Lip Blush Before or After Fillers?

First let’s just discuss the general descriptions of each service, then we will talk about the reasoning behind blushing your lips first.

About Lip Fillers

Lip fillers, also known as dermal fillers or lip injections, are cosmetic procedures that involve the injection of a gel-like substance into the lips to enhance their volume, shape, and contour. The most common filler used for lip augmentation is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps retain moisture and create plumpness. When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid fillers can add fullness, improve symmetry, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

Lip fillers are a popular choice for individuals looking to achieve fuller and more defined lips, and they offer a non-surgical option for lip enhancement. The effects of lip fillers are temporary and can last several months to over a year, depending on the specific filler used and individual factors. This allows individuals to adjust their lip appearance over time and explore various looks without committing to a permanent change. It’s important to have lip fillers administered by a qualified and experienced medical professional to ensure a safe and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

About Lip Tattoos

Lip blush tattoo, also known as lip blushing or lip tattooing, is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that involves the application of pigment to the lips to create a semi-permanent, enhanced, and subtly tinted appearance. Unlike traditional lip tattooing, which aims for a bold and long-lasting lip color, lip tattoos focuses on achieving a more natural and softly colored look, often resembling the natural hue of healthy lips.

During a lip blushing procedure, a trained and skilled tattoo artist or cosmetic professional will use a tattoo machine with a fine needle to deposit the pigment into the top layers of the lip skin. This can help to:

  1. Enhance Lip Color: Lip blush can intensify and enhance the natural color of the lips, making them look more vibrant.
  2. Add Fullness: The procedure can create an illusion of fuller lips by defining the lip border and adding a touch of color to the lip tissue.
  3. Define Shape: Lip blush can help correct minor asymmetries and irregularities in lip shape, resulting in a more balanced appearance.

Here are a few considerations if you have the option of getting lip blushing before lip fillers:

3 Considerations to get lip blush tattoo before getting fillers.

While both treatments can deliver the desired beautiful lips, it is advisable, if you can, to start with lip blushing. Regardless of the specialist you consult, they are likely to recommend this sequence for a good reason:

1. The key factor to weigh is the duration of effectiveness for each treatment.

  • Lip blushing boasts an impressive longevity, lasting up to three years without needing frequent touch-ups. After the initial procedure, you can enjoy delicately tinted lips and only schedule a touch-up roughly once a year.

2. In contrast, lip fillers tend to require more maintenance and are generally costlier.

  • By opting for lip tattoos as your initial step, you can potentially reduce the quantity of fillers required due to the shape adjustment and refreshed color it provides.

3. Another compelling rationale for choosing lip blushing before fillers is the potential impact of fillers on lip shape.

  • Applying lip tattoos over filled lips can result in an unnatural or mismatched appearance as the fillers gradually fade. In the worst-case scenario, your lip blush might appear distorted or disproportionate relative to your natural facial features, necessitating further adjustments.

To ensure the most harmonious and aesthetically pleasing results, professional cosmetic artists typically prefer to work on unaltered, natural lips. That being said, we do it the other way around as well. The artists at DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo are exceptionally good at their work, so, if you learned about lip blushing after you had your lips filled, please feel free to contact us and we will consult to determine the best options for the best outcome for you!
