Botox Before Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup lasts longer than Botox before you will decide to get an injection please consult with Permanent Makeup Artist.
Always be honest about any cosmetic injections that you had in the past. This helps to assure the best long-term results.
What is Botox
Botox injections work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles. The injected muscle can't contract. That makes the wrinkles relax and soften.
Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. It gives spectacular effects for about 6-9 months. The final results of Botox are visible after 4 weeks. That is why you can get permanent makeup 4 weeks after Botox.
This period determines your look and relaxation of muscles. Botox changes your look and if you don’t follow the rules your permanent makeup might look uneven.
Lip Fillers And Permanent Lip Tattoo
Many clients wonder if those two procedures could be done at the same time. Of course, you can have both procedures, but not at the same time. Actually, the combination of both treatments gives the best results, if you desire to have full and perfectly shaped lips.
Permanent makeup for lips gives them beautiful color and shape! Filler with hyaluronic acid will give them fullness, firmness, and moisturize.
What you have to remember is choosing the right technician and the right time for those procedures. It is good to plan the treatments and prepare for them.
First Lip Fillers or Lip Tattoo
If you are planning lip metamorphosis, you would like to have bigger lips, enhance the shape and color, the right treatment order gives the best results.
In most cases, we first recommend getting Permanent Lip Color
Mostly because results of permanent makeup last longer than lip fillers. Usually, pigment stays in the skin for about 2-5 years. Lip fillers last 6-12 months, depends on an individual. That’s why permanent makeup determines the long-term shape of your lips.
Even when lip fillers are gone you can still enjoy nicer color and shape. You can always get another lip filler treatment if you wish.
During permanent makeup, a lip procedure technician will improve uneven shape if it’s needed and give you a fresh color. After healing you can visit your aesthetic medicine doctor, who will add fullness to your lips.
If you are afraid of having too big lips, you can get a smaller amount of hyaluronic acid just to moisturize them. They will look more healthy and youthful.
When do we recommend starting from Lip Fillers?
In rare cases for example when a client has many wrinkles and cracks on lips we will start from lip injections to even out the structure of the lips for better pigment retention. Every client has different needs and goals that's why a consultation before treatment is a must.
Lip Blush After Lip Injections
Lips fillers change the shape and size of your lips, that is why if you already have them, we work on already shaped lips by the injector, not your natural shape. After you will lose fillers lips might look asymmetrical.
Please keep in mind that the process of getting rid of hyaluronic acid in your body goes faster than getting rid of pigment from your skin.
Many Permanent Makeup Artists like to work on already augmented lips because they stretch and smooth the skin.
Clients with lip fillers usually experience more swelling after the procedure.
We recommend the contourless lip blush technique, lipstick effect with sharp contour might look uneven when the client's lips start losing the fillers and go back to the natural shape.
