circumstances will we tattoo a “nude” color on dark or cool toned lips.
If you have had your lips previously tattooed, unfortunately we do not offer cover-up or correction services. If your previous work is too dark, dense, discolored or large, we highly recommend a tattoo removal. Some special cases may be considered. Please send us an email with a clear unedited photo (with no makeup) of your lips for evaluation prior to booking.
On average, it may take approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and up to two to three months for the color to fully set in.
Microblading may last UP TO FIVE years. Depending on your skin type and preferred look, this timeframe will vary from person to person. Once pigment from your procedure begins to noticeably fade, you’ll need to come back for a “touch-up” application.
For ongoing touch ups, coming back in too soon or too often May result in a “muddy” appearance, meaning your individual strokes will start to blend together. If the skin is still saturated with pigment, doing a touchup will have no effect on your healed results. The skin can only absorb so much and will simply push the newly implanted pigment right back out. It will only be a waste of your time and money.
Not sure if you’re due for a touchup? Send us a picture and we will happily advise the best approach for you.
Pain is subjective, we all feel pain differently. Topical numbing may be used throughout your procedure to help with the potential discomfort. The results of your permanent makeup far outweigh the potential temporary pain or slight discomfort. Through years of experience, we have found the anticipation of not knowing what to expect can sometimes even be worse than the actual feeling of receiving permanent makeup. It will be worth it.
The cost of a touch up depends on the length of time since your previous treatment. The longer the time, the more pigment has likely faded, the more work needs to be done to touch up your previous permanent makeup application. We will review all pricing with you during your appointment.
A great suggestion is waiting the total time frame of your age plus ten days. So let’s say you’re 35, your touchup window would be no sooner than 45 days or between 6-7 weeks after your initial appointment.
There is no true downtime. You will have very clear instructions for aftercare, which is essential in the healing process in order to achieve the best results. There are certain limitations regarding sun exposure, sweating, going in a pool, etc. for a brief time after the treatment.
Scar Camouflage / 3D Areola Restoration
Depending on the area, a topical anesthetic may be applied to slightly numb the area in order to make the treatment comfortable. Most clients report that it is painless after anesthetic cream is applied.
This is a noninvasive procedure similar to a tattoo. Therefore, there is little to no downtime and most clients resume work the same day. However, aftercare is extremely important.
Medical pigment camouflaging is an unpredictable process,therefore, color spot test is crucial. As with cosmetic tattooing and permanent makeup, the final helped color may be different from when the pigment was initially applied. The area treated will be red, raised, and inflamed immediately after the procedure and may take a few days to subside but this is normal and to be expected.
If you have stretch marks, Magda can give you camouflage tattoo treatment; however, she advises you to try Boleyn inkless technique first and leave camouflage ink technique as a last option. Some clients have skin tone and stretch marks that are too close in color – in this case we would perform only Boleyn inkless technique. This involves the same steps as a camouflage tattoo, but without the use of any pigment colors. The skin on the stretch marks will be carefully damaged just enough to induce healing. Just remember, our treatment helps to make stretch marks less noticeable. Nothing will completely get rid of stretch marks.
Areola Restoration and Pigmentation is a non-surgical procedure that creates a realistic appearance of a natural nipple and areola to improve the aesthetic appearance. This paramedical micropigmentation procedure is used to correct the size, shape and color of areolas and has been an important restorative cosmetic procedure for my breast cancer patients.
This procedure is also a great option for those individuals who may not be fully pleased with the size, shape or color of their areola’s natural appearance. This procedure is often done in addition to scar camouflage exp. Brest lifts or breast reconstructions.
It is preferred that you wait three to six months after your final surgery or reconstruction, and that chemotherapy and/or radiation is finished. If before doctor written note is needed before any of the procedures. As a general rule, if you have any scars that still look red/purple and angry, you need to wait a little longer like year or so.
Some insurance may reimburse you partially of fully for Areola tattoo procedure, although we cannot guarantee reimbursement. Payment is still at the time of service, but we can provide you with all clinic forms, procedure protocols, and a description of tools and products used. You will need to file a claim with your insurance. Insurance typically covers 50-100% of reconstructive medical tattooing.
