What is Lip Blush?
If you want to improve the appearance of your lips, lip blush is a popular procedure that adds color and definition to your lips. It can help with a variety of cosmetic concerns, including restoring color to lips, reducing lip lines without fillers, or camouflaging scars and hyperpigmentation. Overall, it enhances the color of your lips and can complement the rest of your facial features. Lip blush is a semi-permanent ink that we apply much like a popular treatment known as microblading. Our trained technicians have an artistic eye when it comes to matching the best lip blush color to your complexion. Please schedule an appointment at JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL to learn more about this popular treatment.
Lip blush is an excellent treatment option for men and women who desire more defined and fuller-looking lips. If you want to reduce the time you spend on makeup every day or you prefer not to wear it at all, lip blush can greatly improve your daily routine and your overall appearance. Additionally, the treatment helps patients who have a lip color that matches their complexion, or it can hide white spots on the lips. This treatment is available to patients who are 18 years and older. To be safe, our team cannot perform this procedure on pregnant or nursing women.
Our Lip Blush Technique
Before your procedure, we will complete a thorough consultation to discuss your concerns and listen to your cosmetic goals. Our team members will also set realistic expectations and provide detailed information about pre-care instructions, which may include not taking ibuprofen, fish oils, Vitamin E, or niacin. During the consultation, we will also determine the best color for you based on your complexion. Patients can choose from different tones, such as pink, coral, and red. To start your treatment, we will clean your lips and apply a numbing cream. Once you are completely numb, our skilled aesthetician will outline your lips and place the color much like a tattoo. This treatment can take about 1 – 2 hours to complete.
What to Expect
After your appointment, you will experience some mild swelling and discomfort. It may look like you had a filler injection because of the swelling. Initially, your lips will look darker. However, within the first four days, the color starts to fade, which gives your lips a more natural appearance. It's common to have certain side effects, such as tenderness, tightness, and chapped lips. This feeling is comparable to a sunburn. Depending on your skin, you may need multiple follow-up appointments to achieve your desired results. We will discuss how many you need during your consultation. Once we have achieved your cosmetic goals, your lip color should remain for a long time. Usually, we recommend receiving touch-ups every 1 – 3 years. Before you leave, we will provide detailed instructions on how to properly maintain your lip color.

"I have nothing but utterly exceptional things to say about my visits with Jem Med Spa in Elmhurst! My injector, Nicole is truly an artist. She studies your face and tells you exactly what you need to achieve a refreshed, yet VERY a natural look! She is incredibly kind in listening to what my goals are and her execution is always beyond exquisite. I was absolutely terrified of getting fillers, as it was my first time, but Nicole has such a caring bedside manner in a way that makes you feel like you’ve been best friends for years. I always appreciate how patient she is in answering all my questions, too! My aesthetician, Emily, is always fantastic. She is the absolute best. I struggle with rosacea and hormonal breakouts, which I know can be challenging to treat, but she always has a solution to help me achieve my best looking skin. Emily has customized a whole treatment plan for my skin going into fall so I can reach my skincare goals. I’ve gone through a couple of BBL laser treatments with her. She is always incredibly attentive in checking in with how I’m feeling each session so that I can maintain optimal comfort. I always look forward to my appointments at Jem MedSpa because of how AMAZING I feel when I leave. It’s all thanks to the quality providers who work here."- K.M. / Google / Aug 28, 2021
