Lip neutralization is a specialized procedure to address unique needs if your natural lip color is darker or more cool-toned. This treatment is particularly beneficial if you have a darker skin tone or if you’ve noticed your lips have been darkening over time. Sometimes, this can be caused by hyperpigmentation or a host of various factors, such as weather conditions or underlying medical concerns.
If you’d like to have a pinker pout but are struggling with makeup, lip neutralization is the best option to achieve that. This procedure involves lightening the lip area to achieve your best results, whereas lip blush involves injecting red/pink pigment to darken the lips.
Have you considered lip neutralization in the past? LISA OM. is here today to show you how the process works, how long it lasts, and just what our clients are saying about this procedure.
How Does Lip Neutralization Work?
Lip neutralization is a fairly straightforward process in our offices. Here’s a quick overview of the process.
The procedure will begin with an initial consultation with one of our experts. During this initial meeting, you will discuss your beauty goals with one of our beauticians. The consultation helps artists understand your specific preferences.
During the initial session, a neutralizing pigment is injected into the desired area to correct any cool tones present in the lips. Different colored pigments are used to help neutralize blue and purple tones on the lips.
Lip neutralization may take anywhere from 1-3 sessions in order to achieve your desired results. The time between each period will be around six weeks. This is to give your body enough time to heal and make sure the procedure is working.
In the final stage, after your lips have been neutralized and made a few shades lighter, you can choose to go forward with a lip blush treatment. Our beauty experts at LISA OM can help you pick out a specific color, which can then be injected into your lips.
How Long Does Lip Neutralization Last?
The longevity of lip neutralization varies from person to person. However, on average, the results last for one to two years. The duration depends on your lifestyle and exposure to external elements.
For instance, your lips will fade within a short time if exposed to the sun. Moreover, the results can be short-lived for individuals who smoke and those with oily skin. However, with regular touch-ups, you can maintain the results for a prolonged period.
At LISA OM, we recommend the following best practices to maintain the results, especially in the first few weeks after the procedure:
- Using sunscreen when outdoors
- Keeping your lips moisturized with a lip balm
- Prevent good lip hygiene to prevent infections
- Exfoliating your lips
- Using hypoallergenic makeup
Benefits of Lip Neutralization
Lip neutralization offers various benefits for individuals who choose to undergo the procedure. One of the main advantages is the creation of lighter and pinker lips, resulting in less time applying makeup like lipstick, lipliner, and lip gloss to the area.
The treatment can enhance color in dark or aging lips, improve lip symmetry, and correct color scarring. If you’re looking to achieve fuller-looking lips without injectables or surgery, lip neutralization would be the best solution for you!
Who’s a Good Candidate for Lip Neutralization?
Lip lightening and lip neutralizing are suitable for patients seeking an even lip tone, provided they have no medical conditions that may interfere with the treatment. Dark lip micro-pigmentation is a popular option for both men and women looking to enhance and balance their lip tone.
