Femininity can be defined by beautifully colored and shapely lips. Permanent lip colors can vary from nude to voluptuous burgundy. Mia can create blended lip liners by shading edges producing a slight pout, or full lip color mimicking your favorite lipstick, or a combination.

Why permanently made-up lips?

• Because lip pencil and lipstick rub off when eating, smoking, and kissing

• Lips too thin

• Lips asymmetrical

• Lips too thick

• Badly or undefined outline

• Lips too pale

• Scars resulting from an accident

• Cleft-lip disfigurement

I do NOT do lip color on those who have had any dermal fillers; (Silicone, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Perlane or Gortex). Lips will feel swollen and tender for a few days following the procedure. However, they will only be slightly swollen. In fact, the majority of women enjoy the fuller shape of their lips following the procedure. Although you will feel comfortable with the size of your lips following the procedure, you will question the intensity of color on your lips. Be assured that the color of your lips will lighten significantly in just a few days. It is important to apply aftercare ointment to your lips consistently during the first week, especially. You will notice that on the second day post procedure, your lips will start of slough off the pigment. Do not pick at your lips. Allow your lips to slough off the pigment naturally. Usually, by day 4 or 5 the sloughing is complete. Your lips, at that time, will be quite light in color. However, they will begin to become more colorful with each passing week up to 6 weeks. They will soften into the beautiful shade you have been patiently waiting for. Meanwhile, you may apply an ice pack (which is protected with a wet barrier film of paper toweling) for 10 minute intervals for the first couple of days. Ice may be applied every hour or so, if desired. During the first two weeks, please follow these guidelines for beautiful lip color:

• Stay out of the sun (even up to 6 weeks) as the sun will quickly fade color.
• Be careful when brushing your teeth as toothpaste will pull out pigment.
• Do not bite into greasy, oily, salty or spicy foods, rather cut them up and place them into your mouth.
• Consistently apply the aftercare ointment to your lips. Use a clean Q-tip with each application.
• Do not pick or pull off the sloughing pigment, let it fall off naturally.
• You may wear lipstick after the first two weeks if the tube of lipstick is new.
• Make sure you take your anti-herpes medication to help prevent cold sores two days before your next lip appointment, if needed.
