Are you tired of refreshing your lip liner and/or lipstick several times during the day? Do the current all day lipstick brands make your lips dry or chapped? Would you like a professional opinion regarding the appearance of your lips and what can be accomplished with permanent cosmetics toward a more symmetric and fuller appearance? Is your inventory of $20 lipsticks getting financially out of hand and a burden to keep fresh and environmentally clean? Are you aware that in 2004 the FDA banned cow brains in lipsticks due to mad cow disease? One has to wonder what else is in this pretty container that we would not find ingredient attractive if we were just made aware. Do you wish you had some of the natural coloring you had when you were younger?

The application of different lip micropigmentation techniques to the lips allows:
* Restructuring of the lip shape.
* Enhance the color of the membrane itself, either partially or totally.
* Correct asymmetry.
* Illumination effect or optical correction of wrinkles in the upper lip.
* Optically increase the volume of the lips by applying light and shade techniques.
* A natural appearing permanent cosmetic lip liner can be applied to give more definition, correct uneven lips, which will result in a fuller appearance. The procedure also helps prevent lipstick from bleeding and can minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Full lip color can be applied in either a natural hue or a more vivid one. Wear your permanent lip color alone in a natural tone or apply different shades of lipstick over your permanent lip color for those occasions when you prefer a more dramatic look, you will find that the color lasts much longer when applied over permanent cosmetic lip color than it did to a bare lip. Because the coloring and shape of the natural lip is unpredictable, it is common for me to request you attend a consultation before an appointment for the actual procedure is scheduled. At the consultation, your color and shape objectives and probability of success with permanent cosmetic pigments and techniques will be discussed.
We will ask if you have ever had a cold sore or fever blister on the lips and if so what seems to be the trigger to this condition. If your answer to this question is “yes,” you will in all likelihood be requested to speak to your medical provider regarding a medication formulated specifically for a breakout, an antiviral medication.
